Optimizing Epigenetic Expression: Focus on Autoimmunity

Autoimmune Masterclass - Dr. Kara Fitzgerald - Optimizing Epigenetic Expression: Focus on Autoimmunity

Dr. Kara Fitzgerald explains the basics of methylation and epigenetics, and continues further along that path to cover ways that these factors play a role in the development of, and reversal of, autoimmune disease and other chronic conditions.

You will learn:

  • When (and how) Dr. Fitzgerald recommends starting to work on optimizing epigenetic expression when someone is thinking about having kids
  • When blindly supplementing high dose methyl donors, such as B12 and folate, might not be in our best interest
  • Dietary choices that will support optimal methylation status and genetic expression
  • The role of stress and trauma (physical or emotional) regarding methylation and systemic inflammation

Dr. Fitzgerald also covers, in detail, the many factors that may influence our methylation and genetic expression (epigenetics), along with suggestions pertaining to those factors. While the subjects here involve complex biochemistry, the information is presented in a clear and approachable manner for anyone.
