Genetic Nutritional Testing - using nutrition to support function
For the past 20 years, I've been looking for a way to address individual needs within each patient. Genetic Analysis has created a way to identify each person's predisposition towards metabolic imbalances determined by their very own genetic make-up. By identifying these genetic imbalances in combination with signs and symptoms and other test results, the most comprehensive picture to date can be created and a plan for addressing and providing individualized nutritional needs can be implemented. Using this approach, I have seen amazing results that enable the sickest of people to find the answers that they have often been seeking for decades.
While the life expectancy of people has increased, the Healthy Life expectancy has decreased. We are living longer with more diseases and disabilities that often start at earlier ages than we have ever witnessed before. The Baby Boomers are the first generation to to see a reduction in the quality of life as they age, as well as shorter lifespans. Generation X has more disability days than any other generation before it. The costs associated with healthcare are skyrocketing. Infectious disease is no longer the number one killer, it's metabolic diseases such as obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, cancers, and pulmonary disease - all preventable!
Genetic Analysis can help to determine each person's individual needs and help more clearly identify the correct nutrition to support function in the body. The complexity of the body is seldom understood or appreciated by most people who seek simple solutions. Genetic analysis creates a bridge between the complex and the simple. This test looks at 200,000 genes in the body, compared with a popular program like 23andme, which currently only look at 2000 genes.
Most people who take advantage of this testing have serious conditions that have left them beyond the help of the current practice of medicine. Genetic analysis has been a lifesaver for many who suffer from complex disease patterns. The benefit however, can be realized by everyone who seeks to understand their body's needs more clearly, from elite athletes and professionals to everyone else. If there was ever an individualized manual for taking care of your body, this is it! Make life extension a reality and expand your Healthy Life expectancy!
"An overwhelming number of observations support the evidence that genetic background has a key role to play in individual response to diet and life-style, and in shaping individual nutritional requirements." Journal of NutriGenetics and NutriGenomic, 2011
A large number of studies have clearly shown that nutrients alter the expression of genetic information at the level of gene regulation, signal transduction and through alterations in chromatin structure and protein function. Diet can affect the expression levels of genes by acting on transcription factors or by causing epigenetic changes such as methylating DNA. Global changes in gene expression profiles could represent molecular ‘signatures’ that reflect exposure to specific nutrients. Journal of NutriGenetics and NutriGenomics, 2011
