DNA/genetic testing - Casa Bienestar Salud Integral

DNA/genetic testing is currently gaining importance as an integral part of modern science and medicine. Predictive genetic testing enables one to identify inherited mutations that may put one at a higher risk for Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, cancer, etc. Testing also addresses issues with methylation, food/drug sensitivities, obesity, and other metabolic problems. Recent research is using DNA testing results to help identify optimal diets and skincare.

Process: The cost for DNA/Genetic testing is $330. This includes the test kit, which will address all of the items noted in the above paragraph, mailing to 24genetics in Spain where the analysis is done, and then a Consult visit with Dr. Ramirez to review the results and receive any recommendations.

Results are available approximately 8 weeks after the test is done here in Cuenca. If there are any treatment recommendations based on the test results (which you receive at the consult meeting), those treatments, if you decide to do them would be an additional fee and would depend on the test results.

Dr. Cristian Ramirez MD has an MS in medical genetics specializing in molecular biology and research with certification in Autism Spectrum Disorders. Other certifications include Molecular Diagnostics and PCR polymerase used in treating chronic metabolic diseases such as diabetes. He is an author of several publications in international medical journals. He teaches Biology, Microbiology, and Parasitology as a Professor at the Universidad Católica de Cuenca.
