Personalising your approach to looking after your health
DNA testing and its benefits
Gut testing and what to look for
The best diet for you is the one that you can stick to.
A really sensible way of looking after your health is to personalise it.
The one-size-fits-all approach to health is very outdated. We are very unique individuals, each with an entirely unique set of DNA. Our microbiome is extremely, extraordinarily unique to us, and it changes all the time.
The proliferation of certain bacteria or the absence of certain bacteria in the gut, or just a lack of diversity of bacteria contribute to lots of different chronic diseases.
Inflammation is a situation that not only damages our longevity but can also lead to a series of chronic diseases.
Personalise your approach to looking after your health.
Consider following a diet or a nutrition plan based on two things: your DNA profile and your gut health.
Take broad strokes advice and listen to what’s worked for people, particularly on the lifestyle side of things.
Get both DNA testing and gut testing done.
“On the dietary side, it is a very, very unique thing. So you need to create a programme that is achievable, enjoyable, and very, very personal to you.”
“The type of diet that’s best for you is one that’s based on your DNA and one that takes into account real-time changes in the body.”
