Healthy At Home

Hi PureBalance Family,

I hope this newsletter finds you and your family well! During this pandemic and through this time of uncertainty, I would like you to know that I continue to be available to help you stay healthy and support you from home.

Our office is “opened” Monday, Tuesday and Thursday from 10 am – 3 pm and Friday from 9am-1pm to take your phone calls, schedule phone consultations/virtual/Zoom appointments and for curbside pick-up of supplements. For those who feel safer not leaving home right now, we also offer shipping for our products and test kits.

I don’t know about you, but during this pandemic I’ve gotten very familiar and quite fond of using Zoom to stay connected and have face to face interaction with friends and loved ones. It has also been very effective in my efforts to continue to treat patients virtually. On a recent Zoom call, a patient asked me what tests she could run while at home to support her health during this time, and I thought it would be great information to share with all of you! There are some non-invasive testing options using urine, saliva, blood and stool samples that can be done from the comfort of your own home. Here are a few that I recommend.


Non-Invasive At-Home Tests

DUTCH Complete Hormone Test

Are you experiencing insomnia, fatigue, anxiety, depression or even acne? These symptoms may be attributed to a hormonal imbalance. We offer a comprehensive hormone test for both women and men that can be done right from home. Through urine and saliva collection, sex hormones, adrenal hormones, melatonin and more are tested to identify a complete assessment of your hormonal health.

BiomeFX Gut Microbiome Analysis Test

Are you experiencing bloating, gas, abdominal cramping and/or heartburn? Your gut microbiome plays a very important role in healthy digestion and a healthy immune system. Recent evidence suggests that the gut microbiome is likely the master control center of overall human health. Through this simple stool test, highly accurate whole -genome analysis and user-friendly reporting is provided to help understand your gut microbiome and identify proper treatment options.

Food Zoomer Sensitivity Tests

There are many reasons that can be attributed to food sensitivities in our bodies, such as diet, environment, medical history etc. If you are experiencing gastrointestinal, skin, neurological, respiratory, autoimmune or joint pain related symptoms, they may be related to specific foods in your diet. Through a simple blood sample taken from home, there are a range of panels that can be done to help determine if the root cause of an issue is related to food sensitivity.

If you are interested in learning more about any of these at-home testing options, please call our office or email us to get started.

Immune Boosting Supplements

Dear PureBalance Community,

Like all of you, we are following the latest news and information surrounding the Coronavirus (COVID-19). With schools and restaurants closed, professional sports seasons put on hold, store shelves empty and conference and air travel being cancelled, we are all wanting the same goal-to stay healthy and safe during this unprecedented time.

We have made the decision to close our PureBalance office for the rest of March, but we will continue to receive your phone calls, emails and fulfill online orders.

Dr. Ingrid will also be available for virtual appointments. If you would like to schedule a virtual appointment, email [email protected] or call the office at 224-521-1212.

We know this situation can feel scary, and that you are likely a little overwhelmed with all of the news and updates. So, we thought it might be helpful to share a few immune boosting supplements we are using right now.

We've hand-picked a bundle of immune support formulas that can help the body naturally defend itself against an immune challenge. It is also very important to remember to continue to try and get adequate sleep, hydration, exercise and keep up a nutritious diet.


PB Immune Support Bundle

For the month of March, we will offer FREE SHIPPING ON ALL PRODUCTS while supplies last. Please call our office at 224-521-1212 to place an order.

Product Of The Month-MegaQuinone K2-7

MegaQuinone K2-7 is 10% off during the month of February when you use code heart10 at checkout! To purchase in our shop, GO HERE.

MegaQuinone is a high-dose, 100% soy-free formulation of natural vitamin K2 (MK-7) formulated for optimal bone, nerve, and heart health. This formula includes 320 mcg of vitamin K2 with vitamin K1 and chelated minerals for absorption.

Given the major health benefits, vitamin K2 is arguably the most important dietary supplement out there, primarily because it can’t be found in sufficient quantities in the average Western diet.

In the last 40 years, researchers have realized that vitamin K2 is responsible for activating, or carboxylating, vitamin K-dependent proteins (VKDPs), such as osteocalcin and matrix Gla-protein. When fully carboxylated, osteocalcin attracts calcium into the bones and teeth. Matrix Gla-protein (MGP) helps to prevent vascular calcification by pulling calcium out of soft tissues, including arteries and veins. Without a sufficient source of K2, both osteocalcin and MGP can remain partially uncarboxylated or completely uncarboxylated, allowing calcium to deposit in the blood vessels rather than the bone, where we need it the most.

Benefits of MegaQuinone K2-7

  • The only 320 mcg, natural vitamin MK-7 supplement on the market
  • Guaranteed stability
  • Solvent-free during production
  • Soy-Free, Dairy-Free, Gluten-Free and Non-GMO
