FULL SHOW NOTES:

7:30 Alex Swanson’s Personal Background

“I started looking at data files with all of these genes and began to connect the dots that I couldn’t before.”

Observing genetic pathways and linking them to how people respond to things

9:30 Introducing Nutrition Genome

Looking at genetic pathways and how people are genetically different

How Alex’s initial interest in this field stemmed from his wife experiencing a horrible reaction to pharmaceutical drugs

“Through genetic testing, I was able to pinpoint exactly what happened based on her reaction to those drugs.”

Explaining the hydration component to our adrenals

Finding the right heat therapy that will work best for your adrenals

19:30 Genes, Circadian Rhythm and Nighttime Techniques

A new research initiative to learn more about the melatonin pathway

Discovering sleep sensitivities - A brand new field

23:30 Coffee and Supplements to Regulate Stress

Explaining how caticals in caffeine can cause spike dopamine and adrenaline to spike, which has to do with your genetic pathway

Magnesium, vitamin C, vitamin B6 can help control our reactions to stress

32:00 Seasonal Affective Disorder (S.A.D.)

Understanding our migratory routes of our ancestors

“Everything in terms of our genes in an accumulation from the things that came before us.”
