So many times we know someone who begins a treatment and it doesn’t work, or it creates terrible side effects and the treatment ends up being worse than the condition itself. Doctors often say it is called the “practice” of medicine because they have to practice to get it right. Each person is unique and therefore each treatment and intervention will act in a unique way in their body. The more understanding we have about our own body the more we can protect it and prevent disease, the more we can pick treatments that are designed to move us forward. Our genetics are our own unique code of life waiting to be unlocked to map our path to better wellness. Our genetics dictate the color of our hair, our eyes as well as which nutrients, medications and even which foods and exercise are best for us.
