Learn how gene pathways work in a functional manner to impact 6 important systems of the body:
- Hormones: Fat loss, Muscle development, Acne, Hair, Female Hormone Health, Libido
- Cardiovascular Health: Cholesterol, Diabetes, Stroke, Hypertension
- Diet & Nutrition: Personal diet, Sensitivities, Scheduling, Satisfaction, Eating Behaviors
- Mood & Behavior: Addiction, Depression, Anxiety, Stress, PTSD, Focus, Irritability
- Inflammation: Immunity, Detox, Mitochondrial Health, Aging, Methylation
- Sleep: Stress, Pleasure, Food, Blue Light, Circadian Rhythm
You will understand how genes influence these systems, what sort of health concerns are impacted by these genes, and what recommendations, therapies, and solutions can improve these health concerns. You will be presented with numerous real-life case studies as well as the steps taken to resolve the problems and health concerns within these case studies.
"Genes encode the functions required for your cells, and for you as a whole, to thrive. To intelligently interpret genes, their individual contributions must be understood in the context of the bigger picture – in the context of the myriad of cellular functions required for optimal health.
Single genes do not function in a void, but rather, in cascades of beautifully coordinated sets – multiple genes working together to facilitate the cellular functions in question.
Studying single genes without appreciating how they interact with one another is both incomplete, and often misleading. Functional Genomics is the study of genes as they were meant to be studied, capturing how they work together and how they are influenced by lifestyle, nutrition and environmental choices and challenges.
Functional genomics captures the true treasure trove of knowledge embedded in your genomic make-up and facilitates a nuanced, individualized and actionable approach to optimal health – an actionable approach for you to thrive. "
