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
