It started in my twenties with the smell of car exhaust or perfume making me feel like I was going to die. Over decades I had to withdraw more and more from normal life and people at large. I purged everything in my body and my house that I suspected, but not a day passed that I did not feel like utter crap for at least an hour. I got my genetic profile done last year (thirty years of hell later) and now I am able to feel so good that I am even getting less and less angry about how much humans demonize everything they don't understand and deal with life from behind a spray gun. Anybody else here have an enhanced life because of a genetic profile?
I don't see how this has helped you. Did the genetic information lead you to change anything in your diet or otherwise ?

Thanks for asking. By the way I AM NOT SELLING ANYTHING, just sharing to help us reach a critical mass to heal ourselves in spite of the medical establishment.
For thirty years I blindly thrashed around with diets and lifestyle changes. In my profile, I suddenly SAW genetic problems with metabolizing folate and detoxing all kinds of normal byproducts from metabolism. Once I was able to add the supplements I needed and the foods that were migraine and terrible malaise triggers, I was having days when I actually felt better than I had even as a teenager. Those days have turned into months. I still can't eat things like cauliflower and eggs without losing a lot of healthy ground, but now I can tolerate a little bit of olive oil and an occasional avocado. I'll leave it at that here on this forum. Anybody who wants all the details can see my journal back to health page, or google these terms: mthfr, cbs, mao, comt
I think maybe we're just not understanding what a genetic profile actually *is*. And how you see problems with it.
Could you explain? Is it some kind of test? What does it involve?
Ah yes, thanks for your patient questions. I went through 23andme to get my genome profiled, which includes many thousands of the most commonly known genes related to health among other inherited traits. While some people may distrust this Google's child of a company for hoarding genetic information, for right around 100 bucks (way cheaper than one visit to the doctor) it seems thousands of people have been able to answer all kinds of Mystery Diagnosis questions from merely spitting into a vial and rendering unto Google/23andme.
The FDA reacted by banning 23andme from dispensing health prognosis reports, but users all over online have learned to get around this by going through free or cheap genome data interpretation services such as geneticgenie.org
So a whole world of people are finding practical ways of dealing with the autism spectrum, heart disease, allergies, chronic pain, immune system disorders, etc. Just googling MTHFR (methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase polymorphism) will show this to anyone interested. MTHFR has become a buzz word for all kinds of "health" web sites. But in my experience, it is not just another scam.
My own family has been a bit reluctant to dive into the learning curve, perhaps because it would mean things like giving up beer or wheat, so I made 2 videos for my tween nephews (and I have no idea if they've watched them yet)
in this second video you can see a sample of a report from geneticgenie

My friend who is Jewish, sent away for a profile. The family migrated from Poland. I asked "Did you come back Polish ?" He said,"Yes, but with some middle eastern as well."
Many African Americans have paid for profiles, after being told that it could give some insight into which tribe their ancestors were from. There are so many genes to choose from. Look for Dogon, Dinka or Denge and you may find it. Each gene is a tiny piece of a person's make up. Companies have been known to deliver the desired results. My friend's surname would have given away something of his family history, so he did it under an assumed name.
