How Our Beliefs And Thoughts Impact Our Biology And Gene Expression

There is powerful science behind how our beliefs inform our genetic expression. It’s not our genes alone that dictate our health outcomes, rather it’s the biology of belief that determines our destiny.

Today on The Doctor’s Farmacy, I’m excited to talk to Dr. Bruce Lipton about how exactly our thoughts determine our genetic expression, and how we can influence our health using our minds. Time and time again, I’ve seen that mindset is a defining factor in how successful my patients are on their healing journey. The mind-body connection is a powerful one—how we think and feel creates our state of being.

Dr. Lipton and I talk about how our subconscious thoughts and beliefs can have real, long-lasting impacts on our physical health. Most people tend to attribute far too much power to their genes. I’ve seen thousands of patients who have blamed genetics for their ailments and diseases, however, it is your lifestyle and environment washing over your genes that determines who you are at any moment.

Dr. Lipton is a pioneer in the field of epigenetics, which suggests that our behavior can influence which of our genes are turned on or off. This has been one of the biggest breakthroughs in medicine. What you eat and how you move, along with your thoughts, feelings, and social connections, regulate your genes. Dr. Lipton explains how our thoughts, feelings, and emotions are transmitted into our cells and our genes, and how our emotions can adjust our genetics.

We also talk about how our minds are programmed, even before birth, and why the first seven years of life are so crucial for the development of our belief system. Dr. Lipton also shares his top tips for how we can reshape our thinking to create health and longevity. I hope you’ll tune in to this fascinating conversation.
