There’s an exciting area of research called epigenetics and epigenetics in psychology is just as exciting! It shows us that we can start to modulate gene expression. That is we can decrease the risk of having mental unwellness even if it runs in our families. We can do this by our lifestyle.

In this video Dr Janelle discusses the risk of getting a mental illness if your 1st degree relative has the condition (hereditary depression). But she shows you that our genes, although playing a part in the risk of depression and bipolar disorder doesn’t have to have the final word. Epigenetics which is a key process for turning down our bad genes can impact genetics and depression, and the risk of getting a mental illness. Epigenetics vs genetics is a very interesting subject. Heredity and environment interact.

In this presentation Dr Janelle discusses epigenetics diet tips, lifestyle tips and supplements. Methylation and depression is an exciting topic that will be touched on in this video, but will be discussed in depth in future videos along with mthfr and depression (mthfr mutation and depression), and mthfr and anxiety.

  1. Have you ever heard about epigenetics? Does it give you more hope that you can overcome mental unwellness if it runs in your family? Interested to hear what you think about the topic. Also are there any genes that you want me to talk about in future videos?

  2. Very informative, I am by no means an expert, but could some of the reason behind the methylation process slowing down in the presence of a toxin('s) have some sort of protective mechanism that might be needed?
