Getting personal with your DNA {genes} may help you decrypt the body code and understand what is the optimal nutrition for your body;
so you can start eating smarter and live at your fullest potential

Personalized Nutrition + Genomics = Nutrigenomics

The concept of “personalized medicine” involves diagnostic tests and specific treatments based on the data and assessment of each individual patient. In addition to personalized medicine we are now able to personalize nutrition and lifestyle recommendations based on your genetic makeup. This concept is called nutrigenomics* and it allows us to understand how foods you consume may affect your metabolism and ultimately the genes; as well as how specific nutrients may support the appropriate gene expression. Understanding this will guide the recommendations for the optimal food and lifestyle selections for your individual biochemical and genetic makeup.


*  There are two terms associated with how food affects your genes: nutrigenomics and nutrigenetics. Nutrigenomics concerns how the food you consume affects the gene expression (genes being turned on or off) while nutrigenetics is how your genetic variations affect response to nutrients (your ability to use certain nutrients such as vitamins, for example). Technically these terms are very different, however, many practitioners combine both meanings and use the term collective term –  nutrigenomics.

Why Nutrigenomics is of Importance?

  • FOOD = INFORMATION, your genes respond to your dietary choices and understanding how exactly this happens may guide a more precise nutrition and lifestyle recommendations. 
  • Your genotype may determine food choice-related disease and or disease risks.
  • Specific dietary changes may be used for treatment and or prevention of a particular health condition.


What Is Epigenetics?


Epi means “above” and epigenetics is concerned with how the external environment and or factors affect the  the expression of genes (without actually changing the genetic code). Nutrigenomics is a branch of epigenetics and thus both are concerned with how the external factors (environment and food) affect the gene expression, turning genes “on” or “off.” The easiest way to think about epigenetics is: “genes load the gun and the environment pull the trigger” 

Is {Nutri}Genomics Consult For You?

Getting personal with your DNA (genes) and knowing what you do not know may empower you to finally understand why is that no matter what you have tried, is not getting you the results, even though you have been diligent with your dietary and lifestyle choices. Perhaps the “healthy” choices you have made are not optimally healthy for your body, or maybe your genetic makeup does not allow for utilization of certain nutrients you are consuming and your metabolism is just not functioning at its optimum.

We offer two solutions to helping you decode your genomic potential:

1. NutriGenomiX  {NgX} : Personalized Nutrition Solution

This option is for you if you are curious about how foods you are choosing might be affecting your body and allows for the assessment of nutritional needs for your unique genetic makeup. We decode optimal dietary choices for you and provide a personalized plan that matches your DNA to help you eat smarter, feel stronger and look, feel and perform your best.

2. NutriGenomics+ {Ng+} : Personalized Health, Wellness, Nutrition + Lifestyle Solution

This option is for you if you already have your 23andme raw data. We help you get the most out of your 23andme data and use it to assess how your body reacts to nutrients, herbs/botanicals, medications, and what genetic predispositions pertaining to food choice-related health risks you may have. We also utilize your blood type {when available} to personalize your nutrition plan even further. 
While you may find multiple genetic analysis services available today, there is only one complex software tool that allows clinicians to “run” the raw data from 23andme and “decode” it into clinically relevant information which helps to determine and guide the therapeutic and preventative recommendations such as nutrition and lifestyle modifications, nutraceuticals {supplements} and even which pharmaceuticals {medications} might be more suitable for your body. You may then take the information on pharmaceuticals to your treating doctor for a more personalized approach to your prescription medication(s) {if you take any}.
If you do not already have your raw data from 23andme, you can get started here:
