Lifestyle and Environment
Our lifestyle and environment influence our state of health at many
different levels impacting our quality of life.

Epigenetics is the science exploring changes in gene expression and its role in disease and illness. Somethings we cannot control,
however, we can adapt our lifestyle or environment to remove toxins that inadvertently affect our gene expression.
Epigenetics explains why one person will be affected by something and another person will not.
We are all individuals.
One person may get headaches, another asthma, another insomnia, another depression.
Toxins can affect our gene expression and they are present in our food, water, air, personal care and cleaning products, home, gardening and car items.
Toxins allowed to circulate in our bodies can act as hormone disruptors and are stored in our body fat ready for recirculation when released.
We cannot possibly avoid all toxins, but with a little understanding and knowledge, we can certainly make better healthier choices.
We can choose filtered water, organic foods or natural products.
We can also choose to limit the use of plastics, dust our homes or recycle.
Mould is an example of a toxin that may be present in our homes that can have detrimental effects on our health.
Often signs and symptoms are not related back to these toxins but when removed can make an obvious shift in health.
Remember .... these toxins may take many years to build up in the body system before you even realise the impact they have on your health.
