Genetic Testing & Interpretation

Take the guesswork out of your medicines and supplements with genetic testing.

 

 

Save time, money, and efforts by knowing exactly what your body needs to perform it’s best!

 

  

Genetic testing we offer: 

Nutrigenomics Testing

FAQ: Who should get Nutrigenomic testing? Answer: Everyone!

FAQ: Why get tested? Answer: To determine your unique nutritional needs based on your DNA analysis to prevent disease and perform your best!

Nutrigenomic testing accurately identifies your genetic protein variations to identify sites of metabolic weakness. These key proteins are involved in enzyme conversion, nutritional delivery and signaling pathways in the cell that affect your ability to regain and maintain your metabolic functionality and, ultimately, your health.

 

“More than 75% of all patients have significant genetic polymorphisms (SNPs) in the most important nutritional metabolism pathways.”

Our testing identifies your specific genetic weaknesses in 5 key metabolic areas:

  1. Methylation
  2. Neurotransmitter
  3. Mitochondria
  4. Detoxification
  5. Inflammatory Potential

Overcoming these metabolic weaknesses with the right supplementation allows you to maximize your genetic variations and maintain optimal physiology and optimal health.

Pharmacogenomic (PGx) Testing

                 FAQ: Who should get Pharmacogenomic testing? Answer: Anyone taking medications for:

  • Hypertension
  • Hyperlipidemia (high cholesterol)
  • Arrhythmia 
  • Anticoagulation
  • Hyperhomocysteinemia
  • Venous Thrombosis
  • Depression 
  • Anxiety
  • Bipolar Disorder
  • Psychosis
  • ADHD
  • Musculoskeletal Pain
  • Arthritis 
  • Migraine
  • Neuropathic Pain
  • Seizure Disorder

Serious and fatal adverse events (AEs) more than tripled from 2004 to 2013

  • 85% of AEs are due to drug dosages and mechanisms of action.
  • $289 billion = Cost of AEs in the United States ANNUALLY
  • 7% of hospitalizations are caused by AEs.
  • AEs rank between the 4th and 6th most common cause of inpatient death.

Pharmacogenomic testing analyzes your specific genetic variants that influence the function of drug metabolizing enzymes, and ultimately, lets you know if the medication and dose you’re taking is likely to produce the therapeutic result you need or a toxic adverse effect you do not want.
