WHY DO WE FIND THINGS IN OUR BLOOD TESTING THAT OTHERS DO NOT?
Have you been to the doctor (or maybe many doctors) complaining of symptoms like fatigue, sugar cravings, gas, bloating, digestive distress, P.M.S, hot flashes, frequent colds or flu, chronic sinusitis, yeast infections, insomnia, anxiety, depression, mood swings, energy drops, hair loss, constipation, diarrhea, brain fog, memory loss, inability to lose weight regardless of diet and exercise, irritability or sluggishness in the mornings? If so, you are not alone! We hear this all the time.
When a traditional physician reads blood results, they are typically looking for readings that fall outside of what is considered “normal”. The range for ""normal is very broad. Usually if your lab values are outside these parameters, you are already in a state of disease. Juli Keene, CN reads and interprets blood test results using a clinical nutrition model. This model uses a much more narrow range to indicate normal. In this case, normal would equal “optimum health and functioning”. A reading outside of these results would not necessarily indicate disease, but would indicate that the body is not running as optimally as it could be. If these problems go undetected, future health issues or even disease is likely. Blood nutrient analysis is a holistic and scientific method for preventing disease and bringing our bodies back to optimum health.
We use our comprehensive panel of tests to find the out of range lab values, and we support the body and bring your lab values back into balance with the use of targeted nutritional therapy. This enables you to feel your best and helps to prevent chronic and acute diseases, as you grow older. If you are the type of person that feels like something is not right with your health, or you don’t feel as good as you once did but your Dr. finds nothing wrong, nutritional blood analysis might be just the thing for you.
DO I HAVE TO FEEL BAD TO BENEFIT FROM NUTRITIONAL BLOOD TESTING?
You do not have to feel bad to benefit from our services. We have helped many athletes, actors, models, singers, musicians and other professionals to prevent future problems, optimize their ability, achieve their health a fitness goals and soften the health challenges associated with aging, by using nutritional testing and target nutrition therapy. We help them to gain the special edge needed to be spectacular.
HOW DOES IT WORK? We send you to a certified lab near you (if available in your area). Then we analyze your blood and you receive a report of findings, interpretation and food and supplement recommendations. We can do this all by fax or e-mail if you are not close to our office. Please call or e-mail to get your testing started or to get your questions answered. (310) 376-5400 or email@example.com. See Nutrition Services page for prices.
WHERE DID JULI KEENE, CN LEARN HOW TO READ AND INTERPRET THESE BLOOD TESTS IN SUCH A UNIQUE AND VALUABLE WAY?
Juli Keene, B.S.c, CN was lucky enough to be trained over 15 years ago by Dr. Harry Eidener Jr.,PHD a biochemist, nutritional scientist and brilliant supplement formulator. He has since retired but back in the early 1990's, he was teaching blood chemistry analysis and the management of metabolism and body chemistry. The "Optimal Ranges" for blood chemistry identified during his 20 + year study started in the late 1970's during his work with Michigan State University. The goal of the study was to figure out what the "OPTIMUM RANGES" for lab values were on a blood chemistry profile. The "accepted normal ranges" derived over the last 100 years from reports of hospital patients, diagnosed with illnesses and what their lab values were are still the ranges used today. Dr.Eidener thought that basing these so-called optimum ranges on healthy people and athletes, rather than ill ones, would provide us with a much more accurate and useful range for optimum health. Dr. Eidener tracked the results of over 10, 0000 blood tests during what he calls the "Biochemical Biopsy Study". He was trying to see if he could predict neoplasm (cancer) before it happened with blood nutrient testing and analysis. He found a vast amount of priceless data on what the optimum ranges are, and how optimize these lab values.
Juli's extensive training in using diet and nutritional supplements (herbs, vitamins, amino acids, essential fatty acids and other dietary supplements) to optimize blood test values has been a key strategy in helping her clients feel better. This is an invaluable tool in her practice. Juli has found that she is able to help many of the clients to regain health and reach their goals using this testing and analysis. Juli uses the blood analysis along with symptom, dietary and health assessments to figure out where the imbalance lies and how to restore balance. Many of her clients are amazed at what Juli can tell them simply by reading their blood panel.
WHAT DOES THE BLOOD PANEL INCLUDE?
Our comprehensive blood profile includes tests for Glucose, Albumin, Globulin, Thyroid, T3, T4, TSH, Cholesterol (HDL/LDL), and Triglycerides, Iron, Calcium, Phosphorus, Sodium, LDH, GTP, ALT/SGPT, AST/SGOT, Vit D, Bilirubin, Protein, Chloride, Carbon Dioxide, Creatinine, Uric Acid, Bun/Creatine Ratio and a complete blood count. These tests are useful in evaluating the functioning of your liver, kidneys, heart, thyroid, blood sugar, metabolism, digestion of protein, sugars, carbohydrates and fats as well as your acidity or alkalinity. This profile can help determine which nutrients you may need to supplement, and whether or not you may be getting too much of any nutrients. We can also do a custom profile adding in specific vitamins, minerals, hormones or whatever you may need tested. Please contact Juli Keene regarding a custom panel. This is a fasting blood test so no food or drink (excpet plenty of water) for 8-10 hours prior to the test. You will be sent complete instructions prior to your blood draw.
"Juli Keene was my 2nd Nutritionist after seeing 4 doctors for my health problems. I felt so bad every day that I dreaded getting up in the morning. I had headaches, was always tired and anxious and had alternating diarrhea and constipation. I was also barely eating all day then starving for sweets and bread at night and gaining weight rapidly. I was told by the doctors that it was all in my head, nothing was wrong, it was just stress, and two of them wanted me to take anti-depressants. The first nutritionist I went to said that I should visualize myself feeling better cut out all carbohydrates, coffee and red meat and exercise more. Needless to say, none of these things helped. A friend of mine from work had been working with Juli for over 10 years and just raved about her. Out of sheer desperation, I decided to try it. Juli did the blood testing and symptom assessments and immediately found a subclinical thyroid problem, a possible adrenal problem and something that looked like allergies or infection. We did stool microbiology testing, food allergy testing and saliva adrenal testing. She referred me back to a great M.D. (I was now armed with my test results) who gave me natural thyroid medication and a prescription for the Candida found in my gut (which was causing me to be allergic to many of the foods that I ate often). This helped me feel 60% better within 2 weeks. She also gave me supplements and a sensible food plan and I was 100% back to my old self within 6 weeks!!! That was 5 years ago. Juli Keene is the first person I call or e-mail when I feel myself getting out of balance. She really knows her stuff, and she has no problem referring me to a specialist for the things that are out of her area. If you are suffering do not wait, try Juli. I've now sent many of my friends, family and coworkers and they are all feeling better too!"
