While your genetic make up doesn’t necessarily dictate who you are, it can have a profound impact on your mental and gut health as well as impact your ability to overcome food chemical intolerances. We analyse your genetic variant data and follow it up with comprehensive blood, urine and stool testing to see if specific ‘blocks’ are currently affecting your biochemistry.
We have a special interest in histamine, amine and salicylate intolerance.
Why should you do a gene test?
It helps you learn all about the role your genes play in any health problems you may be experiencing.
A gene test is a powerful tool for detecting a predisposition towards a wide range of conditions. While your genes are ‘fixed’ and do not change, many of them can be turned off by specific nutrients, diet and exercise. Knowing your genetic blue-print can empower you to make the best lifestyle choices to optimise your genetic expression for optimal health.
A simple, three-step process
Step 1: A simple saliva test is done, which captures all the genetic material required.
Step 2: That test enables a comprehensive and affordable gene report to be prepared.
Step 3: With the gene report, we then devise a personalised healthcare plan which focuses on nutritional, dietary and lifestyle guidance to optimise your health.
Your individual gene report covers/includes:
- Caffeine metabolism
- Mood and neurotransmitter balance
- MTHFR and methylation
- Gut health
- Cardiovascular health
- Coeliac disease
- Thyroid health
- Cellular health
- Antioxidant capacity
- Best type of exercise for your gene type
How to book your genetic report
Contact the clinic to make your initial nutrigenomic appointment.
Please note that you will need to order your own genetic kit online at www.23andme.com prior to your appointment.
It takes about 6 weeks to get the results back from 23andme. Once you’ve downloaded your raw data (your results), please contact the clinic directly and they will send you further instructions before your initial nutrigenomic consultation.
