ABOUT

"Recent research has found that, in the US, Australia and the UK, dietitians have a low level of knowledge of genetics and nutritional genomics. They also have low levels of confidence in these areas and current levels of involvement are also low (Collins et al 2013). Further investigation is required to find out why this is the case."

For Practitioners


 

Our mission is to aid Practitioners and Health Care Providers by equipping them with tools  that will allow them to take a bio-individual approach to their patients' treatment by using Clinical Nutrigenomics. This can be achieved by gaining an insight into the status of their genes, on the level of Single Nucleotides. This can help in identification of predispositions to certain conditions. When matched against symptom  that patients are suffering from and their history, the Genetic Variant Report may  help to narrow down the spectrum of  further lab testing needed to be performed, to specific markers which may have a direct impact on the symptoms your patients are experiencing. One rule we would ask you to remember however, is to treat the patient in front of you, not  just their genetic SNP's.


For Clients


 

We are all about empowering you, in knowledge about your body's biochemistry - right down to the level of your genetics, and encouraging you to take a proactive approach to  improving your wellbeing. This can be accomplished by applying lifestyle  changes  and reducing  exposure to environmental factors, that may contribute to, or cause your unfavourable genetic variants to start expressing themselves, causing a decline in your health as a result.

 

Remember however, that our services related to genetic testing on their own, are not in any way designed to give you any diagnosis or medical advice. We ask therefore that you always work with your practitioner or health care provider. Never self diagnose and never self medicate (that includes supplementation). We are more than happy to put you in touch with one of the practitioners listed on our  database.
