Reverse Cognitive Decline using Brain Tune Up Genomics Powered by IntellxxDNA

IntellxxDNA™ is your ultimate clinical decision support tool when it comes to reversal of cognitive decline. It makes genomics-based, personalized patient care obtainable and actionable.

IntellxxDNA™ delivers scientific explanations to help Dr. Sharlin and his team make sense of gene function when it comes to conditions like memory loss and Alzheimer’s disease. Using theIntellxxDNA™ custom array/chip means you will receive a well-researched report to align your DNA findings with evidence-based, potential intervention strategies.

The goal is to help you administer personalized, cutting-edge interventions based on exceptional genomic research integrity.

With Brain Tune Up! Genomics powered byIntellxxDNA™ you will be able to:

  • Expand your knowledge of gene function contributing to memory loss and Alzheimer’s disease
  • Review a range of evidence-based interventions aligned to your unique genomic profile
  • Learn about your risk of Alzheimer’s disease and why uncovered through genomic intelligence
  • Increase the success of the Brain Tune Up! Protocol overall by integrating information about your unique genetic profile.

You can’t change your DNA, but you can change DNA expression. Lifestyle, nutrition, habits, supplements and medications are potential interventions that can reduce risk and promote healthy gene expression. Your family history doesn’t have to be your destiny.

What is Clinical Genomic Testing?

You may have seen commercials for companies that provide DNA tests and health reports to the general public, often piggybacking on consumer interest in genealogy and ancestry. We appreciate that their marketing efforts have brought the concept of genomics and health into the public eye. However, these direct-to-consumer tests and reports are not medically comprehensive. In other words, they don’t tell the whole story.

Sharlin Health & Neurology uses the very best clinical genomics tool on the market – IntellxxDNA™. This tool provides your clinician with in-depth, evidence-based, science-focused genomic intelligence. When your results are ready, you will meet with your clinician to discuss the risks and benefits within your genomic profile, and review potential prevention or intervention strategies to help you achieve optimal health and wellness. The entire process supports an informed interpretation of test results and a better understanding of potential next steps.

What do genomics reports tell me?

IntellxxDNA™ reports don’t make decisions for you.

Instead, they provide unprecedented insight into your unique genetic make-up to assist your clinician in developing true, personalized care. How?

Your DNA contains variants, or SNPs (single nucleotide polymorphisms), that may signal potential benefits and potential risks that lie within your DNA. Our reports examine the complex interplay between these variants and how they can affect your quality of life. We include evidence-based, well-researched potential intervention strategies – encompassing environment, lifestyle, nutrition, supplements and medications – that will serve as a basis of discussion between you and your clinician.

Genomics seems scary. Do I really want to know?

And if I do know, what can I really do about it?

Your DNA is not your destiny. In fact, understanding your genomic profile empowers you to make intelligent health and wellness choices now that may impact your future quality of life. IntellxxDNA™ reports focus on the health and wellness of the whole person, rather than on isolated disease states. Your clinician will review your genomic profile as one of several factors of consideration when making clinical decisions to help you achieve optimal health.

Protect Against Coronavirus: Doing our Part to Help you

In these difficult times we want to share with you some brief bullet-points about Sharlin Health and Neurology and COVID-19:
  • First and foremost, we want you to know that the safety and well-being of each and every one of you is number one importance to us. If you have a chronic lung condition or another health reason that would make you susceptible to the more severe effects of the coronavirus, we want you to stay at home.
  • Sharlin Health and Neurology is considered an “essential” business because we provide critically needed care to those with neurological disease in our community. Despite the threat of the coronavirus conditions like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s disease, seizures, migraine, MS, and other neurological diseases do not go away. We are a privately-owned neurology practice here to serve our community.
  • We follow all CDC guidelines for protection against the dissemination of coronavirus. There have not been any known cases of coronavirus in our office, among staff and those customers who have entered our door. 
  • We have six available exam rooms in our clinic and every effort will be made to prevent patients from having to stay in our waiting room. We can move you quickly from the reception desk to a private exam room, and have the doctor meet you there.
  • If you are sequestered at home, it may be possible to visit with you by telemedicine. We have the capability of using a telemedicine portal though the smart phone or computer that is HIPAA compliant and allows us to see you and speak with you. Alternatively, we can speak by telephone. Please ask our receptionist.
  • If you do come to our clinic for a doctor visit or a need a test please do not touch any surfaces you can avoid touching, and come by yourself or – if you do need to have someone with you – have them bring you to the door and we will help you from that point. If they wait in their vehicle, we can call them when you are finished.
  • If you have had contact with a person with known or suspected COVID-19, have had contact with a person coughing or with fever in the past 14 days, or you yourself have a fever, cough, or runny nose in the past 14 days, please let us know and we will either reschedule you or schedule you a telemedicine visit.
