Dr. Sergio Pecorelli’s presentation at the 2017 Global Wellness Summit was a new perspective on the beginning of life and how wellness lifestyles before conception can determine the health of the entire lifetime and for future generations. Dr. Pecorelli challenged delegates to look before the traditional 1,000 days and recognize that the health of both parents during the pre-conception period, including their emotional wellness, can impact their child’s health for a lifetime.
The response of this presentation has fueled one of the trends selected by the Global Wellness Summit for 2018!
This new trend puts sharp focus on the role of epigenetics, which is the study of changes in gene function that can be inherited but do not change the underlying DNA sequence. We also explore how environmental and lifestyle factors, along with emotional and social stresses, can alter a baby’s development during pre-conception, pregnancy and the first two years.
