Genetic and Cellular Medicine
Imagine… Medicine unique to only you!
Have you ever heard of DNA or MTHFR? Possibly you’ve heard of the popular test 23andME that can tell you your entire genetic makeup? Both of these things are related to genomic medicine. Genomic medicine is the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disease and disorders of the mind and body, by using approaches that are informed with knowledge of your specific genetic code.
What this means for you, the patient
The medical model is based on that everyone is the same. But we know this is not true, everyone has uniqueness to them and this is why some people are anxious, some people are not, some people have no energy issues, and some do. This is where genomics comes in, we can look at how your body responds to outside factors, and help your body optimize its function and work best for you.
Each person interacts with his or her environment, the food we eat, the toxins we are exposed to, and the way we detox in a unique way because of our genetic makeup. Every human has a unique genetic code made up of DNA; this DNA tells our cells, and therefore our bodies how to react to stress, metabolize foods, detox chemicals, and even what diseases we are predisposed to getting.
Genetics can predispose you to have a nutrient deficit that is so great, it disrupts your bodies normal processing and function. Genomic variants are so powerful that when they are malfunctioning or not addressed, they can potentially cause issues with fertility, and research shows that they are even implicated in recurrent pregnancy loss.
Genomics can help with:
- Cellular Repair
- Chronic Fatigue
- Fertility, infertility, and recurrent pregnancy loss
- Gastrointestinal Diseases and Complaints
- Memory Issues
- Migraine Headaches
- Nervous System and Brain Function
- Weight loss
- And many other diseases not mentioned
By using cutting edge medical tests, Dr. Miller is able to look at specific genes and cellular functions. This means that she is able to discover what diseases you may be pre-disposed to, and what nutritional deficiencies your cells are experiencing. She then can tailor a specific treatment plan for each individual, that is designed to optimize your health, get you on the path to feeling healthy again, and help prevent future disease.
Genomic medicine is gaining momentum across the entire medical community, from risk assessment in healthy individuals to genome-guided treatment in patients with complex diseases. It is one of the most advanced medical techniques being used today.
