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. The Science Based Nutrition report provides individual, drug-free recommendations to promote optimum health based on imbalances and dysfunction identified from the 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. Getting a blood test is essential to understanding your current health.
As a result, a new generation of healthcare professionals is emerging with the tools that can reveal the more subtle imbalances and assist in correcting them.
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 peoples 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 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.
We will look at your blood test more critically. Using
optimal ranges rather than normal ranges ( for example, the normal
range for cholesterol is 100-199 but the optimal range is 140-170)we
will analyze your lab values to reveal the areas in your body that need
improvement. Then we will share nutrition and diet recommendations to
improve the weak areas. Most importantly after 60 days on the program we will retest the lab work to see how you are doing.
Based on the objective data, we will make any needed changes to our
recommendations. We will never make a general suggestion or a "why don't
you try this" suggestion. Every single recommendation will be designed
to improve a lab value in your blood, hair, or urine analysis. This
process is why we call this science based nutrition!
