The Avocado Cookbook

About Us – Life Science Publications

Health-Care thru Self-Care

When we first set out to create The Avocado Cookbook, it wasn’t all about filling the pages of a book with tasty food suggestions & ways to simply eat more of something  we all love to eat.

The Avocado Cookbook is a deep dive into the world of Human Physiology, Biochemistry and most importantly, a headlong plunge into the overwhelming Emergence of The Evidence-based Science of Lifestyle Medicine.

Many of you will, if you have not already been; introduced to a Word known as “Epigenetics”

What is Epigenetics?

According to the Official Website of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

“Your genes play an important role in your health, but so do your behaviors and environment, such as what you eat and how physically active you are. Epigenetics is the study of how your behaviors and environment can cause changes that affect the way your genes work. Unlike genetic changes, epigenetic changes are reversible and do not change your DNA sequence, but they can change how your body reads a DNA sequence.

Gene expression refers to how often or when proteins are created from the instructions within your genes. While genetic changes can alter which protein is made, epigenetic changes affect gene expression to turn genes “on” and “off.” Since your environment and behaviors, such as diet and exercise, can result in epigenetic changes, it is easy to see the connection between your genes and your behaviors and environment”.

A few simple definitions that might put it in perspective for you

Epigenetics: implies control above the Gene

Epigenetics describes How your lifestyle..... meaning....

  • What you Eat - [Nutritional Density]
  • How you think - [Relaxation, Stress & Life's challenges]
  • What you touch, [Grounding to the Earth, Household Chemicals, Toxins in Food and more]
  • How you move [The Human Body is not built for Exercise, it is built for Movement... Form-Follows-Function] and
  • The Quality and Quantity of your Sleep [ Sleep is arguably more important than Food]
  • and Relationships

…. directly affects your health, in both positive and negative ways. According to how you choose to act out your life.

And Finally

Epigenetics; Technically and literally, according to the Oxford Dictionary, means:

 “The study of changes in organisms caused by modification of gene expression rather than alteration of the genetic code itself”.
