EpigenicsYour DNA is not your Destiny
Customized Wellness potential begins with what makes us each individually unique— our genetics, our DNA, our epigenetics.
Our genetics are fixed. The hard-wired DNA that we got from our parents are set. Fortunately, the expression of genetics is not. The expression of our genetics is the study of epigenetics. “Epi” is translated above. Therefore, epigenetic control literally can be translated to “control above the genes”. Epigenetics is the control of genetic expression without actual changes to the DNA sequence of the gene itself.
According to Bruce Lipton, MD, “Epigenetics control reveals that environmental information alters the read-out of the genes without changing the underlying DNA sequenced codes…From a single gene, epigenetic regulation can provide for 30,000 different variations of expression.”
What does this really mean…
Your DNA is not your Destiny. Epigenetics is the study of how our environment, our diet, and other daily lifestyle choices can change the very expression of our DNA.
