Gene Testing – Great Promise for the Future, but Too Early to Replace FRT Chemistry

Someone asked me, “I’ve heard about DNA testing where a drop of blood is put into some sort of machine and treatment is determined from the reading. Could this be a path to healing?”

Genetic profiling, the test that’s referred to here, holds great promise for the future. Yet at the current level of understanding it can also grossly mislead – away from evaluating the homeostatic controls, protein status, and toxic footprints of chemistry.

DNA is known to code for specific proteins, which is good, and thus would seem a good way to know if you have the capability to produce the proteins (or not) that associate with health and disease. Yet, only 2% of our DNA codes for protein. The remaining DNA, as revealed in the profile, still contains the same four letter codes, but serves only as a switching and signaling mechanism – the details of which are largely still a mystery. What is not a mystery is the healthful influence that diet, lifestyle, and the environment are able to exert on the support of gene expression and suppression.

In those situations where we may carry an unhealthy gene, then the effort we make toward tailoring the dietary and lifestyle plans can awaken a compensating gene. So until the doctor doing the genetic testing can assure you that he or she understands the switching and signaling genes per the genetic profile, perhaps you are better off avoiding the test. Currently, you are better off performing a health model-based chemistry and tailoring your patients’ health programs from that perspective.
