Your DNA and your diet

Did you know that your nutrition and lifestyle affect how your genes work?

If you test for certain genes you can determine if you are at risk for certain health conditions such as heart disease, cancers, inflammatory conditions, mental disorders, food sensitivities and obesity. But that is not the end of it. You can then lower this risk through dietary and lifestyle changes.
Yes- these genes can then be switched off or on by changing your lifestyle! 

The test is a simple cheek swab or a dry blood sample (finger-prick). 

If you would like to consult online, we can arrange for the DNA test kit to be sent to you. Otherwise the test can be done at the practice.

Once we have the results we will design a lifestyle intervention plan to meet your specific requirements. This feedback is given in a 60 minute feedback session which can be done online or at the rooms. 

Costs: 

R4480- includes the DNA Core test plus a 1 hour health and lifestyle assessment. The information gained in the assessment will assist in determining which DNA tests should be done.  

R1025- feedback session to discuss results and your diet plan and lifestyle recommendations.
