SelfDecode SNP analysis and health recommendations

It’s officially been 5 years since we launched SelfDecode and we’re celebrating BIG this year in honor of all the lives that have been changed.

Over the next few days, I want to take you on a journey through the lives of some of our very own SelfDecode members who have made the commitment to better health.

We love our customers SO MUCH and are always so happy to hear about how people like you have made the decision to invest in their health and come out on top!

So, in honor of our five year anniversary, we are sharing their stories.

A Husband & Wife Who Didn’t Give Up

Brenden and his wife came to SelfDecode after a long time of struggling with health issues. For years Brenden had been dealing with the inability to phase I and II detox properly which had caused him to be out of work for nearly 2 years.

His wife struggled with neurotransmitters production and elimination which caused major mood swings from depression to extreme anger. Plus, she’d been battling insulin resistance with the accompanying weight gain and inflammation. To top it all off, she was also working through autoimmune disorders.

Both of them were poor methylators too.

SelfDecode was somewhat of a last ditch effort to find some kind of normalcy out of life when the traditional medical route wasn’t able to solve their issues.

All I can say is THANK GOODNESS they found SelfDecode! After uploading their DNA files, they started targeting specific genes and trying out the personalized recommendations from their reports.

Brendan’s wife started with her Mood and Inflammation reports, and after implementing the recommendations like supplementing with 5-HTP, reducing her consumption of certain meats, supplementing with bioavailable curcumin and increasing her butyrate consumption, she was “able to stay even keel with her mood and emotions, her inflammation went down, she has been able to completely go off of her thyroid medication, she is losing weight at a rapid pace and she is able to be up and about where she was bed ridden most of the time before.”

Plus, Brenden is back at work! He didn’t think he’d ever be able to ever hold a full time job again but now that he’s following his SelfDecode recommendations, he’s been able to work through his detoxing issues and get back to work. The SelfDecode MTHFR DNA report was a real game changer.

MTHFR is one of the most studied genes, and the negative variant is notorious for causing undermethylation and detox problems. By reading his report and learning that he carries the negative variant, Brenden was able to implement his own personalized recommendations to solve his issues. Even today, Brenden said that he and his wife are still finding new things that improve their health as a result of having SelfDecode as a resource.

Discover The Life You’re Meant To Live

Brenden and his wife knew that they were meant for more than sick days, mood swings and miserable days spent lying in a bed.

That’s why they never gave up hope and we couldn’t be happier to know that they found the answers they were looking for with SelfDecode.

Here’s the good news. You can find answers too.

You can find an abundant life full of healing, success and freedom from the health issues holding you back.

You just have to make the decision to prioritize yourself first. We created SelfDecode 5 years ago so that people like you would have the opportunity to take control of your own health and discover the life you’re meant to live.

We’re celebrating for an entire week, so keep your eyes on our site for more great things to come!

We can’t wait to hear your story next!

It takes people like you, sharing your stories, to inspire others to take control of their health and live life to the fullest.
