What is CarbChoice
A quick saliva sample will help identify the group of genes that are your unique building blocks to digesting starch carbohydrates.
CarbChoice provides accurate, affordable testing that empowers a patient to make science-based nutritional and lifestyle choices that are best suited to their unique genetic coding.
Gene testing is the future of functional medicine because it takes the guess work out of the best way to enhance our mind & body. The best dietary advice is the one that fits your personal needs – not based on the popular unscientific opinion from others.
Sometimes gluten-intolerance is mistaken for starch intolerant! Resulting in the inability to break down starchy foods well.
CarbChoice Testing removes the guess work, giving direction and guidance to new eating habits and diet, related to a major source of fuel – carbohydrates.
Timing, amount and ways to enhance starch digestion can be very useful in enabling enjoyment of favourite foods, while still having a long health expectancy (more important than life expectancy).
Sheridan Genrich, Naturopath & Nutritionist at Brisbane Livewell Clinic, likes to think of the work that she does is that of a ‘body detective’. Identifying underlying drivers of chronic health conditions early on, can help prevent further health complications in the future.
The one hour long appointment involves full history timeline, reviewing any lab tests you’ve already done, dietary review and a body systems assessment from a functional medicine perspective.
Sheridan can recommend dietary improvements or nutritional advice, recipes or herbal supplements at this time to get you started.
