DNA Testing Exposes Risk For Chronic Disease
Nutrigenetics (how genetics are affected by nutrition) has been increasingly used by alternative practitioners. With DNA testing, a practitioner can target the supplements to strengthen weak pathways.
For example, if a patient doesn’t make enough glutathione, the body will be under more oxidative stress which leads to an increased risk for cancer and neurological disorders. If the urea cycle is not working properly, there could be excess ammonia production which is toxic.
The Nutrigenetic Research Institute has developed a unique software program that takes into account the patient’s symptoms, along with the genetic SNPs (variances) to determine if a metabolic pathway needs support. It also takes into account the Organic Oat Test (OAT), which analyzes the urine for metabolic or microbial products.
Genetic testing with the Nutrigenetic institute is available at Garden Of Health,llc. Call 480-535-7868 for more information or to schedule an initial appointment.
