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.
This presentation explores navigating genetic expression in relationship to unique symptomology. Topics include the similarities and differences between phase I and phase II detox; the symptoms or disease states that may indicate poor acetylation, glucuronidation or sulfation (Phase II detox); core enzymes that are responsible for the clearance of salicylates, oxalates, and histamines; and possible therapies including lifestyle, nutritional, botanical, and pharmacotherapy to support key enzymatic variations for specific cases provided.
Dr. Leah Hollon holds a BS in Psychology from Virginia Commonwealth University and a MPH from the VCU School of Medicine. Dr. Hollon completed her ND degree and residency training at NUNM. She has served as an Assistant Professor of Pharmacy and is a co-owner of Richmond Natural Medicine. She has been an editor for the American Journal of Pharmaceutical Education (AJPE), has been published on the use of alternative medicine within Central Appalachia, and assisted in the establishment of a drug court program in Southwest Virginia. Her time within Appalachia led to tailored support for PTSD, where today the majority of those she sees present with unresolved trauma. She has worked within the field for 18 years, where some of her earliest research focused on intentional injury within a level 1 trauma center ED. Additionally, she is passionate about educating future practitioners, where she serves as the first ND residency site within Virginia.
