The Epigenetics Syndrome
You’ve certainly heard about DNA or genetics. It’s the scientific explanation for traits that are shared with members of your family and other humans. It’s called “The Genome Project”. The project ended in 2003.*
There was one problem: there was lots of “genetic stuff” left over after the genome was identified. Researchers concluded it was the inconsequential “trash”.
New Research Shows – the Extra Stuff Wasn’t Trash, After All
It’s the Epigenome and it does Epigenetics Manapulation
Epi means (in Greek): Above. Epigenome literally means: Above the Genome. Learn more »
The Epigenome dynamically responds to the environment by changing DNA. Epigenetics is the mechanism that allows the body to adapt to the environment by regulating genetic expression to adapt for:
- Diet (everything you eat, drink, breathe and/or rub on your body)
- Behavior (Sleep, Smoking, Alcohol, etc.)
- Toxins (air, water, household cleaners, food additives and others; including medications)
- Exercise (too much or too little)
Are You Confused?
Think about the Epigenome working like your television:
The television set is the Genome (Your DNA).
The remote for the TV has buttons that turn it on/off; and others that control how much or little volume, tint, contrast, etc. That’s the Epigenome – above the genome.
One set of epigenetic instruction – Methyl Groups – turns genes on and off and the other epigenetic instruction – Histone Groups – control how much.
Here’s the Bad News:
Research suggests epigenetic action is a contributing factor in declining health and chronic disease. Learn more …
It would be nice if there was a pill. But, don’t hold your breathe. Research is underway, but it’s just beginning and, when you consider what the Epigenome does, it’s not likely that researchers will provide a suitable answer that stops adaptation.
Here’s the Good News:
The Epigenome can turn off the changes it makes as easily as it turns them on – if you regulate the environmental factors – stress, diet, behaviors and toxin – when you change the things you do.
You Can Stay or Become Healthy By Changing the Things You Do!
One of the easiest tools is modifying your diet.

People who are unable to identify, and modify, the environmental factors affecting epigenetic action often seek guidance from a Natural Health Consultant, or other professional, to help them help protect, improve their health.
These professionals can help uncover patterns that contribute to declining or failing health using holistic methods. And then, suggest and help implement a practical plan to support the body’s ability to heal itself. Often the plan involves natural remedies and modest lifestyle changes. Learn more …

Using Holistic Methods & Natural Remedies
In case you need a refresher about genetics: The Human Genome Project (HGP) was one of the great undertakings of our time. It was an international research effort to sequence and map all of the genes – together known as the genome – of members of our species, Homo sapiens.
Completed in April 2003, the HGP gave us:
- The ability, for the first time, to read nature’s complete genetic blueprint for building a human being.
- And, it explained how carefully orchestrated chemical reactions activate and deactivate parts of the genome at strategic times, and in specific locations, as an organism grows and develops.
