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/Weight Loss and Health Management.
FOOD SENSITIVITY MAPPING
IgG Food MAP measures 190 foods, plus Candida albicans and yeast. Individuals with neurological, gastrointestinal, movement, and behavioral disorders often suffer from IgG food sensitivities. People may continue to eat offending foods unaware of their potential adverse effects. Symptoms associated with food sensitivities may occur hours or days after the offending food was eaten because IgG food antibodies remain for a much longer time than IgE antibodies. IgE food allergy causes the release of histamine, producing an immediate hypersensitivity reaction. In contrast, IgG food sensitivity is triggered by the binding of complement to IgG food antigen complexes, causing an inflammatory response. This is a delayed hypersensitivity reaction in which symptoms appear anywhere from hours to days after eating the offending food. Elimination of IgG-positive foods may improve symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome, Autism Spectrum Disorders, AD(H)D, cystic fibrosis, rheumatoid arthritis, and epilepsy, according to numerous clinical studies.
This test is used to generate an in-depth report of the entire gut at the cellular level. It 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.

Mycotoxins (toxins from mold) are some of the most prevalent toxins in the environment. With this evaluation we can identify mycotoxin exposures and make recommendations for effective detoxification treatments.
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.
