Regenerative Wellbeing have partnered with Myogenes to offer our patients the latest in genetic testing. We can provide invaluable insights into your own unique, individual genetic makeup.
Learn what nutrition your body will respond to best for a personalised wellness plan based on your DNA sequence. All you need is a bit of saliva.
How does the Myogene health and wellbeing test help?
This highly educational test will help you choose the right diet and exercise plan for your best self.
What does the health and wellbeing test tell you?
By looking at your DNA, you learn:
- The micro-and macro-nutrients needs of your body.
- How you respond to alcohol, coffee and lactose.
- How well your muscles work and what sports would be good for you.
- If you might be affected by things like weight gain, cholesterol, weak bones or high blood sugar.
- If you’re likely to age quickly or not.
Are the results simple?
Yep, you’ll get an 80+ page book telling you everything you need to know about your lifestyle and diet including how your body processes nutrients, if you’re prone to diseases, if you are prone to missing key nutrients, how your metabolism is working, your stress response and you’ll get example foods and exercises that benefit your genes.
Our Hereditary Cancer Test, designed for anyone at any age, allows you to find out your risk levels and manage your health proactively.
What is the Hereditary Cancer Test?
This test helps you identify mutated genes that are associated with cancer. This includes breast, ovarian, prostate, stomach, neck & head and colon cancer. Overall, 25 hereditary cancers are scanned for.
How does a Hereditary Cancer Test work?
We just need a saliva sample. That gets analysed and you get a report on any increased cancer risk you might have. We study 98 genes associated with increased risk for breast, ovarian, prostate cancer and 21 more hereditary cancers. This will provide you with a detailed report that you can discuss with your GP or alternatively you can have a consultation with our in-house GP to gain information for your treatment plan.
Who should have a Hereditary Cancer Test?
Anyone over the age of 18. Even if you’re healthy. Why? Because knowing about your risk provides you options you won’t have overwise. We really recommend a test for specific groups too, like:
- Ashkenazi Jewish descent
- If your family has a history of cancer
- If a family member has had cancer before 50
- If a family member has had a rare form of cancer like ovarian, triple-negative breast cancer etc.
- If you already have a cancer diagnosis and want to understand your risks
The Hereditary Breast & Ovarian Cancer Test looks for BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes which are found in around 50% of families who experience breast and ovarian cancer.
How does a Hereditary Breast & Ovarian Cancer Test work?
By looking for the specific genes in your saliva sample, we’re able to tell you if you are at increased risk for ovarian or breast cancer.
As well as looking for BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes it also looks for PALB2 which has nearly as high of a risk, plus mutations in 13 other genes. ATM, BARD1, BRCA1, BRCA2, BRIP1, CDH1, CHEK2, NBN, NF1, PALB2, PPM1D, PTEN, RAD51C, STK11, TP53.
