News Flash: We are not slaves to our DNA!
by Theresa Haney
Your body is pure intelligence, an operating system that rivals no other. Every cell contains a legacy of information woven into your DNA. Scientists now tell us we have the power to effect the expression of our DNA by mindfully curating our environment. What you think, what you believe and what you eat all have an effect on whether particular genes turn on or off.
Personal and cultural belief systems are handed down from generation to generation and become coded into your DNA through storytelling and bio-intelligence. The energy with which stories are told, whether fearful or loving, impact the degree of belief. What you digest, literally and figuratively, is the driver of your life. Foods that stimulate health and thoughts that give rise to positive emotions can turn around illness and disease.
According to Hering’s Law of Healing "We heal from the head down", meaning that before any healing can occur we must believe that we can heal and "We heal from within out" by allowing the body to cleanse by eliminating toxins through the skin.
The new science of epigenetics tells us that our environment plays a far greater role than we have ever thought. They have discovered that your genes dance with your awareness and your beliefs become your biology!
The genomic revolution opens a new window into why your body does what it does and how you can work with your genes, rather than against them. As science advances, you will be able to recommend diets, lifestyles, drugs and nutrients that help maximize genetic potential and minimize risk of disease and obesity.
‘Your mission, should you choose to accept it’ is to take the wheel and drive into the sunset in happiness and health through every choice you make.
