Scientific studies showing that our DNA (and consequently, immune system etc.) is directly influenced by our feelingsSome eye-opening, revolutionary experiments have been carried out by the Institute of Heart Math in California. These highly important studies have shown that our emotions affect our DNA and that the nature of the effect depends on the nature of the emotion felt (the pertinent paper was published under the forbidding title "Local and Non-Local Effects of Coherent Heart Frequencies on Conformational Changes of DNA").
In a nutshell, these studies uncovered the following major facts relating to health:
DNA changes its shape according to the feelings we feel.
When we feel gratitude, love, compassion, appreciation, the DNA responds by relaxing and unwinding its strands, with the length of the DNA extending and our immune response being enhanced.
When we feel anger, jealousy, fear, frustration, stress, etc., our DNA responds by contracting/tightening/becoming shorter, with our immune response being depleted and many DNA codes being swiched off/shut down.
Both of these effects are reversible if we switch to a different (opposite) feeling state, as above.
How would these findings relate to the health of our teeth? Well (perhaps surprisingly to some), our teeth contain DNA (in fact, DNA from dental material is used in forensic medicine, research on millennia-old mummies, in murder investigations etc.). So while I have no data at this point corroborating that dental DNA reacts identically to the above, there is a possibility that it might, and the consequences good or bad would be obvious.
In any case, it's extraordinary that we possess as Dr. Bruce Lipton, Dr. Dawson Church and Dr. Gregg Braden have described, the power to change the way our DNA works via our emotions (and thoughts).
And I don't think it can hurt (in fact the opposite), to cultivate feelings of gratitude, appreciation, joy, and love, since Gratitude Helps Heal.
