Health & Wellbeing Test
Personalised Health and Wellbeing
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.
Personalised Genetic Profiling
Personalised genetic profiling offers profound insight into how your body responds to diet, exercise and lifestyle choices. Understanding how to interpret the results of your profile report and convert the information in to programs for actionable, everyday health and wellbeing, is where Fitgenes and our accredited practitioners can offer you the potential to be the best you can be.
Our approach is based on the science of nutrigenomics which looks at the interaction between your genes, nutrition and lifestyle choices, and how these influence the genes’ messages. These messages instruct your body on how it should respond to external influences such as diet and lifestyle choices.
The good news is expression of the genes analysed by Fitgenes is modifiable which means our genes are not our destiny.
Our comprehensive Health and Wellbeing Genetic Profile Report is interpreted by a Fitgenes Accredited Practitioner so they can design a personalised plan to meet individual health goals. Effectively, how your genes are reacting to external factors is analysed and reported on, and a plan to address any negative reactions prepared, based on your unique genetic profile and needs.Unique approach
