Diagnostic tests allow us to understand the function of the body and are a significant component of The Wellness Way Approach. That’s why we say, “We don’t guess, we test!”
Because we believe comprehensive testing is so important, we work with only the most advanced laboratories across the country, providing patients with the most cutting-edge testing available. We want you to have the most complete diagnostic testing.
Why is Complete Diagnostic Testing Important?
Many people have had their hormones tested but few have had complete hormone testing unless they have been to one of The Wellness Way Clinics. Did you know that there are multiple estrogens? Estrogen is an umbrella term for a group of 10 chemically-similar hormones. Few people know there are multiple estrogens and even fewer have had them all tested. How can you balance your hormones if you aren’t getting complete diagnostic testing?
Incomplete testing leaves practitioners shooting in the dark. Complete testing can give the clinician the whole picture and guide for next steps. Not all testing is created equal, and we ensure that your test results will allow for the best clinical diagnosis and plan for care. Complete diagnostic testing is important to ensure you are on the right track for getting back to your best as fast as possible.
Clinical Diagnosis and The Swiss Watch Principle
A proper clinical diagnosis can’t be made solely on symptoms. Sometimes your symptoms are wrong. That’s what makes The Wellness Way Approach so different. We understand that the body is like a Swiss watch. Like the gears of the Swiss watch, all of the body’s systems are connected. If the smallest gear of a Swiss watch stops working or goes slower, it impacts the whole watch. The body is just like that, so laboratory tests help us find out which system is impacting the body.
If everything is connected, how do you choose from a long list of laboratory tests? That is why your preliminary appointment is so important. Your doctor will perform an initial assessment and help you with next steps.
Getting Answers with Diagnostic Tests
With so many testing options available today, there are many important decisions to be made. Whether you are unsure of where to begin or you know exactly what testing you would like to have completed, allow us to help you receive the best testing, so you get the most out of your results.
