Why You Should Get A Comprehensive Blood Panel TODAY!
When was the last time you had a comprehensive laboratory blood panel? 5 years? 10 years? Most likely, your answer is never!
With 2016 wrapping up, Americans are the most health conscious we have ever been. Research is being published everyday about the harmful effects of everything from gluten and pesticides to BPA and heavy metals, along with ways to naturally protect ourselves from external, environmental factors. We live in an extremely toxic environment that requires our body to detoxify and function at its highest capability. The constant burden on our bodies is causing an increase of cancer, chronic disease, autoimmune disease, and alternation in our genetics that are passed on to future generations.
How do we stop this process from occurring? How do we lessen the toxic load placed on our bodies? The answer is to first understand the metabolic function and biochemistry of the human body. Receiving a comprehensive blood panel and assessment from a licensed naturopathic doctor can do this!
Naturopathic Doctors are specially trained in interpretation of blood work and altering a patient’s lifestyle to assist them in becoming their optimal selves. Understanding the health of our bodies at a physiological and biochemical level will transcend us into the future to live longer, healthier lives.
