Nathalie is certified as a Nutrigenetic Counsellor (NgC) with BANT and has passed competency assessments following full NTEC approved training 

Advancing knowledge in nutrigenetics and nutrigenomics heralds a new era in the contribution of personal nutrition advice to promote and maintain optimal health through all life stages, and for longevity. The new paradigm of personalised nutrition demands wider competencies and an increased capability from nutritional therapists to encompass areas of genetics and genomics, as well as an appreciation of the ethical considerations surrounding the use of genetic information.

What is a Nutrigenetic Counsellor?

Professional dietary and nutritional advice tailored to individual genotype – with considerations of complex interactions between diet, nutrition and other lifestyle practices, as well as age, gender and current health status – may be termed ‘Nutrigenetic Counselling’.

 

Nutritional Therapists wishing to incorporate Nutrigenetic Counselling into their practice need to assimilate sound knowledge, skills and training. Core to this knowledge is ‘genetic literacy’. Members of the public wishing to benefit from nutrigenetic counselling can then be assured of appropriate standards of quality assurance.

Interested in your own Nutrigenetic profile?

Nathalie continues to research and train in nutrigenomics and has over over 5 years of experience in this field.   She originally trained with Genesnippers and completed the Nutrigenomics - A Functional Medicine Approach to Genetics course with Anne Pemberton - a highly respected Nutrigenomics practitioner.

A competent nutrigenomics practitioner will not 'treat' or 'supplement' based on a gene variant, rather they will use the information to empower, gain knowledge and offer understanding.  Genetic testing is best used in conjunction with other metabolite testing, and always a though understanding of the patients history and current health concerns.  

 

Nathalie has completed training with Lifecode Gx and works closely with both Lifecode GX and Lifestyle Genomics for reporting. An initial consultation prior to arranging genetic testing is advised to understand which tests may be suitable for your individual needs/concerns.  Nathalie offers free 15 minute sessions to offer more information about the genetic packages.
