What is 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 recent science actually does not support that. Research has shown that gene expression is surprisingly flexible, which created 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...






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 test.

Our clients are very happy with the solutions and guidance nutritional genomics has provided them in regards to their lifestyle, diet and Environment.

Clinical Nutrition is the central element of healthcare. It is the most important tool we have to influence our own health and really should be a primary care specialty.


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, PhD) 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 an ideal metabolic balance that our bodies are constantly trying to attain.


Considering the complexity of the human organism, the ideal healthcare team consists of Naturopathic-, Functional- and Integrative Physicians in addition to Acupuncturists, advanced Clinical Nutritionists, Health Coaches, Medical Massage Therapists, Physical Therapists, Brain trainers and other advanced healthcare providers complementing each other with their unique knowledge, tools, skills, perspective and clinical experience.


You will find all these in our future clinic -

The Loma Linda Center for Integrative Medicine.
