Inflammation plays a role in numerous diseases and health problems, including asthma, arthritis, autoimmune, diabetes, eczema, irritable bowel, mental health, sclerosis, obesity, and more. Chronic inflammation and oxidative stress can lead to premature aging and many chronic diseases, including cancer. Genetic testing for inflammation can be a valuable tool in both prevention and treatment of inflammatory issues through an understanding of a person’s genetic predisposition and nutrient utilization. Only by understanding a problem can a solution be found.

Your immune system is your body’s last line of defense against viruses and disease. Boosting your immune system through supplements and vitamins can be an effective way to maintain your health throughout the year and in cold and flu season. But how do you know which supplements are right for your unique needs? The answer: Genetic testing for inflammation.

Inflammation is a proper response from the immune system. When something is present within the body that shouldn’t be, the immune system releases Interleukins (chemical messengers), which call on other immune cells to aid in removing the foreign substance. Inflammation becomes an issue when the regulatory mechanisms no longer properly regulate the release of Interleukins or Macrophages, the type of white blood cell that usually digests foreign substances.

While vitamin D deficiency does not leave a patient with obvious symptoms, it has been linked to significant immune weakness and increased risk of cancer. It has also been linked to bone loss and an increased risk of cognitive decline and mood disorders. With so much on the line and no obvious symptoms to identify. Vitamin D testing can inform whether or not your cells are receiving the proper instructions from your genes at the proper time.
