The DNA Optimal Health Report

This report is designed to optimize health, longevity, and mitigate disease risk. This is achieved by personalizing lifestyle and diet choices, and when necessary, recommending medicinal grade supplements to offset any particular nutritional deficit that is due to a specific genetic variation.

Clinical Value

  • Highlights specific metabolic pathways that may require extra support and optimization with certain nutrients, vitamins, and minerals.

  • Provides an indication of the degree of susceptibility to the harmful effects of carcinogens.

  • Identifies specific genetic markers that provide a detailed look at your immune system and mechanisms. 

  • Analysis of genetic variations that are associated with high cholesterol, cardio-metabolic disease, vascular disease, and response to statins.

  • Response to foods that will affect gut health, microbiome, and systemic inflammation: gluten, histamine, dairy, oxalates, etc.

  • Insight into which diet type (the Mediterranean, low carbohydrate, low-fat diet) may be most suited to an individual based on genotype.

  • Strategies for weight management based on genetic make-up.

  • Insight into mood disorders: depression and anxiety

  • Genetic insight into neurodegenerative disorders such as mild cognitive impairment and memory.

  • Insight into optimal exercise and the personal inflammatory response and stress response to exercise. Also, can provide recommendations into improving athletic performance.

Pairing Genetic Testing with Functional Testing

Pairing the DNA Optimal Health Report with functional tests, such as the Organic Acid Test and Micronutrient testing, is recommended. For hormone evaluation, we recommend the DUTCH Test.  Your DNA is your blueprint but how these genes are expressed depends on epigenetic factors: environmental factors such as lifestyle, stress, diet and toxins. Functional testing allows validation of your genomic data to determine if your genes are being expressed to the best of their ability. Test pairing is the best way to create a program that specifically addresses individual, unique metabolic obstacles. 

DNA Optimal Health reports on the following areas:

Detoxification

Are you especially sensitive to fragrances or chemicals? Do you get sick more often than the average person? Does your fatigue level hold you back?

  • Inflammation

  • Oxidative Stress

  • Detoxification

  • Methylation

  • DNA Damage & Repair

 

Systems Health

Do you have IBS symptoms (constipation, diarrhea, bloating, food intolerance)? Do you suspect a hormonal imbalance? Do you have difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep?

  • Gut Health and Digestion

  • Bone Health, Skin and Injury Risks

  • Cardiovascular Health

  • Neurotransmitters, Memory, and Mood

  • Hormonal Health

  • Diabetes Type 2

 

Nutrition and Response to Food

Have you cut out a food group because you believe you are intolerant? Wouldn’t you like to know if your sensitivity is temporary or permanent?

  • Nutrients

  • Vitamin D

  • Caffeine

  • Gluten

  • Histamine

  • Lactose

 

Energy: Weight Gain and Resistance to Weight Loss

Do you experience frequent weight fluctuations? Are you doing everything “right” and still not achieving long-lasting results?

  • Adipogenesis

  • Mitochondria

 

Sports

Is it possible for you to actually over exercise? Do you experience injury often? 

  • Strength and Endurance

  • Inflammation

  • Mitochondria

  • Recovery

  • Risk of Injury

Sample Energy Panel report:

Energy: Weight Gain and Weight Loss Resistance

 

You have several genes that may cause an increase in abdominal fat and overall weight with a high saturated fat diet. The STAT3 gene has been extensively studied showing the relationship between saturated fat and weight gain. Limiting saturated fats to less than 10% of caloric intake is recommended.  Adhering to the Mediterranean diet with polyunsaturated fats will work best for you.  Time-restricted eating is also important to increase adiponectin and decrease abdominal fat. 

 

It is not accurate to look at one gene or even several genes in one panel to determine health outcomes and the best diet for you. Layering in genes from metabolism, gut health, inflammation, stress, and cellular health will provide a comprehensive and personalized approach.  This is why using a functional genomic approach is the only way to personalize a nutrition plan for you. 

 

A complete diet and program recommendation is provided in the ‘Personalized DNA Optimal Health’ section. 

Action Points:

  • Limit Saturated Fat intake to 10% of your daily caloric intake.

  • Make sure your cosmetics and cleaning products are non-toxic. Email our health coach for more information!

  • Practice Time Restricted Eating on a daily basis. Limit your eating window to 8 hours or less (ex:10 AM-6 PM)

  • If your daily demands do not already have you on your feet and moving, make sure to get up and walk, lunge, stretch, squat or do jumping jacks every 30 min throughout your day.

  • Consume healthy fats at each meal, such as olive oil, avocados, and nuts to help with satiety since the snacking gene tends to leave you feeling unsatisfied.
