Defy your DNA Part 3! How a LSA Assessment can help…

As I have been writing about in my last 2 posts-  ‘Defy your DNA’ Part 1 & Part 2,  you have the power to change your DNA!

Today I want to focus on Health & Nutrition.

Here at Thermography for Health NY we have a tool called  LSA ( Limbic Stress Assessment)  which helps us pinpoint your body’s weaknesses.

Your body’s systems are designed to maintain good health and a general balance. But today’s physical, nutritional and emotional demands often overwhelm these systems and leave your body depleted of the resources it needs.

Our goal at Thermography for Health NY is to help decrease the stress in your body so your innate ability can kick in and work at it’s best.  This will help your body change its DNA.

The LSA system is made by a company called Zyto.  For this assessment you put your hand on a cradle.  It might not feel like much but this cradle is a form of bio-communication and it’s software system sends out digital frequencies into your hand.  These frequencies  from your galvanic skin response are measured and your body sends back digital signatures.

Next these signatures are analyzed in the computer and it shows us  what your weaknesses are.

This LSA assessment allows me to  put together a nutritional plan based on your own personal needs which will help balance your weakness and defy your DNA.

If you are interested in an exam or have any questions please call Thermography for Health at 212-973-9425.

It will help you be on the right path to defy your DNA!

Defy your DNA Part 2

As I mentioned last post, we have the ability through our lifestyle choices, to turn on genes that promote health and turn off those that promote illness and disease.  These switches are called the epigenome.

Our epigenome responds to 3 factors:

Nutrition

Toxins

Stress

All of these things are within our control and are affected by our lifestyle choices.

The science behind this have been proven by Dr. Dean Ornish.  Dr. Ornish has completed some amazing studies about the epigenome and he’s actually scientifically proven that by modifying our lifestyle we can turn off the expression of disease-causing genes.

Dr. Ornish published the first study showing that improved nutrition, stress management techniques, walking and psycho-social support all work together and can actually change the expression of over 500 genes in early stage prostate cancer.

You won’t believe how easy these lifestyle choices were-

-He incorporated exercise, yoga, and meditation for an hour everyday

-He had a social support network

- And he emphasized good nutrition (eating a low-fat diet based primarily on fruits, vegetables, beans, and vegetable protein.)

These are all things that are in our hands!

‘We are no longer victims of our genes, but masters of our fate.’ -Dr Bruce Lipton

Defy your DNA

As I mentioned in my previous post, Basics of Breast Cancer Prevention, we have the power to defy our DNA!

Many people believe that they cannot alter their genes and are just stuck with what they were born with. They believe that they are predisposed to get certain diseases that their parents or grandparents had.  This is far from the truth.

The more Scientists learn about the human genome, the less DNA looks like your destiny.

TIME Magazine recently published an article, Why your DNA isn’t your destiny,

which discussed a new science called Epigenetics.  Epigenetics reveals how the choices you make can change your genes and those of your kids.

Research has shown that DNA is just a blueprint.

We have the power to influence what we build with this blue print.  Each gene has over 30,000 variations that can be built.  We have the ability, through our lifestyle choices, to turn on genes that promote health and turn off those that promote illness and disease.  These switches are called the epigenome.

By mapping the epigenome and linking it with genomic and health information, scientists believe they can develop better ways to predict, diagnose and treat disease.

Stay turned to learn what effects the Epigenome and what you can do to defy your DNA!
