GENETICS IS NOT YOUR FATE – IT IS INFORMATION YOU CAN USE TO TAKE
MEANINGFUL ACTION THAT WILL CHANGE YOUR HEALTH OUTCOMES
Epigenetics is the understanding of which genes are turned on and which ones are turned off and factors that turn them on and off. We use this targeted information to help you protect and enhance your health now and in the future. We aim to prolong your health-span – the number of healthy years you have remaining in your life, not just how long your live.
IntellxxDNA offers two profiles:
- General Wellness and Prevention Genomics
- Alzheimer’s Genomics
We have done both profiles ourselves and found them to provide useful insights that could potentially allow us to make health, wellness, and nutrition choices precisely targeted to personal genomic information – rather than general recommendations good for the whole population. We recommend doing both these profiles together.
GENERAL GENOMICS PANEL INCLUDES:
COGNITION GENOMICS PANEL INCLUDES OVER 200 points tested:
What we like about this particular genomics company is that they test for genes that are predictive AND they show you what can be done to modify those risks. By understanding where a pathway is blocked it is possible to use supplements, nutrition and specific types of exercise to work around these areas of risk using alternate routes to avoid or minimize risk.
High level of precision. Many companies such as 23&Me use only SNP – specific gene testing technology. Intellxx offers a second level of verification and enhancement of accuracy using PCR testing to get a more highly accurate answer about key genes. We recommend using IntellxxDNA with their combined SNP and PCR technology to achieve this level of verification for the key genes that need this refinement to give the most accurate results. Our practice orders the SNP and PCR testing together for this reason.
IntellxxDNA will offer further panels in the future and having the SNP plus PCR data together Intellxx plans to allow testing for the majority of new developments at just the cost of the further analysis of information without additional cost of testing the genes.
Test results – take about 4-8 weeks
Insurance – does not generally cover this type of testing
Privacy – various options to keep your data fully private are available
