He has researched the field of behavioral epigenetics, which holds the promise of modifying behavior by changing gene expression. Baird holds a PhD in natural health and is the author of six books on human behavior. He has won many awards and appeared on major TV stations and dozens of radio shows. His most recently published book is Behavioral Genes-Why We Do What We Do and How to Change.

Behavioral Genes Made Us Do It, and How To Undo it With Epigenetics

By |February 9th, 2015|Epigenetics|

We often wonder why do we do the things we do? For a very long time, people have speculated, theorized, lectured, argued, and written books, poems, and plays about that very mystery. Ancient philosophers philosophized about it, and theologians gave us their opinion, based on articles of faith. In those earlier days, with no reliable [...]

Changing Our Genetic Behavior with Epigenetic

By |February 8th, 2015|Epigenetics|

  Until recent times, it has been assumed that the reason why we behave the way we do, is due to our inherited genetic programming modified by our environment, over generations –in other words - evolution. However, it has recently been discovered that we are not prisoners of our genes in our lifetime; rather, we [...]

Decreasing Anxiety by Epigenetics

By |February 8th, 2015|Epigenetics|

Epigenetics is the science of genetic changes in gene expression or cellular phenotype caused by mechanisms other than changes in the underlying DNA sequence. Examples of the chemistry of such changes might be DNA methylation or histone deacetylation, both of which serve to suppress gene expression without altering the sequence of the silenced genes. In simple terms, it’s the science of why two people [...]

The Voice in Our Head

By |January 25th, 2015|Epigenetics|

Will the ‘voice in our head’ determine our survival? A somewhat humorous, but deadly serious situation   Our unconscious mind In very early times, our species, like animals were guided by our instincts. But a little later in the evolutionary process, we grew a mind, assumedly to provide improved survival guidance in a changing environment. [...]

Does Science Prove God

By |January 24th, 2015|Epigenetics|

A belief in God or an universal spirit is hardwired in our brains, is demonstrated by the polls that consistently show that such a belief in all countries and all cultures is over 90%. But while it's  credible evidence that humans believe in God,  from a scientific viewpoint that doesn't necessarily mean that there is a [...]

Our Intuitive Mind

By |December 30th, 2014|Epigenetics|

our prehistoric ancestors  had an intuitive mind, which is often described as  a gut reaction. in those days, a quick response was critical for survival.  menacing animals, other tribes,  dangerous weather changes,  and a host of other threats, instigated the flight or fight instinct. While their intuitive mind  was critical for survival in their environment, [...]

Happiness by Epigenetics

By |December 29th, 2014|Epigenetics|

Happiness is at your fingertips, or rather sitting in your DNA, right now! The new science of epigenetics reveals there are reserves of natural happiness within your DNA that can be controlled by you, by your emotions, beliefs and behavioral choices. Happiness Genes proves that there is a definitive link between science and spirituality—that you [...]
