Modifying our Genetic Expression (Epigenetics)
Through focused genetic and kinesiological testing and the application of Nutrigenomics, we can:
- Identify the presence of SNPs in key places in the methylation cycle.
- Use the right supplements to control how these genes act, in effect bypassing the genetic mutations to optimize methylation cycle function.
- Benefit from all of the necessary tasks performed by a functioning methylation cycle.
- Reduce (and repair the effects of) neurological inflammation.
- Over time, correct imbalances, relieve symptoms, and optimize a person’s potential for good health
We will be evaluating your individual methylation patterns through genetic (DNA) testing and muscle testing to determine approximately where these genetic glitches are and recommending supplementation to achieve a “genetic bypass” of your particular DNA mutations.
Ancestry.com offers a simple inexpensive genetic test (done through saliva-$99). You can order online results are received in approximately 4-6 weeks and we can begin your individualized nutrient supplementation protocol.
After receiving the results from your genetic test, we will put your data through several templates to extract the information that is clinically relevant. We can then use kinesiology to determine your exact nutrient needs and amounts of supplements needed to compensate for your genetic variants. Remember, you have had a lifetime of not being able to absorb certain nutrients, so repair and detoxification will take a bit of time. However, progress is generally seen quickly in certain symptoms such as depression, focus, memory and fatigue. This first visit can take from 1.5-2 hours to take a history, go over your results and design a health program for you.
Because of our very unique genetics and environmental exposure levels your supplement program must be customized to fit your needs. We are trying to repair cellular damage, balance nutrient deficiencies, allow your body to detox, allow your immune system to function normally and repair neurological damage. The good news is that through this program it is possible to address all of these areas and rebalance these systems. However, this process takes time and patience. Success can be achieved by slowly correcting each imbalance and beginning to rebuild the body.
On your follow-up visit we will re-evaluate your program and make sure we are not missing any ingredients to get your body functioning normally again. These visits can run from 30-60 minutes depending on your situation and how you are tolerating your treatment protocol.
