Detoxification Protocols for Improved Health Outcomes
Nutrigenomics is the study of the interactions between a person’s unique genetic makeup and nutrition. Through precision genetic mutation testing a person’s individual genetic differences which can affect their nutritional health can be determined.
By overcoming the nutritional weaknesses with supplementation, lifestyle counseling, and food therapy, a person can experience a favorable environment for maximal recovery potential and overall health. Detoxification weaknesses can create challenges with weight loss, gut complications, autoimmune issues, and fatigue, just to name a few.
Thanks for reading this blog article called “Detoxification Protocols For Improved Health by Dr. Kathy Veon” Read more to learn how to optimize your detoxification pathways and experience excellent health and wellness. Enjoy!
How Genetic Mutation Testing Can Help
Detoxification enzymes are responsible for clearing environmental chemicals and metabolic by-products from our body. Accumulation of these chemicals and by-products can damage intracellular biochemical functions.
Alterations in these systems can have a negative impact on our nervous system and immune system functions causing many of the following health issues:
- Detoxification Issues
- Weight Loss Problems
- Gut Complications
- Auto-Immune Issues

Gene variants referred to as single nucleotide polymorphisms or ‘SNP’s’, can result in decreased ‘quality of life’ and even decreased ‘life span’. SNP testing allows patients and doctors to gain a better understanding of what’s happening on the genetic and cellular level.
Results of SNP genetic mutation testing can allow more focus on finding the root causes of many illnesses and offer the patient guidance in the prevention of health problems or create a protocol to help those with current health problems.
For example, a person with a heterozygous or homozygous expression of the SOD2 gene may need to increase their intake of antioxidants through diet (fruits and vegetables) or through supplementation.
Someone with a GSTM mutation may need to increase glutathione or N-Acetyl Cysteine by limiting alcohol intake or by taking glutathione therapies and methylation support in order to decrease risks of cancer or damage from toxic environmental exposures.
Lifestyle counseling, exercise, food therapy, herbal medicine, clinical nutrition, acupuncture, and other holistic therapies can help to avert the expression of genetic mutations or support healing from genetic mutations that are currently expressing as a health concern.
A few of the nutrients that can help support both neurological and whole-body detoxification are:
- Glutathione / NAC
- Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA)
- B Vitamins
- Vitamin C
- Trimethylglycine (betaine)
- Bentonite Clay (smectite form)
Nutrigenomic testing can reveal the best types of detoxification methods needed for your specific genetic typing. Call the office at 407-328-6711 to learn more about effective detox protocols for your unique health needs.
