- Everything that you ingest into your body has to be metabolized out.
- Toxicity from the environment can influence how the genes tighten or unwind themselves to express different characteristics in different settings.
- Inflammation is a part of all illnesses.
- Any inflammation creates biochemical consequences. When that’s within the brain, it will affect the release of neurotransmitters and the uptake of neurotransmitters. As soon as that’s disrupted in any way, psychological consequences can occur.
- All the biochemical reset buttons that would help you cope with any number of stressors and inflammation are within your sleep.
- Choose natural cleaning and skincare products.
- Eat a personalised diet.
- Make sure to get enough good quality sleep.
- Consider using therapeutic tools such as red lights.
- Keep your physical structure in check.
- Supplement with inflammation-lowering complexes.

“When DNA was discovered we thought that genetics was the key to everything. But we’ve since learned that it is lifestyle factors that really influence the way our genes express themselves.”
“Nutrition seems to be religion these days, but the more natural state your foods are, the more likelihood is that your body has evolved and adapted to digesting and processing it, and therefore, the inflammatory cost will be less.
