Wellness Psychiatry offers personalized medicine through Genomind's genetic testing.The Genecept Assay looks at an individual's genotype in order to allow the provider to select medication specific to the patient. This test is very helpful for those who have struggled to find therapeutic relief with medications or have suffered side effects from medications. It is also a good tool for a patient who has never tried medication, in hopes of finding the best medication the first time. For more information on Genomind please look at their website or call the office.
"Mindful DNA™ is a genetic test used by clinicians that helps guide lifestyle, diet and/or nutritional supplement decisions to improve the overall health and wellbeing of patients. It was created based on Genomind’s expertise in brain health and belief in the importance of the mind-body connection. The results report provides personalized, actionable information that helps patients adjust their lifestyle, habits and activities in order to improve their quality of life. The test analyzes 32 genes in six key areas, or domains, of health: Cognition & Mental Acuity, Cardiometabolic, GI & Immune, Stress & Emotional Wellbeing, Inflammation, and Sleep. For each at-risk gene result, the test report specifies holistic health steps patients can take in collaboration with their healthcare provider to achieve better health." (Genomind)
