“Personalized healthcare is the way to achieve optimal, balanced wellness and prevent chronic disease,” began Barbara Griffin, NMD, CNC, Certified Gluten Practitioner and now a clinician for SpectraCell Laboratories, Inc. “Spectracell’s advanced diagnostic lab testing coupled with the information I gain through the use of the EAV Meridian Stress Assessment will allow for a health plan that is completely personalized to the client. As a result, greater client outcomes can be achieved.”
Dr. Griffin has established several convenient avenues for clients to get started with the expansive diagnostic tests Spectracell Laboratories offers. To request a blood draw kit and locate a draw site, interested clients can call Dr. Griffin at (708) 226-1131, e-mail her at vitalhealthbarb(at)aol(dot)com, or make an appointment to see her at Vital Health, Inc. Test results will be sent back to Dr. Griffin at which time she will interpretive the results and develop a treatment plan.
Dr. Griffin shared, “For a client diagnosed with Celiac Disease suffering from nutritional deficiencies and malabsorption is common. The SpectraCell’s Nutritional Testing can identify important nutrients the client could be deficient. Overtime, if left untreated these deficiencies can cause other potential health problems. Once specific deficiencies are identified, the EAV can help narrow down the correct dose and type of nutrient the body will best respond to in order to create balance within the body.”
Dr. Griffin also explained that taking multiple prescriptions could cause a person’s nutritional status to deplete. For example, taking antacids and ulcer medications can cause Vitamin B12, folic acid, calcium, and iron and zinc deficiencies. When the body is depleted in these nutrients anemia, depression, osteoporosis and heart and blood pressure irregularities can develop.
Established in 1993, SpectraCell Laboratories, Ins. has been a pioneer in the field of laboratory functional testing for micronutrients. Below is a brief description of the diagnostic testing Dr. Griffin can offer:
Nutritional testing: Vitamin, mineral and antioxidant deficiencies have been shown to suppress the functions of the immune system, which can contribute to degenerative processes. The nutritional testing panel help detect deficiencies. Supporting the body with the required nutritional supplements can help decrease the onset of chronic disease as well as manage the aging process.
Cardiovascular testing: Standard cholesterol testing only provides part of the picture leaving many people with "normal" cholesterol numbers unaware that they are still at risk for a heart attack. The National Cholesterol Education Program introduced new risk factors that are responsible for many individuals at risk for cardiovascular disease. These risk factors can only be identified with advanced lipoprotein testing.
Genetic testing: Telomere Testing: Assess your biological age with Telomere Testing by measuring the length of your telomeres in relation to the your age. ApoE Genotyping: Apolipoprotein E Genotyping determines your genetic risk associated with the Apolipoprotein E gene. Results of this test have important implications in the treatment strategies for patients in reducing cardiovascular risk. MTHFR Genotyping: SpectraCell's MTHFR Genotyping determines an individual’s genetic risk associated with the MTHFR gene. Results of this test have important implications in the treatment strategies for patients in reducing risk.
