  • Weight loss

  • Detoxification

  • Metabolism

  • Brain health

  • chronic illness risk

How does it help me?

By testing your genes, a health care professional can provide a personalised health approach for your including 

  • Choosing effective lifestyle interventions such as a change in diet and/or taking supplements.

  • Knowing which diseases you are predisposed to, e.g. cholesterol, type II diabetes.

  • Learn of current conditions you may have, e.g. lactose intolerance.

  • Find out more about your athletic potential.

  • Be warned of addictive behavioural traits, etc.

I use  the company , 3x 4 genetics  to do my genetic testings and they test 25 different pathways to allow you to make the best decisions for your health

How does the test work?

The test is done by a simple swob test of your mouth which takes 1 minute . Your swob is then sent off to the lab and your results takes three  weeks. Once your results are extracted, you will meet with me for 1 hour to design a personalised health approach just for your

What are the costs?

The cost of the test is R4400 and the feedback session is an additional R650.
