Personalized DNA Medicine

Everyone is born with certain epigenetic tags passed down to us from our parents. Expression of genes can be affected by various factors including lifestyle, nutrition, environment, stress and possible DNA defects. At Silva MD, we have access to easy and affordable DNA testing using saliva. We can check for possible DNA defects and have a personalized plan to help prevent illness so that you can live your optimal life.

Schedule a consultation to review your DNA results and discover which supplements and behaviors will help improve the quality of your life the best. We also offer urine neurotransmitter testing which can help assess which neurotransmitters are not in balance and may cause mood changes. This testing may help to reduce your need for certain antidepressant therapies. It is not recommended to stop or reduce your antidepressant or antianxiety medicine without the advice of your doctor.

DNA Nutrigenomic Testing

Nutrigenomics is the scientific study of individualized genetics and nutrition. Nutrigenomic testing identifies a patient’s genetic mutations and specific cell vulnerabilities and the results help to determine which supplements or lifestyle changes will be needed for optimal health and well-being. The testing can determine if your DNA defects will make you prone to certain diseases like depression, anxiety, migraines, insomnia, gastrointestinal issues, etc and then recommend specific supplements and nutrition changes to help with increasing quality of life. Some patients with anxiety or depression are offered many different types of antianxiety and antidepressants without relief. With genetic testing you can determine which medications would be most beneficial and more likely to help with lower chance of side effects. Contact our office for consultation so we can help you get the DNA testing you need to help prevent or reduce your susceptibility to certain diseases or illness. DNA testing is also available to see which prescription medications will be more helpful and which may be harmful.
