Each of us has not only environmental and life-stress to overcome, but our own genetic discrepancies as well. Knowing what these are and how to support them effectively is a critical piece to the overall health puzzle.
One of the most important functions in the body is to repair damaged DNA. It is estimated that each cell in the body suffers between 25,000-100,000 oxidative hits (free-radical damage) per day. This means that a great amount of repair work must take place. If the repair work is slowed or is ineffective, disease or dysfunction will result. No surprise, what helps with the repair and prevention of damage are nutrients and enzymes. About 50 human genetic diseases are due to defective enzymes. This can be remedied or ameliorated by the administration of high doses of the corresponding vitamin coenzyme. So how do we find the exact nutrient we need?
Each DNA strand is a ladder with 3 billion steps. The steps are each made up of four base-pair nucleotides: Adenine, Thymine, Cytosine and Guanine. In the DNA sequence, these nucleotides must match up exactly with their corresponding partner. If free-radical damage occurs to one of the partners, that piece must be replaced. If the proper nutrient co-factors are not present, the piece may not be replaced or perhaps worse yet, may be replaced by the wrong nucleotide. When the latter occurs, it is called a single nucleotide polymorphism or SNIP. These are what we can find in the office and depending upon which piece has been replaced, we can determine what the primary nutrient need is and even what caused the problem in the first place.
With PAK, testing can be done with each of the individual nucleotides and one additional nucleotide related to RNA called uracil. Each of these is tested to see if the patient weakens. If there is a SNIP only one will cause weakness. The antidote to the one causing weakness is one of the remaining four nucleotides. Thus there are 20 possible combinations. For example, if Thymine (T) creates a weakness and is canceled by Uracil (U) then we can look at the sample chart below and see what that particular SNIP refers to.
You can see from the chart that not only is the nutrient given but the beneficial fruit or seed where the nutrient is available in high quantities and the infective organism that is most likely related to this condition in the first place.
Note: This does not necessarily mean that you have that organism at present. Genetic disruptions are passed down for up to seven generations. Therefore, someone in your family tree may have had this infection many years ago. The organism is what disrupted the genetics in the first place and now it is free-radical damage that manifests the inherent problems.
This test takes only a minute or so but can reveal a great deal. The nutrient found as a remedy for the particular SNIP is one that should be taken in very high amounts to protect the DNA from this sort of damage and should be done so indefinitely. It should be remembered that this is a primary genetic issue and it therefore makes sense that special attention and special nutrient dosages are required to keep poor genetic expression suppressed.
