Hormonal secretion, metabolism and excretion are all swayed by both our nutritional status and the many enzymes systems that may be up, or down-regulated as a result of our unique single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs).
SNP testing is booming in medicine but we need to be mindful of how these tests are being delivered and interpreted. Today we discuss how to deliver genetic results in the clinical setting to empower rather than burden clients.
A number of chronic health concerns seen in children are linked to toxicity and resultant oxidative stress, enzyme dysfunction and inflammation. Some examples of these conditions include allergies and chemical sensitivities, immune dysfunction, neurological and behavioural conditions, and cardio-metabolic diseases.
Anxiety disorders appear to be caused by an interaction of biopsychosocial factors, including genetic vulnerability, which interact with situations, stress or trauma to produce clinically significant syndromes. Symptoms vary depending on the specific anxiety disorder.
Today we talk to Annalie Corse about the clinical relevance of COMT and CBS genes. Two important enzymes that are vital for healthy catecholamine, catechol estrogens, several drugs and homocysteine metabolism.
What can your genes tell you about your potential for addictive tendendies? Today we welcome back naturopath, Elizma Lambert to share her expertise on this subject.
When supporting fertility management, from a functional and naturopathic perspective, there are a number of factors that are typically taken into consideration to optimise fertility and birth outcomes. One emerging area is Nutrigenomics.
What is nutrigenomics and why will it be important in the future practice of healthcare?
