May 14, 2018 Puzzle Piece


Marc Harris, ND, MD, PhD is the author of today’s Puzzle Piece and will be teaching the evaluation, understanding and treatment of METHYLATION and genetic SNP’s beginning June 23-24, 2018, in the Seattle region.
He has developed a presentation that will allow your understanding of the complicated life-giving process of methylation.  He has formulated nutrition for each step that might be blocked or stressed due to genetic SNP’s.  This is available through OHS:  800-890-4547.
On July 20-22-18 Dr Harris and I will teach a Stem Cell class in the Denver Colorado area (Parker).  We will demonstrate the use of Biological Allographs, Ozone, PRP and Neurotherapy to complement the Six Steps to Wellness and the whole food, predigested OHS Nutrition.
We will expand on how to use Opti-MagnaStem, Opti-Brain, Opti-Mito-Force, along with the other many natural non-GMO whole food preparations.

Epigenetics is the umbrella term describing all aspects of genetic control.
The human genome project was completed in 2003 to much ballyhoo and as described by then President Clinton as “We are here to celebrate the completion of the first survey of the entire human genome. Without a doubt, this is the most important, most wondrous map ever produced by humankind.”

By far the most studied of all epigenetic is Methylation.  In a nutshell Methylation controls our DNA, Brain Chemistry, detoxification, hormone balance, and energy production, along with mitochondria.

There is a split in the biological research community.  One group claims methylation takes place 2 billion times per second.  Another group says it is 1 billion times per second. Someone had a lot of time on their hands: al least 1 second.  It seems a moot point.

What we have learned for the methylation cycle is there can and are single changes to genes (SNP’s, single nucleotide polymorphisms) and these can have a profound effect of how the genes code for the proteins resulting in protein coding errors.  This can result to a 0-100% reduction in function.  Some of the SNPs are not consistent with life.  Some are irrelevant.  Some are not consistent with optimal health.

A SNP may occur in a non-coding region.  These generally have no effect on the protein.  If in a coding region it can have minor to major effects.

There have been estimates of 10 million SNPS.  Estimates are that everyone has 1000 SNPs on average.   Depending on where the SNP occurs, it will be more or less of a problem.  Still, how do you figure out 1000 SNPs.  Who has that kind of time or technology?  Dr Marc Harris developed a way…

The are vitamins and nutrients that either act as a cofactor or structural component of an enzyme.  If an enzyme has poor structure, due to a SNP,  additional cofactors or structural nutrients may bring the enzyme back to function.  Sometimes we have to provide the enzyme.

The list of methylation caused or contributed to diseases grows day by day.


  • Diabetes
  • Fibromyalgia/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
  • Cancer
  • Pulmonary Embolism
  • Addictive Behavior, including alcoholism
  • Insomnia
  • Autism or down’s syndrome
  • Frequent miscarriages
  • Bipolar or manic depression
  • Allergies or Multiple Chemical Sensitivities
  • Atherosclerosis
  • Spina Bifida or Cleft Palate or Neural Tube Defects
  • Multiple Sclerosis and other Autoimmune Disorders
  • Hashimoto’s or Hypothyroidism
  • ADD or ADHD
  • Dementia/Alzheimer’s
  • Schizophrenia
  • Anxiety
  • Neuropathy
  • Chronic Viral Infections
As previoudly stated, this list continues to grow!
The key is to determine the most important SNPs.  These are the SNPs that have the largest impact on health.  When corrected, these are the SNPs that take our patients from good to great.  These are the patients for whom we may have done everything right.  The Six Step to Wellness are all in place.  They eat well.  Yet, they may still not be getting better.  These are the important SNPs.

Most physiacians measure MTHFR, give ther patients methyfolate and call it a day.  The most important thing to realize is the genes and enzymes work together.  If you treat an MTHFR and don’t know what is happening downstream in those SNPs, you will make this patient worse.  There are a managable number of SNPs (30 or so) the we need to understand (not just MTHFR) to figure out this piece of the health puzzle that takes are patients out of a hole and from good health to optimal health.

We look forward to seeing you in a seminar soon where Dr Harris will give you an understanding and the tools to make a difference.

Yours in Health and Wellness,
