               Do you want to find out which nutrients are deficient in YOUR body? Do you want to decrease the amount of supplements you're taking on a daily basis?  It’s possible to test true nutrient deficiencies in the body through using SPECTRACELL Micronutrient Panel.  At Santa Cruz Naturopathic Medicine we can test your levels of 33 vitamins, minerals, amino/fatty acids, antioxidants, and metabolites with a simple blood test.  This helps to inform which nutrients you actually NEED to be supplementing through oral or IV nutrition, targeting your unique biochemical makeup.

Once we determine your unique nutrient deficiencies, we will counsel you on which dietary changes and supplements, and IV Nutrient Therapy protocols can benefit you.  We can also determine WHY you are low in the first place.
