Dr. Waters offers a science based approach to nutritional healthcare. Many problems show up in the blood long before you actually "feel" symptoms. Did you know you can have only 20% liver or kidney function left and still have virtually no symptoms? How do you know if you're truly healthy? Certain tests, when read properly, will indicate whether or not you are progressing toward a serious illness, such as cancer, liver, heart or many other diseases.
A complete Nutritional Blood Analysis will determine:
- How healthy you really are
- What problems are just beginning
- What diseases you have
- What dietary and lifestyle changes you should make
- If the supplements you are taking are working
Starting with a consultation, Dr. Waters will determine the type of testing that should be done. Using bloodwork and other diagnostic tools, an in-depth analysis of your body function will be performed. The testing will show where the problem areas are occurring or just developing. Your detailed report will explain your test findings, as well as the nutrient and dietary recommendations based upon your test results.
Our natural health solutions are based on scientific and objective testing including blood, urine and hair. The Science Based Nutrition™ report provides individual, drug-free recommendations to promote optimum health based on imbalances and dysfunction identified from the test results.
No general screening test is more efficient, effective and affordable than a comprehensive blood chemistry panel. It allows Dr. Waters to establish a baseline of biomarkers to track your health and nutritional needs. Getting a blood test is essential to understanding your current health.
The Science Based Nutrition™ program is an innovative, science-based look at nutritional strengths and weaknesses through an individual's blood test and analysis of hair, urine, and stool. This scientific approach can offer a clear plan for your optimum health.
Most blood tests are compared to "Normal Ranges" via your results report. If you are within the "Normal Range" you will most likely be told you are normal, which can be confused with being healthy. It does not necessarily mean you are healthy, as many people incorrectly believe.
Why not? The problem lies in how Normal Ranges are determined.
Normal Ranges are determined by taking approximately 100 to 200 people who tested recently with a particular lab (yes, they are determined by each individual lab and not a centralized agency). These results are then averaged – this is the middle of the Normal Range. The high and low sides of the Normal Range will be two standard deviations from the average.
Unfortunately, most of the people’s results used in these calculations are flawed because they were having blood tests run in the first place because they already had a health problem!
Does it make sense to compare your blood test results to averages taken from people who were already experiencing a symptom? No. That is why being "normal" is not good enough! Normal blood test scores simply mean you are not yet as sick as the other people used to determine the normal range.
How does the program work?
Dr. Waters will determine what testing needs to be performed during your consultation. More complex or serious conditions will likely require more extensive testing. The overall cost is a pittance compared to the medical costs and drugs and considering that you may be sicker or dead if you continue with the medical treatments and drugs that are not working.
How long does it take to get the test results back?
If you do the testing through your doctor's office, it usually takes no more than two weeks to get all of the test results back and your personalized detailed report completed!
Can I get my blood work done through another health professional?
Yes, however, it would be prudent for you to check pricing thoroughly. Many patients find the cost is less if you get it through a Science Based Nutrition™ health professional. If you decide to go through your insurance company for reimbursement, the test findings will go on your permanent record and will affect future premiums and ratings.
What makes SBN trained health professionals different from "nutritionists" or general "doctors"?
The Science Based Nutrition™ analysis and recommendations are based on scientific and objective testing. Some of the diagnostic testing used are blood testing, toxic and elemental hair testing, food allergy testing (ALCAT and Elisa), DMSA urinary challenge, DEXA bone density scan, and EKG. There are a lot of very questionable 'energy' techniques to determine diseases and conditions including the many variations of muscle testing. Studies have shown they are no better than just guessing. We get great results because we use objective testing methods.
We also have a higher standard in Healthy Ranges.
How long will it take before I start to see improvement in my health problems?
Understand that we don't have a cure for your problem whether it is a rash, diabetes or cancer. Our goal is to get you healthier. Progress is the key and generally patients see some definite, objective improvement within 2 months. If you committ to following the program for 2 months, it is highly unusual that progress/improvement is not seen. Then the goal is to keep you improving on a consistent basis.
