- Do you always have something health wise going on? And don’t know why? It could be your genes!
- What if you could know what to do to ensure certain genes turn on or not?
- What if you were given a program specific for your genetic makeup to achieve optimal health?
- What if by knowing what your genes say you can plan for the future with prevention?
Now you can! With genetic testing. There was a time that genetic testing was un-affordable. Not anymore! In this appointment we develop your nutritional plan based on your genetics.
With Nutrigenomic testing, the goal is to fill the genetic gaps and supplement what you cannot make and build a “Multi-Vitamin” specific for your genes. When we do this, your body is at its most functional – and we see higher immune response and many ailments suppress. We will learn if you have defects in the following areas causing illness, fatigue, and other chronic issues:
- Neurotransmitter Processing
- Mitochondrial Function
- Inflammatory Potential
Listen to this Podcast to learn more about Genetic Mutations and why this level of precise knowledge of the body body is so important.
We offer Genetic Testing in our office with the analysis for $705.00 through Genomix Labs. This it the preferable lab as it is the most time and cost effective.
***We can analyze outside genetic reports as well (23 and ME) and formulate your specific protocol, it does take longer. This is a separate appointment listed in our scheduling software as 23 AND ME ANALYSIS APPOINTMENT. More info here.
Why Genetic Analysis?
While the “one size fits all” concept may work for accessories such as watches and scarves, it doesn’t apply to health and wellness solutions. That’s why we started offering genetic testing to help our patients unlock their own unique wellness potential. Having one’s Genetic Nutrition Assessment provides us the tools to make a supplement recommendations for that patient’s needs based on genetics and lifestyle. We will design the perfect multi-vitamin based on his or her genetic defects (SNPs).
As we become more aware of how specific nutrients may impact gene expression, it’s important to have the right tools available to help support our bodies.
What is Genetic Testing?
To learn what Genetic “SNP’s” may be causing imbalance in your body.
With the exception of identical twins, there are small differences between individuals in terms of the information that is contained in their DNA. It’s these differences that make each of us unique. For example, one DNA base or “genetic letter” (A, T, C or G) may be replaced by another. These variations can lead to different processes in the body, just as altering one letter in a word can completely change its meaning; for instance, from “g”oat to “c”oat. When the variation affects only one genetic letter, as in the goat/coat example above it, and is common within a population (present in 1% or more), it is called a SNP, pronounced “snip,” for single nucleotide polymorphism.
In some genetic variations there may be a piece of DNA deleted or inserted in a gene that may also lead to an IN/DEL variation.
How do you find out your SNP’s?
We use GenomixNutrition Labs to test SNP’s in our office. The test is a check swab that consists of a laboratory analysis of specific gene variants in your genetic material (DNA) that have been found to influence health.
