Would you consider yourself healthy if you’re simply not sick? How about if you consider yourself active or eat “clean” most of the time. Dorland’s Medical Dictionary defines health as a condition of optimum physical, social, mental and spiritual well-being – not merely the absence of disease or infirmities.”
If you have a true desire to be healthy, going be feel, or trying to do the right thing may not be enough. It may also pose frustrations with results, or anxiety on trying to navigate the correct path with conflicting information from media and professionals.
Consider also that how you feel can be an incredibly misleading indicator as to what’s taking place inside of us. Liver function can drop to as low as 20% before symptoms are noted. Fortunately, there is another way.
Lab based testing is one of the most useful ways to assess health. A full blood panel, for example, can tell you what nutritional deficiencies may be present, what diseases or conditions you may have, or provide insight on organ function.
At Body Bliss, Dr. Berger can work with you to determine and order which test(s) best serve your needs based on a consultation and questionnaire, or review any recent tests you have had. After a thorough review of your tests, he will make the best recommendations for diet and supplementation. Should you choose to have follow-up test after two months, it would become very easy to see what improvements were made between the pre and post-test, and what fine tuning needs to be made.
Take the guesswork out of trying to do the right thing. Alleviate your anxiety about ignoring potentially serious underlying conditions. Finally, take comfort in pursuing the best pathway to naturally improving your health.
