Why We Don't Do Labs for Chronic Symptoms and AutoImmuneOct 15, 2020
WHY WE DON’T DO LABS
We don’t do labs or stool samples or microbiome testing to figure out how to help you and get rid of your symptoms and here’s why:
First of all you should definitely get labs through your medical doctor to rule out any serious illness or disease BUT if you are struggling with chronic symptoms and immune dysfunction, often times labs will come back normal and that’s where we come in.
We don’t do labs because even though blood work can SOMETIMES tell you if your body is not working properly, it can’t tell you WHY. The type of testing we do gives us the WHY so we can address the actual source instead of trying to squash the dysfunction without fixing WHY it’s happening.
Also you need a 60% degradation in most cases for blood work to show abnormal whereas this testing shows us dysfunction at 5% degradation. You can have symptoms at a lesser degradation than abnormal labs. This means you can have normal labs and still have legitimate issues that can be fixed that are causing your symptoms!
Did you know that 11 out of 12 stool samples are FALSE NEGATIVES? You can have fixable issues that will not show up in the stool because you have to get the right part of the poop to test and if it’s a parasite, it has to be when they are down there and in the right part of their lifecycle! One time I had a stool sample done and we sent one piece to one lab and one to another lab and one lab found it and the other one didn’t so…..
Since each person is unique and different, no two people should get the same treatment plan. The type of testing we do helps determine the underlying issues so instead of trying to fix something by trying to squash the symptom, we go to the underlying why of what's causing that imbalance.
For example, if two people have the same thyroid condition or autoimmune disorder like IBS, CFS, Fibro or Crohns, they won't get the same program here because they will have different underlying issues causing that imbalance. That’s why labs DON’T help us come up with the right naturopathic program for you. The proof is in the pudding and we get results and isn’t that what matters most?
