What is Functional Nutrition?

Functional nutrition uses cutting-edge diagnostic testing and assessment to help you identify the root cause of symptoms so you can get well and stay well, naturally!

Functional nutrition not only aids in identifying the root cause of symptoms or imbalance through assessment and diagnostic testing, but also utilizes the cutting-edge science of epigenetics. A segment of epigenetics, clinical nutrigenomics, is currently providing evidence as to the influence diet and lifestyle can have on genetic expression (turning genes on or off). What does this mean?  It means you have control over your genetic predispostions, and your general health, overall.

Optimize Your DNA


Clinical nutrigenomics is the science of how different foods interact with specific genes to increase the risk of common chronic diseases.

Genetic testing

  • Identify genetic polymorphisms (genetic variants), including MTHFR (methylation)
  • Discover how diet, lifestyle and environmental changes can affect these variants

Methylation is a complex and important enzymatic process. Fifty percent of the population may have a genetic mutation or variation in this function. Methylation problems have been implicated in many chronic diseases, including cancers; cognitive, respiratory, cardiovascular, reproductive, and autoimmune dysfunction; and neurobehavioral illnesses such as autism spectrum disorder, ADD and ADHD.

All genetic testing is run through 23andMe, a personalized service providing information and tools to learn about and explore your DNA.

* 23andMe genetic test kit fees are separate and payable directly to the lab.
