Personalized Medicine

Most medical treatments are designed for the “average patient” as a “one-size-fits-all” approach that is successful for some patients but not for others. Precision medicine, sometimes known as “personalized medicine” is an innovative approach to disease prevention and treatment which  takes into account differences in people’s genes, environments and lifestyles.

At Executive Health Centre we are recognized global experts in the field of personalized medicine. It’s about collecting a complete set of information about you to manage your health and wellbeing more precisely and effectively by leveraging precision medicine, the digitization of medical data and the power of predictive analytics.
Your biometric data will predict, prevent and aid in early detection of diseases. By understanding your unique physiology, our integrated health team will help to determine the best preventive approaches to managing your health risk or therapeutic methods to manage your chronic conditions.
We will boost your health physically and mentally, and improve your quality of life. This is truly preventive care. It focuses on preventing you from getting sick rather than treating you after you fall ill.


Achieving Peak Health
Dr. Elaine Chin, Founder,
Executive Health Centre

At Executive Health Centre we help people take charge of their health to live a long and healthy life. We bring a high touch, personalized and preventative approach with leading edge testing, proven science, and a holistic health action plan to ensure that you will live a healthier and longer life.

Putting New Scientific Discoveries to Work for You

“I’ve spent half of my 25-year career as a doctor working to prevent our clients from becoming ill. We will test your genetics and measure your lifestyle, nutrient and hormonal biomarkers to assess how your body is “ticking.” We then figure out how we can modify your lifestyles and adjust your diet, supplements, hormones, and medications to reduce the risk of disease. It sounds like a lot to take in at once, but you’ll be amazed at how it can be done with small grdual changes which will lead to big improvements in your health .”

Elaine Chin, M.D.


What Sets Us Apart

Using Innovation Health‘s platform we integrate your unique genomic, lifestyle, family history, and clinical data. These data sets are combined and analyzed with a proprietary analysis engine to produce comprehensive and individualized health information backed by peer-reviewed citations and raw data.

Our program provides health assessments that are reviewed and guided by a physician-led integrated health team on over 40 common complex diseases including heart disease, diabetes, and some forms of cancer, among others. For each disease, we will show you, your modifiable (diet, behaviour) and non-modifiable (genetics, family history) risk factors so that you and your health coach can choose a course of action based on variables you can control and change. In addition, our platform offers “what if” analysis to visualize how your changes in behaviour can impact your disease risk and wellness over time.

Key Features

 Comprehensive physician-guided health assessment – includes the identification of actionable risk factors and graphs visualizing risk over time
  • “What If” analysis – allows individuals to input hypothetical lifestyle changes to visualize how modifiable risk factors can affect long-term wellness
  • Physical activity tracking – integration with FitBit; integration with other biometric devices in development
  • Food and drug responses – based on the individual’s collected medical history and genetic data to reveal potential responses to several foods and drugs
  • Food ranking – includes the entire USDA food database, ranked in order of nutritional fit for the individual user
  • HealthReader™ – a comprehensive and personalized knowledge base for health news, conditions, drugs, and treatments
  • Accessible via an online dashboard and an iPhone application

 For the first time in personalized medicine, the health consumer can understand their genomic information in combination with their personal health data. Together with the risk assessment analysis, an individual will be able to target areas to change, which will have the most impact to reducing their disease risk and optimizing their overall health.

Our Programs

It’s time to see precision medicine in action for your personalized health care needs.

We focus on keeping you healthy and being physically and mentally resilient to illness, injury and emotional setbacks. Armed with your health information, our holistic healthcare team will coach you to achieve your personal best.
Critics of the preventative approach often ask, “What proof do you have that what you are doing works – that lifestyle changes, managing nutrients and hormone levels better can slow down chronic disease? The answer lies in our telomeres – the tips of our chromosomes – which keep our DNA stable. When our telomeres become critically short, increased disease risk results and we must rely on repair mechanisms. Published research studies show that those things we preach in a wellness lifestyle, do impact the health of telomeres and hence onset of disease.
Learn more about telomeres from author, Dr. Elaine Chin, Lifelines: Unlocking the Secrets for the Longer Healthier Life.
At Executive Health Centre, our programs are customized to meet your medical concerns and health goals. Pricing is dependent on program design and follow-up options. The following are some program examples:

Telomere Science Has Come of Age.

Your telomeres are your DNA ‘lifelines’. As they shorten over time due to the biological effects of glycation, oxidation, inflammation, hormonal imbalance and mental stressors, your risk of developing disease increases. We can take preventive steps to stop premature telomere shortening from happening.

Pharmacogenetics Test

Plasma drug levels can vary more than 1000 fold when the same drug dose is administered to two individuals having approximately the same weight. As a person takes more than one drug – the drug-drug or drug-genes interactions get more complicated. Most chronic disease patients take more than 6 drugs per day – some prescription, others are over the counter drugs and supplements.

The testing is simple. DNA is easily collected by a cheek swab, followed by lab analysis. The test reads your ability to process or metabolize prescriptions or over-the-counter drugs by your liver enzymes. In other words, it’s a drug sensitivity test. It’s not just about the ability to process a drug safely but rather the importance of achieving an optimal dose of medications.

Program Process

We begin your program with a consultation, in person or by phone. We’ll ask you questions about your health concerns, present status and personal goals – something perhaps your doctor has never asked you to think about before. We will customize your health program, which may include additional testing beyond our core testing protocol based on this initial assessment.

Once we agree on the details of your program, we will set up your diagnostic appointment at our clinic. When your results are in, we will sit down together, as an integrated healthcare  team, to review your Health Scorecard and create your personal Health Action Plan. Depending on the follow on process you select, we will retest your metrics as required, and adjust your health plan to resolve your concerns, address issues and support you to achieve your health goals.

Executive Health Centre hosts Nobel Laureate Dr. Elizabeth Blackburn in Toronto, Canada

An Evening with Nobel Laureate Dr. Elizabeth Blackburn

Not everyone is a believer. Some ask us: What evidence do you have that preventive care really works? Can you prove that your recommendations actually prevent disease and help people live longer? Our answer is a resounding yes. The supportive proof is the Nobel Prize–winning research into a field that simply didn’t exist a generation ago: telomere biology. This area of work was so significant that in 2009 the Nobel Prize in Medicine was awarded jointly to three scientists, Drs. Elizabeth Blackburn, Carol Greider, and Jack Szostak, for discovering how telomeres protect our chromosomes and identifying the importance of the enzyme telomerase in this process.
