Our Naturopathic consultations where genetic testing is used are based on the science of Nutrigenomics and how our nutrition, exercise and lifestyle influence our genes. Scientific evidence tells us that our genes are not static, but in fact responsive to the choices we make, which impacts on how effectively they ‘express’ themselves. Gene expression is a way of explaining how we feel in terms of our wellbeing and how effectively our bodies function.
Based on a non-invasive saliva sample which is analysed and returned to us as a personalised genetic profile, we can take a holistic approach to address facets of your genetic profile that reveal what nutritional supplements will benefit you the most, the best choices of foods to consume and the type of exercise that will have a positive effect. This effectively eliminates any guesswork around what will work for you as the treatment plan is based on your own genetic profile.
We will guide you through improving your overall health and wellness with a long term plan within a series of consultations, ultimately seeing you through to a healthier state of physical and mental wellbeing.
We all have areas of our health and wellbeing that would like to address, such as:
- Weight loss
- Relief from joint pain
- Better sleeping patterns
- Regulation of hormone imbalances
- Healthier ageing
- Menopause balance
- Heart health
- Increased energy and vitality
- Blood pressure
These consultations take a holistic approach to your healthcare, and we can offer you a personalised and proactive approach to planning your treatment focusing on health and wellbeing matters that affect you, rather than a one size fits all approach.
The education around making healthier choices for yourself embedded within the program means maintenance of your new lifestyle and healthier choices is simplified and achievable for the long term.
There are also generational benefits for those yet to have children due to the positive epigenetic effects. That is, by enhancing the quality of your gene expression, your children will benefit from the results of your good choices.
