Doctor James on Health and Wellness

Common sense answers to your most burning health questions

Genes are not your fate!

Posted by doctorjames on July 13, 2008

Here is a really cool link from Dr. Dean Ornish on how genes are not our fate! There seems to be a growing body of evidence linking gene expression to environmental inputs. It is possible even with a predisposition to a certain type of cancer (family inherited gene) that you can turn the gene on and off with nutrition and exercise! WOW!!!! Now, if that does not give you hope…nothing will!

So, check out this link to a 3 minute video by Dr. Ornish.

Another distinguished scientist named Bruce Lipton Ph.D. has been talking about this for a number of years. Genes are not static…they are dynamic and we can change them by making changes in what we choose to do with our body and what we choose to put in it.

One has to remember that genes are only in our bodies to code for a certain protein. If that protein is no longer needed, then the gene turns off! Remove the offending substance and the gene becomes inactive! What a concept! There is so much more to healing then we will ever know, but taking some steps every day towards a long path to better health will definitely be a good start.

And, always remember…chronic stress ruins our health and can turn on the genes responsible for making some of these proteins. Please try to limit what “controls” you! When you let go, you will be amazed at the transformations your body makes…try it for one day…don’t let anything bother you…don’t get “worked” up. See how you feel at the end of the day. I promise you will feel great! Remember, chronic stress inhibits neuronal cell growth…not a good thing…

Till next time…

P.S. Sorry I have not written for quite some time…we just had a newborn baby boy who is now 3 months old and sleeping much better…so, it frees me up a bit to get back to sending out quality info!
