Naturopathic Genetic Test Analysis & Assessment
Naturopathic Genetic test analysis stems from Nutritional Genomics and is a form of precision medicine, utilizing nutrition and dietary supplements precisely targeted to the specific individual’s genetic, biological, social, and environmental profile.
Q: What does this mean for an individual?
A: Empowering individuals to make lifestyle modifications specific to their needs.
Q: What type of information can be expected?
A: Numerous dietary components can alter genetic and epigenetic events and therefore influence health. A very comprehensive report will be generated and will include detailed information on the following:
Sensitivities such as dairy, caffeine and gluten as well as nutritional needs. Knowing how the body absorbs, transfers and utilizes certain vitamins and minerals is key to optimizing food and supplement choices.
Diet & exercise and injury prevention; knowing the metabolic profile, we can formulate a plan to target weight loss goals as well as optimize exercise programs and routines. Also, providing insight to injury susceptibility, allowing for lifestyle modifications and preventive measures.
Detox profile - a key component of health and wellness- will help identify the need for specific nutrients to enhance this natural process, as well as identification and avoidance of certain food, medicine or substances to prevent accumulation of toxic substances within the body.
Immunity; Inflammatory response can play an important role in immune health and autoimmune disease development. Knowledge of specific gene markers can help identify risk factors, provide opportunity for prevention and management of chronic illness such as asthma, inflammatory bowel disease, ulcerative colitis, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, lupus and much more.
Mental health & stress response; assessment of neurotransmitters such as serotonin and dopamine can help better manage anxiety, depression and response to short term and long term stress.
Hormonal assessment; identifying underlying genetic predisposition to excess “bad” estrogen and testosterone can help with prevention of specific cancers affecting breast, uterine and prostate.
Sleep; an insight to quality of sleep, response to circadian rhythm patterns, for example ability to fall asleep, transitioning between stages of sleep.
