People around the World are living longer. Between 2000 and 2050, the proportion of the World’s population over 60 years old will double from about 11% to 22%. This means an increase from 605 million to 2 billion in that time period!!
The number of 80 years olds and over will quadruple in that period.25%-30% of people aged 85 or older have some degree of cognitive decline, such as Alzheimer’s.
The biggest killers are hearty disease, stroke and chronic lung disease. The greatest causes of disability are visual impairment, dementia and osteoarthritis.
We all want to live longer and healthier lives and right now, we are in such a crucial period where we have the means to do exactly that. We can fight the ageing process, we have the ability to live much healthier lives than ever before and this, enjoy our elder years, feeling and looking youthful again.
Just imagine maintaining your hobbies throughout your 60/s, 70’s, 80’s and even 90’s!
Hitting that golf ball 200 yards sailing with your friends, skiing down the slopes, enjoying your ballroom dancing and having the energy and vigour to play with your kids and grandkids as you age….whilst still looking youthful with healthy glowing skin….
This can be achieved!!
Healthy ageing starts with healthy behaviours in the earlier stages of life. We can prevent and manage age-associated diseases. The quicker we take action, the better chance we have of ensuring a better quality of life. Men and women that invest in healthy ageing can expect a significant and economic return for themselves.
Dr. Anil will recommend specific blood tests and genetic tests(using a simple non-invasive swab test from the inside of your mouth). He will then personalize a treatment programme according to the results of these tests, ensuring any deficiencies are corrected.
Blood tests can either be done separately from genetic tests or ideally integrated into specific packages.
These are the genetic tests available to you:
Facts: Modern lifestyle has led a change in our lifestyle. A lack of time and low physical activity, mental stress and unbalanced diet have a direct impact on our health. Unadapted lifestyle associated with unfavourable genetic variations are at the origin of discomfort and diseases. Moreover, an additional consequence is accelerated ageing.
Who and when should be tested? Any person who wishes to take control of his/her health through long-term prevention.
Why the WELL-BEING Profile? This is an extended genetic test allowing the exploration of many metabolic pathways involved in cardio-vascular diseases, detoxification, mental fitness, skin health, weight control etc.
Results and interpretation: A comprehensive personalized insight into the health capacities based on genetic and non-genetic information. Detailed recommendations based on nutrition, micronutrition as well as lifestyle.
Additional information: Since the WELL-BEING Profile is a genetic analysis, it needs to be carried out only once in a lifetime. Required sample material is either a blood sample or a saliva sample.
Facts: Skin is one of the largest organs and it is the first and major barrier of protection. For physical and functional protection, the skin needs to be intact Injuries, pathogens, allergies, hormone levels, UV exposure, nutrition but also genetic factors influence the health state of the skin and may later tis appearance.
Who and when should be tested: Everyone who wishes to optimise his/her skin health.
Why SKIN Profile? Easy to carry out and innovative. Comprehensive results allow reducing disorders and optimising the skin appearance.
Results and interpretation: Allows the prevention of premature skin ageing through personalised nutritional and lifestyle recommendations including the most appropriate skin care regimes.
Additional information: Since the SKIN Profile is a genetic analysis, it needs to be carried out only once in a lifetime. Required sample material is either a blood sample or a saliva sample.
Facts:The degree of influence of diet on the balance between health and disease may depend on the genetic makeup of a person. The 12 selected genes of BASIC profile play an important role in several metabolic pathways such as lipid,carbohydfrate and homocystiene metabolism, inflammation and de-toxification processes.
Who and when should be tested: Like any preventative test, it may be performed as early as possible in case of: lipid, carbohydrate or homocysteine metabolism disorders, suspicion of lactose intolerance, suspicion of bad detoxification of xenobiotics/stimulants, chronic and inflammatory diseases.
Why BASIC profile: This is a “starter” preventative test. It gives 1st overview of genetic health capacities in order to prevent, attenuate or cure chronic diseases.
Results and Interpretation: This profile highlights one or more genes involved in one or more nutritional fields. According to the genotype, individual targeted dietary recommendations are provided.
Additional information: Since the BASIC Profile is a genetic analysis, it needs to be carried out only once in a lifetime. Required sample material is either a blood sample or a saliva sample.
Facts:Each person displays some individuals behaviour patterns and reacts differently to the environment in which that person lives. Thus, a person will be more or less resistant to external aggressions, will sleep well or less well, or will be active, passive, anxious, impulsive etc.
Who and when should be tested? Patients with mood disorders, anxiety or impulsiveness, sleep disorders, fatigue, suspicion of depression, impaired concentration, hyperactivity.
Why EMOTION Profile? It’s a preventative genetic test that analyses gene polymorphism related to brain neurotransmitters that can affect mood and behaviour and memory.
Results and Interpretation: Interprets genetic variations and gibes individual recommendations in terms of lifestyle and diet in order to improve mental well-being.
Additional information: Since the EMOTION Profile is a genetic analysis, it needs to be carried out only once in a lifetime. Required sample material is either a blood sample or a saliva sample.
Facts: Hormonal levels start to decrease with the menopause in women between 45-50 years of age. Hormonal replacement therapy(HRT) is often proposed. Badly adapted dosage of hormonal therapy can provoke an increased risk of sporadic breast cancer. Recent studies indicate that the oxidative metabolism of oestrogens can cause mutagenic DNA lesions.
Who and when should be tested? Women before taking HRT and women with a family history of breast cancer.
Why MENOPAUSE Profile: Easy to perform and innovative. Clear results allowing to choose the right treatment at the right dosage.
Results and Interpretation: Allows the determination of risk of adverse drug reactions associated with HRT. The test results indicate which treatment and dosage to choose to obtain the best response.
Additional information: Since the MENOPAUSE Profile is a genetic analysis, it needs to be carried out only once in a lifetime. Required sample material is either a blood sample or a saliva sample.
Facts: Hair loss usually sets in between the ages of 20 and 30 years. First symptoms are hair thinning and loss of the hair in the parietal, frontal and temporal areas. In the case of androgenetic alopecia, hair loss is irreversible.
Who and when should be tested: Men and women between the ages of 20 and 30 years with family history of androgenetic alopecia, preferably before the onset on any symptoms.
Why ALOPCIA Profile? Easy to carry out and innovative. Prevention is the only possibility to delay or to stop the premature development of androgenic alopecia. The profile demonstrated a distinction of 3 different alopecia risk groups.
Results and Interpretation: ALOPECIA Profile allows determining whether a minoxidil and /or finasteride treatments will be beneficial. The Profile provides nutrigenetic and lifestyle recommendations, which contribute to the prevention of androgenetic alopecia.
Additional information: Since the ALOPECIA Profile is a genetic analysis, it needs to be carried out only once in a lifetime. Required sample material is either a blood sample or a saliva sample.
Facts: The body weight is the sum of body fat(adipose tissues), lean body mass(tissue and muscles). skeleton, and water. Age, nutrition, physical activity, hormones and different diseases have a direct or progressive impact on our body weight. Genetic parameters also play a major role in the development of obesity, weight loss, or meagreness. Our lifestyle choices can affect these developments.
Who and when should be treated?Anyone who wishes to optimise his/her body weight.
Why WEIGHT Profile? Easy to carry out and innovative. It is focussed on genetic parameters involved in the development of overweight, obesity or excessive meagerness, and their interactions with lifestyle.
Results and Interpretation: Comprehensive results and recommendations to optimise body weight. Recommendations in nutrition and lifestyle are provided, allowing prevention or attenuation of weight disorders.
Additional information: Since the WEIGHT Profile is a genetic analysis, it needs to be carried out only once in a lifetime. Required sample material is either a blood sample or a saliva sample.
