There are two types of genetic testing techniques: Predictive and Preventive.

Predictive Genetic Testing

  • Used to detect mutations associated with disorders that appear after birth, often later in life
  • Identify mutations that could increase a person's risk of developing disorders based on their genetic makeup, such as certain types of cancer

Preventive Genetic Testing

  • Used to identify certain gene mutations (single nucleotide polymorphism or SNPs) which are expressed in an unfavourable lifestyle environment
  • SNP intervention is used to successfully treat gene mutation with lifestyle changes, proper nutrition and vitamin and mineral supplementation
  • Modern genomics is based on personalised prevention. Although usually used to stop the development of age related degenerative diseases, disease prevention is recommended for young and old, and it is never too early to start

Dr. Sly Nedic (board certified by WOSAAM), uses a holistic approach in preventing age related degenerative diseases, where genetic testing plays a crucial role. By testing your gene, we know what to change in your environment and diet to prevent you from age related & detrimental disease.
