know your gene, know your self

Swa = Self in Sanskrit || Swagene = “My Gene”

The way we treat our health must change

When we fall sick, we wait until it gets unbearable or worrisome before seeking help. And then we get stuck in clinics and hospitals for hours to days at a time spending a lot of money, while work piles up at office. Not to mention the pain, a truckload of medicine and invasive surgical procedures that are all designed to treat the symptoms without curing the cause. There has to be a better way, right?

Stop taking non-personalized prescriptions! Stop having unwanted surgeries and procedures! Stop taking so many medicines that will do more harm than good to your body! Start with Precision Medicine to only take medicines and undergo procedures that are going to really benefit you.

That’s what we do! We identify from your genes, exactly which medication, surgeries, procedures will help you regain health. We test your genes and give you personalized suggestions for your diet and lifestyle, for your beauty and nutrition, and for your fitness and excellence. All our customers have together saved millions of dollars in healthcare expenses and lifestyle costs.

One size does NOT fit all – You are unique and we get it.
