Nutrient Deficiencies

I’m Jody King Colegrove with Quantum Techniques. Today, I want to discuss nutrient deficiency. There are seven nutrients that many people are lacking. The first one is iron. It is a necessary component in the hemoglobin in blood, which transports oxygen to the lungs and circulatory system. Note that if we have too much iron, it can create cancer and also heart disease.

The second one vitamin E, which we can obtain naturally through eating things like avocados, broccoli and almonds. They have antioxidants, which helps to boost the immune system. They are an ambassador and a translator to the cells, helping them to communicate effectively to one another. That’s why they’re very important.

The third common nutrient deficiency is vitamin A, which is essential for healthy skin, teeth, bones, and vision. It also increases the integrity of our cell membranes. Beta carotene, which is a precursor to vitamin A, is found in fruits and vegetables, as well as multivitamins. Vitamin A is particularly important for the digestive track and the gallbladder, Not having enough vitamin A is a leading cause of blindness.

The fourth one is vitamin D, which helps with breast cancer prevention, is useful for those with Alzheimer’s, and supports the the immune system. Additionally, if we don’t have sufficient levels of vitamin D then our bodies cannot process other vitamins, particularly absorption of vitamins A and K, as well as calcium.

Number five is magnesium, which helps with nerve and muscle function, genetic synthesis, energy production and balancing, absorption of other key nutrients like vitamin C and iodine, hormone health, the quality of sleep, and the protection from heavy metals like mercury and aluminum.

The sixth one is vitamin C. We’ve all heard that if we want to boost our immune system to take vitamin C. It also helps with the cardiovascular system and the absorption of iron in our food. It’s an antioxidant, and it helps in the formation of collagen and wound healing.

The seventh and final common nutrient deficiency is vitamin B12, which helps our nervous system and brain health. When we are deficient in B12, it can lead to depression, mental disorders, loss of sense of smell and taste, and also cognitive decline, anemia, neuropathy in the hands and the feet, and cardiovascular issues. Other common deficiencies within the vitamin B-complex occur with vitamin B1, B2, and B6.

How do I get a healthy diet? How do I get these nutrients back into my system and why did I lose them in the first place? Things like poor soil, contamination in the soil and the water, and genetically-modified foods can play a role. When our bodies cannot absorb nutrients it’s called malabsorption. It can be caused by a genetic disposition, whereby the body doesn’t have enzymes to digest the nutrients, which can be caused by toxins in our environment. There can be issues with methylation from GMOs or glyphosate as they change the way our bodies process the product – the enzyme that helps methylation is lost.

There can also be issues with detoxification pathways and the imbalance within the digestion track itself can cause malabsorption. This can be expressed in our genes with lifestyle, diet, stress levels, exercise levels, hydration levels, and the quality of our supplements. The way our gut is balanced is very important, so we need good gut flora and microbiome.

You can discover your deficient levels with blood, saliva and urine tests. The benefit of Quantum Techniques is that you can find these deficiencies by self-testing or via a practitioner session, in addition to telling you how much of each nutrient that you need to have, and what was causing the deficiency in the first place. We can also check your system to find out if there’s a toxin causing a certain system to not function correctly and how to put it back on line.

Symptoms or red flags that may be letting you know that you are nutrient deficient include hair loss, ridges on your nails, dark circles under your eyes, skin rashes, persistent acne, periodontal disease, needing lots of dental work, sores inside your mouth, tingling sensations in your extremities, brain fog or other cognitive dysfunction such as memory loss, loss of sexual drive/libido, depression or lethargy, and ongoing fatigue.

It’s important that when you do use supplements that you choose those with the most benefit – you want to ensure that they don’t contain toxins, heavy metals or pesticides. Using QT can accomplish this important task very efficiently, to help you get the best value for your money.

About Jody King Colegrove

Life has it’s up’s and down’s; my life is no exception. After being married several years my husband and I discovered that we were having difficulty getting pregnant. I had always been the kind of person that when I put my mind to it I can achieve anything. My favorite quote was “If you can imagine it, you can achieve it; if you can dream it, you can become it”, by William Arthur Ward. With this issue I had hit a wall. We did the traditional medical treatments of In Utero Insemination (IUI) and In Vitro Fertilization (IVF). The egg would not attach to the uterine wall on the 26th day of my cycle because the receptor site had been turned off because of a previously used contraceptive. Not being able to get pregnant, what every other woman can do easily, really made me feel like I was not a women. I started pulling away from people and friends. We started working with Quantum Techniques to heal not only my body, but the trauma of going through all the procedures, the disappointment, and the emotional pain of wanting something so bad and not being able to make my body perform. After working with Steve Daniel and clearing the physical and non physical issues, I got pregnant five months later. This was such a profound healing in my life that I wanted to share Quantum Techniques with others, so I became a practitioner. I have worked with people regarding Anxiety, Headaches/ Migraines, ADD/ADHD, Autism, Weight loss, Addictions, Fungal infections, Depression, Insomnia, Thyroid problems, Broken bones, Warts, Skin issues, Allergies and Sensitivities, Babies and Animals, Dental issues, Sexual Abuse, Environmental Illness, Hormone Imbalance, Phobias/Fears, ect., just to name a few. I found Quantum Techniques to be extremely helpful in raising my son. Whether it was breast feeding, colic, getting him to sleep through the night, bed wetting, potty training, and food sensitivities, Quantum Techniques has helped every step of the way. Several years ago, I broke my leg skiing. I went through two surgeries; one to set the leg and one to remove scar tissue. I spent 5 months in physical therapy. During this time, I used Quantum Techniques to increase the speed of healing my leg and to reduce the pain and inflammation during recovery. I also needed to heal the emotional pain of not being able to walk for 3 months and to live life the way I was used to living it with movement and vitality. I had a great surgeon repair my broken leg. It was wonderful to also have the power of Quantum Techniques to ease my pain and maximize my body’s natural healing abilities. I have a Bachelors of Science degree in Business Administration with a minor in Architecture from Pacific Union College in California. I live in Flagstaff, Arizona with my husband, Don, son, Avery, and Golden Retriever, Copper. I love traveling, learning, exercising, and gardening. Before joining the Quantum Techniques team I worked as a Real Estate Agent, Property Manager, and most recently as the Owner of a company building high end custom homes. I have Massage training, which includes Reflexology, Asian Medicine, Nutrition, and Herbology. I have training in Dona Eden’s Energy methods, Life Skills by Ron and Nancy Rockey, Laurel Melin’s Emotional Brain Training (EBT or Solutions), Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) by Gary Crag, Mark Hyman’s Ultra Mind Solution, and Guy Finley’s teachings. I teach people how to take care of their health and happiness. As we live life we encounter toxins and traumas in our life. These affect our health and keep us trapped in life repeating the same stress or lesson until we learn how to get out of the loop. I would love to share with you how Quantum Techniques can impact your life so you can get back your health and happiness.
