Epigenetics: Don’t Worry, Be Happy
Does life seem too hard? Do either of your parents have issues and self-medicate with alcohol or drugs? Causes of your mood swings and your pain could be genetic – and there are solutions.
“I always felt bad about being tense and wired and unhappy, like it was somehow my fault,” said Jeannie. “Now I see I have a lot of dopamine. I feel like knowing my genes has helped me understand myself and I can manage it.”
A simple mouth-swab can tell you two things:
- Whether you have something missing genetically, and
- What you can do about it
Interested? Let’s explore.
Inflammation. About 40% of us can’t turn inflammation off in our bodies. This is serious because when our body is focused on inflammation, it can’t make mood stabilizers and it can’t make energy. We feel moody and tired.
Inflammation long-term can cause degeneration of joints, heart disease, cancer, diabetes and depression.
There are 10-12 genes that need to be working. If you have a problem with some of these genes, (you can tell with a mouth swab) a good quality CBD or low-dose naltrexone can help you avoid problems.
Methylation. Methylation means changing the food we eat into something that feeds our cells. If not, you feel:
- Life is difficult
There are about 10-12 genes that need to be working to do this. If you have a genetic reading of your methylation genes, you can calculate how much “gas you have in your tank.”
Recently, a 28-year-old was pushing himself to work and live on 11.8% methylation ability. This causes fatigue and depression. He is now taking methyl folate, Vit B12 and Vit D.
These are chemicals that send messages in our body. Neurotransmitters have much to do with our moods and how we think.
If you have vulnerability in your genes and can’t change glutamate (which makes us alert and anxious) to GABA (which calms us and makes life good) then you are tense all the time, can’t sleep and your muscles are tight.
Once we identify these mutations with a simple mouth swab, we can add on nutrients that change glutamate to GABA and calm down anxious, worrying, irritable people.
