#5 – Understanding Your Bloodwork

When you have bloodwork done and you get your results back, what do your results tell you about the true state of your health? Not much, right?

But your bloodwork – even a basic set of bloodwork markers – actually has a LOT to tell us about the state of your health.

#3 – Essential Blood Tests to Get Regularly

What I recommend is to get certain essential blood tests done regularly, and then have them analyzed thoroughly and carefully through the lens of optimizing health, to catch problems early on so you can begin to turn things around asap (or avoid them in the first place!)
