So How do you actually prevent Disease?
Well...There are 4 pillars of Prevention that we focus on:
// Proper Nutrition //
// Body Movement //
// Stress Management //
// Plant Supplementation //
Ever heard of Epigenetics?
Epigenetics is the study of changes in genetic expression - how and why certain genes of ours get switched on
And it is well known that...
Epigenetic changes are natural and occur in us every day - they can be positive or negative
Things like what you eat, how you exercise & how you manage stress can switch certain genes on or off
Gene expression for disease is not set in stone - you don't just have "bad genes"
This is great news!
A set of identical twins are genetically 100% the same, but can lead very different lifestyles. One twin works a stressful job on Wall Street eating take-out & Pepsi for lunch and never exercises. The other twin is a Florist eating Salmon with a green salad & herbal tea for lunch and does yoga 3x a week.
Which one do you think is more likely to develop a disease?
(remember, epigenetic changes can be positive or negative)
A 25 yr old man has a strong family history of Type II Diabetes - he is the only one in his family that has not been diagnosed with it yet. Even though Diabetes most likely "runs in his genes," he understands that he has a lot of control over what happens with his health through his daily choices. So he eats properly, controlling his blood sugar, exercises 3-4 x/week and limits his alcohol intake. He never gets Diabetes. The gene never gets expressed. Win. He then passes these habits on to his own kids, and they do not develop Diabetes either. Win win.
So by using these 4 Pillars as a framework, we can start turning on the right genes
Let me help you switch on the right genes!
