Genetic testing combined with functional medicine
Knowing your genetics can help you make personalized lifestyle choices to support your heart. Depending on your genetics, you could be more at risk for developing cardiovascular disease. However, that doesn’t mean you are destined to have a heart attack or develop heart issues.
Just because your genetics say one thing, doesn’t mean you don’t have any control over your health, because you do. Only 10% of your health is determined by genetics, while 90% is influenced by environmental and lifestyle factors.
In fact, knowing your genetics will allow you to make educated decisions and empower you to make specific lifestyle changes to keep your heart healthy.
Our staff at in2GREAT uses epigenetics and nutrigenomics to turn off bad genes and turn on good genes. Just because you have a mutation of a gene, doesn’t mean you are doomed. It simply means, your body may need more support in specific areas by taking targeted supplements to support optimal detoxification, paying special attention to stress management or altering your diet a bit.
We use 3X4 Genetics, a genetic testing company we selected to work with, which gives insights into your heart health risk surrounding:
- Blood Pressure
- Blood Clotting
- Glucose & Insulin
- Iron Overload
- Training Response
- Vascular Health
You can expect your genetic testing results to arrive in about 4 weeks. At that time, you’ll come into our Kansas City office, where we will review your results together. We will explain what your results mean to your health, and give you specific, actionable steps to implement to support your body and reduce your risk of certain health conditions.
Genetic testing combined with functional medicine analysis and recommendations, empower you and your provider with information that can support you with any health predispositions based on your genetics.
