“Epigenetics has shown that our genes are in fact controlled and manipulated by how our minds perceive and interpret our environment…. we can change many things about the way we are, including our health, by changing how we interpret events & situations which happen to us.” Dr. Bruce H. Lipton, cell biologist and lecturer, is an internationally recognized leader in bridging science and spirit. A former professor at the University of Wisconsin Medical School and the Stanford School of Medicine, Lipton was a lifelong atheist until his discoveries about the way cells function convinced him that God does exist.
Author Dawson Church published works on Epigenetics in respect to healing. Citing hundreds of scientific studies, he shows how beliefs and emotions can trigger the expression of DNA strands. He focuses on a class of genes called Immediate Early Genes or IEGs. These genes turn on within a few seconds of a stimulus. They can be triggered by thoughts or emotions. Many IEGs are regulatory genes turning on other genes that affect specific aspects of our immune system, such as the production of white blood cells that destroy attacking bacteria and viruses. His writing confirms Epigenetics influences our health every day. He coined the new term “Epigenetic Medicine” to describe healing techniques with epigenetic effects. He also summarized the science behind the infant fields of Energy Psychology and Energy Medicine, both of which offer promising epigenetic medical therapies.
“Just like a single cell, the character of our lives is determined not by our genes but by our responses to the environmental signals that”
We cannot control the events or circumstances of life, but we can control our reactions. Controlling the reactions is the difference between healthy minds and bodies and sick and disease prone minds and bodies.
American Medical Association – Research finds that stress is a factor in 75 percent of all illnesses and diseases that people suffer from today.
The American Institute of Stress – Research shows that 98% of mental and physical illnesses come from our thought life.
The American Institute of Health estimates 75-95 percent of all visits to primary care physicians are for stress-related problems stemming from toxic thinking.
Dr. Bruce H Lipton states 98 percent of diseases are related to lifestyle choices – our thinking. Lipton is a cell biologist recognized for bridging science and spirit. A former professor at the University of Wisconsin Medical School and the Stanford School of Medicine, Lipton was a lifelong atheist until his discoveries about the way cells function convinced him that God does exist.
Harvard’s Medical School’s Mind-Body Institute, Dr. Benson’s research confirms DNA changes shape according to our thoughts. According to Benson, negative thinking leads to stress, which affects our body’s natural healing capacities. Toxic thinking wears down the brain and body.
