The FIYG Program uses scientifically-validated genomic testing for nutrigenomics and pharmacogenomics. Nutrigenomic testing determines individual variability in macronutrient and micronutrient balance, processing of lipids, carbohydrates, saturated fats as well as genetic predispositions to weight loss-regain, and response of blood pressure and lipids to exercise. These assessments guide environmental, nutritional, exercise and supplement facets of the individual program development. Pharmacogenomic testing is used to assess medication safety, and refine the pharmacological treatment. Our consultants will identify a genetic testing company most suitable to your patient population, and accredited in your state. We strongly believe that all genetic testing should be supervised by a licensed physician.
Metabolic and environmental toxicity assessments are integral components of the program, and determine the type, frequency and duration of detoxification protocols. Salivary hormone testing and expanded lipid analysis as well as sampling of several inflammatory markers are essential in determining the influences of the internal environment on cardiac and vascular disease and risk factors.
Our nutritional intervention is guided by the genomic and environmental assessments. A variety of diet types, such as Paleo, Mediterranean, gluten-free, leaky gut/anti-inflammatory, and elimination are personalized for each patient based on assessment carried out by our holistic nutritionist. The nutritional part of the program uses proprietary software to provide periodic assessments, ongoing communication and daily email patient support.
Our program guides patients to local resources such as gyms, yoga studios, cycling studios based on their genetic predispositions, environmental exposures, and nutritional assessments. Our consultants will identify the local resources that suit your patient population, or develop a group practice class on site.
Half of Americans take vitamins or mineral supplements regularly. Unsupervised intake of supplements is wasteful, expensive and may be harmful. Anti-inflammatory and energy-producing supplements, such as fish oils, coenzyme Q 10, magnesium, ribose and green tea extract has all shown benefits for patients with cardiovascular disease or risk factors. Nutraceutical plant-based protein preparations are valuable additions to the diet and exercise program for risk factor modification. Every patient in the FIYG program is supervised by a cardiologist and a nutritionist for supplement intake. Our supplement solution consists of foundational and condition-specific supplements, with selections guided by the genomic, environmental, nutritional and exercise facets of the program. We use high-quality, high-concentration supplements from the domestic companies with established track record of safety and accountability.
Case Studies from Our Patients
A middle-aged woman with chronic exertional dyspnea, depression, osteoarthritis, abnormal blood glucose, and multiple cardiac and pulmonary tests and physician visits.
