Course Description

In this class Thomas will share a simplified approach to interpreting blood chemistry and cbc’s with you. In easy-to-understand terms, he’ll explain four things to look at in the blood using the analogy of an engine. Here are the four parts of the body’s metabolic engine he’ll cover:

Glucose: Blood sugar or glucose is the fuel for the metabolic engine. He’ll discuss markers for insulin resistance, also known as metabolic syndrome, an underlying cause of numerous health problems including diabetes, heart disease and excess weight. He’ll also provide basic strategies for regulating glucose.

Oxygen: In a gasoline engine the carburetor mixes fuel with oxygen so it can burn. If the body’s fuel can’t be combined with oxygen it won’t produce energy. So, Thomas will also explain various types of anemia (lack of oxygenation of the blood) and strategies for each.

Metabolism: In an engine, like a car, spark plugs ignite the fuel and oxygen mixture, burning it to produce the energy that runs the engine. This process is called combustion. Combustion in the body is called metabolism and the endocrine system, especially the thyroid, provides the spark that regulates metabolism. In fact, the thyroid can be compared to the gas pedal in a car. It determines how fast or slow the metabolic engine will run. So, Thomas will also give an overview of how to see what’s happening with the body’s combustion system and how to regulate it.

Filters: Engines require filters to keep the air and fuel clean so the engine doesn’t get gummed up with debris. The kidneys and liver are the primary filters for the body’s engine. So, the last thing Thomas will cover in this class is how to assess how well the filters are functioning and strategies to get them working properly.

In addition the class will cover functional ranges for common nutrient deficiencies and thyroid issues.
