The emerging science of Nutrigenomics

Weight loss is daunting for many people. Know your enemy through science and the future of medicine – genomics!

Is your struggle due to your genes? What is your thyroid up to or is a low iodine level making your thyroid under functioning thus affecting your metabolism by making it sluggish and fat-gaining? 

Do you have the ‘Fatso’ or FTO gene? You may also have the emotional eating genes called the DRD2 or the OPRM1 genes or perhaps the fat buster gene ADIPOQ to the tubby tummy gene called the UCP2 gene. Some people unfortunately have the ‘fat-grabber’ gene called the FABP2 gene which, to your downfall, increases the absorption and processing of dietary fats and deposits these fats around your abdomen.

There are other genes that may put the brakes on fat loss through exercise or act as fat generators or perhaps it is your metabolism that you have suspected as being the problem all along. 

These genes may have been the culprits in your life but if you have any of these genetic variants then don't just blame them, get even with them, by having this knowledge and show them who is the boss through scientific guidance which will help you work around them.

This program that I have developed is not a simplistic one-size-fits-all approach, but targeted to you, the individual.

It is also a medical approach where underlying conditions such as Polycystic Ovarian Disease (PCOS), Insulin Resistance, Hormone dysfunctions and more serious medical problems need to be considered. This can only be done by a highly qualified medical practitioner.

This approach is for an individual who wants a big-picture assessment of their health risks by someone with medical qualifications from a world renowned medical school who has the skills and experience to know what is and is not significant in a medical sense.
