“the study of changes in organisms caused by modification of gene expression rather than alteration of the genetic code itself”
Following that exposure I attended a seminar that went into quite a bit of detail over an hour which explained the 6 different ‘geno-types’ or bio types and how they all behave and why they are different. The types of foods that suit them better. They types of exercise that suit them more than others. The places they would be best suited to living, e.g. warm climate versus colder climate. The kinds of work places that would be best for them in terms of environment and how these and other elements play a large role in the overall health of the individual. Beyond this it also covered the minds of these people and how they are so very different and driven by different neurotransmitters (chemicals) in the body. Once this seminar had finished I was more keen, but as I've learnt since then my own bio type is particularly sceptical – this means I didn’t warm to this concept straight away. I needed more evidence!
Fast forward to about 9 months and after hearing more and more about epigenetics, listening to podcasts, talking to colleagues who had completed the course I discovered it was being run in Auckland so stuck my hand up – yes I had enough evidence that my scepticism was quashed!
