Podcast #153 Are Genetic Tests That Valuable? MTHFR Defects and More...Today we discuss the value in genetic testing. So many of my clients have genetic tests that show things such as MTHFR genetic defects and other potentially concerning markers on these tests that cause a lot of fear and uncertainty in their ability to live with health and vitality. Learn the truth about these genetic tests and what your true potential for health and longevity really is. If you are someone who has been told or convinced that your life will never be the same because of the results of your genetic testing, you can relax and take a breath. I've seen dozens of clients with some of the "worst defects" that are possible on these tests, but after using the right type of functional lab testing and targeted nutrition and supplement protocols, we have been able to completely restore health and alleviate even the peskiest of symptoms ranging from fatigue to depression and irritable bowel syndrome.
