While the Holistic Blood Chemistry Patterns Manual teaches you how to assess and interpret the biochemistry of particular analytes, the Blood Chemistry Patterns Guide outlines the typical patterns often seen in various diagnoses.
Used together, these manuals will help you understand and identify the most challenging illnesses we often see in Functional Medicine.
What's inside this bundle?
Have confidence in interpreting blood chemistry. Learn from Dr. Lundell who has been studying laboratory medicine for over 15 years. This book is a culmination of many years and thousands of hours of both clinical and academic research. This is one book you will reference on a daily basis in your practice.
Blood chemistry is one of the most misunderstood and under-utilized clinical tools. Interpreting blood chemistry correctly requires an in depth understanding of what each analyte is and the conditions that can alter the status of that analyte. This lab manual does not just give you a set of high and low differentials. It teaches you to think like a pathologist, understanding the biochemistry of each analyte, what the optimal ranges are from an evidence based, not population-based statistical average. It will also teach you how to look for other analytes that could be indicators of pathology and how to see the big picture. One should never make a diagnosis based on one analyte, but rather, if there is truly something off in the physiology, multiple analytes will validate your diagnosis. Functional considerations and what you are most likely to see in your practice are given for each analyte. Blood chemistry is essential to a nutritional/functional medicine practice as one of the best way to help your patients.
Blood chemistry, when properly utilized, can uncover hidden abnormalities and can detect illness long before clinical symptoms may manifest. This makes nutritional blood chemistry truly preventive.
This book is a companion guide to be used in conjunction with Dr. Lundell’s Holistic Blood Chemistry Manual.
The following laboratory patterns are meant to give the practitioner general trends in interpreting blood work and making assessments about the overall condition of the patient.
These are not absolutes, and treating every patient as an individual is paramount. Very few people will fit these patterns exactly as they are written. However, the helpfulness of these patterns will become apparent as one begins to run labs, interpret them from a functional perspective and attempts to connect the dots (see patterns among several analytes), rather than make a “diagnosis” of illness based on a single laboratory analyte.
