Become an Epigenetic Nutritionist
How do you go from being a good nutritionist to becoming a great one - with a full schedule?
Mastering general nutritional science is no longer enough. The genetic age is here, and patients know it.
Nutrigenomics applies genetics to nutrition and enables you to individualize diet recommendations. You go from general platitudes about “eating healthy” to “Your genetic challenges are utilizing vitamin A, B12, choline, and iron.”
Fortunately, the tools for revolutionizing your practice are available. Genetic Health Reports (aka Nutrigenomic reports) turn raw genetic data into useful, understandable treatment plans.
This presentation shows you how to choose the best Genetic Health Report and how to efficiently and effectively integrate that information into your practice. No, you don’t need to become a genetics expert. A good report organizes and explains the genetic data and guides you in applying it to your patient. Once you know nutrigenomics, patients will seek you out.
Tom Ballard, RN, ND, graduated from Bastyr University in 1982 and is honored to have been the first valedictorian. He ran a successful science-based practice in Seattle for 35 years before closing it to devote full time to writing, teaching, and spreading the word about genetic medicine. “The human genome project validated natural medicine. It proved that we are a 50/50 balance of genetic Nature and lifestyle Nurturing.” Dr. Ballard is the author of Genetic Health Reports, Genetic Wellness, and Nutrition-1-2-3, as well as numerous articles, and several novels. He is the owner of the on-line genetic service, Natural DNA Solutions (www.NaturalDNASolutions.com)
