Can You Change Your DNA?

Scrabble tiles spelling title, Can You Change Your DNA

What do you think? Can you change your DNA? Must we live with what we were given? Through having our son go through a nine year journey with pancreatic cancer, I’ve become fascinated with health. Let’s see what scientists have to tell us.

DNA Changes with Bruce H. Lipton, PhD.

Bruce H. Lipton, PhD. wrote The Biology of Belief: Unleashing the Power of Consciousness, Matter and Miracles. As a former medical school professor and research scientist, his opinions carry weight.

Initially, the medical field has had the opinion that DNA is fixed, without the capacity of improvement. It was thought that the process of aging and stress continually eroded the ends of the DNA which are called telemeres. Once they wore down to nothing, the strands of DNA had nothing to secure them. The end of the telemeres meant the end of life.

Along came quantum physics. Rather than the theory that everything is matter, as Newton proposed, now everything is thought to be energy or light. Here is Dr. Lipton’s webpage. Quantum physics revealed the DNA could be improved.

Michael Roizen, MD and Mehmet Oz, MD

Epigenetics is the study of how changes can affect the workings of our genes. Our environment and behaviors can actually reverse the telemere shrinkage and lengthen them. “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.” Diet, exercise and stress management are some of the ways to achieve this. This is Dr. Roizen’s site. Here is Dr. Oz’s website.

Science Daily & DNA Change

“Mind-body interventions (MBIs) such as meditation, yoga and Tai Chi don’t simply relax us; they can ‘reverse’ the molecular reactions in our DNA which cause ill-health and depression, according to a study by the universities of Coventry and Radboud.”

Quantum Touch & The Reconnection

Quantum Touch is one of the modes of energy healing I’ve tried. It works with life force energy and the principles of resonance and entrainment. It raises a person’s energy to allow self healing. This is the website for more information.

The Reconnection is another kind of energy healing with which I’ve worked. This one creates measurably higher levels of bio-photonic light. If you are curious to find out more, here is their site.

Both Quantum Touch as well as The Reconnection are known to restructure DNA.

As a certified energy healer, I would say that all modes of energy healing can increase levels of bio-photonic light. In practicing qigong, which could be classified as both a mind-body intervention as well as energy healing, there is also a proliferation of bio-photonic light. The question of all of these modes would be, “Have these methods scientifically verified it?” Here is my story of transforming my fear of our son’s diagnosis. Learning energy healing played a huge part. Miracles and Other Antidotes

HeartMath, Emotions and DNA

Our emotions are very capable of making differences in our health. “Heartfelt positive feelings fortify our energy systems and nourish the body at the cellular level . At HeartMath we call these nutrients quantum nutrients.” For further information, check out

Speaking of emotions, when it comes to a prognosis for a patient, presentation is critical. A story I heard sometime in the past decade involved a son who was to tell his dad of the elder’s prognosis. He was expected to die very soon. The son chose not to inform his father and to just make the best of his remaining time. Some years later, the son happened to see the doctor who inquired of his father. He asked how he took the news. The son replied that he opted to not tell him, and by the way, he was living life to his fullest! The positive emotions his son must have provided for him brought him to a place of health!

In similar fashion, our son chose to not have a doctor give him his own prognosis. I’m certain it made a difference.

William Shatner

William Shatner, who played Captain Kirk in Star Trek, has not slowed his pace. Born in 1931, he is still fully engaged in life. He reports he does not plan on retiring until he dies! Numerous projects in the form of making movies and television shows, writing books and producing music as well as riding horses and bikes occupy his time. He advises people to get a life, be creative and find the joy! I have no doubt that his telemeres have quite a bit of life in them yet!

We are in times of new frontiers in medicine, or perhaps they are merely ancient ways rediscovered. While you can’t change your basic genetic code (DNA), you can make the best of what you have by lengthening your telemeres. The hope exists in eating healthy foods, exercising, getting plenty of sleep and making mind-body interventions. May you find your joy!
