No Heart Attack 4 You?

Omega-3 fats (technically fatty acids, found abundantly in fish) are essential to human health. They reduce inflammation, and have benefits for every organ in our bodies, including heart, brain, eyes, and joints.

It is medical fact that most Americans have omega-3 levels in their bodies that are so low as to cause a wide variety of symptoms and put us at greater risk for pain, illness, disability and death.

Is having fish once a week enough? No; not unless you like to gamble with your health and your life. You need to be tested to see if you have enough of these critical fats to help protect you from heart disease, cancer, diabetes, neurological problems, anxiety, depression, skin problems, arthritis, pain, and much more ...

While many Americans simply take drugs to cover these maladies, research has shown that making sure that one has healthy levels of omega-3 fats can often improve or resolve them.

In our office we now offer a simple finger-stick, at-home test for measuring omega-3 levels and 20 other fatty acids including trans fats, saturated fats, and omega-6 fats. The test is from OmegaQuant. The cost to our patients is $130, which includes a follow-up visit to discuss the results.

You test the oil level in your car regularly because your engine will be damaged if the level falls too low. It is time for your first oil check for your body. Don't let yourself break down.

Contact us to get tested.
