Published on

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.

Fitgenes DNA Profiling to Support Health

  1. 1. DNA Profiling to Support Your Health
  2. 2. “Health is not everything, but without health, everything is nothing…” Schopenhauer
  3. 3. Your Perception of DNA> Crime shows and catching criminals> Human genome mapped> Predicting disease?
  4. 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. 5. A New Era> Personalised medicine> Preventive healthcare> Integrated healthcare> Integration of advanced technology into all aspects of healthcare
  6. 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. 7. Fitgenes Philosophy> Not disease predictive.> Fitgenes focuses on genes that impact on function.> Fitgenes focuses on genes that we can modify.
  8. 8. Gene ExpressionGenes that enhance health and function we wantto ‘turn up’. e.g. antioxidant genes that produce our antioxidant enzymes.
  9. 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.
