Beaumont Weight Control Center Now Offers MicroNutrient Testing
Date:10/30/2009

HOUSTON, Oct. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- In response to the current trend toward personalized medicine, the Beaumont Weight Control Center, affiliated with Beaumont Hospitals, a major Detroit-area health system, now offers individualized MicroNutrient Testing for patients. This addition to their weight loss program helps patients identify their specific nutritional deficiencies in 30 different vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, using a patented technology from SpectraCell Laboratories.

There is also overwhelming evidence that nutritional deficiencies, if not corrected, can cause any number of diseases, such as arthritis, allergies, cancer, diabetes, obesity, depression, fatigue, heart disease, and dozens of other conditions, many whose etiology is often difficult to pinpoint.

SpectraCell's MicroNutrient Test reports this valuable personalized information. A person's white blood cells are introduced to various nutrient environments and their growth response is measured. Changes in growth determine if that person has what is called a functional deficiency in any of the tested nutrients.

Most people know that gross nutrient deficiencies can cause specific diseases, such as vitamin C and scurvy or vitamin D and rickets. However, when the deficien
