“Genetics” is the study of genes, genetic inheritance, and gene behavior in different organisms. “Genomics” studies the nucleotide structure, DNA and RNA sequence of genes. In other words, genes are the ingredients and the genome is the recipe that determines traits such as eye color.
Science has proven just because we may have inherited genes for a certain disease doesn’t mean we will get the disease. Epigenetics studies the impact of the environment on gene behavior. Our genetic blueprint is only about 20% of the picture! The theory is by altering environment, foods (nutrigenomics), and lifestyle habits, we can potentially turn on healthy genes. Genomics can further illuminate a more precision pathway to long term health.
Genomic data is useful for determining
- Functional tests to perform and health markers to follow
- Lifestyle habits to change
- Nutrients or nutritional supplements to include or avoid
- Foods and food compounds that enhance or suppress gene expressioin
- Diets for specific goals such as weight loss, heart health, optimal digestion, or weight gain
- Exercise type and duration that will enhance performance, body composition, strength and energy
Genomic information is beneficial for guiding the path
- To help you reduce the risk of developing poor health
- To help you improve sports performance and recovery
- To learn what foods will promote weight and fat loss
- To know the best type of exercise to enhance fat loss
- To learn what nutrients you may need
- To learn what type of exercise and diet will enhance your health
After 15 years of studying genomics, and nutragenomics (how food affects or genes), I believe it is crucial information to know how our personal genomics can teach us to live differently and to either drive health or disease. Nutrition Genome (the first option)offers a comprehensive report for the cost, along with recommendations that will enrich our work together. If you have not decided to work together yet, get the test anyway and see what you find out. NOTE: If you already have 23andme data you can use it to generate a report from Advanced Genomic Solutions or any of the Genetic Direction Tests.
If you do not have 23andme and want to dig a little deeper the Nutrition Genome DNA Collection Kit and Genetic Report is for you. Click the link and order your test kit. When you receive your kit, follow the instructions to register your kit online. REMEMBER to put in my email firstname.lastname@example.org as the email you want to share your results with. Collect the sample and send it back. Your results and report will come back in about 5 weeks. We can include your genomic data, along with your history, functional tests, and lifestyle to give you a precision blueprint for a long healthy life.
