Our Gene Targets
Our Genes From a Bird’s Eye View
As we have learned, our genes make us who we are. They send out important information and can be expressed differently based on our life choices. When we look at genes and how they work together, it looks surprisingly like a subway map. Each stop is a gene and the lines are the chain reactions it takes to reach their goal. For example, think of this red line as the set of genes responsible for your body’s metabolism.
As you can see it is a big more complicated than a subway map, but the same idea nonetheless.
When we look at cancer, there are over 150 key genes involved in the formation and progression of the disease. Our first step is identifying these gene targets. We then take is a step further and identify the genes before and after that target on the same “line”. For example, let’s look at the green line. The circled gene is a cancerous gene gone rogue, or an oncogene. That is one gene target. We then select genes before and after that target to optimize our attack that particular function of cancer.

How Do We Use Gene Expression and Epigenetic Information?
Once we have our gene targets, we are able to look at what can epigenetically effect these genes, and change back those switches into the correct, anti-cancer pattern. Certain chemicals (supplements, herbs, etc.) have been clinically shown to either enhance or decrease certain genes and their expression. We use this information to create our protocols, finding the most optimized combination to affect change with the goal of reversing disease right at the source.
