An introduction to nutrigenetics and nutrigenomics and how to apply the science in practice.

IN PERSON (conducted in English) + ONLINE COURSE that includes 4 DNA tests PLUS a DNA Core Report!

Fletcher Hotel Nieuwegein, Utrecht, Netherlands

We are delighted to be hosting our IN PERSON Certification course in Utrecht with Helen Gautschi & Ann Lannoye!

This course will focus on a number of areas that functional medicine practitioners will be working with in their clinical practice, covering the role that genetic expression plays in a person’s risk for chronic disease. When combined with functional testing, genetics provides objective information allowing for a more precise treatment strategy.

Key Objectives:

  • Learn How, If We Understand Genetic Expression, Intervention Strategies May Help Prevent Disease Occurring.
  • Learn Which Supplements Are Advantageous To Take With Particular Genetic Expression.
  • Understand the Benefits of Including A Genetic Test For every Patient and be able to Convey this Confidently

A combination of guided self-study and in-person training, you will be introduced to the concept of nutrigenetics and nutrigenomics, and how to apply the science in practice. The course provides important information about genes and the underlying principles of our core DNA tests, increasing your understanding and confidence to use these tests. During the in-person training, you will also learn how to use genetic testing in collaboration with functional testing. The results of these two test methods offer a robust platform on which to build highly individualised treatment strategies.

The course price includes IN PERSON training PLUS our comprehensive online training (27 hours of self-study in English) that will ideally be completed before the live event to maximise the learning experience. The course fee also includes 4 dnalife® DNA tests PLUS the DNA Core Report:

DNA Core includes all gene variants analysed in DNA Health, DNA Diet, and DNA Sport, in one user-friendly report.

Our Educators: 

Helen Gautschi, RD
Helen Gautschi, a registered dietician with over twelve years of experience in personalised healthcare, heads up the research and development and education for dnalife, with a focus on nutrigenetic testing. Helen is completing her MSc in Nutritional Epidemiology and Public Health at Wageningen University, focusing on early life exposures and breast cancer risk. She has a passion for nutritional biochemistry and specialises in nutritional genomics and its application in personalised healthcare, advocating their role in chronic disease prevention and healthy ageing. She has spearheaded the development of DNA test offerings related to genetics and mental health, pain management, and maternal health, and developed related online educational courses for dnalife. Helen frequently lectures at local and international conferences on nutrigenetics and personalised healthcare.

Ann Lannoye
Ann Lannoye is a Functional Medicine Practitioner with over 20 years of clinical experience in the field of Orthomolecular Medicine, Functional Medicine, Functional Nutrition and Functional Neurology.

Having owned and run a nursing home for severely ill elderly people in Belgium for over 25 years, Ann is now a strong advocator of preventive health care. Ann is committed to helping practitioners and their clients extend the quality of life and health through a better understanding of the underlying mechanisms of chronic conditions, and by early interventions in lifestyle and nutrition. Over the last 20 years she has built a unique personalised medicine approach based on new knowledge and clinical experience in these fields, most recently, working in South Africa in a clinic concept that mainly uses DNA testing for their treatment strategies.
Ann is a sought after international medical adviser and educator.
