I want to talk a little bit today about genetics and the buzz all about the 23 & Me genetic testing. I want to walk you through my 23 & Me results and one of the changes I have made since I received my results back. Have you taken or wanted to take the 23 & Me testing? It’s easy, you send in a sample of your saliva and they send you back information on your ancestry, health, DNA and genetic markers you have.
I decided to do this testing to find out more about my genetic markers, my health and if I have any gene mutations. Because we are exposed to so many toxins daily, this is important information to know. For an add-on you can also submit your results to DNA fit. Through your results they can tell you more about your fitness level based on your genetics. They also let you know what types of fitness your body responds too, what foods are best for you and how they interact with your body from a genetic perspective.
In my 23 & Me results one of my health predispositions that came up was increased risk to age-related macular degeneration. This does not mean I am going to get this but based on those results I don’t want to live in fear, I want to be pro-active!
When you look up macular degeneration the best way to be proactive and combat it is through antioxidants. Do you know what has the highest amount of antioxidants on the entire planet? Clove bud. Which is why this oil is in so many things that doTERRA carries. Clove bud is in our daily Lifelong Vitality Supplements and it is also in your OnGuard Blend and DDR Prime Complex Blend to name a few. I take clove on a regular basis, but I wanted to bump it up to get more protection. I take 7-10 drops of DDR Prime and 2-4 drops of Clove Oil in a 10 ml roller bottle and then I fill it up the rest of the way with Fractionated Coconut Oil. Then twice a day as part of my facial routine I apply that mix onto the bony part of my face around my eyes.
So, I encourage you to be proactive with your health and genetic results. If you need help in what products to use on your health journey contact us.
