Genetics and Personality: How Your Genes Affect Your Brain Chemistry

Broadcast on November 17, 2022
With Dr. J Dunn
Hosted by Dr. Robyn Benson

Understanding the connection between brain chemistry and genetics can give us great compassion for ourselves and others who are struggling with depression, anxiety, PTSD, ADD, addictions, and more. Dr. J Dunn will give you an overview of how your brain chemistry and personality are affected by the genes you inherit. In addition, she will describe how these can be modified through nutrients and diet to actually change your genetic expression through a process called epigenetics. 

In this session, you’ll discover:

  • Understanding that the way you are is partly based upon genetics leads to self-compassion
  • The core genes that affect your brain and how to work with them
  • Nutrients and diet can modify how your genes work through a process called epigenetics
The views expressed are specific to the author/speaker and may vary from the perspectives of The Shift Network's participants, staff, or other speakers.
