“Do your part” seems to be the prevailing rhetoric of the last year. What does it actually mean?
For me, I don’t look outside for defining who I am and how I want to “do my part”. I look inside. I begin with me. What is my body telling me.
The best way that I can “do my part” is to be the healthiest I can be. To unburden the health (AKA disease) care system, is to not be a part of it.
To do that I practice the prevention lifestyle (see the latest Today is The Day podcast). Part of that involves regular testing. I’ve addressed the importance of vitamin D testing before (see VitaminDHub.com).
But once a year I do a full “workup”. I test all of my nutrients, gut health, mitochondrial health, fatty acids, toxic elements, and amino acids. These are tests that can’t be ordered from a conventional medical doctor, because they don’t DIAGNOSE. They catch imbalances way before they grow into a disease.
This is the power of functional nutrition. This is what I teach in the certification program (FunctionalNutrition.com). This is what I teach my clients. And this is what should be taught to every person the planet. Join the movement. You’re needed.
