188: Can Genetics Predict Our Diseases? Interview With Kara Krueger
In today’s culture, our society is bombarded with countless 3-month fitness routines, weight-loss supplements, quick-fix meds, and incomplete education on how to get in healthier shape.
The problem with so many of these things is that they're often temporary one-size-sorta-fits-all options. Our bodies are much more complex. They require us to treat ourselves with much more attention to genetic detail.
That’s why on today’s episode of Personal Development Without The Fluff, we’ll be discussing all of this with epigenetic and nutrition expert Kara Krueger. Kara is a Certified Nutrition Counselor, an educated Epigenetic Counselor with the Apeiron Academy and is certified by the National Association of Certified Natural Health Professionals. She runs Peak Wellness Group which offers various health counseling services in person, online, and in group settings.
Listen to this in-depth discussion to help you understand how crucial of a role epigenetics plays in your personal health practices.

The Cliff Notes:
- Environmental circumstance and nutrient deficiency are often overlooked in addiction and/or mental health management.
- Although intimidating, learning your body’s genetic propensities is invaluable for optimizing your longevity.
- Understanding our genetics can help determine the best and worst ways to treat plenty of health conditions.
- We always look for quick fixes to uncomfortable symptoms, but we should really look into what’s causing our body to have those symptoms.
- We need to invest in our health preventatively as opposed to reactionary.
- Our comfort zones are what can hold us from experiencing a greater quality of life and health.
- The ability to affect and change gene expression helps us prevent or delay the onset of our genetic propensities.
- Diets are unique to each person. Some will work well for you while others might be dangerous for you.
“The comfort zone is what keeps us sick.”- Kara Krueger
