Our Story begins with Dr. J

With a Doctorate in Chiropractic Medicine and a Bachelor of Science in Natural Sciences, and training in Functional Medicine, Dr.  J Dunn has been practicing Natural Medicine for over thirty years. 

And she knows first-hand both the physical and emotional pain of suffering without answers and being told by practitioners and well meaning friends and family that her depression and symptoms of chronic fatigue were things she should just "get over."

Thankfully she was introduced to biochemistry and the role it plays in genetic expression. As she learned more about her biochemistry it became apparent that her depression and chronic fatigue syndrome was caused my her a gene variation that meant she could not absorb and use vitamin D. Without sufficient D on board the neurotransmitters responsible for serotonin and dopamine--the happy hormones--she would never experience real happiness.

Once she added supplements that balanced out the gene variation, it was only a matter of days before her spirits lifted and she felt happy for the first time.

People have been coming to Dr. Dunn from all over the world for help with conditions and symptoms that have defied both traditional and naturopathic diagnosis and treatment.  In fact, by 2013 her practice was so successful that she had a waiting list of over a year for new patients!

She began to realize she needed to find a way to help far more people than she could treat personally. So, for the last 10 years, she shifted her focus to teaching and researching.  Because, despite her significant success in helping people individually, she knew there still had to be a simpler way to get to the root cause of the conditions and symptoms that plague millions, yet for which there is minimal to no relief available.

As Dr. Dunn shares: “Through this quest, I discovered the key to unlocking the secrets to optimal emotional and physical wellbeing – a way to easily identify the root cause of conditions such as anxiety, depression, and addiction.  That key is your genetic code.

Over the last 10 years, Dr Dunn and her team have been mapping the genes specifically related to brain chemistry to help her patients and teach other healthcare professionals how to help theirs.
