How to Help Vitamin and Mineral Deficiencies

Watch the Helping Vitamin and Mineral Deficiencies video

In today’s vodcast, I chat about how vitamin and mineral deficiencies can cause serious problems to our health. But the good news is that most of these deficiencies can be corrected by eating nutrient-dense foods and adding specific supplements if the deficiency is severe.

These conversational vodcasts are available to the Kitchen Pioneers who have joined my YouTube membership community—The Traditional Foods Kitchen Academy.

Addressing Our Vitamin and Mineral Deficiencies

It is surprising how so many illnesses might be linked to vitamin and mineral deficiencies. Neurological-related diseases can often be traced back to extreme nutritional deficiencies. Some of these deficiencies are out of our control since our genetic makeup may hinder our absorption of certain nutrients.

There are ways to improve our nutrient absorption and address our vitamin and mineral deficiencies:

  • The first part includes working with our doctors to find the right medications or treatments to help our particular conditions.
  • The second part often involves simply eating nutrient-dense foods that have been properly prepared.


I am not a doctor or medical professional. If you are not feeling well, please seek professional medical attention and medicine. And if you are thinking of supplementing your treatment with home remedies, be sure to talk to your medical professional about them. It’s important that you get the medicine and treatments you need to get back to good health.
