Most of your quality of life today -- duration and how much suffering you will have -- is determined by the eight predictive biomarkers.
The 8 Predictive Biomarkers
- Hemoglobin A1C tests sugar and its conversion in your body. It should be less than five percent.
- High-sensitivity C-reactive protein (HSCRP) tests inflammation and repairability. It should be less than 0.5 to indicate that you can repair and are not in repair deficit.
- Homocysteine tests are conducted on plasma for levels of this amino acid. It is important for vascular health. It monitors detoxification so it is an all-cause morbidity and mortality marker. Value should be less than six.
- Lymphocyte response measures immune tolerance. You want a tolerant immune system. You want to be able to digest the foods you eat without immune burden.
- Urine pH after rest shows the acidity or alkalinity of your urine. It tests cellular magnesium. Healthy range is 6.5 to 7.5 after six to eight hours rest.
- Vitamin D test (25-HydroxyD) should range between 50 and 80. Vitamin D keeps your bones young and joints flexible. It also enables neural-hormonal regulation.
- Omega-3 index should be more than eight percent. This shows the amount of good fats your consuming.
- Urine test for damaged DNA (8-Oxo-Guanine) should be less than 25.This shows oxidative damage.
