What Is the Matrix Assessment Profile and Why Might It Be Better than Regular Lab Tests?

When your doctor recommends a panel of tests to either…

  • identify symptoms of a specific illness or disease,
  • or to rule out possible conditions to narrow down the culprit

…these tests usually consist of the removal and analysis of bodily fluids ranging from blood, urine, and saliva.

What Do these Regular Test Results Do for You?

These tests are used to identify the symptoms of the condition, but can’t identify the root cause.  They identify abnormalities a related to the normal function of body systems, and in some cases may show no abnormal function.

With the test results, your doctor will prescribe medications to treat the symptoms, and here lies the problem.  Doctors generally prescribe medications that treat symptoms of a condition and not the root cause of your ailment.

If you have an ear infection, the flu or strep throat, a 10-day course of antibiotics will cure your condition.  But, what if the tests confirm you have a condition, such as:

  • High Blood Pressure
  • Type 2 Diabetes
  • Migraine Headaches
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
  • High Cholesterol
  • Stress or Anxiety Disorder
  • Depression
  • Fibromyalgia

With these conditions your doctor will prescribe a long-term course of medicines to treat the symptoms.  So, your condition is only kept under control as long as you take the medicines, but once you stop taking the medicines, run out of your supply, or forget them before you go away on vacation, this could lead to possible catastrophic results.  Do you really want to be held captive to the pills to maintain your health, or keep you alive?

 What happens when tests results are inconclusive

Now, what if you report symptoms to your doctor, but your doctor can’t identify the source or root cause of your ailment, or test results are inconclusive and treatment for the symptoms are not effective?  You may even seek a second or third opinion hoping one of these doctors can finally identify the root cause of your condition.  With western medicine, you are often left with two options when a treatment can’t be found…

  1. Go from doctor to doctor hoping one of them can identify your condition, and hope they don’t tell you yet again that they can’t find anything wrong, and maybe it’s all in your head.
  2. Learn to live with the symptoms.


Here’s How the Matrix Assessment Profile can Identify the Root Cause of your Ailment

Due to this above mentioned scenario, millions of people have begun to turn to natural treatments as a way to eliminate the unpleasant side effects of prescription meds or find alternative medical treatments to finally achieve relief.  A popular option for the narrow results of lab tests is a tool developed by NASA nearly 30 years ago to identify potential health issues of astronauts who spend weeks or months in weightless environment of outer space.

This program called the Matrix Assessment Profile, now allows you to submit urine and saliva samples, which are analyzed and a complete biological analysis, which includes identified changes or abnormal function of cells, tissue and body systems, which identify the root cause of your ailment.

You and/or your doctor can finally understand the root cause and the source of your health issues down to the cellular level, and not just the symptoms?  Illness and disease are generally the result of changes in your cells, tissue, organs or body systems.  This simple and painless test looks for By identifying the root cause in these various body systems, and once you cure the root cause of your ailment, the symptoms generally go away on their own naturally, and in many cases for good.  In other cases, lifestyle changes, diet modifications and ensuring your body has sufficient levels of nutrients, vitamins, amino acids and antioxidants are all that is needed to keep you healthy.

With the biological analysis in hand, you can work with your own doctor, or follow the prescribed treatment plan to finally achieve perfect health and freedom from your ailment.

If you are tired of taking pills to feel well, have been suffering from chronic illness for more than six months, or doctors are telling you it’s all in your head, then it may be time for you to learn about how the Matrix Assessment Profile can help you become your own medical advocate.

    Hello. Anybody home to answer my queston?

    Hello: I’m a medical technologist with over thirty years experience in clinical pathology. I would be interested to know just what specific laboratory tests are you talking about or employing in your MAP process? Any currrent peer review data you would care to share?

    I am a keen reader of hivehealthmedia, so as a doctor I was disappointed with this post.

    Your description of a physicians assessment is too simplistic. Symptom control is not the only option for chronic disease, disease control is. I agree that allopathic medicine does not have all the answers, but to suggest that natural remedies have the answers is too simplistic. To suggest that it might lead to a cure is exploiting the needs of patients with chronic illness.

    What is the evidence base for the matrix assessment ?

    One rather disappointed reader.

      Hi Chetan

      Jarret & I don’t always agree with the position taken by our guest authors. In some cases, we trash the posts. In other cases, like this one, I chose to publish the post in the hopes that it would spark debate. In some cases, the differences of opinion between the author and the readers may be subtle…in other cases…it’s a full-out intellectual brouhaha.

      I hope we can keep you as a reader and I welcome your criticism of this post. Personally I agree with your position about this article, but I also know that there are a lot of reasonably intelligent people who has lost faith in the allopathic model and have turned exclusively to “alternative” methods of health

      Hello Chetan, I welcome your critique of the article. In my own experience with western medicine, when I had a blood test or any other type of test, the goal was to identify symptoms not root cause. On the other hand, the MAP uses urine and saliva samples and through there analysis process of looking down to the cellular level, define biological changes that are at the root of the problem. Then with diet, exercise and following the prescribed protocol, the patient can reverse the issue and return to good health without the symptoms. I have also used the MAP test myself.

    Hi Jarret, thanks for posting my article. How do I make updates or corrections to a published article? Thanks, Ken

      • January 26, 2013 at 10:32 pm

        Hi Douglas, thanks. I think the way I did it in the past with Jerret was I sent the original text of the section to be modified, and the modified text so he could just cut and paste.

        I found a few sentences on my latest post that need clarification. I will email them to you.

        Thanks, Ken
