You can turn back the biological clock

What you do from an epigenetic perspective can be a game-changer.

Larisa’s lab can do extensive testing to find out exactly how your body works, and how you can adapt your lifestyle to get yourself living and thriving at an optimum level.

They test:

  • How your body reacts to certain foods and macronutrients
  • How your body absorbs different vitamins and minerals

We turn back the clock, but we turn back the biological clock, not the chronological clock, turning back your biological age. (Larisa Petrini)

Your technical age doesn’t matter as long as you feel good, energized, and ready for life!

Your body is programmed by your genetics

This amazing machine – your body – is programmed by your genes, whether you like it or not. Many of the adaptations that helped our ancestors survive are now making us unhealthy. (Larisa Petrini)

You can press the right buttons and get the shortcuts once you know what’s going on in your body.

Bloodwork analysis can help you to get a sense of what’s happening in your body, but epigenetics testing is what tells you how your body works, and how you can best take care of it.

What is epigenetics exactly? They are the genes that are activated based on your lifestyle.

Each lifestyle decision you make or take is all about epigenetics. In other words, epigenetics is about what you can influence in your lifestyle so that you don’t turn on those problematic genes you inherited. Epigenetics can help you navigate and turn off or deactivate those problematic genes. (Larisa Petrini)

The 10 things robbing your youth

1 – Putting on and holding onto large amounts of physical weight

2 – Sitting too much

3 – Taking medications mindlessly

4 – Eating too many refined carbs and overly processed foods

5 – Losing muscle mass

6 – Sleeping less or very little

7 – Insufficient vitamin D

8 – Living with stress or in chronically stressful environments

9 – Social isolation

10 – Lacking vision and purpose

You feel like you are in a prison, and you don’t like what you do every day. (Larisa Petrini)

Larisa’s solutions

1 – Stay away from the whites: sugar, flour, and dairy to maintain your weight. Diets don’t work, so don’t look for diets. Maintain a healthy weight by moving regularly and eating wholesome, nutrient-dense foods.

Sugar and flour are both addictive, so it’s not easy, but it’s possible. (Larisa Petrini)

Limit certain types of dairy products because they can increase inflammation.

3 – Prioritize great sleep, and get walking!

Taking care of our sleep is so important. Having a nighttime routine, going to bed at pretty much the same hour, waking up at pretty much the same hour, and catching what I’d like to call the primetime hours, between 10 pm and 2 am. (Larisa Petrini)

If you can add a semi-regular bedtime to your routine accompanied by a 10-minute walk a day, you will be doing your physical, mental, and emotional health a huge service! Your steps are important, even more so than big workouts.

These three strategies would be enough to see significant changes on the scale and in the way you feel. (Larisa Petrini)

Meet Veronica Cisneros

Veronica Cisneros | Empowered And Unapologetic PodcastI’m a licensed therapist and women walk into my office every day stressed and disconnected. As a mom of three daughters, I want my girls to know who they are and feel confident about their future. I can’t think of a better way to help other women than by demonstrating an empowered and unapologetic life.

So I started  Empowered and Unapologetic to be a safe space for women to be vulnerable and change their lives for the better before she ever needs to see a therapist.
