DNA is the master molecule of life that provides a flow of information to almost every living cell.
DNA is made up of two separate strands that wind around and around one another creating a shape called a double helix.
The information in DNA is stored as a code made up of four chemical bases:
DNA is self-replicating, with genetic information passed on from cell to cell and from generation to generation.
Modern DNA testing has radically changed the way we look at healthcare.
Your genes provide instructions (or codes) that affect specific proteins; these include enzymes, transporters and receptors, substances that build, regulate and maintain health.
One of the most important pieces of the genetic puzzle is a type of variation known as a SNP (pronounced ‘snip’), which is short for single-nucleotide polymorphism.
SNPs are tiny variants in your genes that cause them to function differently.
Some SNPs (such as MTHFR, COMT, MAOA) may have profound effects on various biochemical pathways. They may change the balance, production, or lack of production of key proteins and enzymes.
These enzymes then control the rates of the chemical reactions that take place inside the cell: In fact very few chemical reactions in cells occur without the help of enzymes.
This includes metabolism of nutrients, hormones and neurotransmitters, along with how well an individual may detoxify chemicals from the environment.
Thousands of years ago Chinese philosophy developed the I Ching, that also describes life. Western scientist zoomed in and Chinese philosophy zoomed out.
DNA is also encoded fractally within the Five Elements and the Cosmological Sequence. In this sequence there is a central, vertical axis, consisting of Water, Earth and Fire.
This axis reflects the relationship between the planet Earth, Man and Heaven.
It also represents the relationship between the Three Treasures – Jing, Qi and Shen – and their relationship to the Kidneys, Spleen and Heart and their respective positions in the body.
The three treasures are an essential aspect of Chinese and Daoist spiritual and medical systems.
The Qi flowing in our bodies’ energy channels (meridians) regulates our body functions.
DNA radiates light that communicates throughout our bodies, creating an information network.
The science of epigenetics has confirmed that our DNA is directly affected by our environment, lifestyle and mental-emotional states through changes in gene expression.
This course will help you bridge the connection between the ancient wisdom of Five Element theory and the modern science of genetic testing to personalise client outcomes. This can help kinesiologists understand why one person may respond favourably to a certain treatment while others may have a very different response.
You will gain strong foundation from both classroom instruction and practical application, along with being able to confidently apply the course material immediately in your own clinic.
What you will learn:
- Clear insight into understanding DNA composition, DNA synthesis, amino acids and enzymes.
- Why your genes are not your destiny and the important role diet, environment and lifestyle plays in ‘epigenetics’ and optimal health.
- The importance of methylation, DNA synthesis and repair.
- The critical role of specific nutrient and mineral enzyme cofactors in relation to gene variations, such as zinc, magnesium, folate, B vitamins.
- Using DNA testing to enhance clinical decision making. This includes an understanding of different genetic variations that influence nutrient requirements and health, such as SNPs, insertions/deletions and copy number variations (CNVs) from common DNA tests.
- Detailed kinesiology ‘pathway planners’ for easy reference to the most common clinically relevant biochemical and energetic pathways.
- You will also receive real world examples of ‘treatment organisation’ and advanced pathways for your setup and corrections for even greater practice success.
Kinesiology Techniques & Protocols
- DNA/RNA (Finger Mode & Protocols) how to apply acupressure formatting for ‘coding’ and ‘non-coding’ DNA/RNA using the cosmological sequence and advanced clinical acupressure corrections to create a ‘flow state’ utilising Five Element theory and the Eight Extraordinary meridians.
- Enzymes (Finger Mode & Protocols) how to apply acupressure formatting for key enzymes that control the rates of chemical reactions that take place inside the cell. This includes metabolism of nutrients, hormones and neurotransmitters, along with how well an individual may detoxify chemicals from the environment.
- BioEnergetics (Finger Mode & Protocols) provides information and access to acupoints that have effects on specific structures and functions. These include cardinal points, influential points, command points, Hua Tuo Jiaji Points, Back-Shu (Association), Yuan (Source) points.
- SNP (Protocols) for common SNP’s (such as MTHFR, COMT, MAOA, FUT2) related to mood and cognition, methylation, detoxification and antioxidant enzymes, hormone balance and function, along with nutrient absorption, transport and metabolism.
- Methylation (Finger Modes & Protocols) occurs in every cell in the body, billions of times every second and plays a critical role in gene expression, DNA synthesis and repair, detoxification, hormone metabolism, immune cell function, energy production, cell membrane function, neurotransmitter production, metabolism and weight management.
- Advanced Entry Exit Blocks: Amino Acids (Finger Mode & Protocols) DNA is translated into the ‘language’ of amino acids, which are the building blocks of proteins. This language tells the cell’s protein-making machinery the precise order in which to link the amino acids to produce a specific protein. Amino acid metabolism is essential for cell division, enzymes, neurotransmitters, hormones and the endocrine and immune systems.
