Are you truly healthy? A Deep Dive into Your Health and Labs

With Dr. Mary Pardee

Have you ever felt symptoms, visited your doctor, run a plethora of tests, only to be told that everything is “normal”? This is far too common. When it comes to optimal health, there’s more to it than a few blood tests that look at reference ranges based on the average person. Dr. Mary Pardee walks us through exactly what’s wrong with traditional tests and what we can do to create optimal health.

On today’s Broken Brain Podcast, Dr. Mary and I dive deep into a holistic and functional approach to overall wellness. We cover everything from hormones to cardio-metabolic health, general physical exams, blood work, and the difference between healthspan and lifespan. She introduces the idea of “optimal” ranges and explains how this can be quite different from “reference” ranges when it comes to wellness. They cover 13 different health areas so you can know exactly which tests your doctor should run and exactly where your results should be. This episode is everything you ever wanted to know about assessing your overall health and how to truly feel optimal.
