About the Author
Dr. Dicken Weatherby is one of the world’s leading experts in Functional Blood Chemistry Analysis. He graduated from the National College of Naturopathic Medicine in Portland Oregon in 1998. His bestselling book “Blood Chemistry and CBC Analysis – Clinical Laboratory testing from a Functional Perspective“, has become one of the seminal texts on the Functional Analysis of blood test results. In response to the increased demand for his training material Dr. Weatherby put together his "Functional Blood Chemistry Analysis Training Program" at Blood Chemistry University, which walks physicians and health care practitioners through the process of analyzing their patients' blood test results from a more functional, nutritional, and preventative. He also created a “Blood Chemistry Software” program to make it easier for health care practitioners to extract functional and nutritional information from their patients’ blood tests and to give them a powerful analytical reporting tool to use with their patients.

This is a excellent, in-depth question by question discussion guide to the 'Nutritional Assessment Questionnaire 1.5'. The book has been 'recommended reading' by the Nutritional Therapy Association in their training program. A complete NAQ questionnaire is included. Note: while the book says you can get digital copies of some of the materials, I was not able to acquire a digital questionnaire copy by sending emails as directed by the book. But after doing a thorough search on Google, I was able located PDF copies of the forms matching those in the book. Or you could simply scan in the forms and charts from the book to make working copies.
The book's approach is 'functional medicine' and the intended target audience is health care professionals, dieticians, nutritional counselors, not the nutritional newbie. That being said, I think anyone with a good understanding of nutrition fundamentals and a lively interest in functional medicine could utilize the information in this book. The book, as a teaching text about how to interpret the results of an NAQ, makes specific recommendations for further assessment as well as generic supplemental support. It's a great resource for the pro-active patient.
Since it is an expensive book, I'd encourage people to preview portions of the text through Google Books. That way you'd have some idea if the book will be useful to you. Many of the 'further assessment recommendations' would probably need to be accomplished through a health care provider, but there's certainly enough assessment tips that could be accomplished at home. The nutritional information is very valuable to me because it's symptom specific. The recommendations on supplements is important because it's generic and not tied to a specific brand of products.
I consider this a valuable addition to my family health library and a good investment.
tests. I think these books are a must for someone who wants to stay healthy.
Did you know the symptom "Fingernails chip, peal or break easily" is an Upper Gastrointestinal System disfunction? Or "Dry Flaky Skin" is in the section Essential Fatty Acids. EFA deficiency is often due to hilary dysfunction. Each Symptom has Supplemental Suport to help this disfunction.

Other indications are a B vitamin deficiency or serotonin/melatonin imbalance.

For example, the Nutritional Therapist will check for the tenderness in the Chapman reflex for the liver as indicated in the book for blood sugar Dys-regulation.
This book is used in conjunction with the NAQ used by the NT. (Nutritional Assessment Questionnaire) which includes questions regarding diet, lifestyle and medications, and then the client rates their symptom burdon 321 questions.
