    Chapter 5: The Genomic Storyboard Your T Intersection

    • Testosterone is the first major crossroad of the hormone lifecycle. After your body converts progesterone into testosterone, functional gene variations determine what happens to that testosterone

  • 7

    Chapter 6: The Genomic Storyboard - Your E Intersection

    • Estrogen is the major female sex hormone, and much of female hormone health and wellness depends on what happens to estrogen after it is produced

  • 8

    Chapter 7: The Genomic Storyboard - Metabolite Clearance

    • Your body has an internal system for dealing with harmful estrogen metabolites. How effective that system is depends on functional gene variations in your DNA
