Nutrigenomics Miniseries

What insight can a nutrigenomics report provide in approximately 15-minutes?

The purpose of nutrigenomics is to guide more personalized nutritional support. SNPs can tell us where to focus our clinical evaluation. Is the patient drinking too much caffeine? Eating too much fat? What nutrients should I test for? What kind of exercise is best for the patient? These minisodes provide a SNP peak into the nutrigenomics case studies submitted by providers for our Nutrigenomics Case Study Events.

Approaching Anorexia Nervosa solely as a psychological disorder does not account for the brain’s response to a shortage of essential nutrients. Nutritional deficiencies arising from prolonged self-starvation profoundly disrupt normal brain function, and psychological interventions alone are often not sufficient for patients whose brain and neurotransmitter functioning is sub-optimal.

Dr. James Greenblatt talks with us about advancing care for Anorexia Nervosa for the first time in over 25-years.
