The Tired DNA package includes 4 reports and 2 x 45 minutes analysis of your results by me, including answering any questions that you may have. This support is available online with a google meet call.
The Thyroid report
This involves the gene variant’s (SNP’s) to suggest whether your body is ticking over at an ideal rate, or not. The thyroid gland is the master of your metabolic rate - like the conductor of an orchestra. It coordinates lots of processes within the body. If you are hyperthyroid (over active thyroid) you may feel anxious, loose weight and be intolerant to heat. If you are hypothyroid (under active thyroid) you may feel tired, depressed and gain weight. SNP’s included in this report also suggest whether you are likely to react in an inflammatory way, such as would be found in auto immune conditions.
The Nervous report
This includes the gene variant’s (SNP’s) for the chemical messengers involved in the nervous response: dopamine (to do with how motivated you are); serotonin (all about your calmness and contentment); adrenalin and noradrenaline (to do with your response to acute stress e. g being face to face with a tiger); melatonin (important for your sleep) GABA ( important for being able to switch off from things and relax) and cortisol (all about chronic stress e.g the result of modern life - blood sugar control too). The report can tell you how sensitive your cells are to these chemicals and whether they hang around too long in your body. This may be a good or bad thing depending on other factors.
The Metabolic report
This involves the gene variant’s (SNP’s) that influence how your body uses food to provide energy.
There is a huge amount of information in this report. It can indicate how to improve your blood sugar balance and what sort of diet might support weight loss. There are gene variants that influence overeating and understanding how your appetite is regulated can be empowering. Knowing how your body produces cholesterol can help you manage your cholesterol levels. Understanding about your cell powerhouse pathways - the mitochondria - enables you to enhance your energy.
The Methylation report
Methylation is a simple biochemical process occurring in the cells of the body, millions of times a second. The body is like a well oiled machine with gears and switches. Methylation is the mechanism that keeps those switches and gears going. Optimal methylation results in a good immune response; toxins being removed from the body; energy being produced as needed; good mental health and a well functioning heart and blood circulation.
This report contains a huge amount of information. It gives information about many gene variants (SNP’s), which tell how your body produces energy - the basis of all body processes.
