About Dr. Basma El Homasany
During my basic medical training, I was touched by the pain of many patients especially those with cancer and chronic inflammation. I turned to research, I was determined to dig deep into the root cause of inflammation and understand the molecular basis of diseases at the cellular level. I received my Master and then my PhD in Molecular Medicine from Trinity college Dublin, Ireland.
I realized that the future in medicine should be a more patient-centered approach, not only treating symptoms but also looking at the primary root causes. I completed the fellowship in antiaging, metabolic and nutritional medicine in 2012. It is a wellness approach pertinent to the prevention of diseases covering areas in functional, lifestyle and metabolic medicine. Metabolic and nutritional medicine is a preventive and personalized approach dealing with interactions among genetic, environmental, food, diet, toxins and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term health in the prevention of inflammation and age-related diseases.
