Your blood never lies
Blood has a lot to tell us about our state of health and the blood chemistry and CBC / haematology test is the most commonly ordered medical lab test worldwide. These blood tests are an integral part of Western clinical medicine and are used to aid in the diagnostic decision-making process.
However, many, many people start to feel unwell long before a traditional blood test becomes diagnostic and more often than not, patients are told by their doctor that “everything on your blood test looks normal.”
"Normal" is not optimal
Clinical experience suggests that many people are by no means “normal” and are a far cry from being functionally optimal. They may not yet have progressed to a known disease state, but they are what we call dys- functional, i.e. their physiological systems are no longer functioning properly, and they are starting to feel un-well.
The issue is not that the blood test is a poor diagnostic tool, far from it. The issue is that the ranges used on a traditional lab test are based on statistics and not on whether a certain value represents good health or optimal physiological function. The problem is that “normal” reference ranges usually represent “average” populations rather that the optimal level required to maintain good health. Most “normal” ranges are too broad to adequately detect health problems before they become pathology and are not useful for detecting the emergence of dysfunction.
The thing that separates the Functional Blood Chemistry Analysis from the Traditional approach is that it does not simply looking at one individual biomarker at a time in a linear report of the data. Rather, it uses trend analysis between the individual biomarkers to establish a client’s otherwise hidden trend towards or away from a functional health optimal. This is what we call preventative medicine.
THE FUNCTIONAL HEALTH REPORT
FUNCTIONAL DX USES SOPHISTICATED MEDICAL SCIENCE TO EXAMINE 13 BODY SYSTEMS CLOSELY ASSOCIATED WITH PHYSICAL PERFORMANCE - as well as monitoring those aspects of functional health most affected by underlying health conditions.
A straightforward, user friendly reporting system gives you an accurate picture of how well your body is functioning. Developed on science-based knowledge and clinical experience, this test allows for detailed study of your blood chemistry.
Through proprietary algorithms, the lab analyses the component part of your blood to answer straightforward and important questions about your organs and systems performing at their optimal best, and if not, how far from optimal are they ?
Blood testing is no longer simply a part of disease or injury management. It’s a vital component of a comprehensive Functional Medicine work up and plays a vital role in uncovering hidden health trends, comprehensive health promotion and disease prevention.
Whilst doctors often do blood tests, they can miss particular biomarkers that enable us to understand the root cause of the problem.
