Undiagnosed Vitamin & Mineral Insufficiencies Create Health Problems.
Karen Fitzpatrick-Dame, ChhC, AADP
There is a difference between nutrient "deficiencies" and "insufficiencies".
Nutrient deficiencies rarely go undiagnosed because they cause severe and specific symptoms. However, many of us have vitamin and/or mineral insufficiencies, which means we aren’t getting an adequate amount to be healthy, but we still have enough to avoid any serious problems. Iron, vitamin D, iodine, zinc, and selenium are all important micronutrients for thyroid health, and many women have insufficiencies in at least one of them.
Insufficiencies in some of these minerals, such as zinc and selenium, are linked to Hashimoto’s disease. Many other conditions and health problems are also linked to insufficiencies in these micronutrients. Make sure you’re eating a variety of fruits and vegetables every day. It helps to eat different colors of fruits and veggies as a way to get your micronutrients. You might also want to take a Whole Food Multi if you find you’re still not getting enough of the necessary vitamins and minerals through food alone.
Hormone imbalances can also be triggered by nutrient insufficiencies. Many products that we use in our everyday lives contain synthetic estrogen-like chemicals known as xenoestrogens. These chemicals are found in cosmetics, fragrances, and even plastic containers. Xenoestrogens are pro-inflammatory and play a role in the development of autoimmune diseases by affecting the immune cells. Even natural estrogen can trigger autoimmune disease in some women who have more of the pro-inflammatory estrogen type. Life's Healthiest Happy Hormones Whole Food Nutritional Therapy blend delivers the nutrients from food that help to create a better hormone balance.
Nutrients from food are really the best and the safest way to get vitamins and minerals we need. When we get our nutrients from foods, the body recognizes them, absorbs them and utilizes them much better than they do from synthetically created vitamins and minerals.
