With the mapping of the human genome in recent years, a lot of research has gone into understanding how some genetic differences called SNPs (Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms) play a role in the etiology of disease and chronic health conditions.

Dr. Kendra Becker-Mussante, the “Genetic Genius”, educated us about some of the more commonly known mutations that can affect kids with autism, ADHD, SPD, autoimmune disorders, allergies and asthma.

Some of the SNPs we be discussed are:

  • COMT
  • SCN1A1
  • PON1

Dr. Becker tells us how “genetics loads the gun, but environment pulls the trigger”, meaning that just because you or your child has one or more of these mutations does not necessarily mean that a disease or chronic health condition will occur.

Instead, Dr. Becker reveals how diet and lifestyle interventions can affect the expression of these genes and improve health outcomes.


Kendra Becker-Mussante MS, ND, FNP, BC, APRN is an integrated physician practicing for over 10 years in Waterford, CT; she is known as the “Genetic Genius”.

Her specialties include MTHFR, fertility and treatment of “the 4As” (asthma, autism, allergies, ADHD).

She is an adjunct faculty member at two prominent universities, where she teaches concussion education to physicians and precepts student doctors and nurse practitioners.

Dr. Becker lectures all over the country on topics such as autism, the immune system, MTHFR & genetic mutations that have health implications and “Keeping Healing in the Home”.

She is the author of “A Delicious Way to Heal the Gut” and “All you CAN Eat” and was chosen as one of Connecticut’s “Top Naturopathic Doctors” and 10 Best APRNs.
