Fit your patients into their genes by offering weight loss through genetic, food allergy and sensitivity testing
The body’s unique genetic makeup determines how it best reacts to specific diet and exercise strategies for weight management. The science of genetic testing can help identify the genes that dictate how the body processes carbohydrates, fats, proteins and micro-nutrients and how patients respond to different types of exercise. Weight loss programs tailored to an individual’s DNA has been proven to be much more effective than one-size-fits-all programs because it takes the guesswork out of health management.
Genetic testing with Healthy Habits is done through a noninvasive, easy to use kit to collect cells from the mouth. It only takes about a minute to collect enough DNA and the saliva is then mailed directly to the lab for analysis. The Healthy Habits genetic testing program tests 56 genetic markers with 22 traits scored and includes food, nutrient, and exercise recommendations.
