Are you chronically ill and have been told that it’s genetic and there’s nothing you can do? Do you, like most people, believe that your genes are your destiny and there is simply nothing we can do to change this?
While these beliefs still seem to be prevalent, research has shown that this is not strictly the case.
Sure, our genetic sequence cannot be changed but the truth is that gene expression can indeed be influenced by our environment, which includes the diet we eat and the lifestyle behaviours we engage in.
This knowledge gives hope that we do actually have some power over our genetic destiny.
I am a fan of functional medicine and have recently become a functional nutrition practitioner. Therefore, I believe it is important to discover the root causes of our health issues in order to help us determine an appropriate course of action.
Functional lab testing is one of the ways that can help us do this.
Today I would like to address how important it is to get dressed and make ourselves look good when we’re suffering from chronic illness. Especially when we’re suffering from chronic illness!
Why? Because when we look better, we tend to feel better!
