Blood tests are the most commonly ordered labs for health assessment worldwide. The normal range of your lab results is based on statistics and often represents the average for a (maybe more ill) population rather than the optimal level required to maintain the best health.
In other words, normal is not always optimal. The functional nutrition/medicine approach to labs:
- Uses more markers to gain a bigger picture of your health
- Recognizes hidden health trends
- Detects early stages of dysfunction that might be overlooked
- Considers your “story” along with lab results, leading to a personalized solution
This is an area where you may be at risk for disease before it develops – the place where you often find answers!
