The Genie in Your Genes is a breakthrough book linking consciousness to genetic change. For the first time, a single book summarizes a chain of remarkable scientific discoveries that are revolutionizing the ways we think about health.

 Author Dawson Church applies the insights of the new field ofEpigenetics (epi=above, i.e. control above the level of the gene) to healing. Citing hundreds of scientific studies, he shows how beliefs and emotions can trigger the expression of DNA strands. He focuses on a class of genes called Immediate Early Genes or IEGs. These genes turn on within a few seconds of a stimulus. They can be triggered by thoughts or emotions ("I loved that unexpected gift of roses Bill gave me" or "I'm so mad about what Uncle John said at the Christmas party"). Many IEGs are regulatory genes turn on other genes that affect specific aspects of our immune system, such as the production of white blood cells that destroy attacking bacteria and viruses. Epigenetics thus influences our health every day.

He coins the new term "Epigenetic Medicine" to describe healing techniques with epigenetic effects. He also summarizes the science behind the infant fields of Energy Psychology and Energy Medicine, both of which offer promising epigenetic medical therapies, and describes a few of the thousands of powerful personal breakthroughs that are being achieved by therapists, doctors and lay people practicing these techniques. The Genie in Your Genesshows that there is a sound theoretical framework, based on credible experiments, for understanding these astonishing results, and predicts that the insights of Epigenetic Medicine will dramatically advance the fields of both medicine and psychology in the coming decade.

Best of all, The Genie in Your Genesdemonstrates that, by taking control of our consciousness and using it to influence our genetic expression, we can sometimes bypass years of therapy, as well as harmful drugs and invasive surgeries, to, in effect, do continuous genetic engineering on our own bodies. This can produce both immediate relief from long-standing anxieties and neuroses, as well as "miraculous" healing of persistent physical conditions, especially autoimmune diseases.

Among a new crop of books that chart the way to a positive health future, The Genie in Your Genes stands out as a solidly grounded and exciting pointer to the future possibilities of a medicine that links soul to body and mind.

Your Happy Genes

Wouldn’t it be nice if we had a set of genes that coded for the biochemicals of happiness? Imagine if every one of us possessed a gene collection that, when the right genes were turned off or on, made us happy.

Being happy is what virtually everyone says they want. Even miserable people seem to be happy being miserable. Many human activities revolve around the goal of creating the conditions in which happiness can flourish. Material wellbeing, safety and security, and physical health all contribute to happiness. Spiritual practices can change our brains in ways that promote happiness.

Yet happiness is not an on-off condition like a light switch. You aren’t either miserably depressed, or ecstatic, with nothing in between. It’s more like a the dimmer on a lamp, in which the position of the slider might be at any point between total lightness and total darkness, and is usually somewhere between those two extremes. In this way it’s like our fight-or-flight response. We aren’t either in total fight-or-flight mode, or totally passive. Most of the time we’re somewhere in between. Another spectrum is the production of cortisol and DHEA in the cortex of our adrenal glands. Your body isn’t going flat out producing either one or the other. It’s producing a ratio of both hormones. Prolonged stress will lead you to produce more cortisol. Prolonged relaxation will lead you to produce more DHEA. At any given moment, you’re somewhere between the extremes.

Professional Reviews

—Shift magazine - Institue of Noetic Sciences
“Faith, prayer, thoughts, emotions, intentions, and beliefs are vital components to creating a space for healing and balance to occur. For those who have questions on the science of this emerging field, numerous studies are cited—there are nearly 400 endnotes—and dozens of researchers, doctors, and practitioners reviewed the manuscript. Well-researched, fast-moving, grounded in credible science while fancifully speculative, The Genie in Your Genes offers tantalizing proof that we are on the verge of a spectacular breakthrough in our understanding of how optimal health is achieved and maintained. For those who feel that the future of medicine will be energy- and consciousness-based, this book will become a dog-eared friend.”

—Bruce H. Lipton, Ph.D
“Recent advances in the science of epigenetics and quantum physics herald a global evolution that will profoundly impact the life of every person on this planet. In The Genie in Your Genes, Dawson Church expertly distills the Ivory Tower complexities of this life-changing science into a simple and elegant presentation for the layperson. Realize sovereignty over your health and happiness; read this empowering and inspiring book!”

Donna Eden & David Feinstein, Ph.D.
“Take yourself on a quantum leap into cutting edge science and discover how it will transform medicine and health care in the next decade. Dawson Church has mined the most revolutionary findings from diverse fields of science and practice and brilliantly synthesized them into a clearly-written manifesto for the enlightened care of the human body, mind, and community.”

Hi Dawson,fellow AD member :)))

I was impressed with the excerpt re 'The Genie in Your Genes' so much so that I have ordered it via Amazon. I have read much about this old/new approach to healing, however, I sense that YOUR book will reveal more..much more!

Thank you for gifting us with your knowledge.
