Decode your DNA with VLCC DNA Wellness
DNA for health and beauty with VLCC DNA Wellness
I am 29, and I am born into a Sardar family based in Delhi. My parents are active and healthy and we have no real health issues on each side. However, I do realise that we inherit patterns, predisposition for disease through our parents and their parents. Since Cancer appears in both sides, both my sister and I, must be watchful and vigilant.
I lead a fairly active life between workout sessions, commuting for meetings and a whole lot of work related travel. I workout consistently and I do my best to unwind over the weekend to avoid problems due to stress or an unhealthy lifestyle. I meditate daily and I take breaks from work, often. I do understand the impact of stressful lives on our health and know the role that genes play in our health and longevity as well.
Most of us lead such hurried and busy lives that we often neglect our health. I learnt about Gene testing and the pivotal role that it plays at helping you get healthy, a while ago. Although, I was fairy skeptical at first, the VLCC DNA test panels are an excellent measure for predictive and preventative health care for women. Competitively priced and painless, the platform is a great way for us to assess our risk factors based on our genes.
The first step to health is knowledge and ‘knowledge is power’. Knowing your risk factors will empower you to make the right decision. To find a exercise programme that works for you, to avoid certain risky behaviours and to treat nutritional deficiencies, wherever possible. As mentioned earlier, it is a non invasive test that involves just a saliva sample. Then, you counsel with friends and family to find the right physician and expert to help guide you through the process. Finally, you adopt a strategic approach with diet, supplementation and stress reduction with the doctor to help with mitigate your risks. Remember, gene testing, can be a very powerful tool to good health so book your session like I did.
I contacted the team at VLCC and consulted with their DNA specialists to find the best panel that worked for me. The therapists were kind, patient and talked me through the process. I had to wait a bit to receive the results but they told me that I had nothing to worry about. I have all the test results and the answers I need to take my health into my own hands. Prevention is possible and it doesn’t have to cost the earth. For more information, contact VLCC here. Remember, knowledge is power and awareness is the first step at identifying the problem.
