Genetic Testing

GT establishes an in-depth understanding of your genetic predispositions – where we need to focus our attention.

Our bodies are complex. Through genetic testing we look at how your genes work together in cellular pathways and functional systems to control processes such as inflammation, metabolism and detoxification. We establish an in-depth understanding to your genetic predispositions – where we need to focus our attention to ensure that your diet and your supplements support physical and mental health. Traditionally, we have spent far too much time focusing on and trying to fix symptoms -instead, we want to change this by understanding what’s happening at a deep cellular level so we can prevent, delay or reverse disease.

We believe that health is not a static condition, but a daily choice. Using your genetic Blueprint we can gain a deeper understanding of YOUR body and the daily choices you need to make with regard to diet, lifestyle choices and supplementation.

Our job is to give you the simple blueprint that tells you what you need to stay healthy and at peak performance.

We look at the relationships between your genes in 25 metabolic pathways in your body. This approach ensures you get comprehensive feedback with explanations, recommendations and guidelines that are unique to you.

How do I do the test?

You can do your test at home or at dr Rene or dr Maria’s practice. The easy-to-use kit is beautifully packaged and comes with step-by-step instructions. Collecting your genetic sample is as easy as swabbing each cheek with what looks like an earbud for 30 seconds.

You then place it back in the given container and the courier picks it up and takes it to the lab.

From the time your sample is collected your DNA and data is kept securely. All of your genetic data is stored in our secure Amazon Web cloud environment. Our lab ensures that they meet the exacting requirements of POPI, GDPR and HIPAA.

In approximately 2-4 weeks we will send you a report with tailor-made guidelines to lifestyle choices, foods to eat and foods to avoid, exercise recommendations and suggested supplements which will be the ideal adjuncts to assist your body to reach better health and vitality.

What DNA testing could do for you?

Personalized medicine is an emerging practice that uses an individual’s genetic profile to guide decisions in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of disease. It is an acknowledgement that everyone is different and that a uniform treatment approach is no longer sufficient to ensure the optimal health of the individual. Our genes determine who we are, from the most obvious characteristics we see, when we look at each other, to the less obvious differences, such as our risks for different diseases, ability to respond to certain medications, or how certain lifestyle priorties may benefit us.

Currently we offer six cutting edge tests to provide valuable information across the health spectrum. Tailoring a nutritional plan based on test results can help with weight management, athletic performance, with optimal training and recovery strategies and preventing cardio metabolic disease, some cancers and other lifestyle diseases.

Test results are shown in straightforward, individual friendly graphics to help you and your practitioner work on a personalised treatment and lifestyle plan that will help you to achieve optimal health. What DNA testing could do for you Your report will show a list of all the genes tested, describing their impact on the relevant metabolic or biochemical process, from no impact to high impact.
