Genetic Testing

There’s an important connection between our genes, nutrition and health. Nutrigenomics takes what we know from nutritional science and genetics, then reveals how it all works together to shape your health.

For all Nutrigenomic analysis I mainly use Puregenomics (an online, 100% science-based, practitioner-only platform). If you have already done a 23andMe or Ancestry DNA test, I can use your raw data to create reports full of personalized nutrition and lifestyle recommendations.

From your Nutrigenomic analysis report we can get insights for the following trait categories:

  • Vitamins, minerals & omega-3s (These traits are responsible for the body’s ability to make and/or use certain nutrients)
  • Detoxification (These traits are responsible for the body’s ability to render toxic substances harmless and/or remove them from the body)
  • Glucose metabolism (This trait is responsible for the body’s ability to process this simple sugar by using it as energy or storing it in cells)
  • Metabolic & weight management (These traits are responsible for how efficiently the body uses certain nutrients from the diet, and the tendency for cravings)
  • Cognitive health & memory (These traits are responsible for the ability to remember, including mental capacity for thinking and learning)
  • Immune health (These traits are responsible for factors that contribute to the performance of the immune system)
  • Energy & fitness (These traits are responsible for exercise performance potential and for the body’s performance ability under certain exercise conditions)
  • Cardiovascular health (These traits are responsible for several factors that contribute to the health of the heart and blood vessels)
  • Gastrointestinal health (These traits are responsible for several factors that contribute to digestive tract health)
