Expert Help Interpreting Blood Tests


Integrative health practitioner Dr. Dan Wagner, in private practice in the North Hills, says, “At some point in life, you will probably either want or need to get a blood test. However, unless you ask your healthcare professional, you may not know what the results really mean for your health. Generally, most medical professionals don’t bother explaining any readings to the patient that may be awry. Taking the time to unravel the mystery of blood panel results is well worth the effort since it can reveal a great deal about your overall health status.”


Statistics show that physicians in America spend an average of nine minutes with each patient, not nearly enough time to understand the complexity of blood work and definitely not enough time to ask questions. Wagner’s first nationally released book Interpreting Your Blood Work: How to Read it and Natural Ways to Improve Your Results fills in the gaps to fully take charge of our health by taking a more holistic approach to improving results with natural medicines, nutrition, homeopathy, herbals, essential oils and more.

Healthy Ways To Spend Time At Home
Global Brief: Natural Thinking Spending Time in Nature Increases Cognitive Performance
More of our time is spent indoors than ever before. One of the ways by which nature may improve cognitive function (i.e. the acquisition of and goal-oriented use of knowledge) is by improving memory formation and recall, specifically that of short-term or working memory, and goal-oriented or directed attention; the kind that requires focused effort. By comparing and contrasting 13 studies, a team of researchers has shed light on this complex interaction in research published in Frontiers in Psychology. The studies used the backwards digit span task, which requires participants to invert a series of numbers and repeat them back. All demonstrated significantly improved cognition in nature as compared to urban environments. The benefits of studies like this are two-fold: not only are we learning more about how the brain interacts with its environment, but also how to leverage this interaction to lead healthier, more productive and happier lives.
