We are at the beginning of a genetic revolution. Nutrigenetics, nutrigenomics and epigenetics are emerging sciences that are going to have a huge impact on all our lives, an impact that will change the way we manage our health. We are at the forefront in the application of this emerging science in the field of nutrition.
Nutrigenomics is the study of how our genes interact with the food choices we make and the supplements we take. By comprehensively analysing your genetic data and applying the latest nutrigenomic research, we are able to build advanced and highly individualised nutritional programmes designed to optimise your health in the most effective way possible.
Many people think that genes are fixed and that we are set on an unalterable course of destiny, but in many cases, this isn’t true. Our genes can show our susceptibility to certain diseases but it is our lifestyle, diet, stress, trauma, toxins and many other factors that are the crucial factor in the development of illness and disease.
The truth is that our choices can affect the way our genes are expressed and knowing the secrets contained within our genetic data can enable us to make better choices. The adaptation of certain lifestyle factors can have a huge impact on our health and wellbeing, but understanding the right changes to make requires expert knowledge.
BodhiGen is an advanced genetic analysis that looks at our genetic data and sees how our genes could be effecting our health and wellbeing. Incorporating the latest scientific research and advances in nutrigentics, nutrigenomics and epigenetics, the wellbeing and rejuvenation programmes that we build from the BodhiGen analysis are the most advanced nutritional programmes available in the world today.
BodhiGen is designed to help you optimise your health via your diet, lifestyle and recommended supplements, allowing you to live in a way that respects your individual biology. The BodhiGen Advanced Genetic Analysis will show you exactly what type of diet to follow, what foods and supplements work with your body, what foods and supplements work against it and what kind of lifestyle is best for you. The BodhiGen Programme gives you the power to make choices that act in synergy with your unique genetic expression instead of against it.
Most genetic programmes use computer software to analyse data, but at Bodhimaya we use hours of human eye analysis by our nutritional team, giving us a much more accurate and meaningful picture of your health and wellbeing needs. This level of analysis is unprecedented, allowing us to accurately assess the complex interplay between your genes, diet, lifestyle and present health status. Being able to analyse and evaluate all of this information is crucial in the creation of an effective genetic rejuvenation programme. We look at hundreds of factors that can impact your health and wellbeing; detoxification, methylation, the endocrine system, cardiovascular health, inflammation, bone health, neurotransmitter imbalances, insulin regulation and hundreds of other areas are examined.
The BodhiGen analysis may identify certain risk factors, such as high cholesterol, low vitamin D and other imbalances, but it doesn’t give you an assessment of the likelihood that you will develop an illness based on your genetic data. While there are certain genes that do indicate a higher risk of certain diseases, in most cases things are not so clear cut. Your genes are not a prison of destiny, merely an indicator of susceptibility.
We can send you a kit anywhere in the world. This is then sent to a genetic testing facility, which collects the raw data and sends it back to us for detailed analysis. The head of our genetic programme, Daniel O’Shaughnessy, has undertaken an in-depth study of nutrigenomics and is one of only a handful of people on The British Association for Applied Nutrition and Nutritional Therapy’s Nutrigenetic Counsellor Register.
It takes six weeks to obtain the results and we then organise a consultation – in our clinic, on the phone or over Skype – to take you through your unique BodhiGen programme. You will receive three more consultations with your nutritionist, plus three months of email and phone support.
BODHIGEN GENETIC AND FUNCTIONAL TESTING
- Initial Consultation & 1 Follow Up
- Genetic Testing
We test for thousands of SNP’s (Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms / Genetic Variations) that may be affecting your health, wellbeing and the functioning of your body.
- Metabolic Analysis Profile
Metabolic Analysis assessment of 45 key organic acids relating to vitamin deficiencies, malabsorption, gut dysbiosis, cellular energy and mitochondrial metabolism, neurotransmitter breakdown and toxin exposure & detoxification requirement.
- Amino Acids Analysis
An analysis of nutritionally essential and non-essential amino acids and intermediary metabolites that show B vitamin requirement, and protein digestion & absorption support requirements.
- Essential & Metabolic Fatty Acids Analysis
Assessment of Omega 3, 6 and 9 Fatty Acids, Saturated Fatty Acids, Monounsaturated Omega 7 and Trans Fats. It also provides key ratios for understanding cardiovascular risk.
- Elemental Analysis
Evaluates nutrient status and toxic element exposure.
- Oxidative Stress
Oxidative Stress biomarkers highlight the body’s current state of oxidative stress and reserve capacity. Markers of oxidative injury assess cell membrane and DNA damage, while direct measurement of glutathione and CoQ10 provide insight into antioxidant reserve available to counter free-radical impact.
- Comprehensive analysis of the data taking around 8 hours
- A consultation to discuss the findings
- A Personalised wellbeing plan including food list, menu plan, portion structure and supplement recommendations
Testing compromises of Blood, Urine and Saliva.
