Frequently Asked Questions about Genesis Gold®:






Q: What is Genesis Gold®?


Genesis Gold® is a natural nutritional supplement, I created to keep Hormones in Harmony™, balance the brain chemistry, enhance immune function and help you reach your optimal state of wellness.




Q: What can Genesis Gold® do for me?


Genesis Gold® can help retune the body by:

·     Harmonizing hormones, especially in those hormonally challenged by male and female menopause, pre-menstrual syndrome, hypothyroidism, insulin resistance, insomnia, obesity, adrenal fatigue.

·     Balancing brain chemistry, especially in those suffering from depression, anxiety, forgetfulness, mental fog, and learning disabilities.

·      Enhancing immune function, especially in those exposed to air-borne germs like travelers, teachers, students.



Q: How does Genesis Gold® optimize wellness?


Genesis Gold® provides the body with the necessary micro-nutrients often missing in our diets to prevent dis-ease. 


Q: I am very gluten sensitive, does that eliminate Genesis Gold® as support for hormonal balance since it contains kamut?

Genesis Gold does contain Kamut Sprouts. Sprouted forms of grains are GLUTEN FREE. I included sprouted forms of ancient grains to help heal the hypersensitivity issues so many people have developed from the consumption of high gluten modern grains. I have had patients with celiac disease do very well on the Genesis Gold formula.





Q: Do I need a consult to determine if I should start with Genesis Gold®  or Sacred Seven® ?



  • No, you do not need a consult to determine which product is best for you.
  • Genesis Gold® is the foundation formula that includes whole foods naturally rich in micronutrients including vitamin, minerals and antioxidants, adaptogenics herbal blend, digestive support, detoxification support, and complete neuro-immune-endocrine support plus the Sacred Seven®  amino acids to optimize hypothalamic function. (The hypothalamus is the maestro of the entire neuro-immune-endocrine system)


    I recommend Sacred Seven® amino acids in addition to Genesis Gold®  if you have depression, anxiety and/or want to get off meds for these disorders, a learning disability, severe hormone depletion symptoms likely newly menopausal, autoimmune thyroiditis or food allergies and may be sensitive to the whole foods in Genesis Gold®  (after 2-3 months on Sacred Seven®  alone the hypothalamus balances enough to decrease hypersensitivity and Genesis Gold®  can be taken)


Q: Can Genesis Gold® help increase energy?


  • Many people suffering from fatigue have noticed an increase in energy after taking Genesis Gold®.
  • By providing the natural micronutrients necessary to enhance mitochondrial function the basal metabolic rate increases which enhances your energy.


Q: Can Genesis Gold® help me lose weight?


  • Obesity is a complicated problem due to malnutrition, upset metabolism, low energy expenditure, chronic stress, and sleep deprivation.
  • By supporting optimal function of the hypothalamus, the part of the brain which controls appetite, basal metabolic rate and the weight set point, Genesis Gold® may enhance weight loss in conjunction with a healthy diet and exercise.
  • Hormonal imbalances contribute to sluggish metabolisms. Genesis Gold® helps harmonize the hormones.
  • Cellular toxicity can slow energy production and lead to a sluggish metabolism. Genesis Gold® provides the micronutrient support to detoxify at the cellular level and speed up energy production.


Q: Can Genesis Gold help reverse Insulin Resistance?


Thankfully Genesis Gold®  does help reverse insulin resistance. By balancing the hypothalamus, Genesis Gold® optimizes pancreatic insulin production as well as adrenal function which controls the release of stroed sugar necessary to fuel your stress response.


Of course I also work with my patients on their diet as insulin resistance will cause an elevation in cholesterol too (it's not fat but sugar that raises the bad cholesterol). 


I explain all this with graphics in Chapter 7: Stress and the Sweet Thief of my new book Hormones in Harmony®



Q: Can Genesis Gold® help lower cholesterol?


I created Genesis Gold® to balance your hormones and your hypothalamus which helps lower cholesterol. That's because hormones specifically steroid hormones like estrogen, progesterone and cortisol are made from LDL cholesterol. whenever I see a patient with elevated cholesterol, I start working on balancing their hormones.

Now balance takes time, so the effect on your cholesterol will not be seen for at least three months. In the original research it took six months to bring down total cholesterol in the most hormonally challenged patients, but their cholesterol ratio was healthier (with HDL rising to >30% of total cholesterol in the first three months).  I measure LDL and HDL particle size and Genesis Gold definitely improves both protective LDL and HDL particles.



Q: Can Genesis Gold® help my mental fog?


  • Mental fog is a great description of what happens to our brains during the aging process, when under high chronic stress levels and when hormonally challenged. (Ask any woman with PMS and she'll tell you her brain functions at less than optimal certain times of the month!)
  • Many patients using Genesis Gold® note an increase in brain function, particularily less forgetfulness, enhanced mental acuity, and memory.

Q: How does Genesis Gold® help learning disabilities?


  • Disabled brain function has been shown to be related to an undernourished brain.  Genesis Gold® provides all the essential nutrients for optimal brain function.
  • Genesis Gold® is rich in essential amino acids—the building blocks for neurotransmitters that enhance cognition.
  • Genesis Gold® is rich in essential fatty acids, like DHA, that enhances neurotransmission and has been shown to improve learning disabilities such as ADHD.
  • Genesis Gold®'s unique whole foods blend is naturally rich in powerful healing micronutrients that optimizes brain function.


 Q: How can Genesis Gold® improve mood disorders?


  • Depression and anxiety has been associated with undernourished brains. The optimal micronutrient absorbability in Genesis Gold® enhances neurotransmitter function as evidenced by improved patient moods.
  • Those wishing an alternative to drug therapy have used Genesis Gold® under psychologist recommendations successfully.
  • Adding Sacred Seven™ to the Genesis Gold® can enhance neurotransmitter recovery.


Q: Is Genesis Gold® all I have to take?


Genesis Gold® replaces most of your supplement needs, if not all. Genesis Gold® replaces supplements for digestive, immune, energy, brain, hormone health. Unlike any other supplement, Genesis Gold® is specifically formulated to support hypothalamus and optimize genetic expression.



Q: Would Genesis Gold® help someone with heat stroke induced hypothalamic dysfunction?


Yes, I believe so. But since your one friend's hypothalamus was damaged in childhood, it will take time for complete rejuvenation. Your friend may experience a decrease in the intensity of the migraines as well as the frequency before her body temperature stabilizes over the next 6-9 months. To hasten the response, I would recommend adding the Sacred Seven™amino acids to the Genesis GoldÒ. Although the Sacred Seven™amino acids are in Genesis Gold®, the extra dose will heal the hypothalamus much more rapidly.  


A young man with a severe head injury resulting in brain damage was given the Sacred Seven® amino acids with his gastric tube feeding in hopes of healing him more quickly then conventional medical treatments. His neurologists were impressed at the effect of the Sacred Seven® in stabilizing his body temperature.


Genesis Gold® will provide the balance of nutrients necessary to reverse years of damage by helping the body detoxify and supporting the glands that produce growth factors to heal the hypothalamus.




Q: Would Genesis Gold® help someone with depression?


I have used Genesis Gold®with the Sacred Seven™amino acids to help patients get off anti-depressants and anti-anxiety drugs. I have quite a few holistic psychologists who use both with their patients who wish to treat their mood disorders more naturally.


Genesis Gold®deepens sleep providing more melatonin to be converted into serotonin which helps stabilize mood. Genesis Gold®also seems to have a beneficial effect on dopamine stabilizing the mania and psychosis associated with high dopamine production. I believe Genesis GoldÒ is also affecting acetylcholine, because patients become much more spiritually aware....more attuned to their hearts...more compassionate to self and others. It's hard to prove the effects on neuro-transmitters since they cannot be measured, but the symptom reversal speaks for itself.



Q: I've been taking Genesis Gold® for years and receiving all the benefits...recently I have added 200 mg SAM-e in the morning and feeling a positive difference. Comment?


SAM-e is used to treat arthritis and depression, but the dose you are taking is very small. I suspect the Genesis Gold® is giving you enough foundational support that you can receive therapeutic benefits from such a tiny dose of SAM-e.


I have seen the same magnifying effects on other supplements and medications. Often I have to wean patients down from their drugs and supplemental regime used to treat specific dis-ease processes when they are on Genesis Gold®.



Q: Can Genesis Gold® be taken if I have a thyroid disease called "Hashimoto's Thyroiditis" and am currently taking Synthroid. If I take Genesis Gold do I need to be concerned about my thyroid levels changing?


  • Hashimoto's is a form of autoimmune thyroiditis which I have found responds really well to hypothalamic balancing. I use both Genesis Gold and extra Sacred Seven (which lowers the autoimmune antibodies way faster than suppressing the hypothalamic-pituitary-thyroid axis with high dose thyroid replacement therapy). The combination plus diet and lifestyle management helps to return the thyroid to normal function. 
  • Some patients may need thyroid hormone to supplement their low production but I prescribe non-synthetic thyroid hormone in a way to keep communication open between the hypothalamus, pituitary, and thyroid so they can eventually make their own thyroid hormone. Genesis Gold supports thyroid function as well as adrenal function and glucose metabolism which are also affected by the autoimmunity.  It's complicated but optimizing biochemistry is my playground :) 
  •  You can take Genesis Gold with thyroid hormone replacement. As your neuro-immune-endocrine      system comes into balance, you may need less thyroid replacement so have your levels checked about six months after starting Genesis Gold. 
  • I like to get to the root cause of my patient's dis-ease not just rest the symptom. They are rarely born ill, but rather acquire their conditions through environmental exposure and poor lifestyle choices. Everyone can heal. They just need to know how. 

Here's an article on Treating Thryroiditis Naturally  

Q; Why is Genesis Gold® dosed by body weight?

Genesis Gold was designed for children and adults alike. As a whole foods product, Genesis Gold delivers nutrient support by volume of powder and baseline needs are met according to body mass. 

A 50 pound child needs much less than a 120 pound woman who needs less than a 200 pound man. Some patients may need more than their body weight requires if they are very ill and malnourished, while other sensitive patients may need less and work up to their body weight. Overtime as they heal many patients require less, some as low as 75% of their body weight. 


Q: I've been taking Genesis Gold® faithfully until I went on vacation. Within a few days, I got hot flashes back. I'm a believer that Genesis Gold® really works, but will I have to take it forever?


That is a great question. Forever is a long time. I do know that it's not easy through even the best of diets to get all the nutrition we need for perfect health. Most people take multiple supplements to fill in the nutritional holes in their diets. I find it easier to take a single formula that supports my entire system- Genesis Gold®.



Q: If I take Genesis Gold® can I get off HRT?


Many of my patients completely wean off Hormone Replacement Therapy once on Genesis Gold® for 1-3 months. Go slowly, do not go cold turkey and stop HRT abruptly. Weaning over 8-12 weeks helps avoid hypothalamic backlash like insomnia and hot flashes.


Q: Can men take Genesis Gold® too?


Yes. Genesis Gold® is formulated for human physiology, dosed by body weight. Genesis Gold®  supports sex steroids, adrenals, thyroid, glucose metabolism, immune system and brain health. Men benefit as much as women from partaking of Genesis Gold®.



Q: Can my child take Genesis Gold®?


Many children have taken Genesis Gold® and do very well. Children seem to tolerate the herby taste much better that adults. Children often express the need or desire for Genesis Gold®. Since 2003, children from toddlers to adolescents have enjoyed the benefits of Genesis Gold®.



Q: I've been trying to get pregnant can Genesis Gold® help?


Genesis Gold® is not treatment for infertility, but it can balance hormones that may be out of balance and contributing to infertility. Since 2005, seven babies have been conceived by mothers taking Genesis Gold®. Some take it throughout pregnancy.


One patient consulted for infertility before Genesis Gold® was available. After hysteroscopy and a post coital test, we proceeded to insemination with bio-identical progesterone to support her through the first trimester. She conceived, but with significant weight gain, gestational diabetes and high blood pressure. After delivery, she suffered from post partum depression. Her child has a mild learning disability.


When she came back for second conception counseling, she asked about alternatives. I offered Genesis Gold®. She conceived in a couple months, used progesterone for her corpus luteal defect, and this time no gestational diabetes, no hypertension, no postpartum depression. Her second child is very healthy and well ahead of developmental milestones.


I have a patient with hypopituitary disorder (no periods, low thyroid, low adrenal and no pituitary hormone production, infertile). Over the years I've treated her with bio-identical hormones. After a year on Genesis Gold®, she wanted to start weaning off the HRT. We went very slowly over many months until she was having normal menses on her own without the hormones. She just delivered a healthy baby boy!



My family calls you - the Fertility Goddess! Says that if it wasn't for you and Genesis Gold® they know Nathan would not be here and they all say thank you! So thanks again for your help if it wasn't for you we would not have these two beautiful children! Words cannot express how grateful we are!

Q: I've been diagnosed with Chronic FatigueSyndrome, how can Genesis Gold® help?


Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is a challenging wastebasket diagnosis. We put patients into that wastebasket for symptoms of CFS when we can't find another cause. Multiple etiologies are known to contribute to CFS—hormonal issues, sleep disorders, low mitochondrial production, toxicities, viral infections, hypothalamic imbalance. My preference is to get to root of issue with each patient. I use Genesis Gold® as foundation to enhance energy production, improve detoxification, and balance hormones.



Q: Will Genesis Gold® help with heavy metals?


Genesis Gold® helps with detoxification by providing nutrients necessary to enhance hepatic (liver) detoxification as well as cellular detoxification.


Heavy metals take the place of minerals in the cell structure. I am a believer in detoxification and chelation therapies, but not too rapidly unless in the case of acute poisoning. Many patients are toxic for years so heavy metals actually make up part of their cell structure. Heavy metals affect receptor sites that allow hormones into cells blocking the lock so the hormonal key can't get in. Chelation therapy should be monitored by qualified health care practitioner.



Q: I have lot of food allergies. Can I take Genesis Gold®?


If you have allergies to any specific ingredient in Genesis Gold®, you may have symptoms. Most people do not have true food allergies but sensitivities. True allergies are mediated by immune globulins called IgE which cause major inflammatory response. For instance ingesting nuts in a IgE allergic individual can be fatal. That is why foods now contain warnings on their labels about nuts, since the tiniest trace on lips can cause anaphylaxis. Immune globulins are your immune systems way to alert your white blood cells to possible invasion by undesirable elements. Besides IgE, there are IgM, IgA, & IgGs. IgM is first response to infectious agent. IgA is a sensitivity first line response. IgG is a longer acting immune globulin marking past and chronic exposure. IgG sensitivities account for the majority of what we think are food allergies.  Reaction is not always noticed right away, sensitivity increases over time and over many exposures. Genesis Gold® seems to balance the thymus activity which controls the immune programming of the immune globulin response. Most patients notice less allergies, less sensitivities.



Q: I'm sensitive to arginine and I see it's in Genesis Gold® and Sacred Seven™.

Arginine is also in protein foods including meat, eggs, and diary as well as soy, nuts and beans. Most arginine sensitivity is dose related and in those with underlying herpes infections, high dose arginine can induce an outbreak. There is no more arginine in Genesis Gold® and Sacred Seven™ than in protein foods. Genesis Gold® has very small amount of Sacred Seven™ amino acids. If you choose to try either product, go slowly. Since the amino acids are balanced, there are less problems with overloading the body and inducing a herpetic outbreak. On the other hand, once the body becomes balanced with Genesis Gold®, herpes is no longer welcome by the immune system and comes to the surface to infect someone else.



Q: I find that green formulas cause intolerable detox reactions. Will Genesis Gold® make me sick?


The more toxic you are, the worse the reaction to super green foods.  It is important that the colon is functioning well (frequent bowel movements) to clear the toxicity. Go slowly, if you have diarrhea. If gas and bloating, there's probably a dysbiosis in the gut (imbalance of friendly flora). The most common culprit is yeast. Of course candida is a normal organism on skin and in every orifice but an overgrowth can cause fermentation in gut producing gas. Natural whole food products like Genesis Gold® are easily absorbed easily by you and by your yeast. If Genesis Gold®  causes gas and bloating, you may need a stool culture and sensitivity or better yet a complete digestive stool analysis to determine the if candida is a problem. More probiotics like acidophilus and bifidus and especially Saccharomyces can help. Or you can try natural anticandidial therapies like CanPlex.



Q: I started taking Genesis Gold® and noticed after a couple months, I have little warts on my hands. This has not happened since I was young. What's going on?


It is not unusual once the body is in balance for the immune system to start fighting off parasitic infections. Viruses can live in your system for years and need to replicate and find a new host when they are no longer welcome in you. Warts are caused by the Human Papilloma Virus. Those who are more compromised will take longer to show and clear miasms, like old infections. Miasm means a dark dank place and is a homeopathic term for old vibrations, belief systems, or molecular memories that need to be cleared.



Q: I'm on medication for my heart. Will Genesis Gold® interfere?


Although  most patients taking coumadin are advised not to eat green vegetables, coumadin can be adjusted to accommodate a healthy diet including super greens foods like Genesis Gold® My patients taking Genesis Gold® who are prescribed coumadin do well. It is best to adjust the drug to the patient, not the patient to drug.



Q: Will Genesis Gold® interfere with any other medications?


Genesis Gold®  has been taken with medications for hypertension, high cholesterol,  hormone replacement therapy (including male and female as well as thyroid, adrenal hormones, and insulin), birth control pills, drugs for diabetes, antibiotics, anti-virals, anti-fungals, anticonvulsants, antidepressants, anti-anxiety drugs with  no major reactions. Overtime many patients on Genesis Gold® can wean off chronic medications as their bodies become biochemically balanced.



Q: Deborah, do you take Genesis Gold®?


Yes.  Beginning in 2000 with the Sacred Seven™amino acids until Genesis Gold® was available in 2003,

  • I have not had to use bio-identical hormones to regulate my menstrual cycles.
  • I have not had to use antidepressants to regulate my sleep and moods.
  • I have not had to take lots of vitamins, minerals and other supplements to boost my energy.
  • I no longer need to exercise obsessively to maintain my figure, still fitting into jeans I wore in high school.
  • I look and feel 15 years younger, aging less rapidly than my peers.
  • All the while running a successful healing practice, publishing a book, speaking on the national circuit, taking care of a menagerie of animals and raising two teenagers.
