Have you ever wondered what the right diet is for you? Paleo, keto, plant based, high protein, low protein, low carb? UGH, it can be frustrated to sort all of it out. Will you lose weight when you exercise or could you go the gym every day and not see any results? Will decreasing your salt intake help decrease your blood pressure or will it have not affect all? How much rest time do you need between exercise sessions to avoid injury and get the best gains? Will caffeine help or hurt your exercise performance? If you have ever asked yourself any of these questions, then you are in the right place! Getting to know your DNA can help answer these questions and so many more.
We believe that knowing your genes is the key to personalized care.
Why? Because you can learn a lot from your genes! Unfortunately, many people tend to think that genetic testing is just for determining your ancestry, or checking to see if you're predisposed to a specific disease or not. And while those things are true, genetic testing allows you to gain insights into how your genes function and how they impact your overall health and wellness.
When you take a genetic test, it looks at a selection of genes that work together to provide you with a blueprint for how your own body functions. Here are the major areas where genetic testing can give you insight into your body's functionality, and where you can make better diet and lifestyle choices that will be more optimized for you.
Healthy Heart – find out how your genes are supporting your heart health and how you can support your cardiovascular system;
Weight Loss – your genes have a big role to play in how your body manages weight, find out insights to help you manage your weight intelligently;
Hormones – find out how well your hormones work and get insights about whether you should be avoiding taking hormones, such as the contraceptive pill or testosterone;
Immunity - how well are your genes working to fight off viruses, knowing how healthy your immune system is and what you can do to build a strong immune system are important in these times;
Exercise– find out what training works best for you, how to get fit and avoid injury by training smarter;
Brain health - what you can do to optimize cognition as you get older;
Optimal diet – Find out how well you process nutrients such as gluten, vitamin D, caffeine and many more.
Research has shown that connecting genetic information to nutrition and lifestyle advice shows sustained long term results. By receiving personalized guidance based on your genetics, you will see results more quickly and those results stick around. It has been shown that this type of paired nutrition and lifestyle advice tied to your DNA can help motivate and encourage based on results.
Your genes are unique. They tell the story of you, and only you; no one else has ever had the same genetic makeup. That’s awesome, because instead of having to do what works okay for most, you can do what works best for you. Working with us at Decoding Nutrition Answers can put you on the fast track to reach your goals, whatever they may be, quickly and efficiently.
If you feel as if you have tried EVERYTHING, let us show you the difference by working
WITH your DNA instead of against it.
