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:
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.
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.
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
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
Inflammation profile– how to reduce pain and inflammation
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
