We receive from our parents not only their DNA, but complete chromosomes. These are surrounded by proteins (histones). These are also passed on. Thus, far more information can be transferred from parents to offspring than was previously assumed. It remains to be seen, however, to what extent this information will lead to epigenetic changes being inherited. This is a research approach that we are investigating primarily by means of molecular mechanisms of the cell membrane.
Which characteristics are inherited by daughter cells is therefore not only dependent on the DNA sequence. Chromosomes or individual genes can be significantly influenced in their activity. This is called "epigenetic imprinting". The DNA sequence is preserved but modified and often "silenced" (DNA methylation or alteration of histones).
Thus, everything fundamental is fixed in the DNA, but it seems possible to modify or rewrite this by environmental factors in the broadest sense.
"For me, the IGL laboratory has become indispensable in order to qualitatively and quantitatively detect environmental exposures on a cellular level and to show the patient their relevance for the individual recovery process. This serves both the detection and elimination of health-relevant exposures, as well as the indication and follow-up of detoxification measures.
I also use the IGL lab to gain an understanding of necessary behavioral changes. As a result, many patients actually change their consumption behavior, which benefits individual health and that of the planet.
I also particularly value the opportunity to discuss individual reports in person in order to identify possible therapeutic approaches."

"I got to know the IGL laboratory in March 2018 as part of a cell membrane therapy training course. I was immediately enthusiastic about the diagnostic results and the therapeutic measures based on them. The enthusiasm continues to this day, and I can no longer imagine my daily practice without diagnostics in the IGL laboratory."

"I am very satisfied with the laboratory, the accessibility, contact and now also with the customer center. Everything always went quickly and wonderfully when I had questions."

"IGL is the only laboratory I am aware of which can shed light on Robert Naviaux’ s ground breaking work on the cell danger response, mitochondrial function, as well as reveal toxic insults to the cell membrane and mitochondrial DNA. In my clinical opinion and practice, there is no other tests that comes close to what the IGL test reveals. It has been an absolute game changer in how I approach complex patient diagnosis and treatment."
