- Order your kit from 23andMe and send them a saliva sample
- 23andMe will notify you when your results are ready
- Vist geneticgenie.org to see your free methylation and/or detoxification profile
First, using the methylation and detox profile features on this site require a 23andMe test. 23andMe saves close hundreds of thousands of pieces (called SNPs) of genetic data from your DNA. The test is easy, and there is no doctor needed. Just go to 23andMe.com, order a kit, spit in a tube, and they run your DNA through their lab. 23andMe has sequenced close to a million people and provides comprehensives ancestry reports and tools. 23andMe health reports are available in the UK and Canada.
Unfortunately, because of recent concerns from the FDA, 23andMe is not currently able to provide health-related related services in the United States. However, 23andMe still provides you full access to your data. This means that when you order your kit, you will be able to use Genetic Genie for methylation and detox profiles.
This website looks at your methylation genetics just by reading your 23andMe raw data. After you receive your results from 23andMe, click on the Methylation Analysis link, follow the simple instructions, and you’ll see some of your methylation-related genetic polymorphisms.
Studies have shown that DNA Methylation can be altered with vitamins such as B12, Folate, SAMe, and other methyl donors.
The detox profile looks at gene SNPs of the Cytochrome P450 detox enzymes, amongst others. Certain genetic polymorphisms have been shown to impair detoxification of drugs, hormones, environmental toxins, xenobiotics, and more.
Simply click on the Detox Profile link, follow the simple instructions provided on the website, and you’ll see a a list of relevant genetic polymorphisms.
This is a free service, but costs money to host. If you would like to see this website stay up and running, please donate! Donations are needed to pay for the domain and server. I would like to say that anything extra will go to starving children in Africa, but in reality anything extra will probably be used for healthcare costs and overpriced vitamins.
