Looking for a holistic approach to health and wellness? This telehealth service gives you the ability to speak with a professional holistic integrated health professional. If you have completed a DNA Epigenetics health scan, this service can be used to speak with a health professional about the results of your test.
HOLISTIC HEALTH CONSULT
COMPLETE HEALTH ANALYSIS WITH CONSULT Complete full body DNA Epigenetics health analysis report including health risks, food Intolerances, identified diseases and ailments, nutritional deficiencies, and hormone balances with recommendations to address health concerns and optimize your health. Includes a live personal consult with a professional holistic health advisor.
OPTIMAL NUTRITION REPORT
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.
DNA GUT ANALYSIS Address and fix gut problems. This comprehensive gut analysis measures the microbiome using advanced metagenomics to get to the source of gut problems. In this scan, DNA sequencing is used to identify microorganisms in the sample and their impact on health. Bioinformatics enables the data to be consolidated into a meaningful report with information to address the problem.
HORMONE BALANCE TEST
To restore the vital balance of hormones, it is necessary to have an accurate measurement of hormone levels. This test will provide time-based measurement showing the relationship between different levels essential for balancing hormone levels. Saliva is required for this test.
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.
