Event description

Description

The seminar is designed for healthcare professionals to learn more about the genes, variants and nutrient interactions that impact the nervous system and to gain the confidence to use this knowledge in clinical practice.



AGENDA

1. Introduction - Genetics, Epigenetics and Personalised Health

Foundational principals of nutrigenomics in a functional medicine context. Chromosomes, genes and variants. Genetic susceptibilities and resiliance. How nutrients impact gene expression and how genes impact nutrient metabolism.

2. Nervous system introduction

Key components of the nervous system - neurotransmitters, HPA and interactions with other systems. What can go wrong - symptoms and consequences of nervous system imbalance

3. Nervous System Nutrigenomics - genes, variants and nutrient interactions -

The neurotransmitter lifecycyle including synthesis, transport, messaging, re-uptake and deactivation.

The genes and enzymes affecting Dopamine, Adrenalin, Noradrenalin, Histamine, Serotonin, Melatonin, Glutamate, Gaba and Acetylcholine

Supporting and interacting processes including methylation, inflammation, stress, stimulants, sleep, oxidative stress

Key nutrients and cofactors including amino acids and essential vitamins and minerals

4. Genotype testing and analysis in practice - *case studies - Hands on session to equip practitioners to use nutrigenomics in practice. Linking genetic variants to relevant functional tests and personalised naturopathic nutrition plans.

6. Nutrigenomics resources and support - What next? Websites, specialist groups and meetups, tools and analysis, how to keep up with the latest research.
