I really believe today you’re going to learn some simple and encouraging insight as to what role genetics play in your health.
The truth is, we often use our genetics as an excuse as to why we cannot lose weight and why we are experiencing sickness and disease. While it does play a role in our health, we need to know that even though people may be predisposed to specific genetic mutations it doesn’t mean it has to determine our state of health.
Genetic predisposition does not mean you are predestined to have a particular health issue!
This is great news!
Whatever your genetic makeup may be, you have the power to control your genes and the ability to turn them off and on.
Think of your genes like a loaded gun. You have bullets (genes) in the chamber and as long as you don’t pull the trigger the genes will never fire. An unhealthy lifestyle and environmental toxins “pull the trigger” causing the undesirable genes to “turn on”.
Our bodies work for us not against us. We need to put the power and control back into the hands of the person. My journey to overcoming cancer and staying healthy under Dr. Raymond Hilu helped me to discover that well over 90% of all disease is lifestyle, not genetics. Even if a particular disease runs in your family line, everything we have talked about in this course are preventative measures we can take that has the ability to in fact break the cycle of genetics.
Your genes don’t determine your destiny!
Medical analysts are now discovering that genes actually play a small part in overall disease. Genes are controlled by both internal and external factors such as: our thoughts, stress, what we eat, social connections, level of mental and physical activity, exposure to microbes and environmental toxins, according to Mark Hyman MD. All of these factors are like switches that turn our genes off and on and determine which proteins are expressed. The expressed proteins trigger signals of disease or health.
The most important thing you can do to control your genes and make them work in your favor is eat healthy and exercise. Our genes express themselves according to the environment they live in.
So, what kind of environment are you creating for “genetic expression”?
