A physiogenomics profile is a genetic profile panel that identifies specific genes that may put you at risk for certain brain health issues such as depression or bipolar disorder. It can also tell us how your genes may react to certain situations such as stress or the change in seasons. At our natural medicine clinic in Milwaukee, we may suggest physiogenomics as a part of our integrative medicine approach to your complete mental and physical health.
Research tells us that issues such as depression affect not just our mental health and daily life, but they also affect physical health; therefore, it just makes sense to identify your risk factors. A physiogenomics panel is the first step. When your profile is complete and has been analyzed by the integrative medicine team at our natural medicine clinic in Milwaukee, we can help create a personalized plan for your health to address potential issues before they start.
Most people have heard of Type A or Type B personalities, which is a way that people identify how individuals respond to stress. Physiogenomics takes this many steps further by mapping out a person’s unique genetic structure to help determine how he or she may respond to stress. Once we have this information, we can help you devise a comprehensive plan to prevent stress and teach you how to cope with it when it inevitably occurs.
Seasonal affective disorder (SAD) is depression that is related to the change in the seasons. Some people are seriously affected, but they may not even understand why they feel so sad and tired at the same time each year. Physiogenomics can shed some light on how you cope with things like seasonal changes so that our team can create a plan to help you feel your best all year.
