Your Genetic Health report
- Eliminate – This section includes foods and synthetic chemicals that are difficult for you to process and may affect your health and mood because of your genetics. You may want to reduce or even eliminate these from your diet. If you cannot completely eliminate them, there are suggestions in step 2 to support your body’s ability to better process those things that may affect your health.
- Support – This section includes suggestions on how to support your genetic mutations leading to nutrient deficiencies. Many nutrients that can be supplied as supplements can also be obtained from food. However, in some cases the amount of food that you would have to eat to reach the necessary amount of nutrients that your body needs due to a genetic mutation might not be reasonably obtained through food alone. We recommend diet as well as supplementation.
- Balance– This section includes an analysis on how your genetics influence methylation. There are 12 different genes involved in proper methylation (not just MTHFR). These are covered in steps 1 and 2 of your Somaticode report. There are many compounding genetic factors that affect methylation balance (these are all taken into account when calculating your Somaticode Methylation Scale number).
- Talk to your Doctor – We screen SNPs related to over 800 health risks. In this section we include only those related to your genetic mutations. This list is not meant to diagnose disease, but only to give direction into further testing. Only a licensed doctor can run and analyze the tests necessary for diagnosis. We do not include the risk of developing cancer. This needs to be done by a genetic counselor.
