I have had hundreds of conversations with people who are exhausted but have been told that their blood tests are “fine”. Current pathology reference ranges are outdated and are determined by calculating the average results from a population of people who are not well. This means that you can be experiencing symptoms of fatigue, anxiety, subfertility, constipation, acne, hair loss, etc – but because you are still technically “within range” of a very broad reference range, you will be told that you are fine. Only when you enter an actual disease state, condition or overt deficiency will this be diagnosed by a conventional blood tests, but clearly we want to optimise our hormones and health and prevent any disease state from occurring in the first place.
My newest e-book contains the strict references ranges for blood testing that I use in clinical practice, based on my naturopathic and functional medicine training. It covers the optimal levels of important blood tests such as iron, vitamin D, thyroid hormones, sex hormones and more.
This e-book is for you if you are experiencing:
Weight gain or inability to lose weight
Unwanted facial hair growth
Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD)
Poor gut health
Suspected hormone imbalances
Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS)
Acne or skin blemishes
Are preparing for a family
Have received a health diagnosis of any kind
Or just do not feel quite right.
You can purchase the e-book here. I hope you find it helpful on your journey to health.
