Premium: SOLD OUT Five "Premium" exhibitor tables are available, and located in the lobby immediately outside the auditorium. A Premium exhibitor will have one 3.5’ X 8’ table, two chairs and access to power (see additional benefits below).

Standard: 11 "Standard" exhibitor tables are available and located along the hallway between the auditorium lobby and the dining commons. A Standard exhibitor will have two 3’ X 6’ tables in an “L” shape, two chairs and access to power (see additional benefits below). 

Additional Exhibitor Benefits – Both Premium and Standard exhibitors can have two representatives. Each representative will be given a participant packet which includes a CD of the presenter’s PowerPoint presentation, lunch each day, invitation to the “Meet & Greet” social on Saturday evening, and access to attendees during morning registration, breaks, lunch hour, and at the social. We will also provide a complimentary copy of the audio recording of the two-day presentation six to eight weeks after the event. Exhibitors can have “give aways” at their booth, but no “give aways” will be part of the formal conference activities.

Seminar Description:

Would you like to have improved clinical results, decreased medical expenses for your patients as well as increased patient referrals? Identifying and treating common genetic mutations is medicine’s fastest growing area clinically. Genetic testing unveils your patient’s unique biochemistry allowing you to optimize treatment. The problem is: Are you and other health professionals approaching it properly? Do you know where to start? Does your patient routinely know more than you in this area?

Whether you work in primary care, oncology, environmental medicine, mental disorders, autism or midwifery, to name a few, this seminar will greatly enhance your practice and your own personal health. This seminar focuses on methylation along with the various genetic mutations found along various critical pathways – and how they affect one’s health.
Our discussions will cover the following topics:

  • the clinical significance of nutrigenomics, introducing methylation and the importance of healthy diet, lifestyle and environment
  • the pathways of folate metabolism, B12, transmethylation, transsulfuration, SAMe, mitochondrial function, detoxification pathways and cell membrane functions
  • common genetic polymorphisms along with their effects and interactions with diet, xenobiotics, nutrients and medications
  • genetic testing, how to take a clinical nutrigenomic history, signs and symptoms and lab testing
  • how to begin optimizing various genetic polymorphisms with diet, lifestyle, environmental changes, detoxification, medications and targeted supplementation
  • identification of problems with research, ‘natural deselection theory’ and empowering your patients with clinical nutrigenomics
  • talking with the patient to determine the pros and cons of knowing one’s own genetic propensity for disease

This seminar is highly interactive. You will practice with actual past cases to apply what you’ve learned.

Upon completion of the seminar, you will be able to:

  • Discuss the various biochemical pathways affecting folate, B12, SAMe, methylation, detoxification, mitochondria and cell membranes
  • List various common genetic polymorphisms and how they interact with each other
  • Explain how to order and interpret various laboratory tests relating to this topic
  • Explain the effects of diet, environment and supplementation on the various biochemical pathways
  • Establish an individualized treatment program based on history, physical exam, lab testing and genetic polymorphisms

Location: Bastyr University Kenmore Campus, room 176. Bastyr University is housed in an older facility with fluctuating interior temperatures; it is advisable to wear layers. Also, Bastyr is a “fragrance-free” campus.

Benjamin Lynch, ND received his BS in Cell and Molecular Biology from the University of Washington and his ND from Bastyr University. His passion for identifying the cause of disease directed his focus toward nutrigenomics and methylation dysfunction. He currently researches, writes and presents worldwide on the topic of MTHFR and methylation defects. Dr. Lynch is also the President & CEO of www.SeekingHealth.com , a company oriented towards disease prevention and health promotion. He lives in Seattle, WA with his wife and three boys..
