How Exercise Changes Our DNA

We all know that exercise can make us fitter and reduce our risk for illnesses such as diabetes and heart disease. But just how, from start to finish, a run or a bike ride might translate into a healthier life has remained baffling.

Now new research reports that the answer may lie, in part, in our DNA. Exercise, a new study finds, changes the shape and functioning of our genes, an important stop on the way to improved health and fitness.

 

genes

The human genome is astonishingly complex and dynamic, with genes constantly turning on or off, depending on what biochemical signals they receive from the body. When genes are turned on, they express proteins that prompt physiological responses elsewhere in the body.

  1. I learnt from the class of Hadhrat Khalifatul Messiah fourth (may Allah have mercy on his soul)this fact.He told that by changing the diet,surroundings,emotional conflicts,mental conflicts one can reverse the genetic diseases.In his Homeopathic classes, Hudur told that degeneration is reversible.The only condition irreversible is death of a cell.
    I asked Hadhrat Khalifatul Messiah atb for prayers.He answered “Walk Twice a day.
    My older son now 16 had strabismus or lazy eye syndrome.I noticed it when he was six months old.Hazrat KhalifatulMessiah rabay r.a advised silicia,Kali phos. I gave him,but it cured fully.I took him to Ophthalmologist for surgery. The surgeon asked to patch the right healthy eye and use the eye with poor vision.It was a hard order for a six year old.The doctor warned that he would loose vision in that eye.I knew this bitter truth because my one Pakistani doctor who is my best friend had this problem.She is a practising family physician In Hamilton Canada.We studied from grade one to grade 12 together.
    I gave him both the KaliPhos and Silicia in CM.By the grace of Allah,he didn’t lost vision. His eyes looks normal.He just has a slight myopia left.My friend with lazy eye tried this remedy for the son of his brother.
