Your Genetics Load the Gun, but Your Lifestyle Pulls the Trigger

By Beau Hooker, ND August 14, 2017

Genetics is defined as the study of heredity and the variation of inherited characteristics. In every one of our cells, there are 46 strands of DNA that are tightly coiled into a chromosome. Within each chromosome, it is estimated that we have between 20,000 and 25,000 genes. For the most part, genes are the same in all humans, but a small number of genes are slightly different for each individual. These small differences are what make you who you are and unique from everyone else.

Know Your Vitamin D Number test

By Dr. Jerry Mixon January 14, 2016

Vitamin D-3 5000 IU - 120 Softgels - Web

You know your height and weight. You probably have a rough idea about your cholesterol number and what it should be. You might know your blood pressure. But there’s another number that most people don’t know, but should.

That number is your 25 hydroxy vitamin D level. Modern Americans avoid sun exposure in an effort to avoid wrinkles and skin cancer. But skipping the sunshine means that they don’t make enough vitamin D. Many studies have now established that the lower your vitamin D, the higher your risk of cancer, autoimmune disease, and premature death.

I recommend that everyone get their vitamin D checked

Estrogen & Prostate Cancer

By Dr. Jerry Mixon August 13, 2015

Any discussion about Estrogen is usually limited to women. But estrogen, that most “female” of hormone types, plays a role in the hormonal balance of healthy men as well. This is especially true in the link between estrogen, testosterone and prostate cancer.
