Why do a DNA Health Test?

DNA Health Test

Epigenetics Test

DNA & Epigenetics Test

Every human has between 20,000 and 25,000 genes. In most of us these genes are the same, but there are differences in less than one percent of them.  It is in that small percentage of difference that makes us all unique.

Understanding these differences, allows us to make choices on how we can affect and change our DNA to improve health and wellbeing.

Our tests provide you with an in-depth insight into your own unique DNA.

DID YOU KNOW

Research has shown that your genes affect how you respond to your surroundings and experiences.  Tiny variations can affect how your muscles form and behave, how your body uses the major food groups and whether you are likely to lack certain vitamins or minerals.

DNA Health is an innovative test that analyses your DNA to inform you what steps you should adopt to avoid potential health risks with a focus on what to do to improve your health and lifestyle.

Why do I need to be tested?

By being proactive and understanding your genes and susceptibility to health risks this test will provide you with information about your health and how changes to your lifestyle will positively impact you.

The DNA Health test can help you manage

  • genetic health risks,
  • reduce stress levels,
  • improve sleep quality
  • measure your internal age (with regular biological testing).

Your internal age is different to your chronological age, it is increased or decreased depending on how your lifestyle choices have affected your body and mind.

Symptoms

  • Fatigue
  • Loss of concentration
  • Weight issues
  • More frequent illnesses
  • Increased anxiety
  • Depression
  • Decreasing eyesight.

Treatments

Improvement of lifestyle, diet and health. This may include creating fitness regimes, diet plans and introducing supplements based on your body’s needs.

What does it involve?

Your saliva swab is sent to one of our laboratories in the post or dropped off at one of our designated pick up points.

Repeat tests?

Repeating tests throughout the healing process is beneficial to monitor progress and motivate a healthier lifestyle.

Why not NHS?

NHS does not usually offer DNA testing with such a wide range of analysis on people who have no obvious health problems, however by using this health kit you can minimise the risks of an unhealthy lifestyle before they pose a situation where you may need the NHS.

Do I need a GP?

A GP is always advised however, healthcare practitioners at Me and My Health are available by booking a consultation from the comfort of your own home.

What is the impact on my health?

Using this test will have no negative impacts on your health but may reveal certain lifestyle changes that could improve your lifestyle and health.

Why is it important for me to use this test?

Improvement of lifestyle can have a positive effect on other aspects of life, from mental to physical health. by identifying what is accelerating your biological age we can focus on maintaining a healthy balance of removing the accelerants and replacing them with healthier alternatives that fit in with your life.

The Me & My Health Epigenetic test focuses on genetic changes rather than changes to the DNA sequence. This shows your biological age and influences how susceptible you are to certain conditions which can be monitored and changed.

Epigenetics govern how behaviour and environment can change the way genes work. Looking at how your cells make certain proteins, or chemical caps which prevent DNA being read. Knowing which changes to make to your lifestyle and environment will affect your health for the better.

How do you determine epigenetic (biological rather than chronological) age?

As you age, your epigenome attaches to your DNA and tells it what to do. Each time it does this, it is said to have been ‘marked’. These marks don’t change the DNA sequence but they do change how cells read the DNA.

Methylation is one type of mark, and by identifying and tracking it, we can now get an idea of your genetic age. It can be likened to an instruction manual or cook book telling your body how to make things. For example, if your cells need to create fingernails they will look at the section of your DNA which tells it how to build fingernails. Although the ingredients don’t change over time, the recipe does.

As it changes, it marks the DNA – although the DNA sequence isn’t changed, its operating instructions are, as the epigenome alters the way cells read and use the DNA’s instructions. The genetic ingredients stay the same, but the epigenetic recipe book changes over time, as notes are made, steps skipped or added and pages fray and become harder to distinguish.

Epigenetic markers can also be passed on from cell to cell, and sometimes from parent to child. These epigenetic patterns can change with your environment or lifestyle patterns.

For example, if you are exposed to pollutants or start a new diet or exercise regime they may change for better or worse. The Me & My Health scientists can measure these patterns to determine your age. This means someone whose chronological age is 52 could be 37 or 63 inside, depending on their epigenetics.

Knowing your biological age shows a true reflection of your inner health and can vary from your chronological age.

Take action to reduce memory loss, hearing loss, losing your eyesight and your susceptibility to inflammation. Knowing the detail of this allows us to provide you the steps to living a longer healthier more fulfilling life.

Biological Age

Your biological age is a true reflection of your inner health and can vary from your chronological age. Discover your true age and find out ways to improve it so your inner self stays youthful.

Memory Age

There are ever increasing links between ageing and memory loss or more serious brain diseases such as Alzheimer’s and dementia. Taking steps to improve your memory will play an important part in our lives as we grow older.

Hearing Age

The difference between your genetic hearing age and chronological hearing age is calculated by taking the average methylation status of the genes associated with affecting your hearing for people within your age range.

Eye Age

Fundamentally, there are two main areas that we need to improve to try and reduce eye degeneration, which are inflammation and oxidisation. With both playing a crucial part in sustaining your eye health.

Inflammation

Inflammation can be somewhat of a double edged sword; in one instance it is required by the body to help promote tissue repair and recovery as well as fighting off nasty bugs and viruses.

The Benefits Of Epigenetics

Epigenetic science has been used by professional athletes all over the world. We are now in the privileged position of being able to offer it to everyone.

Understanding how your cells are ageing in relation to your chronological age is a discovery that could change your life for the better.

As a society we’re mostly concerned with outward appearance and neglect our inner health.

With the Me & My Health DNA & Epigenetics kit you can now uncover more about your inner health than ever before. Complement the findings with expert advice and you can alter your lifestyle and environment to help you be the healthiest you can be.
