When I received the invite for BioBalance Insititute's "D"-coding, the first thing that came to mind was "There's actually a condition such as Vitamin D deficiency?" For us Filipinos that live in a tropical country, you would think that we are far from having insufficient sun exposure -- which we all know enhances the absorption of calcium, but a local research shows that 70% of Filipinos are actually low on the D. And for me, Vitamin D is one of those that I admit I have very limited knowledge on.
BioBalance Institute is the first ever established wellness center that focuses on this concept: balance the borderline deficiencies and subtle toxicities in nutrients, toxins, enzymes, hormones, cells, and other bioactive agents found in the body, also known as Health Optimization Medicine or HOMe. These "borderline deficiencies and subtle toxicities of nutrients" are first measured through comprehensive testing, then a bespoke food and supplement protocol is carefully crafted to return you to optimal nutrient balance. Each body has a unique nutrient and metabolic profile, so your optimal levels will be different from others. Increased energy, resistance to disease, and overall vitality are but a few of the benefits of being in optimal health.
