Genetic Testing: Nutrigenomix

Genetic Testing 101

DNA is the genetic material in our cells that makes us who we are. You inherit this genetic material from your parents. The base pairs of DNA give instructions to the body to perform certain actions. For example, some base pairs contain instructions for making enzymes to digest food.

When you take a genetic test, it gives you a report of your genetic profile. Having the information about your genetic profile helps you understand the personal issues your genotype contains.




Nutrigenomix is the study of how individual genetic variation affects a person’s response to nutrients and impacts the risk of chronic diseases.

When it comes to your diet, a one-size-fits-all approach may not lead to optimal health. Research has shown that personalized dietary advice based on your DNA is more valuable than general population-based recommendations. Nutrigenomix is a safe, easy-to-use kit that enables our practitioner to develop a dietary plan that is tailored to your unique genetic profile.

Using a saliva sample, the Nutrigenomix Test helps us optimize your diet to your genes in order to reduce your risk of certain health conditions and diseases. Each gene tested is significantly involved in the way your body processes or metabolizes a certain nutrient or dietary component. With that information, we know which foods and nutrients your body needs more of – or less –  to prevent chronic diseases such as cancer, heart disease, stroke, and type 2 diabetes.
