We Are Not Deficient in Isolated chemicals such as D3 or "Vitamin C" (ascorbic acid), rather, in food and/or enzymes. Enzyme therapy is one of the most effective clinical tools offered here at Heather Holistics. Enzymes cause chemical reactions. They are activators of cellular processes, or as Wikipedia says “enzymes are macromolecular metabolic catalysts”. Enzymes are known to catalyze thousands of biochemical reactions within the human body. You may have heard of taking digestive enzymes - a must in my opinion (unless you eat only from your garden and consume the produce within an hour of harvest, thus having a perfect diet with your food containing all the necessary live enzymes intact to digest itself within you. Otherwise, the body must manufacture the enzymes to break down your food. This burden placed on the body eventually leads to an enzyme deficiency then a mineral and other nutrient deficiency that is required to produce the enzymes with in your body in the first place. As you can begin to see how the downward spiral of declined health begins).
There are simple and effective ways to assess deficiencies. Clinically, the use of a symptoms survey along with in house tests, provide a foundation and rarely do we need laboratory testing if one follows my recommendations that I make based upon my evaluations. This means your body gets what it needs and you save money in the long run, with sustained health and without expensive laboratory testing only in the search for answers without the addressing of the issue. I encourage you to inquire about our family plans and stop wasting time and your resources throwing “vitamins” at your loved ones. Instead find out what your body needs by getting custom Naturopathic care. Part of a symptoms survey is a digestive questionnaire. This tells us what you are not digesting well so that we can provide a digestive enzyme formula specifically for your needs.
Another reason the use of symptom questionnaires are important in the evaluation of one's health is that we can see what relates to toxicity verses other signs of health problems. I often find that nutritional deficiencies are among the highest priorities. It is not so much about eliminating toxins or killing pathogens as it is the need of nutritional restoration. In fact, when one is nutritionally sustained, the body functions optimally, thus kills pathogens, eliminates toxins, and so on. It is easy to get caught up in "what to get rid of" or "kill", just as allopathic medicine puts its focus on rather than finding the cause and ultimate need.
Minerals and nutrients we call "vitamin B" are a requirement for a ton of metabolic functions such as the production of enzymes (digestive and metabolic enzymes) that sustain life.
Top 3 Vitamin B deplete-ers: -Sugar -Grains that are not soaked or sprouted -Commercially prepared foods (restaurant food, anything packed, canned and frozen)

B vitamin deficiency is common, however taking the isolated chemical is not recommended. It can NOT do what nature does! Join us for Equip - a class on diet and nutrition, also obtaining metabolic balance and how to customize your eating plan/diet.
