So, the test results came back and I have the IL1 gene for increased inflammation and risk of heart disease and stroke.
My husband on the other hand who also took the test does not have the gene. So there are 8 things I can do now to help prevent chronic disease in the future. They are found in the book entitled The Optimal Health Revolution by Duke Johnson, MD. More on the eight pillars of Optimal Health later, dinner is ready.
