Home DNA Test: Reasons to Take One

The topic of doing a home DNA test may not be something that comes up often in conversations, but it should. Geneway offers a pain-free home DNA test kit in South Africa that will teach you more about your genetic makeup and how you can adapt your lifestyle, diet and environment to live your healthiest life. There are great reasons why you should take a home DNA test:

Implement Informed Lifestyle Changes to Reduce Potential Risks

Genetic testing results provides people with the information that they need in order to live their lives to the best of their abilities. If you know for a fact that carbohydrates severely diminish your energy because your genes tell you this, you can make a massive difference and never suffer from that fatigue again.

If the genetic test reveals that you are genetically inclined towards high blood pressure and heart disease, you can make lifestyle changes to prevent it long before it becomes an issue. This will reduce the need for expensive, tedious treatments in the future. Prevention is always better than cure. With this insight into your body, you can become proactive and take the necessary steps to reduce your risks of multiple diseases in the future.

Home DNA test kits can also be used to test which medications work best for your body. Certain medications may prove harmful rather than beneficial according to your body. From the test results, you may be given advice on which medicines or supplements you can begin to take now to stave off any symptoms in order to live a long and happy life.

Gives You Much-Needed Peace of Mind

One of the main reasons many people decide to get a home DNA test is because they have family members that have illnesses and conditions that could likely be passed down. Having a family history of heart disease or certain cancers can be scary. But it could really put your mind at ease to know where you stand with it and whether your children might inherit the same diseases.

Again, knowing your status on certain illnesses can help you make lifestyle changes to alleviate symptoms or maybe even prevent the disease altogether. A genetic test can even reveal that you don’t have something that runs through your family history. This is the much-needed peace of mind many need to reduce stress.

Take any and all the GENEWAY™ tests available in order to gain the knowledge you need to better take care of yourself and your family. Contact us for more details.
