Genetic Testing can be a big piece of the puzzle! However, this information does also require further analysis as the science is still relatively new. Also, just because you have a specific gene, doesn’t mean it’s “expressed” or “turned on.” Our naturopathic physician can use the information from this test to help you decide which pieces to take action on, and which to not.  

All you need is a 23andMe® or Ancestry® DNA Kit. If you’ve already done one, great! Once it’s completed, your raw DNA data can be very easily downloaded and then uploaded to your Pure Genomics Account for FREE.
