What is a Nutritional Blood Analysis?
Nutritional Blood Analysis is a unique test that is done with a single drop of blood placed under a high powered microscope. You will then see a living picture of YOUR blood on a monitor screen while the test is being conducted. Dr. MacIsaac will discuss with you the health and nutritional status and possible deficiencies of those blood cells.
How Can You Benefit?
An examination of the blood can give indication of:
- The oxygen carrying capacity of blood which is associated with symptoms such as the energy level, breathing, alertness or sluggishness, stamina, physical performance, concentration, fatigue and headaches.
- The status of the immune system, the ability to fight infections and disease.
- Digestive problems, specifically sugars/carbohydrates, proteins or fats.
- Nutritional deficiencies and more.
These and many other observations are conducted using state of the art technology. The results are then discussed with you by a trained, professional and caring technician.
Nutrition Blood Analysis provides a wide spectrum of very useful information on health. The test will educate you on the proper functions of the digestive and other systems. The Nutritional Blood Analysis gives an excellent opportunity for you to improve your health through proper diet, lifestyle and supplements.
