Lifestyle Analysis

Like the musicians who make up an orchestra, the body systems--digestive, intestinal, circulatory, nervous, immune, respiratory, urinary, glandular and structural--must all work in harmony to be fully functional. When a concern in one body system arises, other systems are affected. Total health is only possible when all body systems are working together like a well-crafted symphony.

Taking personal responsibility for your own health is the first and most important step in ensuring a healthy lifestyle. Consultation and education are key factors in determining the direction your health will take. Since approximately 1935, health professionals have known that America's soil is so depleted of nutritional elements that it is virtually impossible to obtain all the body's nutritional requirements through diet alone without additional supplementation. Fewer than three percent of Americans consume the recommended daily allowance of nutrients. Even 60 percent of nutrition professionals supplement their diet every day to make up for nutritional shortfalls.

Answer all of the questions below to determine your rating for each of the nine major body systems. Most answers will affect more than just one system. When you're finished, you can find out more information about the areas you show weaknesses in, and learn about some Nature's Sunshine Products formulated to help you.

Please Note: Absolutely no record of your responses is kept. This lifestyle analysis is for your benefit only.
