Yoga not helping your anxiety? Learn how your genes may play a HUGE role in your emotions!

Many of your sought-out yoga to help decrease stress and anxiety in your life. 

Focusing on breathing, posture, and fluidity during class helps to decrease cortisol, your stress hormone, allowing your body to feel at peace.

Unfortunately, some of you may still be looking for the magical yoga class that melts away all of life’s stressors.  Maybe you are becoming frustrated because no matter how much meditation or ujjayi breathing you perform, your anxiety is still there. 

I work with many patients who struggle with anxiety.  Some of these patients have health conditions that affect their neurotransmitters (feel good hormones) in the GI-tract and brain.  Conditions such as Lyme Disease and hypothyroidism classically cause anxiety.

Medications may not always solve the problem, as medications do not address the underlying cause: infections, inflammation, and hormone dysregulation.

In many patients with anxiety, their doctor has tried addressing the condition that may cause the symptoms, but the result is the same…anxiety persists, which eventually turns into depression.

Does this mean you should you take two yoga classes a day?  Ground yourself more?  Turn off social media?  Quit your job?

No!!!

Why Would the Symptoms Not Improve?

What if I told you that your genes may be causing your anxiety symptoms, and no matter how much you practice yoga, your symptoms may still hang around?

That is right, maybe…your anxiety was passed down to you!!!

Every new patient I work with is asked to run a genetic test to determine if any of their health symptoms are caused by faulty, broken or mutated genes.

Take a look at these two case examples.  Both of these patients contacted me because they were struggling with anxiety and depression.  These patients told me, “Dr. King, my life is great!  I love my job/school; my family life is solid.  But, I can’t control my anxiety.  It seems to come out of the blue!”

Unfortunately, these two patients had been seeing psychiatrists who put them on anti-depressants and anti-anxiety medications which began causing MORE symptoms.  Both patients ditched the medications due to the increase in symptoms and sought my help.

Patient #1

34-year old female; occupation – nutritionist; married with one child.  Chief complaint, anxiety and depression that comes out of nowhere.  She was on two different medications (Xanax and Abilify).  History of Hashimoto’s Disease which was incorrectly diagnosed as Hypothyroidism.

What are we looking at in this test result?  Let me explain…

On the left-hand column, you will see the gene (i.e. COMT V158M) and the result (i.e. +/+; red).  Next to the colored column, is a list of vitamins/minerals that help support the genetic mutations, followed by the next column that lists a specific product that combines the vitamins/minerals into one supplement.  Lifestyle recommendations are listed to the right, along with a recommendation for further testing.

Now that you know what you are looking at, let me explain genetic mutations and how they impact your emotions.

The genes that are listed help your body perform physiological functions to help you feel well.  If those genes are mutated (AKA: altered or broken), your body will have a difficult time performing its duties.

Since we are looking at the neurotransmitter (feel good hormones) genes, you can expect to get some answers to solve your anxiety problems IF the genes are mutated.

Let’s start with the first two genes: COMT V158M and COMT H62H (Catechol-O-methylatransferase)

When these genes are “normal”, not mutated, they allow people to rapidly reverse feelings of anxiety or depression.  Patients that have mutations in these genes have a sluggish ability to alter anxiety or depression episodes, and are more prone to prolonged episodes of anxiety, depression, and OCD.

The next gene that is mutated in this patient is called GAD1 (Glutamic Acid Decarboxylase).  When this gene is mutated a person has a difficult time converting glutamic acid (a stimulant neurotransmitter) to GABA (a calming neurotransmitter). 

What does that mean?  If your body is being over stimulated due to high levels of a “stimulant” and you can’t calm down because your “calming” neurotransmitter is low, you will struggle with anxiety, sleep disorders and/or the “glass half empty” syndrome.

Do you think the medications prescribed to this patient addressed these mutated genes?  No, not at all.  Hence, the patient was not feeling better.

What was her treatment?  I had her take a supplement that contained many of the vitamin/minerals that were listed in the results.  We did address her autoimmune condition, as well.  

BAM!!!  She was a happy camper after 2 weeks of being on her genetic support.

Patient #2

22-year old female; occupation – she is in college.  Her chief complains consisted of anxiety, which has led her to feel depressed, along with the inability to focus well at school and when studying.  Her doctor prescribed Ritalin to help her “cope”.

She, too, has a mutation impacting her COMT V158M gene = hard time reversing feelings of anxiety and depression.

She does have two mutations of the MAO gene (A and B).  These two genes degrade, breakdown, the neurotransmitter dopamine.  If the body can’t degrade dopamine, a person will have risk of clinical depression, mood disorders, and aggression.

You will see she does have two mutations of the GAD1 gene, similar to the first patient. 

Medications did not help this patient but addressing her genetic mutations did. 

Where Does This Leave You?

We ALL are faced with triggers that can cause neurotransmitters hormones to be released in our body.  Genetically, healthy individuals should be able to adapt to those hormones being released and still keep feeling well. 

When the genes are mutated, you may still have anxiety/depression, regardless of your rocking yoga practice, because your genes are not doing their job.

What Should You Do?

If you have tried other means to control your anxiety symptoms, but you are still struggling, think about talking to your doctor about genetic testing.  Most traditional medical doctors are not educated on genetic mutations and may not know how to handle them.

One way to find a doctor with experience in this field is to contact GX Sciences.  They are the company that runs the genetic testing we looked at.  Ask them for a list of doctors in your area with training in genetic mutations.

Don’t give up hope if you are still struggling with anxiety, or depression.  Keep searching for answers.  All you may need are a few more pieces to your health puzzle to help you achieve your goal(s).

Could Genetics be Your Answer for Healing?

 

How many times have you heard people say, “I have XYZ condition and it runs in my family”?

 

Before studying genetics, I thought that answer was an excuse the patient would give for not maintaining a healthy body.

 

The more I studied genetics, I thought, “some of these patients may be right!”

 

Whether We Want Them or Not!

 

Genes get passed down to each of us from our parents.  That is out of our control.  What is in our control is the environment that we live in, and we can only control this to a certain extent.

 

What do I mean by environment?

 

We are all exposed to environmental toxins, which we can’t control.  We breathe in toxins in our air, no matter where we live.  If you live in LA, you breathe in more compared to living out in the country in Kansas. 

 

However, we can control HOW we live in our environment!

 

We can control what eat, our stress levels, our exercise routines, our sleep habits, the people we are around…

 

We can control A LOT…BUT, with genetic mutations this “control” of ours may not be enough.

 

What Size is Your Bucket?

 

What do I mean by that?  

 

This is an analogy I use to describe why we become sick.  All of us have different size buckets that fill up with toxins throughout or life.  Our genetics will dictate the size of that bucket.  

 

For example, Natasha and I were living in a home with mold.  Natasha became extremely sick, but I did not.  WHY?  Our buckets are different sizes.  Her bucket filled up and start over-flowing = she became sick.  Natasha has more genetic mutations than I do.  I didn’t get as sick as she did because I have still have plenty of room in my bucket to collect more toxins.

 

Also, she is a slow detoxifier.  How do we know?  We looked at her genetic mutations that impact her body’s ability to detoxify.  If you can’t detoxify, your bucket is filling up, and you can get rid of those toxins on your own = bucket overflows = you become sick!

I hope you enjoy!

Candida Recipe – Blanched Greens and Amazing Sauces

 

If you have ever gone through a candida protocol, you the eating can be a bit tough. 

 

Last night, Natasha and I (I help clean) made a great dish that we wanted to share.  To me, the sauces made the dish, below are the recipes to make the sauces. 

 

The items we made were:

  1. Blanched greens with walnut lemon dressing
  2. Mixed green salad with a pumpkin seed cilantro sauce (salad not pictured)
  3. Steamed broccoli – you know how to make this 🙂 
  4. Avocado – slice ’em up
  5. Pickled onions 

 

Here is how we prepared them:

 

Blanched Greens – Collards, Spinach, and Swiss Chard

 

Remove leaves from stems. (Swiss chard stems are edible, so save and cook them) Blanch greens in a large pot of boiling salted water, 15 seconds (spinach and chard) to 2 minutes (kale and collards); drain. When cool enough to handle, squeeze out excess liquid.  Let the veggies cool completely,s in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet. Greens can be stored in an airtight container in refrigerator up to 4 days.

 

Walnut lemon dressing

1 c. lightly roasted walnuts
1-2 cloves garlic, minced
1/8 cup lemon juice
1 TSP Ume plum vinegar
Pinch of real salt (I prefer Himalayan sea salt; it provides essential minerals that benefit the body)
3/4 c. pure, filtered water
Optional for a variation: add 2 teaspoons fresh dill, chopped

 

To make:
Roast walnuts at 350 degrees until lightly browned. When cooled, add all ingredients to a blender or food processor, and blend until smooth.

 

Pepita (pumpkin seed) Cilantro Sauce

1 c. pumpkin seeds toasted

2 c. cilantro leaves

1 – 1 ½ c. water

2 Tbsp. lemon juice, freshly squeezed

½ Tsp. Ume plum vinegar (you can substitute another kind if you don’t have this)

Dash of salt

 

To Make: 

Toast seeds until golden (keep the pan moving so you don’t scorch the seeds). Add all ingredients including seeds to the blender and blend until smooth.

Happy 2018

 

How is the new year treating you?  Are you living up to all those New Year’s resolutions?  Achieved any goals, yet?  Did you set goals for this year?  I sure hope so!!!

I know, it has been some time since my last email.  The end of 2017/beginning of 2018 was quite crazy for us (almost a 1-1/2 weeks in the oncology department…UGH) and I needed to take some “me” time and re-energize my mind and body. 

Now, it is time to rock ‘n roll and focus on our goals, while helping you achieve yours!

 

Social Media Takeover!

 

My first goal started at the end of 2017, and it was to begin getting “acquainted” with social media.  Well…

I did it, I gave in, and jumped right into the deep end!  Yes, I become one of the people with a Facebook, Instagram and YouTube Channel…might as well throw Pinterest in there while you are at it.

I have completely given in to social media. Never did I think that by joining/creating communities, of like-minded people, would my excitement for improving others’ lives sky-rocket.

Now, I look forward to talking to members/friends on social media about their health problems.   Maybe, I have finally given in to technology and how we interact using it.  But sometimes, I do miss the days of no cell phones 🙂

 

Dr. King’s Thyroid Support Group

 

Some of you may know, but towards the end of last year I started a Thyroid Support Group on Facebook.  Just this week we were sharing some of our goals for 2018!  If you are not a member, you can join (free) and read what myself and others have been sharing these last couple of weeks.

I started the support group as a way to encourage patients to keep searching for answers for their health.  I feel that education brings knowledge, and knowledge brings healing.  If I can teach a patient one thing that helps to improve the quality of their life, then I have succeeded at being a healthcare professional.

I am striving to educate patients a little more regarding their thyroid condition, along with helping them with ideas on eating healthier (recipes get shared…YES!), supplementation, medication, and answering any health questions they may have.

You are more than welcome to join our community!!! CLICK HERE!!!
