Fitgenes has pioneered a new genre of Nutrigenomic practice and education for health care practitioners that integrates genetics, along with nutrition and exercise physiology into health and wellness programs for their patients.

Fitgenes programs are based on an individual’s unique DNA profile for the practitioner to apply personalised and manageable lifestyle and nutritional choices for the patients’ health goals.

Transcript

  • 1. DNA Profiling to Support Your Health
  • 2. “Health is not everything, but without health, everything is nothing…” Schopenhauer
  • 3. Your Perception of DNA> Crime shows and catching criminals> Human genome mapped> Predicting disease?
  • 4. DNA Will Change Medicine and Healthcare> We are on the brink of one of the most significant events in medicine and healthcare.> A paradigm shift.
  • 5. A New Era> Personalised medicine> Preventive healthcare> Integrated healthcare> Integration of advanced technology into all aspects of healthcare
  • 6. DNA Profiling> Are more genes better?> We have approx 25,000 genes and 3 million base pair combinations.> Major challenge is to take all this information and make it clinically relevant.
  • 7. Fitgenes Philosophy> Not disease predictive.> Fitgenes focuses on genes that impact on function.> Fitgenes focuses on genes that we can modify.
  • 8. Gene ExpressionGenes that enhance health and function we wantto ‘turn up’. e.g. antioxidant genes that produce our antioxidant enzymes.
  • 9. Gene ExpressionGenes that negatively impact on health andfunction we want to ‘turn down’. e.g. inflammatory genes that produce inflammatory cytokines that can cause damage.
  • 10. Gene Categories› Inflammation› Cellular Health and Oxidative Stress› Cardiovascular Health› Fat Metabolism and Weight Management› Vitamin D Receptor Function
  • 11. Inflammation
  • 12. Inflammation
  • 13. Inflammation
  • 14. Inflammation and Disease RiskAlzheimer’s OsteoporosisAnkylosing Spondylitis Periodontal diseaseAsthma PsoriasisAtherosclerosis Rheumatoid ArthritisAutoimmune Disease RhinosinusitisBronchitis SchizophreniaCancer Urinary Tract IssuesCardiovascular DiseaseDepressionDiabetesIBSInsulin ResistanceMacular Degeneration
  • 15. Are You Inflamed?> Sore / aching muscles and joints> Delayed onset muscle soreness after exercise> Prone to injuries when exercising> Fluid retention / swollen fingers and ankles, especially during or after exercise> Inflamed skin, skin disorders> Diarrhea> Current infection, injury, broken bone> Overweight
  • 16. Oxidative Stress
  • 17. Oxidative Stress
  • 18. Oxidative Stress and Disease Risk› Ageing› Alzheimer’s› Atherosclerosis› Cancer› Cardiovascular Disease› Diabetes› Hypertension› Insulin Resistance› Liver Damage› Melanoma
  • 19. Do you have Oxidative Stress?> Insulin Resistant> Diabetic> Raised liver enzymes> Getting older> Age spots> Had chemotherapy> Had radiotherapy> Inflamed> Overweight
  • 20. Cardiovascular Health
  • 21. Cardiovascular Health
  • 22. Cardiovascular Health
  • 23. Health and WeightIt is estimated that 75% of health and life expectancy after age 40 ismodifiable.Losing just 10% of your body weight can add 10 years to your life.
  • 24. Health and WeightA Federal GovernmentReport May 2009 titled“Weighing it up –Obesity in Australia”stated:› Environmental and Lifestyle Factors contribute approximately 30% to weight.› Genetics contributes the other 70%.› Other studies show a 50/50 split genetics/environment
  • 25. Weight Management
  • 26. Factors Influencing Weight Loss› Diet› Exercise› Hormones - Glucose, Insulin, Glucagon, Leptin, Adrenaline, Cortisol› Inflammation› Liver Function› Toxicity LevelsGenetics influences all of the above
  • 27. Your Genes:What is YourGenetic PlayingField?
  • 28. Benefits of a DNA Profile> Make the BEST Choices for YOUR Health.> Learn the best choices you can make, based upon your genome, to help you achieve optimal health and well being.> Choose the supplements, foods, exercise and lifestyle habits that best support YOUR health.
  • 29. Preventive Healthcare> Don’t wait to get sick before you focus on your health.> Genetic knowledge has the potential to shift healthcare from a disease focused model to prevention based medicine.> Gain a greater understanding of disease processes and your genetic ability to control these processes.> Learn how to obtain good health and maintain health.
  • 30. Positive Health Outcomes› Healthy weight› Improved energy› Improved fitness› Improved sleep› Better health
  • 31. 12 week program tobetter health and wellbeingFast Track to Health Programs
  • 32. Choice of Genetic ProfilesGenetic Profile:>General Health>Advanced
  • 33. Choice of Pathology> Basic> Comprehensive> Advanced
  • 34. Women’s Health Initiative Study An opportunity to be part of a new approach to health care.> You can be one of the first people in the world to undertake a comprehensive DNA based nutrigenomic program with advanced pathology screening.
