What you’ll learn from Dr. Russell Jaffe on this episode of the Optimal Performance Podcast:

– The message is: you can control and save your life – or you can put it in the hands of someone else…
– Genetics = 8%; Epigenetics = 92% of the health that you experience; Epigentics = the lifestyle we live activates, turns on/off certain genes to
– Predictive Biomarkers = those that have meaning and provides a value around which we can guide therapy
– Test #1 = Insulin, blood sugar, carbohydrate metabolism = Hemoglobin A1C – measures extra sugar in our body
– Test #2 = (High Sensitivity) C-Reactive Protein: all-cause morbidity indicator…
– Test #3 = Homocysteine or HCy: Methylation, repair of blood vessels and cardiovascular health
Dr. Jaffe doesn’t care about your MTHFR gene – Clearing up the confusion on 23 & Me, Theranos, the industry buzzword “methylation” and the MTHFR gene
– Test #4 = Lymphocyte & Immune Tolerance – what environmental compounds can you tolerate without stressing digestion, sleep, mood, cognition, and performance …Basically an ALCAT test on steroids
– Test #5 = The pH of our first morning urination: Measuring mineral status and cellular metabolic acidosis – the batteries inside the cell for cellular energy
– Test #6 = Vitamin D (25-HydroxyD): how this “neurohormone” functions in cellular cross-talk and plays a major role in mitigating cellular mutations (Cancer)
– Rate limiting substrates – or the weak link in your chain
– Test #7 = The Omega-3:Omega-6 Ratio
– Test #8 = Oxidative Damage from environmental toxins: How 8-Oxo-Guanine measures exposure to the VOC’s, POPs (hormone disruptors), mold, radiation, chemicals, pesticides, and other landmines from the 21st century
– The Goldilocks value…not too low, not too high – JUST RIGHT! Knowing the optimal value you want for each of these 8 biomarkers AND how to get there
