If you still thought you were at the "mercy" of your own genetic code, here's the good news: this is not the case! In line with epigenetics (the science that studies how environmental factors outside DNA influence changes in the way genes express themselves), stem cells and even DNA can be modified through magnetic fields, by harmonizing the heart and by a positive mental attitude. Top researchers around the world have agreed that deterministic theory is an outdated concept.
Removing the victim mentality of one's own genes
The DNA we were born with is not the only determining factor for our health and well-being. Biologist Bruce Lipton discusses the important difference between genetic and epigenetic determinism in an interview with
"The difference between these two is significant because this fundamental belief called genetic determinism literally means that our lives, with their physical, mental and emotional aspects, are controlled by our genetic code. This kind of system of thinking portrays people as victims: if genes control the functioning of our lives, it means that our lives are controlled by factors that are beyond our control and over which we cannot intervene. This mentality leads to victimization and to the idea that diseases that occur in the family propagate to the next generations genetically. However, the dovehzile of laboratory research shows us that this is false."
Lipton's theory is confirmed by Carlo Ventura, professor and researcher at theUniversity of Bologna in Itala. Dr. Ventura has demonstrated through laboratory tests that stem cell DNA can be altered using magnetic field frequencies.
"It's like a time machine. You somehow progamate these cells in reverse to a state of uncertainty in which any kind of decision is somehow possible; even the decision to virtually become any kind of cell of the body. And just think about the potential alienation of this discovery."
He adds that two Nobel laureates have even discovered that "adult non-stem cells can be epigenetically reprogrammed back to a state from which they can give rise to neural, cardiac, skeletal, muscle, or insulin-producing cells."
DNA can be changed by intention
According to discoveries made at the HeartMath Institute in Boulder Creek, California, epigenetics encompasses much more than DNA, the environment and life experience. After two decades of study, researchers have found that factors such as love and appreciation or anxiety and anger also influence a person's imprint. In one experiment, the selected participants were able to modify their DNA through positive mental states.
"A subject from which three DNA samples were taken was asked to create cardiac coherence – a mental, emotional and physical state beneficial to balance and harmony – with the help of HeartMath techniques that use heart breathing and intentional positive emotions. The subject managed, as instructed, to intentionally exchange to a certain extent two DNA samples, leaving the third one unchanged."
The control group containing volunteers with low cardiac coherence could not modify the DNA.
We can have healthy cells through a diet of "quantic nutrients"..
If we want to feed our bodies at the cellular level (and not promote the disease), the hearthmath institute recommends a diet rich in "quantic nutrients". When we are stressed or have a negative state, our energy reserves are redirected from their important tasks to be used in regenerating or healing the body. We can counteract this cellular deprivation of energy by focusing mentally on a state of appreciation, gratitude and love towards our body. These positive emotions improve our energetic state and nourish our body, up to the cellular level reaching the DNA level. HearthMath called these positive emotions "quantic nutrients". So here's how important it is to cultivate positive feelings and emotions, throughout the day, but especially when faced with difficult situations!
