Lecture Overview:

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. Lindsey Berkson 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.

In this presentation, you will learn about the threat of hormone-altering chemicals on the microbiome, intestinal motility and repair, along with promoting genetic glitches.

Presenter Bio:

Lindsey Berkson has been in practice for 40 years with an emphasis on hormones, nutrition, digestion, and intimacy. Berkson was a hormone scholar at a renowned estrogen think tank at Tulane University (The Center for Bioenvironmental Research). She has taught re-licensing seminars to professionals (MDs, pharmacists, NDs, acupuncturists, chiropractors and nutritionists) for many decades, and formulated the first female nutraceutical line for physicians in the U.S. (Metagenics FEM LINE). She and Dr. J.V. Wright hold a patent on bioidentical hormones. Berkson holds another collaborative patent on a drug for dialysis and diabetic patients. Berkson has collaborated and published original research on dialysis and nutrition with The University of Texas Medical School at Houston and Bryan Nathan PhD. 

Berkson hosts the Dr. Berkson’s Best Health Radio Show. She is a fellow of the prestigious research institute, the Health Science Collegium. Berkson consults with people and physicians internationally; specializing in medical nutrition for breast cancer and inflammatory bowel disease patients, as well as serious complex cases. Berkson pioneered the concept of “green pregnancies” and the unappreciated role of hormones and the gut. 

For many years Berkson was ill with multiple tumors, cancers and serious illnesses. While writing one of the breakthrough books on endocrine disruption (Hormone Deception, McGraw-Hill), she learned these issues were due to “victimhood” from the very phenomena this book was translating to the public. Once root cause was known, appropriate and effective treatment could be initiated. Berkson’s an advocate of “following physiology” and “ID-ing root cause” to get a patient truly well.
