No general screening test is more 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.
The Evidence 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.
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 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 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.
The Evidence Based Nutrition report is the most comprehensive analysis available. Some of the key features that sets us apart from others are:
- Individualized supplement recommendations & dosages specific to test findings, age, sex, & weight of the patient
- Dietary recommendations with meal recipe
- Compare color-coded current and previous test results on the same page
- Incorporates multiple factors for each condition or diagnosis including the patients symptoms, medications, blood tests, hair tests, chelation and urine tests
- Complete laboratory analysis to document and monitor current disease processes and tendencies toward disease
- Color-coded report to quickly identify problem areas
- Correlation of tests results with symptoms, lifestyle habits or medication side effects thatcould contribute to the abnormality.
- Comprehensive list of lifestyle recommended based upon the patients individual test results.
How does the program work?
Your health professional will determine what testing needs to be performed during your consultation. More complex or serious conditions will likely require more extensive testing. The overall cost is a pittance compared to the medical costs and drugs and considering that you may be sicker or dead if you continue with the medical treatments and drugs that are not working.
How long does it take to get the test results back?
If you do the testing through your doctor's office, it usually takes no more than two weeks to get all of the test results back and your personalized detailed report completed!
Can I get my blood work done through my health professional?
Yes, however, it would be prudent for you to check pricing thoroughly. Many patients find the cost is less if you get it through a Science Based Nutrition™ health professional. If you decide to go through your insurance company for reimbursement, the test findings will go on your permanent record and will affect future premiums and ratings.
What makes SBN trained health professionals different from "nutritionists" or general "doctors"?
The Science Based Nutrition™ analysis and recommendations are based on scientific andobjective testing. Some of the diagnostic testing used are blood testing, toxic and elemental hair testing, food allergy testing (ALCAT and Elisa), DMSA urinary challenge, DEXA bone density scan, and EKG. There are a lot of very questionable 'energy' techniques to determine diseases and conditions including the many variations of muscle testing. Studies have shown they are no better than just guessing. We get great results because we use objective testing methods.
We also have a higher standard in Healthy Ranges.
How long will it take before I start to see improvement in my health problems?
Understand that we don't have a cure for your problem whether it is a rash, diabetes or cancer. Our goal is to get you healthier. Progress is the key and generally patients see some definite, objective improvement within 2 months. If you committ to following the program for 2 months, it is highly unusual that progress/improvement is not seen. Then the goal is to keep you improving on a consistent basis.
