Today I’d like to talk to you about genetics in functional medicine. Specifically, the four great reasons you should be introducing genetics into your practice. Plus, what it can do for your practice and your patients.
Genetics tests are freely available and relatively inexpensive these days, but with the right test and training, they offer a wealth of information and insight into the possibilities of what your patient may be experiencing.
Are there inefficiencies in methylation, inflammation or detoxification causing that fatigue, chronic pain or other symptoms? Seeing these and other inefficiencies on a genetics panel can lead you to dig deeper. Most importantly, you’ll be able to have a conversation with your patient. A conversation that really resonates with them because you have the insight and ability to help them take the next step toward optimal wellness.
Chances are this is something that no one else has been able to do.
In my experience, this extremely personalized approach doesn’t just get amazing patient results. It also increases patient and cash flow for your practice. With these insights, we can keep patients in optimal wellness. That is very powerful!
