WHAT IS EPIGENETICS?

We are standing at the start of a medical revolution. It began with the decoding of the human genome is 2003. We're at such an exciting point in history, where science and technology are enabling us more than ever to move beyond: "This is good for us." and towards "This good for me". It's called 'personalisation'. At last, we are able to personalise our healthcare and take into account our biochemical individuality.

Hi,

Epigenetics can help you reimagine your future, and create a personalised, integrated, innovative approach to your healthcare. Understanding your DNA and real-time biomarkers will help you make the right nutrition, environment and lifestyle choices to support your best self. 

Love, Dr. Heidi

We are moving from an era of “Is this good for us?” to “Is this good for me?".

What is epigenetics?

Epigenetics is the study of the biological mechanisms that can switch genes on and off.  Epigenetics is radically transforming the rigid concept of “my DNA is my destiny” and is showing us that our DNA is not actually our destiny. You have more power/control than you previously thought to sculpt your health! 

Personalising my optimal wellness and disease prevention starts from my DNA.

Hi,

'Epi' means 'above'. The 'epigenome' sits around the genome. The epigenome is made up of various molecules that attach to the outside of the genome like little 'tags’. These tags can change the 'messages' that get sent to our genome from the outside world. This is how the our nutrition, environment and lifestyle choices can change how our genome expresses itself. 
Personalisation starts with our DNA - our genetic code. Our full genetic code is called the 'genome' and it can be found in every cell in our body. When I was diagnosed with breast cancer, I did a lot of research into how I could've developed cancer. 'Epigenetics' finally provided me with many of the answers. 

When I got cancer, I asked myself how could my body let me down. When I received my test results, I knew that I had let my body down.

This knowledge is very empowering: we actually have the power to change our genome's expression by changing the molecules it is exposed to! Everything in our body is communicated via molecules; the food we eat, the environmental chemicals we expose our body to, the lifestyle we lead...even our emotions! By changing the expression of our genome, we can turn health and disease on or off. By making more personalised choices, you can literally “turn off” your predisposition to developing certain chronic lifestyle-related diseases such as diabetes, obesity, heart disease, and many cancers.

 In 2011, I did the DNAHealth, DNAEstrogen, DNADiet  and DNASport tests. I could see that I had genetic misspellings for the enzymes that were involved in my liver's metabolism of estrogen, as well as for oxidative stress and inflammation. All the tiny nutrition, environment and lifestyle choices that I'd made leading before my cancer diagnosis, had “turned-on” my predisposition for an estrogen-positive cancer. 

Epigenetics provided us with the answer as to WHY we developed estrogen-positive cancers.

My journey,

JoinCircles

Hi,

toward optimal health became much easier when I understood epigenetics. My nutrition, environment, and lifestyle (NEL) choices became more personalised and proactive because they are based on my unique DNA and my biochemistry. I was able to create a personalised supplement, diet, environment and lifestyle protocol based on my test results. I consider my DNA and biochemistry info when I make even the tiniest choice: "Should I use this shampoo? Should I not exercise today? What kind of antioxidants do I need? Do I need magnesium? Should I go to a smokey nightclub to watch my husband DJ?"

By making the right, personalised nutrition, environment and lifestyle choices you can support your best self.

The first step,

JoinCircles

Hi,

in harnessing the power of epigenetics is to delve into your uniqueness and understand key areas of your genetic code. You can do this by doing the relevant DNA and real-time biomarker tests. The genes our tests look at, only show your potential for biochemical imbalances. These are places in your genome that you can expect to find imbalances if you don't make the correct NEL choices for you.
Once you have your DNA and real-time biomarker results, you can start taking personalised action. You can start making NEL choices that support your uniqueness. We've made it easy for you by providing everything you need at www.JoinCircles.com. We've curated a shop of products that don't contain known DNA mutators, xenohormones, xenoestrogens, or carcinogens. We've based our criteria on the http://www.ewg.org/ well-researched database.
