Do your clients share their blood chemistry reports from their physician with you? Do you wish you knew how to interpret them from a functional perspective to gain further insight when everything appears “normal”? Are you looking for an inexpensive test panel to run on clients to get them started down the path towards health or pair with functional lab tests you’re currently using?
Blood chemistry reports can reveal a lot of information about your client’s health, but only if you interpret the results according to the optimal ranges rather than the lab’s reference ranges. In this training, you will learn the benefits of blood chemistry testing, why lab’s references ranges aren’t very useful, options for ordering blood chemistry tests, what to look for when interpreting blood chemistry test reports, and basic nutritional supplementation to consider based on blood chemistry testing. This training reviews 51 blood chemistry markers in detail, describing what each marker measures, what it means when the marker is high, what it means when the marker is low, other markers to look at to see if there is a pattern, functional tests to correlate with that marker, and other dietary/lifestyle factors and tips.
