Your Genetic Encoding & The Food You Eat

Your Genetic Encoding & The Food You Eat

by Dr. Ana

Send the following information to if you want to discover your unique abilities in life–the abilities that will help you achieve your Ideal Scene.  Tammy will start a simple program with you that will get you several steps into knowing what your genes say, where your gene-power can take you, and what food your genes say you should eat.

Info to Tammy: 1. List your weaknesses. 2. Name any symptoms of poor health. 3. Describe your lifestyle (“A Typical Day-In-The-Life-Of”).  4. Think about your dreams, desires, and goals in life & 5. Write down your ideal scene for job, relationship, and location.

What started me down this path of talking about Unique Abilities In Life is that I opened an email from Acupuncture Today and saw a webinar on nutrigenomics.

I logged in.  By the end of the “training” I was thoroughly confused!

I searched a few websites to find a basic-level definition and found a slide show on nutrigenomics and cancer that’s informative and easily understood.  While there’s a focus on cancer, the information is applicable to all people both healthy as well as suffering from any chronic or acute illness.

Having never encountered this term before, I thought a definition would be a good first order-of-business.  Here’s what I found

The goal of nutrigenomics is: To research food; to research the way nutrients react with specific genes; and then use that knowledge to develop a specific food selection algorithm for each person.

Once reached, that goal would supposedly become the gold standard for identifying which personalized food choices would optimize your health!

Already an entire industry of products has cropped up in support of nutrigenomcs. You can get an on-line education in the “field” of nutrigenomics. You can drink  your perfectly-produced-for-you health. You can even get your pet into it!

But listen, follow me down this primrose path and you’ll arrive at a place on the subject of genes and nutrition that you can use every day, right now! You don’t have to get an education in nutrigenomics, and you don’t have to buy any books, products or supplements.

Chinese medicine has used food to heal for lo-these-thousands of years,  codified it into a study called “Eating According to the Five Flavors” , and “Food as medicine: “The Energetics of Food.”

In Chinese medicine there is the aspect of Shen to every organ.  I could make a case for shen being the same as genes.  Shen is the totally intangible, yet strongest, part of what makes us unique human beings–it drives us forward in life–and that sounds a lot like DNA!

We are experts at working with Shen and our  “Ideal Scene” Program uses the tools of Chinese Medicine to activate the most personal aspects of your life in order for you to gain optimum health and achieve your Ideal Scene.

Unbelievable health, happiness and success in life is the result.
