NutriGenetic Research Institute, in Ephrata, founded by Bob Miller, certified traditional naturopath and primary researcher, received one of two prestigious Lyme Poster Awards at the 2016 European International Lyme and Associated Disease Society (ILADS) Conference in Helsinki, Finland, on June 11, for its outstanding Lyme research presentation, Higher Levels of Genetic Variants (SNPs) Found in those with Chronic Lyme Disease.
Participation was by invitation only, and NutriGenetic Research Institute secured its place as one of the conference’s poster presenters by submitting a detailed research abstract.
Miller presented the research methodology and findings at the conference, and was on hand to receive the award. “I am very honored to receive this award from ILADS,” Miller said. “There is a real and dire need for answers within the Lyme community—particularly why some patients with chronic Lyme disease fail to get better with their physician-directed treatment protocol.” The study shows potential for having a positive and substantive impact on the future care and treatment of patients with chronic Lyme disease if nutritional therapy is added to compensate for the variants, thus creating more favorable conditions for the medical treatment administered by licensed physicians to be effective.
Miller is also the founder and a practitioner at Tree of Life, in Ephrata, which offers naturopathic and holistic health services, including: genetic nutritional consultations, fertility optimization, prenatal wellness, weight loss, reflexology, life coaching and stress management.
