Exploring Genomics & Genomic Potentials Through Dietary & Lifestyle Choices
On this page we will explore how Genomics (Epigenetics and Nutrigenomics) directly affects our health, and capacity to detoxify efficiently.
We will also explore why some people are prone to storing toxins, compared to others who appear to get away with abusing their body and health!
Then we’ll look at how you can harness your genomic potential through dietary and lifestyle choices to support recovery and avoid poor health. This is especially true if you have inherited a large number of gene-enzyme deletions (SNPs) presenting in your Genomic Blueprint which predispose you to chronic health issues such as: Diabetes, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, ME, Alzheimer’s, Myocarditis, Autism Spectrum disorders, and so on.
The fact is, our human body is wired like an energy circuit board. When metabolic pathways function optimally due to optimum nutrient intake and avoidance of environmental toxicants, then mitochondrial performance and energy levels remain optimal, and your body functions properly. All is well!
However, health problems arise from poor food choices, unhealthy lifestyle, and environmental pollution, which all cause cell energy to decline, cell damage and then cell death. Once the cells are under threat, the Cell Danger Response kicks in as a self-protective mechanism, causing our cells to remain low in energy, sometimes for a long time. And, if the Cell Danger Response drags on for too long, our body will then become susceptible to many health issues, such as sleep disorders, pain syndromes, and hormone and mental health imbalances and every other chronic condition known to man.
What Is The Cell Danger Response?
This is a term originally coined by Dr Robert Naviaux, who has written about this mechanism extensively. What the Cell Danger Response describes is the mechanism by which our mitochondria (our cell battery and natural energy source) detects danger in the form of a pathogen, such as a virus, bacteria, parasite, mould and environmental chemical / toxin. The danger could even be mental stress, emotional stress, biochemical stress, or electrical stress from toxic EMFs.
So, your body will sense and detect the danger from within the mitochondrial bilipid layer. Furthermore, the long-term consumption of rancid toxic fats causes the lipid bilayer to become inflexible and stiff over time. So much so, that eventually even our natural metabolic by-products ‘perceived by our cells as toxicity’ are no longer able to get out from the cells! This metabolic waste, otherwise known as Reactive Oxygen Species (superoxide, hydrogen peroxide etc), is unable to exit our cells subsequently instructs cell death (apoptosis). Apoptosis is a self protective mechanism so that cells do not become cancerous.
There is a second piece to this too. Along this journey our cells can also trigger the Cell Danger Response (CDR) in order to prevent viruses that we have acquired (either naturally or by force) from thriving on our mitochondrial energy too. Viruses naturally hijack our mitochondria for their own survival game and gains. Our cells in their wisdom sense this, and so lower the energy output to starve the virus. However, the job is not always done adequately – usually due to long term stress resulting in lowered immunity, depleted nutrient resources and so on. We can then be left with persistent pathogenic loading whilst the CDR remains switched on. This is other-wise known as C.F.S, M.E, and Long-COVID.
How Genomic Wellness Testing Supports Your Health & Detoxification To Return To Health
As we have established, Genomics is the study of your genome and how it interacts with the environment and your lifestyle choices. Genomics tells us why some people are more likely to struggle with the elimination of environmental toxins and metabolic wastes, and why these types go on to develop chronic diseases such as MCAS, Myocarditis, Alzheimer’s, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Diabetes and Cancer. Genomics provides insight into our personality traits, dietary trends, requirements for higher doses of some nutrients, metabolic patterns, and fitness traits. Genomics analyses many traits and predispositions whilst providing insight into why some diets and lifestyle choices will work better for you, than others.
At DetoxNutrition.com we use two styles of Genomic Testing and Genomic Reporting to support your health, detoxification and wellness, whether you are seeking optimal health or recovery from a serious disease. These two styles of testing can be used separately and together depending on your budget and whether or not you choose to work with a trained Genomics Practitioner.
Both styles of reporting provide clear and concise information to help support a tailored lifestyle, diet, and supplement regime, all of which are likely to significantly improve your health.
However, the reports that DetoxNutrition.com can generate from your 23&Me or Ancestry gene testing are much more user friendly for the layperson than the SmartDNA option.
The SmartDNA option is a more advanced form of Genomic Profile, which is use-friendly when working with a trained practitioner.
DetoxNutrition Delivers Two Types of Genomic Wellness Reports
Self Decode is a genomic service that utilises raw DNA files such as Ancestry and 23&Me, to analyse genetic variants. The system produces numerous reports in a stunningly easy-to-read format. All reports are categorised by Health subject, are in depth and user-friendly for those who have already invested in Ancestry and 23&Me raw data testing which are typically very limited, and impossible to make sense of on their own.
Our Genomic Wellness Reports delivered from Self Decode software considers an overwhelming number of SNPs that will define your genomic health risks and optimum wellness profile – whilst offering lifestyle, diet, and supplement recommendations to counteract genomic predispositions.
To use Self Decode, you will need to upload raw data from either 23&Me or Ancestry.
It is not necessary to work with a Genomics Practitioner to read these reports.
For those who have not yet completed a 23&Me or Ancestry raw data report, this single swab test covers over 160 DNA variations in a single test. The SmartDNA Genomic Wellness Test is the most affordable, scientifically up to date and comprehensive analysis that DetoxNutrition.com has come across in over a decade of studying Genomics profiling. It delivers a number of rs IDs per gene (see below) in a no-nonsense practical format. Less is more with this test and report. It’s an ideal entry into genomic testing when working with a knowledgeable and experienced Genomics Wellness practitioner toward your personalised optimal wellness programme.
- SmartDNA test covers 160 DNA variations
- It’s comparatively affordable
- It’s scientifically up to date
- It provides rich data with clear actionable steps to counteract poor health potentials
