Whether you work in primary care, oncology, environmental medicine, mental disorders, autism or midwifery, 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. The weekend event will culminate Sunday afternoon with a presentation of at least four comprehensive clinical cases to include case history, signs and symptoms, testing results, treatment plan and outcomes.
Our discussions will cover the following:
- Review and updates on the folate, methionine and transsulfuration cycles and how to restore them
- Review and updates on mitochondrial and cell membrane dysfunction and how to restore them
- Clinically relevant and researched genetic polymorphisms
- Updated laboratory markers and tests to consider and why
- Changing the paradigm of condition-based treatment to restoration of genetic, biochemical and physiological function
- Interpreting laboratory testing
- Interactive case studies: Applying the principles of nutrigenomics and restoring function through actual full patient case studies
Dr Lynch will allow ample time for questions.
Course Note: The seminar will be video recorded. The DVDs along with electronic copy of the presentation will be packaged as a distance learning opportunity.

Benjamin Lynch, ND, received his bachelors degree 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 him towards nutrigenomics and methylation dysfunction. He currently researches, writes and presents worldwide on the topic of MTHFR and methylation defects. He lives in Seattle, WA with his wife, Nadia, and three boys, Tasman, Mathew and Theodor. You may learn more about Dr Lynch and his work at www.MTHFR.Net. Dr Lynch is also the President & CEO of www.SeekingHealth.com, a company oriented towards disease prevention and health promotion.
