EPIGENETICS: THE NEW SCIENCE GENE REGULATION, OR, HOW YOU CONTROL YOUR DNA (59 min. )

EPIGENETICS: THE NEW SCIENCE GENE REGULATION, OR, HOW YOU CONTROL YOUR DNA

Ronald Peters, MD, MPH

The epigenome is the cellular material that sits on top of your DNA, telling your genes to switch on or off, to speak loudly or whisper. This mysterious cellular bio-energy network responds to messages sent from the surface of your cells and activates appropriate DNA activity. This is how stress, toxins, infections, and poor diet create inflammation and other conditions in your body that lead to chronic disease. Your DNA is the hardware and the epigenome is the software, which responds moment to moment to your thoughts, emotions and how you live your life.

EMPOWER YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM WITH MINDBODY MEDICINE

Webinar video by Ronald Peters MD

Your immune system is a vigilant internal army of trillions of cells working together in a complex web of communications and specialized cell function all designed to fight infection from viruses, bacteria, and parasites.

Not every child exposed to streptococcus in kindergarten gets strep throat. Not everyone who is bitten by an infected tic gets Lyme disease. About one percent of people who are infected with HIV retrovirus are able to suppress its effects without drugs and are called “elite controllers”. We have stopped the spread of flu viruses throughout our lives without a second thought, and probably not even a first thought.

Our fast food media is warning us daily about the fearsome coronavirus with no mention of the natural protective power built into each of us – the immune system.  They tell us “how much we should worry” again and again.  There is an epidemic of coronavirus and an epidemic of fear.

Extensive medical research has shown that chronic stress suppresses the immune system.  The corticosteroids that are released from the adrenal gland by fear are designed to prepare you for action to cope with the danger.  But if fear is sustained it becomes worry, anxiety and chronic stress which weakens the immune response.  There is an old saying, “what you fear you draw near”.

Fear echoes in our bodies by activating the sympathetic nervous system so we can fight or run to survive.  But you cannot run from a virus and if you sustain the fear in your mind you make yourself more vulnerable to infection.

Fear alerts us to the danger and then we focus on planning and preparations, thereby transforming fear into optimism and faith, both of which enhance the immune system.

This video will show you how to mobilize your powerful immune system using diet, nutrients, and exercise. And, perhaps most importantly, you will learn how your conscious and unconscious mind strongly influences immune activity.

TOXIC ENVIRONMENTAL POLLUTION: WITHIN AND WITHOUT

Mankind has polluted the rivers, oceans and lands of our earth. In like manner, we have polluted the blood, fluids and organs of our bodies. There is no safe place from toxins.
