My interest is the optimisation of your health and wellbeing. Risk assessment and early intervention for certain diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease and diabetes may be influenced by medication and Epigenetics.
Epigenetics is the science behind the expression of DNA, that can be modified without changing the structure of DNA itself. This is quite useful in explaining the mechanisms of ageing and origins of cancer, heart disease, mental illness as well as several other conditions. By influencing gene expression through lifestyle and micronutrients you may reduce your risk.
Genetic testing comprises of a one hour consultation covering the following:
* Full history of any symptoms or health concerns
* Past medical history, medications, allergies, lifestyle and family history
* Blood, saliva and urinary tests
* Referral for further tests as required such as MRI and ultrasound
