How long does it take?
Upon receipt of your order we will need you to complete the questionnaire (also available online) and to receive your genetic information for analysis. As your genes are with you for all of your life your results will be useful knowledge you can keep forever building upon the interpretation of the results as we learn more of value in the future. This is particularly helpful as new diet programs come along as you will be able to identify if they may be helpful or not and thus save you unnecessary time and trouble following a program that isn't suited for your genetic profile.
Is my information kept confidential?
All information is kept completely confidential. Any "actionable" genetic test results you may share are maintained in a password protected and secure manner and all appropriate legal disclosures and confidentiality documents are signed by all parties involved. At no time is any of the information shared with other individuals or organizations without your express written approval.
Are you selling supplements tailored to my results?
No, I don't sell supplements however I may make recommendations for you to include some selected nutrients and list foods that contain these nutrients as well as a few products that you may then choose to purchase for yourself. In general my approach is food based.
