What are your blood markers telling you?

In this episode, we discuss why looking at your blood work in a marker-by-marker fashion may not only be misleading but causing more issues.

We share which ranges we work off of, which information you're missing by looking at single markers, and the other factors and markers to consider. Please refer to the timestamps below for a list of markers discussed.

If you've ever supplemented according to deficiencies in your blood markers or your doctor has explained your blood work by individual markers to you, you definitely want to listen to this episode!

Our aim with this podcast is to educate you and provide you with tools to optimise your life by healing your gut.
