The missing piece ...
… to your picture of health
Ever work on a jigsaw puzzle only to find one piece missing?
You’ve looked under the table, down behind the cushions in the sofa and still no piece! So frustrating … that you’re so close to completing it, but it’s not finished.
I’ve known that frustration firsthand with my own health … having all sorts of blood tests run, only to have the doctor glance at it and declare that there’s nothing wrong with me.
Yet I knew something was not right in my body. My body knew …
Have you experienced this?
Western medicine’s missing piece
In recent years, I have come to see how outdated the usual interpretation of blood results is.
While studying to become an herbalist, I learned that the reference ranges that blood work results are compared to are for the whole population … from the very sick to the optimally healthy.
I don’t know about you, but I want to be compared to the healthiest, not the sickest … so I want the reference ranges to be for optimal health, not the average!
The thing is, your body strives to operate within very narrow ranges. For instance, your blood pH needs to be between 7.35 and 7.45. Potassium between 4.3 and 4.5, etc. You get the idea.
It’ll do anything it needs to keep it that way ... even robbing nutrients from one part of the body to prop up another part, if it’s not getting enough from food, etc.
Your body will struggle to compensate for the dysfunction of a weakened organ, like your liver, thyroid or adrenals … until it can no longer prop it up. Then your body goes into crisis and disease becomes evident.
But long before this, there are often clues in the blood work that if interpreted against optimal ranges would be an early warning of trouble.
So, what does your practitioner see?
The missing piece to your health is there … ‘hiding in plain view’ waiting to be revealed through the eyes of a practitioner who looks beyond the test data to ‘why’.
Know that you can trust your body. It is leaving clues to finding your missing piece!
