My Health 10-Month Challenge
NutriSync Genetic Test Example

      I just started offering the NutriSync genetic testing at my office. I did one myself, and I could not wait for my results to come in. They just arrived to my personal and private NutriSync account page, and I am posting the results so you can see what the report is like. The NutriSync evaluation tests for 45 genetic differences that can tell a person how well they metabolize toxins, alcohol, salt, saturated fat, how their athletic performance capacity is likely to manifest, and much more. The NutriSync test also provides a report that shows what a person can do to help their personal genetic differences.

      You must fill out a detailed lifestyle survey before sending in a buccal (cheek) swab provided in the kit. Then you mail it off in the pre-paid package provided. It's that easy!

      I filled out my survey honestly (having not done much exercise in the last three months for situational reasons), and the results showed I was under-exercising for me. I was honest about my alcohol consumption (which is regular, but not daily or excessive), and apparently, that is OK for my genetics. I can't deal well with salt or saturated fats, the report says. And I have some liver markers that are less than ideal, which I already suspected. The report helps me to see that even though I have been doing good stuff for my liver (such as milk thistle and bitter greens), that I need more of the cruciferous type vegetables (collards, cabbage, broccoli, brussels sprouts) to help phase ll detoxification. I eat plenty of green veggies, but I need to skew to the cruciferous.

      If you are interested in seeing this report with your name and results on it, just contact the office at 831-475-1995 and let Susan know you would like a NutriSync test kit. The cost is $325. The benefit to getting a NutriSync test rather than "23 and Me" is that you get a lot more markers tested, and you get the full report (23 and Me offers no report). It takes about a month for the NutriSync report to come back to your private NutriSync account page. Click here to see my NutriSync report.

Glenn will teach us methods to enhance the natural energy of springtime in our own bodies through qi gong exercises, meridian stretching, and nutrition/food choices. Having had shared the same offices with Glenn for a number of years, I learned so much from him about "how things work" from a Chinese medical perspective. It is fun and empowering to see the ways that one can enhance one's own energy, performance, and healing powers with simple but directed home techniques.
