Research confirms that many adults continually struggle with a compromised immune system, infertility, and lack of sleep, relying on stimulants like caffeine and sugar to make it through the day. This can easily lead to a dependence on pharmaceutical medications by the time we reach retirement age.  Today, it's more common than ever to see young men and women in their 20s experiencing fluctuating hormones, declining libido, and infection. According to traditional Chinese medicine, all diseases and disorders are an expression of Yin and Yang caused by an inner imbalance.  Balancing hormones begins by strengthening digestion. In Chinese medicine, the Earth element is related to digestive force and can support healthy reproduction and balanced hormones.

Join Dr. Ritamarie and Donna Gates as they discuss how a gut- and gene-smart diet can help you balance hormones that may have gotten out-of-control.  This will help you lose weight, look younger, improve your mood, and get your sex drive back.
