An exciting, very readable book,
This review is from: Genie in Your Genes (Paperback)
This is an exciting book about epigenetics - the control of genes outside the cell -, and can be read in conjunction with Candace Pert's "Molecules of emotion" or Bruce Lipton's "Biology of Belief".
Finally, modern scientific research is confirming what many of us have known for some time, that genes do not control our destiny, but that our consciousness - meditation, prayer, "social goodwill" - and lifestyle are what in the last resort determine our state of health.
This is wonderful news for all of us. We ourselves are back in control.
The book contains a useful chapter on energy psychology, i.e. EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) and the like. This chapter has convinced me to give EFT another chance. I was also introduced to TAT (Tapas Acupressure Technique), which is a very simple technique akin to EFT.
The author urges us to take charge of our lives, also by consulting complementary or alternative therapists if the need arises, and only resorting to traditional medicine and surgery if all else fails, except of course in emergency situations.
Though a few of the preliminary chapters are somewhat difficult owing to their scientific content, I would highly recommend this book to every thinking human being. I for one will be looking out for other books by this author.
