Using Foods and Drinks to Improve Epigenetics
Whether you seek comfort, joy, healing or happiness…
what you want to feel can be supported
by what you consume.
By making positive choices over and over again, you begin to flip-on your “happiness genes”. They begin to become a natural expression of who you are. Your body begins to run better because your genes have changed the way they are expressed. In the beginning you may not notice a significant change in your emotions or how you feel. However, the more you direct your emotions and consume supporting foods and beverages, the more natural it becomes. One day you can wake up and realize WOW, you are changed.
Let me explain this further…
Natural Emotional Care is partially based on a field in science called epigenetics. It’s a big word, but stick with me here. In high school biology you learned about genetics and that genes determine the color of our hair, the color of our eyes, how tall we are, whether our hair is curly or straight, etc. Those are the genetics that we are born with.
Epigenetics is the study of how our genes behavior and expression changes based on our life experiences and environment. Think of your genetic code like your hardware (the computer you are born with), and your epigenetics as the software (the programs that can run into problems, be switched out or upgraded).
Your genetics do not change. However - what you eat and drink, your life experiences, stresses, how you perceive things, and your overall environment; ALL affect the turning 'on' or 'off' of your genes, how they behave and how they are expressed.
This is important because it can impact your emotions, as well as determine whether you get certain diseases or not. It can also affect the genetic make up of future generations, and the challenges that they encounter.
Science proves you have great power to change your life based on what you consume, lifestyle choices, and your thoughts & perceptions.
This is not just a theory. This has been proven not just by mice in a lab, but by taking entire groups of people, entire cultures and studying the children of previous generations to see the effects of epigenetics in action.
In truth, what you eat and drink, and the emotional experiences that you have can contribute to flipping on or off genes in your body. This affects your odds of happiness and of getting or healing a disease. Just like a light switch – these genes can be turned on or off.
This is so exciting because it proves you have greater power than ever imagined to change your life based on natural emotional care - what you consume, lifestyle choices, and your thoughts and perceptions.
Choose what foods and beverages to consume and help support the emotions you choose to feel.
