Biomarker Series: Introduction to Baseline

As Floodgate Managing Partner Mike Maples put it, “WellnessFX is like Google Analytics for your own body.” But like Google Analytics, the report doesn’t mean much if you don’t know what all the numbers mean or where to go from there. Luckily, WellnessFX Baseline comes with a health and/or medical consult. Still, we believe people will be that much more equipped to take hold the reigns of their life and do what’s needed to become happy and healthier if they are knowledgeable about the crucial elements of their bodies. Over the next few weeks we will be breaking down the several different biomarkers tested in WellnessFX Baseline, their roles in the body, and why it’s important to get tested.

Over the next few weeks, our Medical Director Doctor Murdoc Khaleghi will be walking us through each of the main biomarkers tested in WellnessFX Baseline. Murdoc, an active clinician and writer, has published several preventative health and wellness books and been featured on all the major networks, CNN, and numerous radio shows, with a focus on making complex health topics understandable and engaging. Although Murdoc loves his work as an emergency physician, he became frustrated with helping people only near the end of their care. The types of problems he frequently saw (heart disease, strokes, etc) were those that could have been avoided with proper detection, education, and planning. At WellnessFX Doctor Murdoc strives to help people attack these issues before they even start!

WellnessFX Baseline tests a lot of different biomarkers. You’d be surprised at all the things a single drop of blood can tell you! We will be going through each of these biomarkers here on our blog to make the information more accessible to you. Some indicators, like hs-CRP and Vitamin D, have higher complexity or importance and will receive their own posts. Others, like the many different electrolytes, will be grouped together. Either way, there’s a lot to learn about your body and how it works, so check back regularly!
