What are Nutrigenomics Solutions?
My Nutrigenomics Programs
When we think about nutrigenomics, we often think it is about genetic testing. As a matter of fact, genetics, genomics, and nutrigenomics are words that are used interchangeably. While these genetic terms are related, nutrigenomics differs from genetic testing.
Nutrigenomics is the scientific study of the interaction of nutrition and our genes, especially with regard to optimizing health and overcoming health conditions.
My nutrigenomics solutions bring together your DNA blueprint to create your personalized roadmap to wellness and longevity.

My Nutrigenomics Journey
After a severe illness in my twenties that left one side of my face partially paralyzed, I struggled for years with poor gut health, autoimmune conditions, hormone imbalances, and migraines. I also developed histamine intolerance, which was the cause of many of my symptoms.
Struggling for years to get down to the root cause, I went down many rabbit holes. But when I discovered nutrigenomics, it all became clear what the root cause of my symptoms was and how I could finally resolve my histamine intolerance.
How do I Know It's Right for Me?
- You are struggling with health conditions that there doesn't seem to be any easy answer.

Histamine Intolerance & Your Genes
Histamine intolerance is a complex food intolerance where many of our genes play a role in managing histamine levels. Our genes not only play a role in the degradation (breakdown) of histamine, but our genes control the release of histamine.
If you are struggling with histamine intolerance, your DNA blueprint is the answer to how you can finally resolve histamine intolerance and get back to the foods you love.

My Nutrigenomics Programs
Your nutrigenomics journey begins with a comprehensive DNA test from 3×4 Genetics that I will use to compile your DNA Story. While we wait for your test results, you will be guided through modules that help you better understand what nutrigenomics is and how you get the best benefit from your DNA Story consultation.
With your modules, you will learn how toxins can impact your genes, what oxidative stress is, and how your genes influence your metabolism. And learn about the process known as methylation and how your MTHFR gene can impact this process.
Your DNA Story will give you targeted biomarkers and lab test recommendations based on your genes. Are your genes impacting your ability to achieve your health goals? Included in my nutrigenomics program is your lab review with targeted and focused recommendations on how you can achieve your health goals.
Then, the fun begins with a comprehensive Genesis in Your Kitchen Course! This cooking course teaches you how to nourish and support your genes with modules covering detoxification, methylation, inflammation, and gut health. Learn more about this course!

Frequently Asked Questions
About Genetic Testing
Does the type of genetic testing you are offering tell me if I am going to get a devastating disease and die early?
The type of testing I offer is called genomic testing. This form of testing looks at gene variants called SNPs or “Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms” that respond to diet, lifestyle or exercise modifications. Think of this as the form of genetic testing that provides clues to suggest where a clinician can look for efficiencies or inefficiencies in your biochemistry (operating system) that can be improved upon for better health.
How many times do I have to get a test?
Usually you will only need to have one genetic test in your lifetime. We like to think that your genes are stable and don’t change much over your lifetime. We do know however that traumatic events, debilitating environmental exposures, and periods of rapid growth can influence gene expression or behavior.
Though traumatic events, stress, and environmental exposures often cause epigenetic changes that change how your genes behave, these changes do not happen day after day. For most individuals, one genetic test is good for a lifetime
Is there a difference between tests I can buy at a store or online versus one that is through you?
At-Home tests can fall into two categories: The ones you buy directly, or the ones a practitioner would use. The direct-to-consumer tests are ones you order and decipher yourself.
You could consider them like ready-to-go toolboxes that will essentially tell you, "These are your genes, now go and do this.”
These over-the-counter interpretations will most often produce results that tell you what diet is suitable for you, or which supplement is recommended for you.
However, these tests don’t truly open up your genetics, or really detail the full wiring diagram of who you are.
How can knowing my genetic blueprint help my nutrition...and health?
Your genes are signposts that provide insights into possible nutrition weaknesses that can impact your health. Getting to know your genes is the best way to know which areas you can improve on your nutrition, and, importantly, how.
Think of a genomic test as helping you bypass hours and hours of guesswork, countless tests, and money spent on different supplements and diets that, a lot of times, just don't work because they are neither pinpointing, nor addressing the root cause of the issue.
What are the benefits of a genetic test?
Genetic testing reflects your unique blueprint. It's the plan of how YOU are built! Your blueprint provides the best insights into YOU, and removes the guesswork out of "What's wrong with me." Genetic testing provides answers to questions you may have about your health.
Additionally, detailed explanations and insights into health trends in your family and whether they apply to you. Imagine knowing ahead of time that you share the same potential for hypertension, but you are in a position to “head if off at the pass!” That is a powerful position to be in.
Do genetic reports tell me what supplements i should take?
Genetic reports do not directly tell us "you have this gene, therefore you need to do that." And this is why working with a genetic expert comes into play. Clinically relevant reports (AKA those that don’t get sold via the Internet or at the local store) are not designed to be turnkey solutions. These types of reports often look at one gene at a time and suggest a supplement based on a gene result. We call this line-item genetics!
