Playing Your Epigenetics

I have used the piano analogy before but it’s a great one to demonstrate a point. We all have pretty much the same hardware (the Piano) but we the software (how we play the piano) differs greatly. Even in identical twins where the hardware is identical, the played songs are very different. One twin can get cancer while the other is cancer free for life. The most important work of this century will be helping people really understand how food (nutrients) affects (plays) our genes (piano). I am convinced our health is the sum total of all the notes we have played in life. We can change how we play the piano and improve our lives but some basic influences will stick with us. Health is like a sweet sounding piece of music. We all want it! Few of us get it because we never learn how to play the piano properly so all we do is make noise. Do you play music or make noise?


Are You In or Out of Tune with Your Body?

Epigenetics is like a piano, when it’s in tune and an experienced player is at the keyboard, it produces beautiful music. If it is out of tune, no matter who is playing it, it will produce noise. Our bodies are like pianos. When we keep them in tune, we are healthy and happy. When they are out of tune, we are sick and unhappy. Epigenetics is a system that plays are genes based on environmental influences. If those influences are healthy, our bodies respond in a healthy way. When they are not healthy our bodies respond in an unhealthy way. We are in control! Environmental influences that put us in or out of tune are: diet, exercise, though, beliefs and toxins. The toxin part we all understand but the others have just as strong an influence on us as toxins do. Decide today to tune your body and keep it in perfect harmony.
