What are the benefits of a personalized DNA wellness check?
When your body is healthy and has access to the correct nutrients, it will age slower, feel less stressed, experience a higher quality of life and suffer less with unhealthy conditions. Following your results Sam will tailor a specific nutritional program for you, which is designed with preventative health strategies to be used for long- term health goals.
How do I get a test?
All you have to do is call or email the clinic to organize the collection of your saliva sample. The sample is then sent away to the laboratory for analysis, which usually takes 4-6 weeks. Sam will then go through the results with you in face-to-face or Skype consultation if you live outside of Christchurch.
