The DNA Testing Centres of Canada are leading the way in the science of analyzing and monitoring an individual’s genetic makeup. These advances in genetic studies now allow you to get your DNA tested, in order to determine if you are prone to developing certain diseases such as Alzheimer’s, diabetes (type 1 & 2), heart disease, or breast cancer. As a result of this knowledge, customized nutritional and lifestyle strategies can be created and implemented to take appropriate preventative measures. If executed early enough, you can work towards prevention of a disease.
Our knowledge of how your DNA predisposes you to disease is constantly increasing and becoming more accurate as this science evolves. (Note that the conditions that are screened for at DNA Testing Centres of Canada, the association between the genetic marker and the disease must have been published in a top-tier, peer-reviewed medical/scientific journal and replicated at least once.) Most current advice (i.e. from health care professionals, magazine articles, research studies etc.) is based on what is good for the general population and may not take into account your specific needs. Since everyone’s DNA is different, a customized action plan based on your DNA could make a world of difference for you and your family.
How Does it Work?
There are two essential components to the DNA Enhancement Program:
- Taking a history questionnaire, and
- Submitting a DNA sample which our lab technicians will collect.
(Note that there are no needles involved, and no blood samples are taken.)
The DNA samples are then sent to our laboratory for processing. From the information that is gathered your health is evaluated in processes that affect your diet and lifestyle choices.
These two important pieces of information are then combined to generate your confidential, personalized DNA “Enhancement Action Plan” that is in a form of a written report. With the latest advances in genetics research now available to the consumer, you have the power to take charge of your health with personalized recommendations and guidelines developed just for you.
