Genomics Testing: A Game Changer for Your Health

By: Dr. Patty DiBlasio, MD, MPH.

If pandemics have taught us one thing, we have learned that each human being has a unique response to infectious threats. Many respond to the virus without any symptoms at all; some express mild to moderate symptoms, but a small group develops severe symptoms that can lead to organ failure and even death.

Why is that? What risk factors contribute to our body’s over-response to infections? Why do some people acquire an auto-immune disease, other chronic pain or cancer, and still others heart/lung/gut issues?

The answers to these questions are complex but likely come from a myriad of influencers that include lifestyle choices, environmental exposures and toxins, and individual genetic/genomic templates.

What if you could take a deeper dive into your specific genomic blueprint? [You can!]

What if the knowledge you discovered could dramatically impact your health for the better? [It can!]

What actually is Genomics? It’s the science of small changes called variants in your DNA. Your DNA is ultimately your “book of you” or your “user manual.” Getting to know yourself down to your DNA level can truly help you optimize your health.

At Physio Logic, we use cutting-edge IntellxxDNA™ genomics testing that permits us to provide state of the art personalized medicine. IntellxxDNA™ allows for Dr. Patty–our new Functional Medicine physician–to look at over 600 variants in your DNA that make you unique but can also contribute to health challenges and chronic diseases. Your genomics saliva test takes a close look at your gene variants that relate to the transport in your body and brain of various nutrients and hormones. Results will help identify nutrients and hormones that you may need more or less of than others.

IntellxxDNA™ genomics testing can be used to:

  • Untangle allergies and gluten issues
  • Evaluate detox pathways
  • Optimize weight and blood sugar
  • Uncover inflammatory pathways, including ones that put you at greater risk for viruses and bacteria
  • Balance hormones
  • Lower risks for obesity, gut issues, heart disease, osteoporosis, high blood pressure, Alzheimer’s and other dementias that run in your family
  • Maximize your longevity and quality of life.
