Offering In-Office Zinc & Iodine Testing

During this time of year, many people have low levels of zinc and iodine in their systems. Right now, we’re offering zinc and iodine tests when you visit so we can ensure your body has all that it needs to function at its best.

Zinc Testing

Health

Zinc is one of the most important trace elements to help you heal. Often those suffering from autoimmune diseases, atopic problems such as allergies, eczema, asthma or migraines, or an inflammatory disease have a consistent and often severe zinc deficiency.

This simple zinc taste test is used to evaluate this common state of deficiency. You’ll sample zinc in water and if you taste the zinc it means you have the right amount in your body. If you don’t taste the zinc, it means your body is deficient.

If you are deficient, we’ll use zinc replacement therapy to help correct your body’s zinc levels.

Iodine Testing

Iodine is important for your thyroid to help keep you energized. It also helps balance your hormones, regulate your metabolism, heartbeat, cholesterol and much more. Often, a deficiency of iodine can cause hypothyroid function, another reason it’s important to test your levels.

By doing a simple patch test on your arm, we’ll be able to tell if you’re deficient. If your body absorbs the iodine from the patch, it tells us that your body is deficient. Once we complete the test, we can talk about what foods you can eat to regain normal iodine levels.

Wondering if a zinc or iodine deficiency is holding you back from feeling your best? Give us a call and we’ll setup a time for you to visit. (916) 965-8171
