Prevention & Executive Health

  •  Ensure your health is on track 
  •  Reduce stress
  •  Maximize your productivity and energy

Effective prevention, control of stress, and a pro-active lifestyle are the keys to living a long, active and healthy life in today’s increasingly stressful and polluted world. This is not as hard as it sounds, and is a lot easier to achieve with various levels of metabolic testing.

Basic Metabolic Screening & Nutrition Analysis

  • Uncovers nutrition & lifestyle factors affecting most health problems 
  • Essential to achieving biochemical balance
  • Provides new information regarding anyone’s health — guaranteed

Paragon’s essential metabolic testing and analysis thoroughly examines and cross-references more than 125 biomarkers and other metabolic indicators.  It uncovers most problematic diet and lifestyle choices contributing to a wide range of health disorders.  From this overall analysis, effective targeted nutrition and/or other potentially necessary lifestyle modifications can usually be identified.

Symptoms regularly alleviated through this process include many food allergies, arrhythmias, osteo-arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, high blood pressure, adrenal & thyroid disorders, insomnia, migraines, back pain, muscle cramping, problematic infections, depression, moodiness, learning disorders, heavy metal poisoning.

Background for Patients and Physicians

Paragon’s high success in determining the cause of illness in most of its case studies shows: 

1) a detailed analysis of a person’s work place, social habits, exercise habits, dietary & supplementation habits, and Rx use is very helpful in determining the cause of most ailments.  

2) when this is used in conjunction with the analysis of precise measurement of intracellular tissue mineral balance, specific metabolic conditions related to personal health & behaviour and many disease states are predicted.   

This is because specific vitamins and minerals work together as co-enzyme factors that control the action of most enzymes in the body, which in turn affect genetic expression, metabolic activity, and health dependant on enzyme function.  

Dr. David L. Watts, Ph.D. was one of the first to recognize the critically important links between mineral balance, vitamin utilization, enzyme activity in the body, and health.  He further realized that the mineral balance in tissues, including hair tissue, is reflective of the overall mineral balance in the body.  To determine the specific affects of minerals on metabolism and disease, Watts worked with physicians to collect thousands of hair samples from patients with a wide range of confirmed medical diagnoses.  As expected, most patients with specific conditions had remarkably similar balances of minerals in their tissues.  This allowed his research team to determine and isolate metabolic activity, hormone function, emotional behaviour, learning capability, detoxification capability, and the existence or potential for disease states associated with specific balances of minerals & vitamins in the body.  HTMA also represents the best method to test for ongoing exposure to toxic heavy metals. 

HTMA is now done by many laboratories around the world.  However no other lab has the extensive clinical research to support its analysis of a patient’s test results.  The laboratory equipment and operating procedures are unparalleled and set the standard for the industry.   

Dr. Watts’ clinical research work on over 900,000 samples MDs collected from patients shows that returning cellular metabolism to normal requires the correction of mineral imbalances and elimination of toxins.  His clinical work represents a significant contribution to medicine, and Trace Elements testing is highly effective in helping to determine protocols to treat various degenerative conditions. 

Year-Round Monitoring of Metabolism & Performance

  • Develop & maintain a strong body and mind for the most demanding lifestyles
  • To maintain the highest level of productivity and stay there 

Key factors related to nutrition, exercise, control of stress, and sleep can limit the productivity of people in the most demanding environments.  Metabolic test results and testimonials from busy executives and others under pressure all show this.  

They show that the harder an individual works, concentrates, or stresses over issues, the greater the utilization of specific nutrients.  These nutrients must be replenished to maintain the high level of intensity or activity many people are faced with in their daily lives.  (Along with adequate quality sleep, and moderate exercise necessary to cleanse the body’s lymph system.)

The success of athletic, business, and medical clients using our metabolic testing and custom nutrition  programs demonstrates the mental and physical advantage possible when nutrient needs specific to that individuals test results are consumed during periods of intense activity (or healing).

A balanced intake of nutrients specific to an individual’s needs will help that person excel throughout the year when faced with a demanding schedule.  That balance intake is key to preventing illness, most irregular heart beats, high blood pressure, many types of avoidable muscle spasms, sleep disorders, and/or other stress-related problems. 

This is because specific combinations of nutrients are required to sustain rapid & confident thinking, immune system function, and muscle function and recovery.  And one person’s relative needs of each those nutrients will be specific to his or her eating habits and lifestyle. 

Paragon’s nutrient and metabolism monitoring programs allow clients to determine what those needs are and to remain healthy, relaxed, and productive under pressure.  On the other hand, it’s easy to identify individuals who start out working hard, but then run out of gas.  This can easily be prevented with simple nutrition and metabolic monitoring.   

Background for Researchers and Physicians

In 1987, Paragon began providing top world class amateur and professional athletes with year round consulting, nutrition monitoring, and planning of training programs to increase speed, strength, endurance, and the ability to perform under pressure.  

Those athlete’s record setting performances resulted in many requests from busy executives to help them get back on track and to perform at a high level.  

So, in 1992 Paragon began working with its first such clients (5 males, aged 35 - 39), and the results were surprising and unexpected.  Full medical profiles were done.  Among other issues, problematic irregular heart-beats and arrhythmias were revealed in 4 of 5 individuals, as well as one severe case of 25-30 planter warts on each foot, despite many previous doctor’s attempts to treat them.  Remarkably, in just 6 weeks the arrhythmias of 3 of the 4 clients disappeared, and within 3 months the one client’s warts had also disappeared.  These were the first of many surprising results ultimately seen in Paragon’s Medical Case Studies.  

Paragon’s year round monitoring of nutrition, metabolism, and performance provides any extremely busy individual with a significant advantage in dealing with stress because North America’s food supply is so problematic for higher performance, as it’s overly processed, depleted of minerals, and high in toxins.  

Because of this, any high performance individual: 

  • requires specific bioavailable supplements; 
  • should avoid many foods thought to be “healthy”; and  
  • should be monitored using simple key indicators (i.e. hair mineral levels, saliva and urine pH, stool color, morning resting heart rate, etc.) to ensure metabolism and regeneration are maximized.

Paragon pioneered the most advanced nutrition chemistry and metabolism testing programs for improving health and maximizing performance throughout the year.
