Genotype Analysis for Optimum Health.
Sarah Flower offers Genotype Testing, alongside Food Intolerance and Allergy Testing, as well as a range of health screens in her clinic in Exeter, Devon.
DNA collection takes just 1 minute using a simple cheek swab, enabling an analysis of over 150 of the best researched genetic markers that can be impacted by diet and lifestyle.
Methylation is critical to keeping your body and brain biochemistry in balance. Common genetic variants (SNPs) can impact methylation and increase susceptibility to systemic imbalances and chronic health conditions such as cv disease, sub-fertility, mood swings, depression, dementia, fatigue, autoimmune disease, allergies and premature ageing.
Genetic variants (SNPs) can impact phase 1, 2 and 3 detoxification pathways and contribute to symptoms such as headaches, muscle aches, fatigue, allergies, skin disorders, weight gain, bloating, acid reflux and heartburn, excessive sweating, chronic infections, sub-fertility, decreased libido, poor mental function and lower stress tolerance.
Oestrogen and androgen imbalances can contribute to sub-fertility, PCOS, endometriosis, menstrual irregularities, excess facial hair (women) or breast tissue (men), osteoporosis, cardiovascular disease, blood clots, acne, sexual dysfunction, mood swings, poor memory, weight gain and hormone-sensitive cancers.
Histamine intolerance is a toxic response by the body resulting from an imbalance between accumulated histamine and the capacity to break it down. Symptoms of histamine toxicity may mimic an allergic reaction including skin irritation, gastrointestinal upset, respiratory distress, headaches, insomnia and anxiety.
Neurotransmitters are chemicals that enable communication within and between neurons in the mind and body. Symptoms of neurotransmitter imbalance can include mood imbalances, depression, mania, attention deficit and obsessive-compulsive disorders, addictive behaviours, motor control disruption, anger, aggression and restlessness.
The APOE4 genotype is a well-known risk factor for late-onset Alzheimer’s disease and cardiovascular diseases. This test also analyses genes involved in the three subtypes of Alzheimer’s - i) inflammatory, ii) toxic and ii) atrophic - described in the BredesenTMprotocol. Understanding your risk enables a personalised approach to managing it.
