Are you feeling like your health is not optimal even though your blood work came back "normal"? What is "normal"? Lab ranges that are used to diagnose disease are based on bio markers that are determined by population averages. In other words, blood is drawn from a varied group of people and an average of these results are used to set the lab ranges. Our society, in general, is getting sicker and sicker and the use of prescription medications are increasing. This way of determining what is average blood work does not exclude people who are already diagnosed with a disease, people who are on medication or people who just plain don't feel healthy!
Functional medicine lab ranges are based on the averages from people who are not on medication and have not been diagnosed with a disease. These people feel healthy and have balanced energy and emotions. Do you want your blood compared to healthy energetic people or medicated unhealthy people? Your goal should be to have your blood work reﬂect optimal health ranges.
We are not sitting ducks just waiting to have a diagnosis given to us for why we don't feel good. Your body gives you messages long before a full blown disease manifests. Inﬂammation and the disease process ﬁrst appears as pain, low energy, mood disturbances, swelling, digestive issues, infertility, insomnia, etc. If you don't feel good and your doctor can not give you a reason based on your "normal" blood results then you want to investigate deeper. Functional ranges are used to assess risk for disease before it develops so that you can be proactive and make the necessary changes and stop the progression.
At Holistic Women And Families Natural Health Center, we practice disease prevention by early identiﬁcation and screening of imbalances in the body's metabolism. Huge changes in emotional and physical health can take place through nutrition, lifestyle and supplement recommendations. Don't continue to blame the way you feel on "aging" or think that feeling optimal isn't an attainable goal.
We order a comprehensive blood panel and analyze your results based on optimal functional lab ranges. We then take your symptoms and health issues and look at them within the framework of your blood results. From there we can make recommendations to get you feeling back to optimal and stop the disease process from manifesting.
