The Power of Nutrigenomics – A New Era in Precision and Personalized Wellness

We have finally been able to put the science to the idea that we’re all different. We respond in a different way to the environment, to diet, to trying to lose weight, to exercise training. But we never really understood the science behind it. Genetics gives us that information. Nutrigenomics is the study of gene behavior that is driven by diet, lifestyle, environment, drugs, pharmaceuticals, stress. Nutrigenomic education, accreditation, certification is becoming more accepted. Dr. Karen explains Nutrigenomics in an easy-to-understand way, and you will walk away realizing you have the ability to reshape your health and well-being!

Depression, Inflammation, Leaky Gut and the Microbiome: New Directions in Nursing

Depression results in more absenteeism than almost any other physical disorder and costs employers more than US$51 billion per year in absenteeism and lost productivity, not including high medical and pharmaceutical bills. Depression in children is the greatest form of disability, and prescription numbers are growing. While many think of their brain as the organ in charge of their mental health, your gut may actually play a far more significant role. Our immune systems are largely housed in the gut, and the interplay between the gut and the brain is a complex and profoundly important relationship. It is time to expand our horizons about mental health, and health promotion professionals are perfectly positioned to do this.

Microbiome Medicine: The Next Revolution in Modern Wellness

The microbiome is the community of trillions of bacteria that live in your digestive tract and elsewhere throughout your body. Collectively weighing about three pounds — the same weight as our brain — these bacteria outnumber our human cells by a factor of about 10 to 1. Not only do our bacteria outnumber us, but their genes also outnumber our genes — by a factor of 150 to 1. In many ways, their genes have more of an influence over our day-to-day life than our own genes do. When your microbiome is balanced, you have good digestion, clear thinking, a balanced mood, and glowing overall health. When your microbiome goes out of balance, however, you risk such symptoms as brain fog, depression, anxiety, bad skin, insomnia, obesity, diabetes, and cancer.
