DNA Testing

DNA Skype Evaluation

Understanding how your genetics affects your health can be understood through testing your DNA. A simple mouth swab is all that is required to delve deeper into the root cause of disease. There are numerous ways to test your DNA, however, knowing the genetic variations (SNPs) is only one part of the picture. Understanding what dietary interventions, lifestyle modifications and supplements protocols are required to manage these genetic variations (SNPs) are essential.

A DNA Skype Evaluation with Brad includes the DNA test kit sent to your house, a PDF of all genetic variations (SNPs) and a 30min Skype interpretation where Brad will explain the impact of your specific genetic variations (SNPs) and recommend a treatment plan using diet, lifestyle and nutritional supplements. To organise a DNA test contact Brad to discuss the best profile for you.

DNA Testing
Below are 5 DNA profiles* available and 1 Wellbeing Bundle. It is recommended to speak with Brad regarding the best profile to get tested.

  • Methylation Profile – $199
    Tests for single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) that may influence and impair the function of key metabolic pathways including methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR), folate and B12 metabolism, transsulfuration and homocysteine. Genes included in this profile include MTHFD1, MTHFR, SHMT, BHMT, MTR, MTRR, FUT2, TCN2 and CBS.
  • Hormone and Fertility Profile – $199
    Includes SNPs that provide critical insights into oestrogen, progesterone, thyroid and luteinising hormone function, as well as SNPs that indicate for the MTHFR gene. Genes include in this profile are LHCGR, PGR, FOXE1, CYP1B1, CYP19A1, CYP1A1, CYP17A1, COMT, GSTP1, NQ01, NAT2, MTHFR (both 677 and 1298), BCM01, PEMT, FADS1, DOS2, CAT, GPX1, AGT, NOS3, F2 and F5.
  • Mood and Cognition Profile – $199
    Tests for SNPs associated with the production, function and metabolism of key neurotransmitters including dopamine, serotonin, histamine and GABA. Genese included in this profile are MAO, DRD2/ANNK1, COMT, TH, DAO, GAD1, BDNF, FADS1, PEMT, MTHFR (both 677 and 1298), FUT2, TCN2, NQ01 and CAT.
  • Detoxification Profile – $199
    Identifies SNPs associated with phase 1 and 2 detoxification pathways, oxidative stress responses and cell oxygenation. Genese included in this profile are CYP1A1, CYP1A1/1A2, CYP2A6, CYP3A4, CYP19A1, CYP1B1, CYP2C19, CYP2D6, NAT2, GSTP1, SOD2, GPX1, NQ01, PON1, SLC23A1, MTHFR (both 677 and 1298). CBS, COMT, MAOA and DAO.
  • Nutrigenomic Profile – $199
    Provides personalised nutrition advice, based on SNPs associated with the metabolism of vitamins A, C, D and B12 as well as folate, glutathione and coenzyme Q10.Genes included in this profile are BCM01, FUT2, TCN2, SCL23A1, DHCR7, CYP2R1, GC, VDR, CYP24A1, MTHFR (both 677 and 1298), MTHFD1, MTR, MTRR, PEMT, FADS1, NQ01, GSTP1, GPX1, SOD2 and CAT.
  • Wellbeing Bundle – $350
    Focuses on 60 genetic variants, including all available profiles (Methylation, Hormone and Fertility, Mood and Cognition, Detoxification and Nutrigenomic Profile) to offer extensive insights into methylation, detoxification, endocrinology, neurotransmission, oxidative stress and nutrient metabolism.
  • Additional profiles can be added for an extra $99 each.
