New Webinar Series on Genomics
Dr Charles Gant, Director of Education and Training for the International Academy of Precision Medicine, announces an upcoming webinar series on genomics.
As you may know genomics will utterly transform medicine and be a unifying integrative factor, since herbal remedies, energetic treatments, supplements, drugs, psychospiritual interventions, diet, lifestyle, toxicities and immune challenges all change epigenetic expression.
Those found to have certain common, important and modifiable (with above interventions) single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) can benefit greatly from genomic analysis and treatment, which is the basis of the postgraduate IAPM course.
Come learn functional medicine again from the genomics angle as we present real life cases and measure the success of our genomic interventions through functional medicine.
Let’s enhance our insight by witnessing the metabolome’s and microbiome’s astonishing connections to the genome, and vice versa.
Because of all the hard work we’ve devoted to learning and practicing functional medicine, extending our knowledge and skills into the genomics arena is like picking low hanging fruit, a harvest of powerful insights which is unfortunately not unavailable to our conventional medicine colleagues who are not schooled in metabolomics and microbiomics.
Consequently, the president’s Precision Medicine Initiative is promoted as a futuristic mission, awaiting a golden age when supercomputers will sort out all this complex data and make sense of it.
Of course, we all look forward to learning about that data someday.
But we know that Precision Medicine and Genomics is an idea whose time has come, directly applicable to our routine evaluations on the patients we see today.
The course will partly follow the just released text book “SNPBit Compendium I” which can be purchased on Amazon or here: https://lifezonewellness.selz.com/categories/snpbits-compendium

As with the undergraduate courses which used the textbook “Laboratory Evaluations in Integrative and Functional Medicine“, I will embellish the course with extra reading material, clinical insights and studies, knowledge which is exploding on virtually a daily basis.
The course will be similar to previous IAPM trainings of 3 or 4 webinars a month with discussion and case presentation, with each of the 6 topic areas listed below: (minimum of twelve, 1.5 hour webinars starting in March).
1) The Genomics of Phase I and Phase II detoxification, focusing especially on drug detoxification and regulation with supplements and herbs. Cytochrome P450 enzymes, glutathione, acetylation, taurine, sulfate, glycine and glucuronidation conjugation will be discussed in depth.
2) The Genomics of Methylation, focusing especially on mental disorders, cancer (cytosine methylation) and heart disease, as well as its phase II detoxification role.
3) The Genomics of Neurotransmitter and hormonal synthesis, receptor function and metabolism.
4) The Genomics of Mitochondrial DNA (mitochondria have a completely distinct set of chromosomes).
5) The Genomics of specialized genes unrelated to the above topics (e.g., FUT1, PON1 etc.).
6) Integrating genomic approaches to complex clinical cases.
Again, I am pleased to announce a webinar series in genomics provided by IAPM and I look forward to sharing clinical knowledge together and enhancing our clinical skills to better serve the patients we care for.

A LETTER OF HOPE FOR FLINT
To all concerned about Lead Poisoning from Flint, Michigan Water.
Many reports about the effects of Flint’s Toxic Water have stated that Lead Poisoning and its effects are irreversible. I want to assure you and your loved ones that Lead Poisoning and the disabilities it causes ARE Treatable AND Reversible. There IS hope.
I am an MD who routinely assists patients and clinicians in understanding how to detoxify lead and other heavy metals from the body. I have seen great successes in my patients, including children and adults, and I want to assure that you have some information that enables you and your loved ones to heal from this tragedy.
I created a free Video Series (and document) for the residents of Flint called “You CAN Heal from Lead Poisoning”, which you can view. These videos will begin to inform you about what you can do, and why you may not be hearing about these options.
Please share this life changing information with everyone.
Charles Gant, MD, PhD
