The Methylation Cycle & Your SNPs: A Note from Dr. Amy
The Methylation Cycle is a pathway that is directly related to a range of health conditions. This is a pathway that, in my opinion, is the key pathway to health. The Methylation Cycle is critical for survival, leading to potential health issues if this pathway cannot function or is severely compromised. The Yasko Protocol considers overall observations about The Methylation Pathway in addition to looking at specific SNPs, which can give a sense of some of the larger issues to consider in terms of the pathway as a whole.
In spite of one or more serious imbalances in the pathway, an individual’s unique combination of SNPs can be viewed as the body’s effort to have The Methylation Cycle function. When more significant/serious SNPs are present, additional SNPs may help to compensate and ensure The Methylation Cycle flows properly or that problematic compounds do not build up in the pathway. While this may seem counterintuitive, having additional SNPs actually may help to normalize the pathway when it is compromised by a more significant SNP.
I hope that you all will enjoy learning from this virtual presentation that goes hand in hand with my Feel Good About Your SNPs book. I strongly believe that knowledge is power, I find that people are often afraid of their SNPs and I would like to support the shift from fear to understanding. My goal in offering this presentation is to help put your minds at ease, giving you more tools to support your personal journey. I hope that by the end of my presentation, in addition to reading my book, you will begin to have a better understanding of the interactive picture between your SNPs and Methylation Cycle, allaying any internal concerns.
