DNAlysis Nutrigenomic and Functional Testing.

An individualised  approach to health utilising the information obtained from analyzing our unique genetic code allows for a tailored approach to dietary and lifestyle interventions as well as personalised treatment plans. By analysing the functioning of a patient’s genes, health-optimisation and disease-prevention strategies can be implemented in a target-specific format. For further information on the nutrigenomic and functional testing offered, kindly contact Dr Norton’s practice via email.
