Food as Medicine

The latest update to my website www.healthydays.info is the incorporation of DNA testing to determine which foods a person should eat to optimize their health. With DNA analysis it is becoming less of a game and more of a scientific endeavor to treat medical problems with foods as medicines.

For example- People with ADHD ( attention defecit hyperactivity disorder) may have too much production or a lack of breaking down of serotonin, epinephrine. This can be evaluated through DNA analysis.

Bipolar indiduals often have problems with the neurotransmitter dopamine. They might want to stay away from foods that are rich in dopamine, Learning what enzyme problems they have thru DNA testing might help provide a diet that might lead to less mood swings.

Women with recurring miscarriages may have very low activity of MTHFR enzyme and other folic acid enzymes. DNA gene analysis of saliva or blood can pinpoint the enzyme issues and lead to appropriate treatment for successful births without neural tube defects or spinal column issues.
