+ Nutrigenomics Diet - control your genetic expression

Nutrigenomics – your diet controls your genes?

I’m always frustrated when I hear people relate their state of health to being “in their genes.”  I love the analogy that whilst your genes are like a loaded ‘gun’, it is your diet, lifestyle, stress and other environmental exposures that pull the ‘trigger’ that causes disease and premature ageing.  In other words, we have a lot of control when it comes to our health and disease expression.

We are all unique individuals and after working in holistic health care for such a long time, I know that a one-fits-all approach to diet and lifestyle is simply absurd.  Nutrigenomics, where our unique DNA blueprint is synchronised with our diet and lifestyle is an exciting new realm of personalised wellness medicine.  This state of the art genetic testing offers predictive medicine at its best.  It is a science that simply fascinates me.

How genes can be switched on and off…
Most people understand that our genes support our uniqueness – they influence everything from the colour of our eyes and our height to the predisposition to chronic disease.  However, science now confirms that our genes interact with our lifestyle choices, such as nutrition, exercise and environmental exposures.

According to Chevonne Clasen from Remede Wellness Medicine, “To understand more about your genes, it is important to know that our unique genetic make-up, which is what we are born with, is like our hard drive – and represents our health potential for life.  To function optimally in our environment, our genes have ‘epigenomes’, which are parts of our genes that interact with the environment and cause our genes to be ‘triggered’ – otherwise known as ‘epigenetics’ or our software.  Therefore, the expression of our DNA is actually controlled by signals from outside each cell – which primarily come from our diet, lifestyle and environmental exposures”.

By matching your diet and lifestyle to your unique genetic makeup you can optimise your body to:

▪ Age well

▪ Know how your body works and make informed lifestyle choices to fine-tune your genetic expression

▪ Prevent and reduce the risk of chronic diseases, as well as treat existing health problems

▪ Improve your energy levels and concentration

▪ Know what diet will optimise the health of your genes

▪ Know exactly which supplements will help your body function at it’s very best

▪ Exactly which weight reduction or maintenance strategy will work best for you

By doing a simple once-only saliva test, you can discover your DNA blueprint and learn how well your genes are matched to your present diet and lifestyle, as well as how you can unlock the full potential of your current and future health and wellness.

Kind words…

“I downloaded your ebooks after hearing you speak at the Health and Wellness Summit in Melbourne. Love them, life changing… Don’t stop! Thank you for getting the whole food message out there, I certainly heard it.” Melanie

“I love your ebooks, I have all three of them now and they are now my only go to receipe books. They are simple, wholesome and taste great. THANK YOU!!! I have spent alot of money on courses about healthy eating and recipe books but your books have covered it all and my little man enjoys the snacks etc. Wish I would have found you earlier “. Brooke

“I just want to say a huge thank you for your amazing website and information. I’ve never liked cooking and never got excited by my ‘healthy’ cooking. My husband is even worse and if he could, he would just eat beacon and eggs every morning and steak every night. He hardly ate any veggies. Since I found your website I have gone through almost every recipe. My husband is loving every meal as well – even meat free Monday, and he’s taking left-overs to work for lunch (honestly, who thought that could be so hard?!)” Rose

This page has become my little bible hehe! Thank you so much for all the detail you give. It’s absolutely wonderful!” Sky
