DMG is an incredibly important nutrient that has far-reaching effects in the body from better cellular energy to strengthening the immune system. It is key to both the prevention and healing of disease. Building Wellness with DMG tells the amazing story of DMG and how this multi-functioning nutrient has the power to fight disease, ward off secondary infections, give you greater energy and stamina, improve sexual function, decrease epileptic seizures, and enhance brain function. Research suggests that because DMG boosts our cell’s most basic functions, it is a vital nutrient to take. The many benefits of DMG include: • Cardiovascular Disease-Decreases elevated triglyceride and cholesterol levels. Improves circulation, helps the body adapt to stress, decreases homocysteine levels, and promotes glutathione and SAMe synthesis. • Cancer-DMG has anti-tumor properties, modulates the immune system, and helps protect DNA. • Diabetes-DMG regulates sugar metabolism, helps the production of hormones like insulin, helps with cataract prevention, and acts as an antioxidant. • Immune System-Enhances the immune system by acting as an antiviral, antibacterial, and anti-fungal agent. • Athletic Performance-Increases oxygen utilization, decreases lactic acid formation, and makes energy production more efficient. • Other Conditions-Research also suggests that DMG is beneficial for autism, neurological disorders, circulatory insufficiencies, epilepsy, liver and kidney disorders, autoimmune disease, addictions, and respiratory disease.

The Family Link Between Autism and Extraordinary Talent
Author: Joanne Ruthsatz,Kimberly Stephens
We all know the autistic genius stereotypes. The absentminded professor with untied shoelaces. The geeky Silicon Valley programmer who writes bulletproof code but can’t get a date. But there is another set of (tiny) geniuses whom you would never add to those ranks—child prodigies. We mostly know them as the chatty and charming tykes who liven up daytime TV with violin solos and engaging banter. These kids aren’t autistic, and there has never been any kind of scientific connection between autism and prodigy. Until now. Over the course of her career, psychologist Joanne Ruthsatz has quietly assembled the largest-ever research sample of these children. Their accomplishments are epic. One could reproduce radio tunes by ear on a toy guitar at two years old. Another was a thirteen-year-old cooking sensation. And what Ruthsatz’s investigation revealed is nothing short of astonishing. Though the prodigies aren’t autistic, many have autistic family members. Each prodigy has an extraordinary memory and a keen eye for detail—well-known but often-overlooked strengths associated with autism. Ruthsatz and her daughter and coauthor, Kimberly Stephens, now propose a startling possibility: What if the abilities of child prodigies stem from a genetic link with autism? And could prodigies— children who have many of the strengths of autism but few of the challenges—be the key to a long-awaited autism breakthrough? In The Prodigy’s Cousin, Ruthsatz and Stephens narrate the poignant stories of the children they have studied, including that of a two-year-old who loved to spell words like “algorithm” and “confederation,” a six-year-old painter who churned out masterpieces faster than her parents could hang them, and a typically developing thirteen-year-old who smacked his head against a church floor and woke up a music prodigy. This inspiring tale of extraordinary children, indomitable parents, and a researcher’s unorthodox hunch is essential reading for anyone interested in the brain and human potential. Ruthsatz and Stephens take us from the prodigies’ homes to the depths of the autism archives to the cutting edge of genetics research, all while upending our understanding of what makes exceptional talent possible.
