According to Dr. Deepak Chopra and Dr. Rudolph Tanzi, authors of the New York Times bestseller Super Brain, you are not simply the sum total of the genes you were born with. You are the user and controller of your genes, the author of your biological story. No prospect in self-care is more exciting. Learning how to shape your gene activity is at the heart of this exciting and eagerly anticipated book.
For decades medical science has believed that genes determine our biological destiny. Now the new genetics has changed that assumption forever. You will always have the genes you were born with, but genes are dynamic, responding to everything we think, say, and do. Suddenly they’ve become our strongest allies for personal renewal. When you make lifestyle choices that optimize how your genes behave, you can reach for a state of health and fulfillment undreamed of even a decade ago. The impact on disease prevention, immunity, diet, aging, and chronic disorders is unparalleled.
Super Genes explores the entire mind-body system and how it is regulated by gene activity. Much like multiple telephone lines—teeming with messages, every cell in your body is talking to many other cells via genetic messages. This book shows you how your lifestyle choices, helpful or harmful, become a part of that conversation.
The purpose of this book,” write Chopra and Tanzi “is to raise everyday well-being to the level of radical well-being. A journey of transformation awaits us. By understanding how we affect our own genome on a daily basis, the new genetics has led to a flood of exciting findings, and more appear every day. Human DNA has many more secrets to reveal. Yet a tipping point has already been reached, making it blindingly clear that the human body is far more capable of healing and renewal than anyone suspected.”
Daring and historical as well as practical and evidence-based—with dozens of ways to begin changing your life now—Super Genes takes a quantum leap into the frontiers of self-care. Watch as Deepak Chopra and Rudolph Tanzi discuss how embracing the concept of “Super Genes” will revolutionize how we understand ourselves and the health of those around us.
