Welcome to a new day in personalized healthcare
Biology is no longer destiny. Our DNA doesn’t determine our health and disease prospects, as geneticists once believed. According to the new science of epigenetics, the vast majority of our genes are fluid and dynamic—and their expression is shaped by what we think and what we do. Our genetic profile may signal an inherited vulnerability to a disease, but our choices and behaviors determine whether these genes will be switched on or off. Each of us can influence our genes to create optimal health and longevity.
“Over the past four decades, my friend Dr. Kenneth R. Pelletier has devoted his professional life to the study of what constitutes health and wellness. . . . In concert with my own work over these decades, [he has led] us to seek for what each of us can do to make healthier choices. Epigenetics now offers us the promise of far more specific health choices tailored to the special needs of each individual according to the unique characteristics of their genome.”— Dr. Andy Weil
Deva Premal & Miten, meditative spiritual musicians whose albums have topped the New Age charts throughout the world for the last two decades, hosted a live chat at Facebook with Ken in June 2018. They shared their experiences of the profound healing effects of chanting mantras and discussed his research into the ways that this can happen, and how lifestyle changes can actually switch genes on and off.
