Having trouble getting lab work that you want? Rest at ease as there is a way to order labs without a doctor!
Lab Work Is Necessary
Lab work, weather it be blood, saliva, urine, or dried urine testing, is a necessary part of getting a good overall picture of how your body is doing. Labs can be the key to unlocking the mystery of an illness as well as being a harbinger of something brewing that needs your attention. The hardest part can be when you are wanting to have lab work done, and you are having trouble getting them because you can’t find a doctor to order them. During our journey of recovering health – suspected heavy metal toxicity and food sensitivities, seizures, migraines, estrogen dominance, low progesterone, low functioning thyroid, and various vitamin and mineral deficiencies – I was hard-pressed to find a doctor that was willing to work with me to help obtain the lab work that I knew my daughter so desperately needed. When I discovered that it was possible to order labs without a doctor, it was a game changer for her health recovery! We could finally get a good picture of what she was dealing with and had information to move forward to help her recovery.
How To Order Labs Without A Doctor
Passionate For Truth now has a working relationship with Direct Labs and is able to offer you the ability to order labs without a doctor or a prescription. By obtaining the proper lab work, you can see for yourself where your body may have issues, and have the tools to move forward in your healing/recovery. By being able to order labs without a doctor, you are able to bring your results to whatever health practitioner you may work with who can interpret your results so that you can begin a recovery plan.
Ordering direct through the Passionate For Truth link to Direct Labs gives you full access to all available labs with the convenience of collecting at home or at an authorized lab near you. DLS uses only CLIA-certified medical reference laboratories that offer many Patient Service Centers close to where you live or work. Be advised that neither Passionate For Truth, nor Direct Labs, is able to recommend any lab work, and both are unable to interpret lab results.
You can get started here: First you order your test online, through chat or by telephone here. To locate a particular lab test that you are interested in, click on “Order Tests” to find a complete list of lab tests available. You can also find labs specific to a category that is of interest to you. By clicking on ‘read more’ at any test, there is a complete list made available of all things tested in that particular test.
