“Today, I went through my nervous system DNA. And suddenly the remaining pieces of the jigsaw are falling into place.
I know that my default setting can be work horse.
But seeing it laid out in front of me as to why and the impact of this, if I keep battling through, changes the game completely.
The feelings I’m having. These are not just beliefs and behaviours. They are also biological. They are my DNA.
If I neglect other parts of the nervous system, my own holes in the boat get greater and cause more mental and physical stimulation which in turn impacts how I feel. “
– Leigh Howes, Leadership and Business Coach & Consultant
If you want to get super strategic, build your biological needs into your plan and improve how well you and your body function, then looking at your genomic blueprint is the best way forward. The Nervous System Profile is a great place to start as it offers foundational information for you to understand some of your strengths and weaknesses when it comes to your mental and emotional health and the impact on your body. You’ll then get to see where the opportunities are to support your blueprint and ensure it expresses itself in the most beneficial ways.
We’ll examine the best-evidenced genes and variants (SNPs) that impact your neurotransmitters.
We’ll be able to see the following: –
Serotonin – known best for its role in mood
Melatonin – to explore whether you are making this for sleep
Dopamine – best known for its role in reward
Noradrenaline – think focus and concentration
Adrenaline – your fight, flight, freeze, fawn response
Glutamate and GABA – check whether your “off switch” is stuck
Symptoms of neurotransmitter imbalances include:
Mood disorders such as anxiety and depression
Inability to concentrate
Inability or reduced capacity to self-regulate emotionally
60-MINUTE TEST REVIEW
In order to ensure you can start to make the most of your results immediately a 60-minute Zoom review is factored into the investment.
Your individual results will be explained, specific recommended nutrition and lifestyle interventions discussed and any questions you may have answered.
And you’ll be emailed a digital copy of your results for your own records and to refer back to at any time.
“This increased level of self awareness and a direct course of action to support myself makes me feel I’m fixing my roof before it rains.
Why is it we prioritise our business? Our life insurance?
But we forget to optimise and prioritise the most precious thing we have?
Our health, both physically and mentally...”
Why look at this aspect of yourself?
If you’re serious about building a personalised and proactive performance strategy and/or interested in preventative healthcare then the Nervous System Profile is a great place to start.
Variations in our genome (DNA) are what makes each of us unique and can have significant impacts on our life and health. Whilst one gene variant can make a difference, most chronic diseases result from the interplay between multiple common variants (SNPs) and environmental factors.
How does the test work?
A sample of your cheek cells is collected using the DNA test kit from which DNA is subsequently extracted and analysed. It takes just 1 minute to collect the sample, place the swab in the test tube with the stabilising tablet, complete and sign the consent form and place everything in the return packaging provided.
Results take approximately 4 weeks to be ready for review although this can be longer depending on mutual schedules of course.
This is a home test to collect a sample of cheek cells from which DNA is extracted and analysed.
The test is not impacted by medications, contraceptives, pregnancy, nutritional supplements, exercise or any other environmental factors.
