We provide high quality vitamins and supplements from Metagenics that are only available thru health care professionals. Metagenics devotes the time and personnel to verify ingredient safety, ensure proper ingredient form/identity, and then test for purity and quality at multiple steps.
Cutting corners can have long-reaching health effects. Especially if a product contains the wrong ingredient form or potentially harmful contaminants. Or if the active ingredients aren’t absorbed properly. Metagenics starts with a formula designed with sound research and carefully monitors every stage of production to deliver a finished product that lives up to its scientific promise.
The result? A higher level of purity, safety, and quality for reliably effective use. In fact, Metagenics is one of the first companies in the industry to achieve three independent certifications for Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) by world-leading arbiters. In many areas, Metagenics exceed these requirements with additional in house testing and third-party assays by respected independent laboratories.

Did you know…
Did you know that many people make goals of becoming healthier, but few follow through to get results? It is evident in the obesity epidemic plaguing the adults and youth of America. According to the Harvard School of Public Health, fewer than 15 percent of Americans were obese in 1990. Today, more than double – approximately 1 in 3 – are obese, and the numbers continue to climb.
Frequently Asked Questions
I’m not overweight. Do I need lifestyle and nutritional counseling?
There is always room for improvement. The truth is that even people with ‘healthy’ weights can be considered unhealthy. Foods marketed as low-calorie and sugar-free, for example, may be harboring harmful chemicals that are making you more toxic. Or perhaps you work-out regularly, but were unaware that yoga and meditation could help reduce your chronic anxiety. So even if you know a lot about living a healthy life, remember that it is sometimes the things you don’t know that could be hurting you most.
How can Vail and Tucson lifestyle and nutritional counseling help me?
Lifestyle and nutritional counseling in Vail and Tucson is not an attempt at rapid weight loss or successful dieting. Instead, it is designed to facilitate changes that can be sustained for life. Our program can help you:
- Set realistic health goals
- Achieve and maintain your ideal weight
- Maximize your energy levels
- Fight back against cravings
- Understand nutrition and the types of foods that help/harm your body
- Manage your stress
What types of changes will I need to make to see improvements in my health?
Per the name, lifestyle counseling will target your health and wellbeing in every area of life. When one area is out of balance, every area suffers. The changes you will need to make will be specific to your situation. However, we always encourage changes that mean better sleep, less stress, healthier nutrition, and a stronger mind-body connection.
The gastro-intestinal system is a complex set of organs responsible for digestion, nutritional absorption, and waste elimination. Symptoms of gastro-intestinal disease or inflammation are hard to miss. Many people in Vail and Tucson suffer with chronic constipation, diarrhea and abdominal cramping, yet they are unaware of the cause for their discomfort. Unfortunately, there is a direct correlation between GI health and the body’s immune system. When the ‘gut’ is not well, neither is the rest of the body.
Did you know…
that an estimated 1 in 5 Americans has an inflamed, diseased, or imbalanced gastro-intestinal system? Many turn to over-the-counter medications that alleviate symptoms without addressing the underlying problem. In some cases, digestive issues become so severe, that they develop into serious diseases like inflammatory bowel disease, peptic ulcer disease, pancreatitis, and acid reflux.
Frequently Asked Questions
How do I know if I might have a GI problem?
You may benefit from a gastro-intestinal health program in Vail and Tucson if you:
- Feel sluggish
- Have frequent fatigue
- Have bowel movements less than once per day
- Have irregular bowel movements
- Experience discomfort or bloating after eating
- Have been diagnosed with a gastro-intestinal disease
- Experience heartburn or indigestion
Even if you do not have these symptoms, a GI health analysis may be right for you. Often, complications of the gastro-intestinal system lead to symptoms in other areas of the body, such as skin rashes and anxiety disorders.
Why take a holistic approach to GI health instead of use medications to find relief?
Even if you find your symptoms to be ‘manageable’, unusual GI systems are a sign that your body is not as healthy as it could be. Holistic medicine treats you as a whole, not a set of symptoms. We get to the bottom of your GI problems, whether it is toxicity, food intolerance, allergic reactions, or chronic infection. By eliminating the source of the problem, we can prevent GI issues from worsening or developing into a more serious problem, such as an auto-immune disease.
What should I expect from your Vail and Tucson gastro-intestinal health program?
Our GI program is unlike the treatment options available from traditional practitioners. We work to locate the source of our patients’ GI issues, whether it is dietary, environmental, or some other related cause. We then establish a plan for removing GI toxins from each patient’s diet and managing food sensitivities, such as gluten or dairy intolerance. Finally, we incorporate natural healing techniques that help lower inflammation, boost immunity, and allow the body to make a full recovery.
