The clients that I work with are busy.
Most don’t have the time or interest to use a trial and error method to figure out what works best for them.
Plus, with something as serious as their health, they don’t want to take any chances…
And when it comes to your heart or cardiovascular health, you could argue it’s one of the more important health markers to look at.
But, simply looking at your cholesterol levels isn’t enough.
Look at These 2 Markers
I can’t recommend enough checking your blood homocysteine and C-reactive protein (CRP) levels every 6-12 months.
Of course, those are only two inflammatory markers to look for, but it’s a start. Your PCP can also add them to any blood draw panel, so it’s pretty easy to run the next time you’re looking at your cholesterol.
But did you know there’s an at-home Functional Medicine test that allows you to look deeper in your cardiovascular health from an inflammatory standpoint.
What Are Your Levels of Inflammation?
What this simple blood drop card looks for is your levels of inflammation based on Omega-6 to Omega-3 fats.
The higher your Omega-6s vs Omega-3s the more prostaglandin series 2 activity (PGE2) is running rampant in your body (think inflammation).
The ideal ratio is estimated at 2/3:1 Omega-6s to Omega-3s, but from a health standpoint you’re looking for a 5:1 or better ratio.
Here’s my favorite part of this lab –
Research shows that if you have a 9% or greater saturation rate in your blood of Omega-3s, then you’re 90% less likely to die from sudden cardiac death.*
(Please re-read that line above – it’s an amazing statistic.)
The reason why this statistic exists is because plaque or cholesterol does not tell the whole picture.
And that’s because if your arteries can’t expand due to inflammation (too much Omega-6s) then you’re far more likely to have a cardiovascular event.
So, by increasing your Omega-3 levels to balance your Omega-6s your overall cardiovascular and health profile should improve.
This same test can be used to help inflammatory muscle/joint pain, skin, nervous system issues, energy, mood, and much more…
Using a fairly inexpensive lab like this that you can do right at home, is what I consider the future of personalized medicine.
It’s important to take control of your own health.
Completing an at-home mail-in test like this Omega-3 test is something I recommend to many of the people I care for in my practice and something you may want to look into for yourself…
And, if you’re currently suffering from any cardiovascular, mood, skin, pain, or inflammation based health concern, I highly recommend completing this lab today.
Either way, I did want to make sure you knew it existed and how to access this information if you or a family member could benefit from it.
