And the nice part of this offer is.... it's free! As long as you mention that you read about it on my blog.
Health Labs offers direct to consumer lab testing. You don't have to have a referral from a doctor. This is a service they offer to those who want to have testing for allergies, heavy metals, hormone levels, anemia, or vitamin and nutritional testing. There's more, too, more than I can list. You pay online and your receipt (or ticket) allows you to go to any Quest Diagnostics Lab for the blood draw. They will send the specimen to Health Labs. We've used Quest Diagnostics numerous times. There's one not far from our home.
Generally speaking, I'd rather do just about anything than get blood drawn, especially if I'm paying out of pocket, but I can understand why some people would like to do this, if they can. For people who are trying to use alternative, holistic health care, their MD might not agree that certain tests are necessary. Others choose this because they have no insurance or are under insured. It's a choice that is out there for people who can afford to do this... many of the prices are very reasonable.
This last week, Health Labs came out with their list of the Top 100 Health and Wellness blogs. My humble blog showed up at number 28. I was surprised and somewhat bewildered to find my site on their list. Happy, too, of course, and I was honored to be included. I always feel like I should write back and say but.. but.. have you seen Meg's blog? or Jasmine's or Tom's or Yasmina's or any of the many newer blogs out there written by people I know? There are so many talented writers out there. I wish I had time to read every one of their blog articles.
Anyway, as part of being one of their top blogs and to introduce people to their services, if there is anyone out there reading this article who would like to have their CoQ10 levels tested, go to their site and mention my blog, Studio Foxhoven. Tell them you saw it here and the test is free.
Oh, and by the way, I was slightly embarrassed to find out my site was the only one without a dedicated facebook page and twitter account. So, I have updated my Studio Foxhoven Facebook page (originally meant for craft work) to reflect my writing. Anyone is welcome to follow me on Twitter (@TerriReinhart), but be forewarned - it's mostly political.
