With the power of nature and our epigenetics, why can’t our bodies adjust and keep us healthy? Nature takes millions of years to adjust to changes. Normally changes come slowly. When they o come fast they wipe out a major part of a species and those left need to adjust rapidly or go extinct. Both scenarios occur all the time. We are making changes to our bodies and environment at a very rapid degree. Our epigenetics tries to adjust but some of the changes cause conditions that can not be overcome! Take a diet that turns ON cancer genes and turns OFF tumor fighting genes. This makes it near impossible to fight the disease.
We have changed our environment in so many ways:
- Global warming
- Processed foods
- Not enough consumption of plants
- Stressful lives
- Negative thinking and beliefs
- Little or no exercise
This causes our bodies to be overwhelmed to the extent that our bodies become ill. All of these things are choices we all have. Make the right choice and you have a higher probability of health and extended life. Make the wrong ones and that probability drops rapidly. What choices do you make on the above items? How is your healthy? How many medications are you on? Choose wisely.

If our bodies are so smart and are programming each cell based on our environment, why are so many people getting sick? It’s because we are changing the environment so drastically in such a short period of time. Never before has our bodies had to deal with such drastic change. It is over powering. This causes disease and a failure of the cells in general. When the failure is massive, it causes death!
Think of how we have changed our environment in the last 100 years. We are eating much more animal protein and much less plant protean. Er are eating pesticides and preservatives because our food is packaged and not fresh. Our air is not clean and the ozone layer is emitting more harmful rays. As i this wasn’t enough, we are in a constant state of stress. Money, jobs, family, health; it all leads to a very stressful life style.
Stress, poor nutrients, chemicals and harmful rays cause massive epigenetic changes to our cells. In many cases it’s more than they can handle. This failure to handle the changes is called disease. What is interesting is we have a choice! We can eat differently, buy less processed foods, live a less stressful life, be happy with who we are and what we have. The choice is yours. Health or disease? What do you choose?

Belief actually switches on genes in our body that makes life changes! Dr. Lipton says knowledge is power. Lack of knowledge results in lack of power. Our genes do NOT control our lives. They don’t cause cancer or disease in our bodies. We cause disease in what we eat and what we believe! Dr. Lipton shows that the nucleus of our cells (which contain the genes) are not the command center of the cell as previously thought. He has removed the nucleus from cells and they continue to function normally. If you remove the brain from any living thing it dies! So the nucleus can not be in control of the cell.
We are a machine built of proteins. The proteins change shape (move) based on signals in our bodies. Movement is a basis of life! Our behavior is movement of a protein by a signal. The brain of the cell is the collection of signals acting on the cell. These signals cause changes or work within the cell. The nucleus is simply the repository of blue prints to build new cell parts. The environment (sound, sunshine, heat, food, thought, hormones, etc) cause the cells to do different things. If we cut off the environment the cell will have nothing to do. This is known as perception.
Genes associated with cancer need to be activated by the environment! The environment caused the cancer NOT THE GENE! Genes do not gives us cancer or disease. Perception (the environment does! Change your perception and you can change your cancer or disease. You are in control!What signal in your life activated a gene that was inactive for 35 years and gave you cancer?
Conventional biology textbooks have said that DNA goes to RNA which builds proteins that do things. In this view DNA is in control! But it is wrong! The Environment sends a protein signal to DNA that allows it to be read into RNA which builds the proteins that do things in our cells. So the environment controls our cells! This is known as epigenetics!
The environment can also change your genes called adaptive mutation. If you enter a stressful environment and don’t have the genes to deal with it, we modify our genes! If you place yourself in stressful environments all the time, your genes are re-written to adapt to stress. This can cause negative things to happen in your body. Move yourself out of the stress and you return to normal genes.
Cells are either in growth (positive) or in protection (negative). They can not be in both at the same time. If you are always in protection mode you are not growing and diseases will occur. Stress cuts off our immune system (it’s not needed if we are being chased by a lion). The strongest growth influence is not nutrients but LOVE!
WHAT IS YOUR PERCEPTION? More on this and Dr. Lipton can be found in my book!
Please watch this important video. It is one hour and nine minutes but will change what you believe about your health!

1) Belief and Epigenetics
2) Diet and Epigenetics
3) Thinking and Epigenetics
Two great examples of DNA vs. epigenetics are:
- Our DNA is like a computer’s hardware and epigenetics like its software. The environment (food, thinking and physical environment) is like data to the software. In a computer system the software uses the hardware instructions to accomplish its goals. It reads data and acts upon it to complete the original programmer’s ideas. In our bodies epigenetics uses the DNA instructions (genes) to accomplish its goals. The environmental conditions are data that causes the epigenetics to meet nature’s goals.
- Our DNA is like a musical instrument and epigenetics is like the musician. The sheet music is like our environment. A musician reads the music and uses his or her skills to play the instrument (hardware). In our bodies epigenetics uses environmental conditions to play our DNA. Just like some musicians may play well and others may play badly; our environment causes our epigenetics to either play well or poorly.
How can we tell what changes are good or bad for us?
