Genesis Gold® Side Effects

Does Genesis Gold® have side effects? What are the Genesis Gold® side effects?


Well, frankly everything potentially has side effects.

Genesis Gold® is a foundational hypothalamic formula – which means it not only supports optimal hypothalamus function which balances hormones, it helps support optimal cellular metabolism.  And when the body gets what it needs to function optimally- there are side effects of healing. 

The most common side effects of Genesis Gold are associated with detoxification.

Before balancing your hormones, your hypothalamus needs to clean the house. That means clearing stored toxins. Detoxification can be very unpleasant.  Increased urination, defecation, and sweating can occur as your body gets rid of toxins. If your liver and gut are not functioning well, your skin can breakout in rashes and pimples. That’s because when you can’t release toxins through your bowels, they get released through your skin. Sometimes headaches can occur as you’re detoxifying.  Drinking lots of fluids can help your body clear toxins faster. Also, be sure you’re having at least daily bowel movements by increasing your fiber and water intake to help clear toxins.  And if detoxification reactions are too overwhelming, you can slow it down by reducing your dose of Genesis Gold® to 1/3 of your body weight for the first week and taper up your dose slowly.

Another potential side effect of Genesis Gold is gastrointestinal upset – gas, bloating, maybe some change in your bowel movements.

And that usually comes from intestinal dysbiosis which means that the friendly bacteria in your intestine are out of balance, and you may have any overgrowth of nonbeneficial organisms or even pathogens. If you have an overgrowth, particularly with Candida, you’re going to notice more bloating and gas when taking Genesis Gold®. That’s because the micronutrients in Genesis Gold® are not just feeding you, they’re going to feed your bugs. So if they’re friendly flora great, but if they’re not beneficial to you, you’re going to notice gastrointestinal upset until your intestinal flora is back in balance.   In fact, I use Genesis Gold® when I suspect a patient has intestinal dysbiosis and they don’t want to go through stool testing. Usually, within a few days, they’ll start noticing some bloating and then I treat either their Candida or SIBO -small intestinal bacterial overgrowth.  Once treated they can get back on the Genesis Gold® and they’re fine. 

The third most common side effect of Genesis Gold is a healing crisis.

When you’re healing, sometimes things get worse before they get better. Some people think of it as a side effect when all of a sudden their eczema flares or they feel a little moodier. But it’s actually your hypothalamus. When it finally gets the support it needs, your hypothalamus can get a little dysregulated before it regulates. And oftentimes you’re not going to appreciate it. For instance, hot flashes can tend to get a little worse before they get better. It’s your hypothalamus trying to correct your internal thermostat and it can take a few weeks before hot flashes subside. 

Sleep usually will start to improve, although, in the beginning, you may have more dreams even nightmares. That’s because your hypothalamus is not only detoxifying your physical body, but it’s also cleaning up your subconscious. The hypothalamus is the gatekeeper for your thalamus, your emotional center.  I suggest you keep a dream journal to record and try to decipher what’s going on.  This level of healing is a good sign that you’re physically in better balance. Healing the emotional and mental centers helps to completely heal the body. 

Sometimes what you believe is your most pressing health issue is not what your hypothalamus needs to get back in balance first.

For instance, if you start Genesis Gold® because you’re overweight and you haven’t detoxified first, you haven’t worked on your subconscious issues, your thyroid is out of balance, your adrenals are out of balance and your glucose metabolism is out of balance then all this needs to be corrected in order to lose that fat for good.   If your hypothalamus ramps up your metabolism and you begin burning more energy in your toxic cells, you will have more inflammation.  So your hypothalamus detoxes your cells first. That’s the great wisdom of your hypothalamus.  Sometimes what feels like a side effect is actually part of hypothalamic healing. 

Now, if you have allergies to any of the ingredients in Genesis Gold®, that’s different.   Although most people have hypersensitivities rather than true IgE allergies.  Once your hypothalamus becomes more in balance with Genesis Gold®, your immune system becomes less hypersensitive.  If you have any questions about Genesis Gold®, please join us in our Hormone Support Group. You can access it by signing up for my free Hormone Reboot Training. Healing your hypothalamus takes time – at least 90 days. So be patient with your body. It probably took a long time to get so out of balance in the first place. It’s my honor to help you on your healing journey as Genesis Gold® helps heal the root of your hormone and health issues.

  1. Christina Stanley

    What if i have acid reflux how can
    Genesis Gold effect this ?

    • Deborah Maragopoulos FNP

      I recommend that my patients with GERD take Genesis Gold with coconut water to help neutralize it
      Eventually balancing your hypothalamus can help stabilize your gastrointestinal tract

      • Christina Sta

        Thanks so much!!

    • Wentara

      I am experiencing numbness in my face behind my skin, and a heat sensation throughout out my head neck throat and stomach. And what seems to be brain fog. The reaction I used to have from gluten. I am not sure what this is. I only had few sips from the glass.

      • Deborah Maragopoulos FNP

        There’s no gluten in Genesis Gold. But it would definitely go slow. With my hyperreactive patients, I start them on Sacred Seven amino acids to calm their immune response while healing their hypothalamus until they can take the full Genesis Gold formula

        • Diana

          That is a concern that many have and is it going to go away or is This product genesis gold going to make us feel worse?

          • Deborah Maragopoulos FNP

            Side effects are usually detoxification reactions and yes, they go away

      • Deborah Maragopoulos FNP

        Genesis Gold has been tested and is gluten free – perhaps you are experiencing a dopamine reaction, which should pass

  2. Linda Miramontes Gray

    As you know, I’m allergic/hypersensitive to penicillin, sulfa & SHELLFISH. I now have angioedema on my face about 70% of the days of Nov, Dec & January 2021-2022. My primary physician wants me to stop all of my supplements, especially those with SHELLFISH.
    Please advise. Thank you, Dr Deborah

  3. Lorin S Kenney

    Hi Dr Deborah,

    I have two more weeks of breast cancer radiation treatment. I have weaned off of Bioidentical Estrogen and I’m having terrible hot flashes that keep me up at night made worse by the radiation. Should I wait until I am done with the treatment before I start Genesis Gold? I know I may have a detox effect with it and right now I don’t think I can handle any more sleeplessness. I am also traveling in May to see my son in Germany and I want to feel well enough for this trip so I’m not sure if I should wait until I get back or maybe stop the Genesis temporarily if I am having detox effects. Also, I am a Nutritional Coach and I am hoping to help women who have hormone-dependent cancers get their health back. Thank you so much, Lorin 310-498-3042

    • Deborah Maragopoulos FNP

      Hi Lorin
      Starting Genesis Gold to help balance your hypothalamus and mitigate hot flashes from estrogen withdrawal should it interfere with radiation treatment. Detox only lasts a few weeks. But I would recommend using Sacred Seven amino acids to hasten your healing

  4. Sandra Pierce-Jobe

    Five days into GG and at day 3 got horrendous gas, bloating and diarrhea that has yet to “calm” down. I take a full scoop and a “smidge more” because I weight 168 lbs. Should I just try 3/4 scoop for a bit?

    • Deborah Maragopoulos FNP

      Sounds like you may have intestinal dysbiosis
      GG feeds you and your beneficial and commensalism flora
      Cut the dose and consider treating the intestinal dysbiosis with DMAR SIBO therapy
