In 2015 Bob Miller was inspired to start examining chronic lyme disease, and he founded NutriGenetic Research Institute to research and publish reports on the relationship between genetic variants, labs and presenting symptoms. Bob has served as a traditional naturopath for 20 years, and earned his naturopathic degree from Trinity School of Natural Health. Recognizing that there was not a nutritional supplement line on the market comprehensive enough to address all of the possible genetic variants, he began working with a national company, Professional Health Products, to formulate an Epigenetics line of products.
