Nutrition Consulting

Have you ever heard the saying “The power of food”? At Genemedics Health Institute, we educate our patients about the incredible power of food and its place in our society. Studies have shown that food has drug-like effects on the human brain. Certain chemicals are released that can give people a temporary sense of euphoria and well-being. That’s right! Food can be a chemical addiction! As a matter of fact, food is so powerful that even the sight or smell of certain foods can trigger these chemicals. Researchers at the Brookhaven National Laboratory in New York described how the brains of normal, hungry people reacted the same way to seeing or smelling their favorite foods (i.e., chocolate, cheeseburgers, ice cream, and cinnamon buns) as the brains of cocaine addicts thinking about cocaine.

The good news is that eating healthy foods, exercise, and yoga release powerful hormones called endorphins and other “feel-good” chemicals that can overpower any sense of euphoria you get from certain unhealthy foods.

At Genemedics Health Institute, we design personalized nutrition plans based on the following factors:

  • Your resting basal metabolic rate. We use the most advanced equipment to determine this important measurement.
  • Baseline body composition (i.e., body fat, muscle mass and water weight)
  • Your food preferences
  • Your daily schedule
  • How much time you can devote to exercise
  • Your fitness and health goals

We use this information to create a customized nutrition plan full of foods you’ll enjoy eating and that will help you achieve your fitness goals. Once you’ve started your program, routine visits are encouraged to review your nutrition logs, health-risk assessments (i.e., blood work, blood pressure measurement, body composition), and reassess your metabolism and fitness level.

This level of patient support is almost unheard of at most nutrition clinics or preventive health companies—but it’s just the base level of service at Genemedics Health Institute. We pride ourselves on a 100% success rate with our patients. If you follow your exercise and nutrition goals, you will experience positive, lasting change in your quality of life and health.

You might be asking yourself, “What else is there”? It is very important to understand and control your environment in order to obtain and maintain a healthy lifestyle. “Giving in” to unhealthy foods or failing “to stay on your diet” does not happen because you are “weak minded” or “have no willpower.” It happens because your environment is controlling you and because you were not provided with the proper information you need to prevent yourself from “giving in.”
