Genomics (Nutrigenomics & Pharmacogenomics)
You are extremely unique and through DNA testing, we empower you to take control of your health. Nutrition is in your genes, and this personalized approach will guide you to optimal health.
“Genetics load the gun and environment pulls the trigger.” ~Unknown
The maintenance of health and the prevention and treatment of chronic diseases are influenced by naturally occurring nutrients in foods. In addition to supplying the nutrients for producing energy, a large number of dietary chemicals are bioactive – that is, they alter the regulation of biological processes and, either directly or indirectly, the expression of genetic information. Nutrients not only alter health but also disease initiation, progression, and severity. The study and application of gene-nutrient interactions are called nutritional genomics or Nutrigenomics.
Pharmacogenomics is the study of how genes affect a person’s response to drugs. This relatively new field combines pharmacology (the science of drugs) and genomics (the study of genes and their functions) to develop effective, safe medications and doses that will be tailored to a person’s genetic makeup. Nutrigenomics and Pharmacogenomics are both fundamental to the treatment of disease and maintenance of optimal health.

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT)
The term “bioidentical” refers to plant-derived molecules that are identical to the ones produced in our bodies and come from organic sources. Administered in their natural form (bio-identical estrogen, progesterone, or testosterone), in the correct doses (physiological and biomimetic), and via the right route of administration (transdermal), proper hormone restoration therapy (HRT) may help alleviate the symptoms of menopause, endometriosis, osteoporosis, heart disease, metabolic syndrome, andropause and most of the degenerative diseases. We use hormones that are compounded using only natural, FDA approved, plant-derived molecules that are identical to the ones found in our bodies. Synthetic hormone molecules are lab-engineered versions that are similar, yet not naturally occurring in our anatomy. There is always the risk of adverse effects that go along with introducing synthetic chemicals into your natural system. Conversely, by using bioidentical hormones, your body is better able to recognize and respond to treatment, and adverse effects are rare.
We recommend Rhythmic Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) using the Wiley Protocol.
Nutriceuticals are products, which other than nutrition are also used as medicine. A Nutriceuticals product may be defined as a substance, which has a physiological benefit or provides protection against chronic disease.
We partner only with suppliers whose practices emphasize quality, science, and responsibility. Better ingredients mean better potency, absorption, and digestibility – and ultimately better health.
Infrared saunas are an effective tool for natural healing and prevention. We have partnered with Sunlighten Sauna.
Sweating is good for you. It is the body’s safe and natural way to heal and stay healthy. Sunlighten far infrared sauna detoxification happens by heating the body directly, causing a rise in core temperature. This results in a deep, detoxifying sweat at the cellular level, where toxins reside.
“Detoxification is important because it strengthens the body’s immune system and helps the body’s biochemical processes function efficiently so that we are better able to digest the nutrients in our foods. Detoxification has also been shown to be helpful with colitis, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, auto-immune disease, immune deficiency states, autism, ADD and ADHD.” ~Dr. Rachel West
Sunlighten saunas have been designed with the utmost in comfort for greater relaxation and stress reduction.
Unlike traditional saunas which operate at extremely harsh temperatures, infrared is a gentle, soothing and therapeutic heat that promotes relaxation and improved sleep. Infrared sauna benefits include therapy that helps you relax while receiving an invigorating deep-tissue sweat, leaving you fully refreshed after each session.
In the mood to lose weight? Sunlighten can help. Our infrared saunas promote weight loss by detoxifying the body and burning calories while you relax in total comfort.
Studies have shown that the benefits of an infrared sauna session can burn upwards of 600 calories while you relax! As the body works to cool itself, there is a substantial increase in heart rate, cardiac output, and metabolic rate, causing the body to burn more calories.
Infrared sauna heat penetrates tissue, joints, and muscles to relieve anything from minor aches and pains to chronic pain conditions such as fibromyalgia. Pain management professionals incorporate infrared sauna heat therapy into treatment plans to decrease pain and muscle spasms and to speed up recovery time.
Only Sunlighten saunas are backed by clinical research that shows a reduction in systolic and diastolic blood pressure. Both are key factors in maintaining a healthy heart.
Sunlighten infrared saunas induce a deep sweat to make the heart pump faster, which in turn increases blood flow, lowers blood pressure and helps circulation. Scientific evidence shows the infrared sauna benefits using a Sunlighten infrared sauna a couple times a week lowers blood pressure.
Heating the muscles with infrared rays produces an increase in blood flow similar to that seen during exercise. Regular infrared sauna use – especially in the mid-infrared range – can significantly stimulate blood flow up to twice the normal rate.
As part of a sauna skin therapy program, Sunlighten infrared saunas help restore skin to a youthful appearance.
The near-infrared wavelengths are the most effective wavelengths for healing the epidermis and dermis layers of the skin. Near-infrared treatments stimulate collagen production to reduce wrinkles and improve overall skin tone. Far infrared wavelengths target deeper down, removing toxins that can have a negative impact on your skin.
Our advanced Solocarbon Full Spectrum infrared heating technology has the unique ability to heal wounds faster and minimize scarring through the use of near-infrared LEDs. No other sauna can offer these health benefits.
Scientific research has concluded that near infrared therapy greatly enhances the skin’s healing process by promoting faster cell regeneration and human tissue growth. Human cell growth increases to repair wounds and prevent infection.
Stay healthy with the natural preventive properties of Sunlighten’s exclusive near, mid, and far infrared heat therapy technology, which aid in cell health, muscle recovery and overall immunity defense.
Near-infrared light therapy stimulates the circulatory system and more fully oxygenates the body’s cells. Better blood circulation means more toxins flow from the cellular level to the skin’s surface to improve cell health, aid in muscle recovery and strengthen the immune system.

Pulse Wave Testing
Check the stiffness of your arteries – an overlooked risk factor for atherosclerosis (the leading cause of heart disease and stroke) that rivals high cholesterol.
Arterial stiffening is more than just plaque formation associated with occluded arteries.
Stiffening damages fragile capillaries that nourish our organs. This loss of youthful suppleness prevents our arteries from properly regulating blood flow and pressure.
In addition to causing high blood pressure, stiffening can lead to organ damage, which we recognize as heart attacks, strokes, cognitive decline, dementia, kidney failure, and a host of other disorders.
Combatting loss of arterial flexibility can be as simple as incorporating two nutrients into your daily regimen.
Studies show that vitamin D and vitamin K play an essential role in slowing—and even preventing—arterial stiffening.
