So, now that you have some insight on the way in which you can be at cause over your biology and neurology, is it possible to use some of this to manage one of the biggest causes of dis-ease of our time? Stress. By now, I am sure that you can guess that the answer is indeed a resounding YES!!Read more “Day Five: Making it count. Managing stress”
So, we’ve spoken about genes, the environment, and getting to the core – the cause. Is there more, that we have at our disposal, to use, in order to “show up” differently?

Evidence in neuroscience is showing that by shifting and moving, by thinking differently, we are able to “wire-in” new thoughts. As we discussed yesterday, this changes the neurochemistry and the genetic expression of the body. Performing tasks, and thinking in the same way, day in and day out hardwires only certain neuronal pathways.
So, you always thought : “I was born this way”, “It’s in my genes”, “I can’t change this”. Partly right. A lot of information and coding is in fact written in the DNA. However, new studies in the emerging field of epigenetics is showing that the environment is also very important, in determining HOW those genes are expressed. It is this environment, around the cells of the body, which is directly affected by your thoughts – which trigger the hormones and biochemistry we spoke about yesterday. The body is in fact, the most incredible apothecary in the universe – its chemistry can be changed in the flash of a thought!Read more “Day Three: It’s in your genes? How do we show up?”
The mind, the body and emotions are what we are born with – the instincts to think, care and experience. As we ‘grow up” we are conditioned to focus on the intellectual – the mind, at the expense of looking at our bodies and our emotions. Heres an experiment – close your eyes and think about something pleasant.Read more “Day Two : The mind, body and spirit? Changing your biochemistry”
Today, I start a 5 day blog that will explore the intriguing concept of mind and body and its effect of life and health in general. Join me as we look at some of this together. The topics that I will cover are
Day One: Your created reality. Blue or green lenses?
Day Two : The mind, body and spirit? Changing your biochemistry.
Day Three: It’s in your genes? How do we show up?
Day Four: Neuroscience. Teaching an old dog new tricks?
Day Five: Making it count. Managing stress
