Take Hold of Your Life With Genetic Nutritional Counseling

Genetic nutritional counseling can help you understand and take control of your health. Dr. Threlkel offers insight into how genetic variants can affect your health such as the MTHFR variant. Have you ever wondered why your body behaves the way it does?

We all have the same basic physiology and chemical make up, but why do some of us have challenges that others do not? Our genes are the blueprint for our bodies to follow for better or worse. Of course, we can’t change our genes but by understanding the hand we were dealt we can possibly improve the effect.

By doing a simple DNA test we can estimate your body’s tendency toward inflammation and as we’ve seen, where there’s chronic inflammation there is a higher chance of disease.

How would you like to determine once and for all if you are set up to be gluten intolerant and dairy intolerant? We can actually see this in your DNA!

We can also gain insight into digestive function, energy, detoxification, antioxidant production, cardiovascular protection, and of course the famous MTHFR variants. This information is extraordinarily important for those of us who have suffered from chronic conditions. If we can understand the way your body is put together and support areas of weakness then your body can function better.
