Optimizing DIET, HEALTH & WEIGHT
through PERSONAL GENETICS is what I use in my clinical practice to individualize treatment protocols for my clients.
Find out why you're hungry all the time. Are you stimulating your Ghrelin Hormone causing food seeking behaviour? Did you know that your DNA can tell you if eating so many grams of saturated fat or carbohydrates stimulate your Ghrelin Hormone, or if you are okay with carbs and removing them is causing you to gain weight.
Find out how much protein you actually need, and if your stomach has the right amount of enzymes to properly break down nutrients so you can utilize them stimulating your Leptin Hormone, which signals that you are full.
Fine out what type of exercise your body needs. Do you have fast and slow twitch muscles that allow you to do HIIT training for longer intervals or are shorter intervals better for you? Can you lift heavy weights without gaining subcutaneous fat or does it cause it?
Find out if your thyroid isn't converting T4 hormone to T3 the way it should, causing your thyroid to run slow. If this is the case, we work at correcting that with supplements and proper diet, and raising your thyroid level so that your metabolism will increase.
Find out if intermittent fasting is for you or not. Should you eat three meals spread out 5-6 hours, or eat later morning, only having 2 meals per day and eating in an 8 hour window?
Do you have the Fatso Gene expressing? If you do, we correct it through supplements, proper diet and timing, to increase metabolism.
Do you have a sleep disorder that doesn't allow you to get into REM sleep, causing high cortisol and making you HUNGRY! Lowering cortisol and taking certain supplements will help you get into phase 4 deeper sleep, allowing your body to heal and cortisol to lower. It will also lower inflammation, which we know causes disease.
Knowing what genes are expressing and what your DNA shows, allows you to give your body the right amount and type of food you need, stop the cravings and increase your metabolism.
The five cornerstones of health in my practice are metabolism, diet, stress, inflammation and detoxification. Optimizing these is the foundation of good health and the reduction of disease risk. We will be looking at genes and SNPs that impact your metabolism, diet and stress. These three factors are closely interlinked when it comes to your weight, energy levels and diet. Some of them are associated with the development of diseases such as type 2 diabetes but it is important to bear in mind that such diseases have multiple etiologies and contributing factors. So, while you may have a “risk allele” you may never develop the condition. Personal genetic analysis lets you identify your own personal strengths and weaknesses and allows you to make sensible lifestyle choices to potentially improve your overall health and well-being. It may also help you achieve your ideal weight. If it can help reduce your risk for certain diseases, then that is an added benefit.
