Turn 23andme into an actionable health report

23andme or Ancestry.com raw data

1. Know what you're getting into

READ this entire website. You may also want to watch my DNA videos on Youtube. Go to Tom Ballard ND for several videos on DNA testing and reports. 

Don't feel bad if you feel a little lost - this is new medicine. Medical genetics or epigenetic medicine has only been available for a few years. Genetic testing was not possible just a few years ago. The fusion of genetics and nutrition - nutragenetics - will soon become common place, but that will take a few years. Methylation, mitochondia function and otherr aspects of genetic health reports will someday be a part of your normal medical checkup, give it time. 

23andme or Ancestry.com raw data

2. Order your test kit 

(Skip to #4 if you already have results from 23andme.com or Ancestry.com)

Are you ready for an adventure? 

23andme.com and Ancestry.com both provide raw genetic data which Natural DNA Solutions turns into a 110+ page comprehensive health report. 

Order a test kit

Go to  www.23andme.com or Ancestry.com and purchase a test kit. 

Follow their instructions

Once you have it, follow their directions to send your sample to them.

3. Wait. It takes 4-6 weeks for 23andme or Ancestry.com to send you a kid, receive your sample, and return your results.  Use the time to familiarize yourself with the information on this and 23andme websites.

4. Purchase your Natural DNA Solutions report on this website.

Secure purchase options are provided at the bottom of this page.

5. Send your 23andme.com or Ancestry.com data to Natural DNA Solutions so we can turn it into a health report. 

Once you've gone to the Natural DNA Solutions website and made your payment, go to your 23andme.com or Ancestry.com page and send your data to us. 

FOR OLDER 23andme kits:

A. Go to your home page. Your name in the upper right corner. Click on the down arrow. 

B. A drop down menu will appear. Click on: "Browse Raw Data".

C. You'll now see an overview of your raw data. Click on the "Download" button in the upper right corner.

D. For security reasons, you'll be asked to sign in again. Choose "All DNA data" and click on the Download button.

E. The download will then start. Depending on your program, the file will usually show up on the bottom of your screen. 

F. Right click on the file, then left click on "Show in folder" This will show you where the file is stored. It will be called "genome_(your name). I suggest you move it to somewhere it can be easily found. 

G. Open your email program. Address it to [email protected] and attach the genome file.
    (If you get a message saying the file is too large, that is usually due to your email provider. There are two ways around this:
     1. Borrow someone you trusts email and use it to send the file.
     2. Open a gmail account. It takes a minute and is free.

H. Because this is a large file and the internet can be busy, occasionally the attachment to your email will fail. Usually waiting and trying at another time will solve the problem. Occasionally a faster server and/or computer is needed (see #7 above)

FOR NEW 23andme kits:

1. Go to your home page.Your name will appear in the upper right corner. 
2. Click on tools.
3. On the Welcome to Tools page, in the lower right corner there's a large box marked Raw Data, click on Browse Your Data in the bottom of that box.

9. Your Raw Data file should download. Save it somewhere you can find it. 
10. Attach the file (it will be a zip file) to an email addressed to [email protected]

For Ancesty.com reports:

Follow the directions for downloading your raw data file. 
Email that file (it will be a zip file) to [email protected]

6. When you receive your NDS report, spend quality time with it

Your report is a detailed message from your DNA about your health. Parts of it will be straight-forward and easy to implement (ie Your ability to produce vitamin A is reduced: add vitamin A rich foods and consider a supplement). Other parts may be foreign to you and need the guidance of your healthcare provider to implement (ie You break down certain neurotransmitters too slowly: If your prone to anxiety, consult with your health provider about supplements that improve neurotransmitter activity). 

We suggest you print out your report and organize it in a 3-ring binder. This way you can add new material as it becomes available. We regularly update DNA research material on Facebook: Natural DNA Solutions.

7. Consult with your health practitioner. 

Before implementing the general suggestions from your NDS report, consult with a health practitioner who knows your specific health history. You want someone who understands genetic testing, nutrition, and detoxification therapies that optimize your genetic message. If you do not have access to a health provider who can help you, see our Consultation page for a Skype or Email consultation. 

8. Nurture your nature! 

Experience the positive improvements in your health that come from knowing your genetic makeup and applying scientific nutrition and detoxification.

Our mission is to maximize your genetic potential by providing comprehensive DNA reports and genetic analysis with concrete natural solutions.
