Your Personalized Health Program
Genetic Analysis by GeneRx.ca
Genetics accounts for
- 50-60% of athletic performance
- 40-50% of aerobic fitness
- 70% of our metabolism and body weight
- 40% of anxiety and depression risk
- 28% of cardiovascular disease risk
One diet, exercise, lifestyle and supplement program does not work for everyone. What fits your body best is coded in your DNA. To get started, talk to your health care practitioner.. He or she can help organize your genetic test and produce your personal health report.
Our bodies are controlled by a set of genetic instructions known as our genome. Our individual DNA provides codes for everything from eye colour to antibody production; It determines our risk of disease, our reaction to stress, our response to illness and how we respond to food, exercise and medications.
Knowing your individual genetic coding and how all of your specific genes interact with each other is the foundation of your present and future health. While we cannot change our genes, we can optimize our lifestyle to what fits them best. We can also change the strength with which our genes express their effects. This can all be achieved through, diet, exercise and natural supplements. Decoding your genetic data provides you with a detailed blueprint of how your body works. It allows your health care practitioner to advise you of your specific health risks and your reaction to factors such as foods, exercise, supplements and stress. It provides the foundation for a highly individualized lifestyle and treatment protocol.
Armed with your personal genetic blueprint you can work with your doctor to finally achieve the goals you’ve struggled with for years and optimize your current and future health.
The report contains individual details on:
- Metabolism: How often you should eat and how that affects your weight. What control
your metabolism, food cravings and hunger? What is your best diet? Is Intermittent Fasting
right for you?
- Diet: How you respond to and handle dietary carbohydrates, fats, proteins and dairy, with the exact amount of each macronutrient you need to manage weight, balance blood sugar levels and prevent disease.
- Exercise and Cardiovascular Health: What type of cardiovascular and resistance training is best for you with respect to oxygenation, inflammation, recovery, cardiovascular and metabolic health.
- Stress Response: An in-depth look at the production, transportation, binding and receptor density of, cortisol, adrenaline, noradrenaline and CRH to determine how you respond to stress, the strength of its effect and the ability to turn off stress pathways once the stressor is resolved
- Neurotransmitters – An in depth look at the production, transportation and metabolism of serotonin and dopamine and how this affects mood, memory, addictions, learning and sleep.
- Hormones Do you convert your estrogen and testosterone into the active forms at high rates increasing the risk of hormonally related disease, and how quickly do you clear these hormones out.
- Immunity A look at the immune response to determine your risk and how better to manage allergies, infections, auto-immune disorders and inflammatory disease.
- Inflammation Examines the production of inflammatory mediators that contributes to disease risk and progression, impairs neurotransmitter binding and stimulates many other genes.
- Detoxification A look at detoxification pathways in the body to help identify, modify and clear toxins, hormones and medications that otherwise would remain as potential disease instigators.
- Sleep How well do you sleep? Do you transition easily into deep sleep, and are you a night owl? A look at circadian rhythms and the quality of your sleep to reset abhorrent sleep patterns.
- Thyroid. A look at the production and regulation of TSH, conversion of T4 into active T3 to help determine the strength and functioning of the thyroid and guide better treatment protocols.
