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.

donnagates01-copyDonna Gates, M.Ed., ABAAHP, is the international best-selling author of The Body Ecology Diet: Recovering Your Health and Rebuilding Your Immunity, The Body Ecology Diet of Growing Younger: Anti-Aging Wisdom for Every Generation.  She is also on a mission to change the way the world eats.  The Body Ecology Diet was the first of its kind – sugar-free, gluten-free, casein-free, and probiotic rich.  In 1994, Donna began teaching about fermented foods, and coined the phrase, “inner ecosystem”, to describe the network of microbes that maintains our basic physiologic processes – from digestion to immunity.  Over the past 25 years, Donna has become one of the most respected authorities in the field of digestive health, diet, and nutrition.  In 2013, she completed an Advanced Fellow with the American Academy of Advanced Anti-Aging Medicine.
