Health and Wellness Genetic Testing
Genetic testing is the future of preventive health. Alongside the thousands of tests offered for medical conditions and diseases, the science and research behind genetic testing now help us understand:
- The specific genes that dictate how the human body processes carbohydrates, fat, protein, micronutrients, etc.
- How your inherited genes determine how effective certain fitness activities and foods are for you.
It is now possible to create an individually tailored nutrition and exercise programs that is based solely on your unique DNA! With the cost of genetic testing decreasing to where it is very affordable to use this technology for health management programs for you, there is no reason to wait to get the genetic information you need to help you live your best life. To help even further, we can provide this testing with a no-interest affordable payment plan.
Our recommended programs are tailored to your individual DNA. May individuals who have taken this step to better health and nutrition have shared that it has proven to be very effective for them. A recent study discovered that dieters in weight management programs tailored to their DNA lost up to 33% more weight than those following the usual “one size fits all” programs. Why? Because we can now take each individual’s genetic profile into account and provide a more detailed approach to care for our clients.
The Research Behind Genetic Testing
We live in an era of customization, where consumers can personalize nearly every aspect of their lives. From a health perspective, there is rising demand to integrate personalization into medical, nutrition, and wellness services.
Hundreds of clinical studies, and advanced medical research on genetic testing, are being done to meet this need of personalization. The research and science continues to rapidly increase, and has, since the human genome was first mapped back in 2003. Testing technology continues to improve, and the cost of analyzing DNA in the direct to consumer market, is decreasing. This means more research facilities around the world are able to make more discoveries about the connections between genetics and preventive health.
