Ideally you can find a whole-system health practitioner in your area to consult with about your NDS or other genetic report. It’s important to have someone with medical knowledge and an understanding of your health problems. Genetics is one leg of the three-legged stool that makes up a health evaluation. The other legs are health history and physical exam.
Unfortunately, professionals with an understanding of genetic health reports are rare.
Working with genetic reports requires someone who has had:
- Advanced training in the effects of gene variations on health. It’s not a matter of running questionable statistics about your risk of Alzheimer’s, heart disease, or diabetes – epigenetics has proven that routine incorrect. Far better to have information on what your genes do and how to optimize their function.
- Training in personalized lifestyle medicine. The message of your genes is not “Give me drugs”, it’s “Nurture me.” We have thousands of genes coding for or relying on nutrients to function optimally. At the same time, our daily activities such as exercise, meditation, massage, and relaxation have been shown to calm overactive “bad” genes. Finally, we have hundreds of genes responsible for taking out the trash: detoxification. It’s these three therapies: Detoxification, Nutrition, and Activity that are the D.N.A. for turning on your “good” genes and turning off the “bad” ones. This is what a whole-system doctor can provide for you.
Consultations with Dr. Ballard
Dr. Ballard has limited space available for remote consultations. They are a combination of email and Skype appointments. You can read more about him by clicking on Dr. Ballard page..
All remote consultations must be paid for in advance.
We have available a comprehensive consultation regarding your past health history, supplements, medications, and DNA with concrete therapeutic suggestions based on my 30+ years of whole-system experience.
The Comprehensive Consultation takes place in three parts. The reason for this is that DNA alone cannot make a diagnosis; it must be combined with health history, physical exam, and other laboratory tests that I will review before we meet.

are asked to…
- Fill out a 20+ page health questionnaire and email it to Dr. Ballard.
- Email a list of your medications and supplements including brand names, potency and how often you take them.
- Email copies of your lab results for the past five years.
Ballard will analyse this material before your Skype appointment.
