our happy clients
As an avid cyclist and all-round fitness fundi, finding a legal competitive edge to enhance my performance is always welcomed. I recently took the DNAlysis series of tests, with my main interest being the Sport and Health one to really get to know myself and my abilities even better. From the onset I was very open to the results that would come back and curious to see if the current perception of my performance actually matched my genetic makeup and if I could push myself, even more, knowing what I am actually capable of. The results are so detailed that they are able to tell you whether your exercise regime should be more endurance or more strength based.
It was great to have affirmation that how and when I am training is correct for my body type and the diet results have challenged me to focus more on having more of a “Mediterranean diet” to better fuel my engine. For every competitive athlete or even those individuals wanting to lose a bit of weight this personalized, detailed and factual analysis of one’s DNA using the latest technology is the ultimate choice to give you an advantage and I look forward to the cycling community embracing this test and riding themselves even harder.
As specialist dieticians we have treated over 5000 clients at our clinics. We are always updating our programs in accordance with the latest approaches in nutrition. The DNA diet test confirms in many instances what we have suspected all along. Clients who have applied the DNA diet test results in their eating and exercise plan have seen significantly better results than those who are on conventional kilo-joule restricted eating plans. We are using the test in: Patients who struggle to lose weight, especially those with a history of yo-yo dieting and fad diets. General weight loss from 3kg and more. Maintenance eating plans. The DNA test is the ID of who you are regarding eating and exercising. Thus avoiding certain foods and exercising according to your genetic results proves to be the ultimate maintenance guideline
Running my own private practice, Munchwize, as a registered dietitian in Cape Town – I found it’s essential to equip yourself with all the tools possible in order to help your clients to ensure they achieve their own health goals. Having the expertise and ability to implement DNA tests as a tool, has been an amazing progression in technology and it feels like it’s the missing link that has bridged the gap to really personalising health and nutrition. I’m so excited to be a part of this advancement and to have the opportunity to work with DNAlysis so that individuals have access to this incredible insight to obtain optimal health. All the tests offered: DNA Health, Diet, Sport and Oestrogen are extremely insightful and beneficial which have provided a foundation for individuals to motivate for concrete change within their lifestyle.
As a dietitian in private practice, DNAlysis has really helped me to give my patients a more personalized service. It takes out a lot of the guess work so that you can concentrate on the underlying problems from the start, rather than taking weeks of trial and error to produce the desired results. It is so nice to know the risks associated with your DNA and know how you can decrease your risks. If I could, I would do a DNAlysis test for every single one of my patients.
I have been using the DNA diet kits for almost 2 years now with great success. Using DNA diet as one of the tools for weight management is beneficial both for me and my client. Most of the weight loss clients have been on many diets before. DNA diet results will provide the client with their personal genetic information with regards to weight management and as a practitioner I also find the test very effective in giving me clear guidelines on the treatment protocol with regards to diet and exercise. I have seen great success in this regard. As a scientist I have spent many years on research and it is therefore essential to me that using a test, screening tools or dietary information in my practice, that it is backed by scientific evidence. This was indeed one of the key factors why I started to use the DNA kits in my practice. The accreditation course and all the information provided is always supported by sound scientific evidence.
My name is Danielle Hambloch, I am a registered dietitian with the Health Professions Council of South Africa. I am currently doing my masters through the University of Bloemfontein with the focus on Nutrigenomics. I am also accredited with DNALYSIS, and have worked with the genetic testing, specifically the DNA Diet test. I have found the tests to be very useful in my practice, and have had outstanding results with regards to successful weight loss and healthy lifestyle changes. In certain instances, clients have tried numerous diets and have had no success, and through the genetic testing they are not only achieving successful weight loss but are also able to maintain the lifestyle change.
We have been using the dna diet test since the launch in March 2010. As specialist dieticians it has brought a new meaning to the concept of tailor made eating plans. Results from the gene profile analysis gives us information regarding the types of foods to restrict as well as foods to include that will benefit a healthy weight loss. It is our experience that persons on the dna diet have better results than on conventional diet treatments.
Patient J Van Niekerk has struggled to lose weight for many years. We did the DNA diet test on him and the results confirmed that he must avoid high GI carbohydrates and saturated fats. He lost 4 kg in the first 2 weeks and his acne and eczema is clearing up. He hopes to lose 20kg in 16 weeks. We will keep you updated.
I want to share my pleasantly surprising experience with a rather distinctive, unique and quite innovative company call DNAlysis Biotechnology, based in Illovo, Sandton, South Africa. I have the pleasure of being associated with a staff member who introduced me to the exclusive range of DNA tests they perform, and how the results can be interpreted to aid your well-being, characterized by prescribing treatment of the whole person, taking into account physical, mental and social factors, rather than just the symptoms.
In my particular case, I have a chronic condition needing daily medication, and my DNA report assisted my doctor to determine that one specific medication I was on, was not best suited for my body, and changed to one that beneficially metabolizes.
From being initially slightly sceptical, I can now highly recommend this distinguished company, DNAlysis Biotechnology, if you truly want to take your well being to another level.
I had reached a stage with my weight, where I thought I was eating and doing all the right things: avoiding the dreaded carbs, no sugars and exercising regularly, but despite this all, I just couldn’t lose the weight, not matter how hard I tried. The DNAlysis Diet test not only helped me identify which foods my body responded well to and those that it did not, it also identified the areas of concern, especially around with my eating habits such as my satiety levels, which I would have never considered.
I can honestly say the DNAlysis test, along with the help from my dietitian (Carly Seager), is the best thing I have ever done for ME. To date I have lost over 10kgs and continue to maintain this lifestyle change. My advice is simple: listen to the results, stick to the eating plan and you won’t regret it for a second.
