Thirdly, daily physical exercise that activates capillaries and helps the heart pump the blood. And of course, it is the use of cutting-edge technologies that regulate gene expression.

According to the WHO, 50% of human health depends on the lifestyle, 20% depends on genes, 20% depends on the environment and 10% depends on healthcare.

We have found that we can impact our bodies through lifestyle. But we have not yet studied how biology or faith work, or how mentality impacts gene activation or deactivation. We keep working on maximizing brain activity and perception to override our biology — David Verdesi, Anthopologist; author of the Superhuman methodology based on the research of world religions and the latest discoveries in quantum physics and neurobiology.
