Pro Motion Clinic is always working to bring you the latest in the health care field. Our newest technology that we are bringing to you is, Nutrigenomix!
“Nutrigenomics is a new scientific discipline that uses modern genomics technology to study the relationship between genes, nutrition and health. It has long been apparent that some people respond differently from others to certain foods. For example, individuals with lactose intolerance experience gastrointestinal discomfort after consuming certain dairy products, while other individuals can consume dairy with no problems. Nutrigenomics allows us to understand how our genes affect the way we respond to the foods, beverages and supplements we consume.”
You will meet with our Registered Dietitian, Tina Busetto for your initial appointment. It is in this appointment that you will go over your general health history and what your health and wellness goals are, a saliva test will be performed in this initial appointment. The sample is then sent away to the Nutrigenomix Lab and tested for 45 different genetic markers.
With these personalized results you will be able to tell how your genes respond to the food and beverages you consume. The test consist of a panel of 45 genetic markers related to several important aspects of your lifestyle including weight management and body composition, nutrient metabolism, eating habits, cardiometabolic health, food intolerances, and physical activity. Tina will go over these results with you and develop a plan to get you to the best version of yourself.
