Omega-3 Testing. Know if you’re getting enough

Inflammation is the body’s natural and healthy response to injury or threat.  It’s only meant to be a short-term response to remove the pain or inflammation.   Why do half of Australians now live with chronic dis-ease and chronic pain; and why do so many of us reach for fish oils (EPA and DHA) to support this process?  A survey of 12,000 Australians found 80% were not meeting recommended daily intakes for omega-3 fatty acids!

Nurtura Health now offers a revolutionary, simple, non-invasive finger prick test – the Omega-3 Index Blood Test.  So you will know if you’re getting enough omega-3’s.  Our Naturopaths can interpret the results and work with you on a treatment plan.

Mounting evidence indicates that fish oils – Omega-3 essential fatty acids – reduce health risks at all ages and stages of life, but the body can’t produce them on its own.  They must be obtained from diet or supplements.  Common foods that are high in omega-3 fatty acids include fatty fish, fish oils, flax seeds, chia seeds, flaxseed oil, and walnuts.  How do you know you’re getting enough, and does your body have the enzymes to convert your dietary or supplementary intake into healthy blood levels of omega-3 essential fats?

Each person has their own unique omega-3 needs. Nurtura Health clients can now test their Omega-3 Index to ensure they have healthy levels.  A level of between 8-12% is associated with better overall health.  What would you score?  Don’t guess what you can test!

Research has shown high strength, purified fish oil at therapeutic doses play a critical role in reducing the pain and inflammation of muscles and joints; supporting healthy heart function; cholesterol levels and reproductive health.

One study reported a significant improvement in brain function associated with attention, particularly in moods including anger, anxiety, fatigue and confusion.

In addition to combining EPA/DHA with other anti-inflammatory nutrients, Nurtura Health can now offer a specific and targeted approach to chronic inflammation with Specialised Pro-Resolving Mediators (SPMs) in a capsule form.

These unique SPM’s support resolution at the site of inflammation to assist tissue repair, healing, recovery and the return to a normal state without suppressing

immune function.  A broad application for SPM’s is evident in the emerging preliminary research involving allergies; periodontitis associated bone loss; endometriosis; psoriatic dermatitis; wound healing; cancer; Sjogren’s syndrome; atherosclerosis; and inflammatory bowel dis-ease.

This revolutionary product provides an inflammatory-specific solution that is practitioner-only and available only by prescription.  Have your Omega-3 levels tested now at Nurtura Health
