Earlier in the month a great article was published which included the largest genetic analysis of depressed patients (Hyde et al. 2016 Nature America).  The new SNPs (parts of DNA) identified will help scientists identify newer treatments for depressed patients.
At Nashville Center of Hope & Healing, we have been using genetic testing for over five years now to help our patients get well sooner than the standard treatment as usual. Genetic testing is not diagnostic, but by identifying pharmacokinetic, and pharmacodynamic genes which patients may have, we are able to select medications and treatments with more accuracy than before.  We help you find hope through using the most up to date scientific treatments and tests.  Come learn more about our unique approach to wellness.
