Could keep you healthy

There’s a noticeable shift towards personalized health care through preventative testing and integrative medicine. Tests such as genetic testing can help eliminate the trail-and-error method. Because everyone is unique in their own DNA way, the diet, exercise regime and supplements that work for one person might not work for another. Through genetic testing, we can side step the out dated method of trail-and-error and speed up results with gene specific guided interventions.

Can anyone have this test done?

Until recently, genetic testing was an expensive test that was only available to a select few. Fortunately this has changed, as technological advancements have made DNA testing more available to anyone that wants to understand their genetic makeup and how it effects their health. Through genetic testing, we are able to tell patients what exercise is right for them, what the most effective way of losing weight is, and even how to improve their physical and mental performance.

 Why should someone get genetic testing?

Everyone is unique in his or her own DNA way. The supplements and diet that works for one person might not work for another – and so, through genetic testing we can side-step the old method of trail-and –error, speed up results or even completely avoid the symptoms by acting preventatively. Up and above health and diet factors, genetic markers can be use to determine which diseases a patient is predisposed to and how to delay or prevent onset of such diseases.

What else will be assessed with my DNA test?

 Assessing your oxidative stress and detoxification path ways:

 Why should this be considered?

Anyone suffering from chronic fatigue or lack of vitality, muscle or joint pain, dementia or poor memory, depressed or

anxious mood, ADHD, has a family or personal history of cancer or cardiovascular

disease, suffer from allergies, indigestion, metabolic syndrome and symptoms of

premature ageing (amongst others), will benefit by knowing the level of oxidative stress (aka free radicals) their body are prone to produce due to daily environmental, physical stressors and toxin exposure. As well as how capable their body is in neutralizing these radicals and disposing the toxins. Managing oxidative stress and enhancing detoxification pathways according to your genetic predispositions, are by far the most effective way to improve your health and prevent development of chronic disease and counter act premature aging.

Food sensitivities

Many people suffers from food sensitivities like lactose or gluten intolerance as well as slow caffeine and or alcohol metabolism. Identifying these genetic tendencies can greatly help to guide you to make better choices in your diet and contributes to much improved health and energy.

Predisposition to stress and coping mechanisms

Why are some people more stressed out than others? Why do some of us tend to crave sugar or other substance or lean towards binge behavior (food, social media, television etc.) when we are stressed? Your DNA may explain as much. Our DNA regulates breaking down stress hormones and producing feel good hormones in response to emotional and physical stressors. Much can be done to counteract or improve the impact of these hormones once you know where the imbalance is.

Bone health

It is well known that our bone health and strength is much determined by our genetic predisposition interacting with lifestyle factors and nutritional intake. Bone loss accelerates as we age, knowing how to counteract this loss through appropriate lifestyle changes and other interventions will delay the onset of weakening bones and ensure us to stay strong physical active as we age.

What are the procedures?

 A swab is collected from your inner cheek (thus a non-invasive and painless procedure). The swab will be sent off for testing and you will be notified as soon as your DNA results and complete intervention report are ready. Because the data you receive from the test can really be life changing (yet only if you know what to do with that information). The data you receive back after analysis will be interpreted by a health care professional that can advise you on the necessary and specific lifestyle changes that needs to be made for optimal health and addressing specific concerns.
