Natural DNA Solutions
Here you can hear my 7/18 webinar on integrating gentics into clinical practice and nutrition. Genetic medicine has arrived, but not how you might think. Yes, there is a place for high-tech manipulation of genes, but mostly what medicine needs is an understanding of how to modify gene outcome through Detoxification, Nutrition, and Activity - These are the DNA therapies that support our DNA health.
I'm proud to announce the publication of my newest book, Genetic Health ReportsThis is the first book that surveys the various genetic report services that are available. Genetic health reports are an essential bridge between genetic data and clinical utility. Genetic health reports take the raw genetic data and convert it into a report that both interprets the data and provides guidance on how to turn off bad genes and turn on the good ones. Genetic Health Reports is available from Amazon as a paper book or e-book.
An article on research showing that herbs influence gene expression. One of the unique benefits of the NDS report is the inclusion of foods and herbs that you can use (or avoid) to improve your genetic outcome.

Hope to see you there!
We're exposed to 84,000 chemicals and only 1% have been tested. These chemicals impact our genetic health.
Recent article about the problems with genetic testing companies.
My response: Any company that starts spouting % risk of disease based only on genetics is either fraudulent of doesn't understand genetics. Genes do NOT determine your health. Health and disease are the outcome of genes and lifestyle (or, as we used to say, Nature and Nurture). The science of epigenetics shows us that two genetically identical people can have vastly different health depending on how they live their lives. What you want from a genetic health report is a description of what genes do and how you can optimize gene function. (PS: it can be done anonymously)
