Determining Genetic Propensities-
Vital for Your, Health, Nutritional Plan and Prevention of Disease

Determining which supplements are best and in what form for your body is simply not possible without understanding your genetics.

For instance, why do certain individuals benefit from turmeric and some do not?
Why do some people have family histories of cancer and what nutritional, dietary and lifestyle choices are vital to prevent it?

Its in the genes.  Some individuals have had genetic testing (especially after a cancer diagnosis) however they still lack direction on how to support the body thru diet and nutrition. Many of the genes tested in Western medicine do not provide insight on your detoxification pathways, how you metabolize estrogen or what neurotransmitters you need support with.  Gathering this information is vital.  The collection method is simple and done thru a cheek swab.

A kit will be mailed to you with a prepaid return envelope.  After 7-10 days your report will be available at which point we will more carefully structure your nutritional plan.

What Your Report Says About You: Reading Your Report

The DNA Test is broken down in easy to read sections. Genes, risk level, risk profile and description, suggested supplements & dietary suggestions to support your personal genetic makeup.  See the sample report.  Genes relating to the following:

*Detoxification and Methylation in the Liver
*Estrogen Metabolisim
*Vitamin D and bone health
*Cholesterol and Cardiovascular Health
*Adrenal and Hormone Health

RECOMMENDED SUPPLEMENTS: Here you can find specific supplements to support your genetic makeup. After performing this test, I am better able to direct you  to which supplements will assist your individual genetic circumstance to help improve or support what nature has given you.

DIET DO’S & DON’TS Depending on your risk level, and the gene being assessed you will find Do’s and Don’t in regards to lifestyle choices and dietary support.

Taking Action

You cannot change your genes, but the expression of the genes can be impacted by environmental factors, such as nutrition, exercise, and other lifestyle factors that can impact your health.  This is called “Epigenetics”.  For more info I recommend the book-“Dirty Genes” by Dr. Ben Lynch.

Understanding Genes

Genes are the basic physical and functional unit of heredity. Each gene is made up of DNA. According to The Human Genome project each human has 20,000 to 25,000 genes. Each person inherits a set of genes from each parent.

In this report we will be looking at individual genes and SNP’s, SNP is a Single Nucleotide Polymorphism.

(Adenine (A), Thymine (T), Guanine (G), and Cytosine (C) are the 4 main pieces of DNA. Every person has a different makeup. one person my have a A where another may have a G. This difference is considered a variant. The variant is a SNP. Variants are the differences make each person unique. In this report we will be talking about specific SNPs and they will each have an rs number to refer to those SNPs.

In this report we will discuss the level of risk each variant presents for each individual, and what you can do to better support your health.

GENE: Each Gene section will have a subject as to what we are focusing on in regards to that gene. Along with the respective number to reference.

USER ALLELE: The user allele will provide the variant specific to your genetic makeup for each section.

RISK PROFILE: For each gene the risk profile will display, “High Risk”, “Mid Risk”, “No Risk”. Then it will explain the risk associated with your profile. There may also be additional notes to reference depending on the risk level.


The recommendations should reviewed by your providing healthcare practitioner. Please consult with your healthcare practitioner before making dietary or exercise changes, or before changing your supplement regimen. Be sure that you provide all necessary health information to your healthcare practitioner. This report is dependent on the approved DNA sequencing uploaded by you or your healthcare practitioner.
