Let’s face it, lab tests can get expensive. However, sometimes we need them to get to the root of a health issue.
9 times out of 10, I have clients start with my three favorite tests that are easy, affordable, and can be done in the comfort of your own home. They provide a ton of reliable information as to where you can start to heal yourself.
Test #1 – The pH Acid/Alkaline Test
pH is a marker of how acid or alkaline our body chemistry is. You see, the pH of our blood never changes… ever. If it did, we would die. I know it sounds dramatic, but it's true.
So, it's a great idea to pull out this test a few times a year to have a look at the pH of your morning urine (both the first and second time you pee) and your saliva to see how your body is working just to keep you alive (let alone allow for vibrant health). This test can give us more insight, specifically, on things like weight loss issues, chronic pain and inflammation, cancer prevention, and our risk for osteoporosis.
If you are acidic, it's no bueno – and there's a 100% chance your body is leaching precious minerals from your bones to keep your blood balanced and keep you alive. Have a look at my acid-alkaline balance blog if you want to know more about which foods to eat to keep you alkaline.
Test #2 – The Candida Test
This test is for those of you who are chronically exhausted and struggling with digestion. It's a candida test to see if yeast is out of balance in your system. This doesn't have to mean that you have a vaginal yeast infection. This could be caused by systemic yeast in the intestinal tract.
Sound gross? Don't worry, as a result of our modern lifestyle, about 50% of us or more are struggling with candida (though most don't know it). If you come up positive, you should definitely head over to read the blog I wrote about candida – how you get it and how to get rid of it.
Test #3 – The Temperature Test For Your Thyroid*
Last, but certainly not least, is the oh-so-reliable (just as reliable as blood work!) lab test for your thyroid and metabolism function. Are you having trouble losing weight even though you are restricting calories? Can't sleep? Sleep too much? Mental fog? Feel cold all the time? Constipated? Let's check your thyroid.
Watch the segment to find out how easily you can get this information with just a thermometer and your pulse. Running low? Don't worry, I gotcha. I'm all about empowering you to know everything you need to know to heal yourself.
I give more details than you can imagine in my blog called “The Thyroid Uncovered” and if you'd rather watch a video than read a blog, check out this Randy & Christa Show episode, all about improving thyroid health. Head over there and fill your head with all you need to heal yourself and be sure to let us know how we can support you on your journey.
Thank you for stopping by. Wishing you a great, healthy week ahead!
