What if you could intervene 10 or 20 or even 30 years before you ever get sick? What if you could scientifically predict what's coming your way in terms of illness and disease?
In this new paradigm of health, where the perspective is not so much focused on individual symptoms, but more focused on the general optimization of the body, new tools and analysis methods like genetic testing are giving consumers important pieces to their health puzzle.
But your genetics don't tell the full story.
Little variations in our DNA (called SNPs or "snips") represent the potential for certain diseases like cancer to develop, but as we discussed yesterday
, what matters is whether those gene SNPs are expressed, or "turned on."
So how do you know for sure?
New scientific tools like IQYOU are now overlaying multiple sets of health data and biomarkers together to find the commonalities and discover new linkages between them.
"In the medicine of the future," Jan says, "I would say that everybody should have genetic testing and everybody should have regular metabolomic testing to see other toxins in the body.
"Is there inflammation? Is DNA being broken down? Are there any early warning signs of cardiovascular disease or cancer or Alzheimer's or any of these problems? Autoimmune disease?"
The human body has an amazing capacity to heal, when it's given the right ingredients and the obstacles to healing are removed.
By combining three core data sets together, looking at:
1️⃣ your DNA
2️⃣ your epigenetics (diet, lifestyle, sleep, stress, etc.)
3️⃣ your biochemistry (toxic load, inflammation levels, histamine levels, hormone levels, etc.)
...we can make precise, data-driven recommendations that are personalized to you and your unique health situation.
