Nutrigenetics: personalised nutrition plan
Trying to stay healthy and live longer, we pay more and more attention to what we eat. My husband is vegetarian with a high consumption of carbohydrates. I am avoiding carbohydrates but have meat occasionally. Both of us do not drink milk. We do what seems to works for us. However, I am becoming more aware that science has moved on and we can do better than guessing to understand our nutritional needs.
I started to read about nutrigenetics that explore interactions of our inherited genome and nutrition.
A common view on the use of genetically informed nutrition practice is that it is still too complex, insufficiently understood and several decades away from becoming a reality. The simple answer to this opinion is that nutrigenetics can now assist health optimisation.
The test and analysis can enable us to understand more about our bodies (e.g. how we are predicted to process vitamins or our risk of lactose intolerance); asses the risk of certain health conditions such as Type 2 diabetes and some cancers; tell us about our weight predisposition, and how we are more likely to respond to exercise and types of training, as well as if we are a carrier for over certain health conditions (such as cystic fibrosis).
If you are interested to learn more about how the science advanced and how you can make personalised nutritional choices, we offer an amazing opportunity on October 10, Thursday, at 10:30 at 3 House Club to meet Dr. Harriet Holme, founder of Healthy Eating Dr (healthyeatingdr.com) who will give a free talk on nutrition and Nutrigenetics.
Dr Harriet Holme has a PhD in genetics from University College London, studied medicine at University of Cambridge and holds a postgraduate Membership of the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health. On top of that Harriet has an accreditation for Applied Human Nutrition from The University of Cambridge.
