Genetic Testing Q & A

What is nutrigenomics?

Nutrigenomics is a field of science that studies the complex relationship between genetics, nutrition, and health. Though the presence of a specific gene or genetic mutation influences your health, genes alone don’t determine your destiny because nutrients can change genetic activity.

This concept also works in reverse: Your genes affect how your body absorbs and uses the nutrients you consume. Each person has unique genetic variants that affect what their body needs to stay healthy. As a result, two people can follow the same diet and take the same supplements, but they’ll each respond differently. That’s where nutrigenomic genetic testing makes the difference.

What is nutrigenomic genetic testing?

Nutrigenomic genetic testing evaluates your DNA, looking for mutations that affect the way your body metabolizes nutrients. The advanced nutrigenomic test used by the team at Woodlands Wellness and Cosmetic Center evaluates up to 120 genes, providing information about your genetic mutations and the nutrition you need to overcome genetic weaknesses.

Armed with this information, your doctor at Woodlands makes specific recommendations for meal planning and dietary supplements, ensuring your body has the nutrients it needs to produce energy, fight inflammation, and maintain your health.

When should I consider nutrigenomic genetic testing?

Nutrigenomic genetic testing has the potential to help everyone live their healthiest life. It gives you the opportunity to prevent health problems by getting the precise nutrition your body needs. Additionally, the personalized changes targeted through genetic testing can improve symptoms associated with many chronic diseases.

If you currently take supplements, chances are you’re spending money on supplements you don’t need or you’re using the wrong dose. More than 75% of all patients have genetic variations that affect their metabolism.

What should I expect during genetic testing?

Genetic testing is a quick, simple, and painless procedure. Your provider at Woodlands Wellness and Cosmetic Center only needs to swab the inside of your cheek with a soft, bristled pad. The tissue from your cheek provides an adequate amount of DNA to run a complete genetic panel.

It takes about 7-10 business days to get your results, then your doctor at Woodlands explains all your results and talks with you about your optimal nutritional plan.

I've been seen Dr Sakina Davis for about 15 years now, she is very professional and spends enough time with you to treat the 'whole you', everything is connected and balancing hormones helps to treat and prevent many conditions. Her experience with bio-identical hormones proved invaluable for that particular stage of my life when I needed it the most. She is always up to date with new treatments coming up and this cutting edge medicine she practices has helped, also, with my back pain issues, allowing me to avoid a fusion surgery and still be able to function. Her staff is super efficient, nice to deal with and first class. AAA+

This has been one of the most rewarding experiences I have ever had in a medical setting. The doctors and staff are the most professional, personable, and talented providers I have met. The results are phenomenal and went way beyond my expectations. I can honestly say that the value of the services have been fantastic and I would do it all over again...but I do not need to because it was done right the first time. :). I highly recommend Woodlands Wellness & Cosmetic Center!
