Vitamins, Minerals, Amino Acids and Fatty Acids Are What’s Missing
The root to all disease can be traced back to a nutrient deficiency.
It’s when a nutrient deficiency is left to run amok that you suffer terminal degenerative illnesses.
There are only 4 categories of nutrients that our body needs – vitamins, minerals, amino acids and fatty acids.
If you think you are eating a regular healthy diet but suffer from some dis-ease, then it’s time to take a health assessment. Time to look for a nutrient deficiency.
Your body may not be getting the adequate amount of nutrients that you think it should.
What Could Cause You To Be Nutrient Deficient
- It could be that your body is not adequately absorbing the nutrients from your food.
- It could be that the food you are eating do not contain enough nutrients in it.
- It could be that you are not combining the appropriate foods together to get the benefit of the nutrients out of the food.
- It could be that other biological factors are causing stress to the body which is inhibiting your body from assimilating the nutrients from your food into your body.
Our bodies signal us when we are deficient in any specific nutrient. The first place to start looking is in the foods we eat.
If you are experiencing any of these conditions, then you may be suffering from a nutrient deficiency.

When you identify which nutrients you are deficient in, then add those foods rich in that nutrient to your daily diet. Be sure to research if that nutrient needs to be combined with particular other nutrients in order for it to be absorbed by the body or extracted from the food.
