Finding the cure for Alzheimer’s is a race against the clock – and we hope to find that cure within our lifetimes. Over the past several years, there has been promising research that indicates this elusive cure comes from preventative care. But how do we know what layers of our personal health require preventative care? Genomics may be the answer to the cure.
3 Reasons Genomics May Be the Key to Curing Alzheimer’s
Genomics is a type of genomic mapping that analyzes the genomes in your DNA to assess which of your genetic markers are potential risks for developing Alzheimer’s. Here are the 3 reasons why exploring your genetic factors may be the key to curing Alzheimer’s.
1. Nutritional Genomics
Nutrigenetics is an analysis of how each individual body processes nutrients from foods, while Nutrigenomics assesses how the food we eat influences our genes. Genetic testing can help identify the predispositions in our body to determine which nutrients we process best and which components of food are potential negative influences for our health.
2. Oxidative Stress
Oxidative stress refers to how stress and inflammation are one of the leading causes of developing age-related degenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s. Stress is a major factor that has been linked to diseases of the brain. Oxidative stress helps identify how the free radicals in your body respond to stress and can pin-point which antioxidants can nullify the gene-changing free radicals that respond most freely to stressors.
3. Exercise Genomics
Promising research has indicated that keeping the body active is just as important as keeping the brain active in preventing the development of Alzheimer’s. Genetic mapping can help evaluate which routine exercise is most compatible with your specific biology and help you create lifestyle habits for preventative health.
We’re On the Road to Curing Alzheimer’s
Science is confident that the cure to Alzheimer’s will be found in our lifetimes, and that is in large part due to genetic research. With our GENESIS Matrix and comprehensive testing, we can create a personalized roadmap to guide you toward the best preventative strategies to protect your health and potentially avoid the development of degenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s in the future.
