Nutrigenetics: Personalizing Nutrition Based on Genetics
Nutrigenetics is an exciting and emerging new field of practice, which uses individual genetic profiles to personalize dietary and supplementation recommendations. Genetic variations, known as SNPs (single nucleotide polymorphisms), affect how an individual responds to nutrients, supplements, and lifestyle changes. The goal of nutrigenetics is the prevention and treatment of disease as well as optimizing the health of an individual.
In this seminar, we will explore the basics of genetics as well as identify some major SNPs and how the combination of genetics, blood work, and food journal assessment can be applied to individualize a nutrition program.
About Alla Marinow, B.A. N.C.
Alla is a graduate of Bauman College and the University of Western Ontario (Canada). Originally, Alla’s own ill health brought her to Bauman College, which facilitated reversing an auto-immune disease and addressing post cancer surgery without chemo or drugs. Following graduation, she and her husband started their own company in Berkeley, CA, Be Well! Natural Health and Well-Being, which focuses on holistic healing, both nutritionally and spiritually.
As a holistic nutritionist, Alla specializes in diseases ranging from pre-autoimmune conditions, auto-immune diseases, and cancer. In her practice she has found that genetics makes up about 25% of the missing piece of the health puzzle. By combining health history, food journals, blood work, and genetics, practitioners can provide a truly individualized program to set a client on a healing path. While nutrigenetics is a relatively new field, it helps to improve outcomes, avoid the pitfalls of hit-and-miss supplementation, correct nutritional deficiencies, and helps complex clients’ advance healing.

Presented by Bauman College Alumna, Dani Rhoades, and her business partner, Whitney Eves, this webinar will outline the key nutritional and supplemental recommendations for pregnant women to best support the growth and development of a fetus. Pregnancy is a unique time when women’s bodies experience exceptionally high nutrient demands and very rarely are they aware of these demands or how to meet them.
This lecture will explore detailed case studies of women who became nutritionally depleted by their pregnancies and of others who experienced healthy pregnancies, carried their babies full-term, and gave birth to happy, healthy littles. The presenters will discuss trends in the outcomes of pregnancies, key nutrients and supplements that can support mothers’ and babies’ health, and their go-to recommendations for pregnant women.
About Dani Rhoades, N.C.
After my own journey with chronic illness, where I found that nutrition was the only way to address the underlying root issues, I became extremely passionate about helping others do the same. I graduated from Bauman College with honors and received my certificate as a nutrition consultant in 2012. When I opened my nutrition consulting business, Wholesome Practices, in 2013, I knew I wanted to focus on preventive care for children. While running my own practice, I had the incredible privilege of working at an integrative pediatrics office for five years. I saw firsthand the tremendous health issues children are facing and how their resilient bodies can respond to sound nutrition. That’s how I ended up here—creating a Prenatal Package—because health starts in utero. I have seen how much proper nutrition and supplementation can help pregnant women experience having a happy, healthy little.
About Whitney Eves, N.T.C.
As a young child and into my mid-20s, I suffered from undiagnosed digestive issues along with chronic ear and sinus infections. My journey to health took time, but eventually, I was able to achieve vibrant and sustained health through significant diet and lifestyle changes. This is how my passion to help people heal and nourish their bodies through real food was born. Ten years and two babies later, here I am. Having children changed everything for me; all I wanted was to have happy, healthy littles. After giving birth to my first daughter in 2016, I found my calling and dedicated all of my energy to nutritional care for moms and babies. I went back to school to study nutrition so that I would have the education to help moms thrive in pregnancy and give every baby the start they deserve. Providing the most up-to-date information to my clients and working alongside Dani has been a dream come true. I’m here to share from my personal experience as a mom of two that living a healthy life does not need to be complicated, it can actually be quite simple.
