Dr. Bernarda Zenker presented research on methylation genetics and provided us an into to topics such as micronutrients for therapeutic benefit and understanding SNPs. Dr. Zenker provides great visuals of the methylation pathways and understanding exactly how our environment interacts with our bodies.

We have found that “genetics are the foundational mechanism in health and disease,” says Dr. Zenker. If we know our mutations many of our problems can be bypassed. Methylation has been a broad topic since the human genome was sequenced and released in the late 1990’s and early 2000’s. The single most important bit of information regarding your health to know where the blockage of the genetic mutation is so that you can circumvent that mutation.

Dr Zenker says, “Getting a handle on our genetics is the first step toward greater health and wellness.”
