Hopefully you found your way to this month’s blog post through my brand new monthly newsletter! If not, don’t worry - you can totally still subscribe and receive all the great content!
If you didn’t see my newsletter yet, here’s the details: every month I will send out an exclusive email of my top favorite finds that month. These will be things like food prep hacks, recipes, nutrition headlines or tips, products or supplements that I’ve tried, podcasts, inspirational quotes or stories that I think are worth sharing!
I’m really excited to have you be a part of this new featured content, so please pass it along to anyone you think would benefit from it!
So if you’ve been keeping up with me for a little bit you’re probably wondering what is new and exciting at PN! I’m glad you asked.
In addition to food sensitivity testing, I now offer four different laboratory tests through Spectracell. The new tests are nutritional (micronutrient), cardiovascular, hormones and thyroid, and genetic testing. Below is a description of each, as stated on their website.
Nutritional Testing: Micronutrient testing measures how micronutrients are actually functioning within your white blood cells. These tests allow for nutritional assessment of clinical conditions, general wellness and the prevention of chronic diseases such as arthritis, cancer, cardiovascular risk, diabetes, immunological disorders and metabolic disorders.
CardioMetabolic Testing: Poor blood sugar regulation and unhealthy triglyceride and lipoprotein levels often present long before a diagnosis of Type 2 Diabetes. This test helps define your risk for atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD), progression toward Type 2 Diabetes, and inflammation.
Hormone & Thyroid testing: A comprehensive (male and female) hormone panel that reveals the overall state of hormonal balance. Like nutrients, hormones influence all aspects of health and disease - mood, sleep, metabolism, immunity, heart health and appearance. An imbalance of one hormone can alter other hormones, so a comprehensive look at hormone status is key.
Thyroid hormones regulate functions like metabolism, emotions and thinking. I also test several proteins that affect thyroid function as well as antibodies to thyroid which can detect autoimmunity (when the immune system attacks healthy tissue) and your levels of cortisol (the stress hormone).
Genetic Testing: Telomeres, Apolipoprotein E, MTHFR, and Factor V Leiden Prothrombin. Telomeres are sections of genetic material at the end of each chromosome. As a cell ages, its telomeres become shorter. Eventually, the telomeres become too short to allow cell replication, the cell stops dividing and will ultimately die - a normal biological process. This test can determine the length of your telomeres in relation to your age. *Fun fact: a plant-based diet helps prevent telomere shortening!
Next month I have a super exciting and exclusive announcement about a passion project I’ve been working on. I will be emailing you about this awesome launch in the next few weeks, and you won’t want to miss the part about the incredible discount that I’m offering for only a limited time - trust me!
