In this episode of Art of Authenticity, we had an inspirational conversation with, Dr. Paul Sharad, geneticist and author.

Today on the show, we welcome Dr. Sharad Paul. Dr. Paul is a world-renowned geneticist and thought leader on the topic of genetics. Dr. Paul has discovered how to tap into genes to figure out who we really are, what makes us tick and how we can hack our own genetic codes to become the best version of ourselves. He is also the author of The Genetics Of Health, a book he wrote to help us take charge of our health by understanding the connection between our evolutionary past and our future wellbeing.

But what does it mean to think about genetics in terms of authenticity? How do we tie the way we are made, or our blueprint, into how we live and become our truer self – in our health, our life and our business? Dr. Paul has his MD, a Masters in Philosophy and Law and has some extremely thoughtful, human and personal perspectives on health. In this episode, we explore how ow our unique DNA effects the way we respond to everyday things like food, exercise, stress, prescription drugs and even coffee!
