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. Leah Hollon 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.

When we speak about maternal and paternal health, our therapies often support basic nutrition and general wellness. This can be useful, but this may not be enough for everyone. Fertility serves as a conduit of the past. Gametes hold the story, and in fact, the imprints of emotional, physical, and spiritual health as well as illness. Thus, with this understanding, pre-conception, and conception can hold opportunities for healing one’s lineage. Yet, if unhealed can lead to illnesses in future offspring. The truth is many patients carry these remembrances of their lineage, but are unaware of the sequelae. Thus, these old wounds call to a greater ethical responsibility. How do we heal the lineage? What is our responsibility as individuals, people and healers, to reduce future illness? This session will explore the biochemistry of how past familial illness can imprint and also provide specific healing therapies for future generations.

In this presentation, you will learn about the mechanisms and pathophysiology of how trauma can imprint on future generations; disease states or conditions that are highly linked to generational imprints of suffering; populations globally that may have a greater risk for intergenerational trauma; and specific techniques or therapies that can be used as support and healing for parental health and future generations.
