It’s all one big lie. You are not destined to your genetic disposition.
Today I will share the proven method to awaken your healthy genes and forever put all those bad genes to sleep. But first, understand that the food you eat, the beverages you drink, and the amount of time you spend sitting down or moving around all affect your health.
Think of these things as the walls and roof of your “house”. They are all built upon the foundation: the genetic materials passed down from your parents, and their parents, and so on.
People with a genetic history of diabetes have a higher risk of becoming diabetics. People with a family history of heart disease have a higher risk of heart attack and stroke. People with a family history of cancer are more prone to various forms of cancer. Genetics play a role in our health and lifestyle.
But have you ever thought that your lifestyle in fact can affect your genes?
Epigenetics is a relatively new field of science that studies how your environment (including your lifestyle) controls your genetic activity. Epigeneticists believe DNA isn’t set in stone, but the expression of the genetic code inherited from our parents and ancestors can be affected by things like diet and lifestyle habits.
As an example of epigenetics in action, the journal Nature Communications documented a study in Gambia that examined the effects diet had on pregnant women and their children. The mothers’ pre-conception diet had a visible effect on the DNA passed on to their children. Mothers who ate a better diet produced children with higher levels of vital nutrients, while mothers who ate poorly produced children with lower levels of those same nutrients.
Another study focused on the effects of methylation, or methyl molecules attaching to strands of DNA. These methyl molecules actually affect genetic activity, essentially changing the way the genes are expression. Methylation occurs as a result of environmental factors, such as the addition or elimination of certain nutrients. While the body removes most of this “genetic programming” during the earliest stages of conception (when the cells are just germ cells), it’s estimated that up to 5% of DNA cells retain the methylation. This proves that the “environmental programming” persists through conception and to pregnancy, childbirth, and beyond.

What’s so important about this discovery? Simple: it means you have more control over your health than you’d think!
Your genetic material is the foundation upon which the “house” of your health is built. However, thanks to the field of epigenetics, scientists have learned that the foundation can be altered. Environmental factors won’t change the actual DNA, but it will change the way your genes communicate with the rest of your body. You may be able to reduce your risk of obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, cancer, and other health problems by using specific environmental factors to turn certain genes off or on.
Changing your lifestyle can change the way your genes express themselves. Factors like stress, diet, exposure to toxins, behavior, and exercise can all affect genetic expression. Understanding this makes it clear that YOU have a great deal of control over your health. Genes mean you’re pre-disposed to something, not FATED for it!
Exposing your body to the right environment (proper food, positive mental and emotional state, healthy lifestyle, more activity) can actually switch off the genes that promote chronic disease, cancer, metabolic disease, and cardiovascular disease. At the same time, it can switch on the genes that combat disease. Your environment can affect the way your DNA is expressed: either positively or negatively.
Best of all, you can pass that genetic expression on to your children through epigenetic inheritance. Your lifestyle and environment can improve your genes to the point that you pass the healthy DNA on to your children. As the above-mentioned study proved, a healthy parent (mother and father alike) give their child a better chance of being healthy as well.
