What does our great-great-great grandparents’ lifestyles have to do with whether or not we’re susceptible to certain diseases? Everything, apparently! Our genes determine everything about us, and our lifestyles influence how our genes are expressed, not only in our bodies, but in the bodies of our descendants! Today we discuss essential oils and genetics with David Krantz, certified Epigenetic Coach who specializes in boosting cognitive function and helping clients harness their creative and personal power. As a lifelong musician, David sees the various systems of the body as parts of a complex symphony. And, as a coach, he excels at fine-tuning those parts to create resonant harmonious health.  

Interested in how your unique genetic signature affects the way your body processes certain foods, tolerates different stress levels, and predisposes you to certain medical conditions? David shares how reading your genetic markers and recommending specific essential oils, foods, and exercise levels can make the all the difference between health and illness.
