Understanding Epigenetics, Healing Disease

and Your Emotional DNA!

By Theresa Dale, Ph.D., CCN, NP  2014

 

 

Have you ever heard someone say, “I’m sick and tired?  This continued internal dialog creates sickness and fatigue. Chronic heightened emotional states create a perfect breeding ground for illness. Through a 30-year practice Dr. Dale observed the relationship between one’s mental focus on negativity, epigenetics, stress, methylation and disease.

A negative thought pattern, feeling, or belief absorbs into our unconscious mind: focusing on them reinforces their existence. This information is then transmitted to our cells! Moreover, every time we think about something we do not want, we actually draw it to us.

A healthy internal environment includes empowering identities, which stimulate positive belief systems and emotions. As Carl Jung’s research revealed: a persona is an identity (unconscious, pre-existent disposition), which we present to the outside world. A persona propagates beliefs, which in turn stimulate emotions. Mostidentitiesareunconscious yet may be connected to genetic predispositions.

Thousands of years before Epigenetics and Psychoneuroimmunology (PNI), the Chinese Five Element Theory and Body Clock lead the way to understanding the relationship between emotions, stress and disease.

Psychoneuroimmunology (PNI) is the study of the interaction between psychological processes (stress) and the nervous and immune systems of the human body. PNI takes an interdisciplinary approach, incorporating psychology, neuroscience, immunology, physiology, genetics, pharmacology, molecular biology, psychiatry, behavioral medicine, infectious diseases, endocrinology, and rheumatology.

The immune system and the brain communicate through signaling pathways and they are the two major adaptive systems of the body. Two major pathways that are involved in this cross talk are the Hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis (HPA axis) and the sympathetic nervous system (SNS). The activation of SNS during an immune response might be aimed to localize the inflammatory response.

The body’s primary stress management system is the HPA axis. The HPA axis normally responds to physical and mental challenges to maintain homeostasis in part by controlling the body’s cortisol level. Through accurate Saliva Testing Dr. Dale observed elevated and depressed cortisol levels, which can occur when the HPA axis may be unable to perform due to toxic overload of HRT, BHRT or medications.

Understanding Why You Experience Stress

Stress is experienced from unresolved issues in life. In other words, theuncomfortable gap between...




a)how we would like our life to be and 



b how it actually is!

If this gap is persistent and growing, despite our efforts to reduce it;  the distress becomes acute.

Epigenetics and Methylation

In biology, epigenetics is the study of changes in phenotype (appearance) or gene expression caused by mechanisms other than changes in the underlying DNA sequence, hence the name epi - Greek for over, above) genetics.

Traditional science has believed that our genes are fixed and that nothing can change genetic determinism.

Conversely, continued research in epigenetics is proving that cells are responsive to their environment and that these responses reach deep into the internal structure of the cell, including the DNA. Cells have a dynamic cellular intelligence; research indicates that genes are being turned on and off based on environmental factors.

What is most exciting is if the environment that supports the disease is eliminated, and a new healthier environment replaces it, the predisposition for the genetic disease will not be supported and it will not manifest. The discovery that cells are responding to the internal environment of our thoughts, beliefs and feelings gives all of us founded hope that changing our behaviors literally produces biological changes on the cellular level.

Epigenetic research reveals the following.

* Genetics are controlled by perception of our environment NOT genes.

* Genes do not control who you are nor your biological expression.

* Genes adapt to your beliefs and identities.

* Genes can not turn themselves on or off; the organism changes to adapt to the environment.

Let’s review another potential link between epigenetic processes and Methylation. 

The Methylation Cycle is a biochemical pathway that manages or contributes to a wide range of crucial bodily functions, including: Detoxification, Immune function, Maintaining DNA, Energy production, Mood balancing, Controlling inflammation. Methylation is the passing of a chemical fragment called a methyl group (a carbon atom linked to three hydrogen atoms) from one molecule to another. 

All of these processes help the body respond to environmental stressors, to detoxify, and to adapt and rebuild. That’s why lowered methylation function may contribute to healing many major chronic conditions.  Methylation is involved in almost every bodily biochemical reaction, and occurs billions of times every second in our cells. DNA methylation is one of the essential, and one of the most important uses of methyl groups. DNA methylation was the first epigenetic alteration to be observed in cancer cells. 

A number of factors can influence the DNA methylation levels of a cell without requiring a change in genomic DNA sequence. 

* Biological Aging; A whole body detoxification is needed bi-annually

* Diet: Avoiding toxic foods. (Read: Revitalize Your Hormones)

* Environment; detoxify pesticides, chemicals, radiation.

* Mental and Emotional stress; (Read: Transform Your Emotional DNA)

Dr. Theresa I. Dale, PhD, CCN, NP is an international speaker, inventor, author and Naturopath. She is the “Pioneer of Hormone Rejuvenation” with over 20,000 case studies using her homeopathic hormone rejuvenation formulas and her “Five Element Salivary Test” panel. Dr. Dale’s Non-GMO, and Gluten-Free nutritional and detoxification formulas are successful in cli-nical testing and in outpatient clinics. 

In 1994 Dr. Dale, founded The Wellness Center for Research and Education, Inc.  The California College of Natural Medicine (501C3) was then founded to offer careers in advanced natural medicine. Dr. Dale has authored two books Revitalize Your Hormones; Dr. Dale’s 7 Steps to a Happier, Healthier and Sexier You and Transform Your Emotional DNA, Understanding the Blueprint of Your Life.
