Create Vibrant Health News April, 2015

How many times have you been told that your blood test results are “normal” but you still don’t feel well?

For 18 years I’ve been seeing clients who are struggling with one or more chronic health issues yet their doctor is saying: “According to your lab tests, there is nothing wrong with you”.

The problem is not with the physician or with you it is with the way health is measured through conventional interpretation of blood tests.  
You may have had blood work done, but your provider may have been focusing on the absence of disease instead of looking for patterns that could indicate metabolic imbalances. These imbalances will eventually lead to a disease state if not addressed from the perspective of prevention and can give a trained practitioner the clues needed to help you transform your health now.
For over a year I’ve been in communication with a colleague who has been developing a system to help practitioners analyze blood chemistry tests from a functional perspective. He has had great results with his clients. I am very excited to offer this service to both my local and distance clients.

For the past several months I have been using this revolutionary new system called the “Functional Blood Chemistry Analyzer Reporting System” to assess blood chemistry tests from a functional perspective. I am able to address a fuller range of metabolic imbalances for my clients,more quickly and with more certainty than ever before.

I hope you enjoy the information in the newsletter.

What Is The Difference Between Functional And Conventional Blood Chemistry Analysis?
Conventional blood chemistry analysis while considered the gold standard in today’s medical practice, centers solely on the diagnosis of disease. It is not very useful as an early detection system because it lacks the ability to identify any tendencies that could ultimately lead to disease later on.
Functional analysis is preventative in nature and utilizes a different set of laboratory ranges (set forth by the American Association for Clinical Chemistry). The goal is to identify patterns and tendencies within your blood so that pathology never manifests and disease is averted.
Additionally, functional analysis utilizes very comprehensive and detailed laboratory reports to establish the big picture of how well your body is functioning on all levels, allowing me to address any concerns through lifestyle modification, dietary recommendations, and supplement protocols.
Blood chemistry pattern analysis enables the clinician to pinpoint the primary imbalances with greater precision and clarity. In many respects, it removes a great deal of uncertainty because itquantifies physiological imbalances in terms of relationships, rather than just as individual “high or low” markers. The “high or low” version of blood chemistry interpretation can actually lead to very reductionist, linear and ineffective recommendations.
Take for example if a person’s total cholesterol is 350. The clinician who is only using the “high or low” version of blood chemistry analysis will say: “We need to get your cholesterol down. Take niacin. And if that doesn’t work, take fish oil 5X daily. And if that doesn’t work, try garlic. And if that doesn’t work, try the next latest cholesterol lowering supplement. And then if that doesn’t work, cut all of your fat and dietary cholesterol intake and become a vegan.”
What if your cholesterol being high is a result of higher levels of stress or toxicity that have to be addressed first? What if what is considered high cholesterol by mainstream medicine is in fact a healthy adaptation to one’s circumstances? What if you have nutrient deficiencies which are impacting your body’s ability to detoxify and that is driving up your cholesterol?
With a functional analysis of your blood chemistry we are looking at underlying causes of health issues not just which markers are out of range. We look at the the whole system and design an customized program to support optimal health.
The Functional Blood Chemistry    Analyzer® reporting system, reports on  the following physiological parameters:
  • Blood sugar handling
  • Cell hydration
  • Digestive markers
  • Liver-related markers
  • Adrenal status markers
  • Thyroid activity
  • Pituitary -related markers
  • Inflammatory activity
  • pH markers
  • Skeletal integrity
  • Renal function
  • 10 nutrient markers
  • Immune response

And more…..

Steps to take to get a functional blood chemistry analysis:
  • Get a copy of your latest standard blood test to my office by email or mail which includes: comprehensive metabolic panel, CBC and lipid panel. Call my office if you don’t know if the information in your test is sufficient to run a functional analysis report. The test results has to be within the past 3 months.
  • If  you don’t have a recent blood test I can arrange a blood draw for you through a nation-wide lab I am using which has locations throughout the United States and Canada at very reasonable fees.  I am providing this service to both my local clients in Southern Oregon and my distance clients from all parts of the country.
  • Depending on your health issues we may want to have some additional tests added to your lab order including a thyroid panel, vitamin D levels, C- reactive protein, homocysteine, folate and others. We can customize the lab tests for the health issues you are facing.
  • Once I receive your blood test results  I enter the raw data into the functional blood chemistry analysis software and we generate a report to review for our consultation. Consultations can be in person, by phone or skype.

For the month of April I am offering a special on my functional blood chemistry analysis service of $189* (normally $229). This includes a personalized 45-50 page report as in the above sample and an hour consultation. 
Call my office at 541.482.2250 if you have any questions or would like to schedule a session.

*does not include lab fee if you do not have a recent blood test (within 3 months)
Functional blood chemistry analysis is transforming the way holistic practitioners can use blood chemistry tests in helping their clients resolve long standing health issues and optimize their health. I am very excited to offer this new service and welcome feedback and comments.

Wishing you a healthy and happy spring season,
