Genomic Medicine

Thanks to the Human Genome Project, We Better Understand Our Health By Understanding Our Genes

This is different from genetics, which studies hereditary inheritance—Genomic Medicine is about visualizing your genes and DNA, scrutinizing the fine-grained details, then using that knowledge to create a long-term longevity plan for you.

Genomic Medicine gives us an unprecedented level of understanding of our physical makeup, which allows us to truly personalize anti-aging healthcare programs.

In Thailand, this approach to diagnosing and proactively treating the diseases associated with growing old can make a big impact on three things:

  1. You looking better
  2. You feeling better
  3. You having peace of mind from a certain level of control over your health


Identifying your genetic predisposition to, and the possible root causes of, major chronic diseases—as opposed to merely diagnosing and treating symptoms—has resulted in many effective new longevity therapies. (Most famously, perhaps, is the prevention of polyps in colorectal cancer, where a particular gene mutation was identified as being susceptible to NSAID medication, leading to much higher survival rates for patients.)

What Is Precision Medicine?

Precision Medicine has been called “the key component of healthy longevity,” not only because of its use of advanced genetic testing, but because it allows doctors to personalize preventive therapies for patients. Thailand’s top hospitals and clinics are able to precisely analyze your genes for disease probability, confirm the likelihood of their onset more accurately than usual, and then design targeted functional medicine treatments earlier than usual.

What Is Functional Medicine?

At the heart of Functional Medicine is a caring approach that treats patients as individuals, not statistics. It looks beyond symptoms to uncover and address underlying causes of illness in a way that engages you and your physician in a therapeutic partnership. This allows for a deep exploration of how your genome and your lifestyle impact the aging process, and for personalized treatments which often have higher success rates for long-term health outcomes.

The following therapies are some of the main pillars of Functional Medicine.

Detoxification is a way to reset your body chemistry so that your physical systems can perform more properly. Once a healthy, all-natural ‘detox’ program has been completed, you will have something approximating a ‘clean slate’ on which you and your physician can conduct therapies that protect you from illness and disease long term.
Functional Medicine can help you reduce chronic inflammation and restore balance to your body’s natural defense mechanisms. Even though inflammation is a way for your body to remove harmful stimuli like bacteria, when it stays too long it can work against you and cause insomnia, fatigue, anxiety, depression, and a host of gastrointestinal disorders.
Mounting research reveals the intricate connection between an unbalanced microbiome and chronic illnesses. These ‘diseases of the gut’ include inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), Type 2 diabetes, liver disease, heart disease, and even certain forms of cancer – all from digestive tract inflammation! Don’t let a troubled gut undermine your quality of life.
You may have heard recently that ‘Mitochondria’ are the powerhouse of your cells. This is true, in that they are responsible for producing much of your body’s fuel. And while they are quite resilient, they can become overworked by a process called ‘oxidative stress’ which is another type of system imbalance that can be reversed by Functional Medicine.
We should be able to live our everyday lives in harmony with what our biology predicts, but many of us struggle to find a balance. This manifests in chronic inflammation, extreme fatigue, and poor mood regulation – all of which can be brought under control with the right diagnostic testing and a functional approach to taking control of your health.
So much can be said about the causes of anxiety and depression, but one thing that is often overlooked is the correlation between physical health and mental health. If you are suffering from symptoms of depression and you recognize that you do not take care of your body in an age-appropriate manner, then an integrative Functional Medicine program in Thailand could be just what the doctor ordered! Imagine receiving relaxing therapies derived from Traditional Chinese Medicine, Traditional Thai Medicine, acupuncture, massage, meditation, a proper wake/exercise/sleep regimen, and a detoxifying nutrition program for 10-14 days, accompanied by the gentle murmur of the sea in a quiet, pristine, beachside retreat in Thailand. ImagineHealth can facilitate all that for you, and more.

Predict and Prevent the Onset of Disease With Genomic Medicine in Thailand


If you are considering Regenerative Medicine, talk about all the benefits and risks with your healthcare provider.

Research for the different applications of Regenerative Medicine is promising and rapidly growing. Unfortunately, Regenerative Medicine is considered investigational and has not been officially approved by the Thai FDA for most uses, just like in most other countries around the world. However, Thai physicians can prescribe and administer Regenerative Medicine if they believe it’s in the patient’s best interest and the treatment is safe. But, lack of approval means that Regenerative Medicine may not be covered by insurance.
