“Every doctor I
have showed this book to has said “I want a copy”. The
book is filled with useful information. To me it’s going to
be required reading and something you must have on your bookshelf”.

"As a clinician practicing functional medicine, I find Dr.
Weatherby's book, Blood Chemistry and CBC Analysis extremely valuable.
Most lab manuals limit their information to the diagnosis of established
disease, yet the majority of patients fall somewhere along a continuum
where disease may not be evident, but functional aberration is apparent.
However,one needs to be able to decipher the more subtle alterations
in lab testing in order to notice those changes. Admittedly, even
after receiving my DC and MS, I was still quite weak in this area,
as it was not adequately addressed during my educational experience.
This book helps to fill in the blanks for me. It is also a great
practice-enhancing tool, particularly when you are able to help
patients whose complaints have been largely misunderstood due to
their complex, yet less obvious presentations. I am looking forward
to their next book on more advanced lab testing"

“ Blood Chemistry
and CBC Analysis is a groundbreaking work. It is excellently written,
organized and indexed. More importantly it offers a wealth of practical
clinical information on the functional interpretation of these tests.
It is literally loaded with invaluable additional related information.
A superb “must have” resource book for the integrative

"I would like to
commend you on your seminar series. It contains precisely the kind
of material today's Naturopathic physician needs to know to run
a first-rate practice. I only wish the information had been available
20 years ago. I look forward to continued attendance at these informative,
I would hope that someday these seminars would be integrated into
the core curriculum of our medical schools to teach student physicians
from day one how to understand the anatomy, physiology, pathology,
diagnosis, treatment, and the practice management of our nation's
Keep up the good work!

This is a totally practical
seminar. At last a method of analyzing blood chemistry tests that
bridges what we learned at medical school and what we see in practice.

Useful information that is extremely practical.
William Halcomb, DO, MD- Mesa, AZ
This is a practical system of applying basic medical lab test results
into a tool that effectively evaluates the systems of the body that
are experiencing duress but have not yet progressed into pathology.
I highly recommend it!
