Nutritional research

In addition to lifestyle, nutrition is one of the most important influencing factors on our health. Many people live with the idea that we are healthy if we eat a sufficiently varied diet. But that does not appear to be sufficient in practice. Unnoticed we eat too much carbohydrates and sugar in particular, too much sodium and too little potassium salts, too much sweet fruit and too little red fruit, etc... By means of blood tests it can be determined whether you are well balanced or whether there are some disturbances.

Most people are willing to do a lot to grow old healthy. You can't start this early enough. Prolonged minor disturbances in metabolic processes lead to different disturbances in each individual: one is mainly low-grade inflammation with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease, another is low-grade acidification with an increased risk of osteoporosis and yet another is bacterial overgrowth in the small intestine with an increased risk of chronic intestinal complaints and autoimmune infections. In short, it is very important to know which derailments occur in your case and which nutritional advice is best suited to your needs. By having blood and urine tests carried out, you can give tailor-made advice.

In addition, minor deficiencies in vitamins, minerals and essential nutrients cannot cause any complaints or problems at the moment, but in the long run they can lead to serious negative health effects. Hessels+Grob offers specific tests to detect these kinds of subtle abnormalities at an early stage. We also take subtle changes in the blood count into account in our report.

In our refresher courses you will learn how laboratory research can be helpful in the choice of dietary intervention and possible supplementation advice.
