Nutrigenetic Testing eliminates the guesswork

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

Genetic testing 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 saliva sample, 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. You will receive a 100page colour-coded PDF document, which Jasmin will discuss with you and point out the biochemical pathways that require more support. She does this by comparing your genetic test results with your current pathology results and biological markers.

How much does the test cost?

The test, including Jasmin’s analysis, costs $495 and tests for 100 different gene variations (or Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms / SNPs) related to nutrition, diet and lifestyle, so you are empowered by your results. 

Your genetic profile will reveal:

  • The best choices of foods to consume (as well as the ones that aren’t so good)
  • The nutritional supplements that will benefit you the most
  • The types of exercise that will have the most positive effect
  • Possible issues in absorbing or assimilating specific nutrients, including Vitamin D (the sunshine vitamin)
  • Areas that may require a greater level of support – such as specific biochemical pathways relating to inflammation, detoxification, nutrient absorption, hormonal regulation etc. Jasmin will simplify your results and interpret what they mean for your specific needs.

This effectively eliminates most of the guesswork in determining the best treatment approach for you.
