Nutrigenomics is an exciting new science using nutrition or FOOD to modify genetic expression. DNA is made up of just 4 letters- T A C and G. This is why the name of our clinic is TACGA using a combination of these letters.. These letters are arranged together in the body like “sentences”. We look at the “spelling” of your DNA to spot any “typos”. These are called “SNPs” or Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms, which can be identified and treated.

Food provides nutrition and fuel for the body, but food chemicals also switch genes on and off. Specific dietary interventions can be used to improve outcomes for children on the autism spectrum. The power of this approach is that it is addressing the specific issues from the “bottom up” by improving the gene expression, rather than “top down” approaches which Band-Aid symptoms.
