Reach Your Genetic Potential
Every human being ever born is unique, even “identical twins”.
Our uniqueness is underpinned by our genes – they influence everything from our height and eye colour to predisposition to some chronic conditions and potential diseases states and potential diseases.
In addition, our genes determine our body’s response to the food we eat, physical activity and our lifestyle choices, and therefore can have a pronounced influence on our health.
Scientists worldwide are now realising the importance of understanding the interaction between our genes and our lifestyle choice, such as nutrition, exercise and our health.
A common misconception is that our “inherited genes” determine our fate in life. In fact, research has shown that this is not necessarily so.
It is true that you cannot change your “inherited genes” HOWEVER you can compensate for their influence.
It is possible to maximise our “genetic potential” and change our health by targeted exercise, nutritional and lifestyle choices.
The good news is that if you know your genetic profile and what gene variants you have, then you are armed with a very powerful tool for maximising your health potential.
When you know and understand your Personal Genetic Profile, you can make informed choices about your nutrition, lifestyle choices and the type of exercise that best suit your own genetic profile.
We do not inherit a disease state as such, but rather we inherit a set of susceptibility factors to environmental influences that modify the risk of developing a disease or imbalance in the body.
These environmental influences may include cigarette smoke, air pollution, excessive alcohol consumption, poor diet, sun exposure, bacterial infection, chronic nutrient deficiencies, hormone imbalances, lifestyle habits and toxic exposure.
Personalised genetic profile testing focuses on individual risk profiles, including specific nutritional or natural medicine requirements, in combination with traditional risk factors and the familial medical history.
The knowledge of genetic factors makes preventative medicine easier.
New scientific technologies backed by extensive medical research now make it possible to test genes that directly influence our fitness, health and nutrition.
As a result it is possible to determine your personal genetic profile and improve your potential for healthy living by simply adjusting your nutrition, exercise and lifestyle choices to suit your unique set of genes.
The body can repair DNA damage and improve the functioning of our genes by making the right nutritional and lifestyle choices.
We will tell you, based on current evidence, what to do to maximise your health.
