Schedule a biomarker health screening to practice preventive medicine and to receive appropriate treatment when necessary–it could save your life. Most of us don’t seek medical attention until we have bothersome symptoms, but this isn’t responsible living. “Health professionals administer preventive screenings and services to assess and reduce your risk for diseases and conditions such as high blood pressure. Making sure you’re up to date on preventive services is one of the most important things you can do to stay healthy,” said Dr. Anand Parekh, deputy assistant secretary for health in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, to the American Public Health Association.
Understanding the Power of Biomarkers for Disease
Biomarker testing for genetically-based disease offers an opportunity to get the jump on disease before they move into full-blown action. Earlier detection of chronic disease allows for faster treatment and risk reduction of disease.
The Beginning of Chronic Disease Development
Unhealthy eating, high stress, weight gain, poor sleep, and medication overload–in addition to the daily load of environmental toxins that we are challenged with daily–create inflammation, cholesterol imbalances, blood sugar imbalances, and nutritional deficiencies. This is the beginning of chronic disease development. Discover what your risk for chronic disease development is to improve your quality of life now and in the future.
What’s Included in the Biomarker Health Screening?
To better identify your health status, we begin with a 90-minute consultation with our nutritionist and review your lab work. Lab work will include the following tests:
- Aggressive cardiovascular risk screening: extended lipid panels looking at LDL particle numbers and size, oxidated stress markers
- Inflammatory markers
- Genetic markers
- Vitamin D, B12, Folate, Omega 3
- Complete hormonal evaluation: extensive thyroid, adrenal, sex hormone and insulin
This information will empower us with what we need to develop a personalized diet and lifestyle plan to help you stay healthy.
Disease Prevention is the Goal
Our health screenings are designed to help those that are in search of disease prevention and provident living. If you have acute conditions, they will be handled differently, outside of the health screening.
Disease prevention is supported by dedicating oneself to healthy eating, exercise, sleep, and by eliminating harmful substances from our diet like alcohol and tobacco.
Establishing healthy eating habits is one of the foundational steps for protecting your health, preventing chronic disease and eliminating symptoms you may already have. Balanced Well-Being Healthcare can help you start on the path to healthy eating with a visit with our nutritionist. All new patient packages help align diet with individualized treatment plans. We have plans for youth and adults for healthier eating. Individually designed treatment plans for diet, nutritional supplements and lifestyle changes are made according to your lab results and specific needs.
