Session #1 of 9 in the Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms in Clinical Practice Mentorship Series
November 6, 2014
This session is a deep dive into the use of snps testing and the biochemical pathways where clinically-relevant snps are found. it's implications in the methylation and sulfation pathway function in clinical practice: including estrogen metabolism and cancer risk and neurotransmitter metabolism with relevant mental health conditions. The use of appropriately-dosed nutrient supplementation with methylated folate and methylcobalamin as well as the necessary supportive co-factors is discussed at length here.
