We are all affected by genetic mutations that inhibit the “methylation pathway”. The study of this is called epigenetics. Genetic therapy for the methylation pathway is a major part of the detoxification process available in Portage at Vitality Healthcare. Genetic therapy can potentially affect disease processes, brain chemistry, and metabolism. These mutations that are passed on from your parents may increase your risk for disease or disorder expression, poor health, and other chronic issues.
At Vitality Healthcare in Portage, our methylation gene testing and epigenetic protocol will focus on identifying gene variations called SNPs. These are parts of the gene that influence how well your cells function. We will be able to determine what SNPs are overactive, underactive, or poorly functioning. Using nutrition, we can override or redirect these SNPs that may compromise health. The epigenetic methods at Vitality Healthcare in Portage nourish and detoxify these genetic pathways, such as SNPs, so the body is able to function at its most optimal capacity.
