Unlocking your Genetic Potential.

Functional Pathology Testing
Nutrition, diet, exercise and lifestyle choices, including stress, affect our genes either switching them on or off to promote health or disease. By learning your genetic profile you can influence your future health by the nutritional and lifestyle choices you make now.

 

I specialise in the following Genetic Tests
A simple saliva test provides comprehensive information about your unique genetic profile. I then match diet, nutrition and lifestyle specifically to your genetic makeup to prevent disease and support lifelong wellness.
MTHFR gene defects inhibit the metabolism of folate (B9) to its activated form, causing potentially serious consequences; cardiovascular disease, mental disorders, depression, insomnia, fatigue, cancer, chronically illness, poor liver detoxification, autoimmune diseases. It’s essential to ensure your practitioner is trained in MTHFR and methylation as treatment protocols are complex and can vary significantly between individuals.
Pyrrole disorder is a genetic problem that causes Zinc and vitamin B6 deficiencies (also Biotin and Omega 6 to a lesser degree). Zinc and B6 deficiencies are related to anxiety, depression, mood, disorders, autism, fatigue, poor stress tolerance, digestive and immune issues. Treatment and dosing can be complex requiring specialist knowledge.
