How is a deficiency diagnosed?
Conventional methods simply take a blood sample and measure the serum concentration of a particular vitamin or mineral. Static serum levels cannot accurately assess cell metabolism and utilization. At the Health & Vitality Center, the practice founded by our holistic doctor in Los Angeles, Dr. Shiva Lalezar, we use SpectraCell micronutrient testing because it measures how micronutrients are actually functioning within your cells.
Holistic Treatment Options
First and foremost, the gut function will be optimized to improve absorption of nutrients.
Then heavy metals such as mercury, lead, aluminum, and cadmium will be chelated out of your cells. If these metals remain in your system, they cause calcium to leak out of your bones.
All hormones such as estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, and DHEA are optimized. These hormones prevent bone loss and rebuild bone structure. As a result, your bone density will increase on your dexa bone scan.
Aside from IV vitamin therapy, Dr Lalezar has a powerful nutritional supplement protocol that also aids in restoring your bones. This protocol not only stops osteoporosis but it reverses it.
