Five Reasons You Need NutrEval Testing

As someone wise once said, “knowledge is power.” And really, your health is no exception to that rule.

So when it comes to figuring out why you haven’t been feeling as well as you used to, why would you settle for anything less than the most thorough diagnostics and most talented diagnosticians possible?

Without having in-depth testing performed, the best any physician can do is treat your symptoms instead of the root cause.

And what does this mean? More medications, side effects and headaches to worry about.

But with the help of NutrEval testing, Dr. Young and Dr. Sana Chrystal, N.D., D.C. can create a detailed report of exactly what is happening inside your body and help you understand how it affects your wellness.

There are hundreds of reasons to give NutrEval testing a shot, but we decided to provide you with five to get you started.

1. Knowledge Is Power & Data-Driven Healthcare Is the Future

Vitamin C and Omega-3s are familiar enough — you can find plenty of supplements and commercials insisting on their importance. But what about methionine, an amino acid that is essential to your metabolic health?

There are very few bottles of methionine supplements available anywhere convenient, but without it, you can experience a range of difficulties with your metabolism.

And how about molybdenum? There’s a good chance you’ve never heard of it, despite the critical role it plays in breaking down drugs and other toxic substances that enter your body. Without this mineral, your body will struggle to rid itself of pollutants that can adversely affect you.

We could continue and list the 130+ different biomarkers and 40 different antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and other nutrients that NutrEval tests, but it’s easier to understand we don’t know what we don’t know — until we check for it, that is.
Once we perform testing that allows us to “see” inside your body, our doctors can make informed diagnoses and design a customized treatment plan to help you reach optimal wellness.

2. It Coincides With A Holistic Approach

Dr. Young and Dr. Chrystal are naturopathic physicians, which means their goal is to understand your conditions’ root causes and do her best to use natural remedies — not medication — to get you back to where you need to be.

NutrEval allows them the ability to understand your wellness at a fundamental level.

With that tool in their arsenal, they can diagnose underlying conditions and provide tailored treatments ranging from IV therapy to weight loss management.

3. Everyone Is A Candidate

Not every illness can be solved, but everyone can stand to benefit from naturopathic medicine in some way.

This means everyone is a good candidate for NutrEval testing since it is one of the best ways to set you up for success with naturopathic treatment.

If you want to avoid a prescription-first approach to medicine, are an educated person looking for personalized care, prefer resolution-based medicine, or what to take charge of your own health, then diagnostic testing with Young Wellness Center and NutrEval is a good place to start.

4. It Is No More Invasive Than Regular Lab Work

You read that right: the technique for NutrEval testing is absolutely no different than the countless other times you have been ordered down to the lab for blood and urine testing.

It might be confusing that the same testing techniques can yield more results, but here is the truth of the matter:

1) NutrEval provides a more in-depth report to get a way better understanding of your wellness.

2) We understand how to examine biomarkers differently. We consider all 12 systems of your body holistically, and our approach encompasses wellness and prevention rather than just treating disease.

NutrEval is an exciting opportunity to get to know your body at a deeper level. This information is the foundation for a life lived long and well.

5. When You Know Better, You Do Better

Imagine getting behind the wheel of a car for the first time with no instruction. You might be able to figure out how to turn on the ignition, but then what? Could you tell the brake pedal from the gas? Could you decipher anything on the dashboard? Would you know the road rules (and what might happen if you just winged it)?

We don’t learn how to drive that way because we know it’s dangerous. Our life is at stake (not to mention the lives of those around us), so we learn from experienced drivers and instructors before hitting the open road.

Why not approach your health with a similar sense of gravity? Your body is a complex machine with multiple systems, just like that car, and the right instructor can teach you how to operate it optimally.

Dr. Young and Dr. Chrystal are our instructors, and one of their most powerful tools is the in-depth testing used to discover what is happening inside your body. As we like to say, “Don’t guess, TEST!” NutrEval can help you figure out your health, plan a road map to wellness and make better decisions to get you there.
