In a simple explanation, Epigenetics is the study of biological mechanisms that switch genes on and off. What does this really mean for you?
The body is made up of Cells. Instructions for cells are in our DNA. The order of the DNA is what gives the DNA specific instructions that carry out life instructions. Genes are in specific orders that give instructions for the body to build specific proteins – which trigger certain biological actions.
Epigenetics is the influence from and individual’s lifestyle on the chemical modifications around genes. Where you live, what you eat, your stress levels, your exercise all affect your individual epigenetic structure.
Some Genes have a predisposed nature to specific illnesses. This means that your lifestyle effects if your genes can switch the genes from a healthy state to a diseased state, and visa versa.
Epigenetics is reversible. What if you could keep the genes good states and eliminate the bad? Idea is that this could cure diseases!
With your personalized, individual report, you will have very specific instructions for what lifestyle changes could help switch the genes back to the healthy states.
