Nutrigenetics and Nutrigenomics are exciting movements in the health and wellness field. Rich in biochemistry, nutrigenomics is a great tool to create evidenced-based recommendations for patients. In this presentation nutrition professionals will learn about:

  • Various options for genetic testing panels including pricing, lab information and reviewing results.

  • How to interpret genetic SNPs (Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms) in conjunction with patient symptoms and functional lab work to create the most precise meal plan and nutrition recommendations for your patients.

  • Various whole food and supplement options to support specific genetic variants.

This is a presentation meant to educate nutrition professionals on the cutting edge science of nutrigenomics, and how to implement it in clinical practice right away.
Upon successful completion of this one-hour course, the participant should be able to:

  1. Choose a genetic testing panel that is right for you and your practice.

  2. Interpret relevant SNP's with confidence.

  3. Recommend whole foods and/or specific nutritional supplements to support your patient's specific biochemistry and goals.
