Unwrapping DNA With Nutritional Biochemistry!

Unwrapping DNA With Nutritional Biochemistry!

Nutritional Biochemistry and Genomics… One of the ways that I help clients with supporting their health is by looking at their unique genomic blueprint and designing nutrition programs as they relate to biochemical pathways. Do-it-yourself genetic kits like 23andme are now affordable and more and more people are taking advantage of learning about their own genes. While it’s based on science, there’s also an “art” to studying the impact of genes on health. A critical piece of the puzzle is whether or not a gene is...

Scientists: Vitamin B12 Shapes Microbial Communities

Of course we are not microbes, but your intestinal tract is the host to about 100 TRILLION bacteria, about three pounds worth. These microbes make up a complex ecological system, that when in balance, provides us with protection from the “outside” elements. So, when I read this article about how Vitamin B12 helps shape microbial communities, I was intrigued. “Vitamin B12 has an importance to microbial communities even greater than has been anticipated,” said chemist Aaron Wright of the Department of Energy’s...

Got 23andme? Get a PureGenomics Report

Have you seen all the TV commercials for 23andme (at home genetic testing kits) and Mother’s Day? After all, we have a lot to thank our mothers for. We get half of our genes from our Moms. That’s more than just our hair, eye and skin color, stature and weight tendencies, temperament and even natural intellect and talents. Our genes also impact our health, wellness, and own unique nutritional needs. Use 23andMe to Get PureGenomics Reports to Optimize Nutrition Using the PureGenomics platform, I work with clients using their genetic...

Yes! Histamine DAO Supplement is Here

Good News! DAO is Again Available to Help Histamine Intolerance Symptoms For the past few months, DAO, the enzyme that clears histamine in the digestive track (and without adequate amounts of it may cause uncomfortable symptoms), could not be found in the US. The shortage really affected the quality of life for people who don’t make enough of their own DAO. Many were so grateful to finally experience the significant relief DAO gave them from symptoms like stomach pain, hives, breathing issues or headaches, after eating high histamine...

Complementary Cancer Treatments – Mushroom & Plant Compounds

Medicinal plants and fungi, and their derivative compounds, are being increasingly recognized as useful complementary treatments for cancer. Promising Adjunct therapy to Traditional Cancer Treatments For example, Turkey Tail (Trametes versicolor) medicinal mushrooms have shown positive results as a complementary cancer treatment. In fact, in Asia, there’s an approved anti-cancer drug (PSK, Krestin) that’s made from an extract of Turkey Tail mushrooms. In addition, a multi-year study of breast cancer patients (NIH funded)...
