Live healthy in accordance with your genetic make-up

Genediet

Why do some diets work for others but not for you? You are unique and your meal plan should be too!

What is the Genediet test?

The Geneway Genediet test shows your genetic weaknesses that increase the risk of becoming overweight and set out ways to manage your weight effectively.

You could be born with:
• Eating behaviours e.g. emotional and binge eating or “addictive”behaviours
• A genetic lack of fat burning
• A slow metabolism
• Little response to physical exercise during weight loss efforts
• Tendencies to insulin resistance
• Particular vitamins and mineral needs
• Susceptibility to hunger
• Dietary or carbohydrate sensitivity

The GeneDiet TM test will give you recommendations, including the type of diet and exercise best suited for your genetic profile.

Genewell

If you could safeguard your future health, would you?  Susceptibility does not mean inevitability!!

What is the Genewell TM test?

The test screens for genetic variations that may affect your health, or already do. You can reduce your susceptibility for the risks, by being proactive and implementing the science-based strategies recommended to you. These may vary from modest changes in your environment, your diet, physical activity or adjustments of the nutritional supplements and medications you take.

Studies show that your lifestyle, and the types of foods that you eat, could have a significant effect of the expression of your genes.

The genes included in the GeneWay TM test are associated with:
• Heart Disease
• Cholesterol
• Inflammation
• Diabetes
• Insulin disorders
• Mood disorders and depression
• Methylation
• Cognitive
• Certain types of cancer
• Oxidative stress
• High blood pressure
• Vitamin D and B requirements
• Bone health
• Iron metabolism
• Estrogen metabolism
• Lactose tolerance
• Drug (medication) metabolism

These tests will give you and your Health Care Practitioner the necessary information and tools to approach your health with precision.

Are you genetically pre-disposed to premature ageing?

The two main processes that induce skin ageing are classified as intrinsic and extrinsic. Intrinsic ageing, also known as the natural ageing process, is a continuous process that normally begins in the mid -20s. Extrinsic ageing is caused by environmental factors, such as sun exposure, air pollution, smoking, regular alcohol intake and poor nutrition.

Both intrinsic ageing as well as how the body responds to extrinsic ageing are affected by genetics.

What is the GeneRenew TM test?

The test will focus on the following:
• Firmness and elasticity
• Skin anti-oxidation
• Skin irritability and sensitivity
• Kin detoxification
• Skin cell renewal
