The NYS Attorney General’s offices used DNA barcoding to assess the levels of DNA in seven herbal supplements: Echinacea, garlic, gingko, ginseng, saw palmetto, St. John’s wort and valerian.
1) The NYS Attorney General’s use of DNA barcode testing likely overstates the problem with herbal supplements sold by mass-market retailers
2) Always purchase vitamins and supplements in partnership with your healthcare provider—they are experts in quality and efficacy
3) DNA barcode testing is exciting, but not quite ready for prime time—and when used alone it does not present a complete quality assessment
4) The Emerson Quality Program is the best source for trusted supplements—EQP Partners undergo extensive third-party testing to verify quality
Emerson Ecologics provides quality supplements and herbs to health care practitioners, doctors and veterinarians.

As the New Year approaches I would like to share my family's Borscht recipe as a healthy beet soup to enjoy.
5 Large Beets
1 Onion (optional)
Free Range Chicken Broth
Fresh Lemon Juice
Salt & Black Pepper
Boil the beets in a pot of water for 35 to 45 minutes—until beets are soft. Drain the beets keeping the beet juice and set aside.
Sauté the chopped carrots and onion in organic butter, or boil the carrots with the beets and omit the sautéed onions.
Bring 2 ½ cups of the Chicken broth with 2 ½ cups of the beet juice back to a boil, then lower the temp and add the beets, carrots and onions. Mix with an immersion blender and add 2 tablespoons of lemon juice, 2 tablespoons of white vinegar and 1 teaspoon each of salt and pepper to the soup with ½ cup of chopped fresh dill. Simmer another 15 minutes.
Serve hot of chilled with a dollop of organic sour cream and sprinkle of fresh dill on top.
Cheers! Dr. G

"Most of these cures for dejection, ways to drive out the dreaded dolor; are old news when considered uniquely, through their link to the brain we learn more. When we understand the physiology of depression, then we will naturally begin thinking of things that produce states of calmness, happiness, hope, safety, and peace. Once created, our brain will either realize that we are safe, preventing the survival shift; or kick us out of it when seeing that we are well."
