Many of us suffer from chronic underlying disorders and symptoms for which the cause is unknown. It could be chronic pain, anxiety, depression, chronic fatigue, autoimmune disease or digestive problems. A lot of money and time is spent on doctor visits, supplements, and medications in treating the symptoms of pain, inflammation, sleep disorders, etc.
The cause of disease and symptoms is multifaceted. It could be environmental, genetic, psychosocial or a combination. If it is genetic, the nutrigenetic software program helps patients to see which pathways need support. Perhaps you are not clearing certain metabolic toxins from your body. Toxins are metabolic disruptors and increase the risk for chronic degenerative disease.
Until the cause is known, it cannot be treated. We offer genetic testing through Nutrigenetic Research Institute. Following an initial consult with the physician, the salivary DNA kit is sent directly to your home. In addition to the DNA test, urine testing through Great Plains Lab is also available to confirm the presence of organic acids in your body. This organic acid test (OAT test) helps to confirm whether some of the genetic errors are resulting in a build up of toxins in the body.
This unique software program takes into account the OAT test and your symptoms to confirm whether the genetic incompetencies that show up in the DNA test are causing clinical symptoms. The doctor will go over this report with you via screen share or in person and prioritize which areas of your health will get treated first. It’s important to understant that since the cause and not the symptoms are being addressed that time is needed by the body in self healing. Supplements and guidance on eating a healthy diet will facilitate the body in bringing itself back into balance. Once balance is achieved, you will notice decreased pain and an improvement in your quality of life.
