Nutritional Testing

Are YOU getting the nutrients YOU need?

“50% of those taking multivitamins are still nutritionally deficient” – Dr. Willima Shive, University of Texas at Austin

Why is Nutritional Status Important?

Vitamin, mineral and antioxidant deficiencies have been shown to suppress the function of the immune system which can contribute to degenerative processes such as arthritis, cancer, cardiovascular disease and diabetes.

Standard Tests Do Not Measure if the Nutrient is Properly Functioning within the Body

At Kansas City Chiropractic we utilize an exclusive patented micronutrient test developed by SpectraCell Laboratories. SpectraCell’s Micronutrient tests measure the function of 35 nutritional components including vitamins, antioxidants, minerals and amino acids within our white blood cells.  Scientific evidence shows us that analyzing the white blood cells gives us the most accurate analysis of a body’s deficiencies.

What results will I see?

SpectraCell’s Micronutrient lab results include an overview page with all deficiencies listed, numeric and graphic reports easily identifying deficiencies and repletion and supplementation recommendations.
