This week we are taking a closer look at the fascinating world of blood work recording and its importance in achieving optimal health and hormone balance.

Here are the key takeaways from this episode:

1️⃣ Be your own health advocate: It's crucial to prioritize your health and educate yourself about the importance of blood work. Being proactive and informed empowers you to make better choices and take control of your well-being.

2️⃣ Find a functional medicine practitioner: Seek out healthcare professionals who are open-minded, knowledgeable, and not driven by institutional greed. Functional medicine practitioners integrate evidence-based research and a holistic approach to address the root causes of health issues, ultimately promoting overall wellness.

3️⃣ Optimal ranges matter: Relying solely on traditional lab reference ranges may not provide an accurate picture of your health. It's important to work with healthcare professionals who stay up-to-date with the latest scientific research to determine personalized optimal ranges for blood markers and identify potential issues before they become larger problems.

4️⃣ Inflammation markers are vital: Assessing inflammation levels is crucial in understanding the state of your health. However, it's also important to consider symptoms and other factors when evaluating inflammation.

5️⃣ Building your health file: Request a copy of your blood test results and create a health file to keep track of your progress over time. This empowers you to monitor changes, spot trends, and have a comprehensive view of your health status.
