Aberrant DNA methylation patterns underlie disease and aging. While some DNA methylation marks are durable and not subject to environmental influence, in many other biological areas, DNA methylation is malleable, which unlocks the opportunity for epigenetic impact—modifying gene expression. In this MAPS talk, Dr. Kara Fitzgerald shares vanguard research and pragmatic clinical insights on the modifiable nutrition-related and lifestyle factors that can either negatively or positively influence the methylome and, therefore, the health and longevity of patients. The full video…

According to the World Health Organization, 350,000,000 people suffer from depression—that is 5% of the world’s population. Betty Murray explains that 47% of our population has a mutation in the 5-MTHFR gene and that this genetic variance contributes to anxiety and depression. She dives into pertinent biochemical pathways and provides insights to improve the recognition of this genetic polymorphism in patients and shares how to overcome its limitations.

More than 300 years after farmers had begun growing hemp as a staple crop in the United States, the endocannabinoid system (ECS) was discovered in the 1990s by researchers studying bioactive compounds in the Cannabis sativa plant. Since that time, cannabinoid receptors have been discovered in many different areas of the human body, such as the brain, digestive tract, and immune system, to name a few. Research continues to reveal diverse physiological functions of the ECS, unique properties of endogenous (endocannabinoids) and…

Emily Rydbom, CN, BCHN, CNP poses the question, “What do we know about the current care for pregnancy nutrition in the US today?” There are three basics we tell pregnant women: “Take your prenatal, don’t gain too much weight, and eat healthy foods.” Rydbom explains that although these recommendations sound like three simple tasks, if pregnant women do not have the resources or the knowledge of what to do, this can be an overwhelming and disempowering conversation. Rydbom shares key clinical…
