What is Epigenetics?

Have you ever believed you just had “bad genes”?  I know I  have held that destructive belief in the past.  Last year, after many years of continued puzzling symptoms, doctors visits with no answers, and basically dead ends, I was diagnosed with Lupus.  After much suffering and no answers, this actually came as somewhat of a relief…. Just to know what I was up against.

Along with these tests that confirmed a Lupus diagnosis, I also had my genetics tested.  I quickly became very intrigued and fascinated by genetics…

Since then, I have had the great opportunity to study under some of the world’s top Epigenetics doctors to better understand my own body and so I can begin to help YOU optimize your health as well by understanding your genetics.

What I have found with my own genetics is so profound and has answered so many questions and made everything about my personal health challenges much more clear… and even more than providing some answers to “why”, IT HAS GIVEN ME HOPE and answers to “what I can do about it”.  Western Medicine says diseases like Lupus are not curable.  But Epigenetics now tells us that we have much more power over our health than we’ve ever realized before and helps us unlock the very personalized keys to not only health, but OPTIMIZED and LIMITLESS health.

So What is Epigenetics?

Sounds complex I know, and it really kind of is…… but simply translated Epigenetics means “above your genetics”.  The science of Epigenetics is the study of how DNA dynamically interacts with the environment and the driving force of how our DNA activates and expresses.

Epigenetics assists us to understand how things like our diet, nutrition, environment and other lifestyle factors influence our very personalized health outcomes.

We are all very bio-individual and nothing proves this more than our unique genetic code.  I view this as our “Health Code” as it holds the keys to understanding or own unique health needs.  When we understand our genes as a part of a complex human system, we can then understand how to strategically influence optimal gene expression through lifestyle choices to make genetic pre-dispositions virtually irrelevant as we adapt and thrive under the environmental pressures of our modern world.

I am now offering in-depth Epigenetics & Human Potential Services.  This will include genetic testing, interpretation, lab testing and coaching to help you optimize all areas of your health and life such as:

I no longer believe that some people just have “bad genes”.  Our DNA just gives us massive insights into our health.  But Epigenetics is what shapes our health future.
