Event Details


Mood and the Gene-Diet-Environment Axis


Solving the neurochemical puzzle with personalised medicine


The topic of mental health is incredibly broad, with countless potential factors contributing to the development of mood disorders. These can include neurotransmitter imbalances related or unrelated to nutritional insufficiencies, chronic stress, neuro-inflammation, pyroluria, toxicity, lifestyle, diet, gut and genetic variations. Due to the complexity of these disorders, prioritising treatment strategies for the patient best outcome can be challenging.

This seminar aims to delve deep into the known contributors to neurotransmitter imbalances, with a focus on appreciating the role DNA tests and pathology can play in clarifying treatment targets.

Learning objectives


  • Recognise inflammation as a contributor to mood disorders and cognitive decline via changes to neurotransmitter availability and an expression of neurotrophic factors.
  • Understand the concept of pyroluria, the associated nutritional deficiencies and how they contribute to mood changes and additional health concerns.
  • Discover the role of Specific nutrients in neurotransmitter synthesis and metabolism.
  • Explore how certain gene variants, often referred to as SNPs (single nucleotide polymorphism) influence depression, anxiety and cognition, as well as neurotransmitter production, including dopamine, serotonin, histamine and GABA.
  • Learn how to assess and address genetic vulnerabilities, neurochemical factors, and metabolic abnormalities that may contribute to changes in mood and cognition.
  • Examine how the gene, diet, environment axis influences key biochemical pathways associated with normal brain and neurotransmitter function.
  • Review the role pathology plays in assessing the true impact of gene variants
