3 Common Myths About Blood Testing by Frederic Patenaude

Whenever I post my blood test results, I always get lots of comments from my readers, and I often notice that there are a lot of myths running around about blood tests.

These myths have been circulating in the natural health world for a while, so I think it’s important to spell some of them out and hopefully help you understand how powerful it is to have blood testing in your disease-prevention corner.

I have to be clear before I start that blood testing is an essential tool to determining how your body is reacting to your environment, but testing isn’t the only marker of good health – it’s one of many.

1. MYTH: Blood tests don’t mean anything because the levels are inaccurate and based on unhealthy people. I feel healthy, so I don’t need them.

I used to believe this statement.

I believed it so strongly that I resisted blood tests even when I wasn’t feeling good.

By the time I got my first blood tests, I was deficient in many things – I was even outside some of the clinical ranges for unhealthy people.

Apparently my belief system and what I was doing was flawed.

When I started to break down my belief about blood testing, I began to understand some of the things I was fighting against.

First, I was fighting against the medical institution. My thought was this: much of what they do is wrong, so blood testing must be wrong too.

Second, I knew the levels were based on a sample of the general population so they were of no interest to me, since I was “healthy.” (This belief is partially true – at least the general population part.)

Third, I didn’t want to see any results that would go against the diet I was eating, because I was so strongly stuck in the dogma of it. I wasn’t going to change anyway.

You may have had some of these same beliefs – you may still have them.

It wasn’t until after my own health challenges that I looked at my beliefs objectively.

Only then, was I able to understand where I went wrong and why my beliefs were getting in the way of my best health.

Here’s what I realized…

Just because I was angry at the medical institution, didn’t mean that there is nothing valuable that has come from our science of medicine.

I was filtering everything in black and white.

Natural = good.
Medical = bad.
This is clearly not the case.

Blood tests can accurately show clinical disease as well as give you an idea of where you’re trending over the period of months and years.

The trick is you need to find a practitioner trained in functional medicine or preventative medicine who can read optimal levels, not clinical levels.

For those who don’t understand what this means…

Clinical levels are guidelines that determine if you can be clinically diagnosed with a disease. Optimal levels are based on clinical experience and can be much different than the clinical levels.

Knowing these optimal levels also helps to transcend the “general population” myth as well. The numbers on the lab worksheet tell a story about everyone, you just need to know how to read them.

2. MYTH: All doctors know how to read blood tests.

This second myth goes hand in hand with the first one, but I think it needs to be addressed separately.

Many people who find natural health do so because they’ve been ticked off (probably a nice word for it) by their doctor. They have symptoms and no one can tell that what is wrong.

Their doctor has ordered some blood tests and told them nothing is wrong, but they still feel tired or weak or worse.

What has happened here is not a failure of the blood test (which some people assume), it’s a failure of the medical education system.

There is plenty of knowledge about how to accurately and appropriately use blood tests (as well as others like saliva and urine) to treat patients who don’t fit into the medical model of disease.

The challenge is that this model is not being taught in medical schools.

So to think that just because one doctor or one failure of the system is enough to lose complete faith is not a particularly strong argument.

3. MYTH: Getting tested once is just a snapshot of my blood, it won’t mean anything…

This maybe isn’t a myth because it’s correct.

What’s incorrect is that this shouldn’t stop you from getting your blood tested.

Getting tested more than once and on a regular basis provides you with true and valuable information about your health. One time is not enough if you want the best preventative approach.

Look at it this way…

If you were to look at one day of a day trader’s stock ticker, you’d think that the market was crashing and rebounding every 6 minutes.

But if you take a look at the 5 year trend of the market, you can see very clearly where there was financial wealth and where there were problems.

Same with blood testing. If you have just one test, it gives you a snapshot, but not an overall picture of health. (There also could be lab error in this test as well.)

Regular testing establishes a pattern that you can read to understand how your health is trending for the long term – are you moving toward great health, or slowly (maybe quickly) moving toward deficiency and disease.

What’s Next?

Once you have the basic tests done, you need to be able to understand them. For that we highly recommend the Complete Blood Test Blueprint, by Dr. Williams, which is on sale.

Many physicians may be a bit too conservative or aggressive when it comes to certain test results so we think that Dr. Williams has provided a fantastic resource to analyze your own results and discuss them with your doctor after.

You’ll know exactly what each result means AND you’ll know what you can do to change them, if you need to.

How to Destroy Late Night Cravings by Frederic Patenaude

Have you noticed that almost all cravings for unhealthy foods come in the evening or at night?

I’ve heard that cravings are caused by low-blood sugar, food addiction, emotional eating, yin/yang imbalance, hormonal problems, dehydration, and nutritional deficiencies.

In my experience, none of these reasons are the cause of food cravings in most people.

80% of the time, food cravings are caused by:

Under-eating complex carbohydrates or fruit
Poor planning: you just don’t have enough tasty, healthy meals available at the right time

Let’s take a closer look.

The first reason is often overlooked. You’re not eating enough of the foods your body needs to be satisfied and maintain its energy levels.

Many popular diets tell you to fill up on vegetables — which contain virtually no calories. Plenty of vitamins and minerals, but none of the main thing that your body actually needs the most: glucose.

Other diets tell you to fill up on fat, such as found in nuts and seeds, olive oil, and avocado. But fat is the least satiating type of macronutrient — and every experiment done has proved this. You can sneak in extra calories in the form of oil in the food and people eat the same quantity (but more calories) without feeling more satisfied.

Protein can be satiating because it tends to curb feelings of hunger. But eating high-protein food doesn’t give you what your body actually craves: glucose. So that’s why people still crave sugar after a high-protein, “low-carb” meal, and eventually fall off the wagon to binge on rolls and other refined carbs like desserts!

When you give your body plenty of healthy, whole food sources of glucose — as in whole fruit, and healthy starches (rice, potatoes, beans, etc.) — cravings miraculously go away.

My mom lost 60+ pounds eating as many of those foods as she cared for, without counting calories. And thousands of people have done the same.

I hope that I’m not bragging by saying that I never get food cravings for things like chocolate, ice-cream, desserts, decadent food, chips, etc. Why? Because I’m not restricting at all the one category of nutrient that my body needs the most!

Poor Planning

People often tell me: “if I had a personal chef making me tasty, high raw, low-fat vegan recipes at home — then maybe I could do this diet. But I just don’t have the time!”

My fridge is always stocked with a ton of super-healthy meals that I prepare in advance, in a flash. I’m prepared, therefore I don’t have cravings!

If you get bored with your food, you’ll crave something else. If you open the fridge and tasty, healthy food greets you, you’re not going to be looking for something else. It’s that simple!

Another problem is that most raw food recipes are either too complicated, or too unhealthy, often loaded with fats and oils.

You don’t have 100% perfect to make this diet work.

You only have to focus all of your attention on the things that truly matter — what I call the 20% that gives you 80% of the results.

Eat enough whole fruit and complex carbohydrates
Have a system for food prep that rotates tasty meals that are easy to prepare in advance.

Don’t aim at perfection. Choose a program that works and makes you happy. Focus on just a few changes that will make the biggest difference in your health, rather than trying to change everything.

Maybe your food is not always organic. Maybe you might add some salt and seasonings to your food, instead of eating everything plain. So what? As long as you focus on the 20% that matters, you’ll get 80% of the results, and more!

How to Raise B12 Levels Quickly by Frederic Patenaude

How to Raise B12 Levels Quickly by Frederic Patenaude

A reader recently asked us, “Why is B12 supplementation required to thrive on a vegan diet? Is it a biologically appropriate diet?”

What the reader is asking is that if a plant-based diet is so healthy, why are there some supplements that are needed to make this diet complete?

There’s a lot of confusion in the raw food and vegan world about vitamin B12.

The vast majority of experts on the plant based diet who recommend supplements.

The reality is that eating a healthy diet has nothing to do with what’s “natural” for human beings.

Our environment is so sanitized that the bacteria that normally produce B12 are often not present. B12 is also a very sensitive vitamin and sometimes it can be found in the right quantities, but can’t be absorbed by the body because of a lack of what is called the “intrinsic factor.”

Vitamin B12 is the “energy vitamin” so it’s important to maintain the right levels of B12 to keep your energy constant enough to get you through the day without irritability or unusual fatigue.

So let’s be clear that anyone following a vegan, vegetarian or raw food diet should absolutely be supplementing with vitamin B12. But, since 40% of the population is testing low in B12, it would be wise for everyone to consider supplementing.

How to Supplement

So you have to supplement, but you have to find the right way to do it.

Most supplements, including sub-lingual tablets, are not absorbed completely by the body. The supplements contain a form of B12 that has to be converted by the body into the form that is truly usable.

As little as 0.1% of the B12 in a supplement ends up being assimilated in most cases.

So, what’s the solution?

B12 shots are the best way to get truly absorbable B12 when you are deficient and need to raise your levels quickly. But a shot can cost you close to $250 in North America (with a doctor’s consultation), and well… who likes needles? Not mentioning the fact that the liquids injected contain ingredients that you probably don’t want in your system.

Why I Use B12 Patches

I finally found a good solution to this problem, when I was attempting to raise my own B12 levels.

I was in Costa Rica, doing a juice fast, and there I met a lady who was using B12 patches. She managed to raise her own B12 levels quickly using a small patch that you put behind the ear once or twice a week.

I did some research and found out that the patches are probably the best alternative to shots and tablets.

They contain the most absorbable type of B12 — methylcobalamin — which is easily absorbed through the skin in 24 hours.

Other vitamins on the market contain cyanocobalamin, which is a cheaper source of B12 that needs to be converted by the body.

When you need to raise your B12 level you can use the patches. If you’re deficient, you can use the patches twice a week, and then as needed.

B12 overdoses are pretty much unknown and the patches provide just the right quantity that the body needs.

But beware, not all B12 patches are equally effective. We’ve tested a few brands until we found the one that worked best.

B12 the Energy Vitamin

If you feel constantly tired in spite of getting good sleep, you may want to look at raising your vitamin B12 levels.

B12’s role in energy production is well known, and insufficient B12 levels can lead to fatigue and mood changes.
