What Do The Reports Show?
IntellxxDNA reports serve as your guide to understanding your child’s unique genetic makeup, empowering the clinicians at Midwest Center for Brain Health to craft a truly personalized care plan. Your child’s DNA carries special markers called SNPs (single nucleotide polymorphisms) that hint at both strengths and vulnerabilities. Our reports dive deep into this genetic puzzle, revealing how these markers can impact your child’s well-being.
We provide evidence-backed strategies that cover everything from lifestyle and nutrition to supplements and medications. These serve as the foundation for meaningful conversations between you and the clinicians at Midwest Center for Brain Health, ensuring the best path forward for your child’s health.

What is clinical genomic testing, and how does it differ from tests I can order myself?
You might have come across advertisements for DNA tests available to the public, often linked to genealogy and ancestry research. These tests have sparked interest in genomics and health, but it’s important to note that direct-to-consumer tests are not as comprehensive as clinical genomic testing. They don’t provide a complete picture of your child’s health.
IntellxxDNA™ offers your child’s clinician at Midwest Center for Brain Health in-depth, science-based genomic insights. After your child’s test results are ready, you will meet with their clinician to discuss their genomic profile, the associated risks, and potential strategies for prevention or intervention to support their optimal health and well-being. This process ensures that the test results are understood in context, guiding the next steps in your child’s care.
What information do IntellxxDNA reports provide for my child?
IntellxxDNA reports don’t make decisions for you, but they offer invaluable insights into your child’s unique genetic makeup to help their clinician at Midwest Center for Brain Health develop personalized care. Here’s how it works:
Your child’s DNA contains variations called SNPs (single nucleotide polymorphisms), which can indicate both advantages and risks. Our reports analyze how these variations interact and influence your child’s quality of life. We include evidence-based recommendations encompassing lifestyle, nutrition, supplements, and medications, which serve as a basis for discussion between you and your child’s clinician.
I'm worried about some of the risks that may be revealed in my child's DNA. Is it worth it, and what can we really do about it?
Your child’s DNA is not their destiny. Understanding their genomic profile empowers you to make informed choices that can impact their future quality of life. Their clinician will consider the genomic profile as one of several factors when making clinical decisions to support your child’s optimal health.
Why do I need to order this report through my child's doctor or clinician?
Medical genomics is a complex field, even for well-trained clinicians. IntellxxDNA ensures that clinicians at the Midwest Center for Brain Health stay up-to-date with ongoing education, providing access to the latest evidence-based genomic interpretations. Requiring IntellxxDNA providers to be licensed medical professionals allows us to include advanced medical information in our reports.
Your child’s genomic makeup is foundational information that should be understood within the context of their overall health profile. Your healthcare provider at Midwest Center for Brain Health will use genomic intelligence to personalize clinical decisions based on your child’s unique healthcare needs and goals.

What is included in MCBH’s Brain Optimization Programs?
- Personalized recommendations focused on sleep, nutrition, exercise, stress management, brain stimulation exercises and targeted supplementation and, when necessary and appropriate, pharmaceuticals. The program will also address toxin or heavy metal exposures, hormone imbalances and infections that may be contributing to your symptoms.
- Recommendations for additional testing based on the areas of concern identified in your initial Brain Health Assessment. Lab testing could include advanced lab panels to help identify hormone imbalances, toxin or heavy metal exposures and infections, for example.
- Regular visits with your doctor to implement your treatment plan, evaluate your progress, and make adjustments as necessary.
- Access to your doctor for quick questions and clarifications in between visits by secure portal messages and by phone.
- All the support, encouragement, knowledge and tools you need to be successful in implementing your treatment plan and transforming your brain health and overall wellness.
- Your investment in an MCBH program will range from $6,400 to $10,000 plus the cost of additional lab testing and supplements. To put this into perspective, nursing home care typically costs over $100,000 per year. Our goal is to delay or eliminate the need for nursing home care and help people remain independent as long as possible.
