What we consume, how we feel or think and the places we go, all have an affect on the environment of our body; in turn altering genetic expression. Food is arguably one of the strongest influences on our genome, able to switch on genes directly as a result of the compounds found in food. Our bodies are an ecosystem of microbial life, which is profoundly affected by the food we eat. As such we must be very careful what we add to our internal environment as bad foods create a toxic environment.

The outside of each cell is filled with chemical receptors that detect what is floating around it in the blood. These receptors transmit this environmental information into the cell which then alters it's behavior accordingly. For example, epinephrine is a neurotransmitter released by adrenal glands, when we perceive a threatening situation, such as being attacked by an animal. This chemical is recognized by the cells within the body, which increase their metabolic rate (energy output). This is part of the fight or flight response, providing us the energy to run or fight when we feel threatened.
The following article goes into extensive detail about how these biochemical interactions affect us and genetic expression. Additionally, this may explain what so-called junk DNA is for, which has heretofore baffled biologists that contend genes are only for creating proteins. Clearly if 98.5% of DNA is not used to synthesize protein, there is some other purpose for this material. Perhaps there is finally a contingent of open minded researchers willing to look past the scientific dogma of our age.
As a side note, nutrients are not the only way to alter genetic expression. How we define experiences in our lives, the mental structure created within the mind is the foundation behind emotional expression. Emotions have biochemical and electromagnetic components that both affect genetic expression. Biochemically genes are affected epigenetically via hormones and neurotransmitters. Electromagnetically genes are altered as a result of changes in the magnetic field produced by the heart; a piezoelectric liquid crystal oscillator. Positive emotions create coherent magnetic fields that reorient DNA, exposing more codons that affect body processes. This is the reason why what we believe has the power to alter our health and also explains the Placebo effect.

The mind is literally capable of reprograming genes by a technique of gaining knowledge and holistically integrating this information into a cohesive understanding. How we make sense the events of our life literally affect our emotions and health. There are huge implications to this emotional aspect of consciousness affecting the body, which I elaborated on in the following articles.

Ultimately, whether our genes are affected by emotions or the food we eat, the common theme in each case is knowledge and the mind. The better we are able to understand life and use our bodies with skill, the more healthy we will be. But ignorance is not bliss and it definitely doesn't aide us in the pursuit of good health.

Epigenomics and How Natural Nutrients Heal Genes
Since the emergence of epigenomics, which is the study of how epigenetic modifications affect the genetic material of cells or the entire organism, geneticists have discovered that the human genome is a lot more complex than they have ever imagined. For example, DNA sequencing technologies that are currently available to mainstream geneticists can only decode roughly 21,000 known genes that are involved in protein synthesis in the human body. This only decodes a very small percentage of the human genome.
The 21,000 known genes that are involved in protein synthesis make up nearly 1.5 percent of the human body’s DNA. This means that roughly 98.5 percent of the human DNA structure, which is often referred to as “junk DNA”, is yet to be decoded. However, certain advanced DNA sequencing technologies that aren’t available to mainstream geneticists have decoded the human genome beyond the 21,000 known genes.
The roles of genetic switches
Geneticists have discovered that the human genome consists of not only genes, but also a highly complex genetic switch system, composing millions of genetic switches. These genetic switches are used by the human body to turn genes on and off. So far, geneticists have found slightly more than 4 million switching sites, which only cover roughly 8.5 percent of the human genome.
Each of the millions of genetic switches in the human genome affects certain specific gene activity and expression. When these genetic switches are defected and not working in harmony with the other systems of the human DNA, it can lead to faulty gene activity, which can cause health problems.
Genetic switches, food toxins, environmental toxins, and electromagnetic pollution
There are many things that can cause genetic switches to not work properly. One of the most effective things is genetically modified organism (GMO). Certain geneticists believe that the unnatural genetic materials in GMO can interfere with the natural functions of genetic switches in the human body. This is why GMO has been linked to all sorts of health conditions, including but not limited to infertility, birth defects, immune disorders, growth problems, premature aging, and cancer.
Besides GMO, food toxins, environmental toxins, and electromagnetic pollution can also interfere with gene activity and expression. Electromagnetic pollution is very effective at disharmonizing the natural frequencies of the human body. To learn about how electromagnetic pollution harms your body, read my informative article titled Frequency Healing and Electromagnetic Pollution.

How natural nutrients heal genes
Certain scientific studies have shown that by “tweaking” the epigenome of an organism using nutrients, they can reverse damages done to the genes of that organism. Other scientific studies have found that the way an offspring is raised and nurtured can affect the offspring’s genes in positive and negative ways.
The epigenome is just as critical to the development of humans as is the genome. For example, by changing the diet of genetically fat and yellow agouti mice to one rich in methyl donors, found in onions, garlic, and beets, researchers have found that they could change the offspring to slim and brown mice. By epigenetic intervention, they had modulated the critical agouti gene, dramatically changing the mice’s offspring. Nutrition was responsible for dimming the gene’s deleterious effects, from fat and yellow mice to mice that are normal, slim, and brown. (source: Eversole, Finley.

Epigenomics is still somewhat new but it is already showing some amazing potential for healing all sorts of health conditions. With more research in epigenomics and better understanding of how genes work, geneticists will soon be able to reverse cancer, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, and other “incurable diseases”.
To be able to unravel the secrets of genes and DNA, scientists and geneticists will need to study the linguistic structure and electromagnetic property of DNA. They will also need to study the language of the living energy codes of matter, which is made of light, sound, frequency, and vibration. For an interesting article about the language of matter, read my article about frequency and vibration.

Epigenetics: How Does Your Mind Reprogram Your Genes?
(WakingTimes.com) The source of today’s health problems does not come from our genetic blueprint but from how our cells interpret this blueprint and subsequent directions from the mind to the body. This is the underlying theory of the emerging science of epigenetics, which asserts that changing your health may be as “simple” as changing your thoughts and beliefs.
Below, internationally-renowned Dr. Joseph Mercola shares a video of Bruce Lipton, an American developmental biologist and author of numerous books, explaining epigenetics and how your thoughts, and the thoughts of those around you, can directly influence the state of your health.
