Each DNA test (Gold, Platinum, Elite) provides a specific look at three genetic components:
Traits are observable characteristics some of which are genetic and some are influenced by your environment
Genes are transferred from your parents based on specific sequence of DNA. Whether certain genes are expressed or suppressed can change your health. Environmental factors and habits can help you optimize your genes.
SNPs are (single nucleotide polymorphisms) are “mistakes” made in cells copying genetic instructions. (evidently we’re NOT perfect!). They can change your unique disease susceptibility or response to drugs.
What you’ll learn:
Diet and nutrition strategies, including specific foods to help you overcome genetic predispositions and live your healthiest
Dietary vitamins and supplements, including type and amount, to help you overcome predispositions for optimal health.
Specific exercise strategies, including cardiovascular, muscular strength, and overall physical activity, to help you overcome genetic predispositions and get faster results in less time.
Strategies for stress management, sleep techniques, and lifestylestrategies to overcome genetic predispositions.
Additional testing recommendations to see how genetics may affect you so you can live your healthiest life.
… all curated specific to your genetics.
What I Do:
I’m not a medical doctor and I don’t diagnose or treat. As a health and strength coach and Medical Fitness Expert what I can do is interpret your test results and turn them into actionable strategies you can take with your exercise, lifestyle, and exercise nutrition habits. Together we can set reasonable goals, identify steps to reach them, adjust for your schedule and personal schedule, then track and measure.
We create a plan using personal genetic insight about you.
Why Test DNA:
Going this one step further to include your genes and traits cuts down on time and by eliminating trial and error. I’ve partnered with a company that offers great value at a reasonable price. I’ve found it to do two things for me: (1) replace habits that weren’t helping me reach goals with ones that were more specific (2) reinforce habits I already had (and as a, exercise psychologist I know that KNOWING what you do is the right thing amplifies your results
It’s the way I offer data to make the right personalized adjustments to optimize health.
