Wellbeing DNA testing: DNA testing is the premium standard of preventative health care. Identify and investigate your genetic susceptibilities to disease and imbalance. This testing involves measuring genetic potentials that affect organ function (like MTHFR, Comt, DAO etc.) This gives us a snapshot into your liver, energy metabolism, hormone metabolism, vitamin D status, immune potential, cognitive function and so much more.

This gives us an idea of what the problem is systemically and if the imbalance is affecting essential processes in the body and the brain.
