BodhiGen is the world's most advanced, comprehensive and effective nutrition and wellness programme available and is widely regarded as the gold standard of Nutritional Therapy and biomarker analysis.
The highly personalised programmes that BodhiGen creates can help you age well, lose weight more effectively, work towards your health goals, support the management of chronic health conditions and promote greater levels of physical and emotional wellbeing.
BodhiGen uses comprehensive biomarker testing to gather as much information about your body as possible. This data is used to create a nutrition and wellness programme that is completely tailored to your individual biology.
BodhiGen looks at your genetic blueprint, but not in isolation - just because you have particular genetic variation, this does not mean that this variation is having an impact on your health. To see how your genes may be effecting you, BodhiGen uses a detailed consultation process as well as additional biomarker testing to overlay your genetic test results.
Your genes are not the only factor that can affect your health and wellbeing. BodhiGen also looks at all of the other factors that can have a positive and negative effect on the body including diet, lifestyle, health history, family history, environmental factors and the results of additional comprehensive functional testing.
We are currently the only genetic testing provider in Europe that thoroughly investigates gene expression and these important additional factors when creating programmes and making recommendations. No other test offers a scientifically valid wellness analysis of your genetic data.
The process starts with an initial consultation during which we will look at your diet, past health, present health, family history and other important factors.
Using this information, we will then create the first phase of your programme which tailors your diet to your needs and helps you reduce or eliminate harmful foods such as sugar and highly processed food.
The collection of your raw genetic data requires a simple saliva sample. The sample is sent to a laboratory which collects the raw genetic data for us to analyse.
We also do additional biological testing which looks at your nutritional status and a large number of other significant biomarkers. These tests require a urine sample and blood draw. You can find out more about the additional functional testing we analyse alongside your genetic data here.
It takes around 5 hours to complete the analysis of your test results, sometimes longer, depending on the complexity of your case.
Once the analysis is complete, we will organise a consultation – at the Bodhimaya Clinic or via Skype, to take you through the results and your unique BodhiGen Programme.
It takes 5 weeks to process the results and create your unique BodhiGen programme.
BodhiGen will give you a detailed understanding of how your body is functioning and identify genetic as well as other factors that may be affecting your health and wellbeing.
BodhiGen does not look at disease risk. BodhiGen will NOT tell you which diseases you will get. BodhiGen looks at your biological data from a purely functional perspective to help us determine your bodies nutritional and dietary requirements. You can find out more about disease risk here
Once we have gathered all of the information we need our experts will analyse the data and produce a set of dietary, supplement and lifestyle recommendations. Your unique BodhiGen programme will show you exactly what type of diet to follow – what foods and supplements work with your body and what foods and supplements work against it. This will include an easy-to-follow list of foods that we suggest to eat liberally, moderately or limit, along with and a sample three-day meal plan and portion structure showing you how to integrate your food list into your diet.
BodhiGen will give you insight and recommendations to help support the following areas:
EMOTIONAL AND PHYSICAL WELLBEING
THE HEALTH OF THE IMMUNE SYSTEM
THE MANAGEMENT OF CHRONIC HEALTH ISSUES
FAMILY HEALTH ISSUES
