Genetic testing has allowed nutrition to go a strep further in helping discover how each of us functions uniquely, where our strong and where our weak physiological points are. It shows us how our lifestyle, food and supplement choices impact our health directly. At Health in Motion I choose to work with two genetic tests, namely, 3×4 Genetic test and DNAlysis.
“The science behind 3×4 is based on extensive research, combined with clinical practice to ensure that every recommendation we make is both scientifically accurate and proven to work in clinical practice.”
The test is based on 3 key principles:
- A systems approach, looking at the body’s cellular pathways and functional physiological systems such as detoxification or inflammation.
- Going upstream, looking at where the problem started and not just treating the symptom.
- Making sustainable changes.
Your results are presented in an easy to understand and implement, which I will help you with, 4 tier report of your genetic blu print: Cellular Pathways, Physiological Systems (Brain health, Blood glucose and insulin, Sex hormone detoxification etc.), Energy (how your body responds to food) and lifestyle (endurance, power, injury risk etc.)
“The personalised medicine approach to healthcare that will allow for more precise, predictable and preventative healthcare that is customised for the individual patient.”
DNA Diet It provides additional insight into how each individual reacts to carbohydrates, saturated fats and intensity of exercise.
DNA Health is designed to optimise wellbeing and health, while establishing physiological pathways to focus on for good health, longevity and disease risk such as detoxification, inflammation, lipid blood glucose and insulin pathways etc.
DNA Oestrogen 80% of breast cancer occurs in women with no family history. Oestrogen gene testing may help you lessen your risk. Research has shown that an increased lifetime exposure to oestrogen is a strong risk factor in the development of breast cancer. DNA Oestrogen tests for gene variants that have been shown to have an impact on how oestrogen is processed in your body and if the processing of oestrogen and related compounds is efficient and healthy. It will also guide one in treating estrogenic symptoms such as PMS, endometriosis, menstrual issues and toxicity in terms of hormones, medications and chemicals.
DNA Sport examines various biological areas that impact training responsiveness and sporting performance. These include soft tissue remodeling, inflammation, blood flow and respiration, energy production and fuel metabolism.
Athletic success results firstly from personalising a training strategy that optimises your genetic potential, and secondly choosing the right lifestyle, nutrition and environmental interactions to optimally express your inherited genes.
