Bruce Lipton, author of The Biology of Belief, is one on my personal heroes. I love to listen to him as he passionately presents the solid science disproving the traditional theory of genetics. The long held belief that your genes control your destiny is erroneous. They do not. YOU DO!

This emerging field called Epigenetics is changing everything we believed about disease. For example, if you have inherited a gene for diabetes, Alzheimer’s or breast cancer, you control whether or not you will suffer from these conditions.

Your cells are responding to the stimuli from their surroundings. These “environmental signals” actually control every cell in your body and thus the genes within those cells. Our genes have no power at all unless they are switched on or off by these signals, which are controlling our well-being—and thus our spiritual, emotional and physical destiny.

So what are “environmental signals”? Two things: toxins and thoughts.

Toxins—Some of the most dangerous toxins we face today come from the air we breathe and the foods we eat. Heavy metals, radiation, chemicals and pesticides can activate a gene for a particular disease.

Thoughts—Our positive or negative thoughts. Negative thoughts and emotions are heavy-duty toxins. Anger, worry, anxiety, fear and guilt stress the body and create too much of the hormone cortisol, which can trigger unwanted genes.

Follow these steps and take control of your life!

1. Cleanse Properly

Understanding the Body Ecology Principle of Cleansing is essential. Certain foods, herbs and supplements and detoxification therapies like colon hydrotherapy help cleanse the toxins on a cellular level. Guidelines for a healthy protocol can be found at http://bodyecology.com/articles/be-cleanse.php

2. Build a Strong Immune System with Fermented Foods

80% of your immune system is in the lymph tissues in your gut. It is imperative to keep sending in a constant supply of microscopic warriors to replace the beneficial microbiota that reside there. Try fermented foods like cultured veggies, coconut and milk kefir, yogurt, probiotic liquids, miso, tamari, and natto.

3. Avoid Sugar

Sugar feeds pathogenic organisms, weakens your immune system, and depletes your body of the energy to fight against toxins and toxic invaders.

4. Take Adaptogens

These herbs alter how you respond to stress. Try Reishi Mushroom, Chaga Mushroom, Eleuthero(Siberian Ginseng), Rhodiola, Holy Basil or Ashwagandha.

5. Tap the Power of Infinite Love and Gratitude

Flood your cells with an environment that will keep those harmful, inherited genes quiet. Raise your vibration through positive affirmations, laugher, yoga, meditation, massage, music, and moments of absolute stillness.

We are not victims of our genes but creators of our own destiny!
