DNA TESTING – Range of test panels that focus on key areas of health management, including mood, detoxification, methylation, hormones, fertility etc…

DNA testing is a sophisticated investigative tool which identifies variations in chromosomes, genes and proteins, otherwise known as single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) through obtaining a non-invasive sample from the body.


What biological functions are better understood through this profile?

The Detoxification Profile helps to identify the SNPs associated with specific detoxification enzymes and pathways including:

Phase 1 and phase 2 detoxification – antioxidant status – detoxification produces intermediate metabolites that act as reactive oxygen species (ROS) causing oxidative damage and inflammation – detoxification of certain pharmaceutical medications.

Symptoms and Conditions best suited to this profile

A history of drug and alcohol abuse – A use of pharmaceutical and recreational drugs – Adverse drug reactions – Autism – Chronic fatigue – Fibromyalgia – Food intolerances – Gastrointestinal and digestive complaints – Headaches – Hormonal imbalances – Immune dysfunction – Industry workers who have been exposed to pollutants, pesticides, herbicides and heavy metals – Known chemical sensitivities – Leaky gut syndrome – Menopausal symptoms – Migraines – Multiple chemical sensitivities – Multiple drug therapy – Premenstrual syndrome (PMS)


What biological functions are better understood through this profile?

The Hormone and Fertility Profile may assist to identify key genetic influences for those looking to conceive or improve hormonal health, including: – hormone metabolism e.g. oestrogen, thyroid – essential fatty acid metabolism, which is important for healthy brain and eye development – methylation for DNA and RNA (gene expression), neural development, cell function and development – risk of hypertension – antioxidant status – nutritional status – thyroid function – vitamin D metabolism – neurotransmitter metabolism

Patients, symptoms and conditions best suited to this profile :Couples experiencing difficulties conceiving

Couples interested in optimising their preconception health and general health during pregnancy for mother and baby – Poor nutrient status of vitamin D and essential fatty acids

– Women and men with a history of infertility

– Women with: • a history of miscarriage • a history of mood disorders, depression, post-natal depression • a history of preeclampsia • endometriosis • hormonal imbalances • menstrual cycle irregularities • ovulatory dysfunction • PCOS • PMS • premature menopause • thyroid issues • unexplained infertility


 What biological functions are better understood through this profile?

The Mood and Cognition Profile explores the proven genetic associations of mood and cognition through a greater understanding of:

Neurotransmitter production and function – methylation as it relates to neurotransmitter function – nutrient metabolism required for normal brain function and development such as phosphatidyl choline, essential fatty acids – brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) production associated with learning, memory, sleep, anxiety and depression.

Symptoms and conditions best suited to this profile:

Stress – Anxiety – Children with attention deficit disorder (ADD), attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), behavioural and learning issues – Depression – Insomnia – Irritability – Migraine – Mood swings – Panic attacks – Poor concentration and cognition – Poor memory – Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)


 What biological functions are better understood through this bundle?

The Wellbeing Bundle provides a health summary of key single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) and how these impact, and are impacted by, various processes in the body, including:

Methylation – neurotransmitter production and function – hormone metabolism – detoxification – antioxidant status – nutrient metabolism, transport and absorption – cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk – energy metabolism – DNA expression.

Symptoms and conditions best suited to this bundle

Anaemia – Anxiety – Attention deficit disorder (ADD) – Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) – Autoimmune disease – Chronic disease states – Chronic fatigue – Complex cases with multiple presentations – assists with treatment priorities – Digestive complaints – Family history of heart disease – Fatigue – Folate and B12 deficiency – Food intolerances – General fatigue – Headaches – High homocysteine – History of miscarriage – Hormonal imbalances – IBS – Immune dysfunction – Inflammatory disorders – Insomnia – Irritability – Leaky gut syndrome – Longstanding gastrointestinal issues – Low energy – Menopausal symptoms – Migraine – Mood swings – Multiple chemical sensitivities – Neuropathy – Panic attacks  – Premenstrual syndrome (PMS) – Poor concentration – Poor memory – Poor nutritional status despite a healthy diet – Poor wound healing – Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) – Recurrent infections – Stress.


 What biological functions are better understood through this profile?

The Nutrigenomic Profile helps to identify key single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) associated with:

Important aspects of nutrient metabolism, enzyme and receptor function – the metabolism and impact of essential nutrients such as vitamins A, C, D, E and B12 along with folate, glutathione and CoQ10.

  Symptoms and conditions best suited to this profile:

Chronic fatigue – General fatigue – General interest in health and wellbeing – Health maintenance – Low energy – Poor nutritional status despite a healthy diet – Poor wound healing and Recurrent infections.
