o feel your best, eating a balanced diet, exercising, and taking a multivitamin may not be enough. Your body is unique, and its complexity means a customized approach to health care is the best way to achieve optimal health. Dr. Michelle Starke at The Center for Gynecology & Restorative Medicine in Coral Gables, Florida is an expert in nutritional evaluation and creating a custom vitamin therapy plan that meets each patient’s individual nutritional needs.
Nutrition is at the core of integrative health, and micronutrient testing by SpectraCell Laboratories is the most advanced diagnostic tool available. Micronutrient testing measures the levels of 35 nutrients, including vitamins, antioxidants, minerals, and amino acids that are actually functioning within your white blood cells.
The results will list any deficiencies found and can be used in the prevention and treatment of chronic diseases including arthritis, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and cancer.
IV Vitamin Therapy
If your micronutrient test results indicate any deficiencies, Dr. Starke may recommend intravenous (IV) vitamin therapy as part of a treatment plan. IV vitamin therapy offers rapid results on a cellular level by correcting nutritional deficiencies and boosting your immune system and metabolism. It can be individualized to meet your specific nutritional needs.
IV vitamin therapy is a safe alternative to traditional vitamin capsules. The procedure only takes 15 minutes. Anyone can benefit from IV therapy as it improves general health, but it is especially helpful for people who are suffering from chronic diseases and weakened immune systems.
