MUIH Nutrition Symposium

MUIH Nutrition Symposium

Nutritional genomics holds enormous potential for improvements in health care at the individual and population levels through the maintenance of health and the blocking and reversal of disease states. Nutrigenomics is at the intersection of nutrition and genetic expression, specifically how nutrients influence the genome and their relationship to health and wellness.

In partnership with Maryland Naturopathic Doctors Association (MNDA), the MUIH Nutrition Department presented the 2018 Nutrition Symposium, Nutritional Genomics in Clinical Practice. 

The field of nutrigenomics emphasizes the critical intersection of nutrition and genetic expression, and MUIH’s symposium centered specifically on translating nutrigenomics information for the clinician and clinical practice. These recorded presentations from the symposium will allow you to learn the science behind the field and gain practical skills to apply in practice to meet the growing patient and client demand for this information and treatment protocols.

Recorded presentations from the symposium include:

  • Tara Nayak: Introduction to Nutritional Genomics
  • Leah Hollon: What Do you Mean Curly Kale Made you Feel Worse?
  • Eleonora Gafton: The Science of Preserving Genomic Compounds in Cooking
  • Ralph Esposito: SNP Away Prostate Cancer: A Genomic Approach to Prostate Cancer
  • Anil Bajnath: A Clinician's Guide to Genomic Testing
  • Tara Nayak: Neurodegenerative Networks: Combining Precision Clinical Testing for the Complex Client
  • Jessica Pizano: Using Functional Testing to Validate Genomic Testing
  • Chrissie Williamson: Exploring Neurotransmitters, Methylation, Transsulfuration and the Microbiome
  • Ginger Nash: Addressing Today’s Complex Patient: How to Approach Those Patients that Aren’t Getting Better with Basic Naturopathic Support
  • Kevin Passer: The role of chronic infections in complex cases
  • Autumn Frandsen: Diagnosis and Treatment of Mycotoxin Illness versus Mold Allergies
  • Leah Hollon: Pre-conception, Conception, and the Effects of Trauma on the Lineage
  • Lindsey Berkson: Oxytocin Protocols for Digestive Disorders
  • Erin Kinney: Case Study on Anxiety

This package of recorded presentations from the 2018 Nutritional Genomics in Clinical Practice Symposium offers an opportunity for individuals to explore and apply the emerging field of nutritional genomics research in clinical practice.

Offering Description:

Nutritional genomics holds enormous potential for improvements in health care at the individual and population levels through the maintenance of health and the blocking and reversal of disease states. Nutrigenomics is at the intersection of nutrition and genetic expression, specifically how nutrients influence the genome and their relationship to health and wellness. The emergence of this field parallels the emergence of the broader field of precision health care, which tailors health care approaches to individuals based on their unique genetic makeup. The American College of Nutrition forecasts nutritional genomics as the third hottest area of nutrition research for 2020.

Nutritional genomics is emerging as an essential part of health care as the scientifically-based role of nutrition in health and disease is increasingly understood and as the scope and precision of genomic technologies continues to evolve. Together, these have led to a need for well-educated professionals in nutrition and genomics, especially those with expertise at their intersection, in the expanding healthcare industry. 

In partnership with Maryland Naturopathic Doctors Association (MNDA), the MUIH Nutrition Department presented the 2018 Nutrition Symposium, Nutritional Genomics in Clinical Practice.
