LEARN HOW YOUR GENOMIC FINGERPRINT CONTRIBUTES TO YOUR INDIVIDUAL UNIQUENESS.
Would you like to learn more about your body’s unique detox ability? Are you curious about how your brain neurotransmitter balance plays into your mood and behavior? Are you interested in finding out what factors affect your metabolism and can influence weight loss or nutritional plan?
You should because years of research has demonstrated an important component of good health is an appreciation of your genome legacy and finding ways to live in harmony with your DNA.
Each Genome Pulse test starts with a sample of your salivary DNA, and then is analyzed and translated into your personalized report. Your healthcare provider will utilize the results to create a custom healthcare plan encompassing the right diet, nutritional and lifestyle choices most appropriate for you!
Lifestyle genomics is an innovative branch of clinical genomics used to develop a more personalized approach to health and wellness. Years of research have demonstrated an important component of good health is an appreciation of your genomic legacy and finding ways to live in harmony with it.
THE AREAS COVERED IN THE GENOME PULSE REPORT INCLUDE:
MOOD & BEHAVIOR THROUGH NEUROTRANSMITTER BALANCE
Your neurotransmitters affect how you feel and act. These genes will tell you which neurotransmitters need to be optimized.
This area looks at well-known factors that contribute to heart health such as inflammation susceptibility of arterial blood vessels, cholesterol risk factors, circulation, and statin drug metabolism.
DETOXIFICATION & ANTI-OXIDATION
Our bodies have a built-in capability of detoxification. Gene variations in these pathways can alter the efficiency of detoxification.
CARBOHYDRATE & FAT METABOLISM
Our bodies breakdown fats and carbohydrates from our diets. This category will show how well it does this and what type of diet is best suited for you.
VITAMIN & MICRONUTRIENT REQUIREMENTS
The absorption of various nutrients such as Vitamin B12 and Vitamin D requires a cell transport system. These genes will tell you if this transport mechanism is optimal.
Methylation is a process your cells use for many purposes, such as DNA repair and regulation, protein metabolism, hormone synthesis & elimination, and many more.
It is common knowledge that we share more traits with our family members than we do with those unrelated to us. In fact, each cell of your body has the option of taking directives from two gene pools-- your maternal and/or paternal genes. For some cell functions, one or the other gene version is used; yet for others, directives can be taken from both.
Now, depending on the ancestry of your parents, the version of any given gene you inherited may be identical or may differ in their DNA sequence at one or more places. This variation at a specific position in the DNA sequence is known as a SNP (single nucleotide polymorphism). SNPs have different combinations, which can affect the way your genes behave and the known outcomes associated with those versions.
