A health village is a group of people involved in your health and wellbeing. They can be family members, friends, teachers, mentors, neighbors and of course your healthcare practitioners. Once you identify them, consider creating a health village by getting a free livewello health acc at:
https://Livewello.com 
Then, add each of these people as your health village members. . With your permission, anyone who is your health village member can add/edit supplements, medications etc. This is helpful if for example, your Dr is a member of your health village.

Make sure you add other important information about your ... ..more

Blank or missing SNPs on your #Livewello report could be due to any of the following: 

1) The raw data was prepared by a genotype chip that did not contain those missing SNPs. For example In Novenber 2013, 23andMe changed the chip they use in processing genetic raw data. Even though the #LiveWello App still works with the old Chip(s), the number of SNPs on the current V4 Chip decreased from 9000,000 to 600,000 SNPs. This decrease in reported SNPs, affects anyone that returned their test kit as of Nov/Dec 2013. Since Livewello can only generate ... ..more

Mitochondria (illustration) are structures within cells that convert the energy from food into a form that cells can use. Although most DNA is packaged in chromosomes within the nucleus, mitochondria also have a small amount of their own DNA (known as mitochondrial DNA or mtDNA). In some cases, inherited changes in mitochondrial DNA can cause problems with growth, development, and function of the body’s systems. These mutations disrupt the mitochondria’s ability to generate energy efficiently for the cell.

Conditions caused by mutations in mitochondrial DNA often involve multiple organ systems. The effects of these conditions are most pronounced ... ..more

Changes that affect the structure of chromosomes can cause problems with growth, development, and function of the body’s systems. These changes can affect many genes along the chromosome and disrupt the proteins made from those genes.

Structural changes can occur during the formation of egg or sperm cells, in early fetal development, or in any cell after birth. Pieces of DNA can be rearranged within one chromosome or transferred between two or more chromosomes. The effects of structural changes depend on their size and location, and whether any genetic material is gained or lost. Some changes cause medical problems ... ..more

People have two copies of most genes, one copy inherited from each parent. In some cases, however, the number of copies varies—meaning that a person can be born with one, three, or more copies of particular genes. Less commonly, one or more genes may be entirely missing. This type of genetic difference is known as copy number variation (CNV).

Copy number variation results from insertions, deletions, and duplications of large segments of DNA. These segments are big enough to include whole genes. Variation in gene copy number can influence the activity of genes and ultimately affect many body functions ... ..more

The DNA sequence of a gene can be altered in a number of ways. Gene mutations have varying effects on health, depending on where they occur and whether they alter the function of essential proteins. The types of mutations include:

Missense mutation (illustration)
This type of mutation is a change in one DNA base pair that results in the substitution of one amino acid for another in the protein made by a gene.

Nonsense mutation (illustration)
A nonsense mutation is also a change in one DNA base pair. Instead of substituting one amino acid for another, however, the altered DNA ... ..more

The University of Utah Genetic Science Learning Center provides information about genetic disorders that explains why some mutations cause disorders but others do not. #Livewello

The National Coalition for Health Professional Education in Genetics explains how mutations can be harmful, neutral, or beneficial.

No; only a small percentage of mutations cause genetic disorders—most have no impact on health or development. For example, some mutations alter a gene’s DNA sequence but do not change the function of the protein made by the gene.

Often, gene mutations that could cause a genetic disorder are repaired by certain enzymes before the gene is expressed and an altered protein is produced. Each cell has a number of pathways through which enzymes recognize and repair mistakes in DNA. Because DNA can be damaged or mutated in many ways, DNA repair is an important process by which ... ..more
