When we see a group of symptoms, we need to find out where the body is not doing its job well. Symptoms are our signs that somewhere inside, the body is not performing the right steps in sequence necessary to maintain health.
Once we know where that is happening, we can begin to learn more about exactly why and what to do about it.
Our program, developed by Dr. Amy Yasko, zeroes in on where the body is not doing its job optimally: in a major, extended biochemical pathway, called the Methylation Cycle.
The Nutrigenomic Test helps us understand why by pinpointing the exact SNPs located on that Pathway that undermine the body’s ability to perform certain health tasks, and account for the symptoms we see. The Yasko Protocol features recommendations about what to do to manage those SNPs—so that the whole Methylation Cycle works well.
The Methylation Cycle is a biochemical pathway that manages or contributes to a wide range of crucial bodily functions, including:
All these processes help the body respond to environmental stressors, to detoxify, and to adapt and rebuild. That’s why lowered methylation function may contribute to many, major chronic conditions, including:
Methylation is involved in almost every bodily biochemical reaction, and occurs billions of times every second in our cells. That’s why figuring out where the Cycle can better perform its tasks contributes to health improvement, and reduce symptoms.
Learning about the Methylation Cycle is a gradual process. You’ll become more familiar with it—as well as your child’s SNPs—when you follow the program. Dr. Amy suggests that the following information products: the Autism ESP, Neurological Inflammation DVD set, and the Putting it All Together DVD.
