The Nutrition Genome Nutrigenomic and Epigenetic Training Program
Our free healthcare practitioner training program includes 12 modules designed to empower your clinical application of nutrigenomics and epigenetics. The training modules can be completed on your own time.
Based off of Nutrition Genome’s DNA health testing services, our practitioner training provides in depth analysis of Digestion, Methylation, Hormones, Neurotransmitters & Mental Health, Inflammation & Antioxidant Protection, Detoxification, DNA Protection / Damage / Repair, Cardiovascular Health & Athletic Performance, Breast Health, Autoimmune Disorders, Infertility, and Bone Health.
Join a thriving global community of practitioners as we debut new research and continue to innovate in the rapidly advancing field of nutrigenomics.

Nutrigenomic Training Summary
Learn about macronutrient intake, clinical connection to FUT2 and diversified plant intake, folate levels, choline requirements, pregnancy, mood, and mental health, and clinical connection to Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease.
Review the role of MTHFR, PEMT, MTR, MTRR, CBS and TCN2 in the Methylation Cycle. Learn how folate, B2, B6, B12, choline, and betaine intake ranges based on genetic variants.
Hormones and Detoxification
Understanding gene function can help balance hormones and create an efficient detoxification system. We’ll analyze DI01, DI02, Thyroid health, and the clinical connection ot estrogen metabolism gene variants.
Breast Health and Infertility
We’ll review genetic susceptibilities to infertility, breast cancer prevention strategies, and genetic susceptibilities to autoimmune disorders.
Neurotransmitters & Mental Health
We’ll review emotional epigenomics and serotonin levels, the affects of gene function on dopamine and adrenaline levels, GAD1 gene analysis for glutamate and GABA, glutamate levels and genes BDNF and SLC17A7, and review the APOE gene.
Inflammation and Longevity
We’ll review nitric oxide genes and inflammatory disorders, SOD2, SOD3, Catalase, clinical connection to the antioxidant genes and chemotherapy, glutathione, eye disorders, and estrogen and testosterone’s influence on antioxidant status.
DNA Protection, Damage and Repair
We’ll review the genes ATM, ERS2, and Tp53 for pancreatic, breast, prostate, and skin health. We’ll also analyze MLH1 and GATA3 for colon health.
Cardio and Athletic Performance
Gain a competitive edge through understanding caffeine metabolism, blood clots, triglycerides, stress, muscle recovery, injury prevention, VO2 max, required plant-intake for heart health and more.
Practitioner Referral Program
We’re excited to offer you the opportunity to be featured on our website as a Nutrition Genome recommended practitioner!
Our recommended practitioners are featured on our ‘Find a practitioner’ page on our website. This referral program has proved highly beneficial to our customers in finding further guidance to optimize their results and for our practitioners listed to receive new clients to their practice without any outreach needed on their part.
We receive numerous emails daily from our customers looking for a local practitioner to interpret their Nutrition Genome results, and we are highly selective with our referral process to ensure that our customers get the best from their report. For a one time fee of $249 (and a successful pass completion of our 12 training modules) we will add you to our practitioner database for the potential of immediate customer referral.
The Nutrition Genome Report is unique and requires a deeper understanding of nutrigenomics and epigenomics to connect the dots from the results. Our training increases your genetic knowledge, shows you how to combine genes, and how to apply the results to a patient. This increases the probability of a successful consultation for both the practitioner and the patient.
In order to be a recommended practitioner, we require that you pass our 11 module exam at an 85% pass rate or higher. This will allow you to feel confident with the clinical application of our report, and it will boost your knowledge of this amazing growing field of nutrigenomics and epigenomics to enhance your practice.
We couldn’t be more excited to welcome you into the Nutrition Genome network of practitioners, and we really look forward to a united effort in making this world a healthier, happier place!
