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.
I can’t stand the word detox frankly. Yet I use it more than any other word in my practice these days. It is one of the core things I do today, because the lab testing I do is repeatedly showing that most issues you guys are coming in with are due to blockages in the system due to various accumulated toxins. Most symptoms can be traced back to different toxins that are interfering with the body’s ability to function and repair normally. Sidenote: For those of you who were at my talk in Øksnehallen in Copenhagen Sunday 30th of September I am attaching handouts for the talk as promised - click here to download the notes (DANISH only).
With cosmetic enhancements becoming the norm rather than the exception, it is discombobulating to discover, that many of these procedures are a disaster for our health in the long run. The problem is that breast implants, botox injections, restylane etc. are performed these days at a very young age, and they are filled with harmful chemicals and neurotoxic substances. Many kids in highschool think that it is just as acceptable to get a boob job as it is to ask for a car for their birthday. And then there are those of us, who paid for our own car back in the day. Yeah I still can't believe no-one wrapped a Maserati under the Christmas tree, but hey rough life buttercup. Anyway, we are only now starting to see the tip of the iceberg of how these procedures play out after a decade - and the news is not good. It is very, very bad.
The problem with removing a sick organ as done with the all-too common practices of removing tonsils, thyroid, gallbladder etc. is that the body NEEDS these organs for a purpose. The solution is not to remove the damaged organs, but identify the cause of why these organs are burdened - if there are toxins in the body damaging an organ, they will continue to damage the body, regardless of moving the primary damaged organ. The problem is NEVER the organ, it is what is CAUSING disease in it. It is rather logical isn't it. Pretty ironic that we need decades of so-called scientific studies to confirm something which anyone with a modicum of common sense understands.
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.
