Why a Roadmap

Changing the way you look at your health creates an open road in front of you, poised for a healthier life. Once you recognize that you actually do have control over your own health and wellness, you can then chart that journey …

New Approaches for the
Challenges of Today’s Society

Once upon a time… life was a lot simpler. On the heels of the Second World War, the 1950’s was a time of renewed hope and innocence. When men wore grey flannel suits and women wore dresses …

Defining a New Path

Years ago the lead time for my private appointment schedule had stretched to five years. I mention this not to be all about me, because I truly believe that real healthcare is actually all about you. I mention the extent of the …

Driving the Car

I have no sense of direction in a car. I have literally gotten lost driving my children home from school on a route I have traveled daily because I was distracted. Just because I have driven on a highway from point A to point B …

Speeding Through Life:
the Gas Pedal is Stuck

One of the key starting points for this program, in parallel with the focus on the Methylation Cycle is the recognition of the role of glutamate and GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid) in chronic …

The Perfect Storm:
Multifactorial Conditions

The role of glutamate in overexciting nerves is just one piece of the puzzle in terms of the multiple factors that impact health. Sometimes, a number of seemingly unrelated events occur simultaneously, re­sulting in disaster. A prime example …

Navigating the
Traffic Circles

What I call the “Methylation Cycle” is actually the intersection of four traffic circles. Traffic circles can be difficult to navigate. If you don’t already know where you are supposed to be exiting you can find yourself in the absolute wrong lane …

Your Body’s Mechanic

The concept of “one mutation, one disease” originated in 1948, when the Nobel Prize laureate, Dr. Linus Pauling, began a new age in biomedical science with his historic work on sickle cell anemia. Pauling was the first person to characterize a disease at a molecular level illustrating that a mutation …

Inheritance and Ancestry

Just as you have one car, one set of DNA genetics that you inherit to last you an entire lifetime, you also inherit the epigenetic changes to your DNA. The extent to which your mother or father, or grandparent’s DNA were methylated …

Following the Map
Through the Short Cut

After looking at thousands of SNP results for the Methylation Cycle, there are some combinations of mutations that I have never seen. These would be combinations that completely disable the …

Keeping Track of Lithium

At this point I feel that keeping an eye on lithium levels, particularly for anyone adding any form of B12 is critical. At this time no one else is talking about the critical role of lithium with respect to B12. We all recognize the importance …

Determine Your
Ideal Form of B12

Once your lithium levels are in balance and short cut support is in place it is time to start to increase B12 support and to customize your supplement plan to optimize your health. Vitamin B12 is a water …

Working on the Long Route

In addition to the use of Vitamin B12, support for the long route around the cycle also uses folate. Those with MTHFR (methyl tetra hydrofolate) mutations cannot use plain folate directly and instead use a special form of folate …

Detours and Exit Ramps

Aside from MTHFR mutations here are a number of other SNPs that impact the flow of traffic through the traffic circles that make up the Methylation Cycle. The SHMT (serine hydroxy methyl transferase) SNP is like a detour to nowhere …

Signposts Along the Way

While your epigenetics are influenced by diet, toxins and heredity, your DNA does not change. Nutrigenomic SNP testing is something you will run only once in your lifetime. Unlike DNA based SNP testing, follow up biochemical …

About the Author

Amy A. Yasko,

Ph.D., NHD, AMD, HHP, FAAIM

Dr. Yasko has extensive expertise in biochemistry, molecular biology and biotechnology.  In addition she has significant research and clinical experience in both allopathic and alternative medicine.  The common thread that winds through these fields is her work with DNA and RNA and the desire to develop and implement safer approaches to personal health.

Recognized as an expert in the field of DNA/RNA based diagnostics and therapeutics she was a consultant to the medical and research community for over eighteen years. Her focus on RNA began more than thirty years ago when she isolated single copy RNA messages from transformed cells at Strong Memorial Hospital Cancer Center, coauthoring one of the first papers in the prestigious journal Cell on RNA levels of the c-myc cancer oncogene.  Later, while a member of the Department of Hematology at Yale Medical Center …
