Just because you do not have a disease does not mean you are healthy. Wellness can be measured objectively. Measuring Wellness offers a unique analysis of common blood chemistry parameters that identify where your body is struggling to maintain balance even is advance of the dysfunctions that lead to disease.
Human metabolism operates optimally when blood chemistry maintains itself within narrow ranges. This process is very complex and is called homeostasis. When blood chemistry values deviate from these true, normal ranges they reflect underlying dysfunctions. These dysfunctions or defects appear before a true disease develops. They can accurately be called “subclinical defects”.
Western medicine laboratory “normals” are set to define diseases not dysfunctions. Thus, these “subclinical defect/dysfunctions” go largely unrecognized by well-trained annd well-meaining physicians. The symptoms that may (or may not) accompany these imbalances are subtle and might leave you feeling “suboptimal”. However, if treated through lifestyle, dietary changes, and/or appropriate supplements (medical foods), subclinical defects can be reversed in advance of more serious dysfunctions which eventually progress into full blown diseases.
Your body and its metabolism function like a finely-tuned high-performance sports car, and your biochemistry is the dashboard. The biochemistry of your body can be scientifically tracked by objective laboratory data. These data are like an ongoing weather report, transmitted by your very own body, that tells both how it is doing and what it needs to function better.
Recognizing that your body can create your best performance and promote longevity through correct metabolic maintenance is the foundation that promotes wellness. Medicine is what your doctor does for you. Health is what you give to yourself.
