WellnessFX has expanded! We are now able to offer affordable blood-testing and expert consultations to more than 4,000 locations nationwide in 46 states and Washington D.C. Chances are, you’re just a short drive, train ride, or walk away from changing your life.

WellnessFX has been gearing up to go national for months now. Our wildly popular low-cost e-Checkup more than doubled our user base, and we’re ready to serve an even greater number of people who are frustrated with today’s healthcare. The wellness revolution is just beginning.

[This is a re-post from Recomp Hacks: A Health and Fitness Journal]

In an earlier post, I describe a blood test I took in November through WellnessFX.  With only a few changes, I have been able to improve some of these markers in just 4 months.

I had a follow-up test done at the end of March and saw some great results.  The second test was not through WellnessFX, but I mocked-up my new scores alongside their original graphics.

As a reminder, here was my action plan to improve some of the markers:

I switched to a moderate carbohydrate diet based off The Perfect Health Diet in early 2013.  Otherwise I have followed this plan quite well.  I also lost about 5 lbs.

Metabolic syndrome is becoming more and more common in the United States. According to PubMed, metabolic syndrome is “a name for a group of risk factors that occur together and increase the risk for coronary artery diseasestroke, and type 2 diabetes.” The two most important risk factors are extra weight around the middle and upper parts of the body, and insulin resistance.

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!
