The Exposome

Practitioner Education Events 2019
Our practitioner education roadshow is back and throughout 2019 we are focusing on the exposome; what it is, why it is relevant, how it relates to health and what you can do about it.

Once again, nutrition practitioner and doctoral researcher in clinical neuroscience Miguel Toribio-Mateas will be translating complex science into simple but powerful clinical interventions.

Key takeaways from the day

You will acquire an understanding of:

  • What the exposome is
  • The environmental factors which contribute to poor health
  • The impact of the exposome on body systems, including the immune, neurological and cardiovascular systems
  • Nutritional, lifestyle and supplemental implementations to help protect against environmental factors

An introduction to the exposome

What is the exposome?The exposome can be defined as the sum of all exposures contributing to your health throughout your lifetime – beginning before birth and including insults from both environmental and occupational sources as you progress through life. Understanding how exposures from the environment around you, the foods you consume, and the lifestyle you lead interact with your own unique genetic make-up, physiology and biochemistry is what the exposome is all about.

Helping you unravel the science

During this seminar Miguel will explain how increasing your awareness of the exposome can help you as a practitioner to take a holistic look at how environmental exposures contribute to both health and disease. More specifically he will discuss the impact of the following factors:

  • nutritionNutrition
  • sources of toxicitySources of toxicity
  • sources stressSources of psychological stress and anxiety
  • Movement and physical activity
  • environmentalEnvironmental enrichment; sources of brain stimulation, or lack thereof
  • microbiomeInteraction with the microbiome

Practical supplemental solutions

Helen Drake
Nutrition practitioner Helen Drake, with a background in biological science and research, will talk you through the specific nutrients which can be used to support our body systems in ameliorating the effects of the exposome. Helen will focus on practical supplemental solutions and supporting research for the use of these nutraceuticals, as well as introducing the research and development behind our new CytoProtect range.
