YOUR JOURNEY TO A HEALTHY REJUVENATING LIFE STARTS WITH A DNA SCAN
Select the test best for you to start your journey towards optimal health
FIRST STEP: Select A DNA Epigenetics Screen
Select the Option Best For You
"I want to eat better and lose weight"
This DNA scan is designed for people that have selected our nutritional planner program and are interested in meal planning and coaching from our professional nutritionists.
This comprehensive report provides you a list of predisposed food allergies, intolerances, and sensitivities, including a detailed list of nutritional deficiencies and the top 50 foods and supplements your body needs for optimal health.
"I want a complete health analysis"
This DNA scan is designed to give you an integrated, complete health perspective considering every system in your body. This scan includes a comprehensive analysis of macro and micro nutritional deficiencies and allergies (food and environmental).
The test screens for pathogens, diseases, parasites, and toxins. The report is easy to read and provides recommendations based on the findings.
"I am an athlete interested in optimizing my performance"
This DNA scan is designed for athletes striving to achieve higher levels of performance while decreasing recovery time. The scam assesses your ATP capacity, fatigue resistance, recovery factors, inflammatory markers, lactic acid buffering levels, anemic indicators, protein metabolism, D3 fatigue, O2 capacity, hydration level, hormone balance, and much more.
Use science to achieve your fitness goals!
STEP 2: Send Your Hair Sample and then Receive Your Report
After ordering your report, a hair sample collection kit will be mailed to you with a pre-paid return envelop.
After our lab receives your sample, the report will be emailed to you, typically within 72 hours of receiving your sample.
Based on the Program selected, you can schedule a meeting with your Health Advisor to review the report or your assigned Health Advisor will be in touch with you to begin your program.
STEP 3: Schedule an Appointment
4 Key Points:
Epigenetics Controls Genes. This is achieved through (a) nature: epigenetics is what determines a cell's specialization (e.g., skin cell, blood cell, hair cell, liver cells, etc.) as a fetus develops into a baby through gene expression (active) or silencing (dormant); and (b) nurture: environmental stimuli can also cause genes to be turned off or turned on.
Epigenetics is Everywhere. What you eat, where you live, who you interact with, when you sleep, how you exercise, even how fast you age - all of these events eventually cause chemical modifications around the genes that will turn those genes on or off. Additionally, in certain diseases, such as cancer or Alzheimer's, various genes could be switched into the opposite state, away from the normal/healthy state.
Epigenetics Makes Us Unique. Even though we are all human, why do some of us have blonde hair or darker skin? Why do some of us hate the taste of mushrooms or eggplants? Why are some of us more sociable than others? The different combinations of genes that are turned on or off is what makes each one of us unique. Furthermore, there have been indications that some epigenetic changes can be inherited.
Epigenetics is Reversible. With two copies, one inherited from each parent, of 20,000+ genes, what will be the result of the different combinations of genes being turned on or off? The possibilities are enormous! But if we could map every single cause and effect of the different combinations, and if we could reverse the gene's state to keep the good while eliminating the bad... then we could, hypothetically, cure cancer, slow aging, stop obesity, and so much more. This is the direction of Luminary Wellness.
Can We Change Our DNA?
When we analyze a person's health at a cellular level, the epigenetics of the person's DNA is of primary importance to us. While we are born with a specific DNA code, the epigenetics of our genome can actually be changed. Using an automobile as an example, like DNA, it is very difficult to change the design of a car, but it's color, wheels, and broken tail light can all easily be changed. The science of epigenetics is based on the items of DNA that can be changed. Scientifically speaking, Epigenetics is the study of biological mechanisms that will switch genes on and off based on environmental changes.
The relationship between DNA and epigenetics can be best described as follows. DNA gives the instructions for various functional proteins to be produced inside the cell, and epigenetics provides the specific details of the instructions generated by the DNA. In other words, Epigenetics affects how genes are read and understood by the cells, and subsequently, whether the cells should produce relevant proteins - which are the building blocks of your body. Bodily diseases, ailments, and cancer express themselves through epigenetics. By managing your environment, you have the control to turn these genes off. Therefore, the science of Epigenetics proves that we do not need to be victims of our genetic inheritance.
