    DNA/Gene Testing


    I was curious about doing DNA and/or gene testing for myself, is this possible and how widely available is this to the regular joe and does anyone know of any labs or places where this is done.

    Why do you need to know at this point?
    Simple amino acid urine test tells it all ..

    Im about to see Dr Michael Fenech for DNA testing.

    He is renowned internationally for developing the CBMN assay, which is a quick and reliable technique for
    detecting abnormalities in chromosomes and is now used by the world’s major pharmaceutical companies for
    determining the safety of pharmaceuticals, food ingredients and radiationemitting devices.

    Heavy Metals and Viral Load:We know because of various genetic tendencies and biochemical imbalances in autistic-spectrum children their ability to detoxify and eliminate heavy metals such as mercury and lead, as well as endogenous (ie., ammonia) and exogenous (environmental chemicals) toxins can significantly impair their immune, hormone, nervous and metabolic systems. In looking at immune and toxicity issues this alternation increases an autistic child’s propensity to develop chronic infections from yeast, bacteria, parasites and viruses. Some general trends have been seen with many children with respects to viral load and the presence of heavy metals and their relationship to the various genetic enzymes defects and their corresponding biochemical capacities: • Aluminum toxicity increases the propensity for bacteria in the body – particularly the gut. The inability to clear gut bacteria can be a sign of aluminum load, as gut bacteria are known to hold onto aluminum. • An increased viral load can tie up available metallothionein. Metallothionein is our reservoir for sequestering heavy metals such as mercury, lead and cadmium. The majority of metallothionein in found in the digestive system. If there has been damage to the intestinal tract from long-standing food sensitivities and inflammation environmental heavy metal binding can be compromised. • Viruses many times create an inability to detoxify heavy metals adequately. • Generally, children (or adults) who are good methylators will have less viral and heavy metal toxins in their body, in contrast to poor methylators who will have more viral load and heavy metal toxins. Another way of saying this is that the child (or adult) who does not carrying increase mutations in the MTHFr, CBS, MTR, and MTRR enzyme pathways may be more capable of excreting heavy metals. COMT is one of those curious mutations were the mutation actually slows down the enzyme function potentially offering some protection against methyl group depletion (which is a favorable thing for a person on the autistic-spectrum). However, the bottom side is that the COMT enzyme complex is sluggish which compromises other functions such as neurotransmitter (brain chemical) deactivation.

    General Considerations:*Ammonia Detoxification Protocol: • Activated Charcoal – to 2 capsules at bedtime.• Magnesium Citrate – 250 to 500mg (magnesium flush) following the activated charcoal to assist with bowel movements. • Yucca (herbal remedy) – to 1 capsule per day.NOTE: Elevated Ammonia and a High (Arginine) and Low (Citrulline) from a Doctor’s Data and/or Great Plains Laboratory Urine Amino Acid Test can indicated ammonia detoxification issues. May need to watch protein intake if ammonia is a problem. The specific carbohydrate diet is one diet that is very beneficial for many autistic children because of its effects on inflammatory bowel conditions. However, over time ammonia sensitive children can have problems. *Mood Swings: A definite potential if your child has a CBS, COMT (+/-, +/+) VDR, and or NOS mutations. • Liquid Lithium (nutritional lithium) – 500 to 1000mcg daily • May need to decrease or discontinue other methylating supplements such theanine, MSM, methyl-B12, SAMe, melatonin, curcumin. *Streptococcal Bacteria: • Neem, Goldenseal, Cranberry, Oregon Grape, Bayberry, Uva Ursi, Myrrh – are all herbal supplements which have a positive effect against chronic strep in the body. The use of these herbs is generally for 30 days – to 1 capsule or to 1 dropperful tincture taken 3x/day. *Heavy Metal Testing
