Course Overview

Epigenetics is a leading area in healthcare research today, and most of what is known about it has been discovered only in the last ten years. At the 2013 Members’ Conference, Dr. Laura Stuve gave a brilliant talk on DNA and Epigenetics. Laura uses simple and effective analogies to explain a very complex topic. She also gives us clear and direct practical applications on the subject whether you are working at the Fundamentals level or doing the more advanced work of PaRama BodyTalk.

Laura Stuve, Ph.D., IBA Instructor

Dr. Laura Stuve is a Ph.D. molecular biologist, an Advanced Certified BodyTalk Practitioner, PaRama BodyTalk Practitioner, and Advanced Certified BodyTalk Instructor. She spent 25 years doing research in human molecular genetics in both academia and the biotechnology industry before transitioning into BodyTalk. She received her Ph.D. in Biochemistry from the University of California, San Francisco and went on to do a post-doctoral fellowship at Stanford, working on the Human Genome Project. She has directed numerous research projects focused on investigation of the genetic basis of human disease.

Laura's lifelong interest in alternative healing, Chinese medicine, dream interpretation and shamanism led her to discover BodyTalk. Laura has been practicing BodyTalk since 2005 and became a Certified BodyTalk Instructor in 2009. She teaches BodyTalk Fundamentals, Fundamentals Integration, BodyTalk: Macrocosmic BodyMind (Module 6), and BodyTalk Access. Additionally, Laura has a mentoring program for training BodyTalk students that provides a structured instructor-facilitated environment for learning BodyTalk.

"We are a spectacular, splendid manifestation of life. We have language … We have affection. We have genes for usefulness, and usefulness is about as close to a “common goal” of nature as I can guess at."
–Lewis Thomas

Course Description

Laura first discusses genes and the human genome. The presentation also takes a look inside the biology of the cell. Understanding the inner workings of DNA and how it is used to make proteins gives students an understanding of how disease originates. The course then takes a look at two primary types of genetic mutations: those that are inherited and those that are the result of daily “mistakes” made by your own cells. The second half of the lecture focuses primary on the role of epigenetics and lifestyle in health and disease. Laura provides many example of how epigenetic factors might come up and how we can address them in our BodyTalk sessions.
