Learn about your Genomic Health Profile with DNA screening in Brooklyn, NY
Our health results from a combination of our genetics, our lifestyle, and our environment. Genomic (DNA) screening allows our clinical team to develop customized recommendations based on your unique needs. Having an understanding of your unique risks will allow you to take a proactive approach to your health and allow you to prevent the chronic diseases of aging you may be concerned about.
At the NY Center for Integrative Medicine in Brooklyn, NY, we use cutting-edge software to analyze DNA so we can offer each patient a personalized treatment plan that factors in environmental risks and helps patients to adjust their lifestyle and nutrition to influence genetic expression.
Epigenetics for preventive care
Robert Kachko ND, LAc is certified in the use of a software program called Opus23, an AI-powered screening tool that can comb through your DNA and check for over 3,000 genetic variations that are linked to genetic disorders. These variations are passed down through generations, and when they occur within certain genes, can affect the way your body functions. Luckily, the presence of these genetic variations doesn’t guarantee that the gene will be expressed. They may lay dormant for years until environmental factors impact them. With our analysis, you can better understand how to “Turn On” protective genes and “Turn Off” genes that may increase your risk of disease.
