Genetic Profiling for Personalized Health
Empower yourself and learn how to take charge of your health.
Fitgenes - how we look, feel and function is determined by the influence of diet, exercise, nutrition and behaviour on our genetic make-up. Learn how to tailor your exercise, diet and lifestyle to achieve optimal health with a Fitgenes Genetic Profile and take control of your destiny with a personalized intervention plan. You can't change your genes but you can change the way they determine your wellbeing.
Scientific evidence tells us that our genes are not static, but in fact responsive to the choices we make, which impacts on how effectively they ‘express’ themselves. Gene expression is a way of explaining how we feel in terms of our wellbeing and how effectively our bodies function. Based on a non-invasive saliva sample which is analysed and returned to us as a personalised genetic profile, we are able to take a holistic approach to understand what nutritional supplements will benefit you the most, the best choices of foods to consume and the type of exercise that will have a positive effect. This effectively eliminates any guesswork around what will work for you - the treatment plan is based on your own genetic profile.
We are continually bombarded with new health information. It is difficult to know if the research is relevant to us and how we live – how do we achieve a long and healthy life? Fitgenes is unique in the world of genetic testing in that it provides evidence based, practical interventions that help us optimize our health.
You may be feeling tired; you might feel that whatever you do your health is just not improving? Your diet might be healthy and you’re exercising more, but the weight is not shifting, there is a history of cancer, cardiovascular conditions, diabetes, obesity or other life-threatening diseases in your family and you want to know your risks. Nutrigenomics, the science of combining genetics, nutrition, exercise and lifestyle is the perfect solution for you.

“My clients love the ability to take charge of their health with the information provided in the Fitgenes profiles. Often I get asked “Do I really want to know my risks?”, but when they understand they can effectively turn up their good genes and turn down the less beneficial ones, they realize it’s like having an added insurance policy. Fitgenes help you define your playing field and gives you the choice of how you want to live. Our bodies replace all our cells every 90 days – it’s never too late to implement change. “
If you want to understand more about Nutrigenomics we have a great little book pitched at a level that most clients can understand. This gives a good explanation on how we can influence our genes and ultimately our long term health:
