Diagnostic medicine is dramatic. Doctors are expected to be detectives and to solve health crises with extremely limited time and information. Yet we are conditioned to believe that a physical visit to our doctor is the only way to address our health.

WellnessFX challenges that belief.

7 Ways WellnessFX is Different Than Your Average Healthcare Experience

1. Comprehensive diagnostics

Doctors typically test only a handful, if any, biomarkers at an annual physical.

WellnessFX tests 30 – 125 different health markers depending on the package, focusing on all of the conventional red flags as well as more subtle indicators of poor health. Our Baseline package includes advanced lipid profiles, inflammation biomarkers, vitamin D levels, a comprehensive metabolic panel (CMP), thyroid panel, and newer cardiovascular health markers. WellnessFX Premium package includes screenings of genetic markers for the effectiveness of common medications, hormones indicative of reproductive and athletic health, and types of fats in the blood that develop in clogging and can determine the best nutrition for your body. WellnessFX utilizes the most advanced laboratory testing techniques available.

WellnessFX gives you and your practitioners more data with which to work.

2. Customized health management programs

WellnessFX practitioners have the benefit of not being dictated by limited time and insurance constraints. They take the time to get to know you inside and out (literally), and design a personalized health and wellness plan for you that reflects your needs and goals. The WellnessFX practitioners can work around your schedule, allowing you to avoid waiting rooms and travel time. Blood samples can be taken from your home or office.

WellnessFX understands that health and wellness is the opposite of “one-size-fits-all.”

3. Consistent monitoring

Dramatic changes to health and wellness can take place within weeks. Did you know that your blood cells regenerate every 120 days?

Consistent monitoring adds depth to the comprehensive diagnostics that WellnessFX offers. Initial blood test results provide an important baseline assessment of your overall health – the starting point of your journey. WellnessFX then visually represents your health and tracks improvements in your personalized health profile. It provides an easy-to-understand report that displays key metrics and markers. Follow-up tests at set intervals then help you and your practitioners track your progress and tweak your program based on what works for you.

WellnessFX helps you monitor your health consistently, rather than sporadically.

4. Education

How many times has your doctor handed you a prescription rather than explaining how and why you might be feeling sick? According to a recent study published in Cochrane, Patients who are prescribed medicines take only about half of their doses and many stop treatment entirely.

After performing screening tests and devising a personalized health and wellness plan, your WellnessFX practitioners teach you how to interpret the test results in line with your history and your symptoms.  Your personal health profile provides a breakdown of the different organ systems, markers and nutrition information from your diagnostics. You can research any points of interest using the wealth of information on the WellnessFX website and blog, and through speaking with your WellnessFX practitioners.

WellnessFX provides you with the tools and knowledge you need to take control of your own health and wellness. 

5. “Well Care” rather than “Sick Care”

We are conditioned to visit our doctor when we get sick. Sometimes we even wait until our symptoms are severe. At that point, both we are in reactive mode – attempting to limit damage and heal as quickly as possible

Addressing your health challenges now, and employing preventative care, can significantly improve your quality of life today and in the future.

WellnessFX services allow you to understand potential risks and how to modify your lifestyle to restore your well being – before symptoms become severe.

6. Convenient

All WellnessFX consultations with our practitioner network are done via telehealth, so all you need is a phone, stable internet connection, and privacy.

Telehealth consultations take less time. Imagine that instead of taking a half day off of work and interrupting your day to drive to the doctor, fill a prescription, and drive back to work, you simply find a secure phone line in a private area to dial into your 20-minute consultation. When it’s over, you can go right back to your busy day.

WellnessFX give you access to our network of licensed health practitioners for an in-depth interpretation of your biomarkers.

7. Accessible 24/7

Whether it’s for convenience, or in case of emergency or for when you’re traveling, it’s your health data. Storing it in one, centralized, secure place where you can access it from your computer or on your mobile phone is just plain smart.

Did you know that as a WellnessFX member, you can add your past lab records? After you create your free WellnessFX account, there’s an option in your profile to enter previous blood draws and store them.

WellnessFX gives you access to the information that’s yours, empowering you the advantage to make informed decisions about lifestyle and nutrition choices.
