You Body Is Constantly Speaking To You In Symptoms

Mar 25, 2017

The healthy aging market is a multi-billion dollar industry. The recent advancements in genetic science show us that a customized healthy aging solution is not a guessing game of trial and error. 

We're going back to basics today discussing the benefits of certain foods, supplements and exercise 

The latest genetic research shows us the way we age is highly affected by that person’s unique genetic profile. 

If the food and supps you're consuming don't align with your genetics, you may be accelerating your aging process.

Fish oil and its ability to reduce plaque, exercise & its anti-aging benefits & low glycemic foods all slow the aging process. 

If you’re not adopting these benefits you may and wonder why your mother or father is looking back at you in the mirror at such as young age, you may want to impede that process right away.

 

Visit: www.geneticdirection.com and learn more about GxRenew to gain insight about the food, exercise routine and supplements that best align with your genetic make-up to help slow the aging process

Matching Your Food Fitness To Female Physiology Selene Yeager

Feb 25, 2017

In this episode famous nutrition and exercise doctor, Dr Tim Church Tina Bernet and I discuss how modern technology has provided convenient and efficient tools for us to use to measure exercise and motivate us.


Millions of people buy infomercial exercise equipment and eating programs because they believe they're going to look like the person on T.V. They also feel entitled to have their desired body while disregarding all of the consistent hard work that goes into transforming thoughts and behaviors to realize the outcome they desire.
 
A new norm isn't created because you purchased an exercise device, or diet program. A new norm is created through repetition and use of tools designed to move you in the direction you want to go…in any facet of your life.
 
How does a company like Fitbit motivate owners of the device to actually use it, and to do so with consistency?
 
What changes did they make to motivate people?
 
A UK, Australian and  U.S. survey shows an estimated 30% of Fitbit owners do not use them.
The show took some turns we didn’t expect but it was all salient commentary to guide you in the right direction for the change you seek. We recognized the importance of individuality and case-by-case scenarios rather than a blanket statement of what people “Should” do to affect change
