Science Based Nutrition is an innovative, science-based look at nutritional strengths & weaknesses through an individual’s blood test, as well as other objective diagnostic tools. This objective approach can offer a clear plan for determining and monitoring nutritional recommendations. Most blood tests are reported using an established “Clinical Range”.
Clinical Range vs Optimal Range
If you are within this Clinical Range, you are most likely considered “normal”. This should not be confused with “healthy”. Clinical Ranges are determined by taking approximately 100- 200 people who tested recently with a particular lab (yes, they are determined by each individual lab and not a centralized agency). The people being tested typically have a health problem which is why they’re being tested in the first place. These results which are basically coming from a sick population are then averaged to establish the Clinical Range with the high and low sides of the range being two standard deviations from the average.
Our SBN panel also incorporates an Optimal, or healthy range, in our reports. The Optimal Range simply takes the middle 20% of the Clinical Range. It’s designed with the concept of not waiting until a patient’s test result is “Clinical” to consider nutritional support or lifestyle changes. The point of the Optimal Range is to “flag” tests that are heading towards Clinical. Wouldn’t you want to make minor changes now to avoid big problems later? PREVENTION: That’s the whole idea!
See The Difference
At the end of your Ollin SBN report, you’ll find a summary of all of the supplement recommendations. These supplement recommendations are customized based upon the patient’s test results, gender, weight and severity of condition.
The SBN report gives you a patient friendly visual aid documenting the patient’s laboratory results. Yellow is warning, Red is danger!, Blue is emergency! Upon retesting, you can compare any test side by side! No flipping back and forth between lab reports PLUS there is data point that instantly tells you what’s improved and what needs a little more work!
