A Wellness Analysis is designed to take a closer look at your health from the cellular level, with the overall goal of identifying specific deficiencies or problems for improved, more precise care. The Wellness Analysis through blood work checks for functional nutritional deficiencies at the cellular level, markers of disease-related inflammation, hormone function and balance, and any food allergies or sensitivities.
Finding out the status of these important aspects of your health can help Dr. Heller and his team develop a more targeted treatment approach designed to help you minimize potential health risks and better manage any current conditions.
The micronutrient panel portion of the Wellness Analysis is a comprehensive nutritional analysis that looks for any nutritional deficiency at the cellular level. Essentially, it’s an assessment of how well your body uses micronutrients, the vitamins and minerals required for the production of hormones, enzymes, and other substances that support good health. Chronic or significant deficiencies can affect your overall wellness and increase your risk of disease.
A few of the micronutrients included in the panel are:
The markers panel is designed to measure your body’s inflammatory markers, with an overall goal of finding out if you have any hidden inflammation that might indicate the beginnings of disease or possible disease risk. Although inflammation is an important part of injury response, immune system function, and overall health, ongoing inflammation — which may occur without any outward symptoms or signs — is a major risk factor in chronic disease development.
This panel evaluates your body’s reaction to food at the cellular level in order to discover so-called problem foods, or those that you may be allergic or sensitive to. Food allergies and sensitivities are often a hidden cause of complex health issues, including unexplained weight gain, digestive problems, chronic headaches or migraines, eczema, and even asthma. Uncovering any allergies and sensitivities can help you take control of your health through your diet.
Your endocrine system produces the hormones that are so vital to your physical and mental health: Hormones help control energy levels, growth and development, reproduction, and internal balance and stress, among other things. A poorly functioning endocrine system can result in hormonal imbalances that lead to mood shifts, weight gain, bowel dysfunction, sleep issues, skin problems, and infertility. The hormone panel is designed to uncover any shortcomings in your endocrine system, so they can be properly addressed.
