We are also what alters and changes us. How do we deal in the long term with food shortages or excesses, environmental influences and situations of constant stress? An exploration into our adaptive response through epigenetics studies.
I take two mice (ahinoids, still these searches use animals). One I look after him at birth, another I do not. The second will have an epigenetic signature that will make it more vulnerable to stress and the signs will be visible on the hippocampus. The first mouse will have a more stress-resistant phenotype.
It is called epigenetics the branch of genetics that studies the interaction of genes with the environment. The phenotype is nothing more than what develops from this interaction.
The number of acupuncturists and holistic practitioners working with different techniques on the meridians of Traditional Chinese Medicine is growing worldwide. This phenomenon goes hand in hand with the increasing demand from people for alternative and natural healing methods. Unfortunately, however, despite this, the purists of science continue not to consider acupuncture and other techniques derived from it as legitimate treatments.
However, it seems that at last science has recently been able to visually verify the existence of acupuncture and meridian points. The latter are vessels inside the body that conduct vital energy, just as if they were wires of an electrical circuit.
