Dr. Mitchell L. Gaynor
The Gene Therapy Plan
From a renowned oncologist and pioneer in integrative medicine, a breakthrough in treating and preventing disease by altering our genetic blueprint.
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 book by the author of Nurture Nature, Nurture Health offers accessible prescriptions for freeing ourselves from what we thought was our genetic destiny and changing our genes for optimal health.
