Nutrigenomics and Medical Genealogy

Dr. Michael believes that knowing our “inside” and “outside” stories can help shape our current and future health journey. 
 
“Inside” stories refer to the stories and secrets stored within our DNA. Through in-depth genomic testing and DNA analysis, we can gain insights into why our health is what it is and how we can optimize it, customized to our unique genome.
 
“Outside” stories are those stories within our personal and family experiences that can influence our health. These are stories from our ancestors and family members, passed down through generations. Stories of wealth and poverty, health and sickness, adventure and growth, and more, when internalized, can increase our resilience and clarify our life’s path and journey, especially in reg to our health.
 
Dr. Michael is eager to help individuals better understand the “inside” and “outside” stories in their lives and offers two main services in doing so.

Unlocking the stories in your genome

With the raw genetic data from your test, Dr. Michael will analyze it further, looking specifically to understand your alleles and genes for enzymes and proteins that directly influence health in many ways.
