You’ve been eating healthy, working out, and taking your medication properly, however, things don’t seem to be improving. You still end up with that disease that your parents and grandparents had. Your medications don’t seem to be working the way you expected and have been switched from one drug to the next. You don’t seem to tolerate certain foods and your supplements don’t help the way you thought. What could be the problem? There are many possible factors but one possible factor has been gaining more attention in the past few years . . . GENETICS. Do genetics affect the way our body handles food? The answer is YES! Just like drugs that go through our bodies, food interacts in a similar way. They have to get into our body, they get delivered to where they need to go, they get broken down and digested, and finally, they get excreted. This field is relatively new compared to the others mentioned but there are tests available that look at how your body absorbs certain vitamins/minerals, how your body uses different fats, how your body responds to things like caffeine. Although new, the field of food and genetics has lots of established methods to grow quickly and the knowledge is going to keep getting greater and greater. The professionals at Holistic Pharmacy and Nutrition (HPN) are partnered with Rocky Mountain Analytics (RMA) to provide clients that may be interested in getting their nutrigenetics profile and personalized consultation to help optimize your health.
