DNA TESTING

THE FOREFRONT OF PERSONALISED MEDICINE

WE KNOW NUTRIENTS CAN BE REALLY HELPFUL AND NECESSARY IN A LOT OF CASES. BUT WHAT ALSO NEEDS TO BE CONSIDERED IS...

How a person's genetic situation affects the way they process, store, metabolise and potentially reject, certain nutrients. 

That two people with the same condition who are given the same nutritional treatment, have varying results. 

How specific preventative measures may help to reduce certain inherited medical conditions from developing.

WHAT IS PERSONALISED MEDICINE?

Each of us are unique and our wellness can be directly affected by our individual, inherent differences as well as diet, lifestyle choices and the environment we live in. Instead of using a one-size-fits-all approach, personalised medicine allows our Naturopath, Lisa Waayer, to tailor treatment protocols to achieve more positive outcomes. Lisa is able to identify patients who are more likely to benefit from specific treatments, nutrient types or dosages in advance from those who are not.

 

CLINICAL SERVICES DNA TESTING

Clinical services DNA testing is a sophisticated, investigative tool which helps to identify variations in your genes. It allows you to work with our Naturopath to make more informed health and lifestyle decisions. By providing an in-depth report outlining the potential effects on areas within genes called singlenucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs), your InTouch Health Co. practitioner can help to develop more targeted and effective treatment protocols. Researchers have found that SNPs may help identify dietary, lifestyle and supplemental changes that can be made to optimise overall health outcomes.

 

HOW DO I GET STARTED?

Completing the Clinical Services DNA test is simple, non-invasive and takes only a few minutes to complete. Call InTouch Health Co. to book your appointment and advise that you are interested in completing a DNA Test with our Naturopath. Lisa will call you for a quick chat about the easy process and organise for the test to be available at your next appointment.

 

The sample is easily collected by simply rolling the inside of your cheek using the swab provided, sealing the swab tube and sending the sample off to the laboratory.

 

In approximately 10 working days, our Naturopath will be notified that your test results are available. Lisa will then spend time tailoring some recommendations based on the results. Your results and tailored treatment protocol will then be presented and discussed at your next follow-up consultation.

The cost of the DNA Test will be in addition to the Naturopathy consultation fee.

 

WHAT TESTS ARE AVAILABLE?

We recognise the value DNA testing can provide in highlighting the inter-relationships between genes, nutrition and lifestyle. We offer a range of profiles that focus on key areas of health management, including fertility, hormones, mood, detoxification and nutrient influence on gene expression (nutrigenomics). See below for further information on each profile available for testing.
