Your genes are not necessarily your destiny, but merely your tendency.
Genetic testing and nutrigenomics are the future of personalised healthcare.
Why? Because we’re all different and therefore our individual needs are different. One way of eating could be perfect for me but completely wrong for you and your genetic make-up.
This is because your genes hold the code for what makes you, you!
It’s your DNA that contains the information for making all the proteins that make the body function.
It’s the instruction manual for your body to enable you to move, breathe, think and live.
The good thing about DNA testing is that you only ever have to do it once because your genes never change, only the expression of those genes can change.
So, what does the test involve?
It’s a simple, non-invasive mouth swab that you can do in the comfort of your own home and it only takes a couple of minutes to do. The sample is then sent to the lab for analysis.
3 to 4 weeks later I receive the results and we can arrange a time that suits you so that we can go through the report.
What’s included in the package?
✔ The test kit
✔ The lab analysis
✔ A detailed report
✔ 1 hour consultation to go through your results and discuss diet and lifestyle based on the results.
✔ 2 x half hour follow ups to help you stay on track with any lifestyle and nutrition plans we discuss.
The whole package is £369
How can DNA testing benefit you?
Genetic testing isn’t a diagnostic test for a specific disease, but through testing we can determine susceptibility towards certain health conditions.
Knowing your genetic code can enable you to take charge of your health by understanding and minimising your risk factors.
The things you eat, think and do can affect you genes, either in a positive manner or negative.
Nutrigenomics is the study of the effects of foods on gene expression.
Implementing a personalised nutrition and lifestyle plan based on your genotype is a way of giving you a strong foundation on which to optimise your health. Having your genetic blueprint can take the guess work out of health which means you can make positive changes that can last a lifetime.
Through this highly comprehensive test, we’ll look at your genetic predisposition for fat sensitivity and over absorption, fat release ability, food cravings, sugar metabolism and muscle function for exercise.
As well as this, we will also look at the main genetic variants in genes that regulate the methylation cycle, detoxification, inflammation and oxidation potential, caffeine sensitivity, lactose intolerance and iron over-absorption.
