How beliefs affect health. Practical thoughts on Epigenetics and how to alter your genes.
Do beliefs matter? How beliefs affect health? Do beliefs create reality and impact our physiology. Join us as we attempt to have a short and highly useful discussion that explores the research outlined in several books to answer the question: how can epigenetics influence our health? Or put another way how to alter your genes expression through choosing our thoughts, beliefs, and values. Many scientists have suggested that the importance of belief extends beyond faith, church, life, values, spirituality, and love. Dr. Bruce Lipton in his book, The Biology of Belief, puts forward the research that supports a New Biology which leaves behind the defeatism of genetic and parental programming as well as survival-of-the-fittest Darwinism. You may ask the question - Do I have good genes? Perhaps the better question to ask is, regardless of what I believe about my genes as represented by family health history - how can my genes be altered through choosing my beliefs, thoughts, and emotions? Dr. Lipton’s revolutionary research has uncovered the missing connections between biology, psychology, and spirituality. In Today's Podcast, we set ourselves the challenge to answer the following questions in our 30min commute. Epigenetics - how does it work?Epigenetics - why inheritance is weirder than we thought?How can epigenetics cure cancer or how we can avoid illnesses we believe are in the family?What thoughts can we choose in order to best support optimal health and healthy gene expression?
