Genomics Information

 

A genome is an organism’s complete set of genetic instructions, and can be found in almost every cell in the body. The human genome is made up of 20,000 – 25,000 genes, containing over 3 billion base pairs of DNA.

Genomics identifies and analyses variations in the DNA called single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs). A SNP may have no effect at all or it can change the proteins created by a gene, making them more or less effective. Proteins run all systems in our body, and over time a small change can have a great impact on the organism.

Over 150 SNPs have been identified to have a direct impact on health. Identifying and analyzing genetic variations provides clinicians with more information than ever before, enabling personalized interventions that are specifically tailored to a patient’s unique biochemical needs.

DNA contains the genetic code, the blueprint for everything that happens in our bodies. Genes provide the instructions to make proteins, hormones, immunoglobulins, and enzymes. They transport nutrients and waste, provide the communication to keep systems in sync.

Every time a cell replicates itself to replace dying cells in an organ or tissue, or when a protein needs to be produced, portions of the chromosome need to expose the needed genetic information. Sometimes during this process malfunctions lead to errors or variations in the newly created proteins. Most of the time our own system detects and repairs DNA errors before they get translated into a protein, but at times they become a permanent part of the DNA, leading to alterations in a person’s biochemistry and metabolism, which over time can result in a certain chronic diseases, including cancer.

Genomic testing shines a light on a person’s genetic blueprint, providing the scientific data and analytical information needed to develop a precise, individualized approach to:

  • support the health of our natural defense system
  • intervene with predisposition to certain diseases
  • inform prescription and dosage of drugs
  • boost the healing process
  • maximize longevity and athletic performance
  • get healthy and stay healthy

Genetics refers to the traits or characteristics a person inherits from his or her parents. A common misunderstanding, before 2003 and the completion of The Human Genome Project, was that genes were considered fixed—health was anchored solely in the DNA inherited from your mother and father. The scientific finding that genes have the ability to adapt to environmental conditions, a characteristic referred to as genomic plasticity,  provided the foundation for studying of the interaction of nutrition and genes, especially with regard to the prevention or treatment of disease. This area of functional genomics is called Nutrigenomics and is gaining increased attention and importance within the medical care process.

The company we work with, Genoma International, does not sell any of your personal information to other companies, constantly scours the research to determine which genes have efficacious dietary and exercise interventions associated with them, and provides a robust interpretation packet, that is also analyzed further by Bob Seebohar, Sport Dietitian and the owner of eNRG Performance.

Contact Bob Seebohar if you have questions about this testing.

After purchase, you will be mailed a test kit which will include instructions and supplies for you take a few swabs of saliva from your mouth. You will then mail these samples in the provided envelope to the testing facility. The laboratory analysis takes 4 - 5 weeks. Once eNRG Performance receives your results, they will put them in an easy to understand package that includes nutrition implementation strategies based on your individual genomics report. This includes a one-hour consultation with your eNRG Performance Sport Dietitian to explain your results and build a nutrition plan to support your individual genomic profile.


Genomic Reports

 

Genomic research is complex, often including seemingly contradictory studies. Genomic analysis requires a profound understanding of how each gene works, and how to translate results into meaningful actionable steps. The team of genomic experts at Genoma International, who combine research and clinical experience, stay at the cutting edge of genomic research and continuously update the information provided in their reports. Once eNRG Performance receives these comprehensive reports, we provide further analysis and package the information with daily and training nutrition recommendations. Using the team approach of genomic researchers and sport dietitians is the most effective way of delivering your genomic information to you.

The extensive report provided by Genoma International and the additional report provided by eNRG Performance will include the following:

  • Color coded overview of all your results for easy identification of important areas to focus on first.
  • Description of the function of each gene measured in your genomics panel.
  • Detailed listing of each gene result by category.
  • Description of the potential impact of each gene SNP.
  • Specific action steps that may help mitigate the impact of the SNP, including specific daily nutrition recommendations.
  • Biomarkers to help assess the impact of the SNP and of your lifestyle and nutrition interventions.
  • Summary listing of nutrients/supplements recommended based on your individual SNP's with recommended doses.
