It has always been my intention to tap into the body’s innate wisdom. I feel strongly that communication with the genetic blueprint is possible if…and this is a big if…our hormones are in balance. By focusing on the hypothalamus which directs all the hormones including neurotransmitters and immune cytokines, I was able to get my own hormones in balance and hundreds of others over the past thirteen years.
I believe that the best way is to get the body to create its own hormones – hence I take and recommend Genesis Gold®.

Mankind has been genetically engineering species since the beginning of civilization through selective breeding, but Genetically Modified Organisms—GMOs—are different. According to the World Health Organization, GMOs are “organisms in which the genetic material (DNA) has been altered in such a way that does not occur naturally.” [Read more…] about Genetically Modified Food and Your Health
Mental illnesses like Bipolar, Schizophrenia, Schizo-Affective disorder, Unipolar and more, are treated by psychiatric medications that alter the brain chemistry. A scary thought for those who remember the older ones. But there are a lot of new therapies out there, and each person reacts differently to them, so experimentation is required.
