Diet, Detox and Drug Muggers

Its spring in the Northern Hemisphere! 
Time to think about the liver and detoxifying?

Please join us on Tuesday April 3rd, 2012 at 4pm pacific / 7pm eastern as we host Sheila Dean, DSC, RD, LD, CCN, CDE for a webinar entitled “Diet, Detox and Drug Muggers.” 

Dr. Dean will be discussing how food, medications, and a typical lifestyle tax our liver and overall health.  She'll discuss how the liver detoxifies these substances through a two-stage system, called Phase 1 and Phase 2 Biotransformation and Detoxification.  She'll also discuss how our genetic potential can enhance or impede our ability to detoxify.  She'll discuss current information on how a SNP (single nucleotide polymorphism) can affect your ability to detoxify.  And finally she'll discuss the basic concept behind functional assessment so that you can discover your own genetic roadmap.
