Genomic medicine also known as personalized medicine, uses the body’s unique genetic makeup to help customize medical care. DNA is inherited from our parents, and determines how our body functions. Some genes may not be expressing themselves at an optimal level, which is where this medicine comes in to play. By review of specific tests, the doctor may request this information to help assist in the treatment of the patient. The treatment plan will tackle any deficiencies or excesses that can be created by specific gene expressions, this will help to promote balance within the patient’s body.
This method is used in combination with BioMeridian testing and Autonomic Response Testing (ART) to assess inflammation in the patients’ body, and monitor progress. Treatment often consists of Chinese herbs and supplements, diet and lifestyle changes.
