To be informed is to be healthy
Your genes can give you clues about your risk of developing a disease and, if it turns out that you are at increased risk for it, there are steps you can take to stay healthy.
Maintaining good health doesn't happen by chance. It takes work, smart lifestyle choices and the occasional checkup and test. Your genes can tell you if there is something else you should do to improve your health or stay healthy, among other things:
Early action to prevent the onset of disease.
Earlier or more frequent check-ups for a particular condition or disease
1 in 6 healthy adults is at increased risk for a serious health condition due to their genetics—and probably doesn't know it.
When it comes to your health, one size does not fit all.
77% of people say they would be likely to take a test if it would help them develop a personalized health plan.1 There is nothing more personal than your genes.
Invest in your health
From green juice to home workout equipment, you’re already prioritizing things that support your health.
But did you know that genetic testing can help you make the most of those investments by helping you decide where you may need to focus your health habits?
Genetic testing can accurately tell you whether you might benefit from:
Change lifestyle, diet or exercise routine.
See a specialist or add a new health care professional to your care team.
Starting or stopping certain treatments, medications or supplements.
Increase medical check-ups in order to be able to act in time, when treatment is most effective.

How much does genetic testing cost?
You have a lot on your mind, and the last thing you need to worry about is another medical expense.But think of it this way to give balance to what it means to invest effectively in healthcare.
1. You typically spend an average of 2000 to 8000 dollars a year (sometimes more) on exploring alternatives to solve your symptoms in the hope of feeling well and maintaining a better quality of life in the long term, right? However, you realize that all that emotional and financial effort end up in a passing wellness between trial and error, and still you don't feel any health condition improvement right?
2. On the contrary, your DNA profile does not change throughout your life and you simply invest on a one-time and lifetime solution for genetic testing, which opens the door to the possibility to achieve wellness and maintain a proactive quality of life in the long term.
3. In conclusion you'll finally take control of your health with evidence-based scientific information and precision recommendations based on your genetics. You will experience feeling better about your actual health problems and discover potential health issues that you are not aware of yet to be proactive about them.
4. On the other hand, it is possible that your health insurance may cover the costs of your genetic test and we invite you to contact your health care provider to explore if any of our genetic tests are covered.
