We have talked about diet, stress, thinking positive and believe in this BLOG. These influence our environment and causes our genes to either activate or deactivate like turning a light ON or OFF. This switching of genes changes our DNA programming and may improve our health or lives or may cause illnesses and unhappiness. Our epigenetics react to what they “see” in our environment. The switching is their way of coping with change. Sometimes it works and we get better and sometimes it doesn’t work and we get sick. It is not the old DNA model we were told about. The old model said we got our parents genes for better or for worse and we were stuck with them. We do get our parents DNA as well as some of their epigenetics. DNA is basically unchangeable throughout our lives. Epigenetics can be changed by us. It is sometimes not easy to break old habits and eat better or to lower our daily stress or to think positive instead of negatively or to believe and cause a placebo effect instead of a nocebo effect. If we really try and change our lifestyles, we can be healthier without drugs. There are no bad sise effects of eating a healthy diet. We just get healthy. Try it, you might like it and the effect it has on you as a person.
