Total Health Program - Telomere Performance

What are Telomeres?

Telomeres are the genetic end tips of your chromosomes. They’re like the plastic tips on shoelaces because of the way they prevent chromosome ends from unraveling and sticking to each other – which can lead to premature cell death and health problems. Telomeres shorten naturally as we age, but glycation (unstable blood sugar control), oxidation (free radicals damage), inflammation (tissue response to injury/infection), and other lifestyle stressors shorten them, even faster.

Science-Based Telomere Performance

The Telomere Performance Program works to stop premature shortening from happening and offers ways to re-lengthen them by activating the enzyme, telomerase.

Our gold-standard program makes available to you all our expertise in personalized medicine and the use of precision medicine diagnostics.

This will enable our highly specialized experts to customize your health action plan to meet your health and anti-aging goals.

Key Precision Diagnostics:

  • Determine your biological age by monitoring your telomere length
  • Use predictive genetics to discover lifestyle and nutritional risks and to customize your exercise and nutrition plan accordingly
  • Measure biomarkers of aging so you understand your risks of glycation, inflammation, oxidative stress, and hormonal imbalances
  • Assess your nutritional needs with a full profile of your vitamin, mineral, organic and amino acids levels
  • Determine any food sensitivities which can increase inflammatory effects
  • Evaluate your mental health markers by monitoring your neurotransmitter (brain chemical) levels

    I understand that the program being offered supports my wellness and provides insights into how I can improve my resiliency against developing certain medical conditions. This program is not to be considered treatments for any chronic medical conditions. Testing programs are not designed to be the only source of health care that I receive. They do not replace the role of a general health care practitioner. They are to be considered a supplement to my health care regime. It is recommended that I forward my results to my physician for review. This will aid in my full understanding of the results. My physician may suggest that further investigative tests be conducted based on these findings. Testing programs taken in isolation do not confirm the presence or absence of potentially serious medical conditions.

    Coaching is provided by fully accredited or licensed contractors of Health-in-a-Box.

    I am aware that testing of my biological specimens is required for my health program. Any or all of these may be sampled and utilized in the testing: blood, saliva, urine or cheek swab. I acknowledge that testing analysis is completed within licensed and certified laboratory in either Canada or the United States. However, as with any laboratory test, there is a possibility that a laboratory error may occur or that no results are obtained. The quality of results can vary based on the quantity and quality of the samples provided for testing.

    1. I understand that my test results are sent directly to the office of Dr. Elaine Chin in Toronto, Canada, from laboratories accredited in Canada and the United States. I am aware that the results from testing these samples will be placed into my Personal Healthcare Record, MyWellnessFile, which I will have access to for one year from the date of purchase. The results are confidential. The office of Dr. Chin will not share the information with outside parties, including other healthcare professionals or government healthcare departments, federal provincial or state, unless I have specifically requested, in writing, that this be done.
