Welcome to Life Zone Wellness!

NOTE;  I'm downsizing/moving and rehabbing a condo through Feb and all that entails. Please know that I will respond to all emails and continue scheduling new client appointments, beginning in late Feb.  If I do not respond to your email within 3 days, please resend. I'll be back in the swing of things by March 1st. Can't wait!

At Life Zone Wellness we incorporate the principles of Functional Medicine, individual genetics, a robust knowledge of biochemical pathways, a comprehensive health history and cutting edge testing, to provide you with an individualized health plan.  The individualized health plan is also based on a 2 1/2 to 3 hour Initial Consulation to gather additional data beyond what can be written in a questionaire, held in-person, via Skype or telephone.   We will also review your SNPs and discuss.  After the Initial Consultation, you will be receiving your Initial Individualized Plan.  Lately, the Plan may take a few days to complete/get to you after we have the Consultation.  The Initial Individualized Plan will be tweaked over time, based on test results and health improvments.  The goal is to address each biochemical pathway via dietary/lifestyle changes and to ramp up nutrients slowly in a particular order.  Then, when health is re-established, to reduce supplements to a minimum, keeping dietary/lifestyle changes in place.  The process typically covers 6 months, with follow-up and interim "touching base" when needed. Some folks require less time; some more.

We recognize biochemical individuality, based on "expressing" single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs).  Testing such as the GI Effects test, the NutrEval test, OATs and others shed light on how your body's genetics are expressing and reacting to your particular environment, foods, exposures, viruses, bacteria, toxins and stress and more.  Our "whole" approach to collecting and analyzing all of the information discussed above, gives us a unique overall perspective (not silo) and allows us to suggest foundational nutrient, lifestyle and dietary changes to optimize your health and body's ability to heal and "right itself".

Remember, the likes of SSRIs, PPIs, etc, are not nutrients/molecules that our bodies utilize to maintain healthy homeostasis.  Rather, providing foundational nutrients, laying-in customized methylation support at the proper time, supporting digestion/assimilation of foods, supporting mitochondrial and membrane function, supporting balanced neurotransmitters, and more, are what are bodies require to maintain healthy homeostasis.

 NEWS & Offers

~ Sterling App, version 2 has been released.  The App is priced at only $30 for many SNPs.  Click the link at left sidebar to order yours!


~ After running you Variant report via Serlings App,  consider a profile of your gut microbiome via uBiome.  This swab DNA test will give detailed information about the micro-organisms that live in the various locations of your body.  They offer analysis of 5 key locations (e.g., GI, nasal, etc)

Here is a short Utube video:


~ has released the video jump-drive and CDs of the comprehensive 2 day class that explains how to combine Functional Medicine with genetics.  The Seminar provides a 'usable" roadmap for Practioners, including what testing to do with what groupings of SNPs.  

The Speakers are; Sterling, Shawn Bean, Dr Jess Arimine, and myself.  

The separate videos are broken down with an introduction of SNPs plus either GI/autoimmune, neurotransmitters, HPATG axis, SNPs.   

Besides SNP info, included are variations of a step wise approach, tweaked or course, for individuals and their SNP groups and their health history.  History and lifestlye always need to be considered, along with SNPs.  There is NO COOKIE CUTTER APPROACH!!!


~ Lack of proper methylation during fetal development, is at the root of cleft palate development, among other things. Operation Smile is a volunteer group of Dr.s and nurses who provide surgery to repair cleft palates. I am pledging 5% of my income to Operation Smile.  If you are like minded, please call 1-888-322-1583.  Having the surgery to repair a cleft palates changes a child's life!! 

The surgery is done by volunteer plastic surgeons, and the cost per child is $240.  Thank you!  You can also mail a check to:

The SNPBit Compendium Book 1 - ORDER HERE!


SNPBitCompendium 1 is your Go-To reference for SNP information in one place. Included are Overviews for a quick look, cited research for a further look and their associated links, and "Our Two Cents", including clinical pearls from our Practitioner's perspective. Catalytic activity, Nutrient and non-nutient cofactors are included for each enzyme where applicable. Pathway drawings are also included and serve to visually place individual enzymes/SNPs in their enzymatic pathways for easy association to your Variant Report.
This information is formatted in an easy to understand dictionary style. We recommend printing out the Pathways when reviewing SNPs in your individual Variant Reports.
The Compendium 1 is designed to assist both the Layman and Practitioner in making sense of a Variant Report from Sterling's App, or a PDF list of SNPs generated by other Apps.
This Compendium 1 is 330 pages and includes the following SNPs :
- Phase 1 and 2 Liver Detox SNPs
- Methylation SNPs
- Alcohol SNPs
- Histamine SNPs
- Neurotransmitter SNPs
- Mitochondrial SNPs (Electron Transport Chain)
This Compendium 1 is a compilation of four years of research gathered by Sterling and Cynthia, and our associate Carolyn Ledowsky, an ND in Australia and, assisting with edits and key inputs. This is a labor of love by us, as we strived to provide information to those who are attempting to understand SNPs on their Variant Report, and their application, without the hassle of solo researching each SNP.
The future SNPBit Compendium 2 will include immune system SNPs, grouped auto-immune SNPs and cardiovascular SNPs as well the pentose phosphate pathway SNPs and more.  I am targetting Febuary of 2016 as the new Immune System Variant Report is currently under construction.
