Publisher's Summary

What if the food we eat could target not only diabetes, obesity, heart disease, and cancer but the effects of aging? What if our diets could affect every aspect of our health by controlling the expression of our genes?

While modern medicine largely focuses on treating symptoms with prescription drugs, Dr. Gaynor's revolutionary approach goes straight to the most fundamental level: our DNA. Although we cannot change the genes we are born with, we can change how they are expressed over the course of our lives through foods and supplements that prevent and reverse disease. The Gene Therapy Plan presents the science behind these ideas and provides easy-to-follow meal plans and recipes to help put them into practice. Empowering and informative, this meticulously researched audiobook by the author of Nurture Nature, Nurture Health offers accessible prescriptions for freeing ourselves from what we thought was our genetic destiny.

Awesome information

Where does The Gene Therapy Plan rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

The research in this book is beautifully laid out. Some academic critics complain that his recommendations are not current enough, or that he's missed important pieces. As someone also teaching in the healthcare world, if someone reading this book implemented 1/1000'th of his suggestions, they would live longer. If your take away from this book is to stop eating chips and processed carbs (like cereal), you're well on your way to living longer. If you avoid peanuts moving forward, you're doing great also.

What did you like best about this story?

To those who complain about his long supplement lists, I love how the audible version stresses that you should pick one supplement to start with and see how it feels. Then you'd slowly add more only if you feel like it. He specifically says not to buy everything. He is giving you ideas and choices.

My take aways are to use more extra virgin olive oil, take green coffee extract and CLA, and eat more broccoli. These are three of the 500 possible suggestions that he has in this book, and I'll probably live longer for it.

Any additional comments?

Finally, I wish that the author rests in peace. For those who do not know, he recently committed suicide. We all harbor demons; this is human. We should recognize the contribution he made while on this planet.

This book made me a better person.

Integrative medicine

This is a great book if you are "into" integrative medicine and are interested in nutrition for good health. It us, at times, over the head of a layperson who does not have a background in medicine, but it is useful to the layperson nonetheless. It provides the reader with great information about supplements and foods for specific health concerns and ailments and does a great job of citing research and medical processes to back up his recommendations.

Mike Chamberlain was the star of this book

I was greatly disappointed the Dr. Haynot elected not to cite a single, specific study throughout this book. That, coupled with his alignment with two illconceived hypothesis propagayed by Dr. Ansel Keyes in the 1950s left me doubt any of the material presented.

Definite positive game changing ideas to health.

This book is a keeper for me.
I will listen to it again and again. I would like to advise every person with cancer at this time to think about reading this book because of all of its ideas of how to actually change your body for the better.
My daughter had Hodgkin's disease, and by following keto diet and taking her chemo she has never been healthier.
That being said, this book includes a lot of things that she did in her diet and some she did not but I've known by watching her live her change I've watched her live for the better. I will keep this book as an ongoing reference to things I can do so that I can do more things that I could do and can do if I make a change today.
