Humans have unique genes that diversify their responses to a variety of foods, exercises and medications. What works well for one person often doesn’t work for another, which is why there is no “one size fits all” solution for achieving optimal health. Most people spend years trying to find a diet and exercise regimen and medicine that will work best for them. Through DNA testing, you can take active steps to improve your well-being by finding out where your genetic problems may be, which can contribute to weight gain, inflammation, metabolic problems and chronic diseases. DNA testing has inspired this significance and impact Dr. Lois Nahirni Found DNA power Inc.. dnaPower has been providing personalized DNA testing for health and wellness since 2008.
Dedicated to making the world a better place, the company conducts research into genetic variations among lifestyle-related individuals to present the best and most useful scientific information about your unique body in your hands.
We spoke to Dr. Lois at Insights Success to learn more about dnaPower and how it helps people lead healthier lives.
Below are the highlights of the interview:
Give us dnaPower Inc. Give a brief overview of its journey, mission, and key aspects of its strong position in the food and fitness industry.
DNA testing is revolutionizing preventive health. I have established dnaPower añer private DNA testing which has helped me to solve years of health problems that doctors could not explain or solve. DNA results show that I have a general genetic deficiency in vitamin B. Within 2 weeks of taking a complex vitamin B, my health problems of the year were virtually gone. I couldn’t believe that such a simple answer exists through DNA! I have decided to pivot my career and focus on making this valuable test and information available to the world.
dnaPower aims to create a healthier world by helping people learn about their unique genetics for living healthier lives. Our detailed testing provides key insights into proper diet and exercise for our clients.
Describe your top offers that meet the needs of your customers.
Your DNA is your body’s roadmap – it shows where your genes are strong and where they are weak. Areas where you have a weak gene are more likely to have problems over time. dnaPower focuses on genetics related to diet, fitness and health. When you take care of these genes, the rest of your body is more likely to be healthy. We help you find the underlying contributors to weight gain, chronic fatigue, autoimmune reactions, bowel problems, or daily well-being.
We examine over 70 areas with 200 genetic variations and provide easy-to-read red / green graphs to highlight where clients need to pay the most attention. People learn about their genes related to gluten, lactose, carbohydrates, fats, proteins, vitamins, hormones and more. A clear set of actions provides recommendations for diet and lifestyle changes based on outcomes.
Do your clients prefer your company over other competitors?
dnaPower provides the most comprehensive test on the market using polygenic assessments to provide more accurate, holistic insights into key areas of focus for long-term health. We include a 45-minute consultation with a certified nutritionist to ensure clients get the most out of their results and how to incorporate these changes into their lives. We’ve been doing this for over 10 years so we know how this information can positively impact human health.
From a business leader’s point of view, what are your thoughts on the impact of the current epidemic in the DNA testing sector and related markets?
Preventive health has never been more important. Strong immunity is essential. DNA testing provides insights into specific genetics that could put people at higher or lower risk. DNA can show you if the body needs the extra help of unique vitamins C, D, and zinc genetics. This enables you to address specific deficiencies in advance, potentially avoid an illness or reduce duration and severity. If you know where the genetics of your lifestyle is weak, you can take steps to support your body and health so that your body is in the best condition to fight any virus or disease.
With the basic insights it can provide, DNA testing will increase dramatically in the coming years. This information everyone needs to have.
Describe the values that drive your organization.
We are passionate about helping people live their best lives. Our goal is a healthier you, a healthier world – we go the extra mile to ensure our customers gain value from their DNA information to help them be healthier and happier. We strongly believe that knowing your genes as it relates to health and wellness is far more valuable to your family than knowing your genes.
Although ancestral learning is fun, health is the ultimate goal. That’s why in addition to our direct testing, we’ve created Friend Connect products to take your ancestral data and give you health insights within 48 hours. We want to give you information so that you know how to live a healthy life.
In what ways have you or your company contributed to the community?
Gender equality, diversity and inclusion are deeply important to me. I have been an active lawyer for over 20 years presiding over a number of organizations, including the Canadian Women’s International Network, the Premier Women’s Economic Council, the Women’s Executive Network, WE for SHE and other reasons for advancing equity.
In a personal note, I have adopted identical twins from Vietnam, a transgender, which has made LGBTQ rights, diversity and inclusion more important to me in our world. To give back to our children gifts, we have an adopted family charity that builds schools in impoverished Vietnam and provides scholarships and summer camps for girls at high risk of being trafficked. I am honored to be recognized with many awards for this work, including the BC Medal of Good Citizenship.
What are your future aspirations? Where will you see your company in the next five years?
Our goal is that everyone has the ability to learn their DNA so that they can make the most conscious decisions about their health. We would like to see the Lifestyle DNA test as one of the first tests included in the personalized and preventive health program. If we can eat and live according to our DNA, work with our bodies without being against them, then we have the best chance of living a healthy life.
We are particularly excited about APOE research and our experiments related to Alzheimer’s and cardiovascular disease. If you know you have these genes, you can take proactive steps to manage your health and ensure that these genes are not released. This is the revolutionary power of DNA testing. Preventive measures are now in your hands
