Can You Manipulate Your Genes To Prevent Dis-ease-cibi

Thank goodness science is evolving and giving us proof that nutrition does in fact lead to improved health. With advancements is science we now know that we can manipulate and support the weak genes and even change our gene expression. You no longer have to feel like you could be a ”victim” of your grandparents’ genes. DNA testing, Epigenetics and Nutrigenomics represent the future of health care. They are empowering because they give you information about your genetic dispositions and how you can change the expression of those genes. Lets start with DNA testing. The Human Genome Project was a great feat of exploration supported by the National Institute of Health that began in 2003. Rather than exploring the cosmos, the research delved inward in an effort to map and sequence all the genes that made up a human being. So why should you be interested in this? Because that project has opened up the doors to a better understanding of what it takes to prevent and heal specific dis-eases. You have a significant amount of control over your health once you map out your genes. SNPs (pronounced snips) are common genetic variations that act as markers that are associated with certain dis-eases or metabolic patterns. Why guess when it comes to your health when you can discover what your body needs to function at its best. DNA testing requires a few spits in a plastic tube and thats it. How can a DNA test potentially help me? Age more slowly Experience a higher quality of life through prevention strategies Know EXACTLY which foods and nutrients you need to support your body. Turn down the dial on Inflammation that leads to Breast Cancer. Reduce your toxic burden by supporting your detox pathways. Understand your hormones and if they are metabolizing properly. Manage mental and emotional stress effectively. Epigenetics is the study of chemical reactions and factors that influence our genes. Those factors include our food, our lifestyle and our environment. Nutrigenomics is the actual study and science of how food can actually alter our gene expression to prevent or even ”cure” chronic dis-ease such as cancer. You can now view food as a ”farmacy” of chemical compounds that interact with your DNA in a positive or negative way. Will you ”feed the cancer or feed your body”? For example, sulforaphane in broccoli sprouts activates specific switches in your cells that influences hundreds of genes, one of them being a major detoxification enzyme. Curcumin inhibits the formation of Breast Cancer cells through the activation and suppression of certain genes. Dr. Dean Ornish has conducted many landmark studies demonstrating how food alters our genes. In one study, 1 group of adults was assigned to eat a high glycemic diet and the other group was assigned a low glycemic diet. After only 12 weeks, the high glycemic diet group had an increased activity of 62 genes that lead to dis-ease. The other groups had a decrease in 71 dis-ease causing genes. Prevention begins by understanding your genetic patterns and the foods that can strengthen the good genes and turn off the dis-ease causing genes. If you are on a healing journey, DNA testing and Nutrigenomics can help you target the most effective approach to healing your body.
