Eagle Vision Nutrition Comprehensive Blood Analysis
An annual comprehensive blood analysis is one of the best ways to keep track of your health. The lab markers found on a comprehensive blood analysis can catch potential health problems in their early stages and help one customize health strategies to prevent potential disease development.
Unfortunately, most physicians run only very simple and routine lab work and miss a lot of vital information about their patient’s health. This is often due to a combination of a lack of training in advanced lab markers, issues with insurance reimbursement and fear of insurance audits on their practice.
Most of the advanced tests offered by are unavailable or unknown to many doctors and are not covered by insurance. It is our goal to provide our followers with the latest in blood screening so they can better control their health.
At Eagle Vision Nutrition, I developed a comprehensive blood analysis that is extensive and covers all the advanced markers to help reveal disease patterns. These tests can give a strong indication on why you may be dealing with issues like fatigue, hair loss, weight gain, memory loss, infections, cardiovascular complications, kidney disease and diabetes.
For example, one marker I look at is homocysteine, which is a breakdown product of the amino acid methionine in its conversion process to glutathione. High levels of homocysteine are associated with stroke, dementia, Alzheimer’s and heart disease.
Comprehensive Blood Analysis Markers
- Immune system function
- Metabolic function
- Liver and kidney function
- Cardiovascular risk factors
- Lipid panel -Iron markers
- Vitamins B12 and folate
- Vitamins A and D
- Zinc and Copper
- Minerals and electrolytes
- Comprehensive thyroid panel
- Inflammatory markers
- Parathyroid function
What Would This Test Cost in a Medical Setting
If you went to your doctor to get all the advanced markers on this CBA, they would bill you and your insurance well over $5000. Due to the high billing level, most doctors will choose not to bill the insurance for fear of having the claim rejected and possibly sparking a practice audit from the insurance company.
If you ask your physician to run this, they will typically just run about half the markers which gives an incomplete analysis.
By partnering with LabCorp, I have been able to bring down the costs of these lab markers and offer a fantastic rate for cash paying clients and followers.

GI Map Comprehensive Stool Analysis by Eagle Vision Nutrition
Almost every person can benefit from a GI-MAP gut health assessment. If you are looking to achieve optimal health or if you’ve been chronically ill and frustrated without a diagnosis for years, this test is for you!
Some Conditions That Warrant Testing From Eagle Vision Nutrition:
- Autoimmune diseases
- Digestive complaints, diarrhea or constipation
- Brain fog
- Skin problems, like acne and psoriasis
- Mood disorders, depression, and anxiety
- Diabetes and weight loss issues
The GI-MAP® includes pathogens (bacterial, parasitic, and viral) commonly known to cause intestinal gastroenteritis. It’s important to note that not all individuals with positive findings for pathogens will present with symptoms. Many factors, including the health of the individual, the transient nature of some pathogens, and the presence and expression of virulence factors all contribute to an individual’s symptoms.
Toxins are a type of virulence factor produced by certain pathogens. Since GI-MAP is a DNA-based test, results reflect the levels of pathogenic strains carrying the toxin genes, not the levels of any toxins that may be produced.
- C. difficile Toxin A
- C. difficile Toxin B
- Enterohemorrhagic E. coli
- E. coli O157
- Enteroinvasive E. coli/Shigella
- Enterotoxigenic E. coli LT/ST
- Shiga-like Toxin E. coli stx1
- Shiga-like Toxin E. coli stx2
- Vibro cholerae
- Yersinia enterocolitica
Recent studies have shown that nearly 50% of the world’s population may harbor H. pylori. And, although many carriers are asymptomatic, H. pylori is known to have a causative role in ulcers, chronic gastritis, and stomach cancer.
Additionally, in early phases of colonization, patients may experience hypochlorhydria followed by a change to hyper aciduria. Over time, additional H. pylori strains may colonize, including those with Virulence Factors and increased disease potential.

Trillions of microorganisms inhabit the human intestine to make up a complex ecosystem that plays an important role in human health. Commensal bacteria extract nutrients and energy from our diets, maintain gut barrier function, produce vitamins (biotin and vitamin K), and protect against colonization by potential pathogens.
- Akkermansia Mucinophilia
- Bacteroides fragilis
- Bifidobacterium spp.
- Clostridia (class)
- Enterobacter spp.
- Enterococcus spp.
- Escherichia spp.
- Faecalbacterium prausnitzii
- Lactobacillus spp.
- Firmicutes/Bacteroidetes Ratio
Many bacteria measured on the GI-MAP are considered opportunistic pathogens, as they only cause disease and illness in some individuals, particularly the immune-compromised. Many individuals come into contact with opportunistic bacteria and experience no symptoms. Most sources consider these microbes to be normal in the stool. However, they can cause gastroenteritis and inflammation at high levels in vulnerable patients. Symptoms may include diarrhea, loose stools, abdominal pain, or even constipation.
Overgrowth and excessive colonization by opportunistic bacteria may occur when the commensal bacteria are impaired by poor diet, antibiotic use, parasitic infection, or a weakened immune system. When intestinal permeability is present (see zonulin), these microbes could escape the lumen of the gut and infect extraintestinal sites.

Fungal organisms are commonly found in the human digestive tract, but fungal overgrowth can cause illness in susceptible individuals. Fungal growth may be localized in the body. For instance, Candida spp. may be high in the large intestine but normal in the small intestine, and vice versa. In a patient with suspected fungal overgrowth, additional tests may be necessary to understand the complete picture of fungal overgrowth. Urinary D-arabinitol or antibodies to Candida are sometimes used.
- Candida albicans
- Candida spp.
- Geotricum spp.
- Microsporidia spp.
- Rhodoturula spp.
- CMV- Cytomegalovirus
- EBV- Epstein Bar Virus
A parasite is an organism that lives and feeds on a host organism at the expense of the host. The GI-MAP tests for pathogenic parasites and protozoa (some of which are non-pathogenic) most commonly occurring in the GI tract. Sources of exposure should be identified and eliminated to prevent reinfection.
- Blastocystis hominis

ANTIBIOTIC RESISTANCE GENES
The GI-MAP includes results for detection of antibiotic resistance genes in the microbiome. If an antibiotic resistance gene is present, then that class of antibiotics is designated POSITIVE for antibiotic resistance. A positive result for the presence of resistance genes for a given antibiotic indicates that the antibiotic is not an ideal choice for an antibiotic protocol.
Antibiotic resistance genes apply to all of the microorganisms found in the fecal sample. Since microbes can rapidly share DNA under stress, the presence of antibiotic resistance in any organism is reason enough to avoid that drug class.
