A thorough understanding of these specific genes ​provides advanced medical practitioners and patients with uniquely personalized treatments for optimal health in the areas of:

Embrace a gene-based personalized diet and lifestyle to optimize your health and wellness. Genetic testing for diet is designed to assist in the development of a personalized healthy eating plan based on individual genetic differences.

Genetic diet and nutrition testing takes the guesswork out of weight management. Being one of the most comprehensive and accurate weight-related genetic tests available, these results can lead you down the path of successful weight management and introduce long-term healthy habits.

There is no one diet or way of eating that is correct for everyone, but genetic diet and nutritional testing will identify the best way for each person. This panel tests several gene variations that impact metabolism, absorption, and storage of fats and carbohydrates, as well as eating behavior to understand how an individual’s genetic profile will impact their response to most effective healthy eating plans such as:

Genetic diet and nutrition tests report on the following areas:

Who benefits from this panel?

Patients who:

It is important to note that genetic diet testing is not a diet plan and simply having the test done in no way contributes to weight loss. It is a tool that your healthcare practitioner will use to better understand your genetic profile, helping them to recommend a healthy eating plan best suited to you. Weight management and healthy eating are integral to long-term health and can prevent poor health and various chronic diseases. Genetic diet testing is used by medical practitioners to gain insight into their patients’ requirements for healthy eating.

Genetic Health

Overall genetic health testing is designed to identify any potential lifestyle diseases and to optimize well-being and health by personalizing lifestyle and diet choices. Establish the optimal nutrition necessary for good health, longevity, and disease risk mitigation.

The personalized medicine approach to healthcare will allow for more precise, predictable, and preventive health care that is customized for the individual.

To help patients live healthier lives, we test for multiple gene variants to identify any precursors to lifestyle diseases:

Who benefits from this gene panel?

Someone with any of the following:

Genetic Fitness Testing

Embrace a gene-based approach to optimal health and exercise performance. Genetic Fitness tests genetic variants that influence injury risk, recovery, as well as power and endurance performance.

The effectiveness of training and sports performance is affected by key biological areas. Genetic fitness testing can help personalize a training strategy that optimizes genetic potential. This panel identifies the right lifestyle, nutrition, and environmental interactions to optimally express an individual's genetic potential.

Results provide insight into various biological areas that impact training, performance, and recovery. These include blood flow, energy and fuel consumption, cardiopulmonary capacity, caffeine metabolism, and inflammation. These insights can be used to personalize a training program and identify appropriate training and nutritional choices.

Ultimately, by using this report, you can determine the best way to maximize athletic potential, prevent injury, and optimize recovery to reach peak levels of conditioning.

Genetic Fitness testing reports on the following areas:

Who benefits from this gene panel?

The test is suitable for elite performance athletes as well as recreational athlete looking to maximize fitness potential and reach peak levels of conditioning.

Genetic Tests to Improve the Signs of Aging

Genetic Tests to Improve the Signs of Aging

Genetic tests that analyze genes that comprise our skin aim to improve the visual signs of aging by focusing on interventions that are suited to your unique DNA. We can’t change our genes, but we can change our lifestyles. All the genetic variants analyzed in the Genetic Skin test are modifiable through appropriate environmental interventions.

This test analyzes 18 genes involved in important areas related to skin health

Based on the results of your genetic skin test, personalized lifestyle recommendations can be given for improved skin care and skin health with the aim of decreasing the visible signs of aging.

Neurological Genetic Testing

Neurological Genetic Testing

Neurological genetic testing includes genetic variations involved in key biological processes that contribute to the risk of developing mental health disorders. These variants may give insight into the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of disease. Knowledge of an individual’s genotype will provide diagnostic insight and assist in determining optimal treatment strategies for individuals suffering from, or at risk for, mental health disorders.

This panel analyses 30 genes that have been shown to have significant associations with key mental health disorders, including:

The genes included in the test are involved in the following key biological areas related to mental health:

Genetic Estrogen Testing

Estrogen is the primary female sex hormone. Improving estrogen metabolism is of benefit to women who suffer from estrogen-dominant conditions such as endometriosis, premenstrual syndrome, and uterine fibroid tumors.

Genetic Estrogen testing analyzes for gene variants that have been shown to have an impact on how estrogen is metabolized and how estrogen is processed in the body, and if the processing of estrogen and related compounds is efficient and healthy and, therefore may help individuals’ lessen the risk of breast cancers.

Healthcare providers can use genetic estrogen test results to prescribe individualized nutritional and lifestyle interventions to mitigate breast cancer risk in women with high-risk genetic profiles. The personalization of diet, hormone, and nutritional supplement recommendations can assist in improving estrogen metabolism.

DNA Estrogen reports on the following areas:

Pharmacogenomics (PGx)

Pharmacogenomics (PGx)

Genetics can affect an individual’s response to medications, whether in every day activities or in the work place.

Pharmacogenomics (PGx) is the study of how a person’s genetic makeup affects that individual’s response to medications. PGx results help you develop a strategy to optimize medication therapies. Test results are used to try and maximize drug efficacy while minimizing adverse drug effects and drug-drug interactions.
