Vitamin and Mineral Supplementation
Nutritional supplements have been proved to enhance dietary nutritional intake. Is diet more important than foods? No, but both foods and nutritional supplements are required, especially in both acute and chronic health problems, (diseases) to meet or exceed the basic nutritional requirements to promote healing.
Are you taking the best nutritional supplements? Dr. Wald says, “the best nutritional products that you can consume should be based upon your health problem(s), the medications that you may be taking, your metabolic rate, how well you absorb - and other factors, including whether or not your nutritional products are pharmaceutical grade or not (and they almost never are).
Dr. Michael Wald, the Blooddetective, can help you get it right and you do not have to buy his nutritional products if you choose not to! “The supplements that I could produce cheaper and better I did, but no one company can possibly have all of the best products that a particular person could need.
Blood testing, questionnaires and conversation is the Blooddetective recipe for health building naturally.
Foods vs. Supplements
Either one or both!
Dr. Wald is the author of over 10 books and the host of a weekly radio show on PRNFM.com called, Ask The BlooDDetective. Dr. Michael Wald most popular book is the Anti-Aging Encyclopedia of Nutritional Tests. This 500-page textbook on blood work and nutrition make the overwhelming case that YES in fact almost all of us require nutrition above and beyond even the most healthy of diets. But how do you know what nutritional supplements you need to stay well, treat disease and age as well as possible? Dr. Wald has answers - and as the BlooDDetective, he has some unique ways in which to determine how much of what nutritional supplements are best and when.
Here is what Dr. Wald recommends as the primary ways to get it right!
Dr. Wald literally invented the Blood Logic System - this is a computer program that he has developed over the course of more than 10 years to help find out what nutritional supplements and foods you may need to get and stay well. Here is what this software helps Dr. Wald to do for your health concerns…
Even the most organically grown foods are depleted in nutrition…nutritional supplementation helps close the gap.

Your regular blood work, even the so-called normal tests, are used to compare to what Dr. Wald calls “healthier” or “functional” blood ranges. The blood ranges of tests like glucose, cholesterol and BUN are comparing you to men or women in your age bracket…not healthy people in your age bracket and sex.
If your blood work is essentially normal, like so many of Dr. Wald’s patients tell him other doctors said, then Dr. Wald compares you to a healthier standard - this allows information about your nutritional and health needs that might otherwise go unnoticed.
Dr. Wald also takes a detailed health history of your concerns - often revealing even more about your nutritional needs.
Traditional medicine has only remedial training in nutrition and is trained in only the RDA (minimal) governmental requirements of various nutrients to prevent nutritional deficiency. Dr. Wald also uses additional tools to determine how you should eat and what nutritional supplements to take. These include:
Careful health history and review of symptoms and signs
By using many focused health-nutritional questionnaires
Visual inspection that helps provide additional and potentially supportive information regarding nutritional issues.
For example, dry skin, constipation and bumps on the back of your arms often means that you have a low thyroid and an increased need for omega 3 fatty acids.
Balding in men and an enlarged prostate with high cholesterol also means an increased need for omega 3 fatty acids, biotin and magnesium.
Overweight in women with large hips as opposed to belly often means increased risk of ovarian cancer and a large number of nutritional compounds associated with this potential health problems.
We often use dozens of different nutritional markers, standard and advanced laboratory testing and other non-blood technologies to help "put all of the pieces together"
Ongoing research using the National Library of Medicine and the Cochrane Database
Years of clinical experience, nearly 30-years at the time of this writing along with extensive education and commitment to helping people get well is what sets Dr. Wald apart from the rest!
