gaynorMitchell L. Gaynor, MD, author of THE GENE THERAPY PLAN: Taking Control of Your Genetic Destiny with Diet and Lifestyle. Dr. Gaynor is the founder and president of Gaynor Wellness and a clinical assistant professor of medicine at Weill-Cornell Medical College with more than 25 years of experience treating patients. His work has been featured in the New York Times and he has appeared on many national television programs, including Good Morning America, The Dr. Oz Show, and The Martha Stewart Show.

While conventional medicine focuses on treating symptoms with prescription drugs, Dr. Gaynor’s path-breaking plan goes straight to the most fundamental level: our DNA. We cannot alter the genes we are born with, but we can change how they are expressed over the course of our lives through targeted foods and supplements. The Gene Therapy Plan presents clear and evidence-based approaches to diet, including juices, recipes, and menus. Empowering and informative, with inspiring stories from Dr. Gaynor’s decades of clinical practice, this forward-looking book by the author of Nurture Nature, Nurture Health puts your genetic destiny back into your own hands.
Diet, Disease & Destiny: Optimize Your Health with the Gene Therapy Plan
What's written in your DNA is your destiny, right?

Maybe not.

Mitchell L. Gaynor, MD, author of The Gene Therapy Plan, explains how nutrition can change the way your genes behave; leading you toward or away from disease.

This means you should be eating specific, healthy foods to help lower your risk of serious health problems that might run in your family, such as cancer, heart disease, and diabetes.

Join Dr. Roizen and Dr. Gaynor as they discuss this interesting way to think about disease prevention at the genetic level.
