Introduction

  • Basics about DNA, genetics and health
  • Nutrigenetics and Nutrigenomics
  • Epigenetics
  • Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms (SNPs) vs. mutations and deletions

DNA Health®

  • A Functional Medicine approach to cardiovascular diseases and the impact of SNPs on lipid metabolism
  • Methylation and health
  • Genes and detoxification functions
  • Oxidative stress and health
  • The impact of SNPs on cytokine production and the management of uncontrolled inflammation
  • The genetic influence on bone, joint and ligament health and strength and vitamin D sensitivity
  • The genetics of insulin resistance and obesity
  • Genes and food responsiveness (lactose intolerance, caffeine clearance, salt sensitivity)


The DNA Health test is designed to optimise well-being and health by personalising lifestyle and diet choices and, where necessary, using supplements tailored to offset any particular nutritional deficit based on specific gene variants.

The DNA Health approach assists the healthcare practitioner in establishing the optimal nutrition necessary for good health, longevity and disease risk mitigation. Diet is a key factor in determining genomic stability as it impacts on all relevant pathways:  exposure to dietary carcinogens, biotransformation, DNA repair and synthesis, and apoptosis. Current recommended dietary allowances for vitamins and minerals are based largely on the prevention of diseases of deficiency. However, because diseases of lifestyle are partly caused by damage to DNA it stands to reason that we should focus our attention on defining optimal requirements of key minerals and vitamins for preventing genomic instability.

Additional attention should be paid to individuals with genetic polymorphisms that alter the bioavailability of specific micro-nutrients and the affinity of specific key enzymes for their micro-nutrient co-factor.

Clinical Value

  • Highlights specific metabolic pathways that may require extra support
  • Provides recommendations that involve optimisation of quantities of certain nutrients, vitamins and minerals
  • Suggests whether an individual is better able to reduce their cholesterol levels through diet, as opposed to through medication
  • Provides an indication of the degree of susceptibility to the harmful effects of carcinogens ingested in the diet


The DNA Health Test Report provides: 

  • The level of impact of any genetic variants identified
  • An explanation of their impact on health
  • Appropriate nutritional and lifestyle recommendations


The results are divided in sections of key metabolic function, so that genetic weaknesses and strengths within a functional area can be easily identified.
