DNA Testing

The Future of Health is in Your DNA!

Synergy Health has selected IntellxxDNA™ to provide genomic DNA testing to our patients.  We feel that they provide state-of-the-art genomic evaluation, by not only offering the most in-depth genomic intelligence, but also combining this with evidence based, physician interpreted reporting.  This allows us to provide data-driven, individualized integrative supplement and lifestyle recommendations which will optimize our patients health and assist us in developing personalized preventative strategies.

What is Clinical Genomic Testing?

You may have seen commercials for companies that provide DNA tests and health reports to the general public, often piggybacking on consumer interest in genealogy and ancestry. We appreciate that their marketing efforts have brought the concept of genomics and health into the public eye. However, these direct-to-consumer tests and reports are not medically comprehensive. In other words, they don’t tell the whole story.

IntellxxDNA™ provides the Synergy Health team with in-depth, evidence-based, science-focused genomic intelligence. When your results are ready, you will meet with your clinician to discuss the risks and benefits within your genomic profile, and review potential prevention or intervention strategies to help you achieve optimal health and wellness. The entire process supports an informed interpretation of test results and a better understanding of potential next steps.

What do IntellxxDNA™ reports show?

IntellxxDNA™ reports don’t make decisions for you. Instead, they provide unprecedented insight into your unique genetic make-up to assist your clinician in developing true, personalized care. How? Your DNA contains variants, or SNPs (single nucleotide polymorphisms), that may signal potential benefits and potential risks that lie within your DNA. Our reports examine the complex interplay between these variants and how they can affect your quality of life. We include evidence-based, well-researched potential intervention strategies – encompassing environment, lifestyle, nutrition, supplements and medications – that will serve as a basis of discussion between you and your clinician.

What are some common questions?

Genomics seems scary. Do I really want to know? And if I do know, what can I really do about it?

Your DNA is not your destiny. In fact, understanding your genomic profile empowers you to make intelligent health and wellness choices now that may impact your future quality of life. IntellxxDNA™ reports focus on the health and wellness of the whole person, rather than on isolated disease states. Your clinician will review your genomic profile as one of several factors of consideration when making clinical decisions to help you achieve optimal health.

You can’t change your DNA
but you can change how you respond to it.
Genomics can help Synergy Health recommend lifestyle,
diet, supplements and medications, that are tailored
just to you. Your family history doesn’t have to be
your destiny.

Let’s get started.

Why do I have to go through my clinician to receive IntellxxDNA™ testing and genomic reporting?

Unlike ancestry-based genomics, the field of medical genomics is complex, even for well-trained clinicians. IntellxxDNA™ provides clinicians with ongoing education to ensure that they have access to research-based, accurate information.

Does health insurance pay for IntellxxDNA™ tests or reports? Will genetic testing affect my health insurance?

IntellxxDNA™ is not direct-to-consumer and does not accept insurance at this time. You should know that the Genetics Information Nondiscrimination Act of 2008 (GINA) prohibits insurance companies and employers with >15 employees from acquiring results of genetic tests. Group health insurance companies cannot use genetic information to deny coverage, establish pre-existing condition clauses, or change premiums. They also cannot require genetic testing.

Should my genetic test results be included in my medical record?

Genetic information in medical records is subject to review by providers of life insurance, long-term care insurance and disability insurance. If your IntellxxDNA™ report uncovers a risk that may be important to include in your health record, discuss the pros and cons with your licensed health care professional. IntellxxDNA™ also provides a separate patient DNA dashboard that can be used to store your discussions of your genomics ― outside of your medical record.

Understanding the IntellxxDNA™ Refund Policy

We have a straightforward refund policy to protect the integrity of test kits, patient privacy and genomic reporting. It is important for every patient to be fully informed prior to making a final decision. IntellxxDNA™ saliva test kits and genomic reports are non-refundable.
In addition, IntellxxDNA™ saliva test kits cannot be re-sold or transferred to another person.

Why IntellxxDNA™ isn’t Direct-To-Consumer

IntellxxDNA™ genomic reports are clinical decision support tools. In order to make recommendations for interventions, your genomic
information must be utilized by your clinician in combination with a full medical history, and knowledge of your current medications,
supplements, nutrition and other factors.

Two Exciting Report Options Available!

Whether you pick the Medical Overview Report, the Cognitive Health Report, or both, the most unique feature of an IntellxxDNA™ report is that it provides Synergy Health with referenced potential modifications and strategies to address your genomics. Our IntellxxDNA™ reports allow for truly personalized medicine so that you know the recommendations your clinician makes are targeted for YOU! Learn more at www.IntellxxDNA.com.

Medical Overview Report

This report focuses on common health concerns, including heart disease, diabetes, osteoporosis, obesity and macular degeneration.
It also helps identify potential genomic health risks, such as the propensity to form blood clots, response to anesthesia and opioids.
The celiac and histamine panels can help quickly untangle many G.I. issues. Also included are the various genes involved in methylation, homocysteine, vitamin B12 and vitamin D metabolism. There are 20 different panels and over 250 SNPs analyzed in the Comprehensive Medical Report.

Cognitive Health Report

This exciting report is designed to help understand the reversible/addressable causes of memory loss. There are two different versions  of this report and your clinician will choose the best option for your needs. Both reports address over 100 SNPs found to affect cognition, based on published medical literature along with referenced potential interventions. Some of these combinations of SNPs have been found to increase or decrease the risk of Alzheimer’s by 20% or more. Genes highlighted in this report, in addition to the well-known APOE ε4, relate to numerous pathways of inflammation, proteins that help clear amyloid from the brain, hormone related pathways, mitochondrial factors, copper, zinc, choline, detoxification pathways and more. Our report will help your clinician or nutritionist  target their recommendations specifically to you!
