Genomic Testing – Your Personal Blue Print
Genomic Screening for Life-Long health
It is very important to differentiate between genetic and genomic testing. Genetic testing highlights inherent risk of developing disease, whereas genomic testing provides information on what can be done to influence how your cells are likely to behave.
Genes can be switched on or turned off under the influence of:
- the nutrients that we eat
- hormones that we produce and
- environmental toxins that we absorb and do not eliminate
Ensuring correct nutritional intake, reducing stress and increasing our natural calming hormones as well as avoiding toxins and boosting our detoxification processes can all influence our genetic tendencies.
Anyone of us may be at a genetic risk of heart disease, immune system failure, neurological disease, dementia, and even cancer , but following the information given from genomic screening can slow down or disable the more dangerous gene activity and increase the activity of the protective genes.
Recommended Tests and Investigations
All our genomic testing includes the required pre-test consultation and consent and a report on the results from our Doctor.
FHS Cardio Genomics – £385
The results provide information on the genetic variations that control blood pressure, cholesterol and blood fats (lipid) balance, nutrients metabolism, a tendency to inflame the arteries and protect against free radicals (oxidative stress) that damage arteries.
FHS Detoxification Genomics – £490
The results provide information on the genetic variations associated with increased risk of poor ability to detoxify, our capability of dealing with environmental toxins such as pesticides or heavy metals and can tell us about our likelihood of side effects with certain drugs.
FHS Hormonal Genomics – £599
The results provide information on the genetic variations that influence how women deal with oestrogens as well as how one regulates coagulation (blood clotting as this can be increased by the use of the pill or HRT), the likelihood of oestrogens influencing arterial health and whether there is an increased risk of osteoporosis (thin bones).
FHS Immune Genomics – £375
The results provide information on the genetic variations that modify immunity and defence against infection and some cancers as well as inflammation. Genes govern allergy and over-reactivity in auto-immunity.
FHS Neuro-Genomics – £492
The results provide information on the genetic variations that influence particular pathways that support neurological repair and, very importantly, detoxification. Many neurological conditions are theorised to be due to toxins that the nervous system cannot remove efficiently enough. This screening also looks at the likely ability of good arterial blood flow to the brain.
FHS Brain Genomics – £450
The results provides information on the genetic variations that analyzes genetic patterns known to be involved in the development of Alzheimer’s disease as well as its underlying possible causes such as lipid (fat) metabolic disorders, inflammation processes and other independent disorders involved in other metabolic pathways. The results offer information to reduce the relative risk by use of preventive measures.
FHS Bone Density Genomics – £335
The results provides information on the genetic variations that play a role in the synthesis of the protein meshwork upon which bone is built (collagen) and the absorption and utilization of calcium and other minerals by the bone. Build up and break down of this active tissue is by osteoclast and osteoblast activity, and these are measured along with a tendency to be missing an important enzyme – lactase deficiency. Results can lead to changes in lifestyle and diet that may slow down or prevent the development of osteoporosis.
FHS Fitness Genomics – £625
The results provides information on the genetic variations that are involved in energy expenditure, psychological motivation, muscular, heart and lung capacity, the ability to recover recovery after injury and, very interestingly what a body can expect regarding it’s own strength/endurance. Fitness Genomic results help you to choose the physical activity most adapted to you and highlight your capacities.
FHS Medication Genomics – £405
The results provides information on the genetic variations that aims to analyze the major drug pathways of a person. It can help a physician to choose the most suitable drugs and dosage for a given patient among a large selection of drugs prior to a prescription or if side effects are bothering someone on medication.
FHS Well Being Genomics – £2,250
This is the ‘big daddy’ profile which covers detoxification capacities, cardiovascular diseases, skin and dental health, neurological weight management, bone health, physical and mental fitness. The results offer personalized and detailed recommendations on how to govern your nutrition, diet and lifestyle. The Well Being test may be carried out for any person of any age, including new born and children, who want to devise a life-long plan to avoid health conditions by taking appropriate measures as soon as possible.
