A full individual membership to SelfDecode is available for just $59 per year. We also offer a special discounted family plan that lets you upload gene files for up to three individual members for just $118 per year. The family plan comes with three introductory and six premium reports that can be used by any member on the account.

SelfDecode Professional Plan members have access to all DNA Wellness reports for an unlimited number of  patient files. 

Can I order DNA Wellness Reports even if I am not a SelfDecode member?

Yes! We offer a special membership to SelfDecode that includes access to our Gene Reports without any of the other features included in a full membership. Under this plan, you can order an Introductory Gene Report for $49, as well as our more specialized Gene Reports for $59 each.

What happens after I order my Wellness Report?

After you purchase your DNA Wellness Report, you will be redirected to a page where you can upload your genetic data. You’ll then be able to download your report under the Wellness Reports tab.

Can I see a sample of what is included in a DNA Wellness Report?

Yes! You can look at a sample report using Joe Cohen’s DNA data here.

Where should I get my genes tested?

We recommend 23andme, as our gene reports include the SNPs that are on the latest version of the 23andme chip.
However, you can still use data from other genetic testing services, such as Ancestry and FamilyTreeDNA, if you prefer -- just be aware that not every testing company will include each and every SNP that we analyze in our DNA Wellness Reports.
Please note that we are not a subsidiary or partner of these companies.

What if the most important SNPs are not included in my genome file?

We have specifically designed our DNA Wellness Reports to analyze the SNPs that can give you the most reliable and actionable information about your health. Although individual SNPs are only a small part of your overall genetic profile, we can still make the best out of whatever genetic information you have -- even if it is not totally complete!  Therefore, the interpretation of your SNPs and health advice derived from them should be taken into account in the context of your symptoms, health status, and lifestyle. Even if your genome file is missing certain SNPs, our software will take into account all available data to generate your DNA Wellness Report and to make appropriate lifestyle recommendations. 

How do I know my data is secure?

We take your privacy and data security very seriously. This is why we employ multiple layers of data protection, including:

Secured data encryption.

Restricting employee access to personally identifiable information.

Only collecting the minimum information necessary to provide you with your requested services.

We do not and will not sell or make available any of your data to third-party companies.

Your payment is processed by secured and reputable companies such as PayPal and Stripe.

You can read our privacy policy here.


Our reports are designed for informational purposes only, and not for the treatment or diagnosis of disease. We aim to provide helpful insights and easy to implement lifestyle recommendations to help you achieve your health and wellness goals. You should consult with your doctor before using any recommendations provided in our gene reports, especially if pregnant, nursing, taking medication or have pre-existing medical conditions.

Refund Policy

Due to the nature of the intricate research that goes in to these reports, we will not be able to provide a refund once you have uploaded your genetic information into our site for the purpose of the Gene Reports.

The key to improving your mood and happiness is to identify the problems within network of genetic pathways that worsen your mood, and attack them systematically rather than taking a one-size-fits-all remedy.

To achieve happiness and good mood, your neurotransmitters need to be well balanced with each other. Any imbalance caused by chronic inflammation, poor circadian rhythm, or stress can throw off your mood.

The SelfDecode Mood DNA Wellness Report profiles 165 of the most influential SNPs in 92 genes (supported by 260 PubMed references) that may predispose you to the following neurotransmitter imbalances:








Your unique genetics, along with symptoms of possible neurotransmitter imbalances, can help you uncover key issues that may lead to poor mood and cognitive function. Aside from a breakdown of your SNPs, you will also receive gene-based recommendations to optimize your neurotransmitters.

Your degree of sensitivity to oxytocin (the “hug” hormone/neurotransmitter) and endocannabinoids influence how well you maintain emotional balance in response to stress.

Oxytocin is a major brain hormone (neuropeptide) that plays many roles, including lowering the stress response and promoting good mood. Versions of the oxytocin gene that function better are associated with greater ability to tolerate stress.
If you can handle stress better, your mood will generally improve.

Having higher FAAH gene activity means that cannabinoids -- your natural bliss molecules -- are broken down more quickly, reducing the overall activity of your brain’s endocannabinoid system. Because this system plays a key role in counteracting the stress response and enhancing mood, carriers of risk alleles in this gene are more likely to experience mood problems. Therefore, you may be able to counteract your risk by inhibiting the FAAH gene, as well as by increasing the activity of your cannabinoid system in general.

Activating neurotransmitters like dopamine and acetylcholine could boost your motivation and feelings of happiness. On the other hand, Low levels of these neurotransmitters could result in low mood and motivation.

Covers ALL Important Genes using SelfDecode’s Deep Science Research





In addition, other reports have shoddy science. This mood reports has 260 pubmed references and was written by a neuroscientist PhD, with the help of biohacking expert Joe Cohen and others. 

To our awareness, this is the first report that covers the most important genes related to mood. In addition, this is the most comprehensive genetic report on this subject on the market. Other companies include anywhere from 1-20 SNPs, whereas our reports cover a whopping 165 SNPs. 

SelfDecode Polygenic Risk Scores TM

Most importantly, we devised a proprietary algorithm to predict your polygenic risk scores, which take into account the information from all of your SNPs rather than analyzing them individually.

Not only is this the most comprehensive and highest quality report on the market, it's also one of the most affordable ones. 

Make the Most of Your Neurochemistry Genetic Information with these features:

Comprehensive overview of the most important genes related to each aspect of mood regulation

Comprehensive risk interpretations based on your unique combination of SNPs 

A list of your SNPs in our gene tables


A worksheet to help you identify potential neurotransmitter imbalances based on your symptoms profile
