Its not all in the genes

  1. 1. It’s not all in the Genes! Genetic diseases are most commonly inherited either from parents or blood relatives. Some genetic disorders occur in people without any family history of that particular health problem. This occurs due to genetic mutation during the development of the embryo or fetus. If you have a family history of genetic disorders like heart problems, diabetes, obesity, and inflammation, you run a higher risk of developing these diseases at some point in your life. However, this is not a sentence to a certain future dealing with a chronic disease. You have the ability to reduce the risk of these diseases by diet and lifestyle. Smoking, consuming excessive alcohol, intake of more pain killers and OTC drugs, and consuming excessive salt and sugar increase the risk of genetic or pre- disposed diseases. Simple changes now can lead to fewer problems later. Reducing excess sugar, sodium and fat, eating fresh foods, and adequately exercising (20-30 minutes 3-4 times per week) can significantly help minimize the risk of obesity, heart disease, and diabetes. Going organic and eating a balanced, plant based diet while leaving out processed foods also prevents diseases and boosts immunity. Eating a wide variety of fresh, unprocessed foods in the highest biological state generally should provide everything that is needed. Here are a few little known secrets about the healing power of foods:
  2. 2. - Almonds are a good source of vitamin E and fiber, and have healthy nutrients that are good for the heart. Almonds also reduce the risk of cancer. - Apples are one of the best cancer preventive substances. - Avocados are a source of beta-sitosterol, which is best at lowering cholesterol. - Beets, a good source of antioxidants, also lower the levels of LDL cholesterol. Beets also reduce the risk of lung and skin cancers. - Broccoli contains many cancer fighting substances. It is also a good source of potassium and beta carotene that lower the risk of heart disease. - Cherries are one example of foods that fight against genetic diseases. Eating organic, raw vegetables or fruits is an excellent way of reducing disease by boosting the immune system. The new cellular biology is confirming that the foods we eat, our spiritual beliefs, and the thoughts we entertain are a tremendous factor in how our genes express themselves. ____________________________________________________________ ___________ Dr. Fred Bisci is an organic and raw food nutritionist with over 40 years of experience helping people improve longevity and reduce the risk of diet related illnesses.
