Genetic Profiling & Nutrigenomics

Banner_-_DNA_1600x600

What & is it?

Genetic profiling looks at your building blocks and your body’s ability to function. It can direct you to areas of your health that may need some attention for you to function to your full potential.

Your genes will be tested for:

  • Weight loss
  • Exercise
  • Lipid metabolism
  • High blood pressure
  • Inflammation
  • Diabetes
  • Anti-aging
  • Liver detoxification
  • Detoxification of oestrogens
  • Oxidative stress
  • Bone health
  • Lactose intolerance
  • Nutrigenomics

How does it work?

The test is a once only simple saliva test. You are given a kit, spit into the tube and send it off for analysis, it’s as simple as that! Your results will be sent to Energie Natural Health where a practitioner goes through them in detail with you.

Why do it?

Studies have shown that improving nutrition, moderate exercise and stress management techniques can change gene expression. Disease preventing genes can be “turned on” and genes that promote diseases like heart disease, cancer, inflammation and oxidative stress can be “turned off”. Therefore we have the ability to influence these genes.

What is Nutrigenomics?

Nutrigenomics is the study by which food and nutrition affects genetic expression. The concept is that genes are switched on or off through certain nutrients available through our diet.

By getting your profile done, it can be identified which genes are strong and weak and which diseases you may be susceptible to. Nutrigenomics can then be used to change those genes so that you age more slowly, decrease your chance of getting a disease you are susceptible to and improve your overall quality of life.
