For years we were taught that we were born with a genetic blueprint that could not be altered. While for some specific genes and genetically induced syndromes that is true, however we now know that we can influence the way many of our important genes are expressed. This is important to you, because hundreds of common conditions, everything from fibromyalgia, migraine headaches, thyroid disease and diabetes, to autism can be influenced by properly regulating your genetic expression. We begin by analyzing your genome through a sample of your saliva. In a matter of weeks we have your personal genetic blueprint from which we can prepare a comprehensive report that will serve as your guide to better health and a happier disposition.
What’s Your Sequence?
Each SNP (Single Nucleotide Polymorphism), or gene segment, can be in a good, bad, or mixed sequence that you inherited from your parents. Each of the SNPs we look at codes for a single important step in your metabolic pathway that determines how you utilize specific nutrients. A typical example is Vitamin B-12, important for your body’s energy and many neurological functions. For many, Vitamin B-12 isn’t properly utilized and thus no matter how much you take in you may not see dramatic improvement. The good news is that for most of the undesirable SNPs, we can influence the way your metabolic processes function by recommending specific supplements and nutrients that will correct the deficiencies.
What is Epigenetics?
The study of influencing genetic expression is a new field of medicine called Epigenetics. We re-engineer the way your genes are expressed. One of the several processes by which your genes are regulated is called methylation. In essence, it’s the introduction of a methyl chemical group onto your DNA or genes that can dramatically affect your genetics. Among some of the diseases associated with this process are:
- THYROID DISEASE
- GLUTEN INTOLERANCE
- PARKINSON’S DISEASE
- CHRONIC FATIGUE SYNDROME
Understanding what SNPs you carry is the first step in unraveling what often are huge mysteries to physicians, because they have overlooked this new key to the way in which the body functions optimally.
When we unlock the key and give you the supplementation you need, symptoms often go away forever.
