Why Genetic Testing is About Much More Than Ancestry

If you've heard about genetic testing in the past decade, it's probably been through the marketing of ancestry companies. There's the allure of finding out where you came from (or uncovering family secrets!), and at-home kits provided by these companies have shown everyday people how easy it is to test their DNA.  

Unfortunately, due to the popularity and widespread marketing of ancestry tests, most people aren't aware of the other benefits genetic testing can provide. While ancestry testing simply tells you where your family came from, genetic testing for health and wellness can lead you to an array of actionable insights into optimizing you’re eating, exercise, lifestyle choices and more in order to achieve better health.  

There are many ways genetic testing can inform your health and wellness. Personalized care is one example. A lot of approaches to health and wellness these days focus on a one-size-fits-all approach, prescribing the same diet, exercise and lifestyle choices to everyone. But everyone is unique. Shouldn't healthcare be tailored to that unique individual? Genetic testing uncovers a person's genetic variants, which give us insight into how that person’s cells and systems function, show the impact of the types of food one eats and the environment one lives in, and more. Ready to start your personalized health journey?
