This report will give you the most important genes that govern the process of methylation. Methylation is the mechanism by which our body can turn genes on and off. Methylation also controls intra-cellular detoxification. Methylation affects virtually any and all health conditions.
This report will also give you a description of the function of each gene and some additional information which may include what nutrients are needed by them, dietary recommendations pertaining to each gene and/or what to look for if you have a mutation.
Why do I need this report? If you have in your immediately family one of the following four health conditions (cancer, heart disease, diabetes, mental illness) and you would like to take a proactive preventive measure to minimize your chances of ever developing it, this report is for you. Science has discovered that methylation is the process that controls gene expression. This report gives you information about what genes have mutations that could hinder methylation so you can take it to your doctor for a plan of action according to your unique health situation.
Optimizing methylation is key for any preventive program. Finding a doctor that understands these reports is hard to find. Once you have your results in hands, a good place to start is to consult with anyone listed in our directory.
As with all reports, we are constantly researching and updating our database. As long as you do not delete your file from your account your results will be automatically updated whenever we add new information and/or genes, so check regularly.
