Scientific research has shown that although we cannot choose our genetics, we do have the ability to influence which of our genes are expressed. We have the ability to turn on genes which promote health, and turn off those which code for illness and disease. How can we do this? The answer is surprisingly simple…

Our lifestyle habits, including our diet, exercise, and thoughts dramatically affect the expression of our genes. We used to think that our DNA determined everything…from the colour of our hair to the health of our body. Now science has discovered that our DNA is only a blueprint. From this simple blueprint, there are over 30,000 variations which can be built from each gene. A whole new branch of medicine is developing called “epigenetics.” Epigenetics simply means, “above the genes”.

Our goal is to help you create a lifestyle which helps you turn on healthy genes, and turn off genes which may make you susceptible to illness or disease.  We call it Defying Your DNA.  Wellness can be simple.  There are only 3 main reasons why we lose health and it is the reversal of these factors which empowers us to create lasting wellness.  Click here to learn more about the 3 causes of disease and illness.

 

Our technologies, products and services are created to empower you to Defy Your DNA and help you to:

  1. DETOXIFY – and reduce your toxic load.
  2. NOURISH – and strengthen your system
  3. ADAPT – to release

…But Don’t Genes Control Everything?

This idea of being able to control our genetic expression is a very new concept for many individuals.  To help get you jumpstarted, we have included some great videos and information.  The following movies are from the top epigenetic researchers in the world to empower you with the knowledge that you truly have the ability to create the health of your body.

Epigenetics: Your Unlimited Potential For Health

Dr. Bruce Lipton, the author of “The Biology of Belief”, explains how we are not limited by our genes.  This is an amazing video which will help you better understand how our thoughts and beliefs affect our physical health and wellbeing!

Identical Twins:  Pinpointing the Impact of Environment on Epigenetics

Because identical twins develop from a single zygote, they have the same genome. This removes genetics as a variable telling scientists that the differences they observe between the individuals are caused almost solely by environmental factors. Recent studies have shown that many of these environmentally induced differences are acquired via the epigenome.
