Personalised wellness 

In fitness, health and wellbeing there is no such thing as “one size fits all”.

 

DNA testing offers new possibilities for long-term health, giving you a detailed understanding of your unique genetic make-up, and highlighting areas of concern. This enables you to make better lifestyle choices to mitigate these risks and choose healthier options FOR YOU!

As an accredited DNAlysis practitioner I'm now able to provide testing at my premises in Bryanston. Once your test report is generated I am also able to assist you with interpretation of the report and guidance in how to implement recommendations. Further options to consider include a personalised diet plan specific to your particular genetic make-up, and personal coaching (weekly or fortnightly) to support your journey to wellness.

 

Remember, 'every body' is different, so there's no better time than right now to find out more about YOUR body!

DNA Health is the foundation test offering unique insights into how your body responds, detailing how your genes contribute to your cellular health, and revealing your susceptibility to chronic disease. Your individual results and recommendations are detailed according to the following insights:

DNA Skin

Your skin is the largest organ of your body. This test offers value for anyone wanting to address skin concerns including elasticity, pigmentation, breakouts, accelerated ageing due to sun damage and pollution, and sensitive skin issues.

  • Pigmentation (melanin production/inflammation)

  • Breakouts (inflammation & sebum regulation)

  • Sensitivities (inflammation & moisture control)

DNA Resilience

For individuals looking to cope better under stressful or demanding conditions, this test can help you to enhance your mental, emotional and physical health. Considering the seven key molecular areas that most influence resilience, test results enable you to focus attention on results scoring “low” or “moderate” in order to improve your resilience. Report insights cover:

  • Neuropeptide Y

  • Oxytocin,

  • Brain derived neurotrophic factor

  • Stress axis

  • Norepinephrine

  • Dopamine

  • Serotonin

DNA Sport

For anyone wanting to improve their sporting performance, reduce their risk of injury and get the best results from training. It includes key training principles based on your genetics, and helps you establish your optimal cardio zones and peak training time. Test insights include:

  • Injury & Recovery

       Injury susceptibilityInflammation, Oxidative stress

DNA Active

Useful for elite athletes or weekend warriors, this test will support weight management, exercise responsiveness, nutrient requirements, and a host of other factors that will help you maximise your fitness potential, reach peak levels of conditioning and achieve your performance goals. Test insights include:

  • Exercise recommendations

  • Injury potential

  • Recovery

  • Endurance potential

  • Power potential

DNA Smile

Your oral health is strongly related to risk for development of chronic diseases, from cognitive decline to type 2 diabetes and heart disease. Test insights & recommendations cover:

  • Innate immunity

  • Inflammation & acquired immunity

  • Sweet tooth profile

DNA Risk

This test looks for genetic variations associated with higher risks for certain immune disorders and disease profiles. It is useful for individuals diagnosed, suspecting a diagnosis or with family history of an autoimmune condition. This report presents genetic data specific to:

  • Alopecia areata (AA)

  • Ankylosing spondylitis (AS)

  • Coeliac disease (CD)

  • Graves’ disease (GD)

  • Hashimoto thyroiditis (HT)

  • Idiopathic membranous nephropathy (IMN)

MEDcheck

Suitable for anyone using starting new medication, not responding to or experiencing side-effects from their medication. The benefits of the Medcheck test include:

  • Improving drug efficacy

  • Decreasing length of treatment time

  • Minimising adverse side effects

NOTE: BEFORE ORDERING PLEASE ENSURE THAT YOUR MEDICATION IS ON THE MEDCHECK LIST

DNA Pain

DNA Oestrogen

 

Suitable for women and men who suffer from oestrogen-dominant conditions or have higher lifetime exposure to oestrogens (ie. HRT, oestrogen-based contraceptives). Unbalanced oestrogen metabolism is a strong risk factor in the development of breast, ovarian and prostate cancer, as well as oestrogen dominant disorders. The test report helps you optimise oestrogen metabolism and assist in disease prevention through:

  • analysis of the genes involved in the process of oestrogen metabolism

  • recommendations for the appropriate diet, nutraceuticals and lifestyle choices for your genes

DNA GrowBaby

This is such a remarkable way to learn more about your health through your own DNA testing.  I always suggest the DNA Health, DNA Diet, DNA Oestrogen and DNA Sport tests.  Because it’s a blood spot test - and your results are retained - you can always add on more tests at a later stage. ~ Christine x
