Genetics can play key roles in the development of diseases. Everyone has genetic mutations. However, there are numerous and complex factors that will affect your health status, besides inherited genetic mutations. Many of the genetic mutations are not problematic or expressed, because the body has learned how to adapt despite their presence. But many other mutations are indeed a real health problem. The association of the symptomatology and the correlation with other laboratory tests is essential in understanding the expression of certain genetic mutations.
The epigenome (the multitude of chemical compounds that tell the genome what to do) is directly and indirectly influenced by the presence or absence of key nutrients in the diet, as well as by exposure to toxins, chemicals, pathogens and other environmental factors.
What we eat and what we are exposed to in our environment directly affects our DNA and its expression.
Each gene has hundreds or thousands of variations. These are known as SNPs (singular nucleotide polymorphisms). Genes operate by encoding enzymes. You can think of it as a copy system. The original pattern (gene sequence) transcribes a duplicate into the RNA (ribonucleic acid) form, which then encodes a specific enzyme. Enzymes work to generate biochemical reactions in various processes in the body. If certain genetic mutations are expressed, the enzymes that are encoded by the gene may be absent, partially functional, or in a state of „over-expression”. This impairment of function is an essential component of how genetic mutations are involved in negative symptoms and the disease process.
Genetic testing cannot be used to diagnose. The most efficient and accurate way to use the data provided by these tests is clinical evidence for dysfunctional mechanisms and blockages in the body, which generate health problems.
This service includes a report of your genetic results, interpretation and one consultation. Recommended labs for genetic testing: 23andme and AncestryDNA.
For a complete and efficient healing protocol it is recommended to also purchase the Metabolic Typing program and have other clinical data available for correlation.
