Metabolic Balance® Success Stories Part 1


I first heard about Metabolic Balance® back in 2018.  I was instantly intrigued about this program, and hoped to bring it into my clinic at some stage so that I could help my patients create even better, brighter futures.  As it turned out, 2020 was the right time, and I […]

Zinc.  In my opinion it’s one of the most underrated and overlooked nutrients when it comes to health.   Thankfully, it happens to be one of the easiest minerals to assess for, and also one of the easiest deficiencies to correct with the right foods and if necessary, appropriate supplements.
