Learn About Your Genomic Health Profile with DNA Screening in Manhattan, New York, and Stamford, Connecticut
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. Understanding 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 New York Center for Integrative Medicine in New York, New York, we use cutting-edge software to analyze DNA to offer each patient a personalized treatment plan that factors in environmental risks and helps patients adjust their lifestyle and nutrition to influence genetic expression.
Epigenetics for Preventive Care
Robert Kachko, ND, LAc is certified in using a software program called Opus23, an AI-powered screening tool that can comb through your DNA and check for over 3,000 genetic variations linked to genetic disorders. These variations are passed down through generations, and when they occur within certain genes, they can affect how your body functions. Luckily, these genetic variations don’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.
Integrative Medicine Goes Beyond Treating Symptoms
Some patients may visit multiple doctors trying to find relief. At the New York Center for Integrative Medicine, we help you take a comprehensive look at the factors that may be impacting your long-term well-being. The more information we have about you, the easier it will be to fit the pieces together and form a treatment plan that can optimize your health and help you improve your quality of life.
In addition to DNA screening, our doctors may use microbiome analysis, WAVi brain scans, or ANS and SIBO testing to help connect the dots on the underlying cause of your symptoms. By taking a holistic approach to your treatment, we can prescribe therapies and lifestyle changes that can provide lasting relief.
