    As a kinesiology practitioner, Rebecca has a special interest in epigenetics and attends workshops with Epigenetics International to learn about how perception creates the biology of our bodies. Epigenetics is mediated by environmental signals through perceptions which in turn can change the read out of our genes. The new frontier of science is the field of epigenetics and this new science is finding that when toxins interfere with the human genome they can cause lasting damage. Epigenetic weaknesses magnify during aging and are major factors in the cause of cancer, heart disease, neurological and cognitive disorders, obesity, diabetes and infertility.
