You Can Prevent Degenerative Conditions with Functional Blood Chemistry Analysis
Recently I reviewed the blood chemistry report for a client who had been complaining of chronic pain, fatigue, numbness and tingling in her extremities. She had been to many practitioners with no improvement. Amazingly, none of her doctors ran a simple blood test for her.
What we found was astonishing. My client’s blood glucose level was 384. A healthy blood glucose level should be 65-90. My client’s blood analysis showed that she was diabetic and didn’t know it!
Fortunately, over the years I’ve worked with many people who were either pre-diabetic or full blown diabetic. I have been able to help them re-establish healthy blood glucose levels which restored them to good health.
Having your blood tested at least 2-3 times per year is extremely helpful in preventing conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, cancer, neuro-degenerative conditions, arthritis and, for that matter, all degenerative health conditions.
For four years I have been using a functional analysis of blood chemistry to provide more accurate and helpful information to myself and my clients in addressing their health concerns. This is truly the best way to identify imbalances in one’s biochemistry BEFORE they turn into serious health concerns.
I can order a simple and inexpensive blood chemistry test for you, or you can ask your health care provider to order one. I have provided a detailed description of how to obtain a functional blood chemistry analysis in the section below. In addition, I have provided detailed information on the benefits of this amazing test, as compared to standard conventional blood tests.
More and more people are not feeling as well as they would like. Unfortunately, many people are not getting adequate testing and support from their health care providers. If you are truly interested in the kind of health insurance that provides clear answers to your health concerns, please contact me to order a functional blood chemistry analysis today!
Through the month of September I am offering a special on my functional blood chemistry analysis service of $200 (normally $250).
This includes a personalized 45-50 page report and a one hour consultation with me to review the results. Together, we can develop a wellness plan specifically designed for YOU.

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. For more accuracy in our evaluation the test has to have been done 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, via Skype or in person.
The Difference Between Functional And Conventional Blood Chemistry Analysis
A 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 physical tendencies that could ultimately lead to disease later on.
A 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, a 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.
A 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 it quantifies 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.
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 a statin drug. Or if they are more nutritionally oriented may say 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 is high as 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.
