Your Genes Don’t Have the Final Say

Each person is especially susceptible to certain diseases when compared to other people, but each person is also more resistant to certain diseases when compared to others. In this sense, each person has particular genetic weaknesses and strengths.

It is a person’s behavior or lifestyle plus one’s genetic weaknesses that often result in abnormalities or diseases. Most common among these diseases are high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, gallstones, and cancers of the colon-prostate-breast.

In order to proactively avoid the conditions that encourage disease, in a person who has the propensity, the following items should be considered essentials for prevention:

  1. BREATHING – Our air should be clean. Avoid being in smoke, dust or fumes, e.g., smoking more than two cigarettes every other day, being around fireplaces and diesel engines;
  2. DRINKING – Drink clean water and weak herbal teas, the body is 75% water;
  3. EATING – Eat properly. Dietary goals should be to consume VERY HIGH FIBER and LOW FAT foods (e.g., cooked, unprocessed whole grains, fresh vegetables, beans, fruit and optionally some fish) with minimal refined or processed foods;
  4. EXERCISING – Walk at least three miles a day, 5 days per week, 50 weeks a year. With this as a goal, put a plan in place to work up to this. There are many options to accomplish optimum fitness, e.g., running, weight training, biking, etc;
  5. STRESS MANAGEMENT – Acknowledge and accept the difficulties of reality. We must deal with problems as best possible, accepting failure, but remaining determined
    and optimistic.

Most diseases occur IF, and only IF, susceptible people make lifestyle choices that trigger the expression of that genetic tendency. Everyone should feel empowered to change the course of their medical history which otherwise may seem inevitable.

Think You Have COVID-19? We Are Testing.

How does it work?

  • Call your local AMC and consult with one of our physicians. The care provider will determine which diagnostic fits best for you – COVID-19 PCR or Antibody testing.
  • Request an appointment for COVID-19 testing either in clinic or at your place.
  • Results for PCR testing may take up to 24 hours to process while results for Antibody testing are ready within 15 minutes.

How PCR and Antibody Testing differ from each other?

  • The PCR test takes a swab from the back of the nose and throat and looks for the presence of the virus itself.
  • The Antibody testing looks at a blood sample for antibodies generated in the body in response to the virus, showing whether or not the person tested has been exposed to it in the past.
Whether you have detected COVID-19 symptoms, require an Official COVID-19 Certificate for traveling purposes or if you’re wondering if you’ve previously had coronavirus — contact AMC Kyiv.
*During busy lab times, PCR Testing may take up to 48 hours.
