Since the mapping of the human genome was completed in 2003, our understanding of how nutrients and other food-derived molecules impact cell function has expanded exponentially. The term nutrigenomics was coined in 2004. The principles of Nutrigenomics strongly underpin our approach to prevention and treatment of disease.
The word nutrigenomics means “food talking to your genes”. Every mouthful of food we consume initiates a complex ‘conversation’ with the DNA of our cells – conversations which determine whether the protective or disease-promoting cellular “switches” are activated.
At True Medicine we offer the scientifically validated treatment guidelines of the G.E.M.M. protocol, developed by Dr Christine Houghton:
“Over the last half century nutritional medicine has contributed enormously to our understanding of why we get sick. Equally, it has provided us with strategies to prevent disease and promote a state of wellness, without primary reliance on drugs and surgery.” Taking this knowledge to a new and higher level of understanding was the inspiration for Dr Houghton’s G.E.M.M. protocol.
