A Simple Blood Test That Could Change Your Life

Your M.D. may do a blood test to rule out various diseases. But what about that gray area between health and disease? This is the stage where, if your doctor has special training, effective intervention may prevent disease and create a more optimal level of health.

Stresses of all kinds begin to take their toll on the body and eventually dysfunction results. If the stresses continue, this dysfunction leads to symptoms. If we don't heed the warning that symptoms give us, we might allow a dysfunction to develop into a full blown disease. For example, it takes many years of stress and poor dietary habits to build up the amount of plaque in the arteries needed to end up with blocked, hardened arteries. Much can be done to prevent this and many other diseases and illnesses.

There Is A Difference

If you doctor looked at your blood test and said everything was okay, was he saying that based on his interpretation, there was no disease indicated? If so that's great! But a doctor with special skills will take this a giant leap farther.

Holistic And Alternative (Natural) Medicine

Holistic and natural medicine is the field of health care focused on cases ranging from early dysfunction to advanced disease and using effective natural means of treatment. Restoring the body's most ideal physiological function is the goal of therapy.

Clinical Ranges Vs. Optimal Ranges

The lab determines the normal range of a blood test by calculating the average of all the people tested. The problem is that the people tested don't represent a healthy population. So being within the normal range of a sick population is not such a good deal!

The optimal range is a much narrower range that represents normal values for a healthy population. In holistic medicine, we use these ranges in our analysis of a blood test. Then diet, lifestyle modifications, and nutritional supplements documented in the scientific literature are recommended to help bring test values back into the normal healthy range. Retesting determines if the mission has been accomplished.

(Dr. Piro is trained in Holistic and Natural Medicine and routinely works with blood tests in this manner.) If you would like to schedule a blood test, call us at (727) 789-4020.
