Over the last 15 years, I have come across 3 health care technologies that are game changes. When it comes to health this means they provide very precise and important information that relates to a large segment of the population, which I can very specifically recommend steps to influence in a positive way.
One of these was the Heart Scan, one was the Omega Quant/Omega 3 Index Test and the most recent is BrainSpan. I am extremely excited about BrainSpan. This test is used to Measure, Track and Optimize your Brain Health! However, as you will see below, this is about much more than just Brain Health. Additionally, the science behind it is excellent and thoroughly established.
Besides measuring the most important Fatty Acid Balances for brain cells and the health of all cells, it is also measuring Memory Capacity, Processing Speed, Sustained Attention and Cognitive Flexibility.
This test also provides key information letting us know if you are receiving maximum protection from Omega 3's for reducing your risk of Sudden Cardiac Death by as much as 90%.
I consider this test The Single Most Important blood test for overall health!
The results from this test directs us to steps that will optimize your Omega 3 supplementation, which can affect your inflammatory state, immune health, hormonal health, risk of stroke, risk of future dementia, resilience to concussion, and mood regulation.
From the list below you can see why Omega-3's are critical, and at the top of my list of Essential Nutrients.
Here is a partial list of conditions associated with Omega-3 Fatty Acid Deficiencies: Acne, Allergies, Alzheimer's, Angina, Anxiety and Depression, Atherosclerosis, Arthritis, Asthma, Auto-immune Conditions, Behavioral Disorders, Brain Injury, Breast Cancer and Breast Cysts, Numerous other Cancers, Dementia, Diabetes, Eczema, Heart Disease, High Blood Pressure, Hyperactivity and ADHD, Acute and Chronic Infections, Immune Deficiencies, Inflammatory Conditions, Intestinal Disorders, Kidney Disease, Learning Disorders, Leukemia, Lupus, Menopausal Symptoms, Mental Illness, MS, Neurological Disease, Obesity, Parkinson's Disease, Post Viral Fatigue, Psoriasis, Schizophrenia, Stroke and Vision Disorders.
The test is very reasonably priced at $145. That includes a follow up visit with me to go over your results. Our family plan, as this test is important for everyone over 8, brings the price down to $125 per test for a family of 3 or more.
The best way to go about taking the test is to just call the office and schedule a time to do it there. We have you use our iPad and then it is over and done right then and there.
As the results and follow up steps to reach ideal levels of Omega 3 fatty acids are so important, please share this information with friends and family. We can do this test for non-patients.
