Here at The Hundred Wellness Centre we provide cutting-edge DNA testing technology. The DNA extraction technique takes just two minutes (we swab the inside of your cheek), and you will receive detailed feedback and reports about your specific DNA – one of your greatest tools for optimum health and wellness.
Together with our in-house homeopathic doctor, we will help you to understand your DNA test results and devise a bespoke plan based on them. Perhaps you have a caffeine sensitivity and need to cut down, perhaps your bones have problems absorbing calcium and this needs to be treated with diet and supplementation. Whatever your results, we will be on hand to help you to correct them using supplements, diet and consultation.
The DNA tests available at The Hundred Wellness Centre
One of the first products of its kind in the world, DNA Diet is designed to assist the healthcare practitioner in the design of a personalised healthy eating plan based on individual genetic differences.

The DNA Health test is designed to optimise wellbeing and health by personalising lifestyle and diet choices and, where necessary, using supplements tailored to offset any particular nutritional deficit based on specific gene variants. The DNA Health approach assists the healthcare practitioner in establishing the optimal nutrition necessary for good health, longevity and disease risk mitigation.
80% of breast cancer occurs in women with no family history. Oestrogen gene testing may help you lessen your risk. Research has shown that an increased lifetime exposure to oestrogen is a strong risk factor in the development of breast cancer. DNA Oestrogen tests for gene variants that have been shown to have an impact on how oestrogen is processed in your body and if the processing of oestrogen and related compounds is efficient and healthy.
DNA Sport examines various biological areas that impact training responsiveness and sporting performance. These include soft tissue remodelling, inflammation, blood flow and respiration, energy production and fuel metabolism.
Athletic success results firstly from personalising a training strategy that optimises your genetic potential, and secondly choosing the right lifestyle, nutrition and environmental interactions to optimally express your inherited genes.
The DNA Testing process at The Hundred Wellness Centre
The Hundred Wellness Centre works with the prestigious DNAlysis biotechnology in South Africa. The process is easy: You visit our Jumeirah centre and we take a swab inside your cheek (which takes 2 minutes). We send the swabs off to the DNAlysis experts, who analyse your DNA and provide us with detailed, bespoke reports. These are emailed to you approximately 2 weeks later, and we arrange a meeting with our in-house doctor to take you through your results, and any advised treatment, natural supplements and lifestyle changes.
