Want to Know Your Genetic Risks?    genetic testing

Want to Prevent Health Problems and Regain Your Optimal Health?


Get Your “Comprehensive Genetic Analysis” Today!

Special 50% Off!

At this moment, your unique genetic makeup can be predisposing you to all types of medical disorders, even before symptoms actually show up. You may have been suffering for

years with nagging chronic health problems ans asking yourself, "Why me?"

Why live in the dark, when new medical technology can answer your questions.

Genetic Testing Can Provide a More Complete Picture of Your Health
Now, inexpensive Genetic Testing can provide insights into your risk factors for future health problems. They can show changes or variations in your DNA that could lead to disease. You can take charge of chronic ailments now, possibly even preventing them from happening.

In many cases you may be able to modify the function of your common and important genetic variants (or genetic variabilities) to maintain optimal health and decrease risk.

With proper nutritional supplementation and lifestyle changes that are unique to your genetic requirements, it may help change your genetic vulnerabilities.

How Do I Get This Genetic Information?
Tests such as the 23andMe, which can be ordered online directly by the consumer, can provide valuable information about general health risks and your ancestry. However, due to legal restrictions, 23andme are not allowed to reveal to you specifically what your genes are. The FDA is concerned that consumers will worry unnecessarily about specific genes. But the 23andme report will provide a link to your genes whihc can be run through an app (www.MTHFRsupport.com) which does reveal hundreds of possible common, important and modifiable quirky variants (called SNPs) .

These can be interpreted by a medical professional to help explain your health problems, predispositions to disease in your family and laboratory data that may define metabolic issues.

A positive result does not necessarily guarantee that you will ever develop a health condition, nor does a negative result suggesting reduced risk insure that you will never develop certain diseases. Environmental and lifestyle factors also contribute to health and wellness. The genetic information is helpful for a more complete health picture so you can modifiy your risks and keep certain genes relativley quiet and activate helpful genes.

A healthcare professional that is familiar with interpreting genetic testing can provide valuable insights. They can provide personalized recommendations based on the analysis of the data.

Interpretation of Genetic Tests
Dr. Charles Gant MD, PhD was taught in medical school that all human diseases and health conditions are caused by an interaction between environmental stressors and genes. Through his career over 4 decades, his expertise centered on diagnostic testing for the environmental stressors part – such as toxins, nutrients, emotional stress, metabolism, allergies and chronic infections – which is called functional medicine. Now a new age of medicine is finally opening up and he can see how the interaction between environmental stressors and genes explains the greater picture of his patient's health.

“If You Don't Test, You’ve Guessed!”
Isn’t your health too important to make guesses about?

The Comprehensive Genetic Analysis includes:

1. An appointment with Dr. Gant (at 50% off his regular cost) to go over your comprehensive genetic analysis.

Mind/Body Connection Series


Title: Meditation

mediation class NIHA in DC

Balance the Brain for Optimal Health!


Date:   TBD

Time:  6:30 – 7:45 PM

Location: National Integrated Health Associates

Presenter: Kuno Bachbauer, Dr.med. (Austria) LMFT (D.C.), CCEP

This is a lecture and mini-workshop Series "Understanding the Mind-Body Connection" with Kuno Bachbauer.

We invite you to explore an evening of meditation!

  • Get a basic understanding of why Meditation works.
  • Find out how self-awareness can strengthen your energy system and balance your emotional brain.
  • Learn how to become a "Master of your Emotions!"
  • Embrace a "Meditation Lifestyle" for optimal health.


What Kuno says about this class:

I learned about meditation over 40 years ago. It has changed my life from the first day that I tried it. In fact, the principles of meditation have become my lifestyle. It has become my preferred way of life. A way of being fully present in the world - as often and as deeply as possible.

I must confess, this path is not easy or natural for me. I have never been an “ideal meditator.” Not even close! I can’t sit still. I fidget. I have a hard time with the routine. I often fall asleep, and when I am awake, my mind wanders all over the place.

So why would I offer an evening of meditation?

The answer may be surprising, but, my experience is exactly what a lot of people experience when they begin to meditate! The struggle. The defeat. The failure at something that appears so simple.

I write this because I want you to understand that the “magic” and power of meditation lies in this struggle with one’s own resistance to be fully in the moment. Sticking with a practice of mediation teaches us resilience and persistence. And, once in a while, it may even offer wonderful moments of bliss, oneness and expansion!  Read the article


This event is over. Future classes will be listed here.




Kuno Bachbauer, LMFT, CCEP, Dr. med. (Austria), has a life-long interest in personal growth, mind-body medicine, and understanding the neuro-biology of emotion and spiritual transformation.

He practices Core Energetics at CoreConstellations Center in Rockville, MD., counseling (individuals, couples) at NIHA, and teaches internationally.

Family Constellation Therapy Workshop Datesconstellation workshop

June 20, 2020

Join us to experience how the "knowing field" can bring new understanding, conflict resolution and peace to your family or organization.

"I feel strongly that I am under the influence of things or questions which were left incomplete and unanswered by my parents and grandparents and more distant ancestors. It often seems as if there were an impersonal karma within a family, which is passed on from parents to children. It has always seemed to me that I had to ...complete, or perhaps continue, things which previous ages had left unfinished."  Carl Jung, Memories, Dreams, Reflections
This is an opportunity to experience this extraordinary process for yourself.

What is Family Constellation Therapy and How Does it Work?

Healing Ancestral Wounds through the Energy Field
Family Constellations vividly demonstrates the profound impact of our families and ancestors. Hidden family events and dynamics from past generations may manifest in our current lives as illness, relationship problems, addiction, financial instability, lack of purpose, depression, etc. Bert Hellinger, an international figure in the healing community, developed this method to uncover hidden dynamics which entangle us in fates not truly our own, but the legacy of others who did not resolve them in their lifetimes.

You must see and feel the constellation process in order to get it. Serving as a representative is like becoming an antenna that  receives information from the family soul of the client, somehow mysteriously present in the room. Unseen forces that have held family members captive in life patterns not previously understood come to light. Constellations reveal the root causes of pain and "stuckness" and offer an opportunity for healing and transformation.

What can this mean for you?  "Nearly everyone has a part of themselves that cannot find peace or come to rest. In the silence of our dreams, in our restless thoughts, in the darkest places of our hearts, the terrible experiences that befell our fathers and mothers, grandparents, aunts and uncles live on inside us.....

"We honor our ancestors' losses and soothe their pain by embracing that we are the living fruit of their sacrifices. They grieve when we suffer. They bless us when we take our lives and love well." -Dan Cohen,  author, I Carry Your Heart in My Heart


What You May Learn in a Family Constellation Workshop

  • Learn and witness the entanglements that may cause illness
  • Reveal dynamics that are not available through our conscious awareness
  • May help resolve health issues such as chronic poor health, depression, anxiety, addiction



The workshop is hosted by the Constellations Group.  Visit www.theconstellationsgroup.com for more information, or call  Carol Heil,  LSCW-C, 301-899-4841.
