Men’s Health Panel

While life expectancy has increased over the last few decades, there continues to be a longevity gap between men and women. On average, women live five years longer than men. Men are also more likely than women to have chronic illnesses. There are biological, behavioral, and social factors contributing to the gender gap. Safe Harbour Wellness hopes to promote an increase in life expectancy and quality of life by helping men understand their genetic tendencies and provide personalized recommendations via DNA analysis. Knowing your genetic predisposition allows you and your physician to help determine the proper course of treatment for your nutritional, hormonal and/or metabolic deficiencies. It can also make you more aware of the signs and symptoms of possible complications from hormonal therapy.

The Safe Harbour Wellness Men’s Health Panel consists of 11 gene variants (SNPs) that have been chosen by our medical experts which play a significant role in:
• Testosterone Conversion and Breakdown
• Estrogen Formation
• Risk of Metabolic Weakness
• Risk of Hypertension

Hormonal and metabolic abnormalities in men can produce a number of undesirable affects, such as weight gain, hair loss, fatigue, decrease sex drive and mood disturbances. In many men, their genetic inheritance has altered the way they process hormones such as testosterone. Additionally, new evidence indicates that certain treatable genetic differences can create a relative difficulty in maintaining appropriate hormonal levels as we age. Replacing testosterone has become commonplace in today’s medicine, however, without knowing your genetic make-up, hormone replacement can be less effective or, in some cases, potentially dangerous

Hormones influence complex processes involving mood, sexual function, reproduction, metabolism, growth and development. Glands present across the body release these chemical messengers, usually in cascades. Hormone imbalances and disorders can occur when there’s an issue in production and / or delivery of specific hormones. One’s environment can impact hormone production. Chemicals one’s exposed to can disrupt pathways and conversions required for proper hormone production. 95% of all testosterone in males is produced in the testes, balanced by the brain and adrenal gland. Testosterone levels begin to decrease in mid-thirties. Whether impacted by one’s environment or one’s own biological changes, an imbalance in testosterone levels can add to a decrease in muscle strength, libido, and bone density. Symptoms of a hormone imbalance include decreases in muscle strength, libido, mental clarity, stamina in addition to depression and poor concentration. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, you may want to visit your physician and consider a men’s health panel.

The prostate is a gland found between the bladder and the penis with the urethra running through its center. Its smooth muscles help eject semen and prostatic fluid, improving the possibility for fertilization during intercourse. Most men experience two stages of prostate growth: after puberty and later in life, as early as 25 years old for some. Prostate conditions such as benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH) can make urination difficult and painful, possibly exacerbating the prostate condition or triggering related health issues.

Inflammation plays a large role in some prostate conditions. Prostatitis is a condition sometimes caused by infection where the prostate becomes inflamed. While no cause of BPH / enlarged prostate have been determined, studies have shown inflammation to be a contributing factor. Symptoms may include inability to completely empty the bladder, a weak stream, and difficulty starting and / or finishing peeing. The enlarged prostate constricts the urethra and does not allow the bladder to completely empty, further exacerbating the issue. Safe Harbour Wellnessunderstands how inflammation can wreak havoc on the body, leading to premature aging and chronic diseases. Our genetic experts identified SNPs that speak to genetic tendencies for chronic inflammation. Promote prostate health through reducing chronic inflammation.

Safe Harbour Wellness’s Men’s Health Panel - Not Just Science While biological factors play a large role in life expectancy and quality of life, so do social and behavioral factors. Women are considered to have larger and more intimate social networks, reducing the risk factors for heart attacks, depression, and strokes. Women are also less likely to participate in risky behavior, making it more likely that they stay out of harm's’ way. With the help of Safe Harbour Wellness’sMen’s Health Panel, we hope to empower men to take their health into their own hands and proactively make lifestyle changes before life forces them to with the help of our genetic analysis and personalized nutrition and supplement recommendations.

SNP testing allows patients and their doctors to gain a better understanding of what’s happening on a genetic and cellular-level. Completed in 2012, The 1000 Genomes Project and its’ accompanying research, allowed the scientific community to identify the physical and functional standpoint of specific gene changes. This project and continuing research has helped scientists and doctors determine which SNPs (mutations) are harmful and which are not a concern to your health. When a patient has SNP testing, doctors can focus their attention on genetic mutations that can lead to poor health and offer the patient guidance in the prevention of health problems or create a protocol to help those with current health problems.* * These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.

Perfect marriage of Innovative DNA Testing and Proprietary Interpretation Software.

Our Nutrigenomics tests, are much more than your typical laboratory’s DNA Genomic Test. In fact, our system is the perfect marriage between forward thinking Interpretation Software and Innovative Nutrigenomics Testing. In addition to being the most comprehensive DNA Nutrigenomics test available, the real magic lies within our proprietary SNP Interpretation software.

Our innovative software, takes the guesswork out of the physician’s results interpretation, as it links any identified SNPs to the recommended nutritional support that lends the greatest potential for the most optimal patient outcome. This software provides a detail and a summary, showing highly recommended nutritional support therapeutics, the nutritional or pharmacological support best left to the provider’s discretion, lifestyle recommendations, as well as any suggested additional laboratory testing one should consider.

This saves the provider valuable time that could be better spent on patient care, rather than looking up specific SNPs and the associated supplemental support. Additionally, the concise format of our report provides an easy to understand outline to better ensure alignment between patient and provider.
