Prevention Program



When a typical physician performs routine blood work, they are trying to assess your current state of health as well as explain any unusual symptoms you may be having. Doctors can detect disruption in the creation of white and red blood cells, cholesterol, and hormones, as well as odd levels of vitamins and minerals, blood sugar, protein, and inflammation, among other things, by testing your blood chemistry.  Doctors do this by examining your levels in relation to a predetermined abnormal range.  When levels fall outside of this range, doctors can identify and treat specific medical disorders. Isn't that fantastic?  If you're sick, of course. But what if you go to the doctor with symptoms or an overall sense of being ill, but your bloodwork comes back normal? You'll most likely be sent on your way with instructions to return if things worsen, or you'll be given prescription medications — even antidepressants — to relieve symptoms but no explanation for what's causing them. This is because standard blood tests, and conventional medicine in general, are focused toward diagnosing disease after it has already occurred, rather than preventing it in the first place. Our Prevention Program tries to prevent disease before it occurs by analyzing patterns of imbalance that, if not addressed, would result in chronic disease. Dr. Reza, who is trained to study a patient's blood chemistry within a functional range, examines the data through a much narrower lens, noting results within a smaller "normal" range and examining markers indicating a "high normal" and "low normal." This allows him to detect very subtle changes and imbalances in blood chemistry that indicate the onset of disease, allowing the patient to not only make required lifestyle changes to avoid prospective health issues from worsening, but also to explain why specific symptoms are present.

For example, hormone levels are commonly included in blood chemistry tests, and irregularities in their production can have a significant impact on how a patient feels. When thyroid or adrenal test results are abnormally high or low, you are usually sent to an endocrinologist for additional evaluation. Numbers are frequently monitored over time for consistency, allowing disease to grow, typically to the point where surgical removal of the problematic gland or other equally invasive treatment options are required. However, altering patterns identified in functional blood testing and evaluations in our prevention program provide signals to prospective health hazards that can be addressed right away.  Adrenal weariness is common prior to the full development of Addison's Disease (adrenal insufficiency) or Cushing's Syndrome (chronic high cortisol).  Insulin resistance is frequently present prior to diabetes.  Prior to a diagnosis of Grave's disease (overactive thyroid) or Hashimoto's disease (underactive thyroid), there are usually genetic factors or functional imbalances that can be successfully addressed through diet and nutrition to halt their progression, implying that no surgery, radiation, or lifelong hormone replacement therapy is required.

The Prevention program contains the following components:

  • Initial consultation & Evaluation . Dr. Reza will spend 90 minutes with you to evaluate the test results and treat the underlying cause of your health difficulties.  

  •  Comprehensive functional blood test . It will reveal important information regarding Sugar handling and metabolic issues, hormonal imbalances, immunological dysfunction, liver and renal function, inflammation, toxicity, key vitamin and mineral levels as well as other nutrient deficiency.

  •  A tailored and customized plan. This includes a personalized diet plan, a month of whole food supplements to aid with detoxification and gut regeneration. 

  •  Re-evaluation.  After 3 months of following the prevention program, another comprehensive functional blood test will be performed to compare the results of the initial blood test, which will provide new information regarding the improvement of overall condition such as sugar handling and metabolic disorders, hormonal imbalances, immune dysfunction, liver and kidney function, inflammation, toxicity, key vitamin and mineral levels, and other nutrient deficiency.   

  • Microbiome Test.  Microbiome testing compares a patient's microbiome to that of a normal/healthy individual using next generation genomic sequencing and bioinformatic analysis. A stool sample will be used to determine the composition, balance, and amounts of bacteria and fungi inside the gut. It also assesses the variety of the gut microbiota and makes recommendations for a better lifestyle. You will receive a thorough and customised Gut Report as part of the test, outlining: Microbiome diversity, Phyla balance, the presence of beneficial species, and the presence of harmful species.  It will also provide additional information to help you with your diet and exercise.

  • A month supply of customized supplements.  A side from microbiome research, the Gut Report provides a personalized selection of 4 to 6 Standard Process and MediHerb items depending on your test findings.

  • Private coaching with Dr. Reza.  6 coaching sessions with Dr. Reza .
