The genes we are born with are unchangeable. However, some genes are inactive and therefore they are not expressed. Genetic testing can guide you to overall health by helping your physician to tailor treatment and also offer solutions to boost energy, enhance vitality, increase muscle and bone health, control weight, optimize exercise routines, improve mood and identify vitamin deficiencies. Adjusting environmental conditions and lifestyle can activate or deactivate genes, that is why a deep dive into your genetic makeup at the cellular level is vital for personalized health.
Your genetic makeup can reveal which foods will promote optimal health and foods to avoid. Discover the types of foods that turn on certain healing factors and pathways in your cells. Did you know that the certain foods in your diet modulate the expression of genes that control your fat burning ability. For example, Betaine in brown rice, quinoa and oats, leafy greens, green tea, and brightly colored vegetables (spinach, beets) turns off genes for insulin resistance, liver steatosis (fatty liver). Also, Curcumin in yellow, black, and brown spices (turmeric) turns off genes for inflammation and obesity.
Recent studies reveal that epigenetic mechanisms such as DNA methylation, and expression are involved in exercise-induced adaptive responses. Genetic testing can help tailor your exercise routine based on your physique or endurance capabilities.
Your genetic test results will encourage a proactive approach to achieve and maintain healthier skin and health. Various compounds, co-factors and proteins (collagen, gelatin, hyaluronic acid etc..) responsible for hair growth, bone health or skin elasticity may be lacking in your genetic makeup, testing will allow us to understand if you need extra supplementation or increased dietary intake of certain foods to fill in nutritional gaps.
Uncover potential Vitamin deficiencies so that you can be aware of what vitamins you should get from food and supplements.
Understanding how your genes affect you reaction to drugs. Make your medication treatment safer and more effective. Potential drug toxicities are also avoided if you are genetically not able to metabolize or eliminate certain compounds or chemicals.
Absolutely not! A common misconception about eating clean or eating vegetarian is that your options are limited. This is simply untrue, there are plenty of meat substitutes that provide an incredible amount of protein. They’re filling, fibrous, and easier for your body to process than actual “processed” food. Trust me, you’ll be eating a lot more than juices and fruit salads. PLUS –– you get TWO recipe guides… with meat or without. Your choice, your program!
You’ll never be pressured to take supplements or unnatural substances that would cause disruption in your body. This is simply a switch to more organic, healthy foods as opposed to what you may have been eating before! You’ll want to drink more fluids and eat a bit more protein than usual, otherwise, you’ll be perfectly fine. Of course, always consult your doctor.
