Women's Health Panel Training Now Available!
We’ve launched a new Teachable course; specifically covering the GX Sciences Women’s Health Panel. Genetic testing for Women’s Health enables doctors and their patients to better understand where health issues may be occurring due to genetic variants. Learn more about the benefits of genomic testing, what is analyzed, and how to interpret the results to your patients by enrolling in the course. Gain a deeper understanding of how GX Sciences supports providers’ development of personalized treatment options. Providers also receive one complimentary test kit to try on themselves or a patient to follow along with the course and see live results.
For a limited time – enroll in the Training Course, receive a provider kit, and get 25% off!

GX Sciences President Michael Willoughby sat down with our key opinion leader for TrichoTest™ Dr. Alan J. Bauman (MD, ABHRS, IAHRS, FISHRS, Founder, CEO & Medical Director of Bauman Medical) for an exclusive interview discussing TrichoTest™ and how valuable it is for providers who want to treat their patients’ hair loss.
Introducing Provider Packages
We’re excited to announce Provider Packages; a more organized structure of the different services that providers can sign up with or upgrade to. While all new provider accounts start with the Starter package: it’s never been easier to upgrade to our Whitelabeling or Personalized Medicine (aka Custom) Packages and maximize the value, and savings, that GX Sciences provides as an all-in-one testing company and lab. Benefits include discounts on orders, white-labeled (aka private-labeled) or custom reports, kits & collateral, complimentary training courses, email marketing support, and more.
Why is it relevant?
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. On average, a woman is diagnosed with breast cancer, in the United States, every 2 minutes. Furthermore, nearly 85% of breast cancers occur in women who do not have family history of the cancer. In fact, genetic mutations caused by the aging process and everyday life are a major contributing factor to breast cancers. GX Sciences strives to educate our practitioners about genetic and environmental factors that could explain symptoms associated with various female disorders.
Why is it important?
About 1 in 8 women will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime. Our comprehensive nutrigenomic panel, Women’s Health, identifies underlying contributing factors to PCOS, hypothyroidism, estrogen dominant symptoms (ex. irregular menstrual cycles, fibrocystic breasts, excess facial/body hair, hair loss, mood changes), female cancers and history of miscarriage and/or fertility issues. This genetic test evaluates specific genes that involve estrogen metabolism. Hormonal issues with estrogen/progesterone balance and altered estrogen metabolism can lead to a higher risk of developing deep venous thrombosis, hypertension and altered blood pressure and fluid balance. In more severe cases, there is an increased risk for cancers, miscarriage, placental separation, pre-eclampsia and pulmonary embolisms. Genetic findings and interpretations through the GX Sciences supplementation algorithm can help determine:
- Insufficiencies in Vitamin Conversion & Delivery
- Hypertension & Clot Risks
- Issues in Estrogen Metabolism & Clearance
- Follicular Sensitivity in Ovarian Response
- Hormone Metabolism of Androgen Markers in Women
- Autophagy Consideration in Relation to Metabolic Risk Factors
