earlier in my career as a research scientist and medical school professor, i
actively supported the perspective that the human body was a "biochemical
machine ?programmed? by its genes. we scientists believed that our strengths,
such as artistic or intellectual abilities, and our weaknesses, such as
cardiovascular disease, cancer or depression, represented traits that were
preprogrammed into our genes. hence i perceived life?s attributes and deficits,
as well as our health and our frailties as merely a reflection of our heredity
until recently, it was thought that genes were self-actualizing?that genes
could ?turn themselves on and off.? such behavior is required in order for genes
to control biology. though the power of genes is still emphasized in current
biology courses and textbooks, a radically new understanding has emerged at the
leading edge of cell science. it is now recognized that the environment, and
more specifically, our perception (interpretation)of the environment, directly
controls the activity of our genes. environment controls gene activity through a
process known as epigenetic control.
this new perspective of human biology does not view the body as just a
mechanical device, but rather incorporates the role of a mind and spirit. this
breakthrough in biology is fundamental in all healing for it recognizes that
when we change our perception or beliefs we send totally different messages to
our cells and reprogram their expression. the new-biology reveals why people can
have spontaneous remissions or recover from injuries deemed to be permanent

Re: Mind Over Genes: The New Biology
just this evening i was reading an article in spirituality &
health magazine about bruce lipton. the very first sentence
was: "the mystic healer edgar cayce once said, "remember that
thoughts are things, and as their currents run, they can become
crimes or miracles." then it stated that lipton suggests cayce was
right, and that "we are not victims of our genes, but masters of our
