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.

Genetic Profiling, Part 1
January 29, 2015
Genetic profiling—is it the future of medicine? Dr. Michael Nova, Chief Science Officer for Pathway Genomics, shares his latest findings: Does genetic profiling provide the key to understanding our biochemical individuality? Is there an “obesity gene” that dooms certain people to fatness? Is DNA destiny? How does epigenetics shape the expression of our genes? Can we overcome our genetic programming through nutrition, exercise, and targeted supplementation? How far along are we in understanding the role genes play in predicting our health? What is the Pathway Genomics test? Does it reveal MTHFR variations that require people to take more methylfolate, B12 and B6? How does it inform our choices about diet, exercise, and nutraceuticals? Are there concerns about confidentiality in divulging genetic findings to employers, insurance companies, and government databases? Why are Pathway Genomics genetic profiles only available via health providers and not direct-to-consumers? Click HERE for part 2.
