Imagine if you knew which Antidepressant worked best for you
Before you went to the Doctor?!
Personalized Genetics Testing is as simple as a mouth swab. The information we get from this swab is a huge step in the direction of personalized medical treatment for your addictions. It can tell us which medicines will work best with your body’s metabolism. You don’t have to spend extra time waiting to see if the anti-depressant you are taking is “going to work” This can potentially save valuable time in treating your underlying depression or anxiety disorder. It can also tell non-addicts which pain medications will work better than others, potentially preventing a future addiction. This is especially true with analgesics like Morphine and Dilaudid, and sedatives like Xanax, Klonipin, and Valium.
PGX can also help determine if you are a carrier of the genes that make you susceptible to certain cancers and life shortening illnesses that you may pass on to your children.
Personalized exercise plans and nutrition plans can be made for your specific genetic code, saving you time at the supermarket and gym, and allow you to reach your ideal body weight and homeostasis. This is the information age and the more you know about your genetics, the better armed you are to live a vibrant, addiction-free life.
