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. 

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.
