GENETIC TESTS AVAILABLE AT OUR CLINIC


At Nature's Intentions Naturopathic Clinic we offer the following genetic profiles:



CardioGenomicPlus®Profile

Evaluates genetic variations that modulate blood pressure regulation, lipid balance, nutrient metabolism, inflammation, and oxidative stress.

The test uncovers potential genetic susceptibility to:

  • Hypercholesteremia
  • Atherosclerosis
  • Obesity
  • Hypertension
  • Coronary Artery Disease
  • Myocardial Infarction
  • Thromboses
  • Endothelial Dysfunction
  • Stroke

DetoxiGenomic®Profile

Evaluates genetic variations associated with increased risk of impaired detoxification capacity especially when exposed to environmental toxins. It also identifies individuals potentially susceptible to adverse drug reactions.

The test uncovers potential genetic susceptibility to:

  • Adverse Drug Reactions
  • Numerous Cancers
  • Neurodegenerative Disorders
  • Mood Disorders
  • Fatigue Syndromes
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Multiple Chemical Sensitivity
  • Oxidative Stress

ImmunoGenomic™Profile

Evaluates genetic variations that modulate immune and inflammatory activity. The genetic variations can affect the levels and activity of the cytokines. The immune system has many different types of cells acting together to take care of unwanted infections and altered cells. Cytokines are the chemicals produced by these cells in order to communicate and orchestrate the attack. These variations can affect balance between cell (TH-1) and humoral (TH-2) immunity, reveal potential defects in immune system defense, and stimulate mechanisms leading to chronic, overactive inflammatory responses.

The test uncovers potential genetic susceptibility to:

  • Asthma
  • Autoimmune Disorders
  • Certain Cancers
  • Allergy
  • Infectious Diseases
  • Bone Inflammation
  • Arthritis
  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease
  • H. pylori (cause of ulcers)
  • Heart Disease
  • Osteopenia

NeuroGenomic™Profile

Evaluates genetic variations that modulate the various enzymatic processes of detoxification such as methylation, glutathione conjugation and oxidative protection.

The test uncovers potential genetic susceptibility to:

  • Neurodegenerative Disorders
  • Developmental Issues
  • Mood Disorders
  • Oxidative Stress
  • Detoxification Capacity

EstroGenomic™Profile

Evaluates genetic variations that modulate estrogen metabolism, coagulation, cardiovascular function, bone health, and inflammation. Identifies susceptibility to diseases and conditions such as breast cancer, osteoporosis, and heart disease.

The test uncovers potential genetic susceptibility to:

  • Breast cancer
  • Osteoporosis
  • Thrombosis
  • Strokes
  • Atherosclerosis
  • Heart Disease
