Courtney Jonson, L.Ac. is a preventative healthcare practitioner and is available for WellnessFX consults in California. Visit her site here.

I think it is important to point out that each year Americans continue to spend more out-of-pocket money on health services beyond those offered within the traditional health-care system. There’s a very important message being sent here.  People are actively searching for “more” when it comes to their healthcare.  Gone are the days that patients are routinely given comprehensive detailed laboratory assessments.  In fact, the average health care practitioner spends very little time with his or her patients.  A 45-minute office visit to the doctor that includes 5 minutes with the doctor and 40 minutes waiting is dangerous to one’s health.  This poses a serious problem and, I believe, is one of the main reasons why people end up in an office like mine.

People are seeking healthcare solutions and practitioners that can provide them with comprehensive evaluations, carefully thought out treatment plans and non-invasive, early detection screening options.  It is this transformed mindset that sets up the stage for “functional” medicine, and comprehensive evaluations in which people seek objective analyses such as lab tests with conservative support that includes nutritional therapy, diet, and lifestyle change.

A couple months ago we gave you a glimpse at some of the things our members say about WellnessFX and their experiences.

We hoped you’ve enjoyed our week of testimonials! We really do have awesome members and just wanted to take some time out to highlight them, their awesome achievements, and give a real picture of what the WellnessFX experience is all about.

To cap off the week, we have a post from a veteran! Kristin Newman wrote about her experience nearly a year ago, when our blog was just a baby, which you can find here and here. We believe WellnessFX should be used as a way to track an individual’s on-going progress to achieve and maintain wellness, as the body is a constantly changing entity. So we’re happy to congratulate Kristin on getting her first follow-up!

Blood, Stress and Diet – A Member Experience

The great thing about WellnessFX is it can be utilized at both the beginning of your road to wellness or after you’ve already spent half a lifetime devoted to health and fitness. There really is no ‘targeted group’: anyone who’s trying to improve and/or keep up their health can greatly benefit!

That said, we’re happy to welcome a new member into the WellnessFX family. Alexandra Williams runs her own fitness site, Fun and Fit, with Kymberly Williams-Evans. Together, these two experts host radio shows, teach classes, and have won many awards for their online content. Alexander recently got her blood drawn with WellnessFX Baseline as part of the FitFluential campaign and posted a nifty blog about her experience on her site. Here’s a summary:

  • Alexandra was in and out of her blood draw in 15 minutes!
  • She reported very good results–she was ‘green’ for nearly every category. She attributes this to ‘portion size and food selection.’
  • The only bad part of her results were her LDL (low-density lipoprotein) levels. This is otherwise known as ‘bad cholesterol’. Alexandra has a family history of bad cholesterol and thinks genetics is the main culprit, as she eats pretty cleanly.

Dave Korsunsky is a Silicon Valley-based technologist. After 15 years of working in the tech industry, he was unhappy with his body and mind. In his words, it left him out of shape, stressed, and with a shortened attention span. Dave used his frustration to study nutrition science, mindfulness, neuroscience and exercise. He knew he had to share his knowledge, and created phase2minds as a way to help people manage the demands of working in the tech industry.
