Functional Blood Chemistry Analysis

There’s a story in your blood… What is it telling you?

Blood tests come back normal, but you just don’t feel right?

 

So you’re feeling off and your doctor orders some blood tests, but when the results come in you are told “everything looks normal”. Yet, despite this you still don’t feel well and are convinced that something is going on…

If this sounds familiar, you are not alone!

This is actually a very common experience, which typically results from the way conventional blood testing is interpreted. It’s not uncommon for people to start feeling unwell long before their blood markers move outside the traditional ‘normal’ range.

Even though you’ve been told everything looks great, your test results may be far from being what is considered physiologically optimal.

‘Normal’ is not the same as optimal!

Many people who feel unwell will typically have ‘normal’ results on a blood test. However, normal is by no means the same as optimal! Blood markers may have not yet progressed to a state of diagnosable disease, but they may be far from what is considered ideal or healthy.

The issue isn’t that blood testing is a poor diagnostic tool, far from it. The issue is that the reference ranges used on traditional blood tests are far too broad and based on statistical averages, not whether a certain value represents good health or optimal function for you. 

As such, conventional blood test interpretation is often inadequate at detecting health problems early on. Luckily, there’s a far smarter approach available!

Introducing Functional Blood Chemistry Analysis

Functional Blood Chemistry Analysis (FBCA) is the solution to this problem!

Unlike conventional blood analysis, which uses broad reference ranges to diagnose a disease, FBCA utilises ‘functional’ ranges in order to determine disease risk and identify sub-clinical health problems long before they manifest as full-blown disease. 

With early detection, many of your health problems can be prevented and appropriately managed with diet and lifestyle interventions. As the saying goes… “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”.

Another great feature of FBCA is it’s ability to track your health indicators and disease risk over time. By comparing your results to previous tests you are able to view your healthy trajectory and monitor the effects of any health-optimisation strategies you implement.

It’s arguably one of the most valuable, efficient and cost-effective screening tools for evaluating the status of your health and susceptibility to disease.

How can FBCA help me? 

There are many reasons why you might want to consider getting a FBCA.  Whether you are trying to get to the bottom of an elusive health complaint or simply want more information to make informed decisions around your health, FBCA is a fantastic tool to assist you.

Some common reasons you might consider getting a FBCA include:

✓ Get a second opinion as it relates to existing ‘normal’ blood work

✓ Uncover blindspots/weak links and identify healing opportunities

 Assess nutrient status to help guide diet changes and supplementation

 Highlight sub-clinical problems before they develop into something more serious

✓ Monitor the effects of diet, exercise and lifestyle interventions

✓ Tracking health trends and disease risk over time

✓ Gain deeper insight into the underlying causes of your health complaints

✓ Having a more sensitive way to evaluate health that’s better suited to early detection

Getting started with Functional Blood Chemistry Analysis

 

Getting your FBCA is very simple… There are 4 steps involved:

Step 1 – Get a blood test (skip this step if you already have blood work completed)

– You’ll need your healthcare provider to order your blood work (see below for a list of markers to request).

If you live in Australia and need help getting a blood test, let us know and we can assist you. 

Step 2 – Send us your results   

– Once your blood test results arrive back from the lab send us a copy via email and we will run the analysis.

Step 3 – Receive your FBCA report.

– Once the analysis is complete, we’ll send you your comprehensive FBCA report via email, typically within 48-hours.

 Step 4 (optional) – Attend your 60-minute ‘results and recommendation’ consultation via Zoom. 

– Discuss your results with a Functional Medicine Practitioner, get your questions answered and receive recommendations for diet, lifestyle and nutritional supplementation.

What blood markers shall I get tested?

FBCA can analyse 125+ individual biomarkers to provide deep insight into your body’s biochemistry. The more markers you get testing and provide us for the analysis, the more accurate, revealing and powerful your report will be. We suggest asking your healthcare provider to run the following panels:

I don't have a blood tests, but want to get a FBCA. What should I do?

If you do not have a blood tests, but want to have a FBCA, you have two options:

1) Visit your primary care provider and ask if they can order blood testing for you. This may or may not be covered by your healthcare insurance/Medicare.

The more blood markers you get tested the more powerful the FBCA report will be.

Here’s a list of suggested blood markers to request from your doctor or health practitioner.

2) If you live in Australia and want a blood test without having to see a healthcare provider, we can help organise this via Clinical Laboratories. This is a private service requiring an out-of pocket expense and is not covered by Medicare. Please email us for more information. 

What can I do with the information provided in my report

Functional Blood Chemistry Analysis provides insight into your current health status and can help uncover blindspots that you may not have been aware of. This allows you to seek help and take appropriate action so that you can achieve your health and wellness goals.

Nutritional deficiencies identified on the report can be helpful to make informed decisions about diet, lifestyle and nutritional supplementation.

The report can also provide a comparative analysis between up to 6 prevous test results and can be used to track changes. This can be helpful to track disease risk over time and monitor the effects of a health optimisation program.   

Your FBCA report can be shared with members of your healthcare team, so they can help support and guide you in your pursuit for better health.

FBCA is not intended to provide medical advice or to take the place of a consultation and treatment from your doctor.

Should the report flag-up anything that may indicate a serous problem, please seek appropriate medical advice.  

How often should I get a FBCA?

Periodic testing is recommended every 6-12 months

 

What should I do if I have a 'dysfunction highly likely' in one or more sections of my report?

This report is not intended to diagnose or treat any specific medical condition. If the report determines there is a high likelihood of dysfunction occurring in a body system, you should speak with your primary healthcare provider for further evaluation and management.
