Episode #93: Genetic Testing – Making Sense Of The Science

What a fascinating conversation I had today with Amanda Schuh, one of our health coaches and Wellness Coordinator at Brandwein Institute for Nutrition and Wellness.

You see, she just completed her genetic testing and after she reviewed it with me she was amazed at what she had learned. 

In today’s podcast, you will get to hear all about her journey and how this testing has answered so many of the questions she has had about her own health.
