Functional Blood Analysis

We are excited to introduce a breakthrough in the area of nutrition and diet: FUNCTIONAL NUTRITIONAL BLOOD WORK ANALYSIS.

Our office now provides comprehensive functional blood-nutrition interpretation.  Even if you have been told that your blood work is "normal," our computerized, state-of-the-art interpretation system can reveal hidden nutritional problems.  Personalized nutritional supplementation in addition to dietary plans with recipes can then be recommended with our Functional Blood Analysis technology.  As a Certified Functional Bloodwork Analyzer, we can customize your wellness plans in conjunction with your precise nutritional needs and not just some "out of the box nutritional plan". 

Functional Nutritional Blood Analysis vs. Routine Medical Interpretation

Medical Blood Interpretation

This type of interpretation is the most common and involves the doctor ordering blood work and examining which blood results, if any, fall outside of the normal ranges.  Traditional medical interpretation of blood work is disease-oriented and seeks to identify obvious abnormalities to diagnose disease conditions.

This means that doctors who have extensive training in diagnosing obvious diseases will examine blood work for the most extreme abnormalities that fall outside of the accepted normal ranges given on a blood test.  For example, a normal cholesterol range is less than 200.  If your cholesterol level is 199, you may be told that your blood work is normal, and by strict definition it is normal (meaning average…but not necessarily healthy or desirable.)

There are two main problems with strict medical blood work interpretation. First is the fact that strict medical interpretation does not identify a problem until it there is a full-blown abnormality. Many people, if not most, have persistent chronic conditions or symptoms yet they have been told that their blood work is normal.  This is because the blood work that was performed was either not detailed enough and/or it has been viewed only from a disease perspective and not from a preventative or early detection perspective. 

Second is the fact that the standard medical blood laboratory ranges, (high and low values,) are essentially based on a sampling of three population groups:  blood donors, employees of corporations and hospital personnel. These “normal”  ranges represent the average unhealthy American, not ideal ranges that represent healthly individuals.  For example, you may lose between 40%-80% of your kidney function before kidney tests may reveal that there is an abnormality.  Similarly, approximately 40% of thyroid function may be lost before blood tests identify that an abnormality exists.  

Functional Nutritional Blood Interpretation

This method of blood work interpretation uses narrower ranges of clinical blood values that represent the values found in healthier individuals.  For example, evidence suggests that cholesterol levels between 160 and 180 are more ideal than 0-200.  These tighter ranges are referred to as healthy or functional ranges.  When considered along with other information such as medical history and other testing, these ranges often allow us to find problems not apparent when looking at disease ranges (traditional blood values). Think of it this way, if one wants to see “something coming” then using values that are tighter on the low and the high ranges would reveal abnormalities long before they would appear when compared to blood ranges that are very wide on the high and low side.

Because our goal is to help predict and prevent health problems, we perform nutritional blood interpretation in addition to medical interpretation of each patient’s blood work. In conjunction with your health history and medical examination, nutritional interpretation of blood work is important for determining the most appropriate nutritional recommendations.  If one wishes to find answers to chronic problems or implement a true wellness plan then one must considering asking different questions!
