Nutritional & Physio Genomics
"The future of preventative health care"
Have you ever wondered why there are
so many individual differences in people's health despite fairly similar
nutritional, lifestyle or exercise advice for everyone? For example:
Why some people lose
weight or put on muscle easily whilst others struggle?
Why some people find it
easy to get motivated to exercise yet other's struggle?
Why some people have great
endurance, yet others have poor endurance but are great at sprints or power
Why some people seem to
have endless vitality despite having a poor diet?
Why one person may suffer
from one ailment yet another has a completely different ailment despite a
similar diet and lifestyle?
Etc. etc. etc.
The answers to these questions for
all of us are now available and lie in the genetic blueprint contained in DNA
in every cell of our body.
A new technological development known
as Nutritional or Physio Genomic testing offers us a window into our unique
genetic blueprint and explains why your body and mind functions in it's own
Physiogenomics has been described as "the
future preventative health care" by offering, rather than a one-size-fits-all
approach, a personalised approach to health care, where a personalised lifestyle
program including diet, nutrition, stress management, exercise and sleep is
developed according to your unique genes.
Epigenetic research has indicated
that our environment - not our DNA - shapes the development of our cells. Our
genes offer the blueprint, but it is environmental influences that determine
how these genes are expressed.
Using a simple saliva sample,
physiogenomics offers a view of your unique genetic profile. The test looks at 90
different gene variations that can impact you health, including:
Lipid (fat) Profiling
High Blood Pressure risk
- Body Composition
- Sports and Exercise Profiling - peak performance
- Anti-ageing - liver detoxification (phase I & II), oxidative
stress and inflammation
- Brain Health - stress responses, mood, addiction, seasonal sleep
and metal binding
- Fertility Profiling (for men and women) & Oestrogen Profiling
- Environmental Toxins
- Chronic Fatigue
- Your personalised lifestyle and
health care strategy is then tailored from this unique window into your genetic
disposition to health or disease
A great way of describing how
physiogenomics works is by describing your unique genetic blueprint as your
"loaded gun" with respect to health, and especially disease, and the
physiogenomic report as your window into this blueprint. You will learn your
weaknesses (or potential predispositions to certain diseases) and strengths
(leading you to optimal health).
It is your environment and your
interaction with it that determines whether you "pull the trigger" and turn
your dispositional weaknesses into health issues and/or disease.
Alternatively, and preferably, you
can you use this insight to live your life in a way where these weaknesses
never see the light of day and you optimize your strengths and your
understanding of your unique genetic profile to experience health and vitality
at levels you haven't previously felt and are rarely seen nowadays.
The incredible potential of this
testing lies in the information and understanding provided. The choices you
make based on this, will allow you to optimise your own human potential.
You need only do the test once. The
information you receive will last you your lifetime.
We are now proud to announce that we
offer Physiogenomic testing and subsequent health and well-being programs based
on the test.
As mentioned, testing requires only a
simple saliva sample, and testing packs are available from Tim Altman via the
shop on this website. The saliva sample is then sent to smartDNA (details with
the pack), whereupon a report will be sent back to Tim, who will then translate
and create a summary of this report which is outlined in a one hour
Tim will also liaise with any
trainers or coaches you may have regarding all aspects of your report that
pertain to your training and physical well-being.
The whole procedure takes
approximately one month (for the test to be done) and will give you abundant
amounts of information to embark on your unique preventative health and
The total cost for the test, report
and summary is $750. You need only do the test once. The information you
receive will last you your lifetime - out aim is to extend your lifetime and
improve it's quality exponentially!!!
The report and summary can be done as
either a consultation in person, via email or via a Skye consultation.
If you are interested in this ground
breaking technology, please contact Tim via email or call on 0425 739 918.
Alternatively, go to the shop section
of this website and book in your Physiogenomics test. You will be sent a test
kit that has full instructions of how to prepare the saliva sample and where to
send it. Once the results have been sent to Tim, he will contact you about the
report on the results and subsequent programs.
