Holistic Nutrition

Nutrition is a key element of good health. Holistic nutrition is the modern natural approach to developing a healthy balanced diet while taking into account the person as whole. Holistic health is an approach to treating a person’s well being by taking into consideration all aspects of life. A long term course of action includes emotional and spiritual health along with the physical body. Modern traditional medicine tends to focus on treating symptoms rather than finding the root cause. If a person is experiencing a symptom or chronic condition, the problem has most likely been developing for some time. The goal of holistic nutrition is to facilitate a health recovery plan as well as build a strong foundation for long term optimum health.

Nutrition TestSunu can provide nutritional blood panels through US BioTek Food Sensitivity. US BioTek Food Sensitivity tests measure 96 different foods for reactivity across both IgG and IgA spectrums. An adverse reaction to food may also show up as a weakened immune system, rashes, achy joints, eczema, fatigue, etc. Symptoms may also be as simple as any perceptible change in how we feel and/or function.

Other possible signs that you have a food sensitivity:

  • Moodiness, brain fog, headaches
  • Food cravings
  • Fatigue
  • Heartburn
  • Joint pain
  • Acne, rosacea, dark circles
  • Gas, bloating, constipation

Review the sample lab report to the right to see some (but not nearly all) of the 96 foods tested. The test is simple and quick, done at Sunu using just the blood from a finger prick. The results are usually ready in about 10-14 days.
