A personalized approach to wellness
MAGISNAT’s approach to wellness focuses on tailored dietary supplementation and lifestyle interventions based on an individual’s biological characteristics. OMICS tests, such as genomics, metabolomics and proteomics determine these characteristics.
The OMICS Machine model provides personalized recommendations for optimizing nutrition, physical activity and dietary supplements.*
During the scientific meeting, MAGISNAT unveiled five innovative patents that address key health challenges, including:
• OMICS Machine: A model that integrates multi-omics data to build a map of the major molecular pathways in the human body. The model can optimize and personalize lifestyle, dietary supplementation and physical activity.
• Genetic Mechanism for Lipedema Prevention: AKR1C1, a steroid metabolizing enzyme, has been identified as a key factor in lipedema susceptibility. Using bioinformatics, MAGISNAT has developed small molecules to compete with hormones introduced in the diet, preventing the onset of lipedema.
• Modulation of Adipose Tissue Growth and Inflammation: In vitro and metabolomics studies have identified sodium cromoglycate, a molecule capable of modulating mast cell activity, as a potential treatment for lipedema.
• Amino Acid Ratios for Appetite Regulation: Specific amino acid ratios have been shown to play a crucial role in appetite regulation. MAGISNAT’s patented approach utilizes these amino acids to modulate appetite.
• Natural Approach to Oral Mucositis Prevention and Treatment: A patented gel composition, that includes Lactobacillus reuteri, a beneficial bacterium naturally found in the oral cavity during early life but present in only 1% of adults. This bacterium serves as a natural approach for preventing and treating oral mucositis.
Advancing wellness through science
MAGISNAT uses OMICS techniques to examine the body’s natural processes that sustain balanced health. The focus is on understanding the complex molecular pathways in the human body and investigating natural, alternative ways to restore balance.
The recent scientific meeting underscores MAGISNAT’s commitment to scientific innovation and improving individual well-being with personalized solutions.
MAGISNAT’s patents represent significant progress in understanding the human body and developing tailored interventions that support overall health without relying on traditional methods.

Personalized Medicine Finding The Root Cause of Symptoms
Elite Personalized Medicine’s typical patient is usually someone who has symptoms that their primary physician or physician specialist can’t seem to resolve. Labs and other tests have come back “fine”, yet they feel something still isn’t quite right. There are still unexplained symptoms.
Patients often find Elite Personalized Medicine when they do not get answers or justification for their symptoms. This is what makes Elite Personalized Medicine different. EPM performs much more extensive testing to find the root cause of concern.
Personalized is part of the name for a reason — there are no one-size-fits all treatments. Every treatment plan is created for that specific individual.
For example, if a patient feels there may be thyroid issues, the center will run tests for the entire thyroid — how it is working and if it is a potential cause for unexplained symptoms. It is the same with sex hormones. EPM will take a detailed look at a patient’s testosterone, estrogen, and progesterone levels. Thyroid and sex hormones are a just a small part of the comprehensive lab panel each new patient has drawn before their first visit.
EPM can often find, diagnose and help manage treatment for unexplained weight gain, hypo-thyroidism, Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, menopausal symptoms, low testosterone for men, brain fog and chronic fatigue — just to name a few. And it is always done with a personalized touch.
A recent patient review reads:
“The doctor I spoke with was very knowledgeable and so down to earth. She never made me feel bad about myself, and I didn’t feel like just a number.”
Elite Personalized Medicine approach
The time and attention given to each patient is a standard but crucial part of EPM’s approach — as equally important as the detailed bloodwork required prior to your first visit. Initial bloodwork includes sex hormones, a full thyroid panel, blood sugar response, inflammatory markers, vitamin deficiencies and all of the standard cardiometabolic markers.
Once bloodwork is completed, the patient will be scheduled for a 60-minute, one-on-one visit with a medical provider. EPM will also require the patient to fill out an extensive medical health history. This will probably be the most personalized medical questionnaire many have experienced. Questions are centered around sleep hygiene, stress load, personal circumstances, sexual health, G.I. health and regularity, diet and exercise, symptoms, goals, etc.
During the initial 60-minute visit, the patient will see that Elite Personalized Medicine listens
to their concerns and uses their health history, goals and questions to devise a customized treatment plan based on very specific needs. The longer visits allow time for more information gathering and all patient questions to be answered.
According to the National Institutes of Health, primary care physicians spend an average of 17.4 minutes with patients. Insurance companies dictate the practice of medicine, ordering medically necessary labs and the length of medical visits. These guidelines are based on insurance reimbursement. EPM operates outside of this model of medicine.
While traditional medical practices may aim to keep patients on the positive side of major medical health issues, Elite Personalized Medicine aims to get patients to optimal health. This may explain the difference in length of visits.
Preventative care and customized treatment
EPM focuses on preventative care by educating patients about early detection of disease. When preventative care is practiced properly, patients can avoid long term disease conditions. Often times EPM’s suggestions are easily implemented and patients can limit their risk of disease.
According to projections from the National Institutes of Health, the prevalence of type II diabetes will increase by 54% to more than 54.9 million Americans between 2015 and 2030.
EPM alerts patients more preventatively about the risk of type II diabetes and where to make lifestyle adjustments to help pre-vent development of disease. Staff aims to inform patients before it becomes a problem.
What might be included on a patient’s treatment plan following a visit? Natural vitamins, nutraceuticals, dietary/ lifestyle changes, and/or medications needs. Further lab testing may be suggested based on the patient’s lab work or symptoms presented. The cadence of follow up visits is personalized to each individual’s needs.
EPM is a multidisciplinary office that suggests treatment such as functional medicine medical visits, chiropractic care, weight loss, hormone re-placement therapy, IV nutrition, IM injections and health coaching. Part of EPM’s options include chiropractic care. Dr. Lee Strickland has been a chiropractor in the Norcross area for 30 years and has helped countless patients with back pain, neck pain, chronic stress fractures, sciatica, headaches/migraines, and even pregnancy.
Elite Personalized Medicine isn’t looking to replace a patient’s primary doctor. The goal is to work together for the benefit of the patient.
How do I get started?
Typically, a patient will send in a “contact us” submission form through the website or call the of-fice directly to get further informa-tion or schedule an appointment. EPM looks forward to helping patients get questions answered and assisting to achieve optimal health.
Relieve bone, muscle and joint pain with non-invasive, hands-on chiropractic treatments.
Functional medicine identifies the root causes of disease and treats them rather than simply treating symptoms of illness.
Hormone Replacement Therapy
Fix hormone imbalances in both women and men to slow down aging, combat fatigue and improve the libido.
IV Nutrition and IV Hydration
Receive a quick energy boost of essential vitamins, minerals and nutrients with the IV infusion or IV injection therapy.
Personalized health coaching improves overall wellness, develops healthy habits and achieves goals.
Customized weight loss planning and fitness programs are sustainable for long-term success.

Every Patient is Family at Innovative Smiles
Perhaps the first thing you’ll notice at Innovative Smiles at The Forum is that patients are treated like family.
“We’ve been here in this location for 17 and a half years at The Forum,” said owner Dr. Philip Talley. “I live in this area. I go to church in this area at Peachtree Corners Baptist Church. We always say, ‘Welcome to our dental family.’”
A personal approach to dental care
Establishing a personal relationship with the patient is an essential part of treatment. Down-home care combined with state-of-the-art technology and up-to-the-minute techniques make for a winning combination.
“That’s our biggest thing—let’s get to know you and find out what’s important to you when it comes to choosing dental treatment,” he said.
“This is not a dental clinic. You’re not just a number. We want to call you by your name. We want to know when your birthdays are. We want to know what events are going on in your life. Because sometimes, we have to work around those events, or they might even be one of the reasons you came in,” Talley explained.
The practice prides itself on knowing its patients and being able to educate and clear up misinformation without any gimmicks or unnecessary therapies that have nothing to do with dentistry.
“We’re not doing paraffin wax or giving you massages, but we are checking up on you,” said Dr. Talley.
“When I take a tooth out or if I do a root canal, I’m calling you at home and seeing how you’re doing. … We’re not doing that other over-the-top stuff. But we are trying to do extraordinary things with ordinary procedures,” he affirmed. “We want to go over the top with our customer service because nowadays, many things are automated.”
Putting patients first
Dr. Talley and his staff keep up with the latest trends and often find themselves correcting online research that hasn’t come from reputable sources.
“Not everything that you get online is beneficial for you. And not all of it’s customized for you,” he said.
“We have the patient’s best interests at heart, and we’re not trying to sell you something you don’t need. We want to do what’s best for you long term because the best dentistry is the least amount of dentistry,” he explained.
He added that preventative maintenance pays off in fewer dollars and less pain.
“If we can keep you out of my chair, that’s the best. Unfortunately, most people only come in when there’s a problem, and once it’s hurting, it’s usually a little bit more costly, and dentistry doesn’t get cheaper if you ignore the problem,” he commented.
While much of his knowledge comes from constant training and keeping up with what’s happening in the field, Dr. Talley’s initial experience was working as a dentist during his stint in the Navy.
From a military career to a private practice
“I’m from Arkansas, so I went to a small Methodist school in Arkansas called Hendrix College,” said Dr. Talley.
After that, he attended Meharry Medical College in Nashville. Then came the Navy.
“I was a Navy dentist and did my residency in the Navy in Virginia Beach. And then I was in Japan for two years on a ship,” he said. “Working on Marines and Navy Seals and that whole group is very different from here at a private practice.”
One of the biggest advantages of being a military doctor is that no procedure was “out-of-network” or unapproved by an insurance company.
“There are no restrictions on what you need to do for somebody because money and insurance are not a question. So, whatever they have, you can work on it. You get a lot of good experience. And you get to work with a lot of good technology,” said Dr. Talley.
“I got to put my hands on a couple of things that I probably wouldn’t have been able to do if I went to a private practice at the time, and then just couldn’t afford that piece of equipment,” he added.
His last assignment in the Navy was at Kings Bay Naval Base in St. Marys, GA. His best friend in dental school was from Atlanta and convinced him to try the area.
As luck would have it, a patient realized he’d be good son-in-law material and introduced him to her daughter.
“And three kids later, here we are,” he said, adding that his kids often help around the office and are active in sports and other extra-curricular activities in local schools.
Oral health relates to overall health
Through the years, Dr. Talley has honed his skills, driving the point home that all health leads back to the mouth.
“Everything that’s happened in your mouth is connected to the other parts of your body,” he said. “So, if you have high blood pressure or diabetes and you have infections in your mouth, they work hand in hand.”
For example, someone with clogged arteries probably suffers from a lot of plaque build-up on their teeth.
“That same calcium or tartar can go through your blood vessels, and it can harden your blood vessels. That’s why it’s related to high blood pressure and heart disease. And when it comes to infection, it doesn’t just stay in your mouth—everything’s connected from your head to your toes,” he explained.
So, if patients grumble about filling out a form for their entire medical history, to get their teeth cleaned, there’s a good reason for it.
“We have advanced cancer screening that we can do where we often catch things early. And, when it comes to more prevention, we talk about brush techniques, floss techniques and things like a Waterpik for people who don’t like to floss,” said Dr. Talley.
Meeting people where they are is a cornerstone of Innovative Smiles’ approach to dentistry.
