What Science does Wellness by Science™ utilize?
- The Wellness by Science™ Personal Genetic Service has been designed to provide customers with accurate, high-quality data in a format that is easy to understand. Each step in our workflow is carefully monitored and validated through quality control measures to ensure every customer’s data accurately reflects his or her genetic makeup. All samples are processed in labs that meet local regulations.
- Our methods:
- Wellness by Science™ uses genotyping technology to view genetic variants in the genome that are informative about an individual’s health.
- Unlike sequencing that analyzes all nucleotides in a gene to identify changes, genotyping detects specific known variants within the genome. Wellness by Science™ uses a custom Illumina GSA & GSA V2 chip that analyzes about 800,000 variants.
- What variants will I be testing?
- Wellness by Science™ will look at about 38 variants to create your initial Genomic-Based Plan.
- Variant coverage represents the proportion of disease-causing alleles in people with a given condition that would be detected by the test. For certain conditions in which a single variant accounts for all known cases of the disease, our coverage is greater than 99%. In other cases, there are many variants that can cause the disease, and some but not all of these on the assay.
What does the patient community do?
- This private, moderated online forum is a space where clients share experiences, recipes, and tips, and form relationships with others. The community is moderated to ensure safety and accuracy of shared information. You can leave the community at any time. Participation is completely your choice.
Are activities required?
- Yes, activities are required for success on Wellness by Science™. Through studies we have learned that it is necessary to activate muscles for the natural interaction of insulin. The activities can be performed anywhere. No gym or excessive physical activities are required.
May I join Wellness by Science™ even if I travel?
- Yes! Because our Genomic-Based Plan is accessed from anywhere, as long as you have internet access, you’ll have access to all of our resources and your dedicated representative.
