Fine-Tuning Patient Wellness Through Epigenetics and Methylation

Kara Fitzgerald, ND, IFMCP; Physician, Clinic Director; Faculty Member, Institute for Functional Medicine


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 for the preview above is available for practitioners only.
