Dr. Jennifer Kessmann has been studying nutrition for most of her life. Her undergraduate major was scientific nutrition and nutritional support. She has studied extensively with Dr. Andrew Weil since 2008 and has been a Diplomat in Integrative Medicine since 2012. She has been a member of the Institute of Functional Medicine since 2015. She individualizes nutrition for each person due to her knowledge that each of us is unique and there is not one diet that is good for everyone.
The field of nutrition has become much more complex than calories and carbs and requires extensive knowledge of the genetics behind the disease. For instance, if one has a healthy gut with good probiotic, less reactive bacteria then a higher fat diet may not be a problem.
If one has an inflammatory gut, then fat in the diet can increase the translocation of LPS across the gut to contribute to extensive inflammation and immune reactivity.
