Your body contains over 20,000 genes and 3 billion base pairs of DNA that make up the human genome that is a unique blueprint for everything that happens in your body. Nutrigenomics is the next wave in longevity and precision performance medicine. By utilizing the most comprehensive health and wellness genetic testing of genes based on the most robust scientific evidence to assess your unique biochemistry and health needs a personalized plan including a customized supplementation formula can be formulated. No more guessing what nutrients that you may be.

The most common signs and symptoms of DNA risks include:

  • Weak Detoxification: sensitivity to medications, alcohol, smells
  • Hormonal Imbalances: PMS, menstrual concerns, low body temperature, depression, anxiety, fertility concerns, mood swings
  • Nutrient Deficiencies: fatigue, skin concerns, weakened immunity, bone concerns, insomnia, mood changes, cognitive weakness
  • Chronic Disease: cardiovascular, diabetes, cancer
  • Digestive Imbalances: constipation, diarrhea, excess gas, bloating, foul-smelling stools
  • Fitness: poor recovery, less stamina
  • Food Intolerances: lactose; gluten
  • Weight Concerns

The principal risks of increasing your genetic predispositions include:

  •  Age
  • Chronic Inflammation
  • Excess Exposure: alcohol, chemicals, drugs, medications, mercury dental fillings, heavy metal exposure
  • Hormone Imbalance
  • Infectious Agents or Diseases
  • Low Nutrients
  • Microbiome Imbalance
  • Obesity
  • Poor Lifestyle – Diet, Lack of Sleep, Stress, Smoking

+How do I know which DNA test is right for me? 

DNA testing is requisitioned by our medical team who will guide you on which test is the best option for you. It may also be recommended that you have additional health and hormone testing to compliment the DNA testing to give you a baseline of where you are and can be used to monitor your progress.

We recommend a New Patient Visit with one of our practitioners for the most comprehensive approach to your health or a Pre-Lab Visit for a quick snapshot prior to lab testing as there are many tests available.  To complete your care, we recommend booking your Post-Lab consult 2 weeks after testing to review your results and receive your tailored health plan.

+How is this test different than the tests done at my medical doctor’s office?

Most of the advanced DNA testing is not ordered by your General Practitioner under OHIP based services on routine screening tests. Our goal is to assess your health by evaluating high-risk factors and then work in prevention.

+Are these DNA tests covered under insurance plans?

Third-party insurance companies may cover all or a portion of your consultations. Most the other integrative testing is not currently covered by private insurance companies. Please check with your individual provider for details and how to submit claims.

+How are genetic risk concerns treated?

Your Revivelife clinician will review all findings and create a tailored plan to you based on what are the root causes of your health risk imbalances. The use of tailored meal plans, nutrients, antioxidants, vitamins, minerals (oral or IV), herbs, probiotics, prebiotics, stress management, and or acupuncture that promote healing is often advised.

We recommend a New Patient Visit for the most comprehensive approach to your health or a Pre-Lab Visit for a quick snapshot before lab testing and a Post-Lab consult to review your results and receive your tailored health plan.
