What if you could.....

  • Maintain excellent health, day after day, even as you get older?
  • Take back control of your health and avoid the common 'diseases of civilisation'?
  • Have little (if any) reliance on pharmaceuticals or surgery to become and stay well?

Chronic Disease is largely preventable, so why don't health authorities focus on strategies for promoting disease PREVENTION? Why are pharmaceutical drugs and surgery the primary treatments offered in the treatment and prevention of disease? Why is it left to individuals to discover how to do this for themselves?

The major chronic diseases responsible for the untold suffering in populations worldwide include heart disease, diabetes, asthma, arthritis, osteoporosis and cancer. These diseases are killing us whilst at the same time, crippling the governments obliged to fund the growing imposition on their health budgets.

Over the last three decades, Type 2 diabetes has emerged as one of the most preventable but common diseases engulfing us. Both rich and poorer nations have succumbed to it equally. Diabetes is already a major cause of death and disability, a trend which shows no signs of abating unless individuals take control of their own health and reduce their reliance on mainstream medicine.

Just as much of the burden of chronic disease is largely preventable, so too are the day-to-day ailments like colds and 'flus, aches and pains and digestive upsets which drive us to pharmacies and doctors in search of rapid relief.

This book explores the ground-breaking world of NUTRIGENOMICS, a new paradigm in health care which identifies powerful food-derived compounds capable of 'switching on' or 'switching off' the DNA in our cells' genes. Learn how to utilise the most powerful known nutrigenomic compounds responsible for protecting your cells and optimising their function. The result? Enhanced well-being, healthier ageing and much less need for drugs and surgery!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Christine Houghton BSc.(Biochem.), Grad.Dip.Hum.Nutr, R.Nutr., PhD (Nutritional Biochemistry-Nutrigenomics)



Clinician, author, educator, and a regular speaker at Australian and international conferences, Dr Christine Houghton's intense appreciation of the power of food as therapy began in the 1970s, an era when there were very few supplements available. With few other choices back then, she soon discovered the real power of food as a potent clinical intervention tool. Since then, she has enjoyed a highly rewarding career in Nutritional Medicine (including in Nutrigenomics) spanning more than 30 years. Christine holds a PhD in Nutritional Biochemistry-Nutrigenomics and a BSc in Biochemistry, both from The University of Queensland (Australia), as well as a Graduate Diploma in Human Nutrition from Deakin University (Victoria, Australia), and is an Adjunct Lecturer in the School of Human Movement and Nutrition Science at The University of Queensland. She is currently Chief Scientific Officer at Cell-Logic Pty Ltd, where she researches and leads a team in formulating a number of scientifically-based nutrigenomically-active supplements. In addition to her scientific and other publications, Christine is also the co-author of two evidence-based practitioner nutrigenomics courses -- the only comprehensive courses of their kind available globally.
