HOW TO LEVERAGE LAB TESTING WHEN NAVIGATING YOUR WAY BACK TO HEALTH
When you have a complex chronic health issue, it can feel overwhelming, if not impossible, to navigate your way through the infinite see of health advice.
When we turn our attention to lab testing, the confusion can increase exponentially. I mean, Industrial Medicine doctors already ran labs on you, right? Maybe they found something or maybe they told you “everything is normal.” You mean there are even more tests that they didn’t run?
