DNA Analysis

This is the future of precision medicine. DNA analysis through a saliva specimen, commonly known as saliva DNA testing, is a non-invasive and straightforward method used to obtain genetic information. Saliva contains cells from the inner lining of the mouth, which naturally carry a person’s DNA. In DNA analysis, a small sample of saliva is collected using a specialized kit provided by the testing company. The individual simply spits into a tube, seals it, and sends it back for analysis.

Once received, the laboratory extracts the DNA from the saliva sample and analyzes it to provide various insights, such as your risk for thousands of known diseases; a personalized diet, vitamin, exercise, and lifestyle suggestions predicted to improve your health; optimized medication selection and dosing (pharmacogenomics); unique aspects about your body you may not have fully appreciated; traits in your DNA you don’t exhibit but which may affect your children; and your ancestry. (see additional information below for more details).

Most DNA companies only test certain portions of an individuals DNA. Our partner analyzes the full lengths of all 22,000 genes using technology called whole exome sequencing. Other commonly test which will not be named only look at the DNA in just a few places. Our partner then takes your DNA and uses its proprietary computer algorithms to cross-reference each of your DNA mutations to hundreds of thousands of scientific research papers to determine their impact on your health which is being CONSTANTLY UPDATED every two weeks. So you can log into the portal / account which will be provided to you to see any new information which has surfaced regarding your make-up.

Additional Information

DNA analysis can provide valuable insights into a person’s health risks by examining their genetic makeup for certain variations associated with various health conditions. Some of the health risks that DNA analysis can reveal include:

  1. Genetic Predispositions: DNA analysis can identify genetic variations known as single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) that are associated with an increased risk of developing certain diseases, such as cardiovascular diseases, cancer, diabetes, and Alzheimer’s disease.
  2. Hereditary Conditions: DNA analysis can detect mutations in specific genes that are responsible for hereditary conditions, such as cystic fibrosis, Huntington’s disease, and certain types of hereditary cancer syndromes.
  3. Carrier Status: DNA analysis can determine whether an individual carries genetic mutations associated with certain inherited conditions, even if they don’t exhibit symptoms themselves. This information is particularly relevant for family planning and reproductive decision-making.
  4. Pharmacogenetics: DNA analysis can reveal how an individual’s genetic makeup may influence their response to certain medications. This field, known as pharmacogenetics, helps healthcare providers personalize medication selection and dosage to optimize treatment efficacy and minimize adverse reactions.
  5. Nutritional and Lifestyle Recommendations: Some DNA tests provide insights into how an individual’s genetic profile may impact their response to diet, exercise, and other lifestyle factors. This information can guide personalized recommendations for optimizing health and wellness.

It’s important to note that while DNA analysis can identify genetic predispositions and potential health risks, it doesn’t provide a definitive prediction of future health outcomes. Environmental factors, lifestyle choices, and other non-genetic factors also play significant roles in determining overall health. Therefore, genetic information obtained from DNA analysis should be interpreted in conjunction with comprehensive medical evaluation and counseling by healthcare professionals.
