Epigenetic researchers study how our genes react to our behaviour, and they found that just about everything we eat, think, breathe, or do, directly or indirectly, trickle down to our touch our genes and affect their performance in some way.
Your genetic predispositions can tell you a lot about yourself, including your health and wellbeing. We are all unique and your individual genetic profile can help you to optimise your wellbeing and use personalised nutrition and lifestyle to change how these genes would otherwise be expressed.
It’s important to understand that genes don’t determine disease on their own.
Genes function only by being activated or expressed, and nutrition plays a critical role in determining which genes (both good and bad) are expressed.
Everything from depression, cardiovascular disease, cancer, longevity, intelligence, autoimmune conditions to weight can be changed by our diet, lifestyle and environment.
By personalising your nutrition, you can empower yourself to understand underlying health risks and live a healthier life.
Having a tailored nutritional plan based on your results can help with weight management, improving athletic performance, supporting optimal training and recovery strategies and preventing cardiometabolic diseases, diabetes, osteoporosis, some cancers and other lifestyle diseases.
It is important to know that genetic testing should always be considered as part of a full Nutrition and Lifestyle consultation that takes into account your current diet and lifestyle. As qualified DNALife practitioners, we will interpret the results and create an accurate and bespoke Nutrition and Lifestyle Plan for you.
There are so many suppliers of DNA tests now that it is difficult to select the most reputable and best company to use. With our inside knowledge and practical experience, we will help you select the most appropriate test.
