Easy to read …
"I found Deborah's book, Your Personal Tuning Fork - The Endocrine System easy to read and full of solutions to everyday symptoms. I recommend it as ready reference and daily tuning guide towards greater well-being. As a professional, I use and share techniques from this book with clients towards becoming their own health-master." Jennifer Kallas(RZT, BRT, EFT, TFH) | Alternative Health Therapist  
Enlightening …
"Your Personal Tuning Fork: The Endocrine System is an enlightening, unique approach to the root causes of some of our most common health issues. Endocrine problems are often treated purely on a physical and medical level, but many people like myself find that it is not the magic solution they hoped for. In a clear, practical style, Bates shows us how to regain the power to nurture our own bodies by connecting the physical with the vast potential of the emotional and energetic realms. Truly fascinating and empowering!" Jules Watson author of 'The Raven Queen'  
Already and improvement in my health …
"I can already sense an improvement to my health! I thoroughly enjoyed reading Your Personal Tuning Fork: The Endocrine System. This book was both interesting and informative. I am keen to begin using the many methods suggested throughout the book. Even though I am relatively healthy I could relate to the information and will find using the exercises most beneficial to sustainable health. I can already sense an improvement to my health! Thank you Deborah for writing such an informative and useful book and I am sure it will bring much health and happiness to many." Joylina Goodings Author of Your Angel Journey  
Best money spent …
"Best money I've spent this year on books! As a health practitioner and counsellor this is isn't my normal kind of book purchase. I am super impressed with Deborah K Bates message – I've already begun adapting the suggestions to my clients and I've personally gained an increase in overall well-being. This is confirmed as fat loss (not water or muscle) as I have access to a DEXA body composition scanner. As the writer points out, the feeling of lightness is a refreshing one. Perhaps this is what the writer really means by OMG. It's easy to read, and the perfect daily reference guide. I'd make it compulsory reading for my business associates and those they advise as well as my clients and friends." Reflexologist

Very impressed …
"I have finished Deborah's book - Your personal tuning fork - The Endocrine system. I was very impressed with the holistic approach that Deborah applied to the writing of her book, she is obviously very knowledgeable and passionate about this topic and I am sure a very effective healer to many people. I guess she has also spent quite a bit of time talking to you about the health of all the systems in the body but in particular the Endocrine system as each gland plays such an important role in various hormone productions but how they also rely on each other for healthy function. For my own reference I have created a one page chart to help me boost all of the 8/9 endocrine glands as Deborah states that results can be noticed very quickly when we start to introduce the "Herbs and foods for a healthy endocrine" which form part of the last chapter of the book.” C. Chambers   
Fascinated …
"I started reading this book and just couldn't put it down. It was so well written and so easy to read. I was fascinated with Deborah K Bates approach and the information on how to live holistically and the unique connection between the endocrine system and the subtle energies such as the aura and chakras. She demonstrates well, the individual glands and related hormones in layman terms and true to the blurb, took me on a tour of the body which included other relationships such as the immune system, muscular, digestive and so on. I had not thought much about the endocrine system in the past but having experienced problems with my pituitary gland I can see now how it affects happiness and is affected by stress and other factors. I have already begun applying the techniques suggested in this book - Your Personal Tuning Fork the endocrine system - and already noticing changes. The symptom repertory, illustrations, self-care tips and tests made it easier. I even learnt how to test an imbalance in the chakras, cleanse and aura and test for an under active thyroid and pituitary gland! The daily health plan is something I refer to every day. Thank you Deborah." KS

Your Personal Tuning Fork the endocrine system

 A book about healing, hormones, the endocrine system and a way to sustainable health in a fragile world by Gold Coast award winning author Deborah K Bates.


[“Life has the answers and as a being of life so too we have the answers …”] 

An oriental fable tells of the ancient Gods trying to decide where to hide the power of the universe so that humans would not find it and use it destructively.
‘One God said, “Let’s hide it on top of the highest mountain.”
But they decided that humans would eventually climb the highest mountain and find the great power.
Another God said, “Let’s hide the great power at the bottom of the deepest ocean.”
Again it was decided that humans would eventually explore the depths of the sea.
The third God suggested, “Let us hide the great power of the universe in the middle of the earth.”
But alas, they realized that humans would someday conquer that too.
Finally the wisest God of all said, “I know what to do. Let us hide the great power of the universe within man. He will never think to look for it there!”’ 

Your Personal Tuning Fork: The Endocrine System is a book about seeking answers and finding them within.
Medical data demonstrates that humans possess great powers within, which most fail to use. These powers estimate that 75 per cent of humans use only 25 per cent of their physical powers. Based on those statistics, we are only half alive. Imagine if we were fully alive — now that’s working towards sustainable health!
