Nature and Nurture
Everyone has genetic predispositions, those things that “run in the family.” For many this is a list of conditions such as obesity, heart disease, diabetes and arthritis. Sound familiar? Epigenetics brings a positive perspective to the fear and uncertainty that comes from checking all those boxes on a health history form. We now know that healthy lifestyle choices have the power to influence and even override our faulty genetic codes.
Families pass on both DNA and lifestyle habits that serve as epigenetic signals to that DNA. Nutritional choices, exercise, stress management and environmental exposures all influence whether genes get turned on or remain silent. While epigenetic marks are reversible (e.g. activated genes can be deactivated), healthy habits that start early in life can prevent negative genes from ever being activated in the first place.
Join host Tina Van Horn, Director of Research and Business Development at SL Technology, Inc., a Reliv Company, to learn what you can do to promote optimal health for everyone in your home. The webinar is open to all and takes place LIVE at noon CT this Thursday, May 21. Invite friends and bring your questions for the live Q&A immediately following the 15-minute presentation.

A friend introduced me to Reliv three years ago. After four months on the products, I went to a routine doctor appointment, and for the first time in 20 years he told me my cholesterol was back within the normal range. That really got me excited! He said to keep doing what I was doing because the results were proof that my health was improving.
I’ve had the same doctor since I was nine years old, and he has seen four generations of my family. My heart-related problems are genetic and I had four stress tests and a heart catheterization by age 35. But that was before Reliv and LunaRich®.
Over the next 18 months on Reliv, my health improved so much that we were both shocked. While I once had trouble walking up a flight of stairs, I’m now out walking six miles without difficulty. High blood pressure, fainting spells and breathing problems are no longer issues — nothing is holding me back! I’ve lost more than 30 pounds by using Reliv Now® and LunaRich X™ in the Super Pack. I’m healthier at 46 than I was at 26 and couldn’t have done it without my Reliv.
