Linda Favreau, CNC, and future HHP graduate in 2016, is specializing in nutritional genetic consulting and is passionate about helping others unlock the root cause behind their acute and chronic illnesses. Linda founded Nutrition and Your Genes to help communicate her research to help others in the areas of epigenetics and nutrition; better known as nutrigenomics. She believes in the importance of epigenetics and takes a functional medicine approach with her clients. Her nutritional programs are ‘individualized’ for each client; derived from biochemical and physiological knowledge for the purpose of promoting good health while recognizing the individuality of each person. Her speciality is in genetic variant report interpretations and ‘individualized’ nutritional programs for optimum wellness. Her findings are based on results from 23 and Me, MTHFR Support, MethylGenetic Nutrition, Dr. Lynch’s Biochemical Pathways, a detailed health history; inclusive of current lab results, previous treatments and personal symptomatology. She believes you can change your destiny and take control of your health by understanding your risk or propensity for disease through epigenetics. ‘Never before has it been so easy and inexpensive to obtain your genetic information. You are the rightful owner of your raw genetic data. We all have inherited loss of function genetic mutations, in combination with environmental influences and lifestyle choices, that may have caused us to become ill, and now we can participate in our own early intervention and/or prevention. We can discover why we currently feel so bad and what we can do about it. We can look at the genetic patterns, or blueprint, and make informed changes. Even more astounding, we can optimize the health of our future children! ‘I will help you unlock the mysteries of your genetic make-up and assist you in your healing journey.’
