DNA and genomic testing are currently gaining importance as an integral part of modern science and medicine. Understanding our genetics means understanding the basis of our unique biology. Genomic testing enables us to counsel our clients according to their unique genetic profile. The test results help optimize your diet to your genes in order to reduce your risk of certain health conditions and diseases. Each gene tested is significantly involved in the way your body processes, or metabolizes a certain nutrient or dietary component. With that information, we know which foods and nutrients your body needs more – or less. This will then help you in preventing chronic diseases such as cancer, heart disease, stroke and type 2 diabetes.
Programs tailored to an individuals DNA have proven to be much more effective than generic programs. A recent study published by the European Society of Human Genetics found that dieters employing weight management programs tailored to the individual’s genome lost up to 33% more weight than those following standard, “one size fits all” weight loss programs. With the latest genomic technology, any health management program that does not take an individual’s genetic profile into account is simply guesswork. At Bodyology we will test a range of panels through Genomes to Bloodwork, and construct a Nutritional plan specific to each patient.
