There has been an ever increasing amount of information coming from the scientific press that each individual has, through no fault of their own, a silent killer, or two or three, hiding in their DNA deep inside their body’s cells. Many of these press releases characterize the development of genetically connected diseases as virtually inevitable, with the result being that individuals become terrified concerning their supposed fate. The articles are often written as though the particular genetic marker is laying in wait for the right moment to express itself and inflict its damage on the helpless victim.
More and more people are nervously getting tested for their genetic profile in order to prepare for the inevitability of any number of disturbing diseases. Unfortunately, those in the medical establishment, who have a primary focus on cash flow, are adding to the paranoia that many people are experiencing, by offering everything from pharmaceuticals to surgical preventatives so people can feel more safe from their impending doom. The recent stories about Angelina Jolie having her breasts removed after she found out she had genetic markers for the development of breast cancer, is a prime example of the current extreme solutions being put forth by this kind of thinking.
There is clearly validity to certain aspects of the science of genetics, but the current exaggerated paranoid focus on genetic disease markers is not based on valid scientific interpretation. This misinterpretation has led to warnings that are blown way out of proportion, having no direct connection to actual inherent threats.
According to the Human Genome Project, which did a thorough study of human DNA, we all have twenty-two thousand genes, for all sorts of bodily aspects, good and bad. Not all of these genes are actively expressed, which is a good thing, while many remain dormant. A gene will not express itself at all unless the environment surrounding it becomes favorable to that expression. As an example, a cancer gene needs certain environmental requirements to be met before it can activate. The determinant here isn’t genetics, it’s epigenetics.
Epigenetics involves the study of changes in the regulation of gene activity and expression that are not dependent on gene sequence. Epigenetics refers to both heritable changes in gene activity and expression (in the progeny of cells or of individuals) and also stable, long-term alterations in the transcriptional potential of a cell that are not necessarily heritable. In other words, epigenetic changes can modify the activation of certain genes, but not the sequence of DNA. Additionally, the chromatin proteins associated with DNA may be activated or silenced. This is why the differentiated cells in a multi-cellular organism express only the genes that are necessary for their own activity.
Epigenetic changes are preserved when cells divide. Most epigenetic changes only occur within the course of one individual organism’s lifetime, but, if gene inactivation occurs in a sperm or egg cell that results in fertilization, then some epigenetic changes can be transferred to the next generation.
DNA damage can also cause epigenetic changes. DNA damages are very frequent, occurring at a rate of 1,000 to 1,000,000 molecular lesions per cell per day. These damages are largely repaired, but at the site of a DNA repair, epigenetic changes can remain.
So the term epigenetics could be described as referring to those things that have influence over our genes, leading to gene expression or gene silencing. Epigenetic influences would include chemicals, nutrients, electromagnetic radiation, including various wavelengths of light, along with any other environmental influence on the body’s biological function. We are all products of our environment.
Our genes are the first draft of what we are created to be, but the experience those genes face determines how our life plays out over time. In other words, it’s not the genes alone that predispose us to disease, but rather those things within our diet and environment that act upon our genes. As a conservative estimate in genetics, the average person actually controls anywhere from a low of 80 percent to upward of 97 percent or more of their own genetic expression with respect to potential disease processes and longevity.
It is vitally important that we stop focusing on disease states and instead think about what happens to the cell’s environment that dictates its fate. There is a lot of data over the last fifty years that shows that humans functioning in an “altered field” will experience symptoms common to diseases such as obesity, Hashimoto’s, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and diabetes. The field refers to the local environment that cells and the organism find themselves in. The field constantly changes as we move through the environment. This includes the nutrients available to us and the electromagnetic field around us.
DNA has been shown experimentally to be controlled by a magnetic field. Whatever activates and electrifies DNA is the major determining factor in genetic expression. Genetic expression is directly tied to the electromagnetic field that life lives in. To deny it is to deny experiments already proving it is true.
The field we face at sea level is not the same as the one on the top of Everest. The field we experience near a fault next to a volcano is not the same as the one found on an ice sheet in Antarctica. Since our brain never perceives the field through vision, sound, touch, taste, or smell, the mind never accounts for the effect of the field on its cells. It is almost like it never exists. This problem is compounded when you consider that, in our modern world, a child’s brain has to navigate an altered electromagnetic background before it is fully developed. As it turns out, children are more sensitive to the field because their brains are un-myelinated. Myelin provides some protection, to the deeper grey brain matter, from the effects of an altered electromagnetic field.
This information allows us to gain insights into just how the field affects human epigenetic expression. The field dictates all epigenetic expression and it extends to trans-generational epigenetics as well. Genes are important, but they are not the dominant player modern science believes they are. The ‘field’ makes the call when gene products should and need to be expressed. If the electromagnetic field has been altered from the native frequencies that humans originally developed within, then the result will be alterations in gene expression with potentially damaging results. These are things we need to pay deep attention to if we are going to understand the mystery of how our genes are expressed.
Darwin was right about the conditions of existence being more important than natural selection for life. He said this in his original book on evolution. He spent the rest of his life trying to figure out what controlled this biologic process. Today, conditions of existence have been renamed, and they are called epigenetics. It turns out the “on and off switch” that Darwin was looking for in our genome is an ELF (extremely low frequency) electromagnetic radiation, called the Schumann resonance. It was not discovered until 93 years after Darwin wrote The Origin of Species. The Schumann resonance is an ELF in the lowest energy and frequency range of the electromagnetic spectrum and our brain cannot see it, touch it, or smell it but our cells sense it using quantum resonance. It is below the power of the visible light spectrum where the photoelectric reigns supreme.
Energy has many forms on Earth and ……the photoelectric effect is the most powerful form of energy in our world. Biology uses it and the ELF of the Earth’s magnetic field to control genetic expression. This is an ELF that few seem to realize but has major physiologic power to control how genes are expressed in wellness and in disease states by affecting water chemistry and protein chemistry.
Water is the perfect chemical magnetic dipole, so this is why it is the major substrate on the earth to becomes active or passive in energy transfers with the earth’s magnetic field. When water finds itself in our native magnetic field, water becomes able to transfer more energy from the sun’s light to living things. This is why water is the liquid of life and is called liquid sunshine by some biologists. When water exists in an extreme low frequency (ELF) EMF field, as was normally found on earth before 1850, water’s hydrogen bonds oscillate and resonate at 7.83 Hz or harmonics of this frequency up to 89 Hz. In actuality, the earth magnetic field alters itself seasonally from 0-30Hz due to the sun’s magnetic field.
These changes in micropulsations directly act upon life by changing DNA and RNA expression. We call this epigenetics. How does this happen? The amount of oscillations from these extremely low frequency natural EMFs cause a favorable change in the hydrogen bonds of water to alter the bonding angles in the dipoles of water molecules to become maximally efficient to transfer energy from the sun to our cells. Since 1950, this magnetic field has been radically altered by man.
Another reason genes are not the whole story is that humans have more non coding DNA than every other primate. Our genome is only the first copy of life. It is the stage. It is not the map for a whole life. This helps explain why only 2 percent of the human genome codes for proteins. Ninety-eight percent of the human genome codes for retrotransposons, or junk DNA. Today we know that 99.3% of our DNA is used to alter our genome based upon epigenetic signaling. This is why humans have more non coding DNA (ncDNA) than any other animal on the planet. It turns out that ncDNA contains the epigenetic instructions of how to energize the proteins in our genome to alter function based upon environmental pressures. In this, “junk DNA” are the instructions for how energy transforms matter. The instructions energy gives, specifically electromagnetic energy, to our non-coding DNA is what ultimately makes us different. These energies come from our environment.
This is how biology works. Energy changes the structure and function of matter. Proteins are a form of matter. Energy sculpts what proteins can and will do and how they will act in a cell. This is called conditions of existence, or epigenetics, today. Protein is the matter coded for by DNA. Chimps and humans share the same genes 99.9% but we differ radically in how we energize our DNA. This is what ultimately makes us a different species.
The current variations from the original native electromagnetic frequencies have resulted in the increasingly common diseases that are seen in medicine today. As these environmental frequencies change, it becomes increasingly necessary to understand how the body’s biochemistry changes so we can alter our therapeutic maneuvers to compensate for these environmental issues.
Today, many of the therapeutic maneuvers that we call evidence-based, are, in fact, removing energy from the biologic system. Removing energy from this system causes it to become more unstable, and it leads to poor cell signaling and disease. Proper cell signaling requires a constant, steady flow of energy within the semiconductors of cells. Any treatments that cause a loss of energy, cause patients to emit more black box radiation. These effects are compounded when we advocate a diet or a modern lifestyle that also allows for more energy losses. This further underscores why carbohydrates are a real problem for modern humans because they only give us 36 ATP, compared to 147 ATP from beta oxidation of fats. Carbohydrates can be utilized by the body when cell signaling is working well. But when this signaling is not working well, as happens on earth today, health issues will result from the ingestion of carbohydrates.
The science of epigenetics makes clear that our DNA is not our destiny. Our modern beliefs are usually the cause of our epigenetic decline. Today, medicine is hanging its proverbial hat on dogma it calls “evidence-based” that has divorced itself from most epigenetic mechanisms. Evidence-based research is looking at data over a population and then taking that generalization and applying it to a treatment algorithm for a person.
Epigenetic models have already established that our cellular structure can be modified by thoughts, perceptions, beliefs, environment, diet and behavior, thus determining who we are, how we respond to disease, what we are and in many ways, what we will become. To return to the example stated above, cancer is not a genetic disease, it is an epigenetic one linked to massive loss of energy because of choices the person has made knowingly or unknowingly to themselves. Cancer explodes when we lose control of T cell immunity.
When we lose energy for any reason at all, the brain and the immune system are normally the two systems that go awry first, in our particular species. This is why Neolithic diseases like Alzheimer’s and Hashimoto’s are exploding today, when 120 years ago they were unheard of.
Eating a diet that provides a huge source of energy makes more sense when you are constantly losing energy to your environment. This is why the Epi-paleo template, developed by Dr. Jack Kruse, stands above any other for today’s condition of existence. It is a Rx designed around our epigenetic mechanisms, and not our cultural or medical beliefs. This, however, does not mean it will remain our best option. We must use epigenetics to guide our decisions in the changing environment we are facing today. In fact, the optimal diet for us all may change in the next ten years because of what is happening today in our world. The human diet should never be thought of as static. It must change as the environment we create around us changes.
This implies “our species solution” really is a moving target because of our epigenetic toolbox. An architect far better and smarter than us has given us that epigenetic toolbox, and we now have the ability to use it by altering our behaviors to change our lives.
