SAN DIEGO, June 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Today marks the availability of ph360, the only personalized health platform based on scientific calculations of gene expression. Like a user manual for the body, the ph360 platform analyzes each person's physical traits, health history, environment, lifestyle and ancestry to provide a personalized health and wellness program.

After completing a simple yet comprehensive online health assessment, each person receives tailored nutrition, exercise and lifestyle information and recommendations that fit their specific health needs. Built on more than 10 years of medical research and with over 10,000 clients involved in the development of the integrated platform, ph360 helps individuals experience a complete view of their health and wellness. Many people working with the ph360 program have found they can lose weight more easily and are seeing their body shape change within weeks.

"ph360 offers a revolutionary look at personal health and enables individuals to easily follow customized guidance for their health and well-being," said Lena Cheng, M.D., advisory board member of ph360. "As an internist, I've seen first-hand the impact digital platforms can have on transforming health in scalable, quantifiable ways. I'm excited to be part of ph360's focus on preventative health."

ph360's back-end technology was built by a team of international physicians and technologists who developed an advanced algorithm that integrates research from physiology, endocrinology, neurology, anthropometry, phenotypology and epigenetics into a user-friendly health tool that is easy and accessible for anyone to use. Unlike other health analysis tools that only measure a blood type, body type, or genetic predisposition to disease, ph360 reviews family and personal health history, environment and lifestyle choices to explain a person's physical structure, behavior, general attitude and response to food and exercise that change over time. ph360 is also non-invasive, and does not require a blood or genetic sample.

"We are thrilled to introduce ph360 to the world. I first started searching for solutions when I was diagnosed with a terminal illness. Determined to survive, I've worked with top scientists and physicians from around the globe to develop this personal health tool and help empower anyone to be proactive with their health," said Matt Riemann, founder and chief executive officer of ph360. "ph360 shifts the focus from healthcare to health, and the in-built principles of prevention and sustainability help to lay a solid foundation as we collectively work towards the elimination of chronic disease over the coming generations."
