Five years ago, something life-altering happened to me. I experienced genomic medicine personally and my life and practice changed forever.
What is Genomic Medicine?
Genomics is the study of a person’s genetics and the interaction between genes and the environment. After doing hundreds of genetic interpretations and pouring over tons of research, I am convinced that genomic medicine is the future of medicine.
In my opinion, it is truly the key to individualized, precision health care. It essentially takes the guesswork out of what you need to make yourself whole and attain longevity. As you are well aware, there isn’t a shortage of health fads out there. Research is confusing due to conflicting results from studies and quite frankly what worked for your neighbour may not necessarily work for you even though you might have similar health issues.
For years, I ate fermented foods as a way to naturally feed my gut microbiome. Another health fad that seemed to make good sense. Instead of popping another pill; why not nourish your good bacteria with prebiotics in the form of food? Seemed like a win-win situation to me at the time.
During those years, I experienced insomnia, worsening allergic symptoms, joint pain and nighttime urination. It wasn't until I did my genomic analysis that I discovered that I had histamine intolerance. Fermented foods while great for your microbiome are also high in histamine.
Fast forward a few years later of significantly lowering my intake of high histamine foods; my allergies are much better, insomnia only occurs during periods of stress, I have energy for days and my skin is clear and smooth.
