Genetic Testing for Nutrition
Supplement your genetic expression, not your symptoms
The information that comes from having a genetic test done provides incredible insight into who we are and how we think, how we respond to the environment, how we detoxify, how we repair our bodies and our susceptibility to diseases.
With this information, we can now help our bodies overcome genetic weaknesses by giving support where the body is struggling due to genetic variants*, or changes in our genes that can decrease how well they function. This revolutionary concept using specific nutritional support to activate genetic pathways can have dramatic effects on overall health.
*Gene variant – a change in your DNA that affects how your body functions. A small change can alter function of up to 30%. A larger change can alter function of up to 80%.

How We Create Your Nutritional Protocol
Simple Saliva Test
A method of determining genetic variants is now more affordable and easier than ever with a simple saliva test (from Ancestry.com or 23andMe). We can have results generally in 4-6 weeks providing a data file with information on your complete genome. With this file (which is huge because it holds data on over 22,000 genes), we have your “raw genetic data” that we can then run through a sophisticated software analytic. That analysis then pulls out information that can help us determine your genetic mutations to aid in designing a nutritional program specifically for you!
Wholistic Methylation is a protocol enabling the evaluation of these genetic variants, that can lead to chronic illness and disease, using the DNA testing above and kinesiology to determine the priority in addressing genetic variants and the appropriate supplements required for success. This combination of diagnostic and clinical information gives Dr. Burton incredibly valuable information into why these issues happen, and how he can build a nutritional bridge around genetic variants to improve your health and wellbeing. It is common for people to reduce the number and amount of supplements taken by addressing issues at the genetic level rather than the symptoms. An initial visit determines the starting protocol with periodic visits to fine-tune the supplements and dosages required for a lifetime of health.
