What is DNA testing & why do we use it in Modern Naturopathy?


DNA testing is a sophisticated investigative tool that identifies variations in chromosomes, genes, and proteins, otherwise known as single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) through obtaining a non-invasive sample from our patients.

With quality, innovation, and integrity as guiding principles, Natural & Healthy4Life provides a range of specialised diagnostic and clinical DNA solutions, beginning with our DNA genetic testing service.

We recognise the enormous value genetic testing can provide in modern naturopathy, highlighting the inter-relationships between genes, nutrition, and lifestyle. Our DNA testing partners have developed a range of test panels that focus on key areas of health management, including mood, detoxification, methylation, hormones, intestinal integrity, metabolic flexibility, and everything from preconception care to healthy aging, and longevity. By adhering to rigorous scientific standards, our test parameters select only those gene variants where a strong gene/environment association has been repeatedly shown.

The goal of using DNA testing and gaining accurate DNA results for our clients is to identify nutritional & naturopathic management pathways that embolden your beneficial DNA and prevent the expression of poor DNA variations.

Genetic variations are related to everything from your regular mood, risk of anxiety, cognition, Alzheimer's, diabetes, autoimmune disorders, methylation, detoxification capacity, production of antioxidant enzymes, hormone balance and function, along with nutrient absorption, transportation, and metabolism. The list goes on!

The great news is you don't need to understand every possibility. We take the work out of it for you and all that is required generally is our recommended Lifestyle changes; Nutritional enhancements and Herbal supplementation. 

What is Advanced Nutrient Therapy?

Advanced Nutrient Therapy uses nutrients rather than medications for correcting biochemical imbalances caused by genetic predisposition and environmental stressors.

Based on a half-century of scientific research by brilliant medical scientists and clinicians like Dr. William Walsh, Advanced Nutrient Therapy is an excellent example of modern epigenetic medicine and has successfully treated and benefited thousands of patients diagnosed with depression, anxiety, OCD, PTSD, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, ADD/ADHD, autism, dementia, and other conditions.

How Does Advanced Nutrient Therapy Work?

  • The individualised Advanced Nutrient Therapy is based on genetic tests, urine tests, and blood work to uncover the biochemical imbalances that are responsible for one’s illness.

  • These biochemical imbalances cause all kinds of mental illness and brain dysfunction by affecting neurotransmitters’ activities. Nutrients rather than medications can treat these conditions more effectively and far more safely.

  • This approach proved to be highly successful and has benefited millions diagnosed with depression, anxiety, PTSD, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, ADHD, among others.

These individually prescribed plans help activate the body’s inner healing—achieving ultimate wellness of mind, body, and spirit. Numerous patients have experienced reduced symptoms, reduced need for medications, and improved brain function, productivity, and quality of life.

What does this all mean for YOUR Health?

It means that with your comprehensive DNA report covering the full suite of your genetic variations, we are able to advise what nutritional and naturopathic lifestyle enhancements will not only prevent negative gene expression but what nutrition and wellbeing protocols will improve your positive 'health-giving' genes, improving your general health & wellbeing, and what most people want these days ~ A LONG, RICH AND HEALTHY LIFE ~ POSITIVE LONGEVITY!!!
