Integrating Genomic Medicine with the Whole Person
Individualized Functional and Genomic Medicine
Vital Health and Natural Medicine uses a revolutionary, creative, all-encompassing model for health and wellness, integrating these seven elements critical to health and wellness:
Genes, Environment, Nutrition, Emotions, Stress, Inflammation, and Spirituality.
This is the VITAL HEALTH Personalized Health Model. We have used it for the last 15 years with thousands of people. With the advent of genomic testing in 2001, we incorporated Nutritional Genomics to enhance the VITAL HEALTH Personalized Health Model. Over the past 15 years, we have helped many individuals achieve optimal health in both clinical practice as well as in corporate wellness using this unique whole person approach.
Experience the power of the VITAL HEALTH Personalized Health Model today to create your own personalized blueprint for health and longevity.
Genomic wellness testing will take the guess work out of what to eat, to what supplements to take!
Are you eating the right foods for your individual genetic profile? Are you taking supplements not knowing if they are what you need?
Unlock Your Genetic Potential
DNA testing is surprisingly simple these days – it only takes a saliva swab to unlock many of codes that inform your biological make-up. Your genes will thrive or suffer according to your lifestyle. They are highly personalised, so it’s not enough to say, “illness x runs in my family.” The fact is – genetic variation is considerable.
Genetic profile specialists, Domenic Pisanelli, can maximise your health, by testing to see which genes are turned on or off by your current lifestyle, and how that affects your overall health. That is, certain foods, lifestyle choices, even your emotional well-being, will affect which genes “express” and which don’t.
Synchronising our unique DNA blueprint with our diet and lifestyle, known as nutrigenomics, is the key to the exciting new realm of personalised wellness medicine.
How Genes Can be Switched On + Off
Most people understand that our genes support our uniqueness – they influence everything from the colour of our eyes and our height, to the predisposition to chronic disease. However, science now confirms that our genes interact with our lifestyle choices, such as nutrition, exercise and environmental exposures.
To understand more about your genes, it is important to know that our unique genetic make-up, which is what we are born with, is like our hard drive – and represents our health potential for life. To function optimally in our environment, our genes have ‘epigenomes’, which are parts of our genes that interact with the environment and causes our genes to be ‘triggered’ – otherwise known as ‘epigenetics’ or our software. Therefore, the expression of our DNA is actually controlled by signals from outside each cell – which primarily come from our diet, lifestyle and environmental exposures.
Your genes may load the ‘gun’, but it is your diet, lifestyle, stress and other environmental exposures that pull the ‘trigger’ that causes disease and premature ageing…
By matching your diet+lifestyle to your unique genetic make up you can optimise your body to:
Know how your body works and make informed lifestyle choices to fine-tune your genetic expression
Prevent and reduce the risk of chronic diseases, as well as treat existing health problems
Improve your energy levels and concentration
Know what diet will optimise the health of your genes
Know exactly which supplements will help your body function at it’s very best
Exactly which weight reduction or maintenance strategy will work best for you
Personalised Wellness Medicine is here…now!
Personalised wellness medicine is the future of healthcare and you can experience it now!
A one-size-fits-all approach to diet, lifestyle or healthcare no longer makes sense in light of epigenetics – the study of how we can learn to ‘talk’ to our unique genes through the ‘language’ of diet, nutrition and exercise.
Every living organism, including human beings, is the product of their genes and the way that their genes interact with their environment.
Put simply – your genes, your environment and your lifestyle are the essential components of a healthy life, and we now know that just because you might have a genetic tendency to something – it does not have to mean that those genes will be switched on, once you know how to manage your individual genetic make-up.
Diet plays a pivotal role in regulating healthy gene expression, and we know that:
A gene appropriate diet can reduce our disease risk factors
Nutritional components can turn our genes “on or off” altering how our gene is expressed
Dietary requirements are unique for each of us and must be matched to our genetic profile (not one-size-fits-all)
Gene variations and diet regulated genes can modify the onset and severity of disease
Personalised nutrition matched to your genes can prevent, reduce and cure disease
In a recent study, a combination of improved nutrition, moderate exercise, stress management techniques, and increased social support caused the expression of over 500 genes to be changed in only 3 months – facilitating disease-preventing disease and inhibiting the effects of genes that promote heart disease, cancer, inflammation and oxidative stress
When your body is healthy and has access to all the nutrients it genetically needs, research shows that you typically:
Slow down the rate of ageing
Achieve a higher quality of life and vitality
Think more clearly
Feel less stressed
Reduce the risk of disease and other health problems
Genetic testing helps to give you the control of your genes and your current and future health.
What Will This Analysis Do For Me?
You will know where your potential genetic weaknesses are, so you can put preventative strategies into place
You will have a personalised dietary program designed especially for you and your genes
It will identify how you metabolise and your tendency to weight gain
You will be able to better manage your weight by understanding your specific dietary and exercise needs
It will identify how well your body can detoxify and your individual tolerance of substances such as caffeine and alcohol
It will identify how your body responds to inflammation, which is related to various chronic diseases
It can identify your risk of osteoporosis and what your body needs to prevent it
It will enable your practitioner to advise you on specific preventative health strategies to improve your long term health
Our goal is to help you to reach your health potential and live the healthiest life possible, while helping you to reduce the risk of many of the most common health issues that affect us through life and as we age…
Smart DNA Profiling Panels Tested
Weight loss profile– learn why you may be struggling with your weight and how to unlock your body’s secrets to weight loss
Sports & Exercise profile– what exercise is best for your body, such as endurance or sprint and power, and are you more prone to muscle pain after exercise
Lipid (cholesterol) profile– knowing your genetic profile enables an individual nutrition and diet program to help control your cholesterol
High blood pressure risk– how to better manage blood pressure
Liver detoxification capacity– how your body deals with toxins and substances such as caffeine, medications, heavy metals, hormones
Anti-ageing profiling– to help you slow the rate of ageing

Diabetes profile– know your risk and how to prevent it
Bone health– risk/prevention of osteoporosis
Oestrogenic profile– your ability to deal with oestrogens
Lactose intolerance risk
Coeliac disease risk
Specific nutrient needs – you may need specific nutrients based on your genes for example, Omega-3s, vitamin B2, B12, Vitamin C, Folate, Vitamin D, Vitamin E
Nutrigenomic (gene appropriate diet) profile – what nutrients and diet is best for your genes
Methylation profile– a very important profile to check for preconception, autism, ADHA, Alzheimer’s, stroke and cardiovascular disease risk
Physiogenomic profile– risk factors for brain and mood health are covered in this panel plus how you’re wired to deal with stress, and change in the season
Some Nutrigenomic facts:
The Mediterranean diet is prescribed widely but is not suitable for all genetic types (in some gene types it can increase bad (LDL) cholesterol
Some genotypes are best suited to resistance exercise, rather than aerobic exercise – which can have a huge influence on their metabolism and weight-loss
Gene testing will tell which individuals with high blood pressure are sensitive to salt intake and who is not
What Gene testing will not do:
It will not predict the risk of diseases such as cancer
It will not identify disease causing changes in genes
A simple once-only saliva test that will change the course of your life…
