Nutrigenomic testing is performed to create wellness plans that are customized to each individual based on their own unique DNA. Studies have found that diet and lifestyle have profound impact on how these gene variants are expressed in the individual: therefore, we believe that detection and customized personalization of a wellness plan is the optimal way to achieve your best health! Since Nutrigenomics is a personalized medicine approach, this testing allows our practitioners to customize preventative health measures to each individual patient in the following areas: Diet and Weight Loss, Health Management, Sport and Athletic Performance, Women’s Wellness, Neurological Health, and Skin Health.
DS Renew Program
DS Renew Program is a medically supervised fat loss and muscle maintenance program customized to your unique body composition and metabolism. We can further formulate a safe and effective diet and exercise plan based on your genetic results.
IV Therapy ensures the most efficient delivery of vitamins and minerals to your body. Every person has unique individual wellness needs – so our providers can further create a personalized nutrient formulation customized from your genetic results.
The K-Laser is a class IV Laser that provides non-invasive therapy offering an alternative to pharmaceutical treatment. Our laser provides therapy that manages pain and inflammation while accelerating tissue regeneration. Laser therapy works by increasing circulation which creates an optimal healing environment that can reduce inflammation, swelling, stiffness and pain.
Metabolic Mapping done through saliva profiles gives a thorough measurement of bioavailable hormone levels. This testing better allows for a “real-time” tissue sample of your sex hormones and adrenal function. This is often a foundational first step to addressing current overall health balance. This testing can also be further customized through the “blood-spot” or “urinary” options to include other hormones and analytes such as insulin, blood lipids, vitamin D, thyroid hormones, heavy metals and essential elements like selenium and iodine along with nutrient levels, neurotransmitters and much more.
Food Sensitivity Testing
The Mediator Release Test is a functional measurement of diet-induced sensitivity pathways that quantifies the inflammatory response to foods and food chemicals. This test helps providers identify and quantify which foods and chemicals are causing immune cells to react.
This test is a clinical tool that measures brain function which aids in the diagnosis and treatment of cognitive disorders to provide insight into the root cause of cognitive dysfunction. It is important for health care providers to understand individual brain function and this testing helps us look beyond your symptoms to see brain activity that may be the root cause of cognitive disorders. The scan itself helps us to differentiate between anxiety vs ADD, poor restorative sleep versus depression, concussion effects, migraine headaches, cerebrovascular inflammation, vascular dementia versus Alzheimer’s just to name a few. These diseases are otherwise quite difficult to tease through with traditional means. It also has shown to be very helpful in appreciating medication side effects as they may contribute to cognitive dysfunction — as well as helping to decide when it’s appropriate to consider starting or stopping controlled substances such as sleep medications and/or stimulants.
This test is used to generate an in-depth report of the entire gut at the cellular level. This test assesses the DNA of organisms living in the gut and provides insight into the unique microbiome of the patient. The “Map” looks at all the good/bad bacteria, yeast, parasites, immune health, digestive enzymes, fat absorption, gluten intolerance, inflammation and much more. It is truly a “complete” picture of your entire gut function and even slight alterations of diet and/or supplements can greatly improve overall gut health resulting in markedly improved quality of life. Through this type of customized testing we can better get to the root cause of gut dysfunction and focused treatments can optimize brain-body-gut balance.
Alterations in the immune system can result in chronic inflammation and autoimmune disorders. Cytokines are important mediators in the immune response and imbalances of these mediators play key roles in alterations of the immune system. Immune Mapping provides an advanced health assessment allowing individualized treatment plans based on specific immune responses.
