While Naturopaths have long known that everyone is different, only recently have we been able to address an individual’s health needs according to their unique genetic profile.
DNA testing is a sophisticated investigative tool which identifies variations in chromosomes, genes and proteins, otherwise known as single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) through obtaining a non-invasive sample from the body.
DNA testing helps to highlight the inter-relationships between genes, nutrition and lifestyle. It can give you an idea of your physiological vulnerabilities and disease risks, so you can take important, targeted preventative steps to improve your health.
Always remember though, genes are only part of the equation. Diet, nutrition and lifestyle factors also play a substantial role in health. This is why we provide an initial 1.5 hour consultation as well as a follow up session, along with a personalised treatment plan that considers both your vulnerabilities and your current state of health.
