Have you ever experienced depression, anxiety, weight gain, low energy, sluggish detox (which can cause brain fog amongst other things)?
All of these symptoms and many more, could be the related to your genetics.
I am going to explain how some simple vitamins and nutrients, (when taken in a targeted way) can affect how your genes are expressed, and transform how you feel.
But, on the other hand. If you are taking the wrong supplements for your gene type. The consequences could be dire...
I understand this may sound like a big statement, and you could even be feeling sceptical, or wondering, why have I not heard about this before?
If this is the first time you have heard about it, I promise that you will be hearing a lot more.
This is the future of health, and the future has arrived.
Personal health solutions or personalised medicine.
Hi, my name is Amanda Ledwith and I have been involved in the health industry for 15 years, a decade of which I have been working as a qualified Naturopath.
I have owned my own business for the last five years, and have consulted with thousands of clients during that time.
I had heard a little about the discoveries around genetics and health, and was really interested to learn more...
But, it was only when I had my own Genetic profile done, that I began to see the power in having this information.
I was blown away by what I had discovered in my genes!
First of all, I had always really struggled with detoxification.
I liked the idea of detox, but it would make me feel terrible. I would really get knocked around, and could barely get out of bed.
Now I knew detox wasn’t going to be the most comfortable thing, but this was ridiculous!
I found, that I have a deficiency in my body’s ability to metabolize Vitamin B12 and Glutathione, both key nutrients required by the liver to effectively detoxify.
Glutathione is very important for Phase II detoxification (breaking toxins down further so that your body can start to eliminate them).
So what this means for me is that my body struggles to break these particles down and so instead of them being eliminated, they are circulating around in my blood stream causing terrible unwanted symptoms.
I also have a mutation in my COMT gene, which means that my body has difficulty metabolizing estrogens, including those nasty xenoestrogens.
This has caused me hormonal imbalances and skin complaints over the years. The long term effects of this gene mutation can even be cancer causing.
After discovering this, I was able to adjust my diet and supplement with some simple nutrients.
This allowed my body to detoxify properly, and prevent toxins from building up, which would have lead to far greater problems down the road.
I had my energy back which was amazing, but the best thing... I could think clearly!
The sluggish toxic metabolism had lead to a sneaky brain fog, and I hadn’t noticed how bad it had gotten until it was gone.
It felt so incredible to be mentally sharp again!
Something else that blew me away, was how the results allowed me to take a glimpse into my possible future...
The main areas it showed, as my areas of genetic weakness, are the exact areas of health I see my parents struggling with now.
This allowed me to make a few dietary changes, so I can move into the future, knowing my body has what it nutritionally needs...
...all the while, stacking the odds in my favour.
Once I saw it, and really ‘got it’ myself, I knew it was my responsibility to get this information out.
This is why I decided as a practitioner to start doing the genetic health testing with my clients.
My personal story is only the tip of the iceberg…
It’s for this reason, there has never been a better time to have this testing done.
And because your genetic imprint doesn’t change, you will only ever have to do this test once!
Now your genes don’t change, but by providing your body with the right nutrients and lifestyle...
...you are able to effect how your genes are expressed.
This is an emerging area of scientific research known as Nutritional Genomics or “Nutrigenomics”... as well as “Epigenetics”.
This looks at our ability to upregulate or downregulate genes through nutrition, as well as enviromental factors, such as stress.
Therefore, effecting how these genes are “ expressed”.
Like me you may be carrying an excess load of toxins due to your methylation pathways, not functioning as they should.
And as a result, you are exhausted all the time.
Or perhaps you are struggling to manage your weight, and seems no matter what you try, the weight won’t shift.
Well the answer to this could be in your genes also.
Do you see how much of what you have been experiencing has been beyond your control?
And so, is not your fault...
Now allow me to explain further, how this information can change your life...
One area of genetic health that has received a lot of media coverage recently, is a genetic mutation known as, MTHFR.
The MTHFR gene is responsible for 3 very important functions in your body:
1. The conversion of Vitamin B9 (folic acid) into a form that is more easily used by the body.
2. The conversion of Homocysteine into Methionine, which is needed for growth and repair.
3. Detoxifying heavy metals and other toxic wastes.
A mutation in this gene can cause a deficiency in most of the B group vitamins, leading to increased feelings of...
...stress, anxiety, depression, insomnia, low energy, dry skin, migraines, miscarriage and more.
45-50% of the population can have been found to have a mutation in the MTHFR gene.
The FTO gene is associated with feelings of fullness after eating.
If you have a mutation in this gene then you may experience a difficulty in feeling full or satisfied after eating which makes you prone to over eating.
The FTO gene also effects whether weight loss is improved by eating a high protein diet.
There are so many diets out there, but why do some people benefit more than others?
It depends on your genes!
For me for example, my FTO gene indicates that I do not benefit from a high protein diet.
This doesn’t mean that protein is not important, but a moderate level compared to a high daily protein intake is more beneficial for me.
Part of what this incredible testing looks at is what is the best form of exercise for you. This is known as your “Physiogenomic Analysis”.
What does this mean?
It is looking at things like your power to endurance ratio.
World class athletes are beginning to use this very type of testing. This lets them focus on their genetic strengths in training.
Now I understand you are probably not looking to become the next Usain Bolt...
...But imagine knowing what the best type of exersise is for you and why!
With this data you can know you are maximising your exercise, and putting your time into what will benefit you the most.
If the testing shows you lean more towards the power end of the scale, you may benefit greatly from activities such as weights or sprints.
If you genetically favour endurance, this could lend it self to running, cycling or perhaps swimming.
And of course you could be a balance of both, in which case your genetic advantage could lie in crosstraining type activities.
Another area we will look at is inflammation.
If you are the kind of person who feels exhausted for days after physical activity, when those around you seem to bounce back effortlessly.
You are not lazy and unfit...
...you could very well need greater time to recover.
Inflammation can wreak havoc in many ways.
But... knowing you are genetically prone, can reap huge long term rewards.
There are simple changes we can make in your diet, that will eliminate this type of chronic inflammation at the source.
I believe this alone makes it worth having yourself tested.
Do you see how important and empowering having this kind of personal data can be?
It is the closest thing you have to a crystal ball for your future health.
But here’s the best part…
...You can take control!
When you provide personalised nutrition, based on your genomic profile, and your body has access to the nutrients it genetically needs....
You typically age more slowly, feel less stressed, experience a higher quality of life and suffer less with unhealthy conditions.
A simple saliva sample will be tested to cover 100 DNA changes.
Now I have to tell you...
Recently I have heard stories of people who have had this testing done, only to receive the raw data with no ongoing support or plan.
Paying double what I charge for the privilege.
This simply doesn’t make any sense to me.
Without the right plan and support in place, many people get overwhelmed and do nothing.
Wasting there time and hard earned money!
I don’t want this to happen to you.
Which is why, as part of this package...
I will include two consultations with me to go over your genetic profile, and put together a step by step personalised wellness plan for you, based on your results.
I AM NOW FEELING GREAT!
After doing the Genomic Wellness Test with Amanda I was surprised to find out that I have a high genetic risk of Coeliac disease. I had not been checked for Coeliac but had been suffering a range of digestive problems for years.
After following Amanda’s recommendations and totally removing gluten from my diet I started to feel lighter and less bloated very quickly.
I also loved the exercise information in relation to what suits my body best, and having a quick recovery, which has allowed me to tailor my workouts.
I am now feeling great!
Your genetic profile does not change.
So this will be a document you can always refer back to in your journey to abundant health.
It will be your greatest tool in fine tuning your genetic expression and maximising your health and wellness now and into the future.
Imagine knowing exactly what foods and supplements you need and why.
The opportunity to reduce your risks of being unwell in the future and maximise your opportunities to feel your absolute best now.
If you have been dealing with anxiety, stress or exhaustion..
Simply by providing your body with the nutrients it genetically needs, you could see these symptoms vanish.
I understand that may sound hard to believe.
But what you need to understand, is that when your body has what it nutritionally needs to function optimally, you are creating an enviroment in which you can thrive, both physically and mentally.
MANY THANKS AMANDA!
Having had of variety of minor health issues culminating in Leaky Gut Syndrome I decided to undergo a Genomic Test. The main reason was to see if it could also help my children with their health.
I have to say the results showed me the reasons for my problems therefore pointing the way for major improvements. The test replaces guessing with knowing.
I have been working with Amanda for six months on a specific diet tailored to my genetic profile and though I am 77 years of age, have seen major improvements in my health. One of my daughters seems to be following my pattern of symptoms so I am able to guide her from my results. She is also improving.
Many thanks Amanda!

CUTTING EDGE SCIENCE AND HELPS TO FILTER OUT THE DAY TO DAY DIETARY/LIFESTYLE INFORMATION OVERWHELM.
The Genomic Wellness Test was sure worth the expense and totally justifiable from my initial hesitation. The test itself was comprehensive and extremely informative, providing a 'big picture' map.
Amanda was thorough in her interpretation of the results as well as supportive in her recommendations. It is fascinating, cutting edge science and helps to filter out the day to day dietary/lifestyle information overwhelm.
It sure sets the tone for the future, be it affirming of your current choices or an incentive to improve yourself with clear direction and courage.
I FOUND IT HUGELY VALUABLE. THANK YOU SO MUCH AMANDA AND TEAM!
I had a Genomic Wellness test done by Amanda at PranaThrive and it was great to get detailed information on my DNA.
I was interested to find out whether my choice of eating a vegetarian diet was good for my body, as I know sometimes certain blood types react differently to diet. So with this test I was able to get confirmation on this.
I also found out that short endurance exercise was complimentary to my gene type. The test also provided me with a huge amount of detailed information so I can make educated choices on what compliments my health and what doesn't.
I found it hugely valuable. Thank you so much Amanda and team.
