DNA (gene-based health plans)

Personalised medicine bases on your genes

Your genes and DNA play a significant role in your health. In fact, your genes account for some 25-30% of your health and disease risk factors. Although most genes are the same in all people, there can be small genetic variations- the most common type being single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs). While most SNPs have no effect on cell function, others can affect the gene’s function, predispose you to disease, and contribute to individual differences in therapeutic responses.

Whilst you cannot change your DNA and SNPs, you can change the speed at which many of the enzymes they produce functions. A DNA assessment of your SNPs is an empowering tool to help predict your risk of developing diseases like diabetes, heart disease, mental health challenges and cognitive decline, as well as your susceptibility to environmental factors including lifestyle habits, stress levels, social world, diet, toxins and more.

Discover your genetic blueprint with our industry leading gene-based tests to proactively protect against predispositions to illness becoming reality. Equipped with the knowledge of any special needs related to your DNA, your IMI practitioner can recommend a tailored nutritional and lifestyle plan to help prevent disease and support your long-term health.

Analyse 3400 SNPs that may be influencing your health and wellbeing and reveal lifestyle and therapeutic recommendations that may influence a gene’s expression and function.

Unlike any other DNA test on the market, Genomic Insight™ uses the most advanced artificial intelligence searching all databases to allow your practitioner unique and up-to-date insight into your genomics. Using the Opus23 informatics platform, we can customize reports relevant to your needs by using an interactive dashboard that curates your genomic data, organised into categories: Methylation, Detoxification, Inflammation, Cognition and Mood, Anti-aging, Structural, Energy Metabolism, Cardio-Metabolic, Endocrine and Gastrointestinal.

This is the most comprehensive functional DNA test providing in-depth insight into the inherited influences on your health and wellbeing.

Cost: $4500

Determine your risk of developing certain chronic disease conditions by testing for specific gene variants.

The Nordic DNA test highlights specific metabolic pathways that may require extra support and indicates whether you may need to manage inflammation, oxidation or detoxification pathways. It provides an indication of the degree of susceptibility to carcinogens ingested in the diet, whether an individual is better able to reduce their cholesterol levels through diet (as opposed to through medication), and defines optimal requirements of key nutrients, minerals and vitamins for preventing genomic instability.

Detoxification and oxidative health risk methylation, lipids and cardiovascular health, and the risks of insulin and diabetes, osteoporosis, inflammation, and Alzheimer’s (APOE4) can also be explained on request.

Drawing on your results, your IMI practitioner can recommend a sustainable plan to optimise your health and wellbeing by personalising lifestyle and diet choices and, where necessary, use supplements tailored to offset any particular nutritional deficit based on your gene variants.

Cost: $3250

Sample Report

Test for 15 genes that impact your metabolism, insulin sensitivity, satiety and feeding tendencies. The detailed results include personalised recommendations for dietary changes and an exercise programme based on your genetic make-up.

Cost: $2550

Sample Report

Examine various biological areas that impact your training responsiveness and sporting performance. These include soft tissue and bone formation and remodelling; inflammation; oxidative stress; oxygenation influenced by blood flow and respiration; energy and fuel production; and metabolism during exercise. You can use your knowledge of gene variations that influence your key biological areas to exploit genetic advantages and identify weaknesses that need support through appropriate diet and training strategies.

Sample Report

Analyse variations on 18 genes that influence skin health and ageing: collagen formation, protection from SUN & UV exposure, inflammation, and protection from oxidative stress. With this insight, your IMI practitioner can provide personalised lifestyle, nutrition, nutraceutical and cosmeceutical recommendations for improved skincare and to decrease the visible signs of aging.

Cost: $2550

Sample Report

Test for gene variants that impact how your oestrogen is metabolised. The test report provides the level and effects of any identified genetic variants on oestrogen metabolism as well appropriate nutritional and lifestyle recommendations to support healthy oestrogen metabolism. This test is particularly beneficial for men or women with a strong family history of breast, ovarian, colon or prostate cancer; women who suffer from oestrogen-dominant conditions like endometriosis, premenstrual syndrome and uterine fibroid tumours, or are considering oral contraceptives, hormone replacement therapy, or IVF.

Cost: $2550

Sample Report

This comprehensive test includes.

  • Medcheck to study the relationship between your genes and your response to over 150 drugs
  • DNA Health to test for specific gene variants to understand the impact on your metabolic and biological processes and determine your risk of developing certain chronic disease conditions
  • DNA Sport to examine various biological areas that impact your training responsiveness and sporting performance
  • DNA diet to test for 15 genes that impact your metabolism, insulin sensitivity, satiety and feeding tendencies

Cost: $7550

In most cases, diseases or other problems do not have one single cause. They come from a combination of your genes, your lifestyle, and your environment. Epigenetics means ‘on top of’ genetics. It reveals which aspects of your choices and environment are directly impacting your health and putting you at risk of chronic illness. With this information gained from a simple saliva test, your IMI practitioner can recommend a personalized plan to support your long-term health and wellbeing.

Cost: $8500

Understand your health in detail and implement a personalized plan that holistically addresses your needs with IMI’s Diamond Package. These tests will provide a detailed analysis of your metabolism, potential nutritional imbalances, food intolerances and allergies, levels of pathogens, viruses, parasites and bacteria linked to gastrointestinal symptoms and disease, and your risk of developing certain chronic diseases. Working hand-in-hand with you, your IMI practitioner will create a holistic, long-term plan tailored to support your optimal health and wellbeing.

The package include:

  • IMI Blood Panel
  • GI360 / GI MAP
  • Great Plains Lab IgG
  • Nordic Lab DNA Health
  • Great Plains Lab OAT + Glyphosate

Cost: $18550
