I just read your blog, with joy! Thank you for posting it. It's a pleasure to hear your thoughts, so loving, authentic and well-articulated. I was especially touched by something you wrote May 2004: "...Steve points out that my energy is like a magnet to which others flock, asking to be shown the way, but I am not the way. What they perceive as divine in me is their own reflection."
To me, this speaks to the essence of you. You are a magnet of healing energy. You always remind me that I carry that same energy within me. I feel empowered, happy and hopeful after seeing you. What a blessing you are in my life!

I was sweating.A lot. I was unable to sleep through the night.I had a bloated stomach. I weighed almost 170 lbs.I was an out of control bitch.My doctor insisted I was too young for menopause but I begged for blood work to be sure and the results showed I was in full blown menopause at age 46.I started seeing Deborah who did a full examination, including extensive blood and stool evaluation.She inquired about my daily habits, my work life, my sex life and my spiritual life.I was started on a rather intense regimen of supplements, including her fabulous Genesis Gold®, and topical hormones.The supplements were gradually decreased as my body responded.I am still taking Genesis Gold and topical hormones.Today, at age 55, I look 15 years younger, weigh 128 lbs, do not sweat, sleep beautifully and have a healthy sex drive and ability to fully enjoy my life with an energy others cannot believe. I am a devoted patient and have recommended her services to many others.Worth every single penny.

Working with Deborah, I have experienced major improvements in my overall health. My energy level is higher which has enabled me to get on an exercise program. This has allowed me to have great success with weight loss. My hormones are balanced, my blood work, attitude, appearance all reflect these changes. These improvements have made me a happier and healthier person. I have surpassed personal goals that I only dreamed of reaching. I feel a sense of contentment and a peace of mind that I never want to lose.

My family calls you - the Fertility Goddess! Says that if it wasn't for you, 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!

AND after years of irregular periods, the period after I saw you started exactly 28 days, and this last one, at only 29 days!I'm so excited.My body is changing for the better! Anyway, life has come alive in some many ways for me.I'm embracing my woman-ness and expanding my mind.Thank you for being a big part of this process for me!

First and foremost, Deborah listens to her patients. I have been going to her for over ten years. She is the one who found my blood sugar problem, mixed with adrenal hormone issues. I had never heard of DHEA before I met her. She also caught my uterine cancer before it was too late.

Down through the years I've had many different (employer-provided) health care plans, and so many changes in primary care doctors and specialists.The one constant in the past decade has been Deborah Maragopoulos.She's been my go-to person.Without fail I regularly consult her and without fail she's given me the information I needed to deal with my health concerns, many hormone-related.When I've had menopausal- and thyroid-related problems, it's been Deborah who's explained to me what's going on inside me and it's been Deborah who's come up with a treatment plan.Deborah has an astonishing understanding of the hormonal system and an ability to step back and see relationships among the various components.I've not found a doctor (including those within our own family) who evinces as good an understanding of the inner workings of the human body or as astute an ability to diagnose, find solutions, and communicate with me. Truly, I cannot imagine healthcare without Deborah.

Deborah is brilliant. Her knowledge of the human body amazes me. And with her knowledge and compassion, she has helped me so much with chronic fatigue syndrome. God bless her!

I have known Deborah Maragopoulos for about 14 years, first as a professional colleague and fellow nurse practitioner and then as a personal friend.Deb has 'saved" my life more than once.Her treatment of me during menopause helped me get through it without virtually any symptoms.I have been taking Genesis Gold® for about eight years.I started taking it before have major back surgery.I was told I would be in the hospital for at least two weeks.I was out in 3 1/2 days.The neurosurgeon could not believe it.I truly attribute that to Genesis Gold®.There is no other reason.Deb has helped me grow older without taking prescriptive drugs.My cholesterol has decreased, my energy increased and my general health excellent, all under Deb's direction.I have listened to Deb's seminars and always find valuable and helpful information in her presentations.Deb is a professional health care provider who evaluates the entire person and determines an individualized plan based on the patient's needs.I cannot say enough great things about Deb.I can only say that anyone who becomes her patient or is able to participate in one of her seminar presentations is an extremely fortunate person and will lead a healthy and energetic life.
