Over the past few years, there has been an increased focus on the importance of mental health. The National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) has reported adults showing symptoms of anxiety or depressive disorder in 2020 and 2021, spiking up by 33.9% and 42.4% respectively.
The spike in 2020-2021 has led to a record number of adults being prescribed mental health medications. As we begin to emerge from the pandemic and isolation people's emotional and psychological health is crucial to maintaining their overall well-being. But there is a way the approach to treating mental health can be improved.
ClarityX believes that treatment and medications are not designed to fit everyone. What works for some may not work for others. That is why they developed the Mindwell Test. ClarityX’s Mindwell Test employs the science of pharmacogenetics testing, a genetic screening method that identifies how well patients will respond to prescription medications based on their genetic makeup.
The test gives individuals and healthcare providers a precise more complete picture of a patient's profile. It also provides them with a complete list of FDA-approved medications and dosage guidelines that will work best for them, based on their unique genetic profile. A Mindwell Test also helps individuals avoid medications that can cause side effects that could have adverse effects on their health or worsen their mental health condition. The test also considers other factors such as current medications and past treatments.
ClarityX's Mindwell Test helps patients avoid the pain of trial and error, and frequent switching of medications and also saves precious time and money as well. And because genes do not change over time, the patients' Mindwell test results will remain valid for life, and the treatment plan they get from their tests will serve them for years. Patients can request a ClarityX test for Depression, Anxiety, ADHD, OCD, Bipolar Disorder, and PTSD medications.
Individuals can perform ClarityX’s Mindwell Test in the comfort of their home. They simply need to go online to request the test and finish the checkout process. Once they receive their test kit, all they have to do is activate it online, do a simple cheek swab, and send back the sample using the pre-paid envelope provided. Patients can then check their test results via their patient portal and share them with their doctor.
ClarityX uses the highest industry-rated clinical-grade DNA collection kits that are easy to use and specifically designed to protect patients' samples from getting contaminated. ClarityX also only uses nationally CLIA-certified and CAP-accredited laboratories to process DNA tests, guaranteeing that its results meet Federal accuracy and validity standards.
ClarityX believes in taking the guesswork out of your healthcare. We believe that one size does not fit all when it comes to your medication or treatments. Individualized personal medicine is the future of healthcare. ClarityX genetic testing empowers both patients and physicians. We deliver on that promise every day by helping patients with convenient, easily accessible in-home testing options.
