Good for us that Dr Jamie Koonce is a self-professed nerd from playground days. Who would have thought that a childhood intuition to change her diet to prevent migraines would put her on a path to learning and discovering the role of epigenetics and the influence on our health and appearance. Her passion for learning has not stopped and she now teaches people like you and I how to bio-hack our way to health. You will be pleased to know that Jamie dispels the belief that there is ONE diet or nutrition protocol for everyone!
Inspire yourself with these essential insights from Dr Jamie Koonce
We spoke about
Jamie’s curiosity with the way the body worked from a young age
Having more control over our health than we think
The influence of epigenetics on our health and appearance
The role of genetic inheritance, lifestyle and environmental inputs
Understanding the effect of your genetics in relationship to your own diet and nutrition
Never too late to make changes that will improve your health and wellbeing
Determining and interpreting your genetic profile
Why assessing how you’re doing with your health regularly is so important
”I was fascinated by the body, how you could change the way that you feel, the way that you look, everything about the body just by different environmental inputs”
“It seems a lot of people don’t make that connection even after they get very sick. They feel like they have no control and it’s just something that happened to them. They really do have control and I think that’s empowering to know.”
“Whatever you might be going through with your health right now you probably have more control over it than you think”
“You can turn off or turn on a gene for better or for worse depending on the environmental inputs”
“I’ve been studying this for several years and have found some very interesting things about how you can change your diet and your lifestyle to basically cause these epigenetic changes that are very desirable and to prevent the changes that are not”
“Understanding your own genetics helps you understand why none of these diet books work for everyone”
“Never settle for ‘this is just the way things are’ because it doesn’t have to be that way”
“Why would you settle for a mediocre life or mediocre health when you can have vitality and really feel amazing and do amazing things because you feel amazing”
