What is Nutrigenomics?

In the simplest of terms, nutrigenomics is the study and branch of genetic research of how foods affect our genes and how, in return, genetic variations affect the way we react to nutrients in foods. These genes instruct your amino acid arrangements for proteins that create your traits.

Nutrigenomics is a big word and it has a big impact.  I was introduced to nutrigenomics when I was sick and wanted to change.   At the time I was struggling with a lot of health issues and in order to cope, I swept the hardest parts of my life under the rug. Essentially, I was resigned to getting sicker. My body hurt and my gut health was a mess soo I was curious to see how it could help me.

You are what you eat

You may have heard this term,  its been around as long as I have, it really is true today. With the growing science in this field, we can understand better how those foods influenced our health and our relation to obesity and chronic health issues. You may have struggled with eating well but not seeing the results you wanted or following every fad diet that you ultimately fail.


Will my health pass to my kids

Do you have a genetic predisposition to a particular disease? Does that mean your children will suffer? Science is learning that just like unhealthy foods can trigger a genetic response to disease it can also do the opposite, a healthy lifestyle can pass on healthy genes and the potential not to trigger a genetic anomaly. We see this in obesity and type 2 diabetics. As science emerges we will learn more about how a healthy diet today can create healthier children.


Nutrigenomic testing 

Genetic testing evaluates different genetic markers to generate a comprehensive report of findings along with a set of recommendations to help an individual achieve their desired level of fitness?  These results provide insight into your genetic predisposition for exercise, determine the perfect ratio of carbs, proteins, and fats for your body, and more.  Interestingly, you may learn that you can tolerate foods that others can not. This may help you feel better and fully fed so you can hit your personal goals.



How can I get started today 

Testing may not be in your budget but we can get started by finding the foods that work for you.

1. Eat Real Food– You are what you eat. Food and nutrition are important  as both can influence the body and mind

2. Stress can activate changes. Everybody deals with stress, and that can have an impact on our health and genes.

3. An active lifestyle will awaken the best genes.

4. Change your environment. examples are EMF, Blue light

5,.Consume nutrigenomic supplements

When we take control of our health outcomes we can live our best life and potentially pass this onto our children and grandchildren, now that is making a difference in the lives of your family.

I am passionate about helping regular people find their “It Factor” using proven modern marketing stratigies that will set you up for success.

For too long I was ashamed of many aspects of my life. I didn’t know my “It Factor”, I was hung up on old patterns, and giving up on things ever improving for me. I was out there networking to grow my business – and didn’t realize I was hiding parts of my story under the rug and not sharing my gifts. I was using old copy past, make a list, call all my friends as a stratigies and never finding my voice or success in my business.

I didn’t realize that by glossing over my truth and my story, I was preventing progress in my life both personally and professionally. I was dealing with chronic health issues, pain from the past, and not seeing the success I wanted- and often times was asking myself how can I use my story to help others overcome as I did and I have found a solution!

I am now looking to grow my network and an online community sharing proven modern marketing stratigies and how I found my voice. I can help educate you on the road map I am using today, help network marketers with our brand partner to ditch the sameness, ditch the copy paste and ditch the comparitis.

I love swapping stories and potential collaboration with you if you are:

◆ self-motivated and capable of doing more in your life but unsure of next steps.
◆ considering a more purposeful step in their career, but feeling stuck because of current obligations (mortgage, kids, etc.).
◆ reassessing your professional goals and financial situation after overcoming a setback, failed business stratigies. and looking to find your voice and brand.
◆ feel like you are working hard in a dead end direction – and ready to learn about new opportunities that would better fit your lifestyle, goals, or personality.

Let’s find time to chat and have meaningful conversation. Perhaps we can be mutually beneficial for one another’s dreams and goals.
