Nutritional and mineral deficiencies have a direct impact on health, athletic performance and injuries.   Deficiencies accelerate the aging process and decrease athletic performance by slowing and breaking down various biological systems.  For example a B6 deficiency, common in female athletes, affects digestion of fats, energy levels, nervous system function and gall bladder health, often resulting in weight gain around the torso.  Athletes with digestive problems typically also have immune stress because 70 percent of the immune system is in the gut.  Immune stress leads to allergies which slow an athlete down.  Simply correcting the digestive imbalance will restore the body back to great health.

Live Well works with high performance and recreational athletes of all ages to help them achieve optimal athletic performance through nutrition and detoxification.  We identify the nutritional or detoxification nutrients needed to help you attain your  health and performance goals.  Our programs will maximize your:

  • Strength   
  • Vision
  • Mental Clarity
  • Quickness 
  • Reaction
  • Endurance 
  • Power
  • Energy 

Minerals are the foundation of great health and athletic performance.  You can test and monitor your mineral balance with a simple pH urine test.  This is the first step to maximizing health and performance.

Over 95 percent of all athletes we work with are mineral deficient and have some other nutritional deficiency.  Minerals are essential for bone, muscle, joint and neurological function and an alkaline environment.  Minerals provide the electric charge to activate muscle and nerve cells.  They also provide the biochemical environment for cellular health and oxygen availability to produce  adenosine triphosphate, ATP. ATP is the cellular energy essential for attaining peak performance.

Symptoms of chronic mineral deficiencies include:

  • Muscle aches
  • Joint instability
  • Bone loss/spurs
  • Arthritis
  • Fatigue
  • Muscular/skeletal injuries
  • Dental problems
  • Cataracts
  • Atherosclerosis

Minerals must be present for red blood cells to deliver oxygen to the cell for aerobic respiration to take place.  In aerobic respiration, oxygen is used to break down glucose which is the energy source needed for endurance athletes like tennis players.  If oxygen is not present, the cell cannot maximize cellular energy output. This is measured by ATP output.  In anaerobic glycolysis (without oxygen) 2 ATP per glucose molecule are produced; in aerobic respiration (with oxygen) 32 ATP per glucose are produced.  Without ATP you are out of gas.

Max Minerals = Max Energy = Max Performance = Max Health  

Optimal athletic performance, great health and injury prevention are achieved by restoring coherence to the body with nutrition, detoxification, and other energy therapies.  Our wellness professionals are trained to find the root cause of imbalances and correct them with detoxification and nutrition products tailor made for your specific needs.  Contact us today to schedule your personal or phone consultation and begin to learn exactly what your body needs for radiant health, wellness and athletic performance.  Call us at 703-929-6855 or email: info@livewellva.net.
