ZEN+ : Helping you Stay Young and Age Well

Why I said: ‘Where you live and your habits determine your lifespan…’

By Marcus Santer

Yesterday I wrote:

“Where you live and your habits determine your lifespan –
more than the genes you inherited.”

Allow me to qualify this sentence.

To do so I need to give you the definitions of a few words we’ll be using in this post.

Obviously the subject is far more complicated than the short definitions I’ve given above, but they’ll do for our needs.

Moving on….

Your DNA code stays fixed for life, but your Epigenome is flexible.

Epigenetic tags react to signals from the outside world:

All of these can change your gene expression.

And as you grow and develop various chemical reactions activate and deactivate parts of your genome and Epigenetics is the study of these chemical messengers and the factors that influence them.

Epigenetic’s is the reason why I said where you live and your habits determine your lifespan.

And it’s why I believe a long and healthy life can be yours in spite of whatever junk you might have inherited from your family gene pool.

Take away message?

Your genes aren’t fixed.

Your environment and lifestyle can activate or deactivate them…

For better or for worse.

And I think Qigong has much to offer you when it comes to:

Turning off (and keeping off) genes you don’t want turning on
Turning on (and keeping on) genes you don’t want turning off

Especially when it comes to dealing with and managing the stresses and strains of modern life.

And in February I will be teaching a small group of students the most advanced Qigong technique I have ever taught online:

Cosmic Shower

This technique will allow you to:

It starts on the 1st February 2016 and lasts 28 days.

Restrictions apply and places are limited.

And if there are any places left – after inviting my inner circle to attend – I will be opening the doors next week.

So stay tuned.

In the meantime you’ll find full details here.

Bye for now


P.S. Wish me luck…

I’m off to the dentist today.

It’s possibly my least favourite place on this planet.

But I need to find out what options I have to mend my broken tooth.

**Damn you bread!**

You on the other hand can check this out.

P.P.S. I couldn’t have written today’s post without the help of The University of Utah Health Science
