Did you know you're influencing your genes?

Did you know you're influencing your genes?
Today I want to explore the 6th pillar that provides the foundation for a thriving life.

This topic is what makes you who you are. What makes you "YOUnique"…

This principle shows that we're molding future generations... 

Epigenetics is the study of how your behaviour and environment influence and affect the way your genes work. This is what makes you unique. 

Even if 99.9% of two humans' genome is identical, there are still some genes that differ. Epigenetics influence our distinguishing, observable traits. The different combinations of genes that are turned on or off is what makes each one of us unique.  

•    This is why some of us have blonde hair or darker skin. 
•    Why some of us hate the taste of brinjals. 
•    Why are some of us are more sociable than others. 
•    Why some respond well to low volume exercise. 
•    Why some find it easier to adhere to diets. 
•    And why some of us have more success with a certain programme. 

For many decades the mainsteam thinking was that if you have an inherited or genetic disease, you're more or less doomed…

But science has0 now proven that this in not the case, and that you can change the expression of genes and associated disease through changes in lifestyle. 

Epigenetics explains how the genes we have inherited are either expressed or suppressed in our lives. It is what we “do” with our genes that influence this outcome. 

There are various pathways through which this stimulation happens. Stimuli in our environment and lifestyle factors include: 

•    Nutrients: What food we eat 
•    When we eat, time of day. When we don’t eat (fasting) 
•    Movement: exercise type, frequency, intensity and duration 
•    Sleep and wake cycles 
•    Radiation, toxins, pollution and sunlight
•    Substances like alcohol, drugs, prescription medication and smoking
•    Stress 
•    Thoughts and emotions (mind-states)  
•    Temperature 

These different factors will have a different effect on each individual and makes sense as we all experience varying results from engaging with our environment. 

This is highly individual as no other person on earth has your DNA. This also explains to us why there are such variations within certain poplutions. Why people respond differently to the exact same experience, nutrition, exercise, stress or other environmental input.

How to tell if you could be affected by Adrenal Fatigue

•    You feel tired or weak…
•    You need coffee to get going in the mornings…
•    Your daily tasks feel like hard work… 
•    You feel like you’re not coping (it’s all too much)…
•    You struggle to concentrate and don’t finish tasks…
•    You feel irritable, anxious or depressed…
•    Get headaches…
•    Reduced interest in sex…

Feeling run down and drained all the time doesn’t have to be your normal state-of-being. 

Unfortunately, it is for millions of people – all over the world – who just can’t seem to keep up anymore.

And there’s a very good explanation for this…

Researchers at numerous institutions, including Harvard University, Johns Hopkins and Stanford University identified that certain chemicals flick the ‘age switch’ on in people over 50, forcing them to slow down.

These chemicals gradually build up in your bloodstream over time as you age.

Until one day the switch finally flicks causing your metabolism to drag along at snail’s pace, dropping your oxygen levels and dipping your hormones until they’re practically undetectable.  

But it doesn't have to be that way!
The answer to restoring your youthful energy is as easy as 1-2-3… Full details here…

When things go wrong

Errors in the epigenetic process, can lead to abnormal gene activity or inactivity. This can cause problems like cancers, metabolic disorders, degenerative disorders and pre-mature ageing.

Psycho-neuro endocrinology explains how negative mind-states can give rise to a variety of non-communicable (lifestyle related) diseases, which include cancer, cerebrovascular, and cardiovascular disease and neuro- degenerative disease. I'll cover more on this topic in the future.  

Ageing is a normal process linked to specific patterns and changes in the epigenome. Understanding and harnessing epigenetic mechanisms and the epigenetic clock may enable us to slow or delay human ageing in the future.

The MOST dangerous type of cancer cell MUST be disarmed if there’s any hope of beating cancer

Scientists have discoverd that cancer cells have a certain hierarchy.

…Similar to a bee colony. There’s the worker bees, and the queen bee, whose sole responsibility is to ensure the survival of the colony by laying eggs. 

So it is with cancer...

There’s the hundreds of thousands of normal cancer cells, and then nestled deep inside a tumour, is at least one cancer stem cell… 

Like the queen bee, these cancer stem cells’ sole responsibility is to ensure the survival of their colony by mutating and evolving. 

Until now, chemotherapy and radiation have been unsuccessful in disarming these dominant cancer cells… 

But now there’s new hope for cancer sufferers.

Find out here how a Natural compound has been shown to destroy cancer stem cells…


When things go right...
Getting your lifestyle, thinking and feelings in order can have a profound effect on your health. 

You are "YOUnique" and there is no one-size-fits all solution. 

Today’s technology allows you to harness this knowledge and empower you to make the best choices for YOU.
