ENCORE: DNA testing: Is it ready for Prime-Time? Part 1
September 27, 2023
Dr. Sharon Hausman-Cohen, Chief Medical Director of IntellxxDNA, shares her perspective on the genetic testing revolution. What’s the difference between a mutation and a SNP (single nucleotide polymorphism)? How does the IntellxxDNA test differ from, say, 23andMe? Isn’t it potentially scary to find out you have a “bad” gene, like the ApoE4 gene that’s associated with Alzheimer’s Disease risk? Can genetic risk factors be overcome with diet, exercise, and targeted supplements? IntellxxDNA pinpoints obesity genes, genes that predispose to diabetes and heart disease, macular degeneration, autoimmune disorders, thyroid problems and osteoporosis. Certain SNPs predict the likelihood of neurodegenerative diseases when exposed to environmental toxins like mercury and glyphosate. Others may dictate higher requirements for antioxidants, B vitamins, magnesium, vitamin D, and choline. Why is the IntellxxDNA test only available through health practitioners? Some critics say genetic testing is only in its infancy and not yet ready for primetime—is this mistaken? What can genomic testing tell us about remedial strategies for autism?

ENCORE: How To Slow, and Even Reverse, Our Biological Clocks, Part 1
September 6, 2023
Dr. Kara Fitzgerald is the author of a landmark study that demonstrates conclusively that lifestyle impacts, not just disease, but the aging process itself. It does so via epigenetic modification, the mechanism by which environmental factors orchestrate the expression of genes. Dr. Fitzgerald has incorporated her findings in a new book "Younger You: Reduce Your Bio Age and Live Longer, Better." She details how diet, sleep, exercise, stress reduction, and avoidance of toxic chemicals can slow, and even reverse, our biological clocks. The key is DNA methylation, which can be assessed via commercially-available saliva test kits. Dr. Fitzgerald lists specific supplements that may augment the benefits of a low-carb, plant-rich diet incorporating high-quality animal protein. Her pioneering research validates the far-reaching benefits of natural lifestyle interventions. Click HERE for part 2.
