Seabrook, TX, December 19, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- Outskirts Press author Dr. Shaun Holt knows firsthand the trouble our nation faces when it comes to health. In his practice he sees how his patients have turned into fat-storing machines, and the epidemic of adult and childhood obesity, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, cancer, premature aging, and high blood pressure are the unhappy results. His new book, Beating Your Genetics; Discover the Code to a Lean Body, Vibrant Energy, and Ultimate Health, helps readers understand how to work with their own genetic programming to achieve optimal health and the ideal body weight.
The truth is that most of the food we eat is killing us—the plethora of starches, sugars, chemical food additives, and preservatives in our food are wreaking havoc on our bodies. Dr. Holt believes that most health problems can be corrected nutritionally, and through the principles outlined in Beating Your Genetics, the reader will naturally lose weight and enjoy increased energy levels. With this change in eating habits, the reader will also start to gain control over other related health problems as well.
Americans are seeing up to a 900% increase in cancer as well as autoimmune, cardiovascular, and neurodegenerative diseases as compared to when our parents and grandparents were kids. Some contend that the perceived increase is due to the improved sensitivity of our testing methods, but Dr. Holt vehemently disagrees. In Beating Your Genetics, he explains what has gone wrong with the human diet; what foods to consume and what foods to avoid; how to combine foods for optimal success; the power of the mind; how the body works, and the role of various nutrients. He also notes that most doctors look for answers from the pharmaceutical industry rather than from the grocery store.
Beating Your Genetics takes a sobering look at how our lifestyle has derailed our health as a nation, but it also offers an easy-to-implement solution if we’re willing to make the change—nutritionally enhancing our genetic birthright to a healthy, happy body.
