Changing the physiology of your body through your perceptions!
Epi by definition is a prefix derived from the Greek preposition ἐπί meaning “above” or “outside”. In the science of genetics, epi is referred to as above genetic control or epigenetic control. Within consideration of these definitions, we have coined the prefix epi, short for EPIGENETIC(S). That said, to have a better understanding of epigenetics, we feel it is important that both epi and epigenetics be used throughout this website.
I am epi, YOU are epi, WE are all epigenetic!
Just as an engine has many mechanical parts and each part plays a role in the performance of that engine, there are many scientific parts to the epi (epigenetic) engine that contribute to the performance of your body. Even though many of these parts are relevant and may be referenced, we take focus on the overall performance of the epi engine rather than its scientific mechanical parts integrating Science of the West and spiritual wisdom of the East in practical ways so that you can understand and use them to enhance the performance of your daily life in healthy ways for the rest of your life. You do NOT have to be a scientist or have a medical background to understand this website or the benefits and detriments of epi. You only need to clear your mind, and awaken to your intuitive being and to the power in which you are and always will be – the power of epi - epigenetics.
"Now it appears that our diets and lifestyles can change the expression of our genes.
How? By influencing a network of chemical switches within our cells collectively
known as the epigenome." - NOVA’s Ghost in Your Genes (2006)
OLD SCIENCE - GENETIC CONTROL
“If your mother had it, grandmother had it, and great-grandmother had it, then you would have it, and there is nothing you can do.” We have been taught to believe in the scientific model of genetic control, and that the health and well-being of our bodies are predetermined and controlled by our genes. In other words, because genes control our bodies, all humans are victims of their genetic makeup. For example, if your family lineage shows a history of illness such as cancer, heart disease, or diabetes, then it is presumed that those genes were passed on to you, and you are then destined to having a high probability of developing the ailment, with no control over that genetic predisposition or its outcome. You are a victim of your genes. Think again!
"What we are now learning is that our genes are part of a larger flexible network. This is contrary to what we’ve been told about our genetic selves. Our genes aren’t fixed and rigid as most of us have been led to believe." – Dr. Sharon Moalem, Inheritance (2014)
NEW SCIENCE - EPI (EPIGENETIC) CONTROL
The new science of epigenetics has revealed that we are not victims of genetic control. Genes are merely “genetic blueprints,” and environmental and perceptional influences determine if these genetic blueprints are turned off or on. In other words, as an architect needs blueprints to build a building, genetic blueprints need an architect to activate those expressions. This activation can build and maintain the health and well-being of our bodies just as it can destroy and harm our bodies in damaging ways. Who is that architect? YOU are the architect, and your beliefs, memories (both good and bad), conscious, subconscious, and unconscious levels of mind change the physiology of your body through your perceptions for better or worst.
