Many of you have asked about the book behind this BLOG. It can be gotten for $3.03 on Amazon.
If you haven’t read it yet, Do so now! Get the history behind epigenetics and its influence on our health. The back of the book contains hundreds of references. Do your own research. Americans are getting sicker by the day. Modern medicine doesn’t have the answers obviously. Only you can change your health and your families. This book arms you with information that enables you to research and determine what changes are correct in your life and diet.

This will be my last BLOG on here. It has been fun and educational. To all of you that told me it helped cure a decease of a loved one or yourself…thanks. There is a ton of material in this BLOG to go through and my book “Food for Thought, An Epigenetic guide to Wellness”, is available in hard cover, paperback and eBook from both Amazon and Barnes and Noble. The eBook is my favorite because it lets me set bookmarks and highlight information. There are over 200 references in the book. This is a great start to doing your own search on health. I have enjoyed the years of doing this BLOG and thank the thousands of readers I have. It is time to move on to other projects. I am still doing my travel in Europe BLOG for those planning a trip. Good health to all my readers. Don’t believe the TV commercials, they are designed to sell you processed foods. Get to know your local farm markets. Enjoy your food again.

How does this programming work? It’s a lot like computers. Computers have operating system code that benefits all the programs running and does common functions like clean-up and printing. Then there are normal programs that can do anything from spreadsheets to movie making. Epigenetics works a lot like this. The operating system code is what makes each cell a certain type (e.g. blood cell, skin cell, hearty cell, brain cell, etc.). Epigenetics turns on certain genes and off others making the cell react like the type it is becoming. Once done any cell divisions will be this type as well. There is epigenetics that runs the cell (this is the same from the lowest life forms, through plants to animals). This programs cell division, nutrient intake, waste explosion, etc. But cells are living thinking entities that have to change and react to their environments. They do this through epigenetics. What we eat, how we think, our hormones all cause epigenetic changes that can be good or bad for us. They are not trying to make us sick but react to something in their environment. This is how we change along with Earth’s changes and evolve. What we eat can be so different from what we ate 100 years ago (processed foods) that our cells do things that cause disease.
All of this is happening within each cell of our bodies. There are more cells in each of us than animals on our planet. Think about that! We are a living thinking reacting community of cells. If our cells get in trouble, we get in trouble. Our cells also talk to each other through epigenetics. This form includes messages that can affect nearby cells or travel the body to distant cells. Hormones are a good example of this. Our brain produces them and cells all over our body react to them. Puberty causes massive changes to our cells and their functionality allowing us to become sexual and procreate.

Everyone wants great sex! It is a part of our inner most brain. Modern society with our poor diets and lack of exercise and stress can cause our sex drive to move into low gear. How do we get it back in high gear? Diet is important since cholesterol can block veins and cause a man to be impotent. Exercise keeps us in shape as well. The Therapy Book lists the top ways to keep your sex drive in high gear.
They list the top ten things we can eat to keep us on track sexually:
- NUTS AND SEEDS
- BLACK RASPBERRIES/BLACKBERRIES
- GINSENG TEA
The only one I disagree with is eggs! They are high in cholesterol. Go to the link above to read what each of these does. Diet is not just about losing weight but being healthy and enjoying a great sex life. Happy eating!

Dr Greger says YES! Most diseases are avoidable! Eating right, not being obese and not smoking cut our risk of chronic disease by 78%! Think what that means. Our healthcare drops in cost drastically. Our cost of health care is reduced drastically. We live longer and our last 20 years on Earth are more enjoyable. Do you want to be active and enjoy your kids and grandkids or be unable to walk or do anything and be bed ridden with a disease? It is your choice. Every major study shows the same results. When I talk to most doctors about this, they say yes a vegan diet will keep you healthy but no one wants to give up meat so I don’t say anything. This reminds me of when I was younger and at an annual physical with my doctor. I asked him about smoking. He said it’s not unhealthy if it was more people would be dying. He was a smoker and is now dead of lung cancer. How many people have to die before we learn?
Eat right and stay healthy.
