The Apeiron Detoxification Genomics Report looks at various enzymes that convert toxic waste in the body to products that can be expelled from the body in the urine and feces, and also carry out many other important biochemical functions in the body. Questions that are answered by this report include the following:
- What drugs does my body's "Phase I cytochrome enzymes" have a propensity to eliminate quickly (so that I need higher doses than normal) and what drugs does my body eliminate slowly (so that I need lower doses than normal)?
- Do my "Phase II methylation" and MTHFR enzymes have a propensity to be fast or slow? Methylation is an important process in controlling epigeneics, detoxification, neuropsyciatric imbalances, cancer, and many other chronic diseases.
- What kind of vitamin B-12 and B-9 does my body have a propensity to need? Fast methylators should avoid methyl forms of these vitamins, whereas slow methylators may need these forms.
- Do my "Phase II acetylation" enzymes have a propensity to be fast or slow? Acetylation is another important process in controlling epigenetics, detoxification and cancer prevention.
- How well does your glutatione system work? Glutathione is the most important anti-oxidant in the body, and is important in neurotransmitter synthesis, phase II detoxification, DNA repair and cancer prevention.
- How well do my mitochondria have a propensity to work? Mitochondria are critical to energy production in the body, as well as in both detoxifiction and biosynthesis pathways in the body.
- What is my genetic propensity to be sensitive to molds and fungi?
- What is my genetic propensity to suffer from Lyme Disease?
- What is my genetic propensity to suffer from environmental toxins and multiple chemical sensitivity?
- What is my genetic propensity to suffer from histamine sensitivity to my foods?
- What is my genetic propensity to suffer from mercury and other heavy metals? Does mybody tend to efficiently eliminate these toxins?
The good news is that answers to the above questions only identify what your statistical probabilities are for problems in the various areas. It is necessary to correlate the above propensities with your actual clinical symptoms (complaints) and laboratory values. But the biggest value in knowing the answers to the above questions is that it can guide precise epigenetic interventions (treatments) that specifically target the problem areas, rather than taking "shotgun" advice like "if you have this complaint, then some people have found that this prescription/treatment/supplement/herb will help; we don't know what will help you, but lets throw some mud on the wall and see what sticks; you have the following diagnosis, so let's prescribe the drug that the FDA and your insurance company has approved for this diagnosis."
