Nutrigenomics Testing at Wellness Psychiatry

We at Wellness Psychiatry take great pride in our cutting-edge, all-encompassing service called Nutrigenomics Testing. This state-of-the-art method skillfully blends in-depth genetic research with specific dietary and lifestyle suggestions. Embark on this life-altering journey, and you’ll gain significant understanding of how your individual DNA interacts with your diet and health. Our goal is to equip you with the resources you need to use the incredible information contained in your DNA to make healthful lifestyle choices. By doing Nutrigenomics Testing, we want to decode the genetic secrets underlying your specific dietary requirements, setting you on the path to enhanced wellness and a more satisfying relationship with food.

Understanding Nutrigenomics

Understanding how your genes interact with the food you eat is the focus of nutritional genomics, a cutting-edge scientific discipline. You may adjust your diet to your unique genetic makeup by learning how your body reacts to specific nutrients based on your unique set of inherited traits.

The Impact on Your Diet

Insights into many areas of your nutrition and health can be gleaned from your genetic profile.

Nutrient Intolerances

Gluten and lactose intolerance are two examples of illnesses that can be revealed through nutrigenomics testing. You may now make educated decisions about how to improve your nutrition.

How Nutrigenomics Testing Works

A simple mouth swab is all that’s needed to conduct a nutrigenomics test. This specimen is subsequently sent on to a genetics lab for further study. In just a couple of weeks, you’ll have in-depth results that explain your unique nutritional genetics.

The Importance of Professional Nutrigenomics Testing

While home genetic testing kits are available, they are not a substitute for the advice of a medical expert. You can get the most out of your genetic testing by consulting with one of our psychiatric nurse practitioners who best understands this test. In addition, they can give you individual advice on how to put these ideas into practice.

Accuracy of Nutrigenomics Testing

The testing methods used in nutrigenomics are based on solid scientific foundations and are highly accurate. However, it’s important to keep in mind that genetic susceptibility is only one factor. The health of an individual is also affected by their lifestyle and the surrounding environment.

The Future of Nutrition: Personalization through Nutrigenomics

As people learn more about their own DNA, personalized nutrition will gradually replace blanket recommendations on what to eat. Better health outcomes will be the result of individualized dietary recommendations in the future, made possible by advances in nutritional genomics.

Nutrigenetics vs. Nutrigenomics: Understanding the Difference

Patients and doctors alike can reap many rewards from careful medication administration. This aids:


This subfield investigates how genetics affect how your body processes food. It looks at your genetic susceptibility with regards to diseases and ailments related to diet by analyzing genetic variants.


Conversely, nutrigenomics investigates the role that foods play in regulating gene expression. It provides a more in-depth look at how different parts of the diet affect health and disease through influencing DNA.

Frequently Asked Questions About Nutrigenomics Testing

We’re glad you stopped by our Nutrigenomics Testing Frequently Asked Questions page. Here, we address some of the most frequently asked issues regarding the emerging discipline of personalized nutrition.

What is Nutrigenomics?

The study of the relationship between your genes and the food you eat is known as nutritional genomics or nutrigenomics. Focusing on how your unique genetic makeup affects your body’s response to food and nutrients is the primary goal of this field of study.

How Does Nutrigenomics Impact My Diet?

Food intolerances, and recommended supplements for your genetic composition are just a couple of the areas that nutrigenomics can shed light on. You may now tailor your diet to your genetic makeup with the use of this data.

How Does Nutrigenomics Testing Work?

An oral swab is all that’s needed to get a DNA sample for nutrigenomics testing. The DNA from this sample will be analyzed in a dedicated facility. In a couple of weeks, you’ll get the whole report.

Are Nutrigenomics Test Results Accurate?

Sure, the science behind nutrigenomics testing is solid and reliable. Keep in mind that while genetics do play a role in your health, other factors such as your environment and way of life play far larger roles.

Can I Get Over-the-Counter Nutrigenomics Tests?

It is recommended to consult with a skilled professional, such as a licensed dietitian who specializes in nutrigenomics, even though some companies offer direct-to-consumer genetic tests. They can offer tailored advice and interpretation of your results.

Is Nutrigenomics the Future of Nutrition?

At the vanguard of personalized nutrition, nutrigenomics is set to supplant traditional, one-size-fits-all dietary recommendations. As people learn more about their DNA, personalized nutrition will become the standard approach to eating well.

Why Choose Nutrigenomics Testing at Wellness Psychiatry?

We have over a decade of experience in genetic counselling and offer Nutrigenomics Testing at Wellness Psychiatry. As a reliable resource for genetic testing and health maintenance advice, we offer customized direction and precise interpretation of results.

How Often Do I Need Nutrigenomics Testing?

The genetic panel used in the Nutrigenomics test is permanent. Because your genetic makeup does not change over time, you need to take this test once. Additional testing may become available, however, when novel genes and their associations with nutrients are uncovered.

what our clients say

I was extremely apprehensive on my first visit because I was in a very bad mental state. Amanda was very thorough, very friendly, and made me feel very comfortable from the very beginning. As I recovered I looked forward to our visits but in the end we mutually decided that it was time for me to leave the nest and fly away. If I ever need her I can always call on her. There was something about the layout of the office, the furnishings, and the calming energy that always put me at ease. My first encounter with psychiatric counseling was definitely a positive experience and something that I'll cherish.
This practice has not only helped my mental health, but I have been treated in a way that is caring and thoughtful. I feel like I'm more than just the 10:30 client - there's a vested interest in my well being. Amanda Farrell is who I've been working with for a few years now and I highly recommend her! I also feel confident that anyone in the practice is trustworthy and reliable. Again, highly recommended!
Amanda is an absolute RARE find. My husband even agreed that she does….actually….. care about me and my health. I’m 50 and this might be the first time in my life that I’ve felt that my doctor/therapist really wants me to be happy and successful in life. Starting therapy when I was in my 20’s so there is a long list of docs/therapist that I’ve seen over the years. Highly recommend — especially if you’ve started feeling like you’re just another patient in the queue.
This is the best psychiatry practice I have been to. Everyone I have worked with has been empathetic and understanding. The office feels very warm and I feel very taken care of. I always know when I call or email, Riley will be super responsive to my needs. Highly recommend!
Amanda has been incredibly helpful. I'm much happier and more productive.
Wellness Psychiatry goes above and beyond. Everyone from admin to clinical staff. The team fosters warmth and are very attentive to your needs. Addressing mental health has felt overwhelming but this team makes it me feel comfortable and supported. Thanks!
