Genetic testing allows you effectively manage important aspects of your lifestyle including weight management and body composition, nutrient metabolism, eating habits, cardiometabolic health, food intolerances, and physical activity.
Unlike a short-term "diet", the information provided in your report, combined with the nutritional plan created by a licensed professional, will empower you to live a healthier and longer life by making DNA-based dietary choices on a daily basis.
Ageing has been defined as the time-dependent decline of functional capacity and stress resistance, associated with increased risk of morbidity and mortality.
At A4E Institute we believe one strategy to solve this problem is the identification of age-related change in body function or composition that could serve as a measure of “biological” age and predict the future onset of age-related diseases.
Furthermore, the study of biomarkers allow the assessment of the efficacy of forthcoming pharmacological and other interventions including, optimization of micronutrient intake and other dietary components or physical activity.
Discover your unique optimal zones based on your lab results, personal goals, age, gender, ethnicity and physical activity level.
Follow a healthcare provider nutrition and dietary supplementation plan based on your dietary restrictions and preferences.
Access to your personal science-based lifestyle changes recommendations tailored to your exercise frequency, sleep patterns and general wellness.
Benefit from our professional tracking system to help you see your progress over time and measure the effectiveness of your actions.
Learn what biomarkers say about your health and pinpoint previously undetected areas for improvement, allergies or genetic predispositions.
The first step to enjoy the benefits of our wellness program is to have a 1-on-1 consultation with Dr. Campos. During this visit he will gather important health and lifestyle information from you and perform a physical exam. Based on your needs, he will then recommend a program tailored specifically to you and have your blood drawn.
A few days after your blood tests are done, you will be notified your confidential results and recommendations are available and a follow up appointment will be scheduled at your convenience. During this visit, Dr. Campos will discuss the results with you and provide you detailed, scientifically-backed advice on how to improve your health and performance.
Your report includes comprehensive recommendation to empower you to make informed decisions about your health. Each recommendation is calculated to optimize your biomarker levels, avoid those foods you don't like or are allergic to and any other special needs such as improve sleep, increase energy, improve physical performance, etc.
At this moment, two to six pounds of microbes are living in and on you. This ecosystem of trillions of microbes is also known as your microbiome, which contains bacteria and other microorganisms that are both beneficial and detrimental to your health.
A balanced microbiome is important for good health. Our SmartGut test identifies specific pathogens associated with lifestyle choices and other conditions. With this information, we can help you reassess your diet and take necessary steps to rebalance your microbiome and improve your health under the guidance of an experienced medical practitioner.
In collaboration with uBiome, we offer SmartGut™ testing which detects 26 bacterial targets at a high level of accuracy to better understand:
Easy-to-use sample collection kit, which includes clear, simple instructions and everything you need, including a pre-paid return mailer.
SmartGut includes microorganisms that can only be detected by DNA sequencing.
Powered by the world’s largest microbiome database, SmartGut includes unique healthy (normal) microbiome ranges.
Requires only a very small sample of fecal matter (just enough to tint a cotton swab) that you can collect and return to us quickly and cleanly.
Ordered by a healthcare provider and processed in a CLIA-certified and CAP-accredited lab to give you the confidence and resources to take action.
The uBiome SmartGut™ test is not a diagnosis without the evaluation of your symptoms by a medical provider. We will meet with you to discuss all test results.
Once you agree to test, we will provide you with your SmartGut Collection Kit which includes everything you need to complete your sample in less than two minutes
Sampling is done in the privacy of your home. Then, simply place your sample in the pre-paid return mailer and drop it in the nearest mailbox.
Once we’ve processed your test, you will receive your test report via secure email. We will then schedule an appointment to go over the results.
Body composition analysis is an integral part of any wellness program. Bioimpedance Analyis is a scientific assessment of your fat weight, lean weight, basal metabolic rate, and hydration status. This information allows us to develop patient-specific caloric intake and exercise programs, monitor progress, and keep you motivated and inspired throughout our unique nutrition and lifestyle program.
Built for those who demand the best, accuracy is the driving force behind the Bioimpedance Analyzer. Backed by clinical research, test results are, on average, within 1.5 percentage points of body fat, with high correlation (r = 0.97) to hydrostatic testing. Unique to Biodynamics whole body bioimpedance analyzers are our populationspecific equations that compute body fat by body type, the key to achieving exceptionally high precision.
Only four minutes are required to prepare you, run the test, check target goals, and print accurate test results. With the Bioimpedance Analyzer, your time and effort spent in obtaining test results is minimized, leaving you with
quality time available for professional consultation.
Safety is a fundamental feature of the Bioimpedance Analyzer. Designed with patient safety in mind, the Bioimpedance Analyzer is engineered to meet the highest standard of safety. Powered by rechargeable batteries, the Bioimpedance Analyzer applies a test current of less than one milliampere, significantly below the human's sensory level. With the Bioimpedance Analyzer, safety held to the highest standards.
Persons Not Intended for Bioimpedance Testing without Provider Supervision:
It is important to note that there is no historical or clinical evidence that bioimpedance testing is unsafe for pregnant women or persons with preexisting heart conditions. However, an extra measure of caution is always warranted in these cases, and is recommended.
Bioimpedance testing will not damage a pacemaker. While there is no historical or clinical evidence that pacemakers are affected by bioimpedance testing, pacemaker manufacturers recommend that persons with pacemakers should avoid external electrical currents.
