Genetic Testing Magnolia TX

We all possess certain genes that may be good or may be bad, but having poor genes doesn’t mean your predestined for that particular disorder. Genes are turned on or off by their environment and what we expose our genes to. What we consume nutritionally, how move, stress levels, and sleep regulation all help regulate your genes.

Genetic testing has allowed us to take a deeper look into the human body and determine your overall predispositions for certain disease states. This allows us to take the proper precautions on how best to up-regulate or down-regulate certain genes within the body.

Why Should You Get Genetic Testing?

  • Do you possess certain genes that predispose us for certain chronic disease states, such as diabetes, stroke, cardiovascular disease, cancer, and even autoimmune disorders?
  • Do you have certain genes you could pass down to your children?
  • Do you have symptoms or side effects that other practitioners are stating there is nothing wrong.

Immune/ Auto-Immune / Inflammatory

Inflammation plays a role in numerous disease states and health problems, including asthma, chronic arthritis, autoimmune conditions, diabetes, eczema, irritable bowel syndrome, obesity, and more.

Genetic testing for inflammation can be a valuable tool in both prevention and treatment of inflammatory issues through an understanding of a person’s genetic predisposition and nutrient utilization.

While vitamin D deficiency does not leave a patient with obvious symptoms, it has been linked to significant immune weakness and increased risk of cancer. It has also been linked to bone loss and an increased risk of cognitive decline and mood disorders. With so much on the line and no obvious symptoms to identify, why not take a vitamin D deficiency test?

The genetic marker, VDR Taq, is activated by vitamin D. VDR either activates or deactivates the production of protein by the cell. Vitamin D testing can inform whether or not your cells are receiving the proper instructions from your genes at the proper time.

Your immune system plays such an important role in fighting against viral, bacterial, and parasitic infections. Boosting your immune system through supplementation and vitamins can be an effective way to boost your immunity.

Wellness Panel

Genetic Testing Magnolia TX

This panel provides insight into specific genes that play a role in both b12 and folic acid methylation. Methylation involves adding a “methyl” or a “CH3” molecule to a substrate, which is involved in over 250 processes within the body.

What Major Processes are Affected by Poor Methylation?

  • Immune System
  • Neurotransmitter Production (e.g., Serotonin, Dopamine)
  • Cellular Inflammation
  • Energy Function

Who Does This Test Benefit?

  • Depressive Symptoms
  • Chronic Fatigue
  • Poor Immune System
  • Chronic Inflammation
  • Neurologic Symptoms


Neurological/Mood Panel

Billions of neurons exist in the brain. These cells share information with other nerve cells through electrical impulses, allowing for thought and communication throughout the body. It’s not uncommon for the body to run out of inhibitory neurotransmitters when one has overactive excitatory neurotransmitters.

When inhibitory and excitatory neurotransmitters are not working together and are imbalanced, moods like anger, agitation, anxiety, AND depression can occur. This imbalance can also affect how your nervous system is firin, which can lead to movement disorders such as ALS, Parkinson’s, and chronic neuropathies.

Who Does This Test Benefit?

  • Adult onset ADD/ADHD
  • Seizure Disorders
  • ALS
  • Parkinson’s Disorder
  • Anxiety/Depression
  • Bipolar
  • Alzheimer’s/Dementia
  • Neuralgias/Neuropathies


Chronic Pain Panel

Genetic Testing Magnolia TX

Chronic pain affects millions of people across the world and many who live with chronic pain may look healthy from the outside but, internally, are experiencing so much pain that they have a difficult time living a normal day-to-day life. Medications such as opiates only act as a bandaid for the pain and often lead to higher addiction rates and the need for stronger dosages.

Each person possesses different genetic pathways that can affect their level of pain and how their body handles certain stresses on the body, especially inflammation. Our chronic panel determines how your body detoxifies and handles overall inflammation, which can be damaging to the nervous system.

Who Does This Test Benefit?

  • Chronic Joint Pain/Arthritis
  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease (Crohn’s or Ulcerative Colitis)
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Chronic Headaches/Migraines
  • Unexplained nerve pain or muscular spasms


Poor Gut Health

The gut is unique in that it’s the only organ system that is autonomic and functions without oversight from the brain. Its primary purpose is to help breakdown food, absorb its nutrients for energy, and expel the remaining materials from the body.

A poor gut can lead to chronic inflammation, poor immune system, poor neurotransmitter production and even induce autoimmune conditions.

There is a major immunological presence around the gut itself and about 70-80% of the immune lies within the gut. Immune stabilization, and digestive process are dependent on the chemical processes occurring in and around the gut, aiding the cells and good bacteria that carry out the mechanisms can help overall health.

Who Does This Test Benefit?

  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome
  • History of GERD/Acid Reflux
  • Food Sensitivities/Allergies
  • Chronic Hives
  • Intermittent Intestinal Pain
