You can find out what your genes are telling you about the underlying causes of your chronic health issues like depression, fatigue, stress related problems, obesity, high blood pressure, anxiety and concentration issues by testing your saliva in a DNA-test. Knowing this information is only useful when you can act on it to change your health for the better.
There are many companies that offer genetic testing these days but I chose to work with DNAlife by Nordic labs. DNAlife executes a conservatism on the amount of insight on genetic variations they offer. They only offer the genetic variations to your DNA where research has shown that they can be influenced by environmental factors like diet and lifestyle.
When can genetic testing be useful?
- When you have concerns around family history of chronic diseases of lifestyle
- To bring focus to the quest in finding the underlying causes of your chronic health issues. It provides information on important biochemical processes like how you methylate, how your fat metabolism works and how you detoxify.
- When you want to improve general health and wellbeing it shows you where to focus on.
You can choose from different types of DNA tests that focus on specific areas:
DNA Health, DNAmind, DNAoestrogen, DNAsport, DNAskin, DNAdiet
In the context of a consultation I can advice you if and which type of DNA-test can be useful.
It can help identify key biochemical areas that may need support and target therapy as part of an individual diet and lifestyle plan.
