Why test your genetics through Naturopathy?
Everything you eat can have an effect on your genes. Our genes cannot be changed, but you can change how well they function by making the right dietary choices. This means that, if you know your genes, you can make better informed decisions about your diet to maximise your health than if you only receive generic dietary advice.
To meet your goal of becoming and staying healthy, nutrition and lifestyle interventions based on your genetics may assist with the following:
• Obesity and Pre-Diabetes
• Dietary Intolerances and Sensitivities
• Cardiovascular Issues
• Sports Performance
• General Health and Wellbeing

This test helps you understand how your body metabolises and tolerates starchy carbohydrates by providing you with a copy number variation (CNV) of your AMY1 gene. This is the gene specifically related to the production of the enzyme ‘amylase’.
Amylase is found in our saliva and plays a major role in the digestion of starch, which is a carbohydrate found in grains, legumes, fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds.
Knowing this CNV can help you better manage your nutritional and exercise needs.
This is the most comprehensive test available and looks at genetic variants that can have a primary physiological effect on your body, including:
Vitamin D Receptors
Methylation and Homocysteine Metabolism
Fat Metabolism and Cholesterol Regulation
There are two possible upgrades available for this test: FoodChoice and ImmuneHealth
