Dr. Sam Shay
Back in 2015, like actually, I think after 2014, when I actually started doing testing, and then I went more and more towards functional medicine as an entire study and field, developed a model called the Ten Pillars of Health, which is the primary model in which I work with clients because I found that including for myself, there are 10 major pillars of health. And people who struggle chronically, including me, have a minimum seven out of 10 pillars crumbling, and it explains why people who struggled for years and years and years, that after trying protocols, products, practitioners, they get kind of marginal, temporary, or unpredictable results. Because if you sit on seven tacks and you remove three technically you're healthier, but you don't feel any better.
Dr. Sam Shay
So brain, bowel, body, burst exercise, I find a B for that. So that's what I found: biotoxins bio-nutrients, breakfast, bothers, bugs, and bedtime. So I feel it's a pretty complete list and people had the seven out of ten. I also found four of those pillars could be sledgehammered. The body, car accident violence, or sports injuries, or that's a sledgehammer event which can knock out and then biotoxins can be a sledgehammer and a massive toxic exposure. The bothers can be sledgehammers if someone dies, a divorce a lawsuit, the firing of a job.
Dr. Sam Shay
This is not about variants, it is about duplicates. So there's a three-dimensionality to genetics that most people don't know. It's the copy numbers. It's not just merely if you’re red, yellow, green dot, it's how many duplicates of a certain genes matter. And that's the three-dimensionality that I really don't see discussed anywhere else. And so there's a few very meaningful things that can be done with that particular bit of technology.
