Take a look behind the scenes at this awesome new program!

Hey everyone, we’ve been getting a lot of questions about the new Blood Test Blueprint Program, so I wanted to take you “under the hood” to show you just exactly what one of these awesome infographics — which is one of the aspects of this program we’ve most proud of — looks like…

Before I do that, I want to explain that the Blood Test Blueprint was created for you to end the confusion about which diet, supplements and healthy lifestyle is right for you.

Your blood tests can help determine what is working for you significantly better than any expert — online or off — can.

Blood tests helped me get on track — even when I thought my diet was great, my tests showed it clearly wasn’t working for me.

If you want to read more about that story, you can here (click.)

Anyway, we’ve spent a lot of time putting together the infographics in this program because we wanted to make sure that they were easy to understand and helped you take your health back into your own hands. These inforgraphics are also fantastic reference guides for nutrition and health practitioners, because they serve as blood level cheat sheets — which not only show desirable and optimal ranges outside of the clinical standards, but also give recommendations to help you or a patient get their levels back into range. What’s even better is that the suggestions are based on Dr. J. E. Williams’ 30 years of clinical experience — so think of these sheets as being in Dr. Williams’ brain while you work on your own health or with the health of others.

Alright, let’s show you around…

First up, we have a list of the 10 most common test groups. These range from inflammation and heart markers, to insulin/diabetes and vitamin/nutrient levels.

blood-test-blueprint-categories

If you’re new to blood testing, generally you’ll want to get most of these tests — they will establish a baseline of overall health.

This is a list to get:

  • CBC – Complete Blood Count with Differential and Platelets
  • Chemistry/Metabolic Panel
  • Lipid Panel with LDL/HDL ratio
  • TSH, (Thyroid Stimulating Hormone)
  • Cortisol, AM Fasting
  • DHEA-s
  • Pregnenolone
  • Hemoglobin A1c
  • Insulin
  • Homocystine
  • C-Reactive Protein (Cardiac)
  • Vitamin B12, serum
  • Vitamin D, 25-hydroxy
  • Total Iron

The additional ones that may be optional — are the Free T3, Free T4 and TPO if your TSH is in range and you have no symptoms of thyroid issues. Also, folate is generally unnecessary for healthy vegetarians. Ferritin and Iron Binding Capacity (TIBC) may be needed for suspicion of anemia and Antinuclear Antibody (ANA) and Sedimentation Rate (ESR) should be requested if there is suspicion of autoimmune disease.

(NOTE: This list of tests is now included in the program based on your requests!)

Next up, you will see the individual tests and their definition. The definition explains what the test is for and why you’d want to get it.

This here is an example of the definition of Homocystine which is connected to chronic inflammation, cardiovascular disease and Alzheimer’s.

One of the greatest things about this program is that we’ve made it as easy as possible to determine what the optimal levels are for all different types of markers. You’ll see in this graphic, that we’ve placed the clinical (regular lab ranges), the desirable and optimal (based on Dr. Williams’ clinical experience) on a scale that is easy to read — even if the levels get a little complicated.

Here’s where you can see how we’ve done this…

blood-test-blueprint-triglycerides

After this, you’ll see an explanation of what the consequences are if you have high levels of that particular marker and on the other side, you’ll see what the consequences are of low levels of that marker.

You can see what will happen if you continue to have high levels of cortisol…

blood-test-blueprint-high-levels

Here you can see what could happen if you have low levels of Vitamin B12…

blood-test-blueprint-low-levels

Complete with Natural Recommendations…

Finally, what I think is the complete winner, and what separates this program from what else we’ve seen out on the market is that we give tangible suggestions on how to bring high or low levels into range using natural solutions.

These suggestions are based on Dr. Williams’ 30 years of clinical experience and are more likely to be effective than what you find in theory around the Internet. It’s always been my mission to find the best possible solutions and I trust 30 years of experience much more than an article on a website that any old Joe (or Janet) could put up in an hour — just by reading a Wikipedia page.

We’ve also included this graphic key, so you can easily browse through and see what recommendations are given.

blood-test-blueprint-key-2

Here are the natural recommendations for high hemoglobin A1c…

blood-test-blueprint-high-recommendations-2

Here are the recommendations for low iron…

blood-test-blueprint-low-recommendations

Additionally, we’ve translated all the levels into International S.I. Units. This is for our international customers who might see different levels on their own personal tests.

blood-test-blueprint-si-units

What’s just as valuable as this is…

This program also contains 4+ hours explaining the tests, what they’re used for, why to get each one, etc. There are also very well edited transcripts that are included for those who like to read more than listen. It’s funny that I’ve been busy explaining the infographics and have almost forgotten about this whole part of the program. It’s basically a crash course that will leave you more knowledgeable on how to interpret functional blood levels than even some of the better MDs out there.

I’m pretty sure this is the most comprehensive course on the subject because we’ve spend months drilling down what is most important and simplifying it to the n-th degree. Our goal is for you to be able to go to a practitioner (or an online source for tests), order what you need, be able to understand your levels, and know where to start to bring them into balance — maybe even better than your doctor who’s had very little nutritional education.

Better yet, this is a program that you bring with you when you meet with your doctor to help them understand that there are more to blood tests than the clinical levels. Finally, it’s fantastic for practitioners who want the knowledge of Dr. Williams at their fingertips when a client comes to them with their blood tests.

It’s truly the ultimate way to determine what diet, supplement and lifestyle is working for you — or not.

Your blood tests hold knowledge that ultimately can stop the confusion that is caused by all the experts telling you what is right and what is wrong. Inside of your tests, you’ll find the blueprint that will help you get healthy, regardless of what they say.

If you want to get this program now, here’s where you can read more and purchase. Right now, it’s on special until June 15th, 2012 — almost 50% off. Also you can get the “How to Read Your Blood Tests” and “The Complete Blood Test Blueprint” at a great discount if you don’t have the first program.

    There is a typo “whole gains” in your screen shot of the program. Plus thanks for the comprehensive guide.

  2. Shell says:

    I am not dismissing the importance of blood testing, but your autonomic nervous system is an important key that is too often over looked. Finding out if you are a sympathetic metabolic type or parasympathetic type can do a lot for you if you really want to be well. This is done by hair mineral analysis and there are only two labs in the U.S. that do the testing correctly. (proper testing procedures absolutely require that must not be washed at the lab)
    By finding your dominant type you can avoid certain foods/minerals that may be good for others but not for you. Blood tests at the tissue level whereas hair can test us at the cellular level.

    • Gwen says:

      You mentioned two labs but did not identify them. How can we look into this further without some identifying factors?

  3. George says:

    As I may have said previously, such a complete blood testing such as you suggest would be rather expensive and i can’t see the usual GP referring you to a clinic. Only the employed and well-paid could afford this in Australia. The older person would have to be a rich, self-funded retiree.

  4. Quin says:

    Thanks, Kevin for creating an important, useful tool. I wish I had it years ago.

    To Shell: I would like to talk with you about assessing metabolic type if you would be available. I can be reached at

    hereyeam@yahoo.com

  5. Jared says:

    Another thing that can help with an iron deficiency is using cast iron cookware to prepare you meals. Old fashioned but effective.

  6. Martine Drabbe says:

    I agree with George this is very expensive also in The Netherlands.
    Rich people can do this not the middle and lower class.

  7. Tom says:

    Yo Kev: Can you give a ballpark figure please for all of these tests to be done? I’d venture a guess of around $500.00 to $1000.00 for the whole group.

    I have to agree, that this would be for the “well heeled” soul with bucks to burn! Not for the 99%’ers!

    Thanks for such a informative article, Stay Safe,Tom

  8. carvacrol says:

    How does this differ from the original blood test ebook? Can we get a free upgrade if we already bought the original book?

  9. These are really great comments about price. The basic tests are what your doctor normally runs. Insurance covers most, if not all of these tests, if the diagnostic codes are right. For the basic tests, the cost is between $100-300, if you’re paying out-of-pocket. Labs and doctors often offer cash in advance discounts. Hormones and specialty tests push the price up — no doubt about it. However, I understand your concerns and will write a blog, as well as cover cost issue in future editions of the program. Perhaps a “must do” list of annual tests would also be helpful.

  10. Lisa says:

    Hi Kev, is the how to read your blood tests the booklet you have sold in the past?

    Great programme!

  11. Kevin Gianni Kevin Gianni says:

    Hey guys! Please see Dr. Williams’ comments on price. If you have a GP, you should be able to get most of them covered with insurance, as the doc says.

    I pay cash and do this profile once a year. It comes out to about what Dr. Williams explains — $200-300 — and I get the extensive profile above.

    Yes, $200-300 is a decent amount of money. At the same time, it breaks down to less than $1.00 a day. I’m pretty sure many more people can afford to put $1.00 away every day to spend on their health every year when it’s put into that perspective.

    It’s a priority for me, so I make it happen. It’s up to you to do the same — or not. Either way is fine, I just tend to care more than most and want you to use the tools that I used to get better.

    Live Awesome!

  12. Annette says:

    Hi George,

    I live in Australia too, and you can get these blood tests done through a good naturopath or nutritionist. If price is an issue to have them all done at once, you could opt to have 1 or 2 done every few months and spread the cost out that way.

    Hope that is helpful 🙂

  13. Scout says:

    One consideration is that it can be difficult to find a doctor who will order these tests for you (in order for it to be covered by insurance). I finally found one who would order them (a vegan MD’s clinic) and it cost my insurance around $1000 for nearly all of the recommended tests on the list (minus DHEA and cortisol) plus all of the “optional” tests. I ended up paying about 5% of this and it was well worth it.

    But again, the hard part wasn’t paying for it, it was getting a doctor to order them. Strange, considering it doesn’t seem to be very hard to get doctors to whip out their prescription pads…

  14. marja says:

    Kevin you now offer both the two programs at a reduced price. Would not it be fair to the people who already bought the first program to give them a discount on the second? For many people (like me) it is not affordable to buy the new program at full price.

  15. Bill K, says:

    Kevin,

    I noticed that some of the corrective measure involved using animal foods such as Fish oil or meat (for the iron deficiency correction) Do you spell out Vegan friendly alternatives in the guide?

    Bill K.

  16. Gurjit Dhallu says:

    Hi Kevin, I noticed in the previous “How to Read your Blood Tests” manual, there was no mention of Uric Acid. Do you know why this has been excluded and is Uric Acid covered in this new manual?

  17. Kevin, since you are “open” for comments, I’m going to voice my opinion.

    I’ve followed you for years but have not bought a single item from you. Why?
    While I find your own health journey informative, over the years you have been all over the board on what works and what doesn’t. Early on, your blogs were focused on an almost 100% raw diet. At the time, you felt this was the be all, end all way to eat. You did your best to persuade others to eat this way. You learned you were missing a lot of valuable nutrition and decided that som form of meat is a good idea. Similar to a westin price diet. Heck, I remember one blog where you said your teeth were detiorating from too much sugar from fruit! Uh oh, maybe too much fruit is a bad thing? I just read the article on coffee. What people need to understand is that your blog is really a journey of self discovery about yourself. What gives the raw or renegade health movement so much disregard is the lack of consistent info. Go from blog to blog and you’ll read about what you should be or should not be doing. Even within blogs such as yourself, you are inconsistent. This breeds much confusion. Coffee may be not for you but some yogis do well with it way into their 90’s. and I’m sorry, but I see a lot of raw foodists that look sickly thin and pale. So now this blood test, like Dr dadamo. We take the test and most everyone is going to score above or below a threshold. Then what? We buy supplements from you? It’s a continuous vicious obsessive cycle. Just as someone who is an addict with unhealthy food, a person can be obsessed and an addict over healthy food. To the point where they are not truly living but constantly obsessed over certain blood levels or they should be eating this or that. It’s simple, juice as much as you can afford and have the time too, eat the way that feels good to you, even if it means a steak and beer, exercise, sleep plenty, drink lots of water, laugh, love, play and work.

    People please….remember that we are all different and unique and what works for one will not work for another. Kevin’s way of eating does not work for me, but I am extremely healthy and flexible at 39. And remember there much misinformation. Listen to your own body and heart. They will always tell you the truth.

    • Kevin Gianni Kevin Gianni says:

      Matthew,

      I don’t think you’ve heard my main point for all these years… everyone is different. The lesson is always to find out for yourself. 🙂

  18. Kosmo says:

    So, Kevin… (as per your examples) if I have high cortisol levels “in the morning” (something standard blood tests are unlikely to indicate – or, do cortisol levels now come with time stamps?) your “Effective Remedies and Dosages” by which we may bring our numbers back into range, will include practical, everyday staples like “Yacon syrup from Peru”, and “Orl’eans strawberry”(?). WOW! And, for any bumpkins out there who don’t already know what an “Orl’eans strawberry” is, you clarify further by providing the Latin name, “Fragaria vesca var Orl’eans”. YAY! But, after blood test are all ‘said and done’, it appears from such examples as these that those of us without our own personal Shaman (with requisite bag full of potions) will still be SOL…

  19. Rick T. says:

    Kevin,
    I have high blood pressure, I’ve been seeing a Dr and she has tryed different Meds but it does’nt seem to help with controlling my blood pressure, would your program help me find the root cause of my high blood pressure

    • Guillaume says:

      Dear Rick,

      I’m neither Kevin nor Dr Williams, but since it is mostly the kidneys that regulate blood pressure, since I’ve spent the several months studying kidney function in my spare time, and since have written three articles that relate to this (links below), I will give you some advice that you are free to do with as you will:

      1) First thing to do is to start supplementing with magnesium because we tend to all be rather gravely deficient and because it is essential for muscle fibers to relax, particularly for the smooth muscle cells that line our arteries and veins. You should take at least 600 mg per day, and the most effective way to get that into your body completely is through the skin by dissolving 20 g (4 teaspoons) of magnesium chloride (nigari used for making tofu) in 80 ml of water for a total of 100 ml of a 20% solution. Six sprays per each arm, leg, chest and back is equivalent to 600 mg. Do this first thing in the morning, and allow 30 minutes for it to absorb before having a shower. Doing this will most likely solve the high blood pressure problem all by itself.

      2) Make sure you drink 1 liter of water over the course of about 45 minutes, and then waiting 30 minutes before eating each of your 3 meals.

      3) Make sure you eat unrefined sea salt quite liberally with your meals. You should eat about 10 g of salt for your 3 litres of water.

      Here are the links to the three articles that you really should read to understand for yourself what’s what:

      You are very welcome to ask whatever on my blog.

  20. Guillaume says:

    Dear Kevin, dear Dr Williams,

    I bought the programme because although I have already read a lot and know quite a lot about a number of issues that relate to levels of various markers, I was sure I would learn valuable information from Dr Williams with his exceptional experience over a long and unusual career as a clinician. And rest assured, I have already in the first couple of 1-hour audio files.

    But yesterday, while listening to the section on blood lipids, I was very disappointed and almost infuriated by the discussions and recommendations that attest to a clear lack of appreciation and understanding of cholesterol metabolism and transport in humans. I don’t want to write much too much here, but will highlight the key points and direct you to some essential readings that you have obviously overlooked but shouldn’t have.

    First, cholesterol is absolutely vital for our health and is thus obviously very good for us—always and in all circumstances. The highest concentration of cholesterol (25% of the total supply) is in our brain (2% of our mass) because neurons by mass mostly water and cholesterol. As soon as concentrations drop below 150 mg/dl, negative neurological consequences ensue. Most hormones are build from cholesterol and thus hormonal health and balance relies on a plentiful supply of it. Lipoprotein levels are exactly what they should be given the current condition of the body because they are a response to the body’s needs. And this is always the case: concentrations are regulated by genetics and by the current needs of the body and thus should never be tampered with or manipulated directly—they are always a consequence of other factors.

    Second, we should stop taking about the lipoproteins that carry cholesterol as if they are different types of cholesterol simply because they are not. This is misleading and breeds misunderstanding: high density lipoprotein, low density lipoprotein and very-low density lipoprotein are carriers of cholesterol and fats, and come in a whole spectrum of sizes and densities, even within each of these categories.

    Third, all carrier lipoproteins work together as part of the same system of transport whose role is to always ensure an adequate supply of cholesterol to all cells of the body: the primary role of LDL is to carry cholesterol from the liver to cells, and the primary role of HDL is to carry left over or unneeded cholesterol back to the liver for recycling, because cholesterol is precious and hard to manufacture. So, in this sense, their concentration should be balanced and about equal; not HDL as high as possible and LDL as low as possible: this really doesn’t make any sense at all!

    Fourth, the non-genetic part of the regulation of the need for cholesterol by the body is intimately related to inflammation and tissue dammage, because it is needed for repairing and rebuilding cell walls. Inflammation and tissue dammage are directly related to the consumption of refined and starchy (all insulin-stimulating) carbohydrates and polyunsaturated vegetable oils. It is for this reason that if one eliminates carbs and vegetable oils, elevated lipoprotein levels will drop as a consequence of the fact that there will be less inflammation and less tissue dammage. And this is universal, with variations based on individual sensitivity.

    Fifth, ideal total lipoprotein levels are between 200 and 240 mg/dl. This is where we find the minimum of the parabolically-shaped curve of age-corrected death rate versus concentration. The death rate rise smoothly and symmetrically on either side of this minimum, and at 150 mg/dl it is high!

    And finally, the recommendation to follow a very-low fat diet for several months in order to lower lipoprotein concentration is absolutely terrible in that it can have awfully harmful consequences, and this for anyone as any age, no matter what the circumstances are. Metabolic optimisation can only be done by allowing the cells of the body to re-accustom themselves with using fat as their primary fuel. This is what almost all cells require. Our human lineage evolved over millions on years almost exclusively in continuous nutritional ketosis. This is therefore what all tissues and cells are yearning for. This implies that in optimal metabolic efficiency, glucose levels should be at a minimum 75 mg/dl, triglycerides also at 35 mg/dl because they are continuously and efficiently used, insulin should be as low as possible at 2 or 3 microU/l but there is no lower bound.

    Please read my article about cholesterol: http://healthfully.wordpress.com/2011/12/06/what-about-cholesterol/ and about blood analysis in relation of metabolic efficiency: http://healthfully.wordpress.com/2012/11/15/blood-analysis-ii-understanding-a-few-essential-numbers/, but I have several other ones that discuss related issues, and all of them are about optimal health.

    And please carefully read:
    1) Good Calories, Bad Calories by Gary Taubes,
    2) The Great Cholesterol Con by Anthony Colpo,
    3) The Great Cholesterol Con by Malcolm Kendrick, and
    4) Fat and Cholesterol Are Good For You by Uffe Ravnskov. As well as
    5) Ron Rosedale’s writings: http://www.drrosedale.com/rosedale_writing.htm#axzz2HBWSq9ev
