About genetics testing and precision medicine
Knowledge and understanding of the human genetics have tremendously increased over the last 30 years, notably due to the technology developments such as diverse genetic arrays and next generation sequencing. The elucidation of the human genome allowed subsequently to sequence the genome of a big number of individuals and diverse human ethnicities, to compare them among each other, to establish a haplotype map of the human genome and, to identify sequences that are related to a disease development.
Eight trends shaping the Future of Health
Health and wellbeing have advanced significantly over the past 90 years since Clinique La Prairie first opened its doors. Science has always been part of our institution, through its Medical Specialists and a Scientific Committee who have been contributing to develop the clinic’s leading expertise and to design the best health programs.
To mark our 90th milestone, we are pleased to introduce report into future health and wellness trends, based on insights from a team of internal and external experts in various fields of medicine and biosciences, combined with a consumer research survey.
The report reveals what we think are the eight key trends for health and wellness that push the boundaries of medicine and science more than ever before.
Plant extracts to fight sleep dysfunction and improve cognitive balance
Sleep is a complex restorative process interconnected with many biological processes and crucial for our cognitive balance and physical wellbeing. Today, science and research unlock the deep cellular effects of disrupted sleep on metabolism, hormone regulation, inflammation, immune functioning and gene expression.
What does Detox mean?
Detox treatment, detox food… current wellness trends include an increasing drive to detoxify our bodies. Behind the catchy name lies a health reality : our bodies do indeed need to regenerate and purify themselves.
The Immune System, A key mission to our health
Thanks to our immune system, we are able to deal in a more efficient way with a disease that we have already had, or against which we have been vaccinated. It can be empowered by its adaptive mechanisms to reinforce its capacity of response to future threats. This ability is due to the fact that the immune system keeps track of the pathogens or malignant cells it has fought, which allows it to recognize and protect itself from them. Without immune protection, a simple scratch would be potentially fatal.
