We are often asked, can Epigenetics help my condition? Generally the answer is YES because Epigenetics benefits all cells in the body and all chronic diseases are ultimately caused by problems of cells.
If you have a problem with heart disease, the cells that are being damaged are the endothelial cells in the coronary artery artery.
If you have an autoimmune disease, the problem are the cells of the immune system.
Many conditions share in-common the types of issues that impact cellular health, and therefore epigenetics: autism, ADHD, depression, heart disease, cancer, inflammatory bowel disease, eczema, psoriasis, anxiety, depression, fatigue, bipolar disease, Parkinson's and even Alzheimer's.
Epigenetic Health is not a substitute for treatment of disease. Instead, it is a compliment to treatment, which focuses on using nutrition, nutraceuticals and bio-identical hormones to improve the health of your cells while you are fighting the disease.
To learn whether Epigenetic Health can benefit you, we offer free consultations, where you provide a brief health history so we can personalize the discussions to your specific issues.
Epigenetics has important value for "co-morbidities," or situations where a person has multiple clinical conditions and needs medications for each condition. For example a person with depression, inflammatory bowel disease, fatigue, sleep problems and heart disease, has co-morbidities. Such a person may need a great number of medications. With Epigenetic Health, each of these conditions are benefited because its focus is on improving the health of all the cells in your body.
In 2013, xR coined the term GEMS™, to describe how and why these many diseases have underlying root causes. in which was coined in 2013 in a press release
. With further innovation since then, we have modified the definition of GEMS™ to mean "Gene Expression, Endocrine, Methylation Syndrome" as genetics, hormones and methylation are cornerstones of Epigenetic Health.
