A long time ago, before 1950, food manufacturers used real, natural colors from plants to add colors to foods.

Over the last 100 years as we have doubled our life expectancy, the soft tissue glands which create our hormones are being forced to produce them longer than ever. Our increasingly stressful lives, worsening nutrition and lack of proper fitness combine to result in declining levels of hormones in our bodies. Both men and women over 40 experience these changes, whether mild or drastic, and each symptom affects the whole body in so many ways. When in balance, the body functions like a finely tuned instrument. When out of balance, there is disharmony and chaos within the system, as well as in other aspects of one's life.
You may feel a slight prick when the needle is inserted, but it is much less than the prick you feel during an injection, since the needles are much thinner. You may feel a heaviness, numbness, tingling, or mild soreness after the needles have been inserted.
