DNA Health Program

DNA health testing involves providing a sample of your DNA which is sent to a lab for analysis. Using the extensive report, we can predict your risk of developing certain diseases based on what gene variants are present in your code. Your gene test is designed to identify potential lifestyle diseases and to optimise your well-being and health by personalising your lifestyle and diet choices. The DNA Health test and all your background information assists us in establishing the optimal lifestyle choices necessary for good health, longevity and disease risk reduction. The gene results we look at show you 8 key areas of your health. These include the following biological processes which are linked to risk for diseases: Cholesterol metabolism, Bone health & risk for osteoporosis Methylation Inflammation Oxidative stress Detoxification Insulin sensitivity & risk for diabetes Food responsiveness including lactose intolerance, caffeine processing, salt sensitivity and blood pressure & Iron overload disordersVitamins such as D, A B12, B6 & folate

About

You no longer have to wonder about how to optimise your health. We will provide you with your own personal road map and manual you need to make decisions that will benefit you in the long run. Everyone has inherited genetic variations that increase or decrease your susceptibility to various health conditions. Our DNA Health testing pathway can help to reveal your genetic variations and risks. A DNA testing kit will also be sent out to you. The kit contains full instructions for you to provide a finger prick blood sample (for DNA) along with instructions and paper work for returning the sample to the laboratory for analysis.

The good news is, just because we see some genetic predispositions to disease it doesn't mean that these genes are going to play out and result in disease. This is the beauty of this type of Functional Medicine. With your test results and informed lifestyle plan, you have a say in how your life plays out. You will be asked to complete a pre participation questionnaire on our secure online medical platform ""Living Matrix"" This gives us the background and context to your health.

A DNA testing kit will also be sent out to you. The kit contains full instructions for you to provide a finger prick blood sample (for DNA) along with instructions and paper work for returning the sample to the laboratory for analysis. The analysis of your sample takes up to 4 weeks and whilst we are awaiting your results to come back your practitioner is reading through and working on your background notes. You may be contacted in this time to answer more questions about your health. A consultation date will be arranged in anticipation of the results.

You will have a 2 hour recorded Zoom consultation to discuss the results of the test. During the consultation your practitioner will discuss in detail your DNA test results in the context of the health and medical information you have previously provided. Key areas for action will be highlighted and explained. You will receive your 30 page DNA Health report. The report will include summary highlights in each key biological area. You will also receive an additional summary page written by your practitioner, highlighting key points discussed in the consultation. This may include additional actions, such as testing, dietary, lifestyle and nutrient supplementation. A video recording of your consultation and your report will be sent to you electronically.
