The Advanced Health and Wellness Center offers on-site tests and evaluations covering a range of health and fitness concerns. There are five primary areas of focus. Anti-aging genetic testing uses the study of hereditary factors to create a plan for living a longer, healthier life. Genetic testing for athletes provides patients with a comprehensive evaluation covering how to improve athletic performance and recovery.
Genetic testing is also available specifically for weight loss and obesity, and offers insight on factors affecting patient's specific metabolism and predisposition for obesity to aid in safe and effective weight management. Labs and genetic testing are available to evaluate risk of heart attack, high cholesterol, and high blood pressure, and diabetes. Finally, specific genomic evaluations are offered to determine which medications are safest and most effective given a patient's individual genetic makeup.
Dr. Neil Paulvin, the program head, is board certified in integrative and holistic medicine, and fellowship trained in anti-aging medicine. As one of the subsidies of Advanced Orthopedics and Sports Medicine Institute, the Advanced Health and Wellness Center genomic program clients are provided with the opportunity to receive comprehensive evaluations which cover both an analysis of genetic predispositions and options for treatments.
"Genomics gives us this incredible opportunity to understand a patient more completely--and to empower patients to make health and lifestyle decisions based on their genetic makeup. It's a privilege to be able to access this level of knowledge and to use it to improve or even save lives," said Paulvin.
In addition to genomics, the Wellness Center offers holistic and alternative medicine, nutrition specialists, massage therapy among other services.
