Credential: Certificate of Participation
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. The recorded presentation from the symposium by Dr. Ginger Nash 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 information.
Have you noticed that today’s patients are not responding to “the basics” of naturopathic treatment? Do you feel confident addressing the complexity of issues we now see in daily practice? Many patients have multiple organ systems involved in their poor state of health and multiple diagnoses to grapple with as well. Do you know where to start? Are you getting deep and lasting results with your patients?
This presentation aims to provide a framework for addressing complex issues in the modern patient. Our thinking and our medicines must be adapting along with the changes in environmental stressors, which include nutrient depletions, pathogens and toxic accumulations in our bodies. The key is to develop a step-by-step approach with simple directives that patients can implement and maintain to recover their health. It's a matter of understanding the connections between different types of complaints so that we effectively unravel the knot of "dis-ease" we see in our patients. Topics covered in the presentation include developing a framework to address complex patients, using targeted nutritionals to stabilize patients, the importance of whole-body thinking and addressing the extra-cellular matrix, the difference between drainage and detoxification, and how the microbiome and genetics fit within this framework.
Dr. Ginger Nash graduated from The National College of Naturopathic Medicine in 1998. Her early career focused on women's health and she lectured extensively throughout the U.S. on the topic of women’s hormones. A growing interest in personalized medicine led to extensive studies in complex homeopathy with Dr. Gérard Guéniot for over 10 years. Beginning in 2007, Dr. Nash immersed herself in the study and science of nutrigenomics and accepted a position as Clinic Director at Dr. Peter D’Adamo’s private clinic for 3 years until the clinic relocated.
Dr. Nash is past clinical faculty at the University of Bridgeport's College of Naturopathic Medicine, working there for 6 years, and continues to offer educational programs for health care practitioners throughout the U.S. and Canada.
Dr. Nash operates a successful private practice in New Haven, Connecticut specializing in women’s health, tick-borne illness, and nutritional genomics.
