Below are laboratory saliva DNA Gene testing and the laboratories have their set fees.

 

Kinesiology Assessment Testing

This is done by John Holodnak and can take between 1.0 - 1.5 hours to do. There is about 150 genes to test.

 

John is using kinesiology testing to assess the status of your genes. There are about 150 genes that get tested. Whether each gene is fully functional, partially functional or compromised, this can be assessed.

 

If further required this can be supported by the full spectrum saliva DNA gene Testing as seen below for those that require this. This is not about taking away from the laboratories that have worked out the different genes for testing but more further aids and compliments what they have and are doing.

 

Our genes control and strongly influence the way we function and operate. At times these genes operate well. John has worked out that genes are programmed switches. Sometimes glitches or defects can develop and hinder the operation of how these genes function. Each gene or group of genes relates to certain functions within the body.

 

John will use kinesiology testing to assess the status of your genes and then see what is required to improve the quality status of particular genes that may have glitches that is affecting the well being of the body. At times there are hereditary factors involved and so John can use particular skills and tools from his kinesiology or naturopathic toolkit to balance and enhance positive change within the body.

 

      

 

Saliva Amylase (AMY1) Gene Test - $220 (Done by a laboratory)

 

      

 

This is a simple test that measures your tongue or salivary Amylase gene.

 

The Amylase (AMY1) gene assists in activating amylase enzyme on your tongue. Amylase is related to a enzyme that is in the tongue and the pancreas.

 

This test measures the ability capacity for this gene to function. The amylase gene may be fully activated, partially activated or severely compromised. This transfers onto how the amylase enzyme in your mouth will perform and function (strongly, partially, poorly or compromised).

 

The purpose of Amylase gene and enzyme is to break down carbohydrates, sugars, starches and some fibre. Depending on the amount of amylase produced from the tongue, initially as part of the initial digestive process, will determine how efficient the breakdown of carbs, sugars, starches and fibre.

 

Lowered Amylase gene functioning or poor amylase enzyme ability can indicate the predisposition to poor digestability, putting weight on, constant bloating, constant cravings, glycemic or bloodsugar control or swings, metabolic factors, neurological regulation, etc.

 

The Amylase (AMY1) Gene test will show some possible answers to what may be underlying.

 

 

 

 

Saliva Health & Wellbeing Genetic DNA Profile Test - $500 (done by a laboratory)

  

          

 

This is a test that looks at about 60 vital genes that influence your general health and well-being. 

 

Some target areas that genes have been looked at relate to affecting inflammation factors (coming from cardiovascular, fat metabolism, immune factors, liver related, etc). Inflammation can be an early warning signs of something brewing within the body. 

 

There are genes relating to cellular defence (relating to the immune system, antioxidant factors, detoxing fctors).

 

Genes relating to the Detoxification Pathways (Phase I and Phase II) and how these affect interaction with hormones, digestive function, immune, etc).

 

Today, alot of research is coming forward relating to the Methylation Factors that influence Homocysteine, folate, Vitamin B12, cardiovascular issues, sex hormones, energy, moods, lactic acid, plaque build up, etc. Genes relating to thhese mechanisms are addressed.

 

Genes relating to cardiovascular health, - blood pressure regulation, vascular issues, vascular adhesion and clotting factors, fat buildup, inflammation, nitric oxide production, weight, etc.

 

Fat metabolism, fat burning fators, fat absorption, storage and burning factors, fat transportation and cholesterol regulation, glucose regulating. These genes are tested.

 

Vitamin D and its regulation and influence on the thyriod and parathyriod glands and body metabolism are genes tested.

 

This is just some of the important genes that affect body functioning. There are more genes coming into play in the near future.
