What are your biomarkers? Why are they so important?
All new cars today are pretty much a computer on wheels. Gone are the days that when something goes wrong on your car that you can fix it yourself. There are simply way too many electronics.
Your car is loaded with sensors and as soon as any of them detects any problem, your check engine light goes on.
There are so many things that can trigger the check engine light that in order to figure out what’s going on, a mechanic has to plug a little computer into the car.
Once plugged in, the computer spits out a code which then tells the mechanic what’s the cause of the problem.
Sometimes the silliest little thing, like your gas cap not being tightened enough can trigger the check engine light. Other times it might be a much more serious problem. Both cause the same check engine light to go on.
Your body kind of works the same way.
Your ‘check engine’ light goes on all the time. Low energy is a check engine light. Poor sleep is another. Digestive issues, skin problems, weight gain, and pain are other types of check engine lights.
When you have these symptoms, your body is telling you that something is wrong. Most of the time, these check engine lights are not warning you of a disease…
But, left untreated, they could easily become a big problem.
You don’t go from being healthy one minute and diseased the next. It doesn’t work that way, and that’s a very good thing.
As you move from health towards disease, your body gives clues.
And These clues are your ‘check engine’ light.
Modern medicine doesn’t do well with check engine lights. Their testing is designed to detect diseases, not prevent them.
By the time something shows up in their testing, you’ve already had a problem for a long time.
Here’s a story that I hear everyday in my practice:
You notice a dip in your energy, or you’re not quite feeling like you used to, so you decide to visit your family doctor. Your doctor orders some routine tests and your results come back ‘normal’. She tells you that everything is ‘fine’.
This can be frustrating, but it’s very common. Most people with low energy or who don’t feel well have normal blood test results.
How can a blood test be normal when a person isn’t feeling normal?
This is one reasons why I developed my Biomarker Testing System.
When someone with low energy gets their biomarker tested, something always shows up. It may be their inflammation status, Nitric oxide levels, Free Radical Status, Cortisol or any one of the other biomarkers we check.
The advantage of having your biomarkers tested is that once a problem is detected, it can be specifically addressed.
If you’re suffering with:
- Low energy
- Hormonal imbalances
- Sleeping problems
- Digestive issues
- Memory problems
- Joint or muscle pain
- Skin issues
Then your check engine light is on, your body is giving you clues. Now is the time to get your biomarkers tested.
