Nutrigenomics Testing - 23 & Me
A Healthier You
The science of nutrigenomics and epigenetics is growing at a rapid pace. We now know, with certainty, that both diet and lifestyle affect our gene expression. We now know that a large body of evidence and research show how each person processes nutrients uniquely.
The famous expression ‘one man’s food is another man’s poison’ is now scientifically supported. For example, certain genotypes are associated with food sensitivity such as gluten intolerance.
Our vitamin D receptor genes can play a role in whether we are prone to osteoporosis, depression, and even immune dysfunction! Once we know how our bodies are built, we can address solutions; personalized solutions.
Our genes even dictate how our bodies respond to high sulfur foods like garlic and onions, and how we metabolize ammonia, estrogens, and caffeine - yes, even caffeine! Genetic information is now available to set us on a diet that is totally personalized. Targeted supplementation that support your specific genetic profile is also at our fingertips with nutrigenomics.
You can now take your health to a level not thought to be possible until very recently.
With 23 & Me testing, you no longer need to guess what you need, you can test! Get started on learning how to optimize your nutritional needs and lifestyle today!.
The Guidance You Need
Spectra Cell Micronutrient testing is a 'Functional' test, showing how your body actually uses nutrients, and what it may be depleted in. Vitamin, mineral, amino acid and antioxidant levels are all evaluated. This is done through blood and is considered a 'live snapshot' of how your body manages nutrients. We call this test WHAT is going on, and Genetics is the WHY!
Food Sensitivity Testing
A blood test that tests for 150 food sensitivities and food chemical profiles. There is a difference between food 'sensitivities' and 'food 'allergies' which will be discussed.
Understanding Food Sensitivity
There are 3 categories of diet-induced inflammatory reactions:
Food Allergy (4-6% of population)
Food Induced Autoimmune Disease (3-5% of population)
Food Sensitivity (30-40% of population)
This blood test looks at top 150 common foods and food-chemical sensitivities, which are extremely common (30-40% of population) as noted. Conventional medicine lacks general knowledge about this immunologic complex and how it can be a source of inflammation in IBS, migraines, fibromyalgia, arthritis, metabolic syndrome, etc.
Food and food-chemical sensitivities have very broad and overlapping symptoms that makes it very challenging to identify trigger foods because symptom manifestation may be delayed by many hours after ingestion. With this blood test, we can identify which foods need to be modified and/or eliminated from your diet, taking the pressure off your immune system so it can function optimally. Get tested today
The Guidance You Need
Hormone testing is a saliva and urinary test that is done at home. These test are more accurate than blood testing since they evaluate functioning hormones in your system.
NEUROTRANSMITTERS are the brain chemicals that communicate information throughout our brain and body. They can affect mood, sleep, concentration, weight, and can cause adverse symptoms when they are out of balance. Neurotransmitter levels can be depleted many ways: Stress, poor diet, neurotoxins, genetic predisposition, drugs (prescription and recreational), alcohol and caffeine usage can cause these levels to be out of optimal range.
This saliva neurotransmitter testing done in the convenience of your home, measures the following key neurotransmitters:
SEROTONIN, GABA, DOPAMINE, NOREPINEPHRINE, EPINEPHRINE and HISTAMINE. Get tested today!
