Prescription nutrient depletions

Prescription nutrient depletions, when addressed, can dramatically boost your healing efforts. Sick or not, the body processes needed for good health rely on the presence of fundamental nutrients.

A word on metabolism

Metabolism is the body’s way of breaking down and building up energy at a cellular level. Without this process, the vitamins and minerals we eat and produce inside of us would not be used effectively. Fighting any illness, whether regarding cardiovascular, immune, hematological, neurological, viral or hormonal systems, requires nutrients that can only be made useful by proper metabolism.

Metabolism of nutrients has endless benefits:

  • Nutrients are needed to produce neurotransmitters and hormones.
  • Vitamins and minerals help convert nutrients and are needed for continued metabolic health.
  • Fatty acids form the structures of our cells.
  • Flavonoids and carotenoids help our cells function.
  • Proteins, carbs, fats, vitamins, minerals and other nutrients are all needed to build muscle. Stronger muscles go along with stronger metabolisms.
  • Boosting your metabolism is possible, even with Lyme Disease.

I just needed to emphasize why you should take any nutrient depletions seriously.

Now let’s get into the prescription nutrient depletions that are typical for Lyme Disease patients.

I just wanted to give you a reference so you can further investigate your personal health profile. Blood work and mineral analysis via hair and urine may be better personal references. Also, it is always better to get your nutrients from real food than synthetic supplements.

In summary, prescription nutrient depletions are a genuine concern and should be considered in your Lyme  treatment protocols.

  1. Meditation helps you lose weight by putting you into the right mind set to do so.
    For example, if you are too busy to exercise, you want to conduct your search to reflect this issue.

    The men exercising half as much, however, seemed to grow energized and inspired.

  2. I got this web site from my pal who told me about this site and at the moment this time I am browsing this web page and reading very informative articles or reviews
    at this time.
