Customized Care Plan Based on Your DNA

nutrigenetics
Individualized programs to support weight loss and metabolism, optimize nutrients for hormones and mood, improve sleep and more.

How it works

Lifestyle factors such as nutrition, stress, sleep, medications, and our environment affect our genes. When some genes are turned ‘on’ they act to inhibit responses and make it harder for us to do things like lose weight or sleep through the night. We can use diet, lifestyle and supplements to turn genes off.

Have you tried and stuck to a healthy eating pattern and not lost any weight? You may have genes that reduce your metabolism and make it harder to lose weight.

Do you feel that you are hungry more often than your friends or family? You may have genes that enhance hunger signals and diminish feelings of fullness.

Information your DNA will reveal

Weight

Analyzes your genetic predisposition for weight gain, ideal measures for weight loss, food cravings and metabolic rate.

Diet

Understand which diet would best suit you based on your body’s metabolism of carbohydrates, fats, protein and dairy.

Detoxification

Assesses variations in your liver’s detoxification pathways. This identifies how you metabolize hormones, toxins and medications and your ability to process vitamins and minerals.

Neurotransmitters, Hormones and Sleep

Quantifies the amount of brain hormones you produce, the receptors available to bind to these hormones and how quickly or slowly you metabolize them. All of these factors affect your mood, stress response, internal clock, ability to sleep and ability to handle life’s ups and downs.

Exercise

What type of cardio and resistance training is best for you based on your level of tissue oxygenation, inflammation and recovery.

Inflammation and Immunity

Examines your body’s genetic predisposition to stimulate an inflammatory response and your risk for allergies, infections, auto-immune disorders and inflammatory disease.
