Our research team is developing this comprehensive compilation of resources for you to better understand how genetic variants may impact your nutritional status. This website does not cover genetic defects related to disease, but only genetic variants that impact your nutritional status. Examples would include the genes that make folate, support the use of B12, break down histamine, support cellular energy production, etc.
From an introductory video available now to upcoming videos on specific genetic variants and articles, we’ll help you traverse and harness your DNA for optimal health.
The best place to start is to watch the short or expanded introductory videos found on his page. Here, you will be exposed to basic DNA information, snps (or variants), and an introduction to the Methylation Cycle. There are pages for many of the common genetic variants, which go into detail about them, and link to relevant articles and research that may be helpful.
There also are pages (coming soon) on the major anti-oxidants like Glutathione, Superoxide Dismutase and the rest of “the good guys,” and the damaging oxidants Peroxynitrite, SuperOxide, other molecules that may be harmful like Homocysteine, Ammonia, Glutamate and Histamine, and other “bad guys.”
Since this is an emerging field, many people are confused as to how to best approach the nutritional genetic information they now have.
To find a health professional that has been trained in using nutrition to support DNA variants, please see the Find a Health Care Professional portion of this site. They have custom software that can provide detailed reports on your DNA as it relates to nutritional status and ability to detox.
