Everyone is born with their unique genetic blueprint. DNA in the body is fixed for life, however the expression of the genes and health consequences are affected by factors such as nutrition, emotions, stress, internal chemical and hormonal state of the body and external factors such as radiation, heavy metal toxicity, pollution, solvents and more.The choices we make today may impact long-term health of both us and generations to come. Epigenetics is the study of how these factors influence the expression of genes.
We receive one copy of a gene from our father and one from our mother. There are 3 possibilities when examining a gene: either both copies are normal, one copy id mutated or both are mutated. A mutation can be viewed aa a "typo" made when the genetic material is copied. Each gene encodes for a specific prtoein in the body which may be an enzyme, hormone, nueotransmitter etc. When that gene is mutated, that protein's function will be not be completely normal - it may function at a slower rate or faster rate, be deficient or regulated differently. Epigenetic testing allows us to discover th egenetic predisposityion and to applyepigenetic changes, whther it ne in lifestyle, nutrition or supplementation to adjust for substances that may be deficient or over-abundant due to decreased break-down or lack of detoxification.The EpigeneticsRx test is a simple blood spot test done in the comfort of your home and allows the examination of 29 different genes which encompass some og the body's most important functions. The kit will be mailed to you and after performing the test it is to e mailed back in the prepaid envelope provided.
