Nutrient-induced Relative Nutritional Deficiency
Obtaining optimal group results with nutrients requires training, many of the optimal decisions required are counterintuitive (the opposite of common sense).
Examine the interactions illustrated below. Each line represents a depletion, relative nutritional deficiency when on an optimal diet, which can be induced by improper administration of nutrients. Some of these nutrient applications are common. Doctors routinely induce nutrient associated with relative nutritional deficiency (depletion). For example, the giving of the naturally occurring aromatic amino acid L-dopa to patients without administration of the other nutrients required to prevent relative nutritional deficiency (depletion) from occurring. Administering L-dopa can induce:
- L-tyrosine depletion RND ™
- L-tryptophan depletion RND ™
- Depletion RND ™ of all seven thiols
- Serotonin depletion RND™
Figure 1, when administered properly there is no nutrient-induced depletion or nutrient-related side effects.
Relative nutritional deficiency ™ (RND ™) induced by L-dopa can induce new-onset disease-like RND symptoms ™ or side effects. The effects of L-dopa are no longer available when a serotonin-related RND ™ is great enough.
Problems and side effects are a red flag that repositioning of the nutrients is required. Learn to identify and manage nutrient-induced relative nutritional deficiency. ™ Obtaining optimal group results with nutrients requires training, many of the decisions required for optimal results are counterintuitive (the opposite of common sense).
Under FDA guidelines drugs require efficacy and safety studies while nutrients make structure-function claims based on science.
