Chronic conditions that are controlled by genes

June 16, 2016


Ricardo Miranda, L.Ac., an integrative medicine practitioner that incorporates functional medicine, Chinese medicine (acupuncture and herbs) and genetics joins eHealth Radio and the General Health and Healthcare Channels. He specializes in MTHFR and disease prevention through genetics. Miranda's groundbreaking work in genetics and MTHFR has elevated his status to a world renowned practitioner changing our entire approach to modern science.


Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels & guest Ricardo Miranda discuss the following:

  • What is MTHFR and where can people find out more about MTHFR?
  • What are some chronic conditions that are controlled by genes?
  • How do mutations on genes leave the body susceptible to these chronic conditions?
  • How does a DNA test help and where can they get it done?
  • If mutations are identified by a DNA test what does acupuncture do to help the body?


Summary: It is important for patients to seek the help of a health care practitioner that is well trained in MTHFR and methylation. Genetics is a very complex field and it can get very complicated very fast.


Ricardo Miranda holds a Master’s degree in Traditional Oriental Medicine and a specialization in Acupuncture Orthopedics from the American Acupuncture Academy. Ricardo brings the latest and best advances in both Eastern and Western medicine by incorporating Genetics, Epigenetics and Methylation Imbalance treatments.


Ricardo also addresses environmental toxicity (heavy metals etc.) and cell inflammation in his assessments and treatments. Ricardo incorporates functional medicine and offers hormone balancing tests with special programs to reset your hormones*. Other tests may include adrenal stress tests, pH level check ups, computerized body fat analysis and metabolic assessment among other personalized screenings.


Ricardo believes that a comprehensive look at a patient’s health including blood work and genetic screening for mutations such as (COMT, MAOA, MTHFR, MTRR, CBS, DAO, etc.) combined with the ancient knowledge of pulse diagnosis is the best approach to optimizing one’s health. Ricardo provides nutritional guidance to his patients based on a combination of Western and Chinese medicine nutritional protocols, pulse diagnosis and genetic findings. All of this speaks to his intense desire to provide the best treatments to his patients.
