UNDERSTANDING GENETICS FOR IMPROVING HEALTH OUTCOMES
This course is intended to provide the tools that Holistic Nutritionists can use to deliver personalized healthcare to their clients, catered to the genetic makeup of the client. Genetics plays a very robust role in nutrition, detoxification, weight loss and overall health and wellness. Genetics can be used not only to improve the health of the clients but also to develop DNA based nutritional plans that can potentially prevent development of chronic diseases. Course participants will gain knowledge on how genetic information can be used to deliver nutritional plans, weight loss strategies, detoxification plans, hormonal balance plans along with nutritional plans to prevent development of chronic disease such as diabetes and cardiovascular diseases. The course will be divided into six modules, beginning with introduction to human genetics and subsequently covering genetics of nutritional deficiencies, food intolerances, eating behavior, weight loss, detoxification pathways, hormone metabolism, epigenetics and chronic metabolic disorders.
IHN has partnered with Anantlife Canada Inc., a leader in clinical grade genetic testing for healthcare providers all over the world, to offer a Certified Genetic Testing Provider Certificate upon successful completion of the course, in addition to IHN’s Certificate of Completion. This course will highlight implications of genetic testing that apply specifically to nutritional practitioners and provide information on common scenarios to prepare them to effectively incorporate genetic testing into practice. Successful completion of the course implies that the candidates have received the education and training to not only understand genetic concepts pertaining to diet, nutrition, detoxification, fitness, hormonal health and metabolic disorders but have also been trained on interpretation of the genetic testing reports along with development of a DNA based health plan for better health outcomes.
