Body chemistry begins with genes.  But as science has unravelled more and more of the genetic blueprint, it has become increasingly obvious that the presence of a gene is really only the first level of control.

The activity i.e. whether the gene is turned on or off ultimately determines the balance of chemicals in the body.

Imbalances in body chemistry are what ultimately bring on dis-ease.

The switching on and off of a host of genes is ultimately determined by lifestyle. 

Lifestyle is actually more than just whether you eat McDonald’s every night and sit on the couch.   Diet and exercise are significant role players, but your sleep patterns, your relationships, your hygiene habits, your stress levels and chemical habits all contribute. 

Small things can have a big impact on overall health.

I have watched students, colleagues, family members and friends struggle with bad body chemistry, because they’re making poor health choices.

Poor health choices are typically based on ignorance and/or poor advice.

I have studied and taught pharmacology for the past 20 years, but the information based on good science that I give my students,  is not packaged in such a way as to be easily accessible to the ordinary person.  

The reason I established Spoonful of Science is to make this science based advice accessible to individuals in their homes, schools and workplaces.
