Many extended health insurance plans offer coverage for dietitian services. Please check with your insurance company to see what coverage is available to you. At this time, we do not direct bill extended health insurance plans but will provide a detailed receipt to submit for benefit reimbursement purposes.

Genetic DNA Testing

Genetic differences affect how people respond to food, giving unique nutritional needs for each person. Nutrigenomix involves a quick and simple saliva test to give a personalized nutrition report based on your unique genetic profile. Megan currently offers two genetic tests:
45 Gene-Health Test
 45 Gene-Sport Test
Genetic testing involves an initial appointment for saliva collection and one follow-up
appointment (1-hour) scheduled for 2-4 weeks later to explain your personalized nutrition
report and implications for your dietary requirements.
If you would like to see a sample personalized nutrition report and learn how genetic DNA
testing could improve your health, nutrition and performance, book a free appointment with Megan today. She would be happy to explain the test and answer any questions that you may have.
