There shouldn't be a healthcare provider on the planet today that isn't testing their patients Vitamin D levels. The research is reporting that low levels most certainly cause disease and make metabolic pathways not work. When vitamin D levels are low, supplementation is recommended or the dosage is often increased. More and more we see how research demonstrates intricate interrelationships with other nutrients.
We are learning that low vitamin D cannot be metabolized without sufficient magnesium levels. Magnesium is another one of those critical nutrients that MUST also be measured in every patient. Magnesium is required for bone and will help prevent osteoporosis and musculoskeletal disorders, and cardiovascular diseases. Magnesium along with vitamin D is one of the most common nutrients deficiencies in the United States. The critical take home point of this blog is;
"If an individual is deficient in magnesium, then vitamin D will remain stored and inactive."
The reason I teach my patients to make sure they know their lab values is because any deficiency in magnesium, or vitamin D or even vitamin K will contribute to vascular calcification which will then cause high blood pressure, pain in your lower legs, renal disease, heart attacks, stroke or dementia. Once your arterial lining begins to calcify it is very hard to reverse this damage inside the vessels.
According to a literature review, individuals with optimum magnesium levels require less vitamin D supplementation to achieve optimal vitamin D levels. It is also important to remember that magnesium makes up 50% of bone and helps to reduce the risk of osteoporosis. Therefore, a deficiency in either of these nutrients is associated with numerous conditions, such as musculoskeletal disorders, cardiovascular diseases, and metabolic syndrome.
The standard American diet contains only about 50% of the magnesium required for normal function. This can be attributed to industrialized agriculture and changes in dietary habits. Magnesium levels are low in individuals who consume processed foods high in refined grains, fat, and sugar. There is so much recent evidence mounting that links low levels of vitamin D to an increased risk of type 1 diabetes, muscle and bone pain, and, perhaps more serious, cancers of the breast, colon, prostate, ovaries, esophagus, and lymphatic system. If you want to lower your blood pressure, vitamin D may be just what the doctor ordered. If you're trying to reduce your risk of diabetes, or lower your chances of heart attacks, rheumatoid arthritis, or multiple sclerosis, then vitamin D should be at the front of the line in your daily supplement regimen.
Optimizing your magnesium levels may help to lower the risk of vitamin D deficiencies. Foods high in magnesium include nuts, beans, eggs, green vegetables, and seeds. Most individuals require supplementation of 300-500 mg daily to achieve sufficient intracellular levels of magnesium. In individuals whose levels do not increase, supplementation with glutathione will often correct this.
This review was a great example of the interplay between nutrients and their impact on health and disease. Along this same line of thinking, a study from 2016 that demonstrated that B vitamins had no effect on cognitive decline when omega-3 levels are low. However, when omega-3 levels are in an upper normal range, B vitamins slow cognitive decline and brain atrophy.

Complete Blood Count
WBC—White blood cells are the body's primary defense against disease. White blood cells help fight infection.
RBC—Red blood cells are responsible for carrying oxygen to and carbon dioxide away from all cells.
Hemoglobin—A chemical compound inside red cells that transports oxygen through the blood stream to all cells of the body. Oxygen is needed for healthy organs. Hemoglobin gives the red color to blood.
Hematocrit—Hematocrit measures the amount of space red blood cells take up in the blood.
MCV—MCV reflects the size of red blood cells by expressing the volume occupied by a single red blood cell.
MCH Mean—Corpuscular Hemoglobin is one way to measure the average hemoglobin concentration within red blood cells.
MCHC—MCHC measures the average concentration of hemoglobin in red blood cells. It is most valuable in evaluating therapy for anemia because Hemoglobin and Hemotacrit are used, not R.B.C., in the calculation.
RDW—Red cell distribution width (RDW) is a calculation of the variation in the size of your RBC's.
Platelets--Blood cell particles involved with the forming of blood clots.
Neutrophils, Lymphocytes, Monocytes, Eosinophils, and Basophils deal with white blood cell function. Important to the body's defense against infection and also important in the assessment of nutritional status. These tests are based upon percentages.
Neutrophils (Absolute), Lymphocytes (Absolute), Monocytes (Absolute), Eosinophils (Absolute), and Basophils (Absolute) deal with white blood cell function. Important to the body's defense against infection and also important in the assessment of nutritional status. These tests are based upon total count.
Immature Granulocytes and Immature Grans (Abs) deal with white blood cell function. These tests check the maturity, percentage and total count, of immature neutrophils, which can be neutrophilic, acidophilic, or basophilic in nature.
Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH)-TSH, produced by the anterior pituitary gland, causes the release and distribution of stored thyroid hormones.
Cholesterol, Total—Cholesterol is a critical fat that is a structural component of cell membrane and plasma lipoproteins, and is important in the synthesis of steroid hormones, glucocorticoids, and bile acids. Mostly synthesized in the liver, some is absorbed through diet, especially one high in saturated fats.
HDL Cholesterol--High-density lipoproteins are believed to take cholesterol away from cells and transport it back to the liver for processing or removal. They have become known as the "good" cholesterol.
LDL Cholesterol--Low-density lipoproteins contain the greatest percentage of cholesterol and may be responsible for depositing cholesterol on the artery walls. For that reason, they are known as the "bad" cholesterol.
Cholesterol/HDL Ratio—This ratio is calculated by dividing the total cholesterol by the HDL cholesterol and is used for determining relative risk for developing cardiovascular heart disease.
Triglycerides—Triglycerides are fat in the blood responsible for providing energy to the cells of the body.
Protein, Total--Proteins are the most abundant compound in serum. The protein makeup of the individual is of important diagnostic significance because of protein's involvement in enzymes, hormones, and antibodies as well as osmotic pressure balance, maintaining acid-base balance, and as a reserve source of nutrition for the body's tissues and muscles.
Albumin, Serum--Albumin is the major constituent of serum protein (usually over 50%). It is manufactured by the liver from the amino acids taken from the diet. It helps in osmotic pressure regulation, nutrient transport, and waste removal.
Globulin, Total--Globulin, a larger protein than albumin, has many diverse functions such as, the carrier of some hormones, lipids, metals, and antibodies.
Albumin/Globulin Ratio--Calculated by dividing the albumin by the globulin.
Bilirubin, Total--A byproduct of the breakdown of hemoglobin from red blood cells in the liver, bilirubin is a good indication of the liver's function. Excreted into the bile, bilirubin gives the bile its pigmentation.
Alkaline Phosphatase--A body protein important in diagnosing proper bone and liver functions.
Lactate Dehydrogenase (LDH)--An enzyme found mostly in the heart, muscles, liver, kidney, brain, and red blood cells.
Aspartate Aminotransferase (AST or SGOT)--An enzyme found in skeletal and heart muscle, liver and other organs.
Alanine Aminotransferase (ALT or SGPT)—An enzyme found primarily in the liver.
GGT—Also known as Gamma-glutamyl transpeptidase, GGT helps detect liver and bile duct injury.
Blood Urea Nitrogen (BUN)—A by-product of protein metabolism eliminated through the kidneys.
Creatinine, Serum—Creatinine is the waste product of muscle metabolism. Its level is a reflection of the body's muscle mass.
Uric Acid—Another by-product of protein metabolism eliminated through the kidneys.
BUN/Creatinine—Ratio calculated by dividing the BUN by the Creatinine.
Glomerular Filtration (eGFR)—Provides an assessment of the filtering capacity of the kidney.
Iron, Total—Iron is necessary for the formation of some proteins, hemoglobin, myoglobulin, and cytochrome. Also, it is necessary for oxygen transport, cellular respiration, and peroxide deactivation.
Fluids, Electrolytes and Minerals
Chloride, Serum—Similar to sodium, it helps to maintain the body's electrolyte balance.
Potassium—Helps to control the nerves and muscles.
Sodium, Serum—One of the major salts in the body fluid; sodium is important in the body's water balance and the electrical activity of nerves and muscles.
Carbon Dioxide (CO2)—CO2 level is related to the respiratory exchange of carbon dioxide in the lungs; is part of the body's buffering system. Generally when used with other electrolytes, it is a good indicator of acidity and alkalinity.
Calcium—A mineral essential for development and maintenance of healthy bones and teeth. It is important also for the normal function of muscles, nerves and blood clotting.
Phosphorus—Together with calcium, it is essential for healthy development of bones and teeth. Associated with hormone imbalance, bone disease and kidney disease. It is found mainly in bones and teeth.
Glucose— Glucose, formed by the digestion of carbohydrates and the conversion of glycogen by the liver, is the primary source of energy for most cells. It is regulated by insulin, glucagon, thyroid hormone, liver enzymes, and adrenal hormones

Can an organic smoothie be unhealthy for you? The answer is YES! An organic smoothie may seem like a very healthy drink but not if you are having a reaction to one of the items used in the smoothie. What if you test positive for certain green or fruit or nut milk and you drink this type smoothie every day? Your body may go into a chronic inflammatory state and you suffer the related heath consequences.
A food sensitivity may help uncover which foods and other substances trigger chronic inflammation and its related health issues such as gastrointestinal, metabolic disorders and others.
The Alcat Food Sensitivity Test measures cellular reactions to over 450 substances.
Medical studies using the Alcat Test to guide diet have shown significant improvement of many common symptoms.
To date, the Alcat Test has helped over half a million people change their health! It is time to put some science into your grocery shopping!
An allergy is a reaction that triggers the release of antibodies that results in immediate symptom onset. A true food allergy causes an immune response that can affect multiple organs and in some cases, be severe or even life threatening. Food sensitivity symptoms are delayed and are typically limited to digestive problems, but they can lead to chronic inflammatory health issues.

Hemoglobin A1c (HgbA1c) With EAG
Fasting Required: No
Results: 1-2 Business Days
Test Description: This non-fasting test, also known as A1c, HbA1c, or Glycated hemoglobin, indicates how well you have controlled your diabetes over the last few months. Even though you may have some very high or very low blood glucose values, Hemoglobin A1C will give you a picture of the average amount of glucose in your blood over that time period. While the Hemoglobin A1C is the standard tool to determine blood sugar control for patients with diabetes, it is not a substitute for daily, routine blood glucose testing.
C-Reactive Protein, (CRP,hs)
DLS Regular Price: $45
Fasting Required: No
Results: 3-5 Business Days
Test Description: CRP, hs is a critical component of the immune system and can be predictive of future risk of heart attack, stroke, sudden cardiac death, and the development of peripheral arterial disease. Individuals with elevated levels of CRP have a risk about 2 to 3 times higher than the risk of those with low levels.
Fasting Required: Yes, 10-12 Hours
Results: 1-3 Business Days
Tests Included: Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (CMP-14) & Hemoglobin A1c
CMP-14: The Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (CMP-14) is a frequently ordered group of 14 laboratory tests that gives important information about the current status of your kidneys, liver, and electrolyte and acid/base balance as well as of your blood sugar and blood proteins. Abnormal results, and especially combinations of abnormal results, can indicate a problem that needs to be addressed.
HgA1C: This non-fasting test, also known as A1c, HbA1c, Glycohemoglobin, or Glycated hemoglobin, indicates how well you have controlled your diabetes over the last few months. Even though you may have some very high or very low blood glucose values, Hemoglobin A1C will give you a picture of the average amount of glucose in your blood over that time period. While the Hemoglobin A1C is the standard tool to determine blood sugar control for patients with diabetes, it is not a substitute for daily, routine blood glucose testing.
The following blood tests can help to determine the severity of the arthritis and which type of the disease you have.
Antinuclear Antibodies (ANA) Test
The Antinuclear Antibody (ANA) blood test is used to determine the cause and the appropriate treatment of arthritis and other autoimmune diseases.
C-Reactive Protein (CRP) Test
This blood test measures levels of CRP to help indicate if cases of inflammation or infection are occurring.
Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate Test (ESR or sed rate)
The ESR blood test is used to measure the degree of inflammation in the body.
Lyme Disease Antibodies Test
Get tested for Lyme disease with our fast antibody blood test. Lyme disease is caused by a bacterium called Borrelia burgdorferi, and is transmitted by ticks.
Rheumatoid Arthritis Test - Rheumatoid Factor (RF)
The rheumatoid factor (RF) blood test is commonly used for the diagnosis and prognosis of rheumatoid arthritis.
Another option is to have a complete Arthritis Panel $197 which includes:
C-Reactive Protein Qualitative: Used as a test for inflammatory diseases, infections, and neoplastic diseases. CRP is a more sensitive, rapidly responding indicator than ESR. CRP may be used to detect early postoperative wound infection and to follow therapeutic response to anti-inflammatory agents. Progressive increases correlate with increases of inflammation/injury.
Rheumatoid Factor: The test for rheumatoid factor (RA) is used to help diagnose rheumatoid arthritis. The test may also be used to help diagnose an arthritis-related condition called Sjögren’s syndrome. About 80% to 90% of patients with this syndrome have high amounts of RA in their blood.
ANA: Antinuclear Antibodies, is used to help diagnose systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) and drug-induced lupus, but may also be positive in cases of scleroderma, Sjögren’s syndrome, Raynaud’s disease, juvenile chronic arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, antiphospholipid antibody syndrome, autoimmune hepatitis, and many other autoimmune and non-autoimmune diseases. For this reason, SLE, which is commonly known as lupus, can be tricky to diagnose correctly. Because the ANA test result may be positive in a number of these other diseases, additional testing can help to establish a diagnosis of SLE. Your doctor may run other tests that are considered subsets of the general ANA test and that are used in conjunction with patient symptoms and clinical history to rule out a diagnosis of other autoimmune diseases.
Uric Acid: The uric acid test is used to learn whether the body might be breaking down cells too quickly or not getting rid of uric acid quickly enough. The test also is used to monitor levels of uric acid when a patient has had chemotherapy or radiation treatments.
Sedimentation Rate: A blood test which is used to screen for inflammation, cancer, and infection. A high sedimentation rate is found in a wide variety of infectious, inflammatory, and malignant diseases - the presence of an abnormality which needs further evaluation.
CMP-14: A broad screening test used to evaluate organ function and electrolyte balance as well as aid in the diagnosis of conditions such as diabetes, liver disease, and kidney disease. This test is also useful for people receiving treatment for conditions which affect the liver or kidneys.
Glucose-Blood sugar level, the most direct single test to uncover diabetes, may be used not only to identify diabetes, but also to evaluate how one controls the disease.
Bun (Urea Nitrogen)—Another by-product of protein metabolism eliminated through the kidneys. BUN is an indicator of kidney function.
Creatinine, Serum—An indicator of kidney function
Glomerular Filtration (eGFR)—Provides an assessment of the filtering capacity of the kidney.
Sodium—One of the major salts in the body fluid, sodium is important in the body's water balance and the electrical activity of nerves and muscles.
Potassium—Helps to control the nerves and muscles
Chloride—Similar to sodium, it helps to maintain the body's electrolyte balance
Carbon Dioxide, Total—Used to help detect, evaluate, and monitor electrolyte imbalances.
Calcium-A mineral essential for development and maintenance of healthy bones and teeth. It is important also for the normal function of muscles, nerves and blood clotting.
Protein, Total—Together with albumin, it is a measure of the state of nutrition in the body. Globulin, Total—A major group of proteins in the blood comprising the infection fighting antibodies.
Albumin—Serum one of the major proteins in the blood and a reflection of the general state of nutrition.
Albumin/Globulin Ratio—Calculated by dividing the albumin by the globulin
Bilirubin, Total—A chemical involved with liver functions. High concentrations may result in jaundice.
Alkaline Phosphatase—A body protein important in diagnosing proper bone and liver functions
Aspartate Aminotransferase (AST or SGOT)—an enzyme found in skeletal and heart muscle, liver and other organs. Abnormalities may represent liver disease.
Alanine Aminotransferase (ALT or SGPT)—an enzyme found primarily in the liver. Abnormalities may represent liver disease.
Complete Blood Count (CBC)- Used as a broad screening test to check for such disorders as anemia, infection, and many other diseases.

The winter months & shorter days can sure drop the bodies vitamin D level! Lower vitamin D levels mean higher risk for cardiovascular disease. We have so many studies that all point to vitamin D deficiency as a risk factor for heart disease, congestive heart failure, peripheral arterial disease, strokes, high blood pressure and diabetes.
The fact that Vitamin D acts as a hormone has been essentially not taught to patients in the conventional medical model. A quick scan of the science will tell you vitamin D is involved in regulating more than 200 genes throughout the body. It keeps abnormal cells from multiplying in breast tissue and colon tissues. As you get older you you absorb less vitamin D from diet and produce less vitamin D in the skin and if you are not going outside in the early mornings you are at risk for many diseases from low levels of vitamin D. If you are over weight or obese you are at risk for low vitamin D levels because fat cells absorb vitamin D and keep it from circulating throughout the bloodstream.
REMEMBER: Sunscreen will block the vitamin D so get out early in the morning for a long walk while the sun rays are not so intense. You could also try liquid sunscreen that is a favorite for our family. However, at the beach and swimming in the ocean we also combine it with sunscreen applied to the skin.

Description: This is a group of simple blood tests that reveal important information about the types, amount and distribution of the various types of fats (lipids) in the bloodstream.
Tests Included: Total Cholesterol, HDL Cholesterol, Triglycerides, LDL-Cholesterol (calculated), Cholesterol/HDL Ratio (calculated), Non-HDL Cholesterol (calculated)
Total cholesterol: This is the total amount of cholesterol in your blood.
Low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol: This is referred to as “bad” cholesterol, and too much of it can lead to heart attack, stroke, and atherosclerosis.
High-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol: This is referred to as “good” cholesterol because it helps remove LDL cholesterol from your blood.
Triglycerides: When you eat, your body converts the calories it doesn’t need into triglycerides, which are stored in your fat cells.
Your blood cholesterol level has a lot to do with your chances of getting heart disease. High blood cholesterol is one of the major risk factors for heart disease.
In fact, the higher your blood cholesterol level, the greater your risk for developing heart disease or having a heart attack. Heart disease is the number one killer of women and men in the United States. Each year, more than a million Americans have heart attacks, and about a half million people die from heart disease.
Early cancer detection through cancer screening blood tests can provide more options for fighting the disease. These blood tests check for specific markers such as Ca-125 and the prostate-specific antigen, which can determine diagnosis for ovarian cancer and prostate cancer respectively. Order today!
The liver is an organ that is part of the digestive system and serves many important functions that contribute to maintaining overall health. Some of the functions of the liver include filtering out harmful toxins in the body, synthesizing proteins, and producing enzymes needed for digestion.
Yearly blood testing of the liver is recommended for all adults and more frequent testing is recommended for individuals who are at a high risk for liver dysfunction, such as those who have a metabolic disorder, Reye’s syndrome, hepatitis B, or tuberculosis.
According to experts, young women in early menopause are under-diagnosed. Studies show 1 percent of women under the age of 40 and up to 5 percent under the age of 45 experience premature menopause. It is often overlooked by doctors because it's many symptoms can easily be mistaken for other conditions.
Symptoms of menopause include: missed periods, hot flashes, night sweats, sleeping problems, changes in mood and weight gain. If you are having menopausal symptoms, your doctor may order blood tests to help determine what exactly is going on and to rule out any other issues. Two of the most commonly ordered blood tests are FSH-Follicle Stimulating Hormone and Estradiol (E2).
FSH is considered the key test to determine whether or not you are in menopause. FSH levels rise when your ovaries stop producing enough estrogen. High FSH levels are indicative that your body is entering menopause. When your ovaries stop working, your Estradiol levels drop. Low Estradiol levels can also be caused by excessive exercise, low body fat and diminished ovarian reserve.
Most people don't know, but just like women men go through their own version of menopause also known as "andropause". It is caused by a decrease in testosterone levels. As men age their testosterone levels drop on average 1% per year after the age of 30. Unlike women, men are still able to have kids even into their 90's!
Symptoms of male menopause may include: fatigue, weakness, depression, and sexual problems, to name a few. The only way to detect male menopause (low testosterone) is through a blood test.

Testosterone is important to monitor because it is important for muscle and bone growth and sexual function but too much can affect your body negatively.
DHT is important because high results are linked with hair loss and prostate problems. If the levels are low, this could be a cause of low libido.
Infertility affects about 1 in 8 people, 7.3 million people in the U.S. alone. That number is 12% of childbearing aged women; however, infertility affects both men and women.
If you are unable to become pregnant after a year of unprotected sex (or 6 months for women over 35), an evaluation is appropriate. Depending on each couple's individual situation, certain blood tests may be recommended as part of an infertility assessment.
Blood tests that might be ordered include day 3 Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH), Luteinizing Hormone (LH), Estradiol (E2), AMH, Prolactin, Testosterone Total, Progesterone, Thyroxin (T4) and Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH).

Today we find increasing statistics regarding Autism Spectrum Disorders.Traditionally, the diagnosis of autism has been based on the observation of behavior, and treatment focused primarily on alleviating challenging behaviors. However, there is a very real biomedical component to the disorder in which underlying medical issues often cause or contribute to autistic behavior. Some of the most common problems include gastrointestinal (GI) overgrowth of Candida and Clostridia, inability to detoxify environmental toxins, and development of food intolerances and/or allergies. These physical and environmental factors limit the nutrients available to the brain and body, resulting in damage to cellular, metabolic, and central nervous system functionality. Every individual with autism exhibits unique behavioral and cognitive symptoms with varying degrees of severity. Common symptoms can also include eczema, diarrhea, constipation, rashes, dark eye circles, and visible stomach pain.
ORGANIC ACIDS TEST
Reducing or eliminating yeast overgrowth can be an effective method of reducing autistic symptoms. Microbial overgrowth can be measured by urine organic acid analyses of yeast and bacterial metabolites. The Organic Acids Test quantifies other useful markers of energy cycle and neurological function, as well as nutritional adequacy. The test is also designed to identify some rare genetic diseases and indirect indicators of methylation problems. When Candida grows out of balance, it can disrupt areas of the intestinal wall, producing toxins and leading to leaky gut syndrome.
Candida toxins can depress the immune system. An inflammatory immune response and multiple food sensitivities can result from the leaky gut. Many children on the autism spectrum have an overgrowth of certain Clostridia species, which produces a compound called HPHPA (3-(3-hydroxyphenyl)- 3-hydroxypropionic acid). HPHPA may disrupt dopamine metabolism by interfering with the enzyme dopamine beta-hydroxylase. HPHPA is a potent toxin with profound neurological effects in autism, and can lead to moodiness, tantrums, extreme anxiety, aggression, and /or selfinjurious behavior.

Meningococcal vaccines are now available that help protect against all three serogroups of meningococcal disease that are most commonly seen in the United States.
You can help keep your pre-teens and teens healthy and active by making sure they get the vaccines needed to protect them against serious, sometimes deadly diseases.
Even if vaccinated as an infant, there are vaccines recommended specifically for adolescents.
The National Meningitis Association (NMA) is a nonprofit organization founded by parents whose children have died or live with permanent disabilities from meningococcal disease. We are dedicated to educating families, medical professionals and others about meningococcal disease and its prevention.
Meningococcal disease, sometimes called bacterial meningitis, is a potentially fatal bacterial infection that may cause death or disability within hours. However, it can be prevented through vaccination.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends meningococcal vaccination for all children at 11-12 with a booster at age 16.
If you just cannot get the "get-up-and-go" feeling it may be your Vitamin D Levels. Many chronic health conditions have an underlying common denominator of vitamin D insufficiency. Determining and monitoring vitamin D levels is especially important for assessing those with metabolic and cardiovascular conditions. Vitamin D deficiency can affect people of all ages.
Many diseases are associated with low levels of vitamin D such as neurological conditions such as multiple sclerosis, and cognitive decline. Metabolic disorders such as Type 1 and 2 diabetes as well as many Cardiovascular diseases such as atherosclerosis and coronary artery disease. Some of the very worrisome diseases that really could be prevented include Gastrointestinal disorders, Cancer, Respiratory conditions, and musculoskeletal disorders.
Low levels of Vitamin D can be easily corrected and you will begin to feel amazingly better once the levels are corrected. Click here for this months Vitamin D sale!
