Micro-Macronutrients Treatments (Micro – Macro-Nutrients)
It concerns the administration of special supplements, vitamins, trace elements, minerals, and amino acids, while therapy may be also combined with special nutrition.
The treatment regimen is configured according to any deficiencies, dysfunctions and biochemical imbalances at the cellular level.
Food nutrients act as the key stimuli that determine whether cellular function is smooth or not.
At the molecular level, the interaction between nutrients and other dietary bioactive elements, affects genes, which then influence protein expression, i.e. metabolism.
This simply means that the deficiency of certain nutrients results gradually in Disease through the necessary for the organism chemical reactions, and it is the cause of chronic and autoimmune diseases.
Therapeutic Protocols of Micronutrients – Treatments.
In patients with chronic and autoimmune diseases, chemical aberration at the organism’s functional level may be restored. Following the appropriate biochemical and metabolic exams, dysfunctions are detected and existing deficiencies are identified.
There are many exams available to ultimately determine treatment, depending on the patient’s Medical History. The cost of most of them is affordable and the results are ready within two to three days.
Micronutrients protocols, according to the American Standards, are differentiated depending on the chronic or autoimmune disease, as well as many other factors. Thus, they specify strictly dosage, duration, quantity and combination of nutrients (formula) in each person.
Depending on the treatment of the disease or diseases, the extent of lesions, and the individual findings, treatment may last from three months to one year to fully restore the patient’s clinical picture.
Patients do not modify their daily life, while they gradually see their overall health status being improved.
These therapies are systematically used in clinical practice since 1997, and the country of departure was the United States of America, while they are not contradictory to any other concurrent pharmaceutical or homeopathic treatment.
The appropriate treatment is that which ultimately provides the best possible benefit, according to the clinical outcomes and the relevant exam markers.
