Epigenetics is the study of how lifestyle and environment factors can change the structure of your DNA.
This is a combination of nature and nurture. Whilst you are born with a unique set of genes, your lifestyle and environment can cause certain genes to be turned off or turned on.
What you eat, where you live, who you interact with, when you sleep, how you exercise, even ageing – all of these can eventually cause genes to be turned on or off over time. Additionally, in certain diseases such as cancer or Alzheimer’s, some genes will be switched into the opposite state, away from the normal, healthy state.
Even though we are all human, why do some of us have blonde hair or darker skin? Why are some of us more sociable than others? The different combinations of genes that are turned on or off is what makes each one of us unique. Furthermore, there is evidence to show that some epigenetic changes can be inherited.
With 20,000+ genes, what will be the result of the different combinations of genes being turned on or off? The possible arrangements are enormous! But if we could map every single cause and effect of the different combinations, and if we could reverse the gene’s state to keep the good while eliminating the bad… then we could theoretically cure cancer, slow ageing, stop obesity, and so much more.
We use epigenetic indicators, such as biological age to show you how stress is impacting your DNA health today and how to avoid future risk of Heart Disease and more tomorrow.
Our dedicated team of doctors and practitioners will work with you to help you optimise your health outcomes by lowering stress.
Measure how these changes improve your health over time with the world's first repeatable DNA test.
Chronomics can support you in reducing your stress and continuing to enjoy doing what you love.
Only 30% of us get at least 8 hours of uninterrupted sleep per night. Regular poor sleep puts you at risk of serious medical conditions, including obesity, heart disease and diabetes – and it shortens your life expectancy. We can help you understand if you're getting enough sleep to stay healthy.
38% of us do not get enough exercise. We can help you find out if your routine is enough for you and work with our experts to improve it.
Stress, whether physical stress or mental stress, has been proven to cause changes in blood sugar levels which can be a problem for people with diabetes. We can help you to see if too much stress is putting your health at risk.
Healthy social relationship are important for all round health, but excess alcohol and late nights can be bad for your health. Find out if you have the right social balance.
Outdoor air pollution - even at levels deemed safe - can lead to an increased risk of diabetes. Chronomics can analyse your exposure to smoke and pollution to show if it's putting your health at risk.
75% of us don't eat enough fruit and veg. We can help you learn how your diet is affecting your DNA and optimise your nutrition.
