A huge reason why I chose my field of expertise -as both a fitness professional and holistic nutritionist, is to have people realize that our overall level of health is the result of many interacting factors of such as, physical activity (or lack of), diet, environment & stress. Yes genetics plays a part in predisposing us to certain conditions BUT as one of my professors engrained in my mind so wisely: “Genetics loads the gun, lifestyle pulls the trigger.” So why not make our own health a priority through wise choice and practice–  two factors we have most control over.
