Natural Paths to Wellness Offers Advanced Micronutrient Testing

Apr 02, 2015 05:33PM

New in 2015, Natural Paths to Wellness, in Camp Hill, has added advanced micronutrient testing to their practice to assist with nutritional status assessments to help optimize clients’ health. “A common assumption is made in medicine that patients are eating and assimilating the nutrients from their food that they need to heal,” says Jessica Shoemaker, BS, ND, Natural Paths to Wellness owner. “However, I’ve found with over a decade of experience, oftentimes this isn’t true.” University research, according to William Shive, Ph.D., chairman of the department of biochemistry and a researcher in the field of nutrition at the University of Texas, shows that 50 percent of people taking multivitamins are still nutritionally deficient. Extensive scientific and clinical studies spanning more than 50 years have repeatedly demonstrated that vitamin, mineral and antioxidant deficiencies can have adverse effects upon health.

“SpectraCell micronutrient testing, the leader in cellular micronutrient testing, is unique and exciting, because unlike measuring static levels of certain nutrients, the tests look at white blood cell levels that represent the last three months of a patient’s nutritional status,” says Shoemaker, “thus allowing practitioners to provide a clinically driven wellness plan and make appropriate adjustments when indicated.”
