Harnessing Your DNA for Optimal Health

If you’ve been searching for answers to build your health, testing your DNA could be the next step. Sankofa utilizes a customized and private DNA saliva test kit called Your Genomic ResourceTM and its results to interpret your DNA with a proprietary software, developed by certified traditional naturopath Bob Miller. The Your Genomic ResourceTM test is simple to do. You will agree to the terms of use, follow the instructions included in the test kit, fill the provided tube with your saliva, mail the kit to the lab, and the lab results will be uploaded directly into your file, via scanning, into the Functional Genomic AnalysisTM program. Then our Sankofa natural health consultants can help you understand your DNA test results and what they could mean to your health.

 

In a private, Sankofa Report of Findings consultation – in person or on a phone or video conference – you’ll receive a Genetic Variant Nutritional Assessment Report from the proprietary software that analyzes Your Genomic Resource raw data*, plus recommendations for a custom nutritional protocol based on your unique genetics. This protocol will supplement your missing nutrients and antioxidants, or use nutrients to aid in the production of needed enzymes to ultimately reduce damaging oxidants and support healthy cells. We also may make other suggestions that could include lifestyle or dietary changes and/or detoxification therapies.

 

We will also give you several support and follow up options to monitor your progress and make changes as needed. It is often necessary to go through different phases of nutritional support until we get to a maintenance protocol. The goal is to resolve immediate issues and then start a maintenance program that supports your nutritional health needs.

YOUR GENOMIC RESOURCE DNA Saliva Test Kit is now being
recommended due to CHANGES TO 23andMe RAW DATA FILES

NOTE: At this time, we are not recommending ordering the 23andMe genetic test to use with our Functional Genomic AnalysisTM software program.

23andMe began to change their genotyping chip from V4 to V5 in July/August of 2017. The V5 chip eliminates 7,000 of the 9,000 SNP’s that were previously genotyped and used in our reports. They are now looking at a greater number of genes, but their information currently is not completely compatible with our software program or all third party interpretation services of which we are aware.

We are now recommending a private DNA Saliva Test Kit YOUR GENOMIC RESOURCE and no longer recommend purchasing a 23andMe test kit. This customized DNA testing kit  will provide significantly more data than what is currently available on the 23andMe chip, including over 17,000 SNP's.

If you have already purchased the 23andMe kit, we can still use the data that it provides. Our Functional Genomic Analysis software that can be used for those who have the new version of 23andMe, but please understand that the information provided will be limited. However, if you had a 23andMe test done prior to August of 2017 – a version 4, may be uploaded into our software program.

Genetics 101

Thanks to new technology advances, a simple saliva test today can measure 602,000 pieces of your DNA. This is an important development! Everyone has some level of genetic variation in their DNA…it’s not just a rare occurrence. Since variants can impact your ability to make and use different nutrients, everyone is susceptible in their own unique way.

Gaps in your DNA can impact:
 

  • Digestion - see sample report

  • Detoxification

  • Gluten tolerance

  • Lactose tolerance

  • Blood sugar regulation

  • Mitochondrial function

  • Free radical production/ premature aging

  • Master antioxidant production

  • And more!
