Dr. G and Evelyn Higgins, MD, discuss the physiology, biomarkers, and the genetic coding of addiction found in the individual.

Dr. Higgins’ work with addictions and primary mental health conditions led her to invent the patent-pending custom genetic panel utilized exclusively by her companies Wired For Addiction® and the Neurotransmitter Reset Program®.   In 1996, Dr. Higgins was selected as a community hero and bestowed the privilege of being an Olympic flame torchbearer, and she served as the official team doctor for the 1996 Somali Olympic team.

Dr. Higgins has authored several books, including her latest, The Dr. Higgins Guide to Health & Wellness, along with The Mystery of Happiness: A Step By Step Journal of Gratitude. She frequently presents her recognized philosophy, “Prescription for Life,” when she lectures on various health and wellness topics. Her upcoming book, Three Meetings, was the result of a 534-mile trek from southern France through the Pyrenees Mountains, and across the entire country of Spain. Learn more about Dr. Higgins at
