Topic: Epigenetics - a Source of Biochemical Individuality influencing Brain & Behavioral Health
Abstract: While Diet, lifestyle, Environmental stressors and stressful life events create biochemical imbalances, the root cause often goes back to genetics and epigenetics (influence of environmental factors in a person’s life that turn genes ‘on’ and ‘off’ without changing the DNA sequence). Nutrient imbalances (both deficiencies and excess) can alter brain levels of key neurotransmitters and in turn lead to brain and behavioral health issues. Biochemical factors influence our personalities, behaviors, mental health and immune functions and overall health. We are all Biochemically unique. Understand the correlation of Doshas and Biochemical individualities / Biotypes influenced by Epigenetics. Reviewed along with case presentations.
