Influencing Your Genetics With Lifestyle w/ Shelly Sethi


Today’s Topic – Influencing Your Genetics

Genetics play a huge part of our life and our health. But, is it the end all be all? You’ve heard it time and time again that certain health issues “it runs in my family”. It’s true that genetics play a part of who we are. In this episode, you’ll find out that even though your genetics “gun” may be loaded, it doesn’t necessarily mean that the trigger will be pulled.

We have rebranded to Nuvitru Wellness!

Dr. Shelly Sethi comes on Nuvitru Wellness Podcast this week to explain how our lifestyle impacts our genetics.
