Getting healthier shouldn’t be a guessing game. It should be scientific. And it can be.
In fact, the secret to good health is in your blood. Becoming aware of your health status and monitoring improvements with blood testing—or blood paneling—takes getting healthy to a new level.
Achieving optimal health through blood testing
It’s the start of 2019 and time for New Year’s resolutions. Whether you feel in control of your health or out of control, it’s important to know what’s really going on inside your body.
The best way to uncover anything that may be going on within your body is with a blood panel that looks specifically at all the levels that determine not only health, but also quality of life. It is not just any blood test, such as the one you might get with a routine physical examination. It’s much more.
Why is such an extensive blood panel necessary? Because you don’t want to miss anything. The human body is a complicated mechanism of interconnected systems. These systems need to operate in harmony to achieve optimal health. When systems begin to fall into suboptimal levels of function, they affect other systems. In essence, a biological ripple effect occurs.
Think of the body as a battery. In our 20s and early 30s, that battery is fully charged. But, as time passes, life’s stressors, sleepless nights, exposure to environmental toxins, and aging (or our diminished natural ability to rebuild and nourish our bodies) drain the battery.
Unless we take charge, determine what we need, and change our behaviors based on that knowledge, we’ll exist on a fraction of the charge we need to feel our best.
Putting knowledge in action
There are behaviors that are obvious health busters. Smoking, for example. But there are also changes that are not obvious at all. These are changes individuals need to make based on subtle indicators that can be found through an in-depth blood test. These changes can have a tremendous impact on your ability to achieve and maintain great health.
For example, opting to eat an extra-large pizza instead of having a meal with vegetables and a healthy protein isn’t in your best interest. Changing that behavior would be positive for anyone. What isn’t so obvious and is far more difficult to recognize is whether your body absorbs the amount of vitamin D you need to ward off disease and achieve optimal health.
The message? Unless you have specific knowledge about your health from blood work, even your best shot at achieving optimal health is little more than a shot in the dark. There’s no way for you to know everything you need to know without that blood panel.
The results of the initial blood panel are your starting point. The blood test doesn’t lie. It will reveal whether you are healthy or not, and give you a springboard on which to achieve optimal health in the New Year and beyond.
With this blood test, you’ll have the information you need to make the right decisions about your health.
