What is Health Forward?
Health Forward is comprehensive genetic testing that allows us to understand you from the inside out.
Have you ever tried a diet that just didn’t work for you? How about a skin care regimen that made you break out? Or maybe eating a certain something just doesn’t sit right with your tummy?
Have you ever asked why? Health Forward has the answer.
We are all aware that our bodies, though functionally similar, are individual intricate works of art. And despite our similarities one size does not fit all when it comes to healthcare.
Through nutritional, hormonal, functional, and genetic testing we can determine specifically how things like diet, skin products, and hormonal balance are currently affecting you!
How does Health Forward benefit me?
When we have an in depth look at how your body reacts to daily stressors, we are able to more clearly determine the best health care plan completely tailored to you! That means no more guessing about whether or not what you’re doing is actually healthy for you.
How is the Test Administered?
Most tests are done by venipuncture (blood draw) and take approx. 30 business days to receive your comprehensive results. Once received, your results will be reviewed with you in detail with physician Dr. Laura Beaty. You also be given a specific health care plan and recommendations for your health.
