Genetic testing should actually empower the individual versus scare them. Once you dedicate time to learn how to interpret StrateGene®, determine the direction that you want to go with it - use it as a map. StrateGene® isn't an answer; it's a roadmap. At Seeking Health, we don't enable you - we provide you with information that allows you to determine where you want to focus on your health, how you want to do it, and then what tools you need in order to do it. You have to put the work into it but if you know your genetic variations and that certain environmental influences really affect your genetic expression either for the worse or for the better, that's extremely empowering. - Dr. Ben Lynch

Genetic testing can be powerful when it’s used properly. Genetic testing shouldn’t be considered an easy, quick-fix, and it may not reveal anything you need to fix at all, but rather simply understand. These genetic reports which feature fast and easy solutions are ineffective and potentially dangerous.

Your body does not function that quickly and neither do your genes. If you’re ready to learn how to properly apply genetic testing into your life, then you’re ready for StrateGene®. The StrateGene® Genetic Report, StrateGene® Planners and the StrateGene® Poster are a complete set which, when used in combination with your Dirty Genes Series, will propel you towards a deeper understanding of how your body works and how to best support it.

Power Quotes From The Show

The Detrimental Effects of Over Exercising

"I always say that 'health' is a four-letter word spelled 'w-o-r-k' and you have to be able to understand what empowers your genes to work efficiently and what makes your genes work harder. Exercise is phenomenal but if you work too hard than your genes are getting too dirty and they can't handle it and they start calling on other genes to support it and then they also get overworked and overburdened and you start breaking down." - Dr. Ben Lynch

Dangers of Undiagnosed Histamine Intolerence

"Histamine testing is inherently not very useful and that is why histamine tolerance is so undiagnosed. People literally struggle for decades; on average it goes undiagnosed for a minimum of 6 years. So people are struggling with all of these histamine-associated issues like sensitivity to Wi-Fi or perfumes and excessive irritability, difficulties falling asleep, headaches, exercise-induced asthma, eczema, psoriasis, diarrhea, chronic sinus issues, bloody noses, or ringing in your ears." - Dr. Ben Lynch

Having a 'Nature First' Mindset

"Humans need to always remember 'Nature first.' Anytime that you get stuck somewhere in your health, you need to come right back to the basics. Take off your shoes and socks and walk in nature. Walk on a forest floor, not grass that has been sprayed with chemicals. Go out in nature on a trail or step into the ocean or a lake. Just immerse yourself in Mother Nature and breathe that air; hopefully in a clean environment because that's where we came from, that's where we're going to end up again, and that's where we should be each day." - Dr. Ben Lynch
