A GlycoCheck Test May Help Prevent Metastasis

GlycoCheck header

You can’t heal from what you don’t know. Tests can now provide vital information about early warning signs of cancer and metastasis, as well as heart disease, stroke, inflammatory disorders, diabetes, bacterial infections, hypertension, and so much more. Your body is no longer a mystery.

Don’t stress and guess. Take the GlycoCheck Test.

Instead of just hoping you will never have to deal with tragedies such as a stroke or cancer metastasis, you can now have hard data to direct strategic medical actions and lifestyle changes. You may look and feel healthy on the outside, but inside, your organs could be slowly starving. This could lead to breakdowns in your microvascular and capillary systems and the silent spiral of health challenges. Fatigue, hearing loss, high blood pressure, slow wound healing, leg cramps, memory loss, and hair thinning could all be signs your capillaries are beginning to lose functionality. 

This blog provides a brief overview of Glycocalyx health and the GlycoCheck Test, but please visit their website for more research, details, and testing locations.

Why is glycocalyx health important?

Since you may have gone your whole life without ever thinking about your endothelial glycocalyx, let’s start with a definition: 

The endothelial glycocalyx is a carbohydrate-rich layer lining the vascular endothelium (veins and capillaries). It is connects to the endothelium through several “backbone” molecules, mainly proteoglycans and glycoproteins. Capillaries represent 99% of your circulatory system, and this vast protective micro-thin gel lining of all capillaries touches each of your trillions of cells. In summary: Healthy Cells = Healthy You. Please click here to learn more about its composition and functions.

A healthy glycocalyx structure can support the continuous delivery of nutrients, hormones, and the elimination of waste flows through the capillaries. However, a weak glycocalyx does the opposite—weakens nutrient absorption, offsets hormones, and clogs your body with toxins. All of which can be part of how cancer develops in the body.

Exercise, quality sleep, managing stress, reducing toxins, etc., are all ways to improve glycocalyx health. Taking an Endocalyx Pro supplement is also clinically proven to restore, regenerate, and protect your endothelial glycocalyx.

What is The GlycoCheck Test?

Organ starvation is one reason that diseases begin in the body. Remember, diseases are dis-eases: your body is not at ease. When the capillaries start to lose their function, your vital organs can’t receive the nutrients needed or adequately detox. 

Quick note on detoxing: Of my 7 Essentials System®, Essential #2 is Eliminate Toxic Exposure, and it is an important action for healing breast cancer and living a vibrantly healthy life. Please click here to read more blogs on effective ways to detox. 

GlycoCheck is a pioneering all-in-one video microscope and software solution. It quantifies capillary density, capillary blood volume, blood flow and red cell velocity, and endothelial glycocalyx function with non-invasive technology. Currently, it is the only system that allows researchers and doctors to unravel the mysteries of microcirculation and how its breakdown contributes to the development of various diseases. In short, it tells “the rest of the story” by peering deeply inside your microvascular networks.

How is the GlycoCheck Test performed?

The GlycoCheck Test is safe, quick, and non-invasive. A GlycoCheck registered clinician will place a video microscope camera under your tongue that captures the live movement of red blood cells as they travel through microvessels.

Each test checks 3,000 vascular segments, which process 3,000,000 capillary markers that track the movement of the red blood cells and how they interact with the endothelial glycocalyx. The information is used to create a single overall health score that quantifies the differences between a healthy and unhealthy circulatory system due to the deterioration of the endothelial glycocalyx.

On a personal note, my husband and I tested our Glycocalyx score back in July of 2023 and were both surprised by how low our scores were. We have been supplementing with the Endocalyx supplements, so stay tuned for the results. 

The MicroVascular Health Score™

GlycoCheck is the only automated, all-in-one system that includes patented software technology, integrated with a dedicated computer, digital video microscope camera, and calculation of a MicroVascular Health Score™. The score and microvascular health report are conveniently delivered within minutes of testing.

The score represents the overall health of your microvascular system. It’s calculated by capillary blood volume, red cell velocity, and PBR (a measure of glycocalyx thickness). A higher score indicates a healthier microvascular system. When the transparent glycocalyx lining in the microvascular system is healthy, so are your blood vessels—which are essential for health and vitality.

For us Breast Cancer Conquerors, preventing metastatic cancer cell activity is at the top of our list. Recent studies have found endothelial glycocalyx dysfunction may play a significant role in the metastasis process. Therefore, testing your glycocalyx health can give you critical information for preventing recurrance. 

Essential #7: Adapt Very Early Detection

My 7 Essentials System® is a complete, step-by-step educational program that shows you how to prevent “dis-ease” (body not at ease) and create vibrant health naturally. Testing will give you specific information about your body and insight into any diseases that could develop. The quicker you address a problem, the easier it will be to solve it. 

Below are a few safe and reliable tests that could provide critical information to guide your healing journey. 

  • SonoCiné. The SonoCiné AWBUS scan provides greater visual detail of breast tissues, including the axilla (underarm/lymph nodes). This is extra helpful for 45% of women with dense breast tissue or implants, as mammograms often have trouble providing clear and detailed images. Learn more about The SonoCiné AWBUS here.
  • Onconomics Plus RGCC. This test provides crucial information on the presence of circulating tumor cells (part of cancer stem cells) and their concentration in people with a confirmed diagnosis of specific forms of cancer, including breast, colon, and prostate cancer. It will also tell you which natural (and pharmaceutical) substances would help your body the most. Learn more about RGCC testshere.
  • Galleri® Test. This test scans for 50 types of cancer, many of which are not commonly screened for today, in one simple blood draw. Learn more about the Galleri® Test here.
  • Thermography. Digital infrared thermographic imaging” (DITI) can spot physiological breast cancer signs 6 to 8 years before any palpable mass appears. Learn more about thermography here.
  • Hair Mineral Analysis. Your hair directly reflects your body’s tissues. This test looks at 37 toxic metals and nutritive minerals to shine a light on underlying health issues. Learn more about hair mineral analysis tests here.
  • Nutrition Genome Test. This test covers DNA changes and provides comprehensive action steps for your diet and supplementation. Learn more about the test here. 

Remember: Regardless of which test you use, ALWAYS back it up with a second test. No stand-alone screening tool is 100% accurate.

Survive & THRIVE!

In addition to testing, an integrative and comprehensive HEALING PLAN can help you restore and rejuvenate every aspect of your mind, body, and soul. Your doctors will give you a treatment plan, but in order to THRIVE, not just survive, a healing plan is in order. This is why I created my groundbreaking integrative online program hosted by world-class experts. Click here to get started today.
