The genome is the complete set of DNA, and where you find the instructions to build health. The DNA remains fixed for life, but the epigenome remains flexible. Our diet, exercise, environment, stress levels, and relationships all signal changes to our genes in a negative or positive way.
Nutrition has an “epigenetic” effect on our DNA and is one of the major ways we can change the destiny of our genetic health history and reverse disease probability.
The reason that one diet cannot suit all of us and that population studies are continually contradictory with dietary advice is that we are all different. Genetics and biochemistry help us discover how we are different, and what we can do to potentially overcome disease susceptibilities through the understanding of epigenetics by applying it to our diet, lifestyle, and environment.
Nutrigenomic Testing and the Nutrition Genome Report
The Genetrition™ software tests clinically relevant genes and determines your genotype for each gene. It does this by reading your DNA file from a saliva sample. Once these genotypes are determined, the software provides you research on how to epigenetically improve any gene variants, strengthen the “chinks” in your armor and lower the probability of disease.
