Nutritional Genomics (gene testing) will change the face of diagnosis and treatment in medicine

Why do some people get cancer and others, who live a similar lifestyle, eat similar foods, etc. do not?
Is there a way to predict your likelihood of getting certain diseases and, more importantly, to identify extra steps you need to take in order to not get those diseases?

The answer is now YES.  With advancing technology, some labs in the country now offer ways to test you for minor genetic defects or SNPs (single nucleotide polymorphisms), in order to identify areas where your body does not quite work as optimally as possible and treatments you can use to make up for that.  Doing so can mean all the difference to you when it comes to preventing or treating chronic illness.

As a naturopathic doctor, I am a strong proponent of the idea that a healthy diet and lifestyle will lead to longevity and lasting health.  However, I also now believe that may not be enough.  The type of testing described below can go beyond those effects and give you that extra info you need to maintain health in this ever increasingly toxic world.  

I also like to combine this type of testing with science-based energetic testing, which still provides me information from other avenues that are not available anywhere else.  The combination of the energetic testing I do and functional laboratory analysis (including genetic testing) is the most thorough means of diagnostic evaluation I am aware of and helps to get the most information about you I can, so I can best help you.

Here are some of the diseases known to be much more preventable AND treatable, if you identify and treat your SNPs:

  • Heart disease
  • Arthritis
  • Allergies
  • Osteoporosis
  • Toxicity
  • Oxidative stress
  • Anxiety
  • Cancer
  • Adverse drug reactions

Here is a brochure from one of the labs I use, which describes the testing in more detail:

www.gdx.net/core/patient-brochures/Genomics-Brochure.pdf

Finally, here is an excellent video from one of the top functional medicine docs in the world.  It describes (as an example) how you can use genomic testing to individualize treatment for dementia and memory loss in a way that will garner the most optimal treatment response possible.

If you have a strong family history of chronic disease, if you are worried about the increasingly negative impact of our toxic world on your health, or especially if you are already suffering from chronic disease, please contact me to explore this further.  I offer direct treatment through my private practice in Oregon, as well as long distance consultations via phone or the web.

Osteoporosis risks can be reduced with lifestyle changes and sometimes medication in people with osteoporosis, treatment may involve both. Lifestyle change includes diet and exercise, and preventing falls. Medication includes calcium, vitamin D, bisphosphonates and several others. Thanks.
