DNA-Nutrigenomic Testing

Nutrigenomics is a new scientific discipline that uses modern genomics technology to study the relationship between genes, nutrition and health. It has long been apparent that some people respond differently from others to certain foods. For example, individuals with lactose intolerance experience gastrointestinal discomfort after consuming certain dairy products, while other individuals can consume dairy with no problems. Nutrigenomics allows us to understand how our genes affect the way we respond to the foods, beverages and supplements we consume.

Using a saliva sample, the Nutrigenomic Test helps us optimize your diet to your genes in order to reduce your risk of certain health conditions and diseases. Each gene tested is significantly involved in the way your body processes or metabolizes a certain nutrient or dietary component. With that information, we know which foods and nutrients your body needs more – or less – of to prevent chronic diseases such as cancer, heart disease, stroke and type 2 diabetes.

Test result  analysis gives appropriate recommendations and early warning to: 

  • Diseases

  • Traits and talents

  • Response to fats

  • Important influences on your eating habits

  • Vitamins

  • The effectiveness of your metabolism

  • Sports and recreation in tune with your genes

  • Genetically determined addictions and ageing

Food Intolerance/Allergy 

Blood Testing

A food intolerance test is often the first step before starting a diet or treatment.

Intolerance of certain foods - foodstuffs can lead to obesity, fluid retention, chronic fatigue, skin diseases, allergies and other diseases. A simple blood test will detect which foods you can't tolerate. 

Milk, tomatoes, steak and beans are healthy - but not for everyone! What constitues a healthy diet for most people can result in health complaints and obesity in others.

Food intolerance can affect your health and well-being for years because of the reaction it evokes from the immune system.

The human immune system is important for our well-being. It fights infections caused by bacteria, virusses, fungi or parasites. Intolerance is different: our body - our immune system - reacts defensively to a strange substance (food). This can lead to chronic health complaints and obesity.

Food intolerance has recently been linked to various complaints such as:

  • Obesity / stomach bloating / fluid retention

  • Chronic fatigue syndrome

  • Diabetes mellitus type II

  • Fybromyalgia

  • Rheumatic complaints

  • Joint complaints

  • Certain skin diseases

  • Chronic stomach - intestinal complaints

  • Migraine

By eliminating those foods which you can't tolerate, revealed in the results of the blood tests, the stress on the immune system is removed and the chronic complaints visibly improve or may even disappear completely.
