Blood Chemistry

The blood is one of the most effective ways to get to the bottom of any health issue.  At Life Discovery we believe that proper health begins with proper nutrition.  Functional blood chemistry reviews help to compare us to a normal healthy person, instead of a mathematical equation set aside by a laboratory.  There is so much to learn about our bodies, each one of us is different, but by looking for function instead of pathology we get a chance to treat before there is a real issue.  Once we are aware of the deficiency or problem area, supplementation and/ or dietary change may be appropriate.  If no changes are necessary, then you repeat the test the following year.  Dr. Chambers recommends a comprehensive blood panel at least once per year.  How long has it been since you’ve had one?

Gluten Free Living

Dr. Chambers has also received training on diet and its effect on our health. Wheat and gluten are an extreme irritant to our digestive system and can cause systemic inflammation leading to many physical maladies i.e. arthritis, brain fog, high cholesterol, depression, and/or digestive disorders.

Please review our PowerPoint Presentation, which includes what to foods avoid and where wheat/gluten are hidden in foods, how to substitute wheat flour and local resources for gluten free products.

We also sponsor a Gluten Free Living Group, meetings are held the fourth Saturday of each month at 12:00 PM.  Meetings are generally held at the Vine ( a special thanks to Glen and Tawni Hendriks).
