Knowledge is power when it comes to your health
When you go see your doctor – either for a routine checkup or to get a diagnosis for a particular symptom – chances are pretty good your doctor will recommend a blood test. Blood tests are incredibly valuable in the medical world, not just for diagnosis, but also for prevention.
There are a lot of unknowns when it comes to your health and wellness, especially when you’re not exhibiting symptoms and don’t have any family history to worry about, but it’s actually very important to identify risk factors or other issues as early as possible, and blood testing is one of the best ways to do that.
Blood testing process overview
When you book a blood test with 10X Health, the process starts with a quick blood draw, either at one of our 10X Health locations or at any LabCorp location across the country.
After a sample has been collected and returned to our lab, our team of experts will thoroughly analyze your blood by looking at 64 unique biomarkers. These biomarkers will provide a complete snapshot of your current health and tell us a lot of specific information, too.
Once we have all the data we need, we’ll put together a highly personalized protocol, which shares all the results from your test along with specific takeaways and recommendations to optimize your health.
What comes next is largely up to you! We will provide you with all the tools you need to 10X your health, and with some time and dedication, you can experience life-changing results.
What you can learn from blood testing
Blood testing has come a long way over the years, and you can find a blood test for just about anything. What’s unique about the 10X blood test is the pure breadth of information you’ll get and the detail of that information.
For example, we can tell you how well (or poorly) your organs, like your liver, kidneys, pancreas, and thyroid, are functioning, the exact levels of specific vitamins flowing in your bloodstream, and how hydrated you are. Our tests will also show a full hormone panel and your complete blood count, which can both provide clues to identify certain diseases or possible risks of developing diseases.
Why you should get blood testing
There are a few key reasons why we often recommend blood testing as the first step for potential clients that want to start their journey to better health:
Knowing About Your Body: A big reason why blood testing is so important is simply that knowing what’s happening in your body (and how to improve it) can be a powerful motivator. Blood testing can put a reason behind common symptoms you may be feeling and identify your risk for developing certain diseases in your lifetime, allowing you to take real, data-driven actions.
Identifying the Cause of Symptoms: Many of us have lived our lives without identifying the root cause of issues we see every day, like food cravings, feeling anxious, lacking motivation and energy, and others. But a blood test can tell you exactly why you’re experiencing certain symptoms and, more importantly, what you can do to improve them.
Optimization: Chances are, your body is not running as well as it could be, and blood testing identifies the ways in which you can make your body more efficient and effective at carrying out key processes. Things like treating vitamin deficiencies with IV therapy or recharging your cells through red light therapy are just a few of the ways we can target those inefficiencies head-on and improve.
The power of blood and gene testing together
While blood testing can give you a lot of wonderful information about your body and your health over time, we also often recommend a gene test at the same time, because your genes can tell us slightly different information, and the two tests complement each other well.
What’s more, your genes don’t change over time, so you can take a single gene test and have all you need to know for life!
No matter what stage you’re at in your health journey, a blood test is a great way to learn more about your body, why it is the way it is, and how specifically to make it better. If you’re ready to get started, we’re ready to help! Schedule your first blood test today.
