Every experience, connection, meal, and countless other environmental factors can influence whether specific genes are turned on or off, affecting all kinds of physiological processes, including aging.

Kara Fitzgerald provides eye-opening insights into this topic and so much more.

Tune in to explore:

  • Epigenetics – what it means and the latest developments in the field
  • How the tumor microenvironment affects gene expression
  • How B12 and other supplements might impact the process of DNA methylation and why it matters clinically
  • The mechanism of DNA methylation
  • The difference between chronological and biological age
  • How toxins like alcohol might impact the DNA methylation cycle

Fitzgerald is the medical director of The Sandy Hook Clinic, host of New Frontiers and Functional Medicine, and author of the book Younger You: Reduce Your Bio Age and Live Longer, Better.

Her current research revolves around the impacts of diet and lifestyle on the epigenome and how a specific protocol centered on these factors might deliver surprising, beneficial health outcomes in the clinic.
