Why Do Genetic Testing

Why We Do Genetic SNP Testing?

Cancer patients have distinct genes that we want to review. There are cancer suppressor genes that, if defective, we want to support; there are genes that hint at what a person's cancer may be "feeding on" thereby helping us govern one's diet.

Each person has a set of genes - about 20,000 in all. The differences between people come from slight variations in these genes. For example, a person with defects (variants) on their genetic detoxification pathways may have a greater difficulty ridding their body of pesticides, giving them an increase risk of health issues.

Our Genetic SNP variants influence a variety of traits such as appearance, disease susceptibility, response to drugs, ability to detoxify quickly or slowly, ability to heal, kill pathogens, and even increase your risk of cancer.

Knowing one's defects help us make better choices.

Many have heard of the MTHFR gene and, quite possibly, place too much emphasis on one gene. Dr. Conners teaches that the many other genes that are tested through the Genetic testing may play an equally important role in protecting one's health.
