The Key to Optimal Health: Understanding Nutritional Deficiencies

Spectracell sampleWhy do we get sick? Can we blame it on age? Is it because a co-worker or family member shared their germs? Maybe it’s because we are genetically at risk? Each of these factors has some influence on your wellness, but the bigger influence may be your micronutrient status, including nutritional deficiencies.

Personalization Through Custom Compounding at Village Green

compound-labWhat does that mean? It means that at Village Green Apothecary, we know that not everyone is the same. One prescription or vitamin or face cream is not necessarily going to work both for you and for the person walking in behind you.

We strive to make sure that you get what you need as an individual. We want to hear your stories, struggles and concerns so we can find what works best for you. One way we do this is through our compounding lab.

We’re Here to Help: Individualized Nutrition That’s Specific to You, Not Someone Else

mountain-joyIf you are overwhelmed when you walk into a health store and see the aisles of bottles and products that are available, you’re not alone. While our industry has amazing natural solutions as well as prescriptions to help heal the body and deliver the right nutrients to create vitality, it can be overwhelming.

Many of us take a hodge-podge approach to our nutrient needs. Maybe you take one thing that was recommended by a past doctor, and something else that your spouse bought. Or you might have watched a show or read an article about something, so you added that to your regimen, as well. Did you ever stop to wonder if these are the right things for you?

Studies show that 98% of people have unmet nutrient needs or deficiencies that could lead to poor health, symptoms and chronic conditions. In fact, it’s been shown that 75% or more of serious chronic conditions are created not from our gene pool, but from toxins, lifestyle and nutrient deficiencies. So perhaps you have more control of your health than you thought!

What if you could have a personal health genie at your fingertips to provide solutions to help you feel your best? What if this genie were able to access thousands of medical and clinical studies and match your needs with the most recent research? If you were able to take the right nutrients for your needs, think how great you might feel.  Continue reading “We’re Here to Help: Individualized Nutrition That’s Specific to You, Not Someone Else”
