Autophagy Panel

Safe Harbour Wellness offers an Autophagy panel that evaluates 7 gene variants for possible SNPs and complications. You may be feeding your body the correct nutrients, but they are useless if your body’s cells can’t absorb them properly. An Autophagy genetic test is one of the only ways to know whether your internal cellular recycling system is intact. Autophagy is necessary to maintain cellular health and assist in preventing the growth of malicious cells. The genetic testing Safe Harbour Wellness offers, can help you identify how your body works, as well as nutrients and supplements that would be specifically beneficial to you.

The report algorithms, created by our medical experts, will take the patient’s genetic results and create nutritional and lifestyle recommendations along with recommended lab work and health precautions based upon many factors and their clinical expertise. The built-in proprietary software takes out the guess work and allows the provider to recommend the proper nutrition and health advisements safely by a patient’s DNA results.

Autophagy is a natural physiological process that occurs to counteract the destruction of cells in the body. The term “Autophagy” comes from the Greek words auto, meaning self, and phagy, meaning eating. Like spring cleaning for the body, the self-eating process accumulates dead or senescent organelles and proteins, isolates them, dissolves what no longer serves the body, and recycles the remaining amino acids to be utilized elsewhere. Autophagy is particularly important for cells that cannot regenerate easily and need to have long lifespans like cells in the kidney, liver, and pancreas. It’s crucial to overall health as it greatly helps in maintaining homeostasis.
When Autophagy is disrupted, a buildup of dead, senescent, or even toxic organelles and proteins form. Cancer, autoimmune diseases, and neurological diseases like Alzheimer’s, Dementia, Parkinson’s, ALS, and Multiple Sclerosis have been tied to increased mTOR activity. mTOR (mammalian target of rapamycin) regulates cellular processes like growth, generation, survival, and Autophagy. It also perceives energy levels, so when a cell is stressed or nutrient deprived, mTOR increases Autophagy to find amino acids to fuel the body. If mTOR is overactive, Autophagy is usually bypassed to prioritize other activities, leading to an increase of buildup of byproducts. Some studies suggest that overactive mTOR activity is associated with decreased life span. Without Autophagy, cells undergo more stress, function less effectively, leading to quicker cell aging. Decreasing TOR activity can aid the upregulation of Autophagy, clearing cells of dysfunctional or dead cellular elements.
The innovative Autophagy research of the last few years enables the scientific community and health care providers to reevaluate how they treat patients and what can improve with these new findings. Some known natural Autophagy stimulators are exercise, fasting, and high fat, low carb, low protein diets. Exercise and 12 - 16 hours fasting can naturally stress cells into creating more energy through recycling existing amino acids in the cell by organically encouraging Autophagy to kickstart. High fat, low carb, low protein diets can encourage less mTOR activity, allowing for Autophagy to take place. mTOR inhibitors, a class of drugs that target mTOR, can also stimulate Autophagy. These prescribed drugs like Rapamycin (sirolimus) may help those too ill to adopt natural stimulus or that need extra help because they effectively suppress the immune system in high doses, allowing mTOR activity to slow down and encourage Autophagy to take place. It’s important to have your Autophagy activity tested before starting a prescribed mTOR inhibitors as they can suppress a healthy immune system, possibly leading to more health issues.*

SNP testing allows patients and their doctors to gain a better understanding of what’s happening on a genetic and cellular-level. Completed in 2012, The 1000 Genomes Project and its’ accompanying research, allowed the scientific community to identify the physical and functional standpoint of specific gene changes. This project and continuing research has helped scientists and doctors determine which SNPs (mutations) are harmful and which are not a concern to your health. When a patient has SNP testing, doctors can focus their attention on genetic mutations that can lead to poor health and offer the patient guidance in the prevention of health problems or create a protocol to help those with current health problems.* * These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.

Perfect marriage of Innovative DNA Testing and Proprietary Interpretation Software.

Our Nutrigenomics tests, are much more than your typical laboratory’s DNA Genomic Test. In fact, our system is the perfect marriage between forward thinking Interpretation Software and Innovative Nutrigenomics Testing. In addition to being the most comprehensive DNA Nutrigenomics test available, the real magic lies within our proprietary SNP Interpretation software.

Our innovative software, takes the guesswork out of the physician’s results interpretation, as it links any identified SNPs to the recommended nutritional support that lends the greatest potential for the most optimal patient outcome. This software provides a detail and a summary, showing highly recommended nutritional support therapeutics, the nutritional or pharmacological support best left to the provider’s discretion, lifestyle recommendations, as well as any suggested additional laboratory testing one should consider.

This saves the provider valuable time that could be better spent on patient care, rather than looking up specific SNPs and the associated supplemental support. Additionally, the concise format of our report provides an easy to understand outline to better ensure alignment between patient and provider.
