We provide several types of evaluation options and a range of treatment recommendations.
The primary evaluation tool is "Functional Genomic Analysis" which assesses your genetic make up and
prioritizes solutions to maximize your genetic heritage.
Genomics is the study of very small changes in a person’s DNA. Each of us has about 25,000 different
genes made up of approximately 3 billion DNA units. Subtle variations in this DNA are not
only what make us look different from one another, but also create subtle health differences by changing
the instructions for everything our cells make and do; how we make hormones, handle inflammation and
what nutrients we need more or less of.
These changes translate to health effects that can be modified, when understood.
Variants in DNA (genes) can impact your ability to make and use nutrients critical for reducing inflammation, supporting
healthy circulation, and promoting strong immunity, emotional health, and the efficient removal of damaging toxins.
A Functional Genomic Analysis allows you to create a plan to optimize your health so you can feel better
and, in effect, slow down the aging process.
What is the goal of genomic analysis and report?
We know that our genes play a big role in our health, but most of us don’t have access to, or an understanding of how
to use this information; unless of course, we have done conventional genetic counseling for “hard wired” genetic faults.
This includes things such as Tay- Sachs and Down Syndrome. Currently, there are no reliable ways to correct
these types of genetic faults.
But we all have genetic variants – our unique genetic blueprints -- which implies that there are areas of our
individual biology that are strong, and some that are weak; and the ones that are weak can produce health problems.
To a large extent, whether a gene (or collection of genes) results in a health disorder is a function of how we “feed” our
genes – including actual food, but also environmental factors. The way that these factors produce changes in how
our genes are expressed is called “epigenetics.”
Functional Genomic Analysis (FGA) was created to analyze published research on how a range of factors impact
specific genetic variants, and how interventions – in the form of nutrients, herbals medicines, detoxification protocols,
and lifestyle factors – can modify the expression of a genetic heritage to allow for the best health outcomes.
How to get started?
If you have access to your genetic raw data (from 23andme or another service) you can register for the analysis directly.
If you do not, contact me for options for collecting your raw data. After I have the raw data, I will register you in the
Functional Genomic Analysis and run the analysis. You will have the option to fill out an online symptom survey and,
if available, I will enter lab data. I will then review the comprehensive report and then schedule a consult with the
founder of FGA, Dr. Bob Miller, to review my initial findings and gather his expertise. I then will write your final report,
with specific action steps. Then you and I will meet (in person or via Zoom) to discuss the report. As part of the service,
you can call/text/email me with questions for a month after the reporting meeting.
What does this cost? How long does it take to get a final report?
If you have your raw data, the cost is $375 for the analysis, report and month of follow up consulting.
If you do not have the raw data, depending on which option you choose to collect it, the added cost is $100 to $200.
If you have your raw data, the time from registering for the program to receiving the final report is about 2 weeks.
If you do not have your raw data at this point, the full process takes about 6 weeks.
We recommend well-researched, FDA-registered products. And provide published research
for all products on request.
We focus on assessment and treatment protocols for immune and neurological issues
with an emphasis on:
1. Food allergies (inflammatory issues and stress response/weight gain effects).
2. Toxicity (heavy metals, such as mercury and lead, are usually key; solvents and plastics
are usually secondary).
3. Nutritional deficiencies (macro and micro: protein, carbohydrates, fats and minerals/vitamins).
4. Chronic infections (Lyme is the most prevalent primary infection currently; latent viruses
can also be a factor, especially in autoimmune and chronic fatigue problems).
5. Environmental stresses (electromagnetic, mold, and inhaled allergens).
