Functional Blood Chemistry Analyses from a Nutritional Perspective


As a Real Food Therapy client you may bring your most recent blood test results to Karen for a nutritional analysis.  You may also request new blood work from your doctor or order a Comprehensive Wellness Panel directly from Karen at Real Food Therapy.  If you order your blood test through your doctor, your cost for the panel will vary depending on whether or not your insurance covers the lab work.  If you order your blood test through Real Food Therapy, you will pay the lab's regular price for the the test.


Once your blood chemistry test results arrive, Karen will provide you with a complete analysis of your blood chemistry from a nutritional perspective at your next scheduled appointment.  In addition, Karen will email you her dietary, lifestyle, and supplement recommendations based on your test results. Depending on your results, Karen may either refer you to a doctor, recommend additional testing, or suggest a long-term plan for using dietary, supplemental and lifestyle supports to help you achieve and maintain optimal health.


If you have any pre-existing medical conditions or if any medical conditions are suspected, Karen may work with your doctor as part of your wellness team to address the nutritional aspects of your wellness plan.


Throughout the course of your nutritional therapy, Karen will monitor your symptoms and recommend follow-up blood work as needed.  Karen always considers your blood chemistry holistically and within the context of your symptoms, case history, diet, and lifestyle.


Functional Blood Chemistry Analyses from a nutritional perspective with Karen at Real Food Therapy present a great opportunity for you to learn what to you can do nutritionally to support normal function, cultivate optimal health, and uncover the real you!
