Nutritional & Lifestyle Genetics

Nutritional genetics is an exciting area of health science that enables us to identify potential underlying causes of your health status. Gaining insight into the differences in the way our genes function can help to understand genetic influences on nutrient deficiencies and to modify dietary, lifestyle and environmental factors that affect how genes are ‘expressed’.

Nutritional and lifestyle genetic analyses can help to:

  • Customise your Health Plan and nutritional program
  • Understand your genetic micronutrient needs
  • Target preventative health strategies
  • Improve healthy weight management
  • Understand your genetic inflammatory response
  • Learn how your body detoxifies and what support is needed
  • Understand your hormone metabolism pathways
  • Identify genes that may be influencing ageing
  • Understand your stress responses for effective management
When your body is healthy and receives the nutrients it genetically needs, you typically:
  • Age more slowly
  • Experience an improved quality of life
  • Feel less stressed
  • Suffer less with unhealthy conditions

A variety of options are available to suit your specific needs and budget beginning at $69 for 15 micronutrient genetic markers for Vitamins A, B6, B12, C, D, Folate, Calcium, Iron and Omega-3.

Celeste’s academic research into taste genetics, diet and anxiety, depression and cognitive function is the foundation for her current PhD research under scholarship at the University of Newcastle. Continuing education in nutrigenetics, nutrigenomics and epigenetics with Monash University and additional research into Vitamin D and telomeres (proteins on the end of genes whose shortening is linked to ageing and age-related disease) has developed broader understanding of both the limitations and advances in nutritional genetic research.
