Many of us have heard the term epigenetics, but what is it? The literal meaning is “above” or “on top” of genetics. What that really means is external modifications to DNA that flip genes on or off. In layman’s terms, Epigenetics is the study and practice of how lifestyle can impact the expression of genes without altering the DNA.
This book was written to empower people to live a life beyond the genetic hand they were dealt.
Do you have a family history of heart disease, diabetes, or cancer? The old thinking of medicine was that you might inherit these diseases from your parents or grandparents. Epigenetics says that you, through lifestyle modifications, can potentially change their genetic expression to avoid these inherited traits.
In this book, you will learn:
The history of epigenetics
The role of the 4 pillars in genetic expression
The tenants of the 4 Pillars.
While the 4 Pillars of Epigenetic Change represent a small portion of the research being done on Epigenetics, we hope that the knowledge contained within these pages will be the beginning of your journey towards optimal health and wellness.
