Our genes reveal why two people can eat the exact same foods and experience differences with weight loss. By analyzing over 80 genetic markers Pathway Fit® can tell you the diet that’s right for you.
A recent study showed that people who ate a genetically appropriate diet experienced 287% more weight loss over 12 months than a control group. Deciding between Mediterranean or low-carb diet? The research shows while they both might be good, only one works best for you!
If you’re trying to lose weight, gain muscle, or simply stay healthy – Pathway Fit® can help you find the most effective method of working out so you can see greater results faster.
With Pathway Fit® you’ll learn
• Your personalized genetic nutrition profile, including the perfect ratio of carbs, proteins, and fats for your body.
• How to make proactive decisions regarding diet, exercise, & lifestyle based on your DNA.
• Gain insight into your genetic predisposition for exercise so you know if you’ll get the most benefit from endurance or strength training.
Each person has two copies of the genetic materials, one copy inherited from each parent. Many genetic diseases are recessive, meaning the disease is caused by inheriting a mutation at the same DNA location from both parents. If a parent carries a mutation in one of the two copies of the DNA, he/she is a carrier of the genetic disease.
A carrier has a 50% chance of passing the same mutation to the child. If both parents are carriers, the child will have a 25% chance of inheriting both copies of the mutation, thus leading to the development of the genetic disease. Some inherited diseases are more common in certain ethnic groups and in people with a family history of genetic disorders.
BreastTrue® High Risk Panel is a next-generation sequencing test that detects mutations in eight high-risk breast cancer susceptibility genes, including BRCA1, BRCA2 and PALB2. In addition, the test includes deletion/duplication analysis of the BRCA1/2 genes by MLPA.
Recent studies of breast cancer survivors have shown that approximately 70 percent of the mutations identified were BRCA1/2 mutations. Approximately 4 percent had germline mutations in other cancer-susceptibility genes, including high-risk genes. These additional high-risk genes include CDH1, CHEK2, PALB2, PTEN, STK11, and TP53. Pathway Genomics’ BreastTrue® High Risk Panel analyzes all of these genes.
ColoTrue® is a 13-gene hereditary cancer panel for individuals and families with features suggestive of hereditary colorectal cancer. This panel includes full sequencing analysis of 13 genes. This test also offers site-specific analysis of the MDM2–SNP309 allele. A pathogenic variant in any of these genes warrants consideration of increased colorectal cancer surveillance.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), heart disease is the leading cause of death in the U.S. for both men and women. Many factors contribute to the risk of developing heart disease, including personal genetics and family history, nutrition and exercise, hypertension, high blood pressure and cholesterol levels. In addition, an individual’s unique genetic makeup can influence how he/she will respond to medications used to treat heart conditions.
Many factors affect an individual’s overall health and wellness, including nutrition, exercise, and body weight as well as predispositions to a number of health conditions. However, women face additional health circumstances and challenges such as pregnancy, menopause and other gynecological conditions. In order for a woman to achieve optimal health and wellness, it is important for her to understand how her unique genetic profile may be affecting how her body utilizes energy and nutrients, as well as how it responds to certain foods, diets, and exercise regiments. A woman’s genetic makeup can also provide with insights into common health conditions that she may predisposed to, as well as other information that may be helpful during a woman’s lifetime.
The Flowers group has been a life saver! They have helped me over come 7 years of illness in almost 4 months! So thankful for all of their knowledge and the compassion they have for their patients.
After years (decades) of thinking I was healthy (read: macho American male), and frustration of bad hormone levels, I became a patient of Dr. Flowers. In my fourth month of treatment, my body chemistry is within normal ranges, I have lost over 30 lbs., I have noticeably more energy, and am motivated to exercise every day. I am excited to see what I can be after year under Dr. Flowers care.
I’ve been seeing Dr. Flowers for about 9 months and I love the personal attention I get from him and the office staff! I am never rushed out nor have I ever had the “next” feeling you get with so many traditional Doctors’ offices these days. I love the more natural whole body approach to healing and would recommend him to anyone!
Dr Flowers and His nurse, Misty, are an amazing team. They are thorough, responsive and do an exceptional job of educating you so that you are motivated to be an active participant in your Plan of care. This is the first time my hormones have been balanced since before my total hysterectomy in 2004. I've suffered with severe migraine headaches since age 9 and have tried everything from medicines to acupuncture. After 4 months of HRT and herbal therapies with Dr Flowers my headaches are few and far between a 90% improvement. I'm still on the journey but there is not doubt that my quality of life has improved.
Love the welcoming atmosphere created by the staff and Dr. Flowers.
They gave me hope that I would be overcoming my issues and feeling better soon.
I love the individual attention I received from Dr. Flowers and the time he allotted for my visit.
There is a lot of one on one time with both Doctor and Nurses and I feel that my concerns and comments are heard.
liked the personal attention given by Misty and Dr. Flowers. I appreciated the hour block of time where I could sit down and really go over all the lab results and treatment plan. Never felt rushed. Always feel like
