Epigenetics

“Switching on” optimal gene performance for health and wellbeing

 

We’ve all heard comments like, ‘oh she’s just lucky – she’s got good genes…’ but your genes aren’t static. Your lifestyle and environment can have a profound effect on the way your genes express themselves – switching ‘on’ or ‘off’ the mutations that can lead to conditions like cancer, heart disease, and type-2 diabetes.

Not only can these lifestyle-induced mutations wreck your health and shorten your life, but your genes, including any mutations, are passed down to your kids, grandkids and great grandkids, so they get to suffer too. Most people aren’t aware, however, that you can promote normal gene expression and reverse lifestyle-influenced mutations by minimising environmental triggers and tailoring your daily habits to your gene performance.

The science of epigenetics

Nourishment

Nourishment epigenetics

This covers the effects of all you expose your body to in terms of gene expression. It includes the quality of your food and water, how well you sleep, your breathing, whether you’re grounded and exposed to sunlight regularly, or living with high levels of electromagnetic radiation and other pollutants. We unpack these elements and change what we can to optimise your gene performance.

Movement

Movement epigenetics

I can’t over-emphasise the importance of regular movement (not just exercise) and understanding how to do it optimally. Movement is more important than exercise, as proven by the impact of sitting for long periods on heart health, fat absorption and fat storage. I’ll give you tips for including more movement in your day and if you have time to exercise, how best to go about it.

Mindset

It’s vital that you understand the profound effect on your wellbeing of how you view your “self” and your body, how your thoughts and feelings can support, or detract from, optimal health, and how to influence your life on an energetic level. This third pillar is crucial in optimising your potential for health and wellbeing and is arguably the most influential of the three pillars.
