To understand fully how nutrition and lifestyle can affect every part of our being, we must first look at how the amazing machine of the human body works. Human beings are arguably the most complex organisms on this planet. Imagine billions of microscopic parts, each with its own identity, working together in an organized manner for the benefit of the total being. Each part is somehow interconnected, which is why we need to treat the whole body instead of just specific problem areas.
After you master anatomy and physiology we will move to the exciting field of biochemistry. This new health paradigm explores how we can alter the course of our genetic destiny with lifestyle choices. Human life is incredibly resilient, with an innate ability and inclination to healing from within. Life is a process of continual transformation, not necessarily constant decline. Epigenetics is the science of studying changes in gene activity that do not involve alterations to the genetic code, but still get passed down to at least one successive generation. Epigenetics may be the most important biological discovery since DNA.
