The Key to your Future Health is in your Genes
Why not find out your genetic susceptibility to various common diseases? Thanks to our genetic predisposition health testing service you can find out. Personalized health care tailored to your genetic needs is now a reality. You can now be in charge of your health, working towards managing and developing a lifestyle that will be effective in reducing your health risks to certain diseases. A genetic predisposition health test is what will enable you to do just this.
Discover your genes & actively manage your wellbeing
Countless of the thousands of diseases we know are genetic. Deep within your genes you could be a carrier of a particular gene mutation that codes for anything ranging from cancer to obesity to Alzheimer’s and many more. Whilst in the past, it would have been impossible to discover whether you carry these genes and thus, have an elevated chance of developing the disease, today it is possible to determine whether or not you have any of these gene mutations.
Our genetic health test will tell you just how likely it is that you will develop any of over 25 diseases over the course of your life. For just CAD 345 you can find out your genetic susceptibility. We will have your results ready in 14-19 working days.
Why would I want to know?
- Because ignorance is not always bliss. A genetic health test is what will ultimately enable you to make the best lifestyle choices. By making the lifestyle choices based upon the results of a genetic health test you can actually mitigate your risks of developing the condition. This applies to anything from prostate cancer, diabetes, breast cancer and many more. What about lung cancer? Not all smokers develop lung cancer although the correlation between the two is very strong. But imagine you do find out you have a high genetic predisposition: Do you really need a better excuse to stop and ditch the habit?
- Wouldn’t it help to know that you are genetically predisposed to obesity? This would enable you to get appetite management tips and ideas from a nutritionist, possibly saving yourself obesity and the many diseases that come with it. Proper health management is the key to your improved health. A genetic health test can help towards disease prevention.
- The hereditary aspect is also significant: so you have a history of cancer in the family? Perhaps prostate or breast cancer? Does it worry to think that you might develop the cancer in question as well? Then a genetic health test could put your mind at rest by telling you that your risk of developing the hereditary form of the disease is very low or nonexistent.
Our results will assess just how likely you are of developing one of the 25 diseases we test for. For the results to be meaningful and useful, we strongly recommend they consult with a specialist pre and post test. A specialist can help you come up with a life-long health plan to suit your genes and complement your health. This is a very important point that we do tend to stress for all our clients, given the health significance of this genetic health test.

Immune System diseases: There are a number of diseases that affect our immune system. Often these autoimmune conditions results in the body reacting against itself which can result, depending on the type of disease, in very unpleasant symptoms. With these diseases, the body is incapable of distinguishing substances and molecules that are foreign to the body with those that are part of it. The body thus, reacts by attacking itself and producing antibodies, in much the way as it would with a foreign body such as a virus.
- Graves' disease
- Celiac disease
- Multiple sclerosis

Cancers: Cancers are essentially caused by the over multiplication and uncontrolled growth of cells. The growth continues to increase in size and mass or even metastasize, spreading beyond the point of origin and affecting other organs. Our health genetic test will tell you whether you are genetically predisposed to a number of cancers, including breast cancer and prostate cancer. With cancer especially, early detection hugely increases the chances of successful treatment
- Bladder cancer
- Breast cancer
- Colorectal cancer
- Gastric cancer
- Lung cancer
- Prostate cancer
- Skin cancer
