What is biochemical imbalance?

Our body is functioning due to biochemical factors that influence our personalities, behaviors, mental health, immune function, and allergic tendencies. It is a finely tuned mechanism that relies on chemical components to maintain a constant state of balance. This state of balance is called homeostasis. If one or more of these chemical substances fall out of balance from either an increase or a decrease in their levels, this may cause illness or dysfunction in physical and mental health.

Chemical imbalances can occur for a number of reasons and may affect the body in a variety of ways. There are more than 60 chemical elements in our bodies, and each plays a role in the expression of our genes.  More than 95% of our bodies are made up of four elements: oxygen, carbon, hydrogen and nitrogen. The remaining 5 percent are either macronutrients or micronutrients that are required for the proper production of hormones, neurotransmitters and immune function. Macronutrients like calcium, magnesium, and potassium are needed in large amounts for normal body function. Micronutrients like vitamins and trace minerals, are needed in smaller amounts. These nutrients perform various functions, including the building of bones and cell structures, regulating the body’s pH, carrying charge, and driving chemical reactions.

Our biochemical imbalances can be affected by diet and stressful life events, but it often goes back to genetics and epigenetics.  Even brain function and thoughts are the result of biochemical reactions. For it must be remembered that the brain is, in a sense, a biochemical factory.   All these chemicals, working together in very complex ways, produce our thoughts and feelings. So, if you’re having serious problems with abnormal thoughts and feelings, a part of the reason could be related to the biochemistry of the brain. 

How do we treat biochemical imbalance

At recore we do specific biochemical laboratory testing to determine an individual’s biochemical imbalance. Combining the results of the lab tests with anamnestic informations and clinical tests we prescribe an individualized and compounded vitamin, mineral, nutrient protocol to help our patients recover from various disease states.

Our physical and mental health needs the proper balance of critical brain chemicals. This is why correcting biochemical imbalances is key to optimal health and wellness. We start with an individual composed healthy diet combined with regular exercise . Then we use amino acids, and certain vitamins and minerals to correct biochemical imbalances. As an example: the very makeup of brain cells also depends on nutrients—omega-3s are part of every cell membrane. B vitamins are critical for preventing other maladies, including heart disease, cancer, and Alzheimer’s To be able to do that the team of recore is assembled from highly educated specialist in nutrition and orthomolecular medicine and the executing chef in the kitchen will be able to prepare individual composed meals in cooperation with the team.
