Early Detection and Correction: Keys to a Healthy Life

Did you know ... how you feel is no indication of how healthy you are?
 
Did you know ... you can have only 20% organ function left, such as liver or kidney, and yet show no signs of organ failure or dysfunction? 
 
Did you know ... your body will break down muscle, bone and other body tissue to free up nutrients for more important bodily processes?
 
Did you know ... there are diagnostic tests to identify environmental toxicities and their effect on your health?
 
Did you know ...,as in chiropractic, by using objective laboratory testing your provider gains an unique advantage of evaluating each person's individual results?  This approach will enable your provider to identify and treat problems early before it's too late.

 

 

In a climate where advice about healthy foods and nutritious diets seems to be changing every day, a science-based approach helps to sort through the conflicting information and make clear and wise food choices.

 

At Dynamic Spine Center, we offer a science based approach to nutritional healthcare. Many problems show up in the blood long before you actually “feel” symptoms. Did you know you can have only 20% liver or kidney function left and still have virtually no symptoms? How do you know, if you’re truly healthy? Certain tests, when read properly, will indicate whether or not you are progressing toward a serious illness, such as cancer, liver, heart or many other diseases.

 

Whether you are 6 or 60, experiencing life is best when you are healthy.

Are you healthy enough to experience and enjoy everything that life has to offer? Beginning with a comprehensive blood test, Science Based Nutrition™ trained health professionals perform an in-depth analysis of your total system. Problem areas are identified and carefully documented so that proactive measure may be taken to attain optimal health.

A complete Nutritional Blood Analysis will determine:

  • How healthy you really are
  • What problems are just beginning
  • What diseases you have
  • What dietary and lifestyle changes you should make
  • If the supplements you are taking are working

After your wellness consultation we will determine the testing that should be done. In addition to blood-work we collect saliva, urine, hair and stool samples and this allows us to do a much more comprehensive in-depth analysis of your body functions than you have been used to getting.  The testing will show where the problem areas are occurring or just developing. Your detailed report will explain your test findings, as well as the nutrient and dietary recommendations based upon your test results.

No general screening test is more efficient, effective and affordable than a comprehensive blood chemistry panel. It allows the healthcare provider to establish a baseline of biomarkers to track your health and nutritional needs.  The appropriate testing is essential to understanding your current level of health.

The Science Based Nutrition™ program is an innovative, science-based look at nutritional strengths and weaknesses through an individual’s blood test and analysis of hair, urine, and stool. This scientific approach can offer a clear plan for your optimum health.

We are a new generation of healthcare professional and we have the tools that can reveal the more subtle imbalances and assist in correcting them.  We believe wellness is a proactive approach, we don’t have to wait until you develop a disease before we start to help.  We believe in identifying and correcting the problem long before it becomes a disease.

The Difference

test-tube-with-the-blood- 

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!

 

Does it make sense to compare your blood test results to averages taken from people who were already sick enough to be experiencing a symptom? No. That is why being “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.

Why I Look At Functional Lab Ranges Not Just Pathological Ranges

There are two main types of ranges in the field of blood chemistry analysis: a pathological range and a functional range. The pathological range is used to diagnose disease; the functional range is used to assess risk for disease before the disease develops. The references that are provided with laboratory test results are referred to as “the pathological range,” because if the test results are out of range, it usually indicates potential for pathology or disease.

 pathologic rangefunctional range

The main different between the functional range and the pathological range is the degree of deviation allowed within their normal ranges. For example the functional range for glucose may be 85 – 100 mg/dl, but the pathological range may be 65-110 mg/dl. Levels above the pathological range may indicate diabetes. Levels above the functional range, but before they reach the extremes of the pathological range, may indicate insulin resistance and a future risk for developing diabetes.

When I have a patient tell me that they have already had their doctor run labs and they are “normal,” I cringe. Rarely are the labs normal from a functional perspective. The pathological lab values provided on the lab results are actually based on a “bell curve analysis” of all the people that have been to the lab over “x” amount of time. If you go to the same lab in two different cities you will find that the reference ranges are actually different. It is important to have a doctor who looks at functional ranges so you are not considered “normal” or “healthy”, because your lab tests fall in the same range as the majority of the sick people that have been to that lab. The sicker the population gets the wider, and less useful the lab reference ranges become.
