Your Personal Nutritional Health Analysis
Functional Medicine /
Starting with a consultation, we will determine the testing that should be done. Using a full range blood test, a hair sample, and other diagnostic tools, an in-depth analysis of your body function will be performed. The testing will show where the problem areas are occurring in your body or newly developing health problems.
Your detailed report will explain your test findings, as well as the nutrient and dietary recommendations based upon your test results. Dr. Scotting will schedule a specific time to fully discuss the test results with you, answering any questions, and explain the best course of action for getting your unique body back to optimal health.
We take the time to analyze your body's health, inside and out.
Your complete health analysis begins with a blood test, helping us to discover a part of the current chemistry of your body. It helps us to determine what minerals or vitamins you might be lacking, and what deficiencies or chemical interactions in your body might be leading to specific areas of concern.
Much like your blood panel, the hair sample tests reveal the presence of an array of important minerals, heavy metals, and vitamins within your body's makeup. This test reveals if you might be experiencing a lack of any vital minerals, or perhaps any unwanted collection of toxic metals within your system.
Your day to day routines concerning diet and exercise play a major role in your body's chemistry, your current state of health, and longevity. We will talk about your lifestyle routines and how some minor (or perhaps major) changes could make a huge positive impact on your daily vitality and overall health.
'Normal' vs 'Healthy' Range
Most blood tests are compared to "Normal Ranges" via your results report. If you are within the "Normal Range" you will most likely be told you are normal, which can be confused with being healthy. It does not necessarily mean you are healthy, as many people incorrectly believe. Why not? The problem lies in how Normal Ranges are determined.
Normal Ranges are determined by taking approximately 100 to 200 people who tested recently with a particular lab (yes, they are determined by each individual lab and not a centralized agency). These results are then averaged – this is the middle of the Normal Range. The high and low sides of the Normal Range will be two standard deviations from the average.
Unfortunately, most of the people’s results used in these calculations are flawed because they were having blood tests run in the first place because they already had a health problem! "normal" is not good enough! Normal blood test scores simply mean you are not yet as sick as the other people used to determine the normal range.
