What is new for 2020: DNA, Nitric Oxide, NADH & Hydrogen Water is the lecture Dr. Gary was going to present at the store in March. Due to the Corona virus, the lecture was cancelled.
Here is the recording of the presentation. Dr. Gary discusses the benefits of DNA analysis, and looking at the whole picture, not just one or two snps. He explains the different types of DNA testing, and the benefits of Functional Nutritional DNA testing and analysis.
Also discussed are some exciting new products that can be very helpful to many people from inflammation, aches and pains, lack of energy, foggy mind, cold hands and feet and erectile dysfunction.
Since the lecture was cancelled, and the question and answer time was not available, please feel free to contact Dr. Gary with any questions.
Here are some common sense tips for dealing with the Corona Virus, flu and common cold. The same precautions and supplements can be used for all of these viruses. Everyone should be practicing these easy steps every day to help prevent spread of colds, flu, and the Corona virus.
Wash you hands properly!
Most of us wash our hands often during cold and flu season, but many do not wash properly. The CDC states that proper washing of your hands is more effective than hand sanitizers.
You should wash your hands often, properly, and especially before touching your face, nose, eyes, food or food preparation surfaces.
Take a minute and watch the video below for a simple 1 minute way to properly wash your hands.
Think before you touch!
Some of the most common contaminated surfaces are:
escalator hand rails
bathroom door handles
airplanes-seat belts, tray tables, tv screens
other peoples hands
Things to do on a daily basis
Eat healthy food, limit prepared foods, fast food
Get a good night’s sleep
Do not have the TV or radio on all day long listening to the same news cycle over and over
Enjoy each day, this stressful time will pass
Some statistics to think about
We take for granted that people die each year from flu, car accidents, overdoses. Look at the numbers, and then put into perspective where you live, how you live and what is your exposure to the Corona Virus. Statistically, you probably have a lower chance of being exposed to and catching the Corona virus than any of the following causes of death.
While the impact of flu varies, it places a substantial burden on the health of people in the United States each year. CDC estimates that influenza has resulted in between 9 million – 45 million illnesses, between 140,000 – 810,000 hospitalizations and between 12,000 – 61,000deathsannually since 2010. https://www.cdc.gov/
Traffic Deaths in US exceed 40,000 for Third Straight Year . Bloomberg.com
70,237 drug overdose deaths occurred in the United States in 2017. The age-adjusted rate of overdose deaths increased significantly by 9.6% from 2016 (19.8 per 100,000) to 2017 (21.7 per 100,000). Opioids—mainly synthetic opioids (other than methadone)—are currently the main driver of drug overdose deaths. www.cdc.gov

washing you hands is not always possible, so keep some hand sanitizer with you at all times and use it often
Founder Joni Siegel believes nature gives us all the tools we need to heal what ails us and to live healthy and prosperous lives. Equally important, she believes science must be explored in order to fully understand these natural remedies and how best to utilize them. In our family, we’ve seen hundreds and hundreds of examples of how this amazing salve has healed all sorts of things from third degree burns, to diabetic foot sores, bed sores, gangrene, surgical infections and much more. But it’s not enough to simply ‘believe’ our salve is effective. It is our job to prove it.
We believe it is our mission to make our salve available to everyone on the planet using the purest ingredients available with the gentlest environmental footprint possible, and to help reduce the global mis-use of antibiotics.

I just returned from the first annual Environmental Toxins and Genomics Conference in Denver, CO.
Speakers included Neal Nathan MD, Joseph Merolca, DO, Stephanie Seneff, PhD, Jill Carnahan, MD, Lari Young, MD, Sandeep Gupta, MD, Robert Miller, Emily Givler and Mackay Rippey.
EMF and NADPH-Dangers of EMF and how it can
affect our metabolic processes
Phase 1 Detox and the CYP Enzymes and how
genetic weaknesses can have a profound effect on health
Autophagy and M-tor
Glyphosate and how it impacts the critical Phase
II pathway of sulfation
Glucuronidation and the importance of this detox
pathway, the genetic involvement and support for these issues.
The conference focused on how Functional Genomic Analysis(DNA analysis) can help identify how our genetic makeup can make us more susceptible to toxins in the environment and how we can support our body to deal with these exposures.
Support of metabolic pathways, taking each of our unique
genetic makeup into consideration was discussed in-depth.
Analyzing DNA helped explain why many people have multiple chemical sensitivities and why some therapies work for some but others feel worse.
We are in control of our epigenetics (diet, lifestyle, stress, toxic exposures, diet, exercise etc.) and these have a profound effect on our health and healing.
Using a full analysis of our DNA along with lab testing can help us understand why some people have severe health issues due to toxins in the environment and their lifestyles and why the body may be having issues processing these chemicals due to our unique genetic makeup. This was extensively discussed and thoughts on how to help people with compromised detoxification due to their exposure and genetic makeup was also discussed.
Please feel free to contact me if you would like more information on how to explore you DNA and epigenetics and how this can help you understand your health.
Please take about 2 minutes and watch this excellent video.
NADH-nicotinamide adeneine dinucleotide is the biologically active form of niacin (B3). It acts as a biological spark, igniting cellular energy. Therefore, a persons NADH level is vital to good health.
The “H” in NADH stands for high-energy hydrogen and indicates that this substance is in the most biologically active form.
NADH supports the recycling of glutathione, a powerful antioxidant and vital for detoxification. After glutathione neutralizes a free radical, it needs to be recharged, recycled. NADH plays a important role in this process and explains why NADH is a vital nutrient.
If glutathione levels are low due to variants in your DNA (SNPS) and/or your body has produces excess peroxynitrite (which needs glutathione to neutralize it), NADH may be very helpful.
NADH is called Co-enzyme 1
A co-enzyme is a substance that enhances or is necessary for the action of all enzymes in the body. NADH is often referred to as Co-enzyme 1. It is the body’s top-ranked co enzyme, a facilitator of many biological reactions. NADH is necessary for cellular development and energy production. It is essential to producing energy from food and is the principal carrier of electrons in the energy producing process in the cells.
NADH, BH4 and neurotransmitters
When we look a bit deeper into our metabolic pathways and how our genetics may affect these pathways, we see the NADH is important to the conversion of BH2 to BH4. BH4 is needed for the production of neurotransmitters and to support the conversion of arginine into nitric oxide.
Low BH4 will cause more peroxynitrite to be produced while less serotonin and dopamine will be produced making BH4 critical for well being. .
NADH-an important antioxidant
NADH is also an important antioxidant; in fact, scientists acknowledge that NADH is the most powerful antioxidant to protect cells from damage by harmful substances.
This supplement may help reduce fatigue by increasing the amount of energy available in the body due to it’s action as a co-factor, assisting many metabolic processes work more efficiently.
NADH deficiencies can result in an energy deficit at the cellular level, which causes symptoms of fatigue. When the body is deficient in NADH, it is like a car that has run out of gasoline.
Unfortunately, the production and recycling of NADH in our bodies declines as we age. The production of NADH-dependent enzymes, particularly those enzymes involved in energy production also decreases with age.
