What Genomics Can Do For Your Practice

Genomic medicine is transforming healthcare, and enabling an entirely new business model for physicians and nutrition professionals. Typical one-size-fits-all, trial and error, and crisis-driven approaches to healthcare are expensive, inefficient, and out-of-date. Effective prevention strategies are limited. More personalized approaches to healthcare are growing, but they still often lack precision. Patients are becoming more involved in […]

Vaccinomics: A Personalized Approach

Many factors can play a role in determining the effectiveness of vaccines, including the interplay between genomics, epigenetics, and the microbiome. The study of how these factors influence how a person develops immunity from a vaccination is called Vaccinomics, and may help revolutionize our approach to this approach to population-based health. Twin studies have shown […]

Pharmacogenomics

Adverse drug reactions, over prescribing, under prescribing, and trial-and-error attempts to identify appropriate medications puts patients at risk and wastes billions of dollars every year. Half of the U.S. adult population uses at least one medication on a regular basis, and 15% are using five or more. Adverse drug events among adults are estimated by the […]

Talking With Your Genes: The Food-Gene Conversation

Here is a little-known fact: the food we consume at each meal “talks” with our genes. Yes, as improbable as it seems—a vibrant “conversation” occurs every time you eat or drink. While it has been known for centuries that food can be healing medicine, it was not until the completion of the Human Genome Project […]

Genomic Testing & Personalized Medicine Support Workplace Wellness

You may have noticed the terms personalized medicine, individualized or personalized dietary plans, nutrigenomics, and precision medicine cropping up in the news, at professional conferences, or even among conversations with family and coworkers. All these refer to a new technology called genomics, developed as part of the Human Genome Project. But what do they mean? […]

Genomics and Breast Cancer: Case Study

Meet Alicia. She’s 67, vibrantly healthy, and loving life. But 12 years ago she lived in constant fear. That’s when her mother died from estrogen receptor positive (ER+) breast cancer. Alicia was told it was not the hereditary kind, so not to worry and there was nothing she could do except to get regular mammograms […]

Beginner’s Guide To Genomic Medicine

Genomics studies the interactions of the environment and our DNA. With 20,000–25,000 genes that contain over 3 billion base pairs of DNA, our genome provides the blueprint for everything that happens in our bodies. Genomic Tests Genomic testing starts with collecting a small DNA sample with a simple cheek swab. At our certified laboratory, we detect […]

Introduction to Genomics

A genome is a complete set of genetic instructions. With 20,000–25,000 genes that contain over 3 billion base pairs of DNA, our genome provides the blueprint for everything that happens in our bodies. Genomics identifies and analyzes variations in the DNA called single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs, pronounced “snips”). Over time, a small change can have a […]
