Dr. Sierra works with individuals who have a variety of different conditions. Each person’s diet is formulated to be different. Food allergies, one’s blood type, a personal tendency toward weight gain, pre-diabetes, known cardiovascular disease or cholesterol elevation, and, a preference for vegetarian diet are all considerations in the development of an individuals’ diet.
There are also issues about eating lower in the food chain for diminishment of toxin intake, blood type diets and diets that are balanced with our particular cell markers-called lectins. There are a lot of individual diet approaches, and while the novice might feel very confused by which advice to follow, Dr. Sierra has a keen sense for finding the universal truths in different plans while helping individuals to balance different health and eating goals with the appropriate diet.
Dr. Sierra uses SpectraCell Laboratories to discern nutritional deficiency, immune system strength, and antioxidant activity. View sample of SpectraCell Lab Report.
Below are a few elements that also need to be factored into the choice of our diets:
Because each of us is metabolically and biochemically unique, the micronutrient requirements for one person may be quite different than the requirements for another.
Although you may eat a balanced diet, if you do not absorb vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and/or other essential micronutrients properly, you will have deficiencies.
Health conditions such as arthritis, cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, fatigue and multiple sclerosis (to name a few) can be affected directly or indirectly by micronutrient deficiencies.
Our micronutrient requirements at age 30 are quite different from our requirements at age 40, 50 and beyond. Absorption difficulties, especially of vitamin B12, quite commonly occur as we age.
Excessive physical activity, prescription drugs, smoking, alcohol and sedentary habits all impact micronutrient demands.
Detoxification means cleaning the blood. It does this mainly by removing impurities from the blood in the liver, where toxins are processed for elimination. The body also eliminates toxins through the kidneys, intestines, lungs, lymph and skin. However, when this system is compromised, impurities aren’t properly filtered and every cell in the body is adversely affected.
A detox program can help the body’s natural cleaning process by:
Detoxification, especially when correlated with known environmental toxic exposure, or, high heavy metals, can decrease toxic load strain improving a myriad of bodily functions, restoring a youthful energy and metabolism for the patient.
