Nutrigenetics is the study of how inherited variations in your DNA call single nucleotide polymorphisms (“SNPs”) effect your individual response to the food you eat and your environment. Our Genetic report provides a unique genetic blueprint that helps the individual understand genetic expression and susceptibility, and how to alter that expression with diet and lifestyle. Our goal in providing this report is to consider your unique gene-nutrient interactions and design an appropriate nutrition therapy plan based on your specific genotype that optimizes your health and management of existing conditions, as well as reducing the risk of disease.
Genetic testing allows your dietitian to provide a targeted nutrition plan with less guesswork, based on your genetic results. You will receive custom nutrition recommendations, lifestyle or behavior interventions, and greater insight into what supplements may benefit you or even be contraindicated.
The 3X4 Report was designed by renowned geneticist Dr. Yael Joffe who brings over 20 years of experience in nutrition, genetics, sound research, clinical practice and scientific integrity to the field. Tricia Sauer, RDN, CDN, LDN, IFNCP is a certified 3X4 nutrigenetic practitioner and selected this report based on it's validity and utilization of only the most well studied and reliable genetic variants. Tricia Sauer obtained her BS in Dietetics and Nutrition and Minor in Chemistry at the State University College at Buffalo in 2008 and has devoted her practice to the study of this precision method of individualized nutrition.
