Genes hold the DNA that makes us who we are. They are passed on from our parents
and build the structures of our beings. Genetic mutations can occur, causing genetic
disorders. Genetic testing can identify these disorders.
MTHFR is an enzyme that helps the body maintain proper metabolism and muscle growth, as well as is is involved in toxin elimination. An MTHFR mutation may cause elevated homocysteine levels, associated with inflammation and heart disease, birth defects, difficulty during pregnancy and difficulty eliminating toxins from your body. There is evidence to suggest that an underlying gene mutation such as MTHFR can account for fatigue, anxiety, sleep issues and toxin issues.
The COMT gene is involved in helping control hormone levels and chemical signals that influence personality, behaviors, abstract thinking, emotions and short term memory. An underlying COMT gene mutation may account for certain conditions previously overlooked by general blood work results.
Mitochondriopathy is a disease caused by a mutation in the mitochondrial DNA such as Alzheimers and Parkinson's disease.
