Understand your genetic data and optimize your health and diet.

Millions of genetics research papers have been published. But… No one is reading them nor putting the cutting-edge science into practice!

My goal is to explain current genomics, health, and wellness research so that everyone can benefit from it.
I’ll make you smarter. All you have to do is dive in and get started.

Learn. Experiment. Optimize.

Inflammation and Immune Response:

  • IL13 Genomics: Elevating Th2 Immune Response
    Interleukin-13 (IL-13) is a signaling molecule important in the immune response. Excessive IL-13 can tip you towards a Th2 dominant immune response, and variants increase the risk of allergies and asthma.
  • Acupuncture and Genomics: Who is more likely to respond?
    Have you tried acupuncture? This treatment has been around for thousands of years but did you know that your genetic variants can impact how well you respond?
  • Tendinitis Genes
    Do you have problems with your tennis elbow, rotator cuff, knees, or Achilles tendon? Discover how your genes influence the risk of having tendon problems.

  • Migraines: Genes, Root Causes, and Personalized Solutions
    Your genes play a role in your susceptibility to migraines. Find out what is going on when you have a migraine and solutions that fit your genes.
  • What is MTHFR? Is it important?
    The MTHFR gene is important for how your body utilizes folate (vitamin B9) for creating neurotransmitters, detoxifying toxicants, and maintaining a healthy heart. Check your 23andMe or AncestryDNA data for the MTHFR C677T and A1298C variants.
  • MTHFR – Beyond C677T and A1298C
    The MTHFR C677T and A1298C variants get a lot of press, but they do not give the whole picture of the MTHFR gene. Additional variants are impacting the functionality of the enzyme.

My Story…

Hi! I’m Debbie Moon. Welcome to Genetic Lifehacks.

When I first had my genetic data sequenced, I was both amazed at the research available in academic journals and frustrated by the difficult language and disconnected topics.

Genetic Lifehacks began as a way to share what I was learning about genetics with my family and friends. My goal has always been to freely share information so that everyone can benefit.

As the website grew in popularity, I decided that I needed to know more… both more about genetics and more about how the pieces of the biological systems fit together. Since my undergraduate degree was in engineering, I went back to school and received my Master’s degree in Biological Sciences from Clemson University.

Now a full-time endeavor, Genetic Lifehacks has reached over 2 million readers, equipping people to use their genetic data to optimize their health.
