The Nutrition Doctor specializes in detecting the root cause of disease through advanced biochemical testing and infrared scanning. This enables us to prevent disease before symptoms manifest and also to supertune your body's performance, so you feel and look great in the skin you are in. We like to consider it a superhero checkup - cos who doesn't want to be batman. We treat following issues: Allergies + Cancer + Diabetes + Eating disorders + Heart disease + Men's health + Women's hormones and Fertility + Weight and Metabolism disorders.
Grab a tea or espresso and Christina Santini will be right out to get you.
Some of you know that I do thermography scans in addition to advanced laboratory testing in my practice. A thermography - also known as infrared scan - is able to detect disease before they manifest. Thermography is much more accurate than i.e. mammography and ultrasound, simply because it is able to see the onset of tissue changes before a solid tumor can be seen with mammography. When we already have solid tumors, there have been often 5-10 years of tissues changes going on. It is a much more difficult path to treat disease in the late stages than in the early stages. We can prevent disease if we detect the first imbalances early.
There is a lot of confusion these days about vitamin D. Some advice on extreme levels while others advice just a pinch more than where we see bones falling apart. As with most things the real answer is found in the middle - oh man, no not the middle - the middle is so boring, you might say, but hey, that is only cos you are a dopamine addict like the rest of us hanging on to our phones like heroin addicts. Yeah enough of that. Sustainability is often found in the middle ground and so it is here as well. On one side we have the totally outdated advice of just making sure we are over approximately 50 nmol/L (20 ng/mL). This advice is setting the bar so low that we are just not developing obvious symptoms of vitamin D deficiency like osteoporosis.
One of my biggest pet-peeves is genetically modified crops. Not only is it incredibly bad for our health as is proven in independent studies time and time again, but it has far more dangerous consequences for us at a global as well as individual level.
A new study confirms what many of us already know: that our emotional health overrides whatever we put in our mouth. Stress activates a cascade of toxic biochemical processes in our body, some leading to heart disease, others diabetes and often resulting in weight gain especially around the stomach. Yup, that's right. A telltale sign of stress and not handling it too well is, if we gain weight around our midsection.
Last year I wrote an article about the most powerful vitamins developed. You might have heard of them. They are liposomal vitamins. These types of vitamins are designed to be absorbed and I personally prefer these over IV vitamin injections, simple because they can enter into the tissue, whereas IV injections still mainly stay in the blood stream, making it more relevant treatment for acute infections rather than ongoing anti-aging benefits. We want the vitamin value to go up INSIDE the cells, not merely outside.
I have been monitoring the effects on lab testing throughout the past year. There is no comparison to regular supplements.You can read the full article I wrote about these vitamins (in Danish) right here. This was my most popular article of 2017. An English version that I wrote about same subject, explaining some of the amazing benefits of liposomal vitamins will be going out in VitaViva's newsletter later this month - sign up for their newsletter if you want to read it.
Often when we think of someone suffering from lung cancer, we think about a chain smoker. However, smoking is only one of the risks. Lung cancer is an incredibly aggressive disease and as we only need to breathe in certain toxins for us to be at risk, it is nice to know what we might want to think of avoiding to stay safe.
One of the most typical things I see on the lab testing I do is mitochondrial dysfunction. Now if your last biology class was decades ago, this might seem a bit iffy to you. So here is the deal on our mitochondria in short: our mitochondria power the biochemical reactions in our cells.When our mitochondria are not functioning at their peak, we feel tired, lethargic and age quicker.
Did you know that our bones act as appetite-mediators? Yes, we have heard that eating dairy and calcium seems to help weight-loss, but why is that exactly? Well part of the reason is now clear: our bones send messengers that cross the blood-brain barrier to let the brain know that sufficient nutrients have been absorbed to keep the bone-building process going.
