Wealth of Health, Women's Health

For healthy measure

Daily charting

1)      Body temperature

If you measure your body temperature before you go out of bed in the morning every day , you will notice the trend. Following is the interpretation of the results:

 Temperature Interpretation What does it mean
36.6 C Ideal
36.4 – 36.8 C Normal
36.3 and lower  Hypothermia Something is wrong with your nutrition intake. Not enough fat consumption; some deviation in the endocrine system; diabetes
36.9 and up  Hyperthermia Presence of chronic infection

For example: If your temperature in the morning is on the lower end but becomes normal by the end of the day, you know that your body is able to restore its balance during the day. If your temperature continues to be on the lower end then it means that you live in chronic state of hypothermia.

2)      Blood pressure

Hypotension Normal (lower range) Normal Normal (Upper range) Hypertension
<100 / 60 100 / 60 – 110 / 70 110 / 70 –  130 / 85 130 / 85 –  139 / 89 >140 /90
–          Malnutrition

–          Dehydration

–          Depression

–          Stress

–          Lack of physical activity

–          Excessive weight

–          Smoking, alcohol

Your systolic (upper) blood pressure might be affected by the following factors:

– Time of the day

– Medications

– Physical activity

– Emotional state (Adrenalin raises stress levels of the person. If adrenaline is not adsorbed through sweat or tears, it will be trapped in the body of the person)

– Coffee, tea, etc

3)      Bleeding cycle

Your bleeding cycle is the reflection of your endocrine health which affects everything in woman’s body. It is also a reflection of how fertile and ready for healthy pregnancy the woman is.

Ideally, your bleeding cycle should be 28 days. The more stable and consistent the bleeding cycle is overtime, the more it says about woman’s reproductive and overall health. Maximum allowed deviation of menses that would be considered within the healthy range is +/- 1 day.

4) Bowel movement

You should have bowel movements every day and morning time is best to avoid re-absorption of toxins.

5) Sleep

Some research say that you should sleep between 7 – 8 hours a night in a completely lights free environment to facilitate production of melatonin.

How our bodies work largely depends on the work of hormones in our bodies. Our sleep and eating patterns as well as our lifestyle affect our hormones greatly. Sometimes we are too carried away with making healthy choices that we forget to take time to access if our healthy practices bring positive change, if any! The measurements I was suggested to chart everyday seem fairly simple to truck so I am very open to the exploration and experiment.

 

Annual check – up testing

Test Purpose Measuring markers
Complete blood count Physiological analysis /

Cellular evaluation

 

Measures red and white blood cells, platelets, hemoglobin and hematocrit in order to identify possible blood diseases and disorders

 

Blood chemistry test / Basic Metabolic Panel Biochemical analysis Measures different chemicals in the blood: sodium, potassium, chloride, bicarbonate, blood urea nitrogen, magnesium, glucose, creatinine and sometimes calcium. It can also include check of cholesterol (LDL and HDL) levels

 

Blood serum test

 

Assessment of kidney and liver conditions Measures the amount of the protein albumin (which carries substances such as hormones, medications and enzymes throughout the body) in the blood

 

Tumor market tests   Measures the level of potentially hazardous substances in blood, urine or body tissues

 

Total antioxidant status (TAS) and Total oxidative status (TOS) Assessment of oxidative stress and total antioxidant capacity

 

 

 

Gut micro- biome test Gut flora assessment

 

 
Hormone testing
