Changing your biochemistry

Contrary to what we previously believed, our genes are not fixed. The study of epigenetics proves that our genes are actually fluid, flexible, and highly influenced by our environment.

And here’s the best news, just because you have a genetic predisposition for x, y, and z, doesn’t mean those genes will actually express themselves.

External triggers like nutrition, environment, exercise, positive or negative thoughts, and emotions literally affect your DNA.

So what truly runs in your family: heart disease and diabetes, or donuts and sausage?

How about gratitude and appreciation, or belittlement and abuse?

Change your thoughts, change your behaviors.

Change your behaviors, change your biochemistry.
