This presentation will approach the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular disease from a personalized, predictive, proactive perspective. Uncoding the human genome has pioneered the way to an understanding of genetic risk. However, equally if not more important is the revolution in elucidating the epigenome. Understanding why genes turn on and off is paramount to disease treatment and prevention. This information will usher us into an era of medicine in which we truly have the opportunity to scientifically validate mind-body therapies, nutraceuticals, and the concept of food as information. Already in cardiology genetic testing is being utilized to determine medication dosages, potential side effects, and even the need for treatment. Diagnostic technology is allowing us to detect medical challenges long before they erupt into clinical disease. Tailoring programs of nutrition, nutraceuticals, and lifestyle change based on genetic susceptibility and epigentics is a paradigm shift for modern medicine.
