What is genetic testing?
Your genetic code is at the core of your being. In the past, your health seemed highly dependent on having "good genes." Although your DNA is an unchangeable part of yourself, how your body uses and translates your genetic code can be impacted. Epigenetics is the study of how genes are expressed and modified without changing the code itself. The rise of epigenetics brings exciting news--we are not just stuck with "bad genes" without the ability to impact them. Even though we may carry genes which predispose us to certain lifestyles, diseases, and mindsets, epigenetics shows us that our body is largely cued by lifestyle and environment.
For example, epigenetics is the explanation for how identical twins can have entirely different health outcomes. One twin could have a heart attack at 55, while the other one could run marathons. Although the twins have identical genetics, they have modified the translation of their DNA by their lifestyle and environmental choices.
In light of the rise of epigenetics, we have embraced genetic testing and determining how to help our patients modify the translation for their best health.
Benefits of Genetic Testing:
- Understand your body deep within.
- Avoid health problems.
- Change the long-term trajectory of your health.
- Adjust how your body translates your genetic code.
- Experience your optimal health.
- Comprehend how to feed your needs specifically--body, mind, and spirit.
