This is one of my favourite chats this year. No, really. Dr. Denise Furness is one of those rare people who can comfortably combine her considerable intellect, knowledge, research background and academic credibility with outstanding social skills, relatability, story-telling and humour. She is an award-winning medical researcher, international speaker and author. She is a CSIRO trained Molecular Geneticist, who considers herself a Holistic Geneticist. She has been working in the field of nutritional genomics and personalised health for almost twenty years. In 2012 she founded ‘Your Genes & Nutrition’ and began working with integrative G.Ps and exploring functional medicine. She now works with a range of patients helping them identify underlying triggers and root causes of their health concerns. Using a combined approach of genetics, biochemical markers, nutrition and lifestyle medicine (functional medicine), she helps people take charge of their health and wellbeing. Enjoy.
