Modern Magic Behind the Machine
How is GENEXY different than other disease management or wellness tools?
1. We use over 40,000 clinical trials and update the system monthly with the most effective cutting edge research.
2. The assessment is more comprehensive and complete. The Smart Question technology drives to a deeper level of “why” symptoms are occurring, rather than just trying to label or diagnose a disease.
3. We incorporate cutting edge genomics and epigenetics to personalize your results. This helps shorten the testing and diagnostic process which leads to a superior evidence-based health improvement solution.
4. We use functional medicine to create a more well-rounded result. Prevention and treatment strategies are safer, more effective and less expensive for chronic illnesses.
Doctors often refer to their occupation as “practicing medicine” because sometimes diagnosis can be a guessing game. Each person is unique and not every human body expresses symptoms in the same way, nor do individuals realize that some issues are connected symptoms. A physician trying to diagnose and treat is trying to connect all the concerns of the patient, along with everything he has learned in his studies. However, because diagnosis can sometimes be trial-and-error, valuable time is lost, unnecessary tests are done, and even incorrect treatments can be prescribed along the way. All these factors may create undue costs and even additional symptoms.
That is why we use technology called Artificial Intelligence (AI) to more accurately utilize every piece of information possible. GENEXY incorporates every proven study on medicine with all of the cutting edge genomics and blood work information to create the exact percentage probability of any compound needed to positively impact your health.
For example, when you input assessment data, (age, gender, zip code for air and water quality, health status, nutrition, exercise, symptoms, blood work, genetics, and medications,) a physiological picture emerges. This picture begins to identify nutritional deficiencies, enzyme behavior changes, cellular deterioration possibilities, tissue damage, DNA damage, system weakness, and even organ function decline. Then, from the over 40,000 clinical trials, GENEXY finds evidence-based solutions that match up prioritized solutions based on the probability of success of each solution.
A plan for improvement can include recommendations for foods to eat, detoxification strategies, helpful nutritional supplements, mitigation of negative influences of genetic predispositions, and even information on interactions between prescription medications and natural medicine. With each recommendation, there are even links to scientific references of support from medical journals and scientific research trials.
Taking a health assessment is like having a dialog with your doctor to share your lifestyle, habits, history, and anything you might want to improve. The difference with GENEXY, is this “doctor” can incorporate your assessment answers with every scientific study to make targeted, personalized recommendations. The more information you provide, the more accurate and personalized the recommendations will be.
Plus, if you add blood work results and/or genomics information, the recommendations become laser focused on you by identifying any deficiencies or weaknesses that can be corrected, or any symptoms that can be reversed.
From the assessment, “smart questions” will be generated to dive deeper into your specific needs. These are derived from the proprietary artificial intelligence system. For example, if you have diabetes, a “smart question” will pop up to clarify what type of diabetes and get more information to specifically create the best treatment path. Answer as many of these “smart questions” as possible to create next level health.
Blood Work. Blood is the body’s primary distribution system and contains vital nutrients necessary for living. It is also the mechanism by which waste and toxins are filtered out of the body. Taking a snapshot of your blood can provide insight to many health functions and what nutrients might be below ideal.
The purpose of testing your blood is multi-fold. A laboratory can run many tests but because there are so many options, you can decide which area is of most concern and choose one or several blood panels from inside the GENEXY site, or upload data from your most recent doctor’s visit. Either method will refine your results and get closer to your ideal body functioning.
- Genomics. Genomics is the study of the genome. A genome is an organism’s complete set of DNA, including all of its genes. DNA, or deoxyribonucleic acid, is the hereditary material, such as eye color, hair color, height, etc. Each genome contains all of the information needed to build and maintain that organism. In humans, a copy of the entire genome, (more than 3 billion DNA base pairs,) is contained in every cell that has a nucleus.
Genomics is the field of biology that studies that structure, function, evolution, mapping, and editing of genomes. In contrast to genetics, which refers to the study of individual genes and their roles in inheritance, genomics looks at all the overall genes and how they influence the body. For example, researchers have found genomics that may help predict an individual’s response to certain drugs, susceptibility to environmental factors such as toxins, and risk of developing particular diseases several years in advance.
If you have 23&Me results, we can upload your information directly into the site and get extremely targeted answers. If you would like to get genomics testing done, we have several options available from trusted partners to provide an outstanding amount of helpful information to help you throughout your entire life.
Epigenetics: Epigenetics is the study of how the environment and an individual’s lifestyle can directly interact with the genome to influence change. These changes may be reflected at various stages throughout a person’s life and even in later generations.
For example, diet has been shown to modify epigenetic tags in significant ways. The field of nutriepigenomics (nutri= nutrients + epigenomics = genome changes) explores how food and epigenetics work together to influence health and wellbeing. Studies have found that certain compounds within the foods we eat could protect against cancer by adjusting tumor suppressor genes.
Ultimately, an epigenetic diet may guide people toward the optimal food regimen as scientific studies reveal the underlying mechanisms and impact that different foods have on the epigenome and health.
Types of Medicine:
Conventional Medicine, as defined by the National Institute for Health, is a system in which medical doctors and other healthcare professionals (such as nurses, pharmacists, and therapists) treat symptoms and diseases using drugs, radiation, or surgery. It is also called allopathic medicine, mainstream medicine, orthodox medicine, and Western medicine.
Holistic medicine is a form of medicine that considers the whole person -- body, mind, spirit, and emotions -- in the quest for optimal health and wellness. A holistic doctor may use all forms of health care, from conventional medication to alternative therapies, to treat a patient. For example, when a person suffering from migraine headaches visits a holistic doctor, instead of walking out solely with medications, the doctor will likely take a look at all the potential factors that may be causing the person’s headaches, such as other health problems, diet and sleep habits, stress and personal problems, and preferred spiritual practices. The treatment plan may involve drugs to relieve symptoms, but also lifestyle modifications to help prevent the headaches from recurring.
Integrative Medicine is an approach that looks at the whole person, puts the patient at the center and addresses the full range of physical, emotional, mental, social, spiritual and environmental influences that affect a person’s health. It emphasizes the therapeutic relationship between practitioner and patient, is informed by evidence, and makes use of all appropriate therapies.
Natural Medicine, as defined by WebMD, as a system that uses natural remedies to help the body heal itself. It embraces many therapies, including herbs, massage, acupuncture, exercise, and nutritional counseling. Naturopathy was brought to the United States from Germany in the 1800s, and some of its treatments are centuries old. Today, it combines traditional treatments with modern science. The goal of naturopathic medicine is to treat the whole person: mind, body, and spirit. It also aims to heal the root causes of an illness -- not just stop the symptoms.
- Functional Medicine is a biological system based approach that focuses on identifying and addressing the root cause of disease. Each symptom is understood to be just one of many contributing factors in an individual’s illness.
A diagnosis can be the result of more than one cause, but instead of focusing on what that diagnosis is, Functional Medicine focuses on WHY the symptoms are occurring. The precise manifestation of each cause depends on the individual’s genes, environment, and lifestyle, and only treatments that address the right cause will have lasting benefit beyond symptom suppression.
Functional Medicine was developed by a small group of thought leaders who realized the importance of an individualized approach to disease based on the evolving research in nutritional science, genomics, and epigenetics. These doctors found ways to apply easy treatments that modify molecular and cellular systems to reverse the drivers of disease.
They often brought dramatic results to patients who had previously received unsuccessful treatments. Part of this advance was finding new ways to look for unifying factors at the cellar levels that create organism-wide problems. This is believed to be the future of medicine.
