If you are feeling off and you don’t know what it could be, chances are you could have a nutrient deficiency. These are easily overlooked because most people don’t know the signs. The most important thing to note is that you should always stay away from processed and fast foods and instead eat locally grown, chemical-free organic food as much as possible. Raw milk is the healthiest, as are truly free-range chicken eggs. Minimize meat and stick with organic grass-fed cows humanely treated and not injected with hormones and antibiotics. All this may be pricier, but we think your health is valuable.
Just making this change could help tremendously. If you are still feeling like you are in poor health, here are a few signs you might be suffering from a nutrient deficiency.
Heart: Irregular heart beat may indicate that you have a magnesium deficiency. High blood pressure can be remedied with lots of ascorbic acid and L-lysine daily. General heart health can be bolstered with CoQ10 or Ubiquinol.
Thyroid: A swollen throat, poor or slow digestion,and general sluggishness from hypothyroidism maybe improved by adding iodine supplements or iodine-rich foods from seaweed.
Low energy, anemia: Vitamin B12 is the go-to vitamin for these signs. Make sure that you use methylcobalamin sublingual tablets or skin patches only and include the other B vitamins as well.
Skin: Cold hands doesn’t always indicate a “warm heart.” It can indicate hypothyroidism (iodine deficiency) or low magnesium levels. Excessive of spontaneous bleeding can be from insufficient vitamin C and/or vitamin K.
