Genetic Testing Results

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 at least 9 things I can do about it.  One, is to take a supplement grown, produced and tested by the Nutrilite corporation.  This plant-based tablet decreases inflammation by turning off the IL1 gene.    For more information go to  The other 8 things I can do are found in a new book entitled The Optimal Health Revolution by Duke Johnson, MD.  More on the eight pillars of Optimal Health later, dinner is ready.
