Empowering You to Make Changes You Want Today

Toolbox Genomics educates and empowers individuals to build their healthiest lives by helping them understand how food and lifestyle can interact with their DNA and by providing immediate actionable recommendations to optimize health.

How It Works

Genetics represent the potential foundation of your health. However, your genetics alone do not determine everything about you. How you and your environment interact with your genes will determine whether or not your genes are being expressed (e.g. your muscle tone or developing heart disease).

Our Methodology

Search: Our team of healthcare professionals searches through thousands of peer-reviewed studies looking for genes and biochemical studies that are associated with preventable conditions, e.g. conditions you may be able to impact with diet and lifestyle changes.

Investigate: We analyze the studies, looking at the interventions (i.e. diet and lifestyle changes), the ease of the intervention, and the impact on the condition studied. We also rank the quality of the studies based on FDA research guidelines.

Associate: We examine how strong the association is between the various genes and health conditions. We also look at the connections between health conditions and foods, supplements, or lifestyle interventions. If the association is strong enough to inform diet or lifestyle recommendations, we include these genes and conditions.

Consult: We review the results of our findings with our broader team of FDA and genetic and nutrition consultants.

Add: We add SNPs and interventions to our Health Action Report™ database once they have been vetted by our team of providers.

We believe good health lies at the intersection of your genes, your environment, your nutrition and your lifestyle.
