Most of what I’d heard about genes up to about 4 months ago is that pharmacology had begun exploiting DNA to create Frankenstein like monster foods containing insecticides and other nefarious modifications that have already proven to not be good for any animals that consumed them.
The other big genetics horror story that’s stuck in so many minds is the introduction of synthetic gene snips injected into humans and possibly other animals for the purposes of modifying what kinds of proteins the cells put out in an attempt to create artificial triggers with the immune system to preprime if for supposed threats going around.
What I’m about to begin to share with you involves no gene or DNA manipulation and is essentially based on Natural Laws or Nature instead of some manipulative agenda.
Think of how the foods you eat, ultimately must be broken down and reconfigured into organic chains of molecules that are essentially sentences of information or ingredients needed for the DNA or part of the DNA to build whatever your body needs.
The genetics I’m about to go into with you here is all about foods. Specifically identifying foods and plant extracts that might be missing or not being absorbed on consumption for various genetic anomaly reasons.
What I’m going to draw out here is the very cutting edge of functional genomics whereby one can order, receive and submit a mouth swab of your own DNA to a company called Uforia Science where your personal information as in name, address, phone and any other identifiers are removed and and the sample is sent to a HIPPA compliant lab.
Meaning they are held to the same standards of privacy as all medical labs) with their only client identifier being a computer generated random numerical code as to who the analysis will be relevant to upon return to Uforia Science.
The lab would do a complete analysis of the DNA supplied, looking for what in genetics circles is referred to as “Actionable Variants or SNP’s” (SNP’s is short for Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms) which may indicate something unusual in the way that bit of genetic coding connects to or needs to communicate or deliver its “Information Payload” to whatever parts of a cell, cells, organs or systems.
This sounds tiny and inconsequential, however when you consider every cell in your body has millions of complete copies of all of your genes the effect of just one variant or SNP multiplied is self evident in family trees and as we roll off the years of our lives and if fortunate, choose to take a look at inherited health and degenerate to debilitating health anomalies that show up in ones gene pool.
I thought that being plant based for many decades and being persistent in my pursuit of high levels of fitness gave me a leg up so to speak on the patterns I saw manifesting in my own family tree over the years.
I was recently exposed to the opportunity to have my own DNA analyzed and a formal 35 page outline of the results sent to me.
To my surprise, the report illustrated more than a hand full of RED FlAGS that meant I had inherited traits from both parents in the same SNP area that warranted special nutritional support in the way of targeted plant extracts in precise amounts to supply the flagged variants with what they actually needed to establish or build connectivity or bridges to the cells, organs and systems starved of the information payload they were born or created to deliver as an essential role in the optimization of my overall health.
The optimization of my overall health has been an intentionally targeted essential value and activity for me since I was about 6-7 yrs old and lost my grandfather to a heart attack. I was very close with him and being so little, my parents decided it would not be good for me to even go to his funeral and I was left at my grandmothers house with others deemed too young to process death.
Fortunately I never gave up on being extremely curious and got an aunt to explain to me what death from a heart attack meant. Once she explained that a pipe or valve in his heart had gotten plugged up from fatty plaque because he both smoked cigars and ate stuff not good for him (greasy fried foods combined with complex carbs with more grease added to them with deserts of sugar and more greases – butter – lard- oils. All I knew is I hurt so bad inside that I vowed I would never do such a thing to myself and I’d take better care of myself.
From then on I pretty much ran or rode something human powered wherever I wanted or needed to go around the town I grew up in. At that stage I sought wild fruits, nuts and greens to munch on and any trees, bushes, vines or gardens I could get access to with offers of caretaking them.
Having no real understanding of what nutrients or amounts of nutrients my body needed to grow and regenerate itself I still ate whatever I felt I had to at home to get enough of what was offered in me to not become an absolute skeleton. To illustrate how that went, I didn’t break 100lbs in body weight until I was half way through high school!
It was before high school, at age 13 that I came down with appendicitis; death impending pain in the lower right abdominal area, throwing up violently, passing out upon attempting to walk to my mom’s room seeking help.
After the surgeon removed my appendix and I came out from under anesthesia, he informed me that he had found a piece of decaying cooked meat from my appendix upon removal that still had a slight odor of BBQ sauce! He asked how long ago had I eaten such a thing? I told him it would have been the 4th of July! Which was almost 3 weeks prior to getting taken out by the purification and the resulting inflammation and run amuck infection. He told me his specialty was lung surgery however there was no other surgeons available when I came in so he took care of what needed to be done. He also informed me that we humans are not ideally suited to optimally digest and remove animal flesh before it becomes a strong liability in our guts. That’s all I got from him. I laid there pondering what all that meant for a few days.
After release and eventually getting the stitches out and being told no real activity for at least 3 months, I got on my 1 speed banana seat bike and rode the 2 miles each way to the city library to begin my research on human anatomy and nutrition.
My research led me to realize that humans really aren’t anatomically set up the way true carnivores are for processing other animals body parts for food. Some key points: All true carnivores produce much stronger doses of hydrochloric acid to both neutralize e-coli and salmonella and to properly digest raw skin, hair, teeth, bones, muscle, connective tissues along with whatever the killed animal had as contents of its stomach (As a plant sourced buffer for the highly acidic meal ingested to prevent the carnivore from having to use its own bone and teeth calcium to buffer the acidification of its own bloodstream! I learned later on that all true carnivores have night vision and not color vision, and snouts with ripping teeth to be able to insert their mouthes inside a downed animal and rip out of its nutrient rich guts while being able to scan all around for other predators that might ambush them from behind or the sides. Whereas humans have relatively flat faces and would be totally exposed from all direction never mind we would not willingly put our faces into the bowels of a downed animal to gorge on its leaking bowels little less take down such a hypothetical animal without the use of technologies beyond what we are born with. One other mention: True Carnivores have very short digestive tracts to rapidly exit the animal bits they chomp down to prevent the purification that almost killed me. Even large carnivores like 800 lb bears or 500+ lb lions have about 8 ft of intestines while adult humans have 25-30 ft of intestines!
I could find nothing on what foods we were designed for ideally. All I knew was that my aunt told me that fruits, veggies, greens, nuts and seeds are “Health Foods”.
Thus I began to really pull back on my consumption of all forms of animal parts, fluids and secretions and little did I realize that calories in relation to carb to fat to protein ratios were really important.
I struggled with trying to live on a vegan diet calorically until I figured out that rice, potatoes, pasta and bread could supply more carbs and a bit more protein. Trying to eat fruits, veggies, starches and proteins in the same meal created another chain of problems that took a few years for me to find enough information to sort that all out. (Humans are the only species that believes its ok to eat multiple food choices in one meal. The body can only optimally digest one type of food at a time. We are also the only species that believes we must apply fire or heat or give a fever to what we consider to be food for it to be safe to eat and or digestible! Add in the belief that its natural and appropriate to add plants or plant extracts and minerals to said cookery to camouflage the repulsive or bland taste of said chosen cooked items to convince the tongue it should even allow the offensive selection past to the throat for swallowing.
All these clues or design variances helped me understand that humans seem to suffer from some kind of Indigenous or Species Specific Food Choice Amnesia.
Many years later as I studied anthropology or species design further I came to realize that humans are systemically more like gorillas, bonobo chimpanzees, and orangutans than lions, tigers, or even bears. Further research revealed that our primate cousins thrive on roughly an 80-10-10 ratio of calories from plant sources of carbohydrates – mainly fruits, proteins: some nuts and seeds, and fats: nuts – seeds and if enough fruits were available all of these nutrient categories could come all from fruits alone.
So I transitioned from mostly cooked plant based to fully raw for a year or so and saw every system in my body improve further towards my genetic potential but availability of organic, peak ripeness produce proved to be difficulty every where I’ve lived in the USA. Southern California has definitely proven to be the least like a Living Food desert compared to the rest of the US but I still find it today as spotty to awkward in quality produce. Thus I scaled back to eating raw until late afternoon then having rice, potatoes, gluten free, cheese free pizza or something like that. Warm oatmeal or hot fresh rice with either cane sugar or molasses on cold mornings happens sometimes too.
Now, I had to cover the above aspect of my diet to illustrate that along with my now over 860,000 human powered endurance and speed training – racing cycling – running lifetime, I’ve learned a ton about optimization of the human engine in the realms of fueling, fitness, recovery or regeneration.
There is much more I could add in here in the way of almost life ending events I could add in here that I’ve had to both be grateful for the level of fitness and fueling I had banked into cellular memory before they happened that contributed to my even still being here to share all this with you but I don’t want this one post to become my entire life story. We’ll post on those other events or experiences another time.
In relation to DNA and any liabilities we can inherit from our parents, as mentioned my analysis results breakout report clearly identified lots of red flags and tons of yellow or cautionary flags that if not supported with specific plant extracts could and in some areas had already begun to manifest symptoms that I had never made public to anyone before that I was frankly stumped and frustrated in trying to get on top of.
Understand that I am not a doctor nor have any kind of PhD or anything like that. I’m sharing my own personal experiences and research. I personally do not believe in drugs for anything outside of surgical situations or other immediate life threatening events requiring an ER visit.
I do see that the human body has the innate ability to heal and balance itself if given the right combinations of organically created foods and even food extracts as long as the body still recognizes them as organically readable as organically sequenced chains of potential nutrients the body is in search of or needing for it metabolic processes including its constant regeneration, glucose or raw energy production and delivery, detoxification system responsiveness, etc.
Our bodies are made out of food and not drugs, not rocks, not manufactured chemicals. Only the body can heal. No food nor drug can heal. Only food – species optimized foods and food extracts can supply what the body seeks to take us towards optimal health instead of only superficially asymptomatic but actually pervasively in starvation, turning off and powering down essential systems and backing up in toxicity amongst the trillions of cells our bodies are made of.
OK, the above was all to lay the foundation for the next level of understanding one must have to begin to illuminate in any kind of practical manner how DNA variants or SNP’s are NOT liabilities or definite health crisis looming but are in fact merely mass distributed packets of essential information various cells, system and organs in your body needs the information payload from to sustain your original vitality – in genetics we think of it as our “Health-Span” which is different from our “Life-Span”.
Despite the improvements in somewhat safe food supplies, somewhat palatable water supplies and better hygiene in relation to no longer dumping human feces and urine out the window which contained rotting animal corps and high levels of uric acid in the urine we now have flush toilets and tap water instead of wells just below the surface of our homes foundations.
As we can look around and see on our glorious TV’s , medicine has made almost no real advances in the elimination of diseases. Symptom suppression resulting in sub health conditions re-expressing in ever more bizarre and profitable patterns has become the global norm now.
From a lifetime learning how to build health so I would not have to fight disease and having been around 100’s of thousands of high level athletes other than myself it’s very self evident that building health is a much better strategy than living barely above symptom outbreaks.
I get it that the giants of pharmaceutical industry have hijacked the minds of the masses, the media and the politicians.
It’s time a much older and truer approach to health be brought back to the forefront of our lives. It’s called Building Health instead of just fighting the symptoms of disease.
There are tons of companies out there that offer various ranges of DNA analysis for various prices. Uforia Science: the one I went through, is the only one that creates one off – unique to your own DNA plant extracts in capsule form that are formulated to the exact dose and recipe as written in your unique combination of DNA encoded instructions. Every other DNA analysis company I looked at either didn’t offer any kind of solution but just wanted you to know you had liabilities and left you hanging or they offered generic off the shelf supplements made loosely aimed at some generic models of what “The Public” might need or in other words, they were guessing no differently than we all have done when we go into a vitamin shop or nowadays the grocery or drug stores to shop for vitamins, minerals and even plant extracts of questionable sources, potency and testing for contamination.
Uforia Science not only has this entire process copywriter and patented but converts the DNA analysis of your sample into what they call “An anonymized Algorithm of You” so their computers can instruct a multimillion dollar machine they call the “Utritionator” to formulate your one off formulation each month for as long as you want your body to be fed at the level they can deliver.
I did my DNA test in early August of 2021 this year. Along with the DNA swab kit came a 30 day supply of plant extracts that included digestive system cultures to both detox or clean out my digestive tract and allow my body to begin healing and restoring optimal health to its entire length in preparation for the arrival of my custom supplements.
I got my report by email link to a site I could log into about 21 days after sending the DNA sample kit back and about a week or so later I transitions from the “PreTrition” cleanup and mild detox capsules to the actual “Utrition” formula and I’ve got to say, its been a game changer for me. The creeping neuropathy that I’ve fought since my teen years (more on why it began in my teen years in another post), creeping up blood pressure, aging skin, gut inflammation despite lot body fat, vision degeneration and ringing in the ears, are almost completely gone. It’s December 22nd at the time of this writing.
Understand that these products did not cure any of this. My body did! It just needed the right raw materials to do so. Nothing we can introduce from the outside of the body can cure anything. Otherwise those substances could be given to a dead body and they would reanimate it or eliminate the less than optimal condition.
Only the innate intelligence that governs the trillions of biological transactions going on from the day we are conceived or actually long before that for the human egg (all the way back to ones grandmother) and upon sperm cell maturity in the male, knows what’s required to heal and balance the body.
The above in Chinese Medicine is referred to as The Philosophy of Regeneration. There is much more to this insight to the bodies powers and potential and perhaps that will be for a future post also.
Note: The image below is a downloadable copy of my actual DNA Analysis report unedited. You’ll probably need to open it on something larger than your mobile phone as the file is 42 mb in size is far more educating than what I’ve done above. I ask that the pdf not be redistributed or printed out as its purely for your educational interest in relation to your own interest in next leveling your own health pursuits. There is nothing in this report that can be used against me by anyone and I already share with tons of you in person what’s in it in detail. A part of my mission is to take all the stigmas away from building what seems like super human health and make it public knowledge anyways.
PS: Uforia Science offers 3 other reports on top of this one specializing in Body Fat or Weight Management insights, Skin Health, and Sports and Fitness genetic insights. I have all of them and may post the rest in future post if I hear back that there is strong interest in seeing them.
After reviewing the my own Healthy Aging Report based on my body’s DNA analysis if you have questions feel free to use the “Contact Me” form top right of this site to reach back to me unless you have my mobile then you may text me with questions.
