Personalized healthcare is using the latest scientific and clinical research, tools and technologies to identify the unique genetic and epigenetic protective factors and risk factors of each individual. Understanding this allows us to provide evidence-based modifications of these factors to prevent and reverse disease states. Over the last 2 decades, technology and health research has developed to a point where truly individual recommendations are now possible.
Significant changes in the landscape of both health research and clinical practice are being driven by consumer demand for more personalized management, and the technological advancements allowing the application of genetic-based integrative lifestyle medicine.
In the coming years, this level of management will be an expected standard of care delivered by clinicians and the major focus for human health research.
