The most modern genetic diagnostics for early recognition

Lanserhof - with its unique Lans Med Concept - is a pioneer in the medicine of the future and a forerunner in Europe in the field of vitality medicine. In order to recognise particular illnesses even earlier and to enable successful therapies, The Lanserhof Centre for Health now offers its guests the most modern scientific methods in genetic diagnostics.

How is it possible that one can become older, stay healthy and fit, and also remain physically and mentally strong and resilient? The answer lies in one’s genes. Modern medicine today knows that the metabolism, aging process and predisposition to infection and inflammation depends considerably on the individual genetic principles we have been handed down. Consequently, genetic diagnostics has found its way into anti-aging and preventive medicine in recent years. As a result of these completely new methods, certain illnesses can be recognised much earlier than with existing conventional methods. For example, cardiovascular risks, illnesses of the prostrate, bladder and kidney, risks of particular cancers, Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s disease.  The revolutionary aspect of new genetic diagnostic methods such as the so-called Snips Method is that genetically determined health risks can be minimised through specific, well-directed measures. This is significant, as such measures can prevent illness before it manifests itself.

SNP genetic diagnositcs for Lanserhof guests

Although every person possesses basically the same genetic information, every human being is unique. This uniqueness is based on marginal differences in this genetic information, so-called polymorphisms. Single–nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) are the most commonly occurring form of DNA variations in the human genome. These individual variations make individual people more susceptible, or more resistant to some illnesses, as the case may be.

Lanserhof have now integrated the groundbreaking findings of modern gene research into their comprehensive range of holistic diagnostic methods. In cooperation with the renowned Klentze Institute in Munich, Germany, Lanserhof offers its guests, if desired, the possibility to undertake an analysis of genetically related health risks. The emphasis here is placed on nutrition and cardiology. With the aid of modern gene testing, genetic risks can be detected. Moreover, every genetic distinction which has an influence on how the body absorbs nutrition can be identified. As a result, it now possible for the medical staff at Lanserhof to offer guests an even more individually focused nutrition concept

How is the test carried out?

In order to undergo genetic analysis, the medical staff require cells from the oral mucosa (lining of the mouth), which are taken by means of a cotton swab, or bud, from the inside of one’s cheek. As analysis of the results takes a few weeks, Lanserhof recommend their guests to take the cell sample themselves at home. The test is easy to carry out, and the cotton swab (or bud) can be simply sent by post to Lanserhof. After approximately three to six weeks, the results are made available in order to carry out further precise recommendations and therapeutic measures.
