Flower Essences and Ortho-Silicic Acid’s Effect on Heavy Metal Neurotoxicity

Optimum physical health indicates a vital balance of our biochemistry and biophysics. This balance establishes our internal environment, where the cells function at the maximum level, which in turn determines our overall health. A balanced mineral count, one of the essential parameters for healthy biological terrain is determined by diet, digestion, emotional / mechanical stressors, and environmental pollution (specifically heavy metal overload or intoxication). The World Health Organization 1974 attributed environmental pollution, especially heavy metals, to be responsible for at least 80% of all chronic degenerative disease conditions, and pose the biggest threat to health. Difficult to avoid, are ever-present in our air, water, food, cosmetics, vaccines, household goods, medical drugs, paints, and much more, in addition to our mouths with silver-mercury amalgam fillings. 

Collage Flower Essences and Zeolite Clinoptilolite

1st Row Left to Right: Dark-field microscope cage like structures and energy in ortho-silicic acid (Zeolite)

2nd Row Left to Right: Bottlebrush and Carnation

3rd Row Left to Right: Red Fire Papaya,  Banana Blossom

Two gifts from nature that prove effective in addressing this ubiquitous toxicity are a combination of ortho-silicic acid, a superior form of clinoptilolite (zeolite) combined with a proprietary complementary blend of Flower Essences. The reason these work synergistically together is because there is an emotional component to physical toxicity.  Clinoptilolite (Zeolite) is a naturally occurring volcanic crystalline mineral. It has a unique honeycomb cage-like structure with a negative charge with the ability to bind and trap a multitude of toxins.

Root Clean Slate : This company has invested 16 years of research and developed a unique delivery system (proprietary patent pending) to ensure that the cage structure is cleaned and in the correct dimensions to grab onto heavy metals, viruses, and toxins. 

Adaptofleur Flower Essence blends: Cleanse & Detox are specifically formulated for men and women.  Works with the emotionally overloaded, toxic emotions, overwhelmed by significant changes, feeling the weight of the world on your shoulders, or physically burdened and for those that have trouble letting go.   

Adaptofleur Male Essence Blend

Emotionally enhances the male vitality and comfort-ability with sexuality, the hormonal balance, up or down-regulating libido as required, supports openness and nurturing by physical expressions of tenderness.

Adaptofleur Female Essence Blend

Traditionally used by aboriginal women for their hormonal and reproductive balance. For women on all levels emotionally, and mentally, in addition, it gives support to being open to conception and reproduction. Encourages the body to find its natural rhythms, blood sugar levels, and discourages cravings allowing optimum weight and balance. In combination, the two products have a synergistic effect of ridding the system of all forms of toxicity at the fundamental level.

Ingredients include: Flower Essences of Australia: Bottlebrush, Wild Potato Bush, She Oak, Papaya, Chrysanthemum, Mulla Mulla  Flannel Flower, Banana Flower Essence.

Events of 2019 and 2020 sent Vitamin Sales Soaring and made Altrient Liposomal Vitamin C the most Coveted Supplement on the Planet

It’s no surprise that since the beginning of this global health crisis, vitamin C sales have risen sharply as people look for anything that might help support their immune system and fend off infections. The search for ways to help proactively prevent ill health and bolster the immune system is a constant topic of discussion and debate with more people than ever taking matters into their own hands, turning to over the counter natural or alternative medicine for support.

Vitamin C has been the subject of a large amount of mainstream global media focus and scrutiny since February 2020, with several hospitals around the world initiating clinical trials involving vitamin C. The first results will be revealed on September 30th 2020 following a clinical trial conducted by Zhongnan Hospital of Wuhan University in Wuhan, Hubei, China who started a trial using intravenous high dose vitamin C on patients in February 2020.

Altrient vitamin C box with sachet

Altrient liposomal vitamin C by LivOn Labs is the world’s first premium liposomal vitamin C and was already regularly the best-selling liposomal vitamin C on Amazon before this unusual year, sent it into another level, with a 1000% increase in demand compared to 2019. European master distributor and retailer of Altrient C, Abundance & Health were unable to keep up with the demand due to supply chain issues that saw much of the world depleted of vitamin C  stock between March and July, during which time the Altrient C waiting list numbers climbed to thousands. Thankfully, supply has now caught up with demand and Abundance & Health are fully stocked in the UK and all over Europe and ready for what is expected to be a busy autumn/winter, with predicted sales of vitamin C to be ten times greater than during the same period last year.

LivOn Labs, pioneers of the liposomal vitamin C, developed the first version of this super absorbent supplement in 2004 when they successfully developed the world’s first premium liposomal vitamin C, using a cutting-edge technology that enabled a level of stability and targeted absorption never before achieved in the vitamin industry. They have spent the past 16 years perfecting the formulation and patenting the process, making it without question the most pure and potent vitamin C on the market with numerous double-blind placebo-controlled studies and personal testimonials to back up claims.

Word of mouth spread amongst the medical and alternative health communities about Altrient C and the global following grew organically including A list stars such as The Kardashians, Gwyneth Paltrow, Justin Bieber, Bella Hadid and many more major stars who have taken to social media to share their vitamin C secret. Altrient liposomal vitamin C has been nominated for and won many prestigious awards including most recently coming runner up in the British VOGUE Beauty Awards 2020 in the Best In Wellness Category.

Rest, Rest, Rest – The ME/CFS Mantra Covid Long-Haulers Need Right Now

If someone were fighting to save your life, would you ask them to hang on a minute, get yourself a cup of tea, cook a meal for someone else, go to work, or drive your car to a Covid test centre? If the ‘someone’ is your own immune system, and a virus is what it is fighting, then this is what you would be doing every time you got out of bed. Covid-19 ranges from being an illness with no symptoms or very few, right up to massive, multisystem complications and death.  The point at which you begin to experience symptoms is the point at which the virus is the most active.  From then on, viral activity diminishes as immune activity increases.  The danger, from that point, is the the immune system may go into the dangerous hyperactivity which can overwhelm the body with inflammation. 

Nancy Blake + Beginners Guide to ME-CFS

Those most likely to succumb are those whose immune systems are either overwhelmed with viral load, or whose immune systems are already challenged by other medical conditions, or weakened by a life in unhealthy social conditions and the stresses of poverty.  For those with darker skins, the protection against the suns rays our colour gives us comes with a corresponding difficulty in absorbing vitamin D, which may be adding to vulnerability.

The Rule, which could save many, comes from the era of childhood diseases before antibiotics or vaccines:  in 1940s USA, you were expected to cope with measles, chicken pox, mumps, whooping cough, German measles. You prayed not to get polio. You were already vaccinated against diphtheria, tetanus, and small-pox, but nothing else.  These diseases, very dangerous in adulthood, usually (but not always) mild in childhood, could maim or kill, and all we had was The Rule: When you are sick, you have to go to bed and stay there.

Many people’s immune systems can identify and attack Sars-CoV-2 effectively. Clearly, the more effectively our immune system has been able to overcome the virus, the less danger there is of its going into life threatening overdrive.  The Rule applies.

Long Haul Covid 19

There is a cohort of people who continue to have recurrent symptoms, some serious. This pattern seems ominously similar to the pattern of recurrence of symptoms in ME/CFS. But we know unequivocally that this recurrence is caused by exertion.  In February 2015 The Institute of Medicine spelled it out:  The defining feature of this disease is that ‘exertion of any kind – physical, cognitive or emotional – may have adverse consequences in many organ systems….’  - multisystem damage. The viruses most closely associated with ME/CFS are from the Epstein Barr family, which includes the polioviruses.  Sars-CoV-2 is from the picornavirus group, which causes respiratory diseases.

Very different and Unrelated Causes.

But the confused and relatively ineffective immune responses are similar. Some of the ME/CFS community welcome the possibility that because of Long Haul Covid, ME/CFS may begin to be taken more seriously.  Ramsay found that, for people with ME, prognosis depended on how much their life-style allowed them to minimize exertion and maximize rest.  Six months bed-rest could result in complete recovery.  Even today, when ‘bed rest’ is such a stigmatized prescription that our government never prescribed it in the guidelines for people coming down with covid, there are occasional reports of recovery when a courageous GP has suggested six months rest.

This is the right time to renew and give out the message in my ‘Beginner’s Guide to ME/CFS’ and it’s paean to rest….covid long-haulers, take note!

Successful Treatment of Chronic Pain: Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-controlled Trial Demonstrates Efficacy and Safety of Bioresonance According to Paul Schmidt

I. The Importance of a Double-Blind, Randomised, Placebo-Controlled Study

Rayonex Biomedical GmbH,  headquartered in Lennestadt, Germany is a well-established medical device company of over 35 years which currently operates in 45 countries worldwide. Rayonex represents bioresonance according to Paul Schmidt, a cause-oriented treatment approach named after Paul Schmidt, company Founder and Engineer. Rayonex Biomedical GmbH is certified to develop, produce and distribute medical devices according to DIN EN ISO 13485:2016 and is audited and certified by TÜV Nord on a yearly basis.


Rayonex manufactures two medical devices: the high-med device, the Rayocomp PS 1000 polar 4.0 med, which can be used as a stationary device in a doctor's surgery and the portable Rayocomp PS 10 med, primarily for patients receiving therapy at home. While in the past this evidence could be provided through reports, new medical device regulation requires the submission of the highest level of scientific evidence of the effectiveness and safety of the device. This evidence needs to be in the form of a double-blind, randomised study and the study must receive a positive vote from the ethics committee.

Therefore, two groups were created in the run-up to the study:  One with the Rayocomp PS 1000 polar 4.0 med. taken from the production line, and the other with inoperable devices, which were the placebo. Both devices looked and worked in exactly the same way. However, the dipole antenna system, which is normally used in the application of bioresonance treatment according to Paul Schmidt, was missing in the placebo devices.

At the start of the study, a validated computer program randomly (randomized) determined which device each new patient would be treated with for the entire duration of the study. Thus, neither patient nor the clinical investigator (double-blind) applying the treatment knew during the study whether the Rayocomp PS 1000 polar 4.0 med. being used was therapeutically effective or not. For this reason a randomised, double-blind study is considered to be the best type of study because unblinding (telling patients and investigators which devices really worked) only takes place after the results have been analysed.

At the end of studies like these, patients are usually careful about what they say and do not appear enthusiastic because they don't want to say that the therapy helped them and then to find out that they had been treated with a placebo device. This is why randomized, double-blind studies are held in such high regard. It is because results are based on completely objective, somewhat conservative accounts.

II. Summary of the Study Results

The patient and user information presents the results of a clinical prospective, double blind, randomized, study of the highest scientific level that aims to provide objective proof of the performance and safety of the Rayocomp bioresonance device in patients with cervical spine syndrome. A number of different programs were created by experts in the field of bioresonance according to Paul Schmidt, which eventually gave rise to the study’s compact program. The original compact program and over 180 other pre-existing compact programs are available on the Rayocomp devices. In total, 52 patients participated in the study. All study participants received 10 treatment sessions with the compact program within a period of 70 days. The final report concludes that the devices are safe and effective to use. The following are citations from Chapter VII of the final report:

"There was no change in the NDI (Neck-Disability-Index) of the placebo group but a significant improvement in the NDI of the group treated with the Rayocomp bioresonance device." "The placebo treatment did not achieve significant improvements in neck headaches, back pain, shoulder pain or muscle tension, while treatment with Rayocomp bioresonance device showed significant improvements.

"In terms of physical capacity, patients receiving the placebo treatment showed no significant improvement, while patients treated with the Rayocomp bioresonance device showed significant improvements in all parameters."

"The SF-36 parameters of physical functioning, physical role functioning, bodily general health perceptions, vitality, social functioning, emotional role functioning and mental health achieved no significant improvement in patients receiving placebo treatment. Whereas, all of the parameters showed significant improvement in patients receiving treatment with the Rayocomp bioresonance device."

"Overall, there were significant differences in how patients answered the question of whether they would recommend the treatment to others. All patients in the Rayocomp group said that they would recommend it, while only around a quarter of patients in the placebo group said the same."

"Furthermore, the study confirms that the Rayocomp PS 1000 polar 4.0 bioresonance device is safe. Based on the results and information provided in the manual, no adverse effects were detected during this clinical trial that could alter the risk profile of the Rayocomp PS 1000 polar 4.0 bioresonance device. The favourable safety profile of the medical device was confirmed. It was shown to be safe when used according to the instructions in the manual."

This scientific study documents to patients and therapists alike that bioresonance according to Paul Schmidt is both safe and effective to use. A copy of a detailed booklet of the study entitled Successful Treatment of Chronic Pain can be obtained by contacting Rayonex Biomedical UK (contact details below) at the special promotional price of just £5.00 each plus shipping costs. (The book normally costs 25 Euros). 

Rayonex Biomedical GmbH have also announced the date of their 3rd World Congress with the title "Successful Treatment of Chronic Pain", which will be hosted online via Zoom on the 25th of April 2021. Participation is free of charge but places are limited. Registration is now open for this exciting event via the following link:

Mushroom Nutrition as a Disease Modifying Therapy for Neurodegenerative Conditions?- Part II

To date the development of a pharmaceutical solution to Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) to reduce the increase of both Tau and β-Amyloid protein production has been disappointing. Should clinicians consider the use of mushroom nutrition to:

  1. Reduce neuroinflammation;
  2. Combat viral infections that are triggering early stage (MCI) and late stage dementia;
  3. Establish a healthy microbiota in patients with such conditions;
  4. Increase neurogenic reserve.

In essence, can mushroom nutrition slow the progression of neurodegenerative conditions such as Alzheimer´s disease by acting as a disease modifying therapy until a pharmaceutical product can be approved?

Combat Viral Infections Triggering Early Stage Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) And Late Stage Dementia

As early as in 2000, there was a body of thought led by Dr Frank La Ferla (University of California, Irvine) that the Herpes simplex virus (HSV-1) was linked or triggered the process leading to Alzheimer’s Disease. In 2008 and 2013, this link was further explored by Professor Ruth Itzhaki (University of Manchester). 

Finally in 2018, researchers at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York concluded that two strains of human herpes virus (Human Herpes Virus 6A (HHV-6A) and Human Herpes Virus 7 (HHV-7)) were found in the brains of people with Alzheimer´s disease at levels up to twice as high as in those without Alzheimer´s.  This Mount Sinai study was the first to use a data-driven approach to study the impact of viruses on Alzheimer´s and to identify the role of HHV-6A  and HHV-7 in the disease. This was also the first evidence that integration of HHV genomes into human brain genomes may play a role in the etiology of Alzheimer´s.

Since 1999, MRL has been conducting clinical studies on the biomass properties of different mushrooms. This work has resulted in the confirmation that the biomass form of Coriolus versicolor (Coriolus-MRL) has anti-viral properties. In 2004, MRL funded a 36 patient open-label study to demonstrate that the biomass form of Coriolus versicolor was effective in Chronic Fatigue Syndrome patients suffering from high viral  titres levels of either Epstein Barr Virus or Cytomegalovirus or Human Herpes Virus (HVV6) or a combination of all three viruses. After eight (8)weeks of Coriolus-MRL supplementation (3g/day for two weeks followed by 1,5g/ day for six weeks) the following was noted:

  1. 1.T-cells [%CD3+CD26] showed Increased activation in two thirds of the patients before and after review, depression in 22% of patients and 11% remained static.
  2. 2.T-cells [CD3+HLA-DR+] showed activation in 77% and decreased activation in 11%. T-helper suppressor cells were variable in their original presentation.
  3. The normal range of natural killer cells is 5 – 20% and the cell count is 75-1800 cmm. Natural killer cells were found to be low in these patients before treatment, the average being 129.64 cmm. An increase in natural killer cells following treatment with Coriolus was demonstrated with the average being 175 cmm, which is an increase of 35%. 

Monro, J Coriolus  J Integrative Medicine 8:101-108. 2004.

In 2005, MRL funded a 38 patient study in the Portuguese Institute of Oncology (Coimbra, Portugal) the use of Coriolus versicolor (Coriolus-MRL) in LSIL HPV which demonstrated that supplementation at 3 g per day, over one year, resulted in a cervical regression rate of 72,0% versus 47% in a control group. After one year the HPV viral load was not detected in 90% of the patients when compared to 8% in the control group

Powers of Positivity; Accessing Quantum Field; Creating Outcomes; Attracting Timelines; Infinite Possibilities with Sarah Williams of Organic Aromatherapy

There are easy ways to begin this process now. Below I outline 5 simple steps:

  1. YOUR thoughts: Are they positive or negative. Be aware of inner dialogue (how you are speaking to yourself daily, hourly and in each moment). Consider your personal daily choices, do they promote your personal security , safety, immunity or your fears and worries? We are made up of many layers in our quantum structure like Russian nesting dolls; physical body , emotional body , mental body and spiritual body each influencing the next. Look at the body mind spirit connection. Remember the science of psycho neuro Immunology (PNI) , where attention flows energy goes , where is your focus?  Are you focusing on portraying Illusions of insecurity or safety, trust/ doubt/ fears?
    Programming from pre-birth and childhood come into play as an intrinsic part of our programming which may influence our lives.

    Woman in Bubble Image

  2. YOUR words : vibration,  power of prayer , look at the work of Dr Masuro  Emoto ( programming water). Consider the power and effectivity of phyto-biophysics and homeopathy, we are made mainly of water molecules .
  3. YOUR actions: when you want to manifest, then consider that we are vibrational beings in a vibrational world where frequency and vibrating at a particular velocity are the most important factors. Look at the immense power of using the practice of meditation, wish boards, parking fairies. Visualisation is key, i.e. Jumping over a puddle ( if you believe and SEE yourself on the other side all clean and dry then you will be correct but conversely if you see yourself wet and muddy then you will manifest this too! ! ). This is an established method used by successful sports and business people achieve records and success. “What goes around comes around”(karma ), the power of prayer and the fact that distant healing exists and has been scientifically proven. Re-Claiming your personal  Sovereignty, is important too.
  4. YOU create: via sacred geometry  thoughts into matter) , Platonic solids, where attention goes energy flows. Consider the law of attraction, your personal magnetic fields, the toric field created by your heart energy (the science of Heart Maths ). We each have infinite options in any second of every moment of every day , of what choice or action to choose , which affects our quantum structure and potential movement forward. Fear creates fear and joy creates joy.
  5. YOUR reality : is limitless , as is soul growth potential, divine plans . Here we can consider the power of miasmic pre- birth agreements or “Martyr/ controller/ rescuer blueprints archetype lifetimes etc. 

Infinite possibilities are open to each of us and restricted only by personally imposed limitations. Life is a ‘green screen’ like in the movies, where YOU are playing the lead role in YOUR own personal “movie” . YOU are your own writer, director  and producer too.

There has been much written on the powers of cosmic ordering. The Law of attraction. What you visualise is attracted to you i.e. deepest fears or magnificent abundance.

Finally I have worked with numerous wise ones and indigenous shamen who all share the same messages.  There is nothing to fear but fear and forgetting to clean your bubble/ personal space. This is a process that I share freely on my website.

Turning Point Training Offers Postgraduate Courses in Craniosacral Therapy and Homotoxicology

Our students come from a variety of backgrounds both in conventional and holistic disciplines. This allows an exchange of information and experience that enriches the learning experience. Courses are mixture of leading-edge, scientifically based theory and clinical and practical tuition. Students are encouraged to explore and develop their gifts and talents in bringing their unique experience to the disciplines taught. Students are thus empowered.

Jonathan and Rosemary Lawrence + CranioSacral Course

Top: Jonathan Lawrence BA DO Cert Ed and Rosemary Lawrence Dip BFD Cert Clin Hom Cert Ed

Bottom: Craniosacral Course 2019

Small groups help to facilitate this experience. Turning Point teachers are enthusiastic and experienced practicing therapists who keep their knowledge up to date.

The philosophy of Turning Point encompasses the idea that medicine is an art informed by science. We believe that the conventional materialist paradigm is very much out of date and that scientific knowledge has now reached a point where much of holistic medicine can be incorporated into a new paradigm. Turning Point courses introduce the concepts of research and encourage students to critically evaluate current information.

  • Craniosacral therapy is based on the relation of the relationship between the structure and function of the body and health. Specific, gentle and skilled manipulation can restore the structure-function relationship supporting the patients’ own homeostatic mechanisms. This non-invasive and safe therapy can be used on patients of all ages from the new-born to the elderly.
    The Level 1 Practitioner Course consists of 7 modules over 8 days including practical tuition. In addition students have to complete a portfolio of cases and complete an exam. Practical skills are assessed during the course. This course is recognised by the CMA.
    Level 2, Advanced CST consists of five modules; Mother/Baby and Reproductive, Visceral, Immune System and Lymphatics; Physical and Emotional Trauma, and Dental, Facial and Cranial Base. Assessment is via Case studies.
    These courses are led By Jonathan Lawrence
  • Homotoxicology is based on the idea that disease results from toxic load. In modern life we are subject to toxins from a variety of sources. This has the effect of stressing the immune system leading to ill health. Accurate prescribing can help the body to gently detoxify aiding the restoration of homeostasis.
    The remedies used are be single potency homeopathic remedies or combinations of remedies to achieve a specific physiological response.
    There is access to online training via the Society of Homotoxicology
    We provide further courses in Electro Acupuncture According to Voll (EAV) for suitably qualified students. This involves electro-acupuncture assessment of meridans and clinical application of findings.
    Training is via small tutorial groups led by Rosemary Lawrence.

Sayer Complementary Health Thriving in the Covid-19 Pandemic

During the uncertainty of the Covid-19 pandemic we have all experienced a number of challenges. In particular I have noted an increase in emotional issues such as anxiety, sadness and insecurity.  Even though some restrictions have eased there is, in my perception, fear about returning to ‘normal’. Homeopathic remedies available over the counter can be helpful in these situations, offering relief from short-term anxiety but those of a deeper nature need to be addressed by a qualified practitioner.

June Sayer + Homeopathy + Reiki

At my practice, Sayer Complementary Health, based in Burnham on Crouch, Essex, I have continued homeopathy via Zoom, Skype or Facetime technology. This has given my clients the ability to have their ‘face-to-face’ consultations without worrying about social distancing; this has been very well received. The range of ailments that homeopathy can help is vast because each person’s case is unique to them so the homeopathic remedy chosen will be closely matched to their presenting symptoms.

Aside from my homeopathic practice, I also provide training courses in Homeopathy and Reiki. The Homeopathy at Home course helps you learn how to select homeopathic remedies to address minor ailments such as coughs, colds, headaches and sore throats and could negate visiting the doctor.  Homeopathic remedies are non-toxic, non-addictive and safe for all ages. This course is easily accessible via Zoom.

The Homeopathic Practitioner Diploma course is an in-depth apprenticeship style course spread over three years.  You will learn about the history of homeopathy and the philosophy of working with acute cases through to understanding the depth of a more chronic case and how to prepare a case protocol.  Anatomy and physiology as well as pathology and disease are also covered.  Home study and written assignments are essential to the course.  Upon successful completion of all the necessary criteria you will be entitled to register as a homeopathic practitioner with a registering organization and build your career as a homeopath.

As a Reiki Master/Teacher I hold regular Reiki courses in Essex and while social distancing is being practiced, Reiki distant healing is being sent regularly to all her Reiki students.  For information there are three levels of Reiki that are taught.  Level one and two are one-day courses.  Shoden, level one opens you up to the healing power of Reiki and enables you to carry out Reiki healing on yourself and your family.  Reiki level 2 Okuden, is suitable for people who have already studied level one and are familiar with the Reiki healing energy. At the end of level two, you will be able to offer Reiki sessions to the general public although you will need to have the relevant complementary health insurance cover in place to do so.  Pre-course material is provided for both Shoden and Okuden so that you may study the materials prior to attending the practical course.  A Certificate of Attendance is provided on completion. 

Should you wish to take your Reiki one stage further then the Reiki Master/Teacher Course also comes complete with a comprehensive manual as well as audio and visual materials and it is this course you would need to undertake in order for you to be able to prepare others on their journey with Reiki.  Reiki consultations are held in Burnham on Crouch, Essex.

The College of Ayurveda and Yoga Therapy (UK) – Pioneer Integrative Medicines Approach

Ayurveda is the most ancient system of medicine known to mankind. It emerged from the Vedic wisdom expounded by the ancient seers of the culture that arose in the Himalayan foothills. It is a science-based healthcare approach which promotes wellbeing and treats illness through assessment of the biochemically unique aspects of each patient and individually tailored interventions to restore psychological and physiological imbalances.

College of Ayurveda UK Image

The college is accredited by the British Complementary Medicines Association (BCMA) and is also pioneering Ayurvedic education in France, Germany, Belgium, Holland, Croatia and Japan.

The College also hopes to start a low-cost clinic at their new premises that helps patients to make informed lifestyle decisions and receive consultations and treatments. The College website ( has a form where you can register your interest in hearing about the clinic.
