The Importance of Heart Health and Lipid Metabolism | El Paso Health Coach
Health & Wellness: The Importance of Heart Health & Lipid Metabolism

We all have specific genes that either increase or decrease our risk of developing cardiovascular disease. These genes can have SNPs, and each has the ability to influence lipid metabolism. These influences can be modulated by the gene’s metabolism. There is heavy evidence that suggests environmental factors will influence most premature cardiovascular cases if action is taken in favor of an individual’s genetic predisposition.
We use DNA Health by DNA Life to test our patients for their genetic variations and to create a personalized healthcare plan for them to better lower their risk of developing diseases.

Nutrigenetics, Nutrigenomics, & Chiropractic Care | El Paso Texas Chiropractic Health Coach

Nutrigenetics, Nutrigenomics, & Chiropractic Care

Our genetics are heavily influenced by the environment. This meaning that the way and times our genes express heavily depend on the micronutrients and toxins we surround our bodies with. Research has found that by eating a diet specific to your genes, you have the potential to alter when the genes express, reducing your overall risk of disease. We use diagnostic laboratory testing to assess your genetic makeup and create a personalized plan for you. By discovering what diseases you are more susceptible to, genetic testing allows us to create a path that will lead you to optimal health in the future.

Type 2 Diabetes: Nutrition & Environmental factors | El paso Texas Chiroptactic health coach

Type 2 Diabetes: Nutrition & Environmental Factors

One of the best ways to reduce your chances of developing type 2 diabetes, or slow down the progression/reverse a diagnosis is to start with reducing inflammation. This is done by starting in the kitchen. Evaluate diet first. We should be eating clean locally sourced organic foods to fuel our cells and alter our genetic expression in a positive way. By eating pizza and chips we are adding fuel to the inflammation fire and throwing constant reactors at our genes, altering their expression to be pro-inflammatory rather than anti-inflammatory.

Epigenetics: Stress In Relation To Chronic Disease | El Paso Health

Epigenetics: Stress In Relation To Chronic Disease

The term allostatic load refers to any type of stress occurring in the body for long periods of time. Types of stress we encounter daily from environmental stress or psychological stress have the ability to alter the way our body operates. Stress is directly linked to causing inflammation. Stressors include: Trauma/mechanical, Infection, Toxicology, Nutrient Imbalance, Neurology, and Electromagnetic. When these stressors are present and coupled with genetic polymorphisms or epigenetics we see chronic issues arise. The chronic health conditions we see from stressors and epigenetics are IBS, Fatigue, Leaky Gut, Pain, Weight, Thyroid, Inflammation, Autoimmune, Depression, and Insulin Resistance.
