I will continue to take new clients who are in my mail queue before Feb 15th, and continue ongoing full support for all clients afterwards. I am still working through emails to catch up, so if you are in my mail queue, please be patient and I will get back to you to schedule an appointment for the March timeframe.
I love what I do and continue to learn/research during my "fun time", but near term completing next Compendium (vaccines and adjuvants) before next Autism One conference, is a priority. I will accept new clients again in May 2017. Again, I will continue ongoing support for new and existing clients that are in my mail queue before Feb 15th.
1/2017 -So, Im back after 5 days of intense 10 hour days of neurofeedback, with electrodes glued to my brain, and veiwing brain traces. The take-away, is to make time for meditation to increase alpha waves and increase parasympathetic response (counter to stress response and high sympathetic rsponse). All folks with autoimmune issues, tend towards sympathetic response. COMT V158M ++ SNPs are in play as are MTHFR SNPs. The stress response (sympathetic) is like tires digging a path in the snow. Once the path is dug in the snow, then "tires keep tracking there". The trick is to get the tires out of the well-worn tire tracks and onto to other tracks that are calming via increasing parasympathetic nervous system response.
I'll post the equipment and supplements to increase parasympathetic reponse after I figure out the particulars and personal testing.
Dr Andrew Rosenburg at http://redmountainclinic.com/meet-dr-andrew/ in US, Meggan at Snowdrop Herbals in US, or Carolyn Ledowski in AU and Europe can assist you after I temporarily suspend taking new clients. You can find Carolyn at MTHFRsupportAU. Sterling Hill at MTHFRsupport.com can also assist in interpreting your Variant Report as she and her team do the front-line research that others copy and follow.
Each new client Consult requires 6-8 hours (prep time, 3 hour conversation with Client and then writing follow-up Plan based on Consultation, medical info and health history), and then follow-up emails and testing/tweaking their Individualized Initial Plan.
At Life Zone Wellness we incorporate the principles of Functional Medicine, knowledge of individual genetics, knowledge of biochemical pathways, a comprehensive health history and often cutting edge testing, to provide you with an individualized Initial Health Plan. The individualized Health Plan is also based on a face-to-face (or Skype/phone) 3 hour Initial Consultation to gather additional data beyond what can be written in a questionnaire. We will also review your SNPs (single nucleotide polymorphisms) and discuss. After the Initial Consultation, you will be receiving your Initial Individualized Health Plan. The Plan may take a few days to complete/get to you after the Consultation.
The Initial Individualized Plan will be tweaked over time, based on subsequent 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. Again, dietary changes may be required but will be phased-in.
When health is re-established, we consolidate/reduce supplements to a minimum, keeping dietary/lifestyle changes in place. The process typically takes 5-6 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. Testing such as the Genova DIagnostics GI Effects test, the NutrEval test, OATs, Cyrex 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 required 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. They address symptoms and not underlying causes. By providing foundational nutrients, layering-in customized methylation support in the proper sequence based on genetics, supporting digestion/assimilation of foods, supporting mitochondrial and membrane function, supporting balanced neurotransmitters, and more, are what are bodies require to maintain healthy homeostasis.
* Nutritional Status needs analysis to achieve normal physiological function. Assessment may include appropriate functional testing via:
Precision Hormones - DUTCH
* Observations from case history, physical signs, laboratory tests, and nutrition/lifestyle analysis.
* Referral to a licensed physician or other health care professionals as needed.
* MTHFR Variant Report Analysis and Review.
I recommend Sterling App (MTHFRsupport.com) which "grabs" raw data from 23andMe results and generates a comprehensive Variant Report PDF.
The most recent version of Sterlings App is 2.5, and is 55+ pages including biochemical pathway drawings. More to come as standard methylation biochemical pathways are researched and drilled-down to increasingly individual details that other reports do not include.
* Lifestyle & Diet modifications are part of the picture in many instances, so please be prepared to make them if need be.
The Compendium 1 is currently 330 pages and includes the following SNP categories:
- Phase 1 and 2 Liver Detox SNPs
- Methylation SNPs
- Alcohol SNPs
- Histamine SNPs
- Neurotransmitter SNPs
- Mitochondrial SNPs (Electron Transport Chain)
This SNPBit Compendium 1 is a compilation of four years of research gathered by Sterling and Cynthia, and our associate Carolyn Ledowsky.
The current SNPBit Compendium 1 will be updated shortly. Its next edition will include updates to the current enzymes/SNPs, additional sections/pathways such as the Pentose Phosphate Pathway, and more.
