This course provides practitioners with in-depth training about Nutritional Genomics. If you are a professional that will make nutritional recommendations to clients, it is critical to understand the relationships between nutrients and genes in order to compile effective personalized nutritional programmes.
Recently, the definition of Nutritional Genomics has been broadened to encompass nutritional factors that protect the genome from damage. Nutrigenetics studies the presence of a particular gene variant that, in most cases, predicts a predisposition to a particular disease process which may be prevented through an interplay of environmental and behavioural factors such as a personalized nutrition. Nutrigenomics refers to the study of the effects of specific nutrients or nutraceuticals on the expression of an individual’s genetic makeup.
By the end of this course, you will be able to:
This course consists of five modules:
In this module, we look at the benefits to you and the client when doing genetic testing for weight management. It includes factors during weight loss, not just what your client consumes. Several “obesity” genes are discussed including LEPR, FTO, ADRB2 and MC4R as well as exercise responsiveness. This module concludes with a short case study.
Recommendations for personalized nutrition influenced by genetic results are demonstrated in Module 2. Using the background of previous studies on nutrigenetics and macronutrients, you will understand how to use genetic results to predict the best type of diet for your client.
Take a closer look at how genetic variations should be used to determine your patients’ optimal micronutrient requirements (versus the RDA recommendations). Nutrient recommendations based on genetics for the following essential nutrients are reviewed: magnesium, selenium, vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin D, calcium, iron and fibre. Additionally, the application of genetic variations as biomarkers for gluten, lactose and caffeine sensitivities are explained.
The psychology around eating and factors that influence eating habits are, to a great extent, determined by genetics. In this module, you will start to understand the genes that have a direct impact on eating patterns and behaviours. Some people have genetic variations that particularly affect satiety and hunger. Taste preferences for fats, sweet tastes or bitter flavours are substantially affected by genetic variations. Therefore, this influences the behaviour and compliance of your patients, and subsequently the advice and recommendations you need to provide. Saturated fat sensitivity based on genetic variations is also covered in this module which is of particular importance to clients considering a Banting-type diet.
The GENEWELL™ online course for health and wellbeing focuses on the application of precision medicine and nutrigenomics for the overall health of anyone.
This course will enable you to understand the information provided by genetic tests regarding genetic variants that are linked to certain diseases and to translate this into nutritional recommendations for your patients.
Additionally, this course provides insights on a person’s distinguishing health traits, what those traits mean and how you can utilise them to help your clients reach optimal health. You will learn how to interpret the information about the specific genetics of each of your clients in order to customize a healthcare program, to reduce certain risks and possibly prevent certain conditions in order to improve their overall health.
Just like all of the other courses, the teaching is provided on an online platform, flexible and accessible from your home where you can watch the audio-visual presentations of the modules according to what your schedules permits.

When it comes to prescribing drugs and evaluating patients for potential drug interactions, pharmacogenetic testing is no longer a future consideration. It is here and it is here to stay.
Pharmacogenetic testing is recommended to aid physicians in determining the most appropriate medication and the right dosages to avoid adverse drug reactions and interactions.
Cytochrome P450 (CYP) enzymes are responsible for the metabolism of approximately 75% of all drugs. Variations in CYP genes that code for CYP enzymes can predict how a person will metabolize specific drugs. This course describes pharmacogenetics of CYPs and models for clinical implementation. Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:
Module 1: Principles and Concepts of Pharmacogenomics
Module 2: Clinical Application of Pharmacogenomics
The WHO (World Health Organisation) estimates that 50% of the world’s population suffer from food intolerances, many of which are food related. Common everyday problems like migraines, aching joints, fatigue, gastrointestinal disorders, eczema, hyperactivity, ADD, ADHD, asthma, and even obesity have been linked to food sensitivity and chronic activation of the immune system. The OptiWay courses will enable you to become skilful at recognising the signs and symptoms of food intolerances and how to manage them. By eliminating the guesswork involved with identifying the best repertoire of foods / nutrients to suggest, the test offered by OptiWay will support you and strengthen your ability to provide effective therapies to your patients.
Who is this course for?
This course is for anyone who would like to understand food intolerances. However, a basic understanding of the immune system is an advantage.
The course content is delivered via a series of video presentations supported by references to resource documents. Each course will take approximately one hour to complete.
Module 1 – All about Food Intolerances
– removal of a trigger response
– replace & rotate
– repair & restore of optimal status
– rebalance – the total body burden toxins (toxic load)
Module 2 – All about OptiWay (not accredited for CPD points)
Module 2 is a compulsory module and covers the operational and practical side of Optiway. From the ordering of the test kits to the interpretation of the results. This section includes a step-by-step plan to interpret the results for the best health outcomes for patients, as well as where to find additional resources and support.
Our easy to learn modules also include:
Our GENESPORT™ course provides the newest information regarding genetics and physical activity including data from the latest published papers, research and studies in a simple but comprehensive way. You will discover how understanding your client’s gene results can help optimize their workouts with actionable recommendations.
This course is particularly aimed at professionals in sports and physical education such as biokineticists, personal trainers, physiotherapists, dietitians, nutritionists, coaches of different sports, sports doctors and athletes.
In this course, you will have access to over eight hours of world-class, referenced training about the physiology and practical applications of different genes. You will learn to assess genetic test results and how to apply the findings to daily nutrition and training regimes to optimize physical activity.
The modules included in this course cover genetic predisposition factors for power and endurance sports. An overview of the recovery process, the genetic factors involved in oxidative stress, inflammation, muscle anatomy, energy sources during exercise, lactate threshold, injury prevention and recovery after intense exercise are covered. A series of exercises that clinicians may use as examples to give to their clients based on their genetic results is also included. Moreover, it will explain how, through the nutrigenomics for sport, you can guide your clients to achieve their maximum athletic performance.
The WHO (World Health Organisation) defines infertility as, “The failure to achieve a clinical pregnancy after 12 months or more of regular unprotected sexual intercourse.” It is a lot more common than you may at first expect, with 1 in 6 couples struggling to conceive. Whose to blame? 1/3 of infertility cases can be linked to the male. 1/3 to the female. 1/3 to both parties.
It is estimated that approximately 50% of infertility cases are caused by genetic issues.
Fertility has always been an area that many practitioners fear to tread, believing that it is an area outside their scope of practice. This Supreme Fertility course will provide you with a background into the potential causes of infertility and provide you with an affordable solution to offer your patients.
This course is designed for practitioners interested in learning more about fertility and finding out how it can add value to their service offerings.
