    Hi all, I know a lady who is pregnant and her baby has recently been diagnosed with triploidy and trisomy 13, which are genetic disorders resulting from extra chromosomes.

    They are said to be fatal, with most babies not making it to full-term even, and the rest dying shortly after. There is said to be no treatment.

    So I am wondering if anyone knows Ray's thoughts about genetic disorders, or thoughts from anyone else in the bioenergetic community. Ray seems to have a different view about the supposed immutability of genes; I think I've heard him say that they can be influenced by environment/nutrition.

    Perhaps bioenergetics has some kind of answer for altering an excessive chromosome state, or treating effects. Would appreciate any thoughts or leads. Thanks

    By what means was the baby diagnosed? fetal DNA?? Aminocentesis?? or Ultrasound?? Defects in the major organs can be picked up very early via ultrasound. Is the mother over 35 years of age? I would want to see what defects are picked up, if any, on ultrasound before considering termination.

    The mother should contact families that are currently caring for these children.

    Peat has done research with Huntington's which is also a devastating genetic condition.

    I'm currently trying to help a woman with high FSH and sporadic cycles. She's miscarried a few times, had one successful delivery and is 35 years old. I'd like to know what Ray says too.

    I don't know how it was diagnosed, and the mother is in her mid-twenties, but the baby has been born, contrary to expectations. I wasn't aware she was that far along.

    I think one of the two conditions can be survived for some years, but the other is fatal very quickly, usually before birth, or within a few hours. I have not gotten an update since she was born.

    I have just emailed Ray, if I have his email right. Will post his response.
