When was the last time you had your bloodwork tested? More importantly, what did it tell you? If you’re like most people who get their bloodwork done every few years, you’re probably happy every time you see that you’re within the “normal range” for things like white blood cell count, cholesterol, etc. But is normal really what you should be aiming for?
The Problem with Normal Ranges
Don't get us wrong, being within a normal range is a good thing. We’re just here to tell you that it’s not the best thing. The problem with normal ranges is that it’s based on a nationwide average, not your specific needs.
All too often, people read that they’re within the “ideal range” for a test and continue their day, confident that they’re in perfect health. But unbeknownst to them, “normal” is not synonymous with “healthy.” Someone who falls at the top of an ideal range may actually need to be at the lower end to experience their best health, or vice-versa.
Genetic Solutions Never Uses Ranges
Unlike government averages, we don’t factor anyone else’s health into our ideal numbers. Through blood testing, we get an accurate reading of your:
- Hormone levels
- Pre-hormone levels
- Fat-soluble vitamins
- Water-soluble vitamins
- Mineral levels
- Various genetic markers
We’ll then cross-examine where your levels are with where they should be (based on your DNA history) and create a 100% personalized approach to your health. Once your hormones, vitamins, and minerals are in a target range, your body chemistry will be balanced.
We’re so proud to now offer Integrated Genetic Solutions testing at Unruh Spine Center for all existing and new patients. Want to learn more about how we can get you feeling your best? Give us a call at 661.338.5073 today!
