WHAT CAN I DO TODAY TO CHANGE MY TOMORROW?
This question has been the driving factor behind ongoing research into genetic testing and its many applications. We live in a world that now believes in prevention ahead of cure, and genetic testing gives us the tools we need to safeguard our vitality by implementing subtle (and sometimes substantial) lifestyle changes. Life experiences have shown us that our reaction to certain foods, medication and diets, differ quite substantially in comparison to our friends and family, and this is likely due to our differences in our genetic makeup and their interaction with the environment. One size does not fit all! Human are 99.5% the same, and that 0.5% can make a difference.
Our genes and their expression can influence:
- Nutrient deficiencies or excesses
- Dietary components
- Vitamin D and B levels
- Toxin detoxification
- Exercise and Activity
- Alcohol and drugs metabolism
- Circadian rhythms.
By testing your DNA expression you can:
- Choose effective lifestyle interventions such as a change in diet and/or taking supplement
- Know which diseases you are predisposed to, e.g. cholesterol, type II diabete
- Learn of current conditions you may have, e.g. lactose intoleranc
- Find out more about your athletic potential.
- Be warned of addictive behavioural traits, etc.
At Transform Your Health Network our qualified dieticians offer nutrigenetic testing.
How do you extract the DNA?
With the use of a cheek swab, also known as a buccal swab. It can also be done using whole blood, but the swab is sufficient to supply us with DNA cells and can easily be done in the comfort of your own home.
What can I expect once you’ve analysed my DNA?
A comprehensive health and wellness report, along with a precision nutrition plan, tailored to your genetic needs, enabling you to manage and develop your lifestyle that will be effective in reducing your health risks.
Nutrigenetic screening tests can cover the following areas depending which company is used:
- Cholesterol and lipid metabolism

Although we cannot change our genes, we can control their expression, which is strongly influenced by our environment. Therefore by making minor adjustments to your lifestyle now, you will be able to lower the risk of certain diseases and live healthier.
If you knew your predisposition to common diseases, such as obesity and heart disease, today, would you change your lifestyle to ensure your health and wellbeing tomorrow?
