GMOs are now a global issue affecting every generation from here forward

Use of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) in the US is quickly becoming one of the most dangerous and dramatic health threats ever to affect our planet. We want to make informed decisions about what we are feeding our families.  Why are we choosing blindly with our health, and the health of future generations with this unproven food experiment.  The use of GMO crops has been shown to dramatically increase the amount of highly toxic chemicals in the environment.

Please Join Us… As we hear from the World’s top researchers concerning GMOs and genetic engineering. These are the experts and researchers who have extensively studied GMOs and their impact on our health and environment, here to present their research with open discussion. Those in attendance in this life-changing event will hear first hand from the experts on these issues, which are currently impacting the US and the rest of the World.

Seminar Description

Autoimmune conditions, which now include at least 155 diseases, are one of the most rapidly-growing category of conditions, affecting some 50 million Americans. In this seminar, you will learn the specific causes of autoimmune disease, and natural approaches to preventing this rapidly-growing group of conditions at their source. You will also learn how to support patients with these conditions using natural medicine, including protomorphogens.

A protomorphogen (PMG) is the blueprint for each cell in the body. It is the nucleoprotein/mineral complex that each cell produces to regulate its own function and replication. Discovered in the 1940s, protomorphogens have been used by thousands of clinicians for decades to assist people in promoting cellular health, preventing degenerative disease, and helping correct autoimmune conditions. PMGs can augment the clinical success of practitioners of all disciplines, as they can be easily incorporated into any healthcare setting. This seminar will present the history, theory and clinical application of this safe, health-promoting therapy.

In this seminar, you will learn:

• The principles and clinical application of protomorphogens to aid in tissue repair
• The source of autoimmune disease
•  How to effectively use protomorphogens, diet, whole food concentrates and herbal medicine to support patients with autoimmune conditions
