The concept of a single gene mutations correlating to a direct disease is a rare occurrence. Our current understanding of genetics is within the interplay of multiple genes influencing each other within environmental pressures. A test like 23 and me is helpful for a few genes but does little to explain the nuances of multigenic theory of epigenetics to influence health Risk. It is overwhelming to patients and most doctors.
WHAT IS IT?
We have chosen IntellxxDNA as our genetic tests company.
By the time blood markers are abnormal, you are further down the path of intervention. Knowing your genes and their risks help support you in areas that are weaker and before you test abnormal on blood tests or manifest a disease. If labs tests are abnormal, knowing your genetic profile helps us target macronutrients, lifestyle, sleep, and prescription meds to keep you on the right path of health.
