Epigenetics is the ability to turn genes on and off. Knowing a patient's genetic profile enables the practitioner to guide the patient in lifestyle and nutrition choices for both disease prevention and optimal health. This workshop will provide an overview of methylation and its significance in the metabolic pathway. You will discover the function of core SNP's (single-nucleotide polymorphism) and their co-factors. Core patterns will be described and treatment options presented to optimize underlying genetic vulnerabilities. You will begin to recognize common patient archetypes including methyl craver, methyl sensitive, sulfite sensitive and vascular sensitive. Case studies will demonstrate how to integrate SNP pattern solutions in to a wholistic treatment plan.
