One of the biggest tragedies of human civilization is the precedence of chemical therapy over natural, of poison over food, in which we are feeding people poisons trying to correct the reactions of starvation. Screen Shot 2015-01-14 at 8.14.39 PM

Screen Shot 2015-01-14 at 8.14.24 PMWhen I first began seeing Merry I thought that my nutrition was pretty good but something was missing.  Even though I was seemingly healthy I wasn’t getting pregnant.  I thought that pregnancy would come pretty easily given my age and that I had no apparent conditions that would prevent it . . . but after months of trying I was frustrated.  It didn’t make sense!  Her guidance as to what supplements to take to kickstart my health and prepare my body for pregnancy really worked.  After seeing Merry for awhile and following her advice I did indeed become pregnant – I couldn’t be happier!Screen Shot 2015-01-14 at 8.14.39 PM
