After recently announcing that I became certified in Functional Blood Chemistry Analysis, I have received many questions about the difference between functional and traditional blood tests. In this article, I will explain the difference and the benefits of functional blood chemistry analysis and how it can prevent dysfunction from evolving into disease.
Functional blood chemistry analysis (FBCA) is a cutting-edge approach to understanding one’s health that goes beyond the traditional method of evaluating specific biomarkers and comparing them to established normal ranges. Instead, FBCA looks at the body as a whole and seeks to identify the underlying causes of any imbalances or dysfunction.
One of the key benefits of functional blood chemistry analysis is its ability to identify and treat dysfunction early on before it develops into a full-blown disease. This is in contrast to the traditional approach, which focuses on diagnosing and treating specific diseases after they have already developed. By using FBCA, practitioners can intervene early and prevent negative health outcomes from occurring.
Another advantage of FBCA is its client-centered approach. Unlike traditional medicine, which begins with the disease and works back to the client, functional medicine starts with the client and their concerns and works towards treating those concerns. This approach is more tailored to the individual’s unique needs and can lead to better outcomes.
FBCA also differs from traditional blood testing in terms of the ranges used to interpret test results. Traditional blood chemistry analysis relies on whether or not a given biomarker’s values are inside or outside of a laboratory’s reference range, which is based on the average values found within a sample population. However, functional medicine practitioners use much tighter ranges that are empirically correlated with real health outcomes. This allows for a more accurate assessment of a client’s health status and can guide them toward achieving optimal health.
In conclusion, functional blood chemistry analysis is a powerful tool for understanding and improving one’s health. It goes beyond the traditional approach of evaluating specific biomarkers and focuses on identifying and treating dysfunction early on. It is a client-centered approach that uses tight ranges to guide clients toward optimal health.
If you want to take control of your health and gain a deeper understanding of your body, I recommend considering Functional Blood Chemistry Analysis. It goes beyond traditional methods and can help identify underlying causes of imbalances and dysfunction before they become serious issues. I offer a complimentary consultation where we can discuss how this approach can benefit you.
