Dr Judy Ford is one of the pioneers of Human Genetics. Her knowledge and experience date from the time when human chromosomes were just being described to now, when the roles of individual genes are being defined.
The advantage of having spent 30 years leading laboratories working on genes and chromosomes is that she is not easily swayed by the latest ‘fad’ or claims that are not well-substantiated.
Judy’s special interests are in the MECHANISMS/CHANGES IN GENES AND CHROMOSOMES that underlie AGEING. Furthermore, because ageing underlies many health problems she has extensively studied how these changes also affect FERTILITY, MISCARRIAGE and CANCER.
Dr Judy Ford and her research team conducted the largest prospective study in the world on NATURAL FERTILITY and her light-hearted but insightful books about this work – IT TAKES TWO, MAKING LOVE & BABIES and BUILD SPERM WITH ATTITUDE can be accessed through this website or directly from her page on Amazon.
If you are looking for a lively speaker for your organisation, please contact Dr Judy. She mostly talks about health related topics but is happy to talk about her travels as a scientist – especially her trip to Chernobyl, five years after the accident! Here is a link to a recent talk she gave on Zoom on how to ‘Reduce stress and its consequences‘. This session was thwart with technical issues so definitely not as good as face-to-face!
This website contains blogs to help you optimise your lifestyle. Since Dr Judy only writes a blog when she is inspired to write about a new or unusual finding, please sign up to the mailing list so you will receive the next blog!
Dr Judy has also developed several online courses that you can access on this website. If you have an idea or request for a course, please let her know.
Last but not least, if you are conducting a legal case where you need an Expert in either Genetics or Chemical Toxicity, please contact Dr Judy Ford to discuss whether she is able to help you.
Hello and welcome to my website. My name is Dr Judy Ford.
Many health practitioners specialise in either ‘lifestyle’ OR ‘genetics’ but very few consider both genes and lifestyle and how these interact to affect health. This is why my work is different. I have a PhD in Genetics but after working in Human Genetics for many years, I soon realised that it was critical to understand how genes and lifestyle interact to affect health.
However, in addition to understanding how our genes and lifestyle affect our health, we also need to appreciate how these are influenced by our age.
Our diets and lifestyle need to adapt as we age. As we move through the stages of childhood, fertility and reproduction to ‘post-fertility’ and ‘old age’, our bodies have some different needs. We need to understand these changes: the steps we should take to optimise our health differ at different ages and between males and females.
At all ages, we need to work with our ‘current biology’ and when we do this, we can greatly improve our vitality, resilience, and resistance to most common health problems.
My specific expertise is in CELL DIVISION
You might not have heard anyone else discuss cell division but this is the critical factor underlying almost all aspects of health and very few practitioners know much about it! You will find, however, that I refer to it quite extensively in my books and talks because problems in cell division underlie AGEING, CANCER and INFERTILITY/MISCARRIAGE.
