Sears’ Healthy Life D/Omega Project Enrollment

Participant registration – Welcome from GrassrootsHealth Nutrient Research Institute and Dr. Sears!

Join the Sears’ Healthy Life D/Omega Project for you, your children, your future children… for anyone who wants to know how their vitamin D and omega-3 intake and supplements are working for them.

How could you benefit from this project?

Key information will be gathered from each participant about their levels of each of these nutrients via blood spot tests done either at home or at the Sears office — the Omega-3 Index and the Vitamin D (25(OH)D) serum test. In addition to the tests, information about your health will be gathered through the online questionnaire, and optional personal targets/goals can be added with the myTrackers feature in the myData-myAnswers Personal Health System.

It is with these measurements, from both the blood measures and your health information, that the GrassrootsHealth Nutrient Research Institute can put the power of its demonstrated science and methodology to provide personal education and information for you.

What are your nutrient levels? How are they affecting you?

How do they seem to be associated with any various health outcomes in the total group (over 15,000) from pain to asthma to preterm births to risks of various cancers, autoimmune diseases, and other conditions?

How do your levels and health outcomes compare with others?

What do other nutrient researchers recommend?

What is participation?

  1. Enroll in the project at the link below. This project has two blood spot tests that can either be done at home with a blood spot test kit, or in the office with your other tests. There is a lab fee of $99 which is part of the enrollment.
  2. Answer the health questionnaire and then bring your “Thank you for your order” email and participant ID into your next appointment at the Sears office if doing the in-office test.  **Both the payment of the lab fee and questionnaire are to be done for each participant separately (e.g., parents, children).**
  3. After your blood spot cards have been completed, please send them in to GrassrootsHealth (addressed envelope provided).
  4. You will get your result notification by email within 7-10 days after GrassrootsHealth’ receipt of the cards and questionnaire.
  5. Look to see if you have achieved the recommended range of 40-60 ng/ml for D, >8% for the Omega-3 Index
  6. Use the calculators linked from your results pages to help you determine what adjustments you might need to make to achieve those levels.
  7. Retest in 6 months to make sure you have reached your target levels!

Test for Omega-3 Index and Vitamin D each 6 months for a minimum of 2 sets of tests and information each year. Each time you test, there is a $99 lab fee and completion of a new health questionnaire.

Included automatically with your participation is the use of the myData-myAnswers personalized health software along with special reports to you showing analysis of your individual data as well as comparisons of where you are with everyone else in the project.

We are expecting to show how your nutrient actions affect your health outcomes, to enable your own health decisions – for you and your family.

** Enrollment in this special project includes your authorization for GrassrootsHealth to share your questionnaire data and nutrient results with the health office of Dr. Bill Sears.

If you have previously received vitamin D results in the D*action project, please log in here.  Otherwise, if you are a new participant
