Early Disease Detection & Optimal Health Plan
We at Customized Relief are proud to announce the latest in diagnostic testing technology. This testing is being used to support early detection of those patients at risk for cardiovascular disease, cancer and neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, ALS or other forms of dementia. These chronic, life-threatening, and sometimes life-ending diseases don’t just occur immediately at the time of a diagnosis, but they develop through an inflammatory process that exists PRIOR to acquiring these conditions. As we age, our body loses its ability to fight off many of these diseases usually because of immune system dysregulation (called immunosenescence), and we become more susceptible to acquiring them. Our goal is to be proactive in response to these risks by formulating your personalized plan in an attempt to prevent disease development. This integrative medicine approach is much more proactive as compared to the traditional medicine approach which is much more reactive to the disease once the diagnosis has been made.

There are certain known genetic risk factors for cardiovascular disease that are easily measured through a simple blood test. We also have known genetic markers associated with an increased risk for Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. Lastly, all of us know about genetic cancer screening tests especially in screening for breast cancer and colon cancer. We often miss other genetics that are also associated with these risks including how hormones are appropriately metabolized and cleared in breast cancer, and how to help mitigate polyp formation in patients with colon cancer. Dr. Roberts is the only certified specialist in our area for FGA genetics testing and can use this new technology to support a personalized treatment plan for patients utilizing their personal genetic information to steer this plan.
This is state-of-the art testing that we now have available through our clinic. This testing has been shown through clinical studies to be a potential early warning signal for patients at risk for cardiovascular disease, neurodegenerative disease, and cancer. Unlike genetics which measure one’s tendency to develop a specific disease or problem, Prodrome testing gives us real time measurements using specific biomarkers to help us in trying to predict which individuals are at risk for development of these diseases. Dr. Roberts is the only certified provider in our area to use Prodrome testing interpretation and management. This testing is not guaranteed to be predictive but is helping us to move closer to a more proactive approach to disease prevention.
