How would you like to use a system of Blood Chemistry and CBC analysis that was guarenteed to:
Help you get more from the tests you are already performing?
Make your blood chemistry testing an indispensable screening tool?
Increase your competency with blood chemistry analysis?
Show how a regular blood test can be used as a prognostic marker of dysfunction?

Most doctors use the conventional reference ranges for their blood chemistry and CBC interpretation. Unfortunately these ranges are designed to identify and diagnose disease states and pathology. People who fall within the reference ranges are assumed to have no disease and are considered clinically "normal". We know that most of our patients are by no means normal, so why do we use an interpretive method that is based on that assumption?

This book presents a diagnostic system of blood chemistry and CBC analysis that focuses on physiological function as a marker of health. By looking for optimum function we increase our ability to detect dysfunctions long before disease manifests. Conventional lab testing becomes a truly preventative and prognostic tool.

Includes:
In-depth coverage of 52 blood tests with optimal and functional values
62 patterns of functional disorders that most physicians do not get from normal reference ranges
11 nutrient deficiencies that can be seen in blood chemistry and CBC tests
36 special topics and in-office tests
Full section of patterns that exist between multiple tests

Review:

Blood Chemistry and CBC Analysis rarely makes it off my desktop. It saves me precious time nearly every practice day. -- Nancy Dunne ND, President American Association of Naturopathic Physicians

I would highly recommend this book to practitioners in traditional medicine venturing into the complimentary field of medicine. -- Dr. Khush Mark, Positive health- Issue 92, Sept. 2003

This book should be considered the preferred textbook of holistically-oriented blood chemistry analysis. -- John Teta ND, Townsend Letter for Doctors and Patients, January 2004
