6 Signs Involving Your Gut Function Leading To Possible Autoimmune Disease

By on Jun 7, 2017 in Autoimmune Disease | 0 comments

One may ask…..”why are there so many autoimmune diseases seen today?” In our world today, there are quite a few environmental toxins and or chemical that constantly attack and hit at us daily.   Also, there are many of us with a deficit in basic nutrients that our body is needing.  We are lacking in many of the minerals, vitamins, amino acids, water, and fiber that  our body is needing to maintain good health. There is a current article – Why An Apple Today Is Not Good, explaining some of the reasons  health care providers are findings nutritional deficits. “Modern farming methods are blamed for the decline in minerals such as copper, iron, magnesium and potassium in fruit and vegetables. Crops are being grown in soil stripped of its goodness”. “Vitamin loss could be exacerbated by fruits being picked before they are ripe”. Dr Thomas said: “We found that since 1940, the minerals and other nutrients that help to make fruit and vegetables good for you have been in startling decline. Eating fruit and vegetables is still beneficial for health, but continuing falls in nutrients could lead to deficiencies in some consumers”. – Read more about this from this article: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-207652/Why-apple-today-good.html Another major concern as an autoimmune risk factor is the changes we are seeing in our microbiome – our invisable organ’ .  Our gut is very involved in a ‘cross talk’ with the brain and our immune system.  A disruption of our gut microbiome is the beginnings of most all autoimmune diseases.  Anything that we eat will affect or gut whether it is positive or negative.

What is BioMeridian Testing?

By on May 19, 2014 in BioMeridian Testing | 0 comments

So, what is BioMeridian testing and why do you need it?   You can see a section from my webpage that describes what actually happens during a BioMeridan Test, but for now, here is a simple breakdown of the process: You come in and sit in a chair; we have a chat about how things are going in your life, diet, exercise, etc.  I will then use a prob on certain points of your hands and feet.  This process takes about 15 minutes.  When complete, we will go over the results in detail and you can find out how your body is doing.  See which levels that your body shows that are different from the norm.  Each BioMeridian scan includes a consultation with a medical provider to discuss how to repair any issues discovered in the BioMerdian test.  We can set up a diet and exercise plan for you to follow to help get the results you want! The reason BioMeridian Testing is so important is because it can show us early signs of autoimmune diseases, health issues, and even cancer!   Here is what the definition of BioMeridian testing: The Biomeridian scanner is a sophisticated piece of equipment designed to measure 58 different electrical “circuits” in your body related to specific organs and systems. Your measurements are then compared against a database of over 1.5 million tests to identify areas of your body that have moved away from the norm. With that powerful information we will effectively formulate a comprehensive nutritional support program that includes detailed recommendations for an optimal supplementation regimen customized to your specific needs.   If you feel like your body is constantly  tired, you feel pain, you are fatigued, or out of energy, I would deeply recommend coming in and seeing what’s going on with your body and we can start treating these symptoms the functional way, without the use of medicines.  It’s helpful to know and starting treating these diseases before they get worse… treat them now.     Carol Stowell Family Nurse Practitioner Salt Lake City, Utah 801-634-2651 I am available at American Wellness or call me to set up an appointment.
