Your genes are not your destiny: learn to prevent disease, improve brain function, and reverse the course of obesity and premature aging through easy-to-adopt nutrition and lifestyle changes that target your DNA

While we cannot alter the genes we are born with, we can prevent and reverse disease with foods, supplements, and lifestyle choices that turn good genes on and bad genes off. In his pathbreaking plan, Dr. Mitchell Gaynor--a renowned oncologist and pioneer in integrative medicine--focuses on obesity, heart disease, diabetes, cancer, and aging to explain what we can do to keep our bodies on their natural paths toward healthy, balanced functioning. The Gene Therapy Plan presents practical, evidence-based approaches to diet, including juices, recipes, and comprehensive meal plans. And it explains the cutting-edge science that is revolutionizing what we know about how our biology and our behavior intersect. Empowering and informative, with inspiring stories from Dr. Gaynor's decades of clinical practice, this forward-looking book puts our genetic destiny back into our own hands.

Review quote

Praise for The Gene Therapy Plan

"A guide to harnessing the power hidden in food to subvert a 'genetic predisposition for disease.' . . . Gaynor's informative tome is worth reading."
--Publishers Weekly "The Gene Therapy Plan identifies how the lives we lead, and in particular, the foods and nutritional supplements we ingest, are a key determining factor in whether latent disease (which most people have to some degree) materialize or stay dormant. By identifying researched nutritional protocols that target specific conditions, and by providing a range of rich case studies from his practice as a leading oncologist and internist, Dr. Gaynor provides insight and an action plan into how the body operates that will benefit medical practitioners and patients alike."
--Deepak Chopra, M.D. "The Human Genome Project promised to create a new era of genetic medicine, new drugs, and therapies to advance human health. But the real awakening has been the understanding of food--real whole foods, herbs, phytonutrients--as medicine and how it can literally upgrade your biologic software by improving the expression of your genes. In The Gene Therapy Plan Dr. Gaynor makes the healthcare of the future available to you today. If you want to learn how to use food and nutrients to prevent and even reverse most chronic disease, read this book!"
--Mark Hyman, M.D., Director of the Cleveland Clinic Center for Functional Medicine and author of the #1 New York Times bestseller The Blood Sugar Solution

Do yourself and your family a huge favor: Read this phenomenally important book and learn why and how you can live a healthier life."
--Devra Davis, Ph.D., M.P.H., founder and president of the Environmental Health Trust, author of The Secret History of the War on Cancer

"Dr. Gaynor is a visionary healer. This is a comprehensive, coherent, practical, and easily digestible resource for all who wish to 'tip the balance' away from disease toward health and wellness."
--Sheldon Marc Feldman, M.D., Vivian L.
