StrateGeneTM Report Interpretation $375.00

After years of digging through research, Dr. Ben Lynch and his team have identified key SNPs which are clinically relevant, and more importantly, which ones are not!


Looking at our combinations of SNPs is not only fascinating, but inexplicably valuable in terms of unlocking the keys to your continued good health and eliminating future health conditions.


For example, a combination of MTHFD1, MTHFR and PEMT increase the need for choline and the intake of leafy greens. If one is a vegan or vegetarian (that does not eat many eggs), then choline deficiency is highly likely.  I see this with my clients on a regular basis.


So, if you're like me, you must consume leafy greens and eggs and ensure you're getting active vitamin B12 as methylcobalamin / hydroxocobalamin if you can't handle methyl B12.

To bypass this issue, you could use phosphatidylcholine and methylfolate as well - along with folinic acid.  I will tell you that having PEMT, MTHFD1 and MTHFR are very COMMON.  This is one reason that a vegetarian diet might make you feel horrible.  It depends on your SNPs as well as your blood type.


I am an AB blood type and I require protein and lots of leafy greens, according to Dr. D'Adamo's books, and I feel I do well with such diet.  But if you're type O+ you will require high protein.  It's all about blood type and SNPs.  Here's the PUB MED abstract. 


WHAT IS STRATEGENE?

-StrateGene is a genetic reporting tool that uses 23andMe data.

-By limiting report data to well-researched SNPs, we can formulate a targeted testing and treatment plan --> faster.

-For the last 2+ years, Dr. Lynch and his research team have analyzed SNP after SNP.

-In order for the SNP to meet inclusion criteria, it had to meet these standards:

1.  The SNP is found in 23andMe (current or past chips or versions)

2.  The SNP is found in a gene that belongs to a biochemical pathway that is covered by         StrateGene.

3.  There is a critical mass of published research related to the SNP.

4.  The SNP has potential clinical implications as determined by published research.


WHAT DOES STRATEGENE PROVIDE?

-SNPs identified by 23andMe

-Clinically relevant and well-researched SNPs

-Factors which influence each SNP

-Description of each SNP

-Kinetic variation

-Associated conditions and symptoms according to research


HOW IS STRATEGENE LAID OUT?

Section 1 – Overview tables of known SNPs with gene, rs id number, variant name, risk allele, and genotype. In addition “GSTT1 deletion”, if detected, plus the predicted NAT2 acetylator phenotype.

Section 2 – Results for each pathway with description, SNPs overlaid onto Pathway Planners, and details on SNPs found. The gene and SNP details include influencing factors on genes, SNP kinetic impact, and potential associated symptoms and conditions.

Section 3 – A discussion of “bonus SNPs”. These are SNPs for which there is not yet Pathway Planner graphics available, but which the research team wanted to include for added value.



WHAT DOES THE STRATEGENETM INTERPRETATION INCLUDE?

  • Overview of the symbols and colors and what they mean
  • Discussion and review of each pathway and corresponding SNPs; including folate, methionine, transsulfuration, biopterin, histamine, and bonus pathways
  • A comprehensive health history, family history, symptomatology, labs, and genetics will be discussed during the consult.
  • Lifestyle, food and supplement recommendations can only be recommended with  a thorough and comprehensive consult.  We are not looking at SNPs in isolation and 'treating the SNPs,' we are treating the 'person.'  We will take a functional medicine and holistic approach; beginning by building a strong foundation.

         Now, that's 'bio-individualized' nutrigenomics!
