Clinical Application of the
Methylation Pathway

The Effects of 1-Carbon Metabolism on Chronic Disease

Michael Chapman, NDThis session is designed to help clinicians grasp the basic concept of methylation and understand its role in personalized and functional medicine. Methylation is a critical biochemical process that is involved in numerous systemic processes such as: hormone regulation/detoxification, neurotransmitter balance, DNA & RNA synthesis, myelination, energy production, and cell membrane repair, to name a few. This complete overview will cover the methylation pathway from a high-level view to a granular perspective in order to help clinicians incorporate methylation assessment into their personalized approach to patient care.

At the end of this presentation, the attendee should be able to:

  • Understand what common chronic diseases can be affected by altered methylation dynamics
  • Recognize the overall basics of the methylation pathway and common genomic markers that may impact methylation status
  • Identify diet and nutrient approaches that may help ensure adequate cofactors for the methylation pathway
