Essential Takeaways

You don’t need to be a doctor to be a DNA Health Coach. It’s not medical genetics – you are not diagnosing or treating anyone. You’re going through their genetics, seeing their risks, and making recommendations.
DNA is only one part of the story – always be aware of labs, diet, lifestyle, history, etc.
Understand the details of your clients’ lifestyle and how that affects their risks.
