Clearly 95% of patients do not feel well, even when their blood tests results indicate they are "normal" Most people who seek medical care do not have a clinically identifiable disease. People who are suffering symptoms find that being told they are "normal" according to their lab tests is reassuring, but confusing. "If I feel so bad why are my numbers good?" is a legitimate question. Or, in some cases a person feels well enough but some of their numbers are out of normal ranges.
Having "Normal Ranges" in your lab report 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. Ask yourself this very important question:
it make sense to compare your blood test results to averages taken from people who were already
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 Opti-Plus panel consists of a series of 47 different tests that can evaluate not only medical conditions, but to also pin point underlying functional disturbances that continue to make you have less than optimal health. You will receive not only the actual lab values, but rather a thorough explanation of what the values mean in an easy-to-understand format.
In addition, lifestyle and dietary recommendations are made that fit into the context of your lab values that result in truly improved health.
Finally, you will also receive a detailed list of supplements that target your out-of-range values to return your body back to a normal functioning state.
If you're looking to be optimally healthy, then you need testing that is designed to look for underlying causes! That's exactly what we do when we evaulate the Opti-Plus Panel!
