Genova Diagnostics provides us with excellent education about the value of the tests that they run. The health practitioners who are associated with Genova are very knowledgeable and are able to share a lot of important information.
Dr. Lahnore Powel N.D. talks about Genova Diagnostics Lab’s case evaluation and discussion of GI Effects Stool Profile. She graduated from South West College as well as a masters degree in public health. She joined Genova about a year ago.
Dr. Susan Blum talks about you how to use Genova’s NutrEval nutritional testing in her presentation called, Immune Health and Nutritional Testing. She talks about how to find potential triggers, identify key nutritional deficiencies, as well as how to provide specific treatments. NutriEval can be evaluated using a simple home urine test.
Dr. Marion Owen M.D. explains how nutritional status and the ability to adequately detoxify are very important components in understanding how to evaluate and support hormone levels. It is important to realize that the body relies on key nutrients and pathways to maintain hormone balance.
She explains how oxidative stress and impaired methylation are significant pathways that can help regulate hormones. A comprehensive nutrition assessment and targeted therapeutic interventions can help support these and other essential pathways.reviews
In this webinar you will learn:
– The latest scientific understanding of how nutritional status plays a role in hormone balance
– What the effective use of nutritional testing is to identify key nutritional imbalances relating to hormone function
– Ways to integrate the use of nutritional testing to provide better clinical outcomes for hormone balancing and hormone replacement
Dr. Deanna Minich is teacher who has been an internationally-recognized. She is also an author, scientist, speaker, and artist. She actually has more than 20 years of experience in the fields of nutrition and functional medicine, including clinical practice, research, product formulation, writing, and education. Dr. Deanna Minich’s special interest is teaching what is refers to as a ‘whole-self’ approach to nourishment and bridging the gaps between science, spirituality, and art in medicine.
Her presentation is called, ‘Nutrigenomics in Clinical Practice – Genes, Food, and Specialty Diagnostics”.
The human genome is made up of about 3 billion base pairs of DNA. Lots of people mistakenly think that the presence of a certain gene or single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) means they are destined to develop the associated disease.
Now we know that most genes have flexible expressions and complex interactions among multiple genes and that the environment affects gene expression.
These interactions are what is called epigenetic influences – include diet, chemical exposure, stress response, and the presence of other SNPs.
This presentation will focus on the understanding of genetic predispositions and personalized nutritional needs.
The focus of Dr Minich’s presentation is on:
– helping to understand what nutrigenomics is
– how to combine the understanding of basic genetics with nutrition
– how to apply nutrigenomics through various examples
– give information about specialty lab testing for specific SNPs
Presented by Stephen Goldman, DC and Christine Stubbe, ND
Stephen Goldman, DC, has a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Massachusetts. He also received a Doctorate of Chiropractic from Cleveland Chiropractic College, where he also served as a member of the faculty. For 25 years he had a family practice in Los Angeles and worked mainly with athletes and patients who were interested in optimizing their optimal health, Dr. Goldman relocated to Asheville and joined the Medical Education team at Genova Diagnostics.
He talks about Small intestine bacterial overgrowth, or SIBO, that is a common gastrointestinal disorder that is often the reason underlying chronic gastrointestinal symptoms like maldigestion and malabsorption. This includes bloating, gas, diarrhea, irregularity and abdominal pain.
The SIBO test helps in identifying a possible cause of IBS. Studies have suggested that as many as 50-75% of people who suffer with IBS have SIBO, as shown by hydrogen breath test.
In this webinar, Dr. Goldman talks about the factors that contribute to SIBO. Breath testing is a simple, non-invasive detection method for SIBO. Severeal patterns are analyzed. Interventions including diet, digestive support, probiotics and antimicrobials are spoken about.
– How to identify SIBO
– How to utilize testing to analyze SIBO breath test patterns
– Interventions used to treat SIBO
