As genes help create enzymes that make antioxidants, break down toxins, error in those genes lowers the enzyme level or makes it overactive. This affects its pathway, causing chronic diseases (e.g., lack of certain digestive enzymes causes low nutrient absorption and deficiency). Find faulty DNA pathways in a salivary lab test. Confirm by checking organic acid level in urine via urine test. Take prescribed supplements.
Do you experience chronic symptoms that persist no matter what you do? Have you been diagnosed with a chronic degenerative disease such as Parkinson’s or multiple sclerosis (MS)?
Gene Error Affects Enzyme Function
We all have genes within our DNA that provide instructions to make certain enzymes. These enzymes are crucial in carrying out vital physiological functions such as breaking down toxins or making antioxidants such as glutathione.
If there is an error with a gene (single nucleotide polymorphism or SNP), then the enzyme it was instructed to make will be deficient or perhaps overactive. Depending on that enzyme’s job, that pathway will be faulty, leading to a myriad of downstream consequences.
A Few Examples
Not having enough of an antioxidant such as glutathione results in an increased risk for certain neurodegenerative diseases and cancer, not to mention a myriad of chronic symptoms. This is due to the buildup of certain toxins that are not being cleared appropriately. Not having enough of the enzyme that makes nitric oxide increases your risk of cardiovascular diseases.
One can also see how well a patient absorbs their nutrients. Perhaps you eat a great diet and still feel tired all the time or after meals. Certain pathways help you get energy from your food. If a particular digestive enzyme isn’t working, you may continually be deficient in that nutrient despite eating foods high in that nutrient. For example, dry skin, hair, etc., are the signs of deficiency of good fats in the body, even though you supplement with fish oil, etc.
This can be very discouraging to a patient, not to mention all the money spent to overcome a nutrient deficiency, with minimal results.
Treatment And Cure
You can test your DNA for these SNPs in a simple salivary lab test. It is also recommended that you do a urine test to measure certain organic acids present in your urine. This can verify that the faulty pathways found in the DNA results are indeed expressing and causing consequences in the body (buildup of certain toxins). This will confirm to the doctor doing the interpretation that the patient needs a supplement to help correct the imbalance and scavenge the resulting toxins.
DNA mapping is becoming more widespread and is available directly to consumers. There are software programs for licensed professionals to not only interpret the DNA results but also guide the patient to the right supplements, custom made for the genetic pathways that have errors.
With these supplements, you can now reduce your risk for cardiovascular disease, certain neurodegenerative diseases, and cancer. You can influence the way you feel by getting the most out of your food and clearing the toxins from your system effectively.
