The Science

VIRTUAL WELLNESS:

Science meets technology. We are one click away! No waiting time in the doctor's office and easy access to the latest innovative medical practice.

Fruit Street's tele-health software is possible through a joint venture agreement with VSee, the world's largest telemedicine video engine with more than 3 million users. Fruit Street and VSee collaborated to build a telemedicine product that helps healthcare providers conduct HIPAA compliant video calls and monitor the diet and lifestyle of their patients using wearable devices and mobile applications.

Special features for patients:

  • Sync your Fitbit accounts and share the data with your healthcare provider
  • Upload medical tests from multiple sources for your records
    Take pictures of your food and receive feedback from your healthcare provider
    View goals that your healthcare provider sets for you
  • The user dashboard provides patients with a snapshot of number of steps taken, hours slept, calories burned, heart rate, blood pressure and blood glucose

LIFESTYLE MEDICINE:

Personalized lifestyle medicine is a newly developed term that refers to an approach to medicine in which an individual's health metrics from point of care diagnostics are used to develop lifestyle medicine oriented therapeutic strategies for improving individual health outcomes in managing chronic disease. Personalized lifestyle medicine can be integral throughout a patient's life, from prevention to preclinical symptoms to disease manifestation and progression. It encompasses a broad array of disciplines in order to effectively prevent and treat disease.

The delivery of personalized advice requires accurate measurements of one's physiology through genomic analysis and molecular diagnostics. Tailored biomarkers, molecular imaging, rapid assessments, though point of care devices, telemedicine, and individualized therapeutic treatments are gradually replacing the standardized, "one size fits all" form of medicine, ultimately providing the best form of care, reducing costs, and enhancing safety by limiting side effects.

NUTRIGENOMINCS:

The science of nutrigenomics describes how nutrition modulates the expression of our genes and is is being acknowledged as essential for understanding the role of diet in maintenance of wellness, prevention of chronic diseases optimal aging.

PathwayFit® is a genetic nutrition and exercise profile that tells you and your doctor how you may react to specific types of food and exercise, and provides insights into how your body may process sugars, fats, nutrients and vitamins. Pathway Genomics provides a personalized report that has powerful information and recommendations- all aimed at helping you optimize your health.

By providing an individualized roadmap of strategies and recommendations based upon a patient's genetics our testing guides a patient towards optimal health. View sample report here.

THE HUMAN MICROBIOME:

The most ignored organ of the body in the history of medicine. Meet your bacteria in the gut!

Your microbiome contains ten times more cells than you have in your whole body, and it accounts for somewhere around three to six pounds of your total weight.

Your bacteria perform all sorts of vital jobs. For example they help your gut digest foods that it wouldn't otherwise be able to digest. Other bacteria enable your body to synthesize vitamins, and nutrients, produce short-chain fatty acids, protect against pathogens, train the immune system, modulate the nervous system and support detoxification.

The latest research has associated the imbalance of our microbiome (dysbiosis) with the origin of diseases of lifestyle including obesity, diabetes, heart disease, memory problems, autism, depression and many more.

Furthermore, it has become clear that diet can have a major influence on microbial community composition, which should open up new possibilities for health manipulation via diet. Optimizing our intestinal bacteria can offer us with an opportunity to improve our health and wellbeing.
