How to Get a Truly Personalised Health and Wellbeing Plan
The Fitgenes program is based on the science of Nutrigenomics, which simply means how our genes are influenced by our nutrition, exercise and lifestyle. Scientific evidence now tells us that our genes are not static i.e. we do not have to be destined to develop a disease just because our other family members did or we have an established weakness in that area.
We now know that genes are responsive to the diet and lifestyle choices we make, which impacts on how effectively they ‘express’ themselves. Gene expression is a way of explaining our level of wellbeing and how effectively our bodies function.
The good news is that although you can’t change your genes, understanding more about them and making the right choices can change your health outcomes!
Based on a non-invasive saliva sample which is analysed and returned as a personalised genetic profile, we are able to take a holistic approach to addressing facets of your genetic profile that reveal what nutritional supplements will benefit you the most, the best choices of foods to consume and the type of exercise that will have a positive effect.
This means the treatment plan is more accurate as it is based on your own genetic profile
The field of DNA profiling is a complex and emerging science, the value of the Fitgenes programme is realised by testing key genes which have scientifically validated research supporting both their selection and the interpretation of the results.
As a certified Fitgenes practitioner I have been trained on how to analyse and interpret your results and most importantly, using those results and my skills as a naturopath and nutritionist to create the best treatment plan for you.
Since there is a large amount of information that comes with the results and treatment plan, you will be guided through your plan with a series of consultations, usually over a 12 week period.
