Nutrigenetic Testing

Unlike other labs, we are not looking at just 1 or 2 genes.  Looking at isolated genes will not give us the whole picture.  We are looking at entire pathways.   For example just looking at the MTHFR genes is looking at just 2 of the 12 genes in the methylation pathway.   A major methylation defect can easily be missed this way.

Our test looks at five different areas of possible genetic defects.
  • Methylation (MTHFR)
  • Detoxification
  • Neurochemistry
  • Energy Production
  • Inflammation Control.
  • And a bonus section of health precautions including hypertension and thyroid disorders
Defects or SNPs in any of thee pathways can cause symptoms such as fatigue, anxiety, depression, insomnia, GI Issues, chronic infections, and neurosensory disorders.   Finding where the SNPs are will allow us to make biochemical changes to allow the pathways to express properly despite the defects.
Here is a list of the genes we look at:

Our test is a huge value at less than $1000 for testing over 55 gene mutations.   Some labs charge a $200-300 for just 1 or 2 genes.
