“It’s not only moving that creates new starting points. Sometimes all it takes is a subtle shift in perspective, an opening of the mind, an intentional pause and reset, or a new route to start to see new options and new possibilities.”
~ Kristin Armstrong
We are curious about the possibilities of measuring the methylation profiles of individuals prior to and following their chosen wellness modality. For example, can Integrative Medicine sufficiently shift the epigenetic markers of our molecular clock to observe a change in cellular age?
We would also love to explore the idea of using the methylation profiles that are currently used as biomarkers for ill health as signals of a return to wellness.
We are mostly interested in understanding whether changes in a methylation profile, and any resulting gene expression differences, can explain some of the health benefits reported by the Integrative Medicine community.
