1. Why can’t I ever seem to be successful with my New Year’s Resolutions?
a. Most people’s resolutions focus only on behavior. Making effective long-term changes requires a deeper look at an individual’s overall health.
2. What is personalized medicine?
a. Personalized medicine is a new approach to health care that promotes wellness by understanding a patient’s unique characteristics and creating innovative, custom health solutions. We recommend diet, exercise, supplementation and lifestyle changes and avoid using medication whenever possible.
3. What’s the difference between personalized medicine and traditional medicine?
a. Personalized medicine doesn’t simply treat disease, it seeks to prevent illness by understanding the effects an individual’s genes and lifestyle have on health. Instead of fixating on “what” the disease is, we ask “why” it is manifesting. However, it is not intended to take the place of your primary care doctor.
