Researchers have found certain changes that take place in the body when a nutrient becomes deficient. By studying the "body language" or things that are SYMPTOMATIC - one can determine deficiencies of specific vitamins, minerals, protein, etc. Such analysis is often referred to as "nutritional symptomatology". It is a way of interpreting bodily signs to find underlying causes. It is especially helpful at detecting sub clinical conditions which do not show up on conventional laboratory tests.

Each of us is biochemically unique. Fingerprints, voices, outward appearances — all differ from person to person. Our nutritional needs differ also. No two bodies react to the same nutritional intake in exactly the same way. We all have different metabolism and so have different nutrient requirements. Some of the foods and supplements we take may be absorbed too quickly or too slowly. Some nutritional factors may be almost completely lacking in our systems. Some of them are already produced by our bodies in quantities large enough that we don't need more.

Nutritional symptomatology is a very reliable way of determining the nutritional status of the individual. It pinpoints nutritional inadequacies which can be corrected by changes in diet or food supplementation.

Another advantage of symptomatology is that you are encouraged to participate in your own health care. In answering the questions, you focus on many bodily symptoms that could have been taken for granted for a long time, without realizing that nutrition may be involved. It is a learning experience which can help you to monitor your own progress in the future.
