DeerFields Clinic Partners With YouNique Genomics

Leading Age Management Clinic Now Offers Clients Genomic Testing to Optimize Their Long-Term Health

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - February 04, 2014) - DeerFields, Canada's leader in age management medicine, proudly announced today its partnership with Dr. Mansoor Mohammed, CEO of YouNique Genomics. The partnership allows DeerFields to offer its clients a comprehensive genomics analysis that reveals lifestyle-relevant personal health information. DeerFields is one of the first clinics in Canada to partner with YouNique to provide clients with information obtained through genomic testing.

"These cutting-edge genomic tests provide a truly individualized and functional assessment of each of our clients," said Dr. Randy Knipping, DeerFields' Medical Director and a certified Age Management Medicine trained physician. "Giving clients a better understanding of their genetic code helps us to provide them with actionable preventive healthcare solutions. For example, a person's genomic information can reveal how that person will respond to chemotherapy, provide insight into the foods they should eat, or if they have an impaired ability to metabolize toxins."

Genomic testing has become a cornerstone of a personalized approach to wellbeing. An individual's unique genomic makeup provides powerful information which can impact their specific medical and lifestyle decisions. By adding this critical information to DeerFields' existing protocols, which include exclusive biomarker testing, Dr. Knipping and his colleagues are able to prescribe tailored medical and lifestyle therapies consistent with achieving and maintaining optimal health for each of their clients.

At DeerFields, clients meet personally with Dr. Knipping to review a detailed report outlining their genomic test results. Each client is prescribed an action plan empowering them to take even more responsibility in mastering their health through informed, fact-based decisions. With this information in hand, clients can move forward confidently knowing their new rituals are sound and based on their unique genomic code.
