patient geneticsGenetics Susceptibility and Targeted Interventions for Genetic Integrity 

presented by Chris Meletis, ND

Individual patient care can be enhanced by exploring patient genetics and unique individualized genetic expression. Discussion topics during this recorded presentation include the growingly appreciated MTHF-Reductase gene that contributes to depression, anxiety, bi-polar and schizophrenia; as well as cardiac disease, neural tube defects and several disease risk factors.  Telomere protection and cellular aging that contrasts biological vs. chronological age is also explored. Additional focus is spent on nutritional risk factors for disease propensity, drug tolerance and the propagation of disease.  Participating clinicians gain the knowledge necessary to test and treat nutritional unique patient biochemistry.
