Everything in nature operates on a feedback loop. In tough times, our DNA triggers survival mechanisms that would be quite useful 30,000 years ago during a long, cold winter.
But unfortunately our culture is filled with distortions in our diets, lifestyles, and environments that trigger and re-trigger these survival mechanisms on a daily basis.
This is a good news - bad news situation.
First, the BAD NEWS: These triggers cause our bodies to pump hormones for our short-term survival instead of our long-term prosperity. This leads to the cycle of depression and disease that causes so much suffering in our world.
Now the GOOD NEWS: Our DNA is also equipped to help us thrive during the good times. Nature has pre-programmed our bodies for summer on the savanna. This feedback loop is also triggered and re-triggered by cues from our diet, lifestyle, and environment.
By giving our bodies the right signals on a daily basis we can naturally optimize our hormones and live in a cycle of ease.
