About 3 weeks ago, Arlene Dickinson, on Dragons’ Den, commented that despite all the advertised DNA tests, none of them really helped you know what to do about health risks.
Then I read in the paper that genetic scientists had won the Nobel prize in physiology and medicine for their discovery of ‘clock’ genes. (See link below.)
At the same time, the CBC news reported that US researchers are getting ready to recruit a million people to study how genes, habits and environment affect health outcomes. (See link below.)
To top it all off, I am reading Siddhartha Mukherjee’s book, ‘The Gene’.
Just as Dr. Kerr predicted to us in 2001, the future of medicine is in dealing with genetic variations. Drug companies are busy trying to figure out which drugs will be successful with what variations of people.
We had realized that one-size fits all medicine didn’t fit any of us very well.
I am sure you know where I am going with this –our individualized approach to digestion, to diet, to supplements, to exercise, to environment, to everything really.
In a few weeks, the book on our Nutrient Scent Test research will be available for $19.95. It contains several case studies for each nutrient, considerations in testing each nutrient, cofactors to test, and strategies for increasing or lowering each nutrient too. Mailable test kits are available to go with the book and we still have the analysis of the test results growing ever more effective in our think tank.
Recently, I discovered by the scent test, that my magnesium status had improved, saving me money on supplements. On the other hand, a close friend discovered by the scent test that he suddenly needed some N’acetycysteine. As long as a person is alive, the scent test can be helpful.
Although we have done a substantial amount of work on individualizing supplements, there is still so much that could be done to help people. The book is throwing the torch to those who want to find out more.
Arlene — are you listening?
