Genetic Testing

Wellness Vision, Newcastle

Genetic testing allows us to further personalise your wellness plan!

Your treatment plan can be based on your unique genetic profile. Genetic testing is the science of Nutrigenomics, which studies how your genes are influenced by your nutrition, exercise and lifestyle.

Empowering Results

Nutritional genetic testing (or Nutrigenomics) will arm you with the knowledge needed to encourage the best possible ‘expression’ of your genes, through knowing which dietary and lifestyle choices best suit your body. Although our genes do not change throughout our life, scientific evidence tells us that our genes are not static, but are in fact responsive to the choices we make, which impacts on how effectively they ‘express’ themselves. Gene expression can affect how we feel in terms of our well-being and how effectively our bodies function.

Results Never Change – so you only need to do genetic testing once!

The information you gain will tell you which dietary and lifestyle choices have been linked to poorer health outcomes in others with each specific gene variation.

This is information will be beneficial to you throughout your life, as your genes do not change.

How does the test work?

The test requires a non-invasive cheek swab, which is analysed in a specialised laboratory and returned to your practitioner as a personalised genetic profile. Using this information we are then able to improve our holistic approach to your treatment.

How long for results?

It generally takes about four weeks to get your results. Jasmin will help you understand how your genetic variations may be contributing to your current health concerns, but comparing your genetic test results with your current pathology and biological markers.

How much does the test cost?

Testing prices vary depending on the the number of genetic markers we test for.
