Welcome and thank you for your interest. What is epigenetic coaching you ask? It involves testing your DNA, and making lifestyle recommendations based on the results. Your DNA is a blueprint of how your body works, but how your genes express comes from outside your body. Meaning; environment, toxins, foods, lifestyle, habits and so on.
A good example is just being physically fit. Anyone knows that your body changes if you change how you exercise.This results in hundreds if not thousands of enzymatic and metabolic changes. This is also a good example of how you can take CONTROL of your genetic expression.
Each of us has up to a thousand single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) which are small genetic variations that make us each unique (sometimes wrongly referred to as mutations). Wouldn't it be great to know, for example, if your genes were coded for insulin resistance (which could lead to diabetes). You could change your diet, and check your blood sugar levels. I have this exact condition, and have changed my diet as a result, and have no illness.
This is why a particular "diet" works for some people and not others. We are all unique. Epigenetic coaching looks at YOUR profile and makes individualized recommendations. Some companies offer this service but only Apeiron Zho ties it with a professional, certified epigenetic coach.
