“Hey, you are an exact replica of your mother!”

“Your eyes look so much like your father.”

“Her intellectual level is exactly like her father and behaves typically like her mother.”


Have you been told something like this? It’s quite natural – you are a byproduct of your parents. You inherit physical and biological characteristics from mother and father. Also, there have been cases where children inherit diseases from parents. Isn’t it? You may have noticed people saying ‘hair loss is in my gene’ or ‘diabetes runs in my family’.

So, does that mean you are also destined to get your parents’ illnesses? Let us find out.

Genes and Diseases

Genetic factors play a part in nearly all health problems and characteristics. Few diseases are usually caused by changes in a single gene that makes the protein it encodes not to function properly or not to function at all. These are called hereditary diseases. Example, Down syndrome, which is a genetic chromosome 21 disorder causing developmental and intellectual delays.

Other types of diseases, like cancer and diabetes, are caused by a combination of gene changes and environmental factors that determine the risk to suffer the disease.

Since genes pass from parent to children, any changes to the DNA within a gene are also passed. The good news is that you can turn the tables. How? Read on to know about it.


Reduce the risk of getting diseases your parents went through

Are you afraid that your mother has diabetes hence you’re going to get it too? Are you predisposed to hair loss as it runs in your family? Don’t worry! You can learn your disease risk much before it hits you with the help of GenoHomeopathy.

GenoHomeopathy is a concept that integrates deep biological insights as provided by genetics with the power of homeopathy to deliver you personalized treatment.

The genetic report informs you whether you carry genetic variants which will enhance your risk of having heart problems, diabetes type 2, liver diseases, hypertension, chronic kidney diseases, cancer, or bone-related problems like osteoporosis and rheumatoid arthritis.

It also shows whether you are genetically predisposed to have decreased serum levels of iron, zinc, folic acid, or decreased metabolism of beta carotene to retinol (vitamin A). Deficiency of certain vital nutrients in your body can lead to serious medical disorders in the future. For example, getting too little folate in your diet can result in megaloblastic anemia, which causes weakness, fatigue, trouble concentrating, irritability, headache, palpitations, and shortness of breath. Women who don’t get enough folate are at risk of having babies with neural tube defects such as spina bifida.

A deficiency of essential fatty acids – either omega-3s or omega 6s – can cause rough, scaly skin, and dermatitis. Iron deficiency may lead to premature hair loss in men and women.

Our doctors personalize a homeopathic treatment based on your test reports to prevent your chances of getting the disease. They combine your personality and genetic factor for scientific and targeted treatment and provide you a healthy lifestyle and dietary change for better treatment results.

No two patients with even the same medical condition are given the same medicines as no two people on this planet have the same genes. Genes of every person are as unique as his fingerprint or iris.

GenoHomeopathy goes to the root of the problem; right to the patient’s genes and treats it with precise and unique homeopathic medicines. As the root cause of the medical problem is treated, the patients not only get relief from unpleasant symptoms but a long-lasting cure for their medical condition.

So, what are you waiting for? Take control over your health – your best defense is to know your family history and your own health risks. To get the test done, you can book an appointment at our clinics through
