As Dr. Prather says, "If you don't test, you don't know." Proper diagnostics are key to getting to the root cause of your health condition so that the doctor knows which direction to go. In this episode, you'll discover:
--The three tests you should have every single year to find out what's going on in your body.
--The difference in training and focus on bloodwork between Dr. Prather and the average Medical Doctor.
--Why Dr. Prather often notices abnormalities in his patients' bloodwork when a patient's Medical Doctor describes them as "normal".
--The Prather Profile comprehensive blood analysis that covers "every aspect of your health" and is recommended annually for everyone.
--The story of a 12-year-old girl who was struggling in school and having Attention Deficit problems. But after discovering low iron in her blood tests, she had a complete turnaround after just a couple of days of iron supplementation.
--Why an annual blood test can help prevent diseases like cancer and heart disease as those diseases are developing long before they are diagnosed.
--What is included in The Prather Profile Blood Analysis, and how it checks every organ system.
--How too LOW cholesterol can be more dangerous than high cholesterol, and why high cholesterol is "anti-aging". (Plus, why the HDL and LDL ratio is what you should be looking at instead of the overall number.)
--The connection between an improperly-functioning liver and hormonal imbalances. (And how hot flashes in women can be eliminated when the liver is balanced out.)
--How Dr. Prather almost never finds a patient with a correctly-working hormone system. (And how patients can eliminate anti-depressants and anti-anxiety medications once the root cause imbalance is dealt with.)
