Take it to the Next Level
The Genotype Diet is your opportunity to deepen your understanding of personalized medicine. The Blood Type Diet gives you the basic tools for determining your biochemical individuality, the Genotypes are a more refined, complete and accurate way of understanding the human body than blood type alone. Blood type is determined by one gene--- one out of 30,000! That single marker gives us an extraordinary amount of useful information, as millions of Blood Type Dieters can attest. The GenoType Diet reflects the activity of many other genes, not just the one that determines blood type. While blood type is an important aspect of Genotyping, its not the only gene that matters. Also, unlike blood type, the Genotype Diet reflects both genetics and epigenetics. This wider base of information allows us to come up with more detailed and flexible diets that are even better geared toward your individual needs.
What Exactly Is a GenoType?
GenoTyping is the statistical analyses of how genes, disorders and physical traits are known to cluster together. Through this published research, reviewed studies on the frequencies of genes in certain populations and how they relate to our health and physiology, it was found that humans fall into six basic patterns this formed the basis for the six GenoTypes—Hunter, Gatherer, Explorer, Teacher, Warrior and Nomad.
Each GenoType has particular strengths and weaknesses and responds very differently to their environment. Meticulously researched food nutrient values have been used to develop the diets for each GenoType. These foods act as cellular medicine; by eating foods that positively affect the process of methylation and histone acetylation, you are creating environmental conditions that repair damaged cells and affect the epigenetic process.
GenoType: A Revolution in Medicine
Your DNA, passed down to you by your parents, is the blueprint that determines who you are. Your eye color, blood type and the diseases that you may be predisposed to, are all part of your genetic make-up. It was long though that your genome squarely determined your health and vulnerability to certain health conditions but, ground breaking research of the past decade has determined that this is not the case. Scientists have discovered that your environment plays an important roll in activating certain genes, particularly those related to disease. They’ve found that the lifestyle choices we make, including nutrition, and exercise can “turn on” and “turn off” certain genes through the process of methylation and histone acetylation. By eating foods that positively affect those processes, you are essentially turning up or turning down the volume on those genes.
The word Epigenetic means, “in addition to the genetic sequence” and refers to any activity that changes the quality of the genes expression without changing the fundamental structure of the gene. We know that we inherited our genes from our parents, but recently scientists have learned that we also inherited their epigenetic programming—their unique styles of silencing genes or encouraging them to speak. And you’ve not only inherited your parents programming but your grandparents and great grandparents as well! But those programming patterns are not fixed, from the moment of conception, your genes begin to respond to the conditions of your mother’s womb, thus developing your own epigenetic responses to your environment. While you may have been genetically destined to respond in a particular way, the environmental conditions that you are exposed to in utero, as well as during childhood and throughout your life, have the ability to change how your genes will respond -both positively and negatively- in developing your own epigenetic responses. Through the Genotype Diet you have the ability to consciously affect your health with food, supplements, exercise, and lifestyle choices.
Just like diets, health and wellness plans need individualized structure; one size does not fit all. Foods that are healthy for one person could be detrimental to another because of the different ways bodies process nutrients and interact with one’s unique body chemistry. Cindy Bryant takes a holistic approach to uncover the sources of dis-ease in the body through a plethora of services and resources.
Don’t worry! Not only will Cindy coach you every step of the way in identifying the root causes of your health and quality of life challenges, but she provides the resources, information, education, proven tools and techniques, supportive nutrients and supplementation, and guidance for all of the alternative health and wellness services listed here. When doing Genotyping, she’ll even include 100+ recipes per your unique Genotype, propelling you towards your BEST quality of life experience! A great way to start is at one of Cindy’s FREE lectures given every 4-6 weeks right here at the wellness center in Payson, Arizona. Let her vast knowledge and proven experience help you co-create your best self.
