2019 Conference

Bob Miller, CTN

Bob Miller, CTN, will present his research on how genetic weakness, combined with epigenetic factors from the environment, are impacting the Heme cycle, thus down regulating SUOX, which upregulates the NOX enzyme, in what he has named the “NADPH Steal”.  This also decreases detox ability by many Phase I and Phase II pathways, leading to inflammation and susceptibility to pathogens and mold.

Bio

Bob Miller is a Traditional Naturopath specializing in the field of genetic-specific nutrition. He earned his naturopathic degree from Trinity School of Natural Health and is board certified through the ANMA. In 1993, he opened the Tree of Life practice and he has served as a traditional naturopath for 25 years. For the past several years, he has been engaged exclusively with nutritional genetic variants and related research, specializing in nutritional support for those with chronic Lyme disease.

An Educator

Bob lectures nationally and internationally at seminars to educate health care practitioners about genetic variants and nutritional supplementation for achieving optimal health, and holds live webinars every other Thursday evening for health professionals. In 2016, he created an online certification course on genetic nutrition for health professionals now training over 500 health professionals in the program. He holds an annual genomic conference for practitioners around the world.

Genetic Testing and Cloud Based Software Developer

Bob is the President and founder of a company that provides to health professionals a custom DNA testing chip (Your Genomic Resource) with DNA extraction by Brooks Labs at Rutgers that is analyzed by his cloud-based software called Functional Genomic Analysis. The DNA data is organized and compares labs and symptoms to assist holistic and functional medicine practitioners around the world to create personalized nutritional protocols.

A Researcher

To support his growing genetic research efforts, Bob founded and personally funds the NutriGenetic Research Institute in 2015 to research the relationship between genetic variants and presenting symptoms. He has an advisory board to assist in research topics.

His first research project on genetic variants in those with chronic Lyme Disease, was one of two winners for research by the ILADS international meeting held in Helsinki, Finland in 2016. His Phase II study of Lyme disease was presented at the American ILADS conference in November 2016, Phase III was presented at the International ILADS conference in Paris, France in May 2017 and his Phase IV study on mTOR and Autophagy in Lyme disease was presented in Boston, November 2017. His Phase V study was presented at the International ILADS conference in Warsaw, Poland in June 2018, and Phase VI was the poster winner at the USA conference held in Chicago, November 2018.

A Nutritional Supplement Formulator

Bob has researched and created 75 nutritional supplement products for Professional Health Products, a nutritional line for health professionals only. The products he formulated was based upon his genetic research and is designed to support function that may be impaired by genetic weakness.

Lecture

Saturday, May 4 7:00 am – 8:00 am
How Genetic Weakness and Epigenetic Factors are Impacting Detox Ability – Sponsored by Functional Genomic Analysis and Nutrigenetic Research Institute

Lecture Highlights:

  • Excess inflammation and weakness in anti-oxidants leads to less ability to remove toxins which results in more potential harm from environmental toxins
  • Environmental toxins  stimulate the NADPH Oxidase (NOX) enzyme to make excess inflammation
  • Excess inflammation inhibits the GAD enzyme to covert Glutamate to GABA, thus resulting in more inflammation and anxiety
  • Understanding genetic weakness in anti-oxidant production and detoxification pathways are critical in creating a personalized protocol to support healthy detoxification
