Kristin Grayce McGary’s new book “Know Your Blood, Know Your Health” launches April 7, 2020

SEATTLE, WA, April 04, 2020 /Neptune100/ — Health and lifestyle expert Kristin Grayce McGary (LAc., MAc., CFMP®, CST-T, CLP) launches her second book on April 7, 2020: “Know Your Blood, Know Your Health: Prevent Disease and Enjoy Vibrant Health Through Functional Blood Chemistry Analysis” (Findhorn Press, Simon & Schuster). Readers learn how to improve personal health and avoid disease through customized, functional, and individual blood test analysis.

As Kristin Grayce explains, standard blood lab panels may come back “normal” even though people experience continuing symptoms of allergies, pain, headaches, fatigue, inflammation, depression, food cravings, PMS, or gas and bloating. This has to do with the conventional lab reference ranges being based more on illness than health.

“Your blood holds the clues you need to maintain vibrant health,” says Kristin Grayce, “yet a standard blood lab panel — the most widely used diagnostic tool in Western medicine — may not reveal subclinical imbalances or the earliest beginnings of disease. This is because the reference ranges to which you are being compared are gathered from sources such as textbooks, averages based on outdated guesswork, or a small number of people who aren’t even well. You could be a tenth of a point away from a disease pattern, but diagnostic protocol won’t sound the alarm until you are ‘lab high’ on a particular test.”

“Know Your Blood, Know Your Health”…

• Explains the differences between conventional lab reference ranges for blood tests and functional analysis — and why the difference is important to our health.
• Reveals what healthy blood should look like and the critical markers that signal the very beginnings of a health problem, including thyroid dysfunction and inflammation.
• Takes the guesswork out of your healthcare and puts the power back into your hands.
• Provides recommendations for bringing blood markers back to an optimal healthy range through diet and supplementation.
• Empowers you to have new conversations with your doctors to get your health needs met.

Kristin Grayce explains the benefits of a Functional Blood Chemistry Analysis (FBCA), which looks at far more markers than standard blood tests and interprets your results against healthy ranges. Using real-life stories and examples, she illuminates the basics of healthy blood and how a functional blood test provides a baseline for personal health and a powerful tool for disease prevention.

Readers learn what is meant by a standard Complete Blood Count (CBC), find clues to strengthen their immune system, and discover which markers indicate inflammation. McGary details what different reference ranges mean and highlights the importance of a full thyroid panel for everyone. She reveals how health issues such as insulin resistance, high cholesterol, and anemia have specific patterns in blood chemistry. She also provides recommendations for bringing markers back to an optimal healthy range through nutrition and supplementation and offers a road map to using your unique blood chemistry to design a customized healthcare plan to optimize your well-being.

Fans of Kristin Grayce’s work will also want to be sure to check out her first book — “Holistic Keto for Gut Health: A Program for Resetting Your Metabolism” — which came out in January 2020.
