Our programmes and recommendations are not based on single gene testing, which is often the case. Our programmes are specifically designed according to the interactions between:
- Environment – Gene (food-gene, micronutrient-gene, tobacco-gene, drug-gene, etc)
- Gene – Gene
- Epigenomic principles
This means that individual data (lifestyle, nutrition, existing illness, etc) is analysed simultaneously and interactively with genetic results, giving us the most advanced epigenomic approach possible.
Consequently, the comparison of revealed genetic potential (what we have) with current lifestyle and individual / clinical data (what we are), indicates which processes could be optimised and / or stimulated through the gene activity (the "work" of our genes) for optimal health and wellbeing.
We study the unique relationship between your genes and your lifestyle and habits. The result of different "environment – gene interactions" depends on your choices. You do not change the structure of the genes, but you modify their "work" (= activity). This is called "Gene Expression". You are continually altering your "Gene Expression" every time you eat, drink, smoke or take part in physical exercises.
Baranova uses Epigenomics to provide a holistic analysis and diagnosis of internal and external interactions to determine the correct personalised Programme for each individual.
