OUR IN-HOME DNA TESTS
DNA ConneXions offers five molecular-based laboratory assays:
The Lyme Detection Panel, the Full View (i.e., Comprehensive Oral Health Panel), the Propensity Panel, the Apolipoprotein E Panel (ApoE), and the Gluten Intolerance Panel.
For more information, please click on each test below.
LYME DETECTION PANEL
The DNA ConneXions Lyme Panel Lyme disease test kit identifies three different Borrelia species and eight of its common co-infectors. A positive PCR result indicates the presence of spirochete DNA, while a negative result does not prove you don’t have Lyme disease.
COMPREHENSIVE ORAL HEALTH PANEL
This home DNA test identifies foreign microbial DNA of aerobic and anaerobic bacteria, fungi, viruses and parasites in removed teeth, blood, tissue, dental implants, bone grafts and other biological samples. This test examines 88 microbes in total.
The DNA ConneXions Propensity Panel identifies 19 of the most common species not only involved in periodontal diseases, but also those microbes which have been implicated in the progression of a variety of chronic, systemic conditions.
APOLIPOPROTEIN E PANEL (ApoE)
Cheek cells allow us to determine your ability to detoxify mercury, Alzheimer’s susceptibility and other autoimmune/ neurological diseases. This apolipoprotein e test will determine what ApoE genotype you are (2/2, 2/3, 3/3, 3/4, or 4/4).
GLUTEN INTOLERANCE TEST PANEL
Cheek cells allow us to determine if you have the HLA marker for DQ 2 or DQ 8. The presence of either of these genetic markers is 95% predictive for gluten intolerance/sensitivity. The presence of both markers is 95% predictive.
COMBINATION PANEL TESTING
The DNA ConneXions Lyme Panel can be combined with any one of the Oral Panel test kit options (i.e., Superfloss, Extracted Tooth, or Oral Blood) for a discounted price. The two samples must be returned together in order to receive the discounted price.
Dr. Huggins passes the torch to Dr. Blanche
Dr. Blanche discovered early in her work with Dr. Huggins that if she followed his very specific protocol when treating patients, her patients’ health would improve. Dr. Huggins taught her, what is now referred to as the Huggins-Grube Protocol, which includes DNA testing and biocompatibility testing.
Prior to the death of Dr. Huggins, he passed his torch to Dr. Blanche and she is dedicated to continuing his legacy through her work with DNA Connexions, Biocomp Labs, Huggins Applied Healing, and Centers for Healing.
