Have you heard of Pottenger's Cats? If you haven't, prepare yourself for a paradigm shift in how you view food, nutrition, and generational heredity.
Pottenger’s Cats is a reference to a scientific study conducted by Francis M. Pottenger from 1932 to 1942. Pottenger, a scientist studying adrenal hormones on cats, accidentally stumbled upon a finding so profound, so important to overall health, that it is at the core of any natural healthcare provider’s mission. He found that, when eating a diet inconsistent with optimal health, cats were developing degenerative diseases and became quite lazy in the first generation of exposure and developed disease earlier in life in the second generation, coupled with a noticeable loss in coordination. And by the third generation, cats were experiencing elevated infertility, blindness, weakness, had a much shorter lifespan, and allergy rates were skyrocketing.
Why is this relevant? IT'S HAPPENING TO HUMANS! A cat's life cycle is much shorter than ours, so the study serves as a premonition. We are in the second and even third generation of this happening to humans. Allergies and food sensitivities saw a hike of 377% between 2007 and 2016, autism is at an all-time high at 1 in 57, and we all know someone struggling with an unexplainable, mystery illness.
The ramifications of this study go beyond nutrition and into the toxicity of the world we live in. That's why natural health exists. Natural health’s mission is to return to the ways that mother nature provided. It’s not just about removing disease but enhancing life. And we choose to do that without drugs, without chemicals, and without side effects. In natural health, we believe that you don’t put drugs in and get health out. You can’t be healthier than the food you eat. You can’t be healthier than the thoughts you think.
So, what’s the underpinning of natural health?
There's a surprisingly simple answer. And the answer is epigenetics. Epigenetics is another way of explaining our genes. Epigenetics suggests that it's genetic expression, not simply your genes, that dictates your risk of disease. In simpler forms, if you have a bad gene, but it doesn't 'express', it's as if you don't have it.
So how do you avoid expressing your 'bad genes'? Well, that's the million-dollar question isn't it? It comes down to our lifestyle. We all know that when we eat better or exercise regularly, we feel better. When you do those things, you're leverage your epigenetics through your lifestyle decisions. And that's the key. Lifestyle.
True health is not an answer, but a process. And that process is achieved through lifestyle. One of the best quotes about epigenetics is: your genes load the gun, but your lifestyle pulls the trigger.
As natural healthcare providers, we are experts at leveraging epigenetic factors in our clients’ favor. We have the most advanced tools in the world that are rooted in quantum physics to identify, at a bio-individual level, the needs of an individual client.
We start with nutrition, but we don't stop there. We help our clients energetically clear their emotions. We help our clients identify exposures to toxins that are diminishing their healing power. We help clients grow and balance their energy fields so that they are resilient to the stress in our lives.
And we’ve done it thousands of times with astonishing results. We don’t treat, cure, prevent, diagnose or prescribe. We don’t need to. We simply support our clients’ bodies and sit back while our clients’ innate intelligence is activated.
If you want to leverage epigenetics so that your genes express favorably, you wouldn’t believe what we have in store for you!
