Transgenerational Epigenetic Inheritance

In this episode of heartbeat, Dr. Brooke Stuart dives into a discussion on transgenerational epigenetic inheritance. Through our power of choice and with the tools to interpret our system’s language, we can choose, starting where we are now, which path we would like to take. The power lies in our own hands, within our power of choice.

  • Transgenerational Epigenetic Inheritance: What a keyword- transgenerational epigenetic inheritance is the idea that epigenetic marks (i.e., DNA methylation, histone modifications) can be acquired on the DNA of one generation and stably passed on through the gametes (i.e., sperm and eggs) to the next generation. *definition taken from this article here!
  • Nature vs. Nurture: Like the connection between mind and body, nature and nurture are linked as well. What is brought by nature is effected by nurture and vice versa. Through the study of epigenetics, we can see how our life experiences and responses to them mark our DNA for generations to come.
  • The Power To Choose: Our choices matter, growth matters and health matters not just for the self in this lifetime but extending far beyond it. Like Lao Tzu once said, “Truly the greatest gift you have to give is that of your own transformation.” And now we are starting to see how it can mark our DNA, making it easier or more challenging for our offspring to breakthrough and break free.
  • Betterment: I love the words better and betterment, as I think it takes the pressure off of the process of improving, where we can focus on being better versus being perfect.
  • Connection: The more comfortable you are in your own skin the more comfortable you will be with others. Less noise, more access (to self) and connection. For more on this, feel free to check here.
