YIN & YANG
The key to this is balance. There is an ancient, and still viable, philosophy that considers all medical conditions as a failure of balance in the organism. This has been best expressed in the Chinese concept of yin and yang.
The balance suggested by yin and yang is not static, and “homeostasis” doesn’t adequately capture the concept. The concept of yin and yang is dynamic balance — a process of constant change, intelligently responsive to the environment. This is how a healthy body naturally functions, and what NutraGenom seeks to support with its biotechnology innovations.
THE FUTURE OF HEALTH IS DYNAMIC BALANCE
The Mission of NutraGenom
NutraGenom was founded to develop innovative contributions to the advancement of human health.
We understand that as the stresses imposed by modern conditions increase, a new and broader understanding of health is required. The race to defeat one disease after another, while providing demonstrable benefits, cannot keep pace with our changing world. What’s needed are interventions that create a sustainable foundation for physical wellbeing.
THE MOLECULAR HYDROGEN BREAKTHROUGH
In pursuit of its mission, NutraGenom’s initial focus was the amelioration of nutritional deficiencies through analysis of DNA. The unexpected discovery of a new biotechnology—Zydrogen™ MHT—inspired a dramatic change of direction.
Knowing that we could capture and sustain large volumes of molecular hydrogen in the human body, we recognized that we had a far more powerful way to serve our primary purpose. H2 can rapidly restore the body’s capacity for dynamic balance, by reducing the inflammatory effects of oxidative stress throughout the system.
NutraGenom’s biotechnology can restore a yin-yang balance to reduce and even reverse some of the signs and symptoms aging.
The health potential of H2 is so significant, with so many applications, that we decided to devote ourselves exclusively to developing this new technology.
NutraGenon assembled a “team of leaders” to meet the challenge of placing Zydrogen™ MHT, and its multiple benefits, in reach of as many people as possible. We are now actively seeking partnerships that will help accelerate the fulfillment of our mission and vision.
