Many people have misconceptions about blood work. Having your blood work analysed can be useful for everyone. It's not just for those with illness or disease, but for anyone wanting to know their body's specific needs. Everyone's body is different and we all have different needs and concerns. Blood analysis allows a doctor to see if you are deficient in anything and where your nutrition is lacking. This can be helpful for learning how to improve your diet and level out any deficiencies you might have. Blood analysis can also help a doctor see if you are at risk for a certain illness or disease (for example, looking at cholesterol levels for heart disease). If you are trying to get pregnant, it can be a helpful tool for seeing what you need to create a healthy, fertile environment for a baby to develop in. Get a blood panel to make sure your body has a balance of all the essential vitamins and minerals you need!

This is the most common response I hear any time I ask to see a patient’s blood work. They have been told that everything is normal, yet they still feel awful. How could this be the case?

Archetype uses "optimal" blood values which are smaller in a acceptable range but are compared other lab values to determine the cause of your issue..
