Methylation — A Nutrition Revolution, Part 1
February 23, 2017
Methylation—everything you ever wanted to know. Dr. Kara Fitzgerald discusses one of the least-understood and most controversial topics that promises to revolutionize the field of nutrition. Methylation is a ubiquitous process that turns on, or turns off DNA expression, regulates the synthesis of many essential substances within the body, and breaks down hormones, medications, and toxins. It strongly influences epigenetics—the process by which the environment shapes the expression of genes. What are the limits of genetic testing for shedding light on methylation status? Do all patients with “methylation defects” according to genetic tests (like MTHFR) require mega-dosing of B vitamins? Can there be too much of a good thing when it comes to methylation? What natural substances act as “methylation adaptogens,” keeping methylation within an optimal, safe range? How do you go about testing for methylation efficiency? What nutrients besides B vitamins promote methylation? Does a normal homocysteine always indicate optimal methylation? Can lifestyle factors—diet, stress, and exercise—influence methylation? What medications and toxins impair methylation? Which health conditions call for methylation status evaluation? Learn why Dr. Fitzgerald emphasizes a “Methylation Diet and Lifestyle” by downloading her E-book with that title at www.drKaraFitzgerald.com and use the code “Intelligent10” to obtain a special discount for Intelligent Medicine listeners.

Precision Lifestyle Medicine, Part 1
January 10, 2017
A deep-dive on genetic testing: "Unzip Your Genes" is a new book by biochemist-turned-naturopath Dr. Jennifer Stagg. She maintains that genes are not your destiny, and that awareness of your genetic makeup can empower you toward personal health optimization—Precision Lifestyle Medicine. What is genomic testing? What questions can it answer? What is a SNP? What’s the importance of the MTHFR genes? How do SNPs affect food behaviors? How can knowledge of appetite and metabolic SNPs aid us in formulating diets and overcoming obstacles to weight loss? Is there an obesity gene? How can genes help us understand why some people have a paradoxical reaction to exercise—even gaining weight? Can SNPs predict sports aptitude? Can genomic profiles foretell which diet is most suitable for an individual? Is the science of “nutrigenomics” ready for primetime? Can SNPs tell us which supplements are appropriate for us? How best to obtain meaningful genetic analysis? Click HERE for part 2.

Inherited Family Trauma, Part 1
November 17, 2016
"It Didn’t Start With You: How Inherited Family Trauma Shapes Who We Are and How to End the Cycle." Mark Wolynn is an expert on inherited family trauma. New discoveries are showing us how trauma can be transmitted across generations. Dr. Wolynn explains the biological basis for how stress literally can alter gene expression. The implications are profound for therapy. New techniques can help unlock the origins of anxiety, depression, and obsessive compulsive disorder. How do meditation and positive visualization help to rearrange faulty neural circuitry to end the cycle of inherited trauma? Click HERE for part 2.

Unlocking Your Personal Genetic Code, Part 1
September 1, 2016
"The DNA Restart," by Dr. Sharon Moalem, aims to help to “unlock your personal genetic code to eat for your genes, lose weight and reverse aging;" How does “epigenetics” shape the expression of our genes? Can you overcome genetic faults through lifestyle modification? Nutrigenomics is the science of predicting what diet a person should be on based on genetic analysis—are genetic home tests that tell you what diet to follow not yet ready for primetime? Dr. Moalem shares some functional tests that readers can easily perform at home: the “cracker test;” the "ear wax test;” Dr. Moalem is also the author of a previous book “Survival of the Sickest” which explains how some seemingly bad genes help to protect us; What is “umami” and how can it be harnessed to keep us from over-eating? What crucial culinary tip helps to harness the benefits of garlic? Why does Dr. Moalem favor Oolong tea? How can a low-cholesterol diet sometimes backfire and result in higher cholesterol? How do exercise and sleep help us maximize our genetic potential? Click HERE for part 2.
