DNA BASED NUTRITION
Personalized nutrition can be a way to promote positive health and nutrition by providing you with tools that effect behavior change to encourage small every day healthy choices while still having freedom of choice. Research shows that DNA based personalized nutrition plans increase motivation to change and can improve health status.
The NOW randomized control trial which was published in August 2020 in The Journal of Obesity indicated that individuals who received personalized nutrition advice had better outcomes at six months than those who did not.(1) From a clinical standpoint this is helpful for individuals who require a percentage of weight loss for medically necessary means such as for a required surgery or to promote fertility in women.

How Does Testing Work?
Testing can easily be done in my office with a simple saliva swab which will be mailed out to a lab. When your results are available we will discuss your personalized nutrition recommendations based on your unique genetic profile.
Meal plans and goal setting will be personalized to your report.
**Through February 2021 testing can be conducted remotely with a shipment
of the test kit to your home due to COVID-19 restrictions.
