Can you tell me about the supplements you use in your office?
With so many supplements out in the market today, it can be really overwhelming to know what is needed! I have personally tried many different brands and products, but it wasn’t until I began using whole foods based supplements that I saw tremendous changes! This sentiment has echoed through my clients voices and it’s totally amazing how well they work to support the body!
The supplements recommended in office are high quality, whole foods based nutrients that are only available through health care professionals. They include vitamins, minerals, herbals, and other nutritional support. The NNT supplements used are amino acids derived through fermentation and/or yeast sources.
It is very important, when purchasing supplements, to know your source! This article on purchasing supplements online (and why you shouldn’t do it!) is a great read and very informative.
Berkeley Nutrition does carry supplements in office to provide ease of purchase for clients. Supplements average $5-15/day for the first few months as the body is most depleted and has the greatest need of support.
What about lab tests? Hair tests? Saliva tests?
Yes! There are great tests out there that really help us better understand your story. Although BN does not order blood work, we can give you a list of specific tests to request from your Dr. While BN can not diagnose, we can help you better understand the results through education.
Salivary testing can provide and in-depth source of information, especially in regards to adrenal and hormone health. Hair Mineral Analysis testing is also a fantastic tool and is generally ordered during the Intake appointment to provide not only a baseline but helpful information to start.
Testing prices vary and recommendations are based upon each clients individual needs. Testing requested during the Intake appointment may average from $125-400, with followup tests at 3-6 months afterwards.
