Welcome to another episode of the Dr. Lo Radio Show! I really enjoyed recording this episode, and I think you will enjoy it as well.

Today I am chatting with Yael Joffe and we are talking all about genetic testing. Yael Joffe is an expert in the field of nutrigenomics. Yael started as a dietitian and then went on to obtain her Ph.D. in Nutrigenomics from the University of Cape Town, exploring the genetics of obesity. She has co-authored three books and has published in peer-reviewed journals. She is currently an Adjunct Professor, teaching nutrigenomics at Rutgers University in the US, but to help close the nutrigenomic knowledge gap, she also founded an education company teaching nutrigenomics to clinicians around the world. She has also built a number of nutrigenetic tests, offering a way to ensure that we utilize the value inherent in nutrigenetics in the most powerful and ethical way.

We talk about so many great things in this episode. We talk about how to tap into what our genes can tell us. We also talk about the difference between epigenetics and genomics. We talk about the relationship between genetics and nutrition, the benefits of personalized nutrition based on genetics, and how your genetics impact your physical body.
If you are listening to this episode and you or someone you know is navigating through any of the health issues we discuss, I would be more than happy to support you in the journey! I work with people virtually and in-person in San Diego. Feel free to reach out to me to continue this conversation: @doctor_lo
