scientists have long recognized that many psychiatric disorders tend to run in families, suggesting potential genetic roots. Such disorders include autism, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), bipolar disorder, major depression and schizophrenia. Symptoms can overlap and so distinguishing among these 5 major psychiatric syndromes can be difficult. Their shared symptoms suggest they may also share similarities at the biological level. In fact, recent studies have turned up limited evidence of shared genetic risk factors, such as for schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, autism and schizophrenia, and depression and bipolar disorder.

I have found these genetic links in my practice everywhere, from simple allergies to skin conditions to weight issues. We are all products of our parents and the environment we grew up in. No reason to feel guilty or defensive. But it sure is helpful to realize these facts of life and consider the many personal details to overcome individual health issues and life challenges.
Depression is a rather common phenomenon and comes in various sizes and shapes. From periods of feeling sad (for no rational reason) to debilitating depression and suicide. There are 22 genes with variants which show up in multiple psychiatric disorders. I will just mention a few, which I have worked with, and whose frequencies are available in our test kits and IMAET software.
DBH – provides instructions for producing the enzyme dopamine beta (β)-hydroxylase. This enzyme converts dopamine to norepinephrine, both of which are chemical messengers (neurotransmitters) that transmit signals between nerve cells.
CACNA1 - this gene belongs to a family of genes that provide instructions for making calcium channels. These channels, which transport positively charged calcium atoms (calcium ions) across cell membranes, play a key role in a cell's ability to generate and transmit electrical signals.
SLC6A4 - This gene encodes a norepinephrine (noradrenaline) transporter, which is responsible for reuptake of norepinephrine into presynaptic nerve terminals and is a regulator of norepinephrine homeostasis.
MTHFR - methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase,is important for a chemical reaction involving forms of the vitamin folate (also called vitamin B9)
Please, don’t get discouraged by the complexity of our genes and the metabolism they govern. It can be managed and learned and connecting the dots becomes more and more exciting and rewarding.
Many functional disorders, i.e. ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) have hundreds of gene variants involved, that have been researched. The combination of variants involved depend on environmental triggers and are infinite. So, a method is essential to energetically work up the functional genomic problems presented as variants and SNPs. I have developed the SHOW Method for that purpose, which is integrated into ASR Biofeedback™
Functionally, life happens at the interface of the environment and our genome. The interrelationship between these two entities has been named yin/yang, positive/negative polarity and in binary data terms I/O. This interface is functioning energetic with frequencies. The energy itself has been called QI energy by TCM and Life Force by others. I look at this mystical energy as the totality of cellular communications. And ultimately, ASR Biofeedback interfaces with that data flow with a special 8-channel harness system. This Qi energy and cellular communications contain all the energetic exchanges going on between the environment and the genome.
Within this data flow we can discover the genomic variants causing dysfunction and inflammation. This part is usually accomplished with a scan or reactivity test and the imbalanced components of the database are listed on top of the screen. A skilled practitioner can now assemble a harmonizing, resonant treatment to be presented back into the body’s cellular communications network, the meridians. From there, the informational biofeedback reaches every cell and the DNA within them for a tune-up, an energy balancing, gene harmonizing biofeedback. Genes are resonating entities, literally resonating with the environment and therefore amazingly well respond to resonant input.
The SHOW Method has 4 basic steps:
1) analyze and optimize the entire metabolism by harmonizing genomic variants. Allergies are a big category within this step.
2) strengthen and engage the Immune System to clean up infections, incl. so-called dormant infections. The Immune System is operated by the DNA.
3) maximize and harmonize the detoxification of all kinds of chemicals, toxins and debris. This highly detailed process is also operated by our DNA, containing tons of variants causing problems.
4) realize deep emotional traumas and resolve them. This sometimes requires a specialist's attention.
Our DNA has evolved over thousands of years, by adapting to environmental challenges. Because of this nature of our genome, which makes it sensitive and responsive to energetic stimuli, it responds to specific and precise energetic harmonics or frequencies. We can actively harmonize genetic expression by applying specific and precise energetic signatures in the form of frequencies. One clinically successful way to accomplish some of this, has been the SHOW Method applied with ASR Biofeedback™.
Depression is a complex condition and these methods need to be looked at as complementary to medical treatment. Timing is important in all functional and auto-immune conditions. The younger the individual the better the results, the more profound the outcome. The older the person, the longer the condition has been going on and the more difficult to remedy the dysfunction as well as rehabilitate associated tissue damage, such as the brain and the adrenals. The scientific discoveries in genetics and genomics are adding precision to the energy work in mental disorders and giving us more harmonious treatment options than ever before.
