Wed, June 20, 7:00pm:Your subconscious mind knows everything that is, or ever has been, wrong in your body. A system called The Body Code provides a roadmap to tap into the subconscious mind to determine the actual CAUSE of any chronic condition in the body, whether it be pain, headache, or even disease and then TREAT it! It quickly determines whether the problem is structural, toxins, infection, trapped emotions, etc. The Body Code is simply the most advanced technique available for diagnosing and treating ANY health issue.
