Personalized health care & genetic testing

genetic testing for individualized health and disease prevention

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’.

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.
