A total approach including DNA profiling will ensure you make the optimal choices for YOU, not generic, not standard, but specific and unique advice based on your own DNA.

Knowing your genetic makeup helps you to understand how you deal and interact
with different foods, lifestyles, exercise, toxins and the environment.

What is Genetic / DNA testing?

Our DNA contains our genetic information and we have thousands of genes, each one containing a specific code on how to perform. Any variation or polymorphisms (known as SNPs, pronounced ‘snips’) can alter the function of a gene, maybe by increasing or decreasing it’s activity. As humans we are 99.9% genetically identical, but it is that 0.1% that makes us unique and gives us our distinct characteristics. Genetic testing identifies these variations and allows for personalised recommendations and advice, helping you to make the right decisions about your health and lifestyle.

A simple mouth swab is all that is needed for you to discover valuable information about yourself.

Types of genes:
  • Thrifty gene – linked to stress and the risk of weight gain, especially around the middle
  • Genes associated with insulin resistance and cardiovascular health
  • Some genetic variations are associated with hormonal imbalances, anxiety and low mood states
  • CYP genes that are associated with toxin and drug metabolization, shedding light on whether you are susceptible to the side effects of medications, and how effectively your body rids itself of caffeine and alcohol
  • Mutations in other genes can characterise themselves in premature aging and an increased risk cellular damage.

Genetic testing is only part of the picture, what has happened to you and your lifestyle also contributes to the picture
