November 6 was an action-packed day for me. Not only did I head out to the polls and vote, but I also head to LabCorp to get my blood drawn. Even though I eat pretty healthfully and workout, I’ll admit that I’m not the most diligent when it comes to getting check ups and clinical tests. I decided that I would kick my ‘I’ll get checked when I feel like I’m dying’ philosophy to the curb and get my baseline by WellnessFX and make sure my health was on point.
The service provided by WellnessFX is pretty cool. After you get your blood drawn, WellnessFX does a full analysis and provides you with a consultation to break down what it all means. The test includes an analysis of your cardiovascular and metabolic health, kidney and liver functions, cholesterol levels and the amount of vitamins and minerals present in your body. I was happy to see that all of my results were in the healthy range, with only two issues: my CO2 and creatinine levels were high.
Of course I had no idea what that meant, but fortunately the consultation that WellnessFX provided (via a 20 minute phone call with nutritionist Janelle Deeds) broke that down for me. My alkaline/acid levels were off, likely from my weight lifting, and I need to drink more water. Janelle recommended a Potassium and Magnesium supplement as well as adding some apple cider vinegar to my water to help alkaline my body.
I’m very impressed with the service provided by WellnessFX and would recommend it to anyone just to make sure your body and health are at optimal performance. I will be getting my blood drawn all over again in a few weeks to make sure that I was able regulate my CO2 and Creatinine levels.
