This week’s podcast: “Transcriptomics―James Maskell Exposed Again!” features Helen Messier, PhD, MD, CCFP and medical director of Viome―a direct to consumer microbiome testing service. Dr. Messier was previously featured in our “Interpreting Your Genetics Summit” and is a passionate functional medicine doctor and geneticist.
As part of that summit, James did the Viome test to raise awareness about the value of these consumer-based testing services.
The new era of direct-to-consumer testing is here, and tens of thousands of patients are ordering these microbiome tests and seeking out functional medicine practitioners to interpret their results. Is your practice ready for this?
For practitioners, this podcast serves as a learning module on interpreting these tests for your patients. For patients, this podcast will help you understand how Viome testing works and how you’ll benefit.
Tune in to watch James’ microbiome get exposed and learn:
- How the Viome consumer-based test works, what’s included and what to expect
- What the Viome test measures and reveals―including metabolism and the epigenetics of the microbiome
- How the test is interpreted, including what clues to look for in pinpointing causal factors
- What lifestyle recommendations look like based on James’ test results
