NUTRITIONAL GENOMICS

What are Nutritional Genomics, Nutrigenomics or Epigenetics?

The traditional view of genetics is that "Genes are our Destiny", and whatever our genes dictate is our fate.

But advanced science actually does not support that. Research in the last 10-15 years has shown that gene expression is surprisingly flexible, which resulted in the creation of the field of Epigenetics (control of gene expression).

Genes contain programs and Epigenetic controls can activate or deactivate these programs, depending on the need of the cell, organ or organism, which results in countless different possibilities of genetic expressions.

Nutritional genomics describes how nutrients and botanicals influence this genetic expression either positively or negatively (including environmental factors, toxins, stress, etc.).

If you hear about these revolutionary concepts for the first time, we recommend visiting our Videos page above to get an idea about what some of the most cutting edge scientists and physicians of our times have to say about nutritional genomics. It is quite an amazing new field and opens up a host of new interventional methods on the nutritional level.

We are basically at the beginning of a medical revolution and you have found one of the early adapting practices, which means that you can take advantage of our current knowledge now, instead of waiting another decade...

HOW DOES IT WORK?

The information you will receive from us in regards to Nutritional Genomics is not intended to be a medical treatment or diagnosis, but an informational consultation. It has great potential to help you understand lifelong problems and struggles and potential new ways for you to alleviate these for a fraction of the price of a medical genetic test.

Our clients are very happy with the solutions and information nutritional genomics has provided them.

 

We continuously increase our knowledge and follow the newest research in order to deliver qualified interpretations of nutrigenomic findings, to explain in detail what they mean for you, how well researched they are and what actions you can initiate to optimize your health, based on scientific and clinical evidence.

 

 

Our nutritional advice is personal, individualized, science-based, sound, balanced, cutting-edge and affordable -

offering the best possible options for you and your loved ones to become healthy, stay healthy and optimize your metabolism.

WHY DO I NEED A NUTRITIONIST?

Clinical Nutrition is located right in the center of healthcare. It is the most important tool we have to influence our own health.

 

Based on advanced academic degrees (Masters of Science or Doctorate level), Functional Nutrition is deeply rooted in cellular biochemistry and an ideal addition to Conventional-, Naturopathic-, Integrative- and Functional Medicine.

Medical Doctors, Osteopathic Physicians, Chiropractic Doctors, Nurse Practitioners, Physician Assistants and Dentists do not usually receive  sufficient nutritional training as part of their medical education.

But with Nutrition being the centerpiece of health and our most important contributor to optimal well-being, we can not afford to ignore it any longer...

 

The minimum qualification for a Certified Nutrition Specialist is an advanced graduate degree from an accredited University (MS, DCN, DHSc) with a minimum of 3-4 years of specialized nutritional training, plus 1000 hours of clinical internships, and continuous education, leading to a deep understanding of chemical pathways, nutritional requirements for optimized metabolism in different stages of life, activities, genders, genetic backgrounds and diseases.

 

Our work is based on the scientific concept of homeostasis, which is the ideal metabolic balance that our bodies are constantly trying to attain.

 

Considering the complexity of the human organism, the ideal healthcare team would consist of Naturopathic-, Functional- and Integrative Physicians in addition to advanced Clinical Nutritionists and other healthcare providers who complement each other with their unique knowledge, tools, skills, perspective and clinical experience.

 

You will find all these in our new and expanded office opening in December 2017,

in the vicinity of the Loma Linda University Medical Center in San Bernardino, CA.

(Until then please contact the current office in Redlands).
