Diet, DNA and the Power Of Nutrigenomics
Angela Heap Dip Nut (CNM), Fertile Ground Nutrition Emma Beswick Dip Nut (CNM), Lifecode Gx Founder
A presentation on why and how to use DNA testing in practice, including considerations when choosing a test; and how to analyse and interpret results - starting with single genes and SNPs that affect specific food and micronutrients and quickly building up to more complex, and interesting, biochemical pathway analysis.
We will discuss the need to join the dots and need to consider the interconnectedness of genes with other genes, cofactors and inhibitors across systems. Angela will present the key genes and variants impacting methylation, neurotransmitter levels, and steroid hormone pathways and how DNA and functional testing can help inform nutritional therapy protocols to achieve and support hormone balance, fertility and pregnancy.
Angela Heap is an experienced nutritionist focusing on hormones, fertility & pregnancy, and is skilled in the use of genetic & functional testing to support personalised nutrition and lifestyle programmes.
