Product description


"In a health literate and innovative way, Dr. Pelletier unravels the mystery of your genes and the epigenetic inputs throughout life that continue to program your genes. Reading this book is an essential epigenetic input that will help you optimize your gene expression." --Richard Carmona, MD, MPH, FACS, Seventeenth Surgeon General of The United States, Distinguished Professor, University of Arizona<br \><br \>"Not only does this book provides a scientific basis for our ability to shape our health trajectories through belief and lifestyle choices, but it also outlines the emerging power of personalized medicine. It's must-read for everybody interested in integrative medicine!" --Emeran A. Mayer, MD, PhD, Executive Director, Oppenheimer Center at the UCLA Microbiome Center, Author of The Mind-Gut Connection<br \><br \>"I found genetics to be the most complex subject in medical school. Now, fifty years later, the field is one hundred times more complicated. But leave it to Kenneth Pelletier to once again not only tackle the importance of this rapidly evolving field but, as with his other timely books, to make the practical application of these breakthroughs easy to understand for most readers. No one does it better." --Steven E. Locke, MD, Associate Clinical, Professor of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School, Distinguished Life Fellow of the American Psychiatric Association, Chief Medical Officer, iHope Network<br \><br \>"This extraordinary guidebook distills cutting-edge science and is beautifully written with practical tools for achieving optimal health. A must read for consumers and clinicians." --Woodson Merrell, MD, Assistant Professor of Medicine, Mt. Sinai School of Medicine, Chairman, Integrative Healthcare Symposium<br \><br \>"Dr. Pelletier continues in his visionary streak of anticipating and informing people about critical emerging trends in health promotion. In this newest book, he turns his sights on understanding the potential of lifestyle choices on changing the expression of the genes that shape our health. It is refreshing to see precision medicine focused on lifestyle change as an underappreciated complement to the development of pharmaceuticals. The book distills the complexities of genetics and metabolism into easy-to-understand concepts, metaphors, and examples that make these often arcane topics accessible and applicable to practical health improvement solutions." --David S. Sobel, MD, MPH, Adjunct Lecturer, Stanford University School of Medicine; Former Director of Patient Education and Health Promotion, Kaiser Permanente Northern California; author of The Mind & Body Health Handbook<br \><br \>"Dr. Pelletier has been a trusted colleague for many years as well as an inspiration on the journey for health and wellness. In this book he has tackled the difficult subject of genomics and given us all hope that we still have control over our destinies as they relate to health. The introduction of any new technology requires the science to mature in order to provide a more complete understanding of its relevance and appropriate use. Dr. Pelletier has taken this information and broken it down into an interesting, informative read complete with advice on optimizing our own health. I am confident readers will walk away from this ground-breaking book reassured that lifestyle and environmental changes can make a big difference in each of our lives." -- --K. Andrew Crighton, MD, Past Chairman of the Health Enhancement Research Organization<br

"Dr. Pelletier's new book is practically giving away Ferraris--when it comes to sitting in the driver's seat of your own vehicle and steering an enjoyable journey to vibrant health. He has integrated decades of experience and research on how our genes truly respond to our lifestyle, including the role of stress, consciousness, and gut health. And, he offers us our own dashboard of markers, guidance systems, and practices to fulfill our potential as radiant, thriving beings." --Foster Gamble, Co-creator, THRIVE Movie and Movement

"So you think health is all in your genes? Think again. It in your epigenes! Dr. Pelletier once again show he is a master translator of this complex science into the simple and useable. Read it. Use it." --Wayne Jonas, MD, Executive Director, Samueli Integrative Health Programs; Former Director, Office of Alternative Medicine at the NIH; author of How Healing Works
