Now you can understand how your DNA may have predisposed you to Adrenal Fatigue.
In today’s highly demanding world, STRESS seems to be a 24-7 thing. When you develop burnout and exhaustion, a perfect storm has developed. A combination of your environment with your genetics.
Now we can measure your genetics, and see how it has contributed to your Adrenal Fatigue.
Your DNA contains the genetic instructions to make enzymes that regulate homeostasis in the body. Yes, we often think of the adrenal glands are your stress-fighting glands, and they are. However, at the cellular level, your genes the major puzzle pieces of your DNA, ultimately control every life-sustaining event in your body.
How you deal with stress, release adrenaline, hormones, focus, concentrate, return to baseline, produce energy, repair your cells, settle the inflammation, remove toxins, fight off infection, control your immune system, digest and assimilate your nutrients, your cardiovascular system, are ALL under the control of your DNA.
All in all, DNA science is complex and confusing, even to most doctors. However, now you can navigate this key topic and better understand the root causes of disease.
We utilize the MethylGenetic Nutrition Analysis, ultimately creating a genetic variant nutritional assessment report. This combines the ground-breaking web-based software program, with Dr. Rosen’s experience to educate you on how your genetic information is setting the stage for your exhaustion and burnout.
Understanding The Adrenal Fatigue, DNA, Environmental Connection
It has often been said that mainstream medicine is 17 years behind the research being published today. However, it’s no longer guesswork for those in the know. So much research is available today that the root cause of most illness is INFLAMMATION.
One of the main functions of the adrenal glands is to produce the bodies main anti-inflammatory…cortisol. However, with repeated stress, the adrenals being to malfunction. As a result, the presence of free radicals and oxidative stress accumulate. However, it is actually your DNA, and the enzymes coded by it, that control how free radicals and oxidative stress are dealt with.
The most common free radicals are superoxide, peroxynitrite, hydrogen peroxide, and the dreaded hydroxyl radical. At the 30,000 ft view level, the adrenals are called to support the elimination of these free radicals.
However, at ground zero, controlled by your DNA, antioxidants need to be produced in an ample and appropriate amount. If they don’t do an effective job, your body will breakdown.
Along with your HPA axis/Adrenal gland function, your inherited genetic susceptibilities may be created a demand and supply problem. High demand for anti-oxidants, and low supply.
There are many diseases related to free radicals and oxidative stress, including:
Thanks to new advances in technology, a simple saliva test today can measure 602,000 pieces of your DNA. This is an important development because everyone has some level of genetic variation in their DNA, even though it was once thought to be a rare occurrence. Because variants can impact your ability to make and use different nutrients critical for circulatory, immune and even emotional health, everyone is susceptible, in their own unique way, to potential health implications.
The MethylGenetic software combines DNA data from the functional genomic DNA Kit, with a symptom questionnaire and laboratory data to create reports that identify your nutritional weaknesses and then create your custom nutritional protocol. This protocol will supplement your missing nutrients and antioxidants, or use nutrients and herbs to aid in the production of needed enzymes to ultimately reduce the damaging oxidants and support healthy cells.
Now through genetic saliva testing, we can measure your ability to make and use enzymes that are critical components of your health. Some of the more significant enzymes include:
GLUTATHIONE – detoxifies the body and controls inflammation
SOD – neutralizes the superoxide free radical
BH4 – supports the neurotransmitters and helps the body detox ammonia
NEUROTRANSMITTERS – aids emotional health
CHOLINE – enhances liver health
FOLATE – stimulates cell and neurotransmitter health
SAMe – supports many bodily functions
B12 – makes blood cells and supports a healthy nervous system
When in balance, these enzymes can control free radicals, keep your cells healthy, and rebuild new cells effectively. Thus, you may look and feel younger and remain healthy and vibrant as you age.
When you purchase The Genetic Variant Nutritional Assessment, you will get Dr. Rosen’s interpretation and nutritional report, detailing how your genetic susceptibilities are creating the perfect storm of exhaustion in your body. You will also be provided with the proper lifestyle, dietary, and nutritional protocols, based on your genetics, to customize your personalized Adrenal Fatigue Recovery program.
