Obesity or excess weight is one of the common challenges many people are facing today. Obesity is a medical condition wherein the body has accumulated so much fat leading to a negative impact on a person’s health, causing a plethora of serious medical problems like increased risks of cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, hypertension and much more.
When considering weight loss it is very important to understand why it is very difficult for some people to easily lose it while others face lots of difficulties? The reason is hidden in your genes. Different individuals have differing tendencies of converting calories into fat. Some individuals may convert carbohydrates into fat; others may convert fat in food into body fat or, worse still, both. All this is governed by the genes of every individual.
At Genetic Healing, we unlock the potential of information hidden in your genes and use it to prepare a personalized nutrition plan. Our Slim Genomics panel has been decisively devised to assess the genes associated with the underlying biological process governing the weight gain or loss mechanism.
The results obtained from the test panel will help in providing you a detailed personalized recommendation which will include the following:
A rigorous selection process is utilized when selecting genes for the test; only the most scientifically relevant genes are considered, and only those where a lifestyle intervention can modify the effect of the gene, are included. As the study in the field continues and better insights will be available, more genes will be added to our panel making the testing more robust and effective.
Some health experts predict that the next big advance in helping overweight people achieve a healthier weight will be to use an individual’s genetic data to customize diets and physical activity plans, an approach known as ‘precision weight loss.”
As little as 10 minutes of high-intensity physical activity per day reduces the amount of adipose tissue and enhances cardiorespiratory fitness in 6-8-year-old children, according to a new study. The higher the intensity of physical activity, the stronger the association with the amount of adipose tissue. Exchanging sedentary behavior — mainly sitting — for even low-intensity physical activity reduces the amount of adipose tissue. In order for physical activity to enhance cardiorespiratory fitness, the intensity needs to be at least moderate.
Weight-management programs, including those for children and seniors, stress education – not just for the people facing weight issues, but for their families, too – and long-term commitment to changed habits in addition to healthier diet and exercise practices.
Extending NHS weight loss programs from one session per week for 12-weeks to one session per week for a year helped people who are overweight to lose more weight and keep it off for longer, according to a new study.
I took the Weight Loss test from genetic Healing. I happened to find you on the internet when I was desperately looking for an easy and sure shot way of losing weight after failing on many other fronts, like diet + gym, protein diet + ayurvedic medicines, and gym (with a trainer) and diet. Using all of these methods, I did lose weight, however, the weight loss came with a new health issue every time. This changed my focus on the health issue. Due to changed focus, I gained weight again.
The Weight Loss test I took was more out of curiosity as to how my genes affected my weight. The process was smooth and professional. The dietician assigned to me explained about my genes and their effects. This explained why I remained overweight and why I had a tendency to gain weight. She gave me a diet plan suiting my lifestyle and it worked wonders for me! I started losing weight with little efforts on diet control and she continuously encouraged me and changed the diet plan as needed, which helped me further to continue the weight loss.
Also other associated parameters improved with time and weight loss. I lost 14 kgs in just 6 months which I believe wouldn’t have been possible with other methods. I was not on any fad diet and was enjoying my health too. I have set my goals for the year 2017 and I am sure that with knowledge about my genes, I will achieve them. Thanks a lot, Genetic Healing.
I’d like to add that the vast majority of people are really unaware that such a technology and tests exist. Also the dieticians in hospitals and health clubs and gym are not aware of this. Surprisingly enough, many doctors are unaware of this field which I believe is a foolproof way to achieving long lasting health. I can say this is a breakthrough and cutting edge technology available for health improvement and should reach as many people as possible for them to reap the fruits of this insight.
It's a wonderful experience and i loved it. I have lot of difference in my weight .
Nutrigenomics was a wonderful experience for me, having many complex health issues like overweight my weight from 84 kg since last 4 years and not reduced after many efforts bally fat was always making me uncomfortable and affecting my look and working lifestyle due to dyspnea, having Type 2 diabetes and insulin intake 20 unit in before breakfast and 16 unit before dinner, which is reduced at 14 unit in before breakfast and 12 unit before dinner. I reduced weight around 76 kg. Having managed lifestyle and implementing the diet, exercise as advised by diet counselor. I strongly recommending Nutrigenomics for all.
Doctors are believed to be life saver, that’s what they do. Nutrigenomics is an emerging science and before starting any tests we took their opinion about Genetics and Nutrigenomics, as we believe anything should be done only if we need it and same is applicable for ‘A Genetic test’. Doctors believe that genetics is the root cause of most of health issues we have. So here are some of their opinions.
1) “The same dietary advice cannot be good for everyone, because we are all different; this is why we have failed so miserably at controlling the obesity epidemic.” – Eran Elinav, an immunologist at the Weizmann Institute of Science in Rehovot, Israel.
2) “Diet–gene interactions are highly complex and hard to predict, thus demonstrating the need for highly controlled genotypes and environmental conditions that allow for identifying different regulatory patterns based on diet and genotype. The challenges we now face may ultimately require a Nutrigenomics project on the scale of the Human Genome Project in order to identify genes that cause or promote chronic disease and the nutrients that regulate or influence the activity of these genes.” – Dr. Jim Kaput, FDA National Centre for Toxicological Research
3) “The new science of Nutrigenomics provides vital clues to new tools available for promoting good health and preventing and treating disease.” – Dr. Christine Houghton
4) “The implication here is that anyone with this genotype should be rigorously attentive to their diet and lifestyle, these individuals should avoid smoking and alcohol while undertaking exercise and eating a diet low in saturated fat. Nonetheless, at present, very few people are aware of their APOE genotype.” – Dr. Ferguson. “
Genetic Healing is one of the pioneer companies in India, working to makes lives better using genes based personalized nutrition. The main backbone of our high-end services is the expert team we house. With years of experience in the field of Nutrigenomics, our experts – Dr. Geeta Dharmatti and Dr. R.D.

Our genetic test involves a simple saliva or blood test. For this, you can choose to either visit our center or share your address with us to undertake doorstep delivery of the sample collection kits. The sample collection process is very easy; you just need to follow the basic steps mentioned on the kit. Once the sample is collected it is taken back to our lab and processed further. The results take a few weeks after which a detailed genetic report is prepared by our team. The report explains your diet plan and lifestyle modifications, which are followed by counselling by our experts.
