    #118 How Genetics & Epigenetics Affect Hormone Health with Emma Beswick

    EMMA BESWICK 
    Emma Beswick is a nutritional therapist and founder of Lifecode Gx®, the leading nutrigenomics testing, analysis and training provider. She is passionate about the power of nutrigenomics to enable personalisation of nutrition and lifestyle to empower individuals to optimise their health. Emma’s focus is on identifying and understanding common genetic variants that can be adjusted, compensated or exploited through diet and lifestyle. Although we can’t change our genetic code, we can change their (our) environment, to benefit our physical, mental and spiritual health. 
    Emma is a member of the International Society of Nutrigenetics/ Nutrigenomics (ISSN), Institute of Functional Medicine (IFM) and a regular speaker, presenter and participant at conferences on nutrition, genomics, genetics and epigenetics. She is also the author and presenter of Lifecode Gx’s popular Nutrigenomics In Practice training programme. 
     
    We discuss:
    Definitions of the terms genetics, epigenetic, homo vs hetrozygous and ‘SNP’
    Factors that can affect genetics positively/negatively
    Pros and cons of genetic testing & mutations/SNPs
    Common SNPs in relation to fertility/hormone health including MTHFR, COMT, SULT, VDR & CYP

    #115 Functional Lab Tests for 'Wholistic' Hormonal Health with Jenn Malecha

    JENN MALECHA
    Jenn Malecha supports busy, health-mind professionals in taking back control of their health by giving them access to the right lab tests and resources so they can find the missing pieces of their health puzzle, actually fix what is wrong and get back to feeling like themselves again.
    Using over a decade of personal training experience, training in Functional Diagnostic Nutrition and Transformational Coaching, she creates personalized health-rebuilding programs for clients that are realistic and sustainable for long-lasting results, and that empower clients to be the boss of their own health.
    If you’re ready to look at the “big picture” of your health (not just one disconnected piece at a time), to embrace healthy as a way of being, and to stop settling for anything less than you deserve when it comes to your health and happiness then Jenn is exactly who you've been looking for!
     
    We discuss:
    Jenn’s personal health journey & struggles with hormonal imbalances
    Her favourite functional lab tests & how they could benefit you
    Why macro balancing, gentle exercise, sleep & slowing down are KEY for hormone health
    Thyroid testing & why just checking ‘TSH’ isn’t enough

Lizzie Learns to Love Her Body ,

Life Changing!!!

I feel so blessed to have found this podcast!
I have recently started looking into “this stuff” being our menstrual cycle which is such an intimate recurring cycle in every woman’s life and yet I know so little about it and feel disconnected.

Everything you talked about resonates with me!

I’m so excited to listen to more of your podcasts and plan to implement little by little some strategies you mentioned.

I’m feeling more energized today and guess what?! It’s full moon tomorrow!!! It just makes sense and I will be able to feel a lot better once my hormones are in harmony.

Thanks again! 👏🏻💃🏼🙌🏻
