Personalized health care & genetic testing
Everyone comes to this planet with their own unique footprint, their DNA. Everyone of us has some mutations, some minor, some major. Mutations might down- or upregulate certain enzymes in the body, including our capacity to metabolize hormones, neurotransmitters, and other essential substances. These make us more or less susceptible to certain chronic diseases such as cancer, Alzheimers, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Autism, Depression, early aging, and many more.
So what’s the point in testing your DNA if all is set at birth anyways?
You thought your genes determine your destiny? Think again. The newest cutting edge research suggests that only 5% is ‘set in stone’, and the rest is depending on ‘epigenetics’.
That means that environmental factors such as lifestyle, exposure to chemicals and nutrition can turn certain genes on or off, leading to health or disease. Putting our health and aging back into our own hands.
Nutrigenomics is the science of how certain nutrients can help regulate which of your genes are turned on or off, and the support of them.
This also means that if you know your own DNA footprint, you can make simply & individualized choices accordingly that help prevent chronic health conditions and slow down aging. You are in control of your DNA.
You are in charge of how you life your life, and get the keys to turning your health around at any point in time.
How does it work?
Order your test kit
Order your DNA test kit at 23andme.com or ancestry.co.uk
...they will send you a home test kit. Simply spit into a tube from the comfort of your own home and post back to their lab.
Once you have your results back, simply plug them into www.thefunctionalmedicineapp.com, a platform developed by Mirthe that analyses your 'raw data' genetics for personalised dietary, lifestyle and more specific health recommendations. All from the unique Functional Medicine perspective.
You can simply browse through The Functional Medicine App platform to explore your results yourself, or book a one-to-one consultation with Mirthe to discuss your results, including individual challenges and how to bypass and support your unique fingerprint for optimal longevity and quality of life.
The Functional Medicine App DNA analysis only checks for the genes that are currently scientifically proven to be clinically relevant and can be modified and supported through diet and lifestyle changes.
No doom and gloom, only empowerment.
Guidance for your future
You will further receive a list of 'predictive biomarkers' recommended for your individual genetic profile and risk factors, which you may choose to test (most can be found in normal blood tests, plus some optional urine, stool etc testing). This can help you assess if you are maybe currently doing everything just fine intuitively, or where you could optimise a little more to prevent running into trouble down the line.
Depending on your current health status and concerns, we might then go on and assess your current condition and formulate a personalised treatment in more detail with a Functional Medicine Consultation.
