Amy Yasko Ph.D., NHD, AMD, HHP, FAAIM is widely recognized for her pioneering work with RNA and clinical experience to her ground-breaking approach to autism and other forms of chronic neurological inflammation.
Dr. Yasko’s integrative healthcare practice specializes in chronic inflammation, immunological and neurological disorders. To date she has had considerable success in halting and in many cases reversing the effects of debilitating diseases, including ALS, MS, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE), Myasthenia gravis and autism. All of these conditions are addressed as different forms of chronic neurological inflammation.
Understanding your genes and Nutrigenomics help to determine the specific nutrients needed to prompt healthy gene expression in certain key genes, so that people can thrive.
Why is the Methylation Cycle Important?
The Methylation Cycle is a biochemical pathway that manages or contributes to a wide range of crucial bodily functions, including:
- Immune function
- Maintaining DNA
- Energy production
- Mood balancing
- Controlling inflammation
All these processes help the body respond to environmental stressors, to detoxify, and to adapt and rebuild. That’s why lowered methylation function may contribute to many, major chronic conditions, including:
- Cardiovascular Disease
- Adult neurological conditions
- Autism and other spectrum disorders
- Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
- Alzheimer’s disease
- Miscarriages, fertility, and problems in pregnancy
- Allergies, immune system, and digestive problems
- Mood and psychiatric disorders
Methylation is involved in almost every bodily biochemical reaction, and occurs billions of times every second in our cells. That’s why figuring out where the Cycle can better perform its tasks contributes to health improvement, and reduce symptoms.
Dr. Yasko is the author of Autism: Pathways to Recovery, The Puzzle of Autism (with Dr. Garry Gordon), Genetic Bypass, and the Power of RNA (with Dr. Garry Gordon). She has presented at Autism One and many other conferences on autism.
