Genetics Isn’t Everything

Epigenetics proves that environment, food, lifestyle, and daily toxin exposure can lead us down a path of health or illness, depending on the decisions we make every day.

A happy and healthy life, while not guaranteed to everyone, is within reach. You can change your genetic destiny. You can take back your life!

Genetics Isn’t Everything:

Epigenetics proves that environment, food, lifestyle, and daily toxin exposure can lead us down a path of health or illness, depending on the decisions we make every day. By supporting the genes you were born with, you can live a healthier and happier life—and your jeans will fit better too. Guaranteed!

Working outside our passion is exhausting, but facing a life with illness or even a lack of energy is what really stops us from achieving our true potential. From a young age Katherine S. Egan intuitively avoided Styrofoam, plastic containers, and microwaves without ever thinking she would one day be destined to write, teach, and become an internationally certified holistic health coach, helping others learn how to achieve an extraordinary and healthy life. Her true mission? To spread hope.

“My passion is to help people understand that genetics isn’t everything. Just because you have certain family traits and genes or certain diseases seem to run in your family, there is no guarantee that you will get the same illnesses or conditions as your parents or grandparents.”

Genetics Isn’t Everything shares wrenching yet heartwarming stories about women who have taken health into their own hands and ultimately changed their lives with nutrition and self-care. A happy and healthy life, while not guaranteed to everyone, is within reach. You can change your genetic destiny. You can take back your life!
