Nutrigenetic Testing


Using the latest technologies in Nutrigenetics, The Center for Applied Health Sciences offers a battery of tests to analyze your specific genetic variations.

Have you ever wondered why a certain diet or exercise program works better for some people than others? It’s all in our genes. Or why some“apparently healthy”people die early regardless of their lifestyle habits, while other folks can tolerate environmental insults like smoking and alcohol and live past 80! Understanding your unique genetic make-up (DNA) can provide powerful insight into optimizing health and wellness. Although we cannot change our DNA, we can make changes to our diet and lifestyle, which can impact our health and lives for the better. Simply put, “genetics loads the gun, but it’s the environment (diet and lifestyle) that pulls the trigger.”

Using the latest technologies in Nutrigenetics and Epigenetics, The Center for Applied Health Sciences offers a battery of tests to analyze your specific genetic variations. The results provide a scientific insight into how your DNA influences your overall health and an action plan to implement simple changes through exercise and nutrition. A wide range of tests help determine your risk for and prevention and management of chronic disease insight into how your DNA influences your overall health and an action plan to implement simple changes through exercise and nutrition. A wide range of tests help determine your risk for and prevention and management of chronic diseases and to achieve optimal health and performance:

DNA-Based Nutrition Testing

  • Bone Health & Osteoporosis
  • Antioxidant & Detoxification Status
  • Stress & Irregular Sleep Patterns
  • Heart Health
  • High Blood Pressure & Abnormal Cholesterol Profiles
  • Weight Management & Insulin Sensitivity

DNA-Based Fitness Testing

  • Strength and Power
  • Muscle Endurance
  • Cardiovascular Capacity
  • Body Composition
  • Post-exercise Recovery
  • Nutrition for Elite Athletic Performance

These simple, non-invasive assessments will help you identify and understand your own personal gene variants and how they impact your everyday health. Nutrigentic testing can help you make sensible lifestyle decisions and create your unique road map for optimal health and wellness. Your plan will provide personalized diet, exercise, and lifestyle changes and help you understand which dietary supplements are useful based on your DNA variants. The CAHS team is also working to develop epigenetic profiles or “fingerprints” to determine how various training, nutrition, recovery methods, and lifestyle factors affect the expression of various genes. This approach represents a leap forward in tailoring customized, athletic performance enhancement programs. Put simply, this program takes the “cookie-cutter” guesswork out of diet, exercise, and supplements.
